For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart.
Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes... and none of them will ever be the same.

When I started this book I was so annoyed, I thought I had bought another YA book. The dialog was soooo juvenile. Every other sentence was, "I blushed", "My whole body blushed", &I thought I will never get through this book. Then as it became an interesting seduction I enjoyed some of it. But then it took on that unreal, ugly, psychology dialog. Which I hate. Having a "Code Phrase", to stop all action no matter what. Where did this come from.
In the beginning I thought Kellan might be bi-sexual. He was such a player...and targeted her from the beginning but she did also. I wanted to slap her more than once. But then I took the time to remember when I was late teens/early 20's. If I had been in this circumstance I can't say I wouldn't have made some of the same mistakes. But while the "pull&tug" between the two men that Kiera is not taking the responsibility for encouraging to say the least. I kept saying out loud...get out of that house. Go home&grow up. I couldn't respect Kiera but I could appreciate her immaturity in the very grown up world she has placed herself in.
It is frustrating Kiera thinks she is going to be "The One" that changes this bad boy.
3 downloads where unnecessary for this storyline. She could have made all this happen in 1.
I really wish I could find out what the "target audience" is for each book. I don't think I would have purchased this book.
I really tried to like the narrator but I didn't care for her. But she sounds age appropriate for the book. But mostly I blame the author.
This is my favorite series.
As far as I am concerned there is no comparison.
Very pleasant voice. Brings the story to life.
The book is like a roller coaster! It is ful of highs and lows to keep the reader engaged.
I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.
I believe that this book may fight its way to the top two on my list of favorite love stories. Yes, love stories. I apologize to some of the indignant reviewers who have claimed this to be a morally corrupt play on passions and deciet, but although the affair was wrong, this is a love story. Don't let the bitter people steer you away from this story- the only people that is story ISN'T for are those who've never loved. For everyone else, the messages in this story (including the consequences of cheating) make it worth your while. All of my above claims would be worthless if this book were poorly written, or even poorly narrated, but it was not. The writing is correctly focused for a first person story of an intelligent, shy woman, and the narration was equally well chosen. The book managed to stay interesting and superficial, while still casting deeper meanings and understandings without throwing around flashy metaphors or faked heroism.
I felt that this story uniquely affected me, and that it has the potential to affect everyone in a slightly different way. There is no trashy sexual descriptions, and this level of romantic writing has raised my standards of what a true love story should feel like.
If only because the narrator didn't butcher an Australian accent. Definitely worth a second listen!
Great story! Found myself talking/yelling at the radio commuting to work... the main character was awful at being bad but it was a train wreck you just couldn't tear your eyes away from. Every wrong turn you knew it was just going to get worse and worse. The author did not disappoint! Great story!
Kellan Kyle. This beautiful rock star with such a low sense of himself.
Yes, not all books suck you in and make you feel like part of the story..
The writer does such a good job with the characters, you end up, laughing, crying and actually feeling what the characters are going though...
Rebekkah does great, you feel in her voice the emotion..
I love this trilogy. 50 shades with less sex & more story.
I love Kiera. She is very innocent & reminds me of my little sister.
I didn't want the trilogy to end. I actually dragged out the last couple of chapters.
Please write more!!!
Yes, I have a problem..AUDIOBOOKS! I am so addicted stories that make you feel naughty, laugh, cry, or scream at your phone!
This is an emotional read! It may take a few hours to get into but once your in, you cant put it down! A young lady caught between a loving reliable boyfriend and a hot magnetic lover is forced to make a choice between staying safe or steamy passion. Did I mention the guys are extremely close friends? She wants her cake and eat it too! Who dont? Yea, its a pretty realistic story. The last few chapters will break your heart. Almost anyone who has ever been in love will relate! Thoughtless has set the bar pretty high for the rest of the series.
There were some great points in the book, but Kiera's inability to make a decision between the two men was annoying. Half of the story was why she loved Kellen and or Denny and why she couldn't break their hearts. It kept repeating this over and over and OVER! The male and female characters were interesting, sexy, and well developed. The story line was good, the sex was hot, but it shouldn't have taken 20 hours to get to the end of the story.
If it wasn't so repetitive. I didn't buy the second book due to the repetitiveness in the first book.
She was smooth and seemed effortless in her narration between male and female characters. It isn't Rebekkah's fault, but there was some horrible background noise that was distracting to the narration.
Definitely. Movies can edit content and be able to make a point without having to repeat it over and over again.
YES!! The story is amazing and Rebekkah Ross did it justice!!!
This is a series on its own!!!
YES!! And then again and again!!!
Highly recommend all 3 books in series on audio!!!
