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.

I like Kellen but the character of Kiera is NOT likable at all. I wanted to hit her over the head with a 2 x 4 repeatedly.
I want to find out what happens to the other characters and to Kellen so I'll buy the next one but this isn't my favorite story.
Didn't like the reader at all.
The background in the audio is terrible and very distracting at times. Audible, whether I'm spending a credit or buying with cash, you really should fix the sound.
i don't know a man alive that would put up with this girl's... issues.
i think my reaction to her being kicked in the head pretty much summed up my feelings for this book. i actually hoped it knocked some sense into her & would FINALLY put an end to her wishy-washy decisions. at times i felt like my 6 yr old had a better grasp on her emotions than this chick. no body is that oblivious.
Perhaps it is just me but I could not get into this book. If I have rated it unfairly after listening to 2 chapters, then my bad. Don't waste a credit.
Really really young women that don't mind a very immature lead character.
Keira was just so annoying I couldn't get past her. The constant flip flopping, acting like she was torn apart by hurting Denny and Kellan but still doing it... and getting more and more horrible. Her constant statements of "irritation flashed through me" really drove me crazy.
Everything that entailed her begging for Kellan to stay, and Keira sneaking into Kellan's room while Denny slept.... pretty much every scene after Denny came back.
This book would have been way better if the tension between Kellan and Keira went on longer without acting on it. And if Keira could have just made a decision and been a grown up, independent person with the ability to take care of herself. she was just so weak and incapable of doing anything by herself... like starting school by herself or Denny being gone a couple of months... she couldn't cope with ANYTHING without a man which is why she cheated on Denny within hours of "breaking up". It was just ridiculous. I like this genre normally, so immature content isn't beneath me, but this was just beyond immature and lame.
I can't tell what was worse, the narration or the plot/main character!? I couldn't even get halfway through part 2... Waste of money. Also I'm Australian and one of the main characters in the book is Australian and the narrator puts on the worst Australian accent I have heard- it's offensive.
Definitely not, I haven't even been able to finish this book!
Maybe, I'd hate to discount her completely because of a poorly executed story and characters.
The heroine was so painful and annoying! All she did was whinge! I've never read or listened to a story with a more dependent, needy and selfish heroine! I wanted to slap her!
Kiera. WTH! I could follow along with the story up through the first "indiscretion". I even could side with her at that point but after that, I just wanted to slap her and turn off the book. I struggled through more and more of the book and the frustration just kept dragging on. Sure there was passion in the book but it wasn't enough to compensate for the rest of the story.
None. Denny was oblivious in the beginning (but "perfect" the remaining time), Kellan was vindictive and, honestly, the one who let the whole "cuddling" thing start in the first place, and I've already voiced my issues with Kiera.
The sound of the book was bad. It sounded if she was in a tunnel. It sounded as though she was talking through a funnel.
No problem with the story just the sound.
Yes she sounded as though she was in a tunnel.
Have the lady rerecord the book so that she could be in a different area.
Yes. Great story that I just could not quit listening to. A love story that tugs at your heart and your nerves... you want to smack them, hold them and kiss them all in five minutes!!
When Kellan spilled out all of his feelings for her!
She was good at switching her voice between characters. I have a hard time with that on most books. This narrator did a great job.
When they finally decided to be together..
The audio was terrible on this one. I could hear the narrator fine and she was great but there was alot of background noise going in and out. Sounded like they were taping this in a room of someones house...
kelen, so patient and sweet.
I feel bad because I was cheering for Kelan ..Denny sounds like such a great guy but I cant help fall for the bad and damaged guy... This was a great love story...Only bad thing about this book is that I wish there were more good times with Keira and Kelan..
This my first book by S C Stephens and it was a welcome surprise. I will be looking for her first book Effortless, hoping it is just as good.
How can it hurt so much to protect the one....s.... you love.
