    "It summed it up!"

    I feel I have to give this book 4 stars and not 5 because Thoughtless is the only 5 in this series, but any other series this book would have been a 5...you just started too good SC! I feel like I know Kiera and Kellan...much like I knew Anna and Christian, but unlike 50, this was a story I could see happening....small town girl follows a guy cross country and then falls for the dreamy rock God...I think this kind of story has actually happened, which makes it charming.

    I don't condone cheating, but I understand the concept of finding your other half and no matter how moral you want to be about it what can you really do when that happens?

    The series was amazing, this book cleaned up the loose ending on everyone who was practically ever mentioned in the series...and it wrapped it up nicely.

    If you read the other 2...even if you didn't like number 2 that well, this is a must read.

    "This girl is a constant WHINER!!!!"
    Would you try another book from S. C. Stephens and/or Rebekkah Ross?

    They story could have been so much better if this girl was not so annoying not to mention the lack of sex. I have read many different authors but this one was too PG


    What was most disappointing about S. C. Stephens’s story?

    Lack of sex descriptions.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rebekkah Ross?

    Narrator is fine not her fault the girl whined through the entire book


    What character would you cut from Reckless?

    Kierra is not strong enough to have such a hot guy.


    Any additional comments?

    They story could have been so much better if this girl was not so annoying not to mention the lack of sex

    "Ummm... Kinda Disappointed... But still loved it!!"

    Let me say this right now… I totally love Kellan and Kiera. I totally love the Thoughtless series.. and I have being waiting like forever for Effortless to come out so maybe my expectation were just a little bit too high.

    Now. Review time.

    This book picks up like right after book 2… like right after the bar wedding… in fact Kellan and Kiera are on their honeymoon. I must say, even the smex scenes in this book did not leave me gasping and covering my mouth like the other books did. I was soooo waiting for that too. The story was good… I mean it was just what you would expect for Kellan and Kiera’s relationship to evolve into. Plus I was so proud of Kiera for handling KelSex the way she did. So mature from Kiera’s previous personality. Great improvement, but I kind of wish old Kiera would have made an appearance and slapped Sextan around the bar one good time…. But she didn’t. The whole book I was waiting for that pinch in the heartstring feeling and it just didn’t come. So for me… I totally love the story…but it was like one huge epilogue for the first two books. It kind of just finalizes everything. Well I take that back… only one drama filled scene happen right at the end…but it was over and done then everything summed up nicely. If you’re a fan of this series by all means… get this book and listen and enjoy. Just don’t expect your toes to curl like it did with book 1 and 2, this will just round out the series for you.

    Narration was great as usual.

    Good buy if you’re a fan/ good credit if you’re just getting started.

    "The best book I have ever read/listened to."

    It was amazing to finally have a book not be about a whiney girl who gets consumed by a dominating man and then break up with him, leave or "run". It was believable, not far fetched. it was an amazing story. I have read so many books that I thought were great. pretty much every romance noval out ther, but I couldn't stop with this book I had to keep reading/listening but at the same time, never wanted it to be over. The author is a great writer. Proving the book does not have to be all about sex to pull you in, all about breaking up to keep you reading or all about a meek girl that a man has to save, to make the reader swoon. They stuck beside each other through it all. I have to Google the author to find more books and I am so sad Kellan and Kiara story is over. ...one last thought...Griffen and Anna- another perfect pair!

    "Love this series!"

    I love the third book the best out of all three books. This one is my favorite. I always find myself rereading these over and over.. Well, listening to them anyway. There's something about the narrators voice I like.. She's very calm & not annoying like some other narrators I've listened to (fifty shades narrator is annoying the way she reads the story.. Makes Ana sound whiny & valley-girlish..).. I love this series! All three books are very long.. I feel like every time I listen to them, I catch things I didn't remember before. I've recommended this series to a lot of my friends & they all love it as well. Definitely a very good read. I like how it's more realistic. I know a lot of people like to live in a world of fantasy.. But this book has a way of doing that but with realistic situations.

    "This one made it all worth it"

    I loved this book. Kierra redeemed herself and Keelan got even more perfect if that was even possible. I really had a hard time with book one. Kierra was frustrating and by the time I read books 2&3 I loved her. Let's not forget Denny. I liked how they all grew and found friendship together. Loved this series overall.

    "Gave me the peace and closure I needed...."
    Would you listen to Reckless again? Why?

    Probably...because I love the characters that much.


    What other book might you compare Reckless to and why?

    Hate comparing...I can't do it. If you love contemporary angsty romances, then this is one of the best.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There's a certain scene in the hospital - I don't want to give too much away...but it's amazing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Kellan moves me....every time.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved getting the conclusion to Kellan and Kiera's story. I had a few issues with things that happened, but overall it was a great way to end the series.

    "Satisfying Closure"

    The 3rd book in the Thoughtless Series is the best.



    The 1st book was really hard to review. I disliked the heroine but nevertheless, it was so well written, that i could not put down the book. There were times when i just wanted to smack Kiera, she was so immature and also cruel.



    The 2nd book was also an emotional rollercoaster, but all 3 kiera, kellan and danny had developed and grown up. The ending was already making me happy.



    Now the 3rd book is a very round closure for the series.



    I am looking forward to the next book of mrs. stephens.

    "Gripped by the series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Reckless to be better than the print version?

    I equally enjoyed both formats. Print came first and audiobook next.


    What other book might you compare Reckless to, and why?

    The real series by Katy Evans.


    Have you listened to any of Rebekkah Ross’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Kiera is finally found out. You know it's coming, you don't really respect her actions, but still feel sorry for her.

    "Disappointing...."

    Having been hooked on the first two books, so much so that I got through them both in a matter of days I was really disappointed in the ending to this trilogy.



    The passion and suspense of the first two books was sadly lacking in this book and really it was all a bit too happily ever after throughout the whole book.



    In a way I wish the author had ended the story at the end of the second book. Whilst Keira was definately more likeable in this book I thought Kellan had lost some of his edge and was a bit blahh.



    In summary it was a big disappointment and whilst I can definately see myself going back to the first and second book again and again I think Reckless is a one time only read for me. :(

    "Book 3 - what a finish - need to read again"

    So this is the final chapter for the Thoughless trilogy. Kiera has finished her studies and joins Kellan and the band in LA where they are being promoted by a record company. During this time she decides to become a writer and part growing up/part therapy she writes about the love triangle with complete honesty.



    All is good between Kellan and Kiera, their openess and willingness to discuss problems and issues has paid off with a closeness that could only be glimpsed at the end of book 1.



    Enter failing actress who uses and undermines Kellan and Kiera's relationship for her own ends. This situation is supported and managed by the record company who are only interested in profits and don't give a damn about K&K's relationship. Lets just say that Kellan reaches a point where he has had enough and exposes what has been happening with explosive results. The repercussions from this are almost fatal but I will say no more.



    The final chapters of the book are superbly balanced without being over the top. My favorite bit is Kellan's feelings and response to Kiera's whisper before he stepped onto the stage, read it for yourself.



    The Kindle version superb, the lady reading this is still totally wrong!.
