Thoughtless (Thoughtless #1)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.
Just as great the second time round! I first read this book a couple of years ago when it was new and only available as an eBook, now I am so happy to see that it got published in book form now and even more so that it is now part of a series.
Any cheating in a read usually turns me straight off, but the brilliance in this book comes from the way you feel for Kiera. She felt so alone and in a way abandoned by Denny and Kellan was there when she needed someone the most. Even though she cheated on Denny and betrayed him, you feel for the situation she is in, yet despise her for not just sticking to the one relationship she wanted, instead stringing both Denny and Kellan along because she didn’t want to make a decision.
I loved Kellan, though he did so much wrong and hurt Denny and Kiera, you felt the pain of all that he had been through in the past and how much light Kiera bought into his life, how much he needed her. I was happy that when Denny made the decision that needed to be made for Kiera that Kellan didn’t automatically jump to her rescue and be with her, he took time away, he cleared his head.
This was such an addictive book, once you start you cannot put it down and you have to keep reading to see where everything ends up, how this train wreck of emotions and betrayal ends up. I cannot wait to read the next in the series; I am on the edge of my seat to see what happens next.
