Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens
Reckless- did not read
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 that 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.
Warning: Contains spoilers and written by a lovesick fangirl
Meet Kellan Kyle! OMG! My heart stopped just by saying his name. I hated Kiera so much, I wouldn’t have finished it if not for Kellan. I love rockstars, fiction or not. There’s that dark, deep, mysterious and bad-boy air to them that complements the soulful music perfectly. So, it didn’t take much for me to swoon over Kellan, the rockstar-god with beautiful face, blue eyes, velvety voice and dark past. He had me at first song. But he’s a man-whore, you say? I’m a FAN through and through. See if I care. OK. Enough with my Kellan. KELLAN. Kellllaaannnn… Damn.
It’s a story about cheating but that’s not why I don’t like this book. Kiera and Denny were perfect together until they moved to Kellan’s apartment and everything fell apart. This is not my first story about cheating, so it’s not something new and unexpected. But, this one bothered me in so many ways. The heroine is a flat-out cheater. Kiera didn’t even try to make things right and kept on justifying the cheating part as friendly notions only. Until it got more than friendly- having coffee together while Denny’s asleep, Kellan walking her to school, sneaking out of bed soon as Denny’s asleep to go to Kellan’s BED. But of course, this is Kiera were talking about, so she found another shitty reason to continue cheating. She didn’t want to hurt Denny. WHAT AN EFFING LAME EXCUSE. This is pretty much what happened next:
Kellan: It hurts me to see you with another man, choose who you wanna be with
Kiera: Uhm, you. BUT give me time, I don’t want to hurt Denny.
**insert more cheating moments
Kellan: So what now? The book is almost over, you still haven’t told Denny.
Kiera: Oh, sorry. I realized I’ll stick with Denny after all.
***Kiera and Kellan kissed goodbye, Denny saw!
Denny: You cheated on me. Bye, Kiera
Kellan: You chose Denny. Bye, Kiera
It should have ENDED right here!!! I would have loved this book even if brought me so much distress. To my dismay, the ending was…
Kiera: Sorry Kellan, you know I love you even if I chose Denny. We should be together.
Kellan: I forgive you, we should be together.
Hell noooooooo!!! FVCK! FVCK! FVCK! I screamed bloody murder because that doesn’t make sense. You don’t do something so awful and get away with it with no consequences. Is losing Denny the consequence? Seriously? They even ended up being friends, for crying out loud. I’m completely missing the point of this book if ever there is. By the end, I was so torn if I should read the succeeding sequels. I couldn’t get enough of Kellan… But my most hated heroine will be there too!!! I was still hoping to get something out of this godawful story. Maybe Kiera will redeem herself after all but boy, was I wrong. While the first book focused on betrayal and cheating, the second is about jealousy, doubts and misunderstanding. It was worse because there isn’t much Kellan and Kiera stayed unbearably immature and selfish. It’s not even worth discussing. I had so much hate for Kiera to last a lifetime, I had to forgo the last book. Sorry Kellan, I guess I don’t love you enough.
Best parts of the book:
- Kellan, Kellan, KELLAN, and KEllan!!!!
- Denny and Kellan leaving Kiera
