Can love survive when life gets Reckless? 

When the band hits it big, Kiera and Kellan must ask themselves: Can their love for each other survive the constant pressures of superstardom? The friendships they've formed, the new family they've found, and the history they've forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band's exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together. Fame comes with a price-but will it cost Kiera and Kellan everything?


I am floored by the beauty of this book. I've been dying to read this final book to see what's going to be the conclusion on Kellan and Kiera's love story. I'm not disappointed by how  it turned out as I read its remaining pages. In fact I'm glad for the turn of events although I might have thought a different end when I was reading the first hundred pages, but what happened in the epilogue suits it better. I can't describe exactly how much I like it when the characters grow throughout the trilogy. They have flaws but it makes them more realistic, showing their weaknesses and strengths without false pretenses. On this book they sound more mature and funny at the same time which is a good thing too. I couldn't love the D-Bags and other characters more. 

Reckless made me laugh (then when I looked up I found my sister giving me a what's-wrong-with-her face), swoon (actually there's no more explanation needed here just two words: Kellan Kyle) and be annoyed which states that I am utterly absorbed while reading this book. I wouldn't say that I couldn't put it down because honestly, I started to warm up with the story around 25% - 30% part of it, but that doesn't mean you have to skip reading it. I may be confused and at loss at first of what's going to happen in the story but I certainly didn't regret finishing it. The book can be quite long but every flip of page is worth it. 

Reckless is a book of forgiveness, friendship, passion, trust and true love that will definitely leave a mark on its readers. A stunning conclusion on S.C. Stephens' masterpiece, Thoughtless Trilogy. I say don't miss reading it! Thumbs up!

Author Bio
S.C. Stephens is an independent author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance. 
Her first attempt at a full-length novel was Thoughtless. She wrote the angst-filled love triangle in early 2009 and published it that summer on FictionPress. Amazed and surprised by the response, more stories were quick to follow. 

Conversion, the first novel in a three story vampire series, was released in the fall. Collision Course, a tragic, yet hopeful tale of love and loss was released in early 2010. The second Conversion novel came out next, along with It’s All Relative, a different take on a one night stand story. 

In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys reading other people’s fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer’s block reducing music, heading out to the movie theaters, and spending quality time with her children.
