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?

    FULL SPOILER FREE REVIEW IS UP NOW And first off I am officially casting this guy as Kellan Kyle 6 HUGE STARS WOW I can’t breathe Can’t think Reckless just blew me away It was BRILLIANT An utterly delicious addictive angst filled heart felt EPIC rockstar romance I swooned I laughed cried tears of happiness and tears of angst my heart raced was tied up in knots and at times just stopped entirely I truly can’t say enough good about itI could NOT put this book down I read it in one sitting staying up through the night until I finished around 7AM I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough It was completely engaging I felt like I didn’t even want to blink Literally my world ceased to exist for the duration of the readJust as with the first two books SC Stephens’ smooth flowing utterly addictive writing style reaches right into your heart and wraps you up in the story I was 150% invested in EVERYTHING that happened Every single part of my heart was completely involved in the story I was there Right THERE From the first page till the last and even now I can’t let go yet I’m still “there”Given the happy ending of Effortless this book starts off with a blissfully peaceful almost dreamy feel to it After all the roller coaster they’d been through it was so wonderful to see Kellan and Kiera have a moment to enjoy the happiness they so well deservedBut the life of a Rockstar is neither smooth nor private and the road ahead of them was rocky and bumpy as the band skyrocketed to fame and got sucked into the scrutiny of the spotlight and the uglier side of the industry “Making an album going on tour am I making a mistake? All I want is a quiet life with you” he continued “What I just signed up for isn’t exactly a quiet life” Wondering how to comfort him – when I often thought the same thing – I reached up “Kellan your life will never be quiet no matter what you do” I placed a hand on his chest and looked him square in the eye “You belong on a stage Its what you were born to do” I have to say that I’ve always understood where Kiera was coming from in book 1 even though I found it frustrating I felt that she grew as a person in book 2 but it was in this book where I really felt her maturity hit home Some of her decisions and actions were just SO self less that I honestly found myself even thinking at time that if I was in her shoes I probably wouldn’t have been able to be as self less and understanding as she wasKellan well Kellan Kyle was just perfect Sex on a Stick God’s Gift to Women and also just one of those most lovable and swooniest guys you’ll ever read about whose back story and desire to be loved just made my heart ache for him He is easily one of the best book heroes EVER written As a couple they still had their issues but they had gotten SO much stronger They had been tested they had made their mistakes and they had learned their lessons But now their new found strength was put to the very ultimate test as the pressures of fame and stardom came at them from every side They had a lot working against them but love conquers all right?I have to say though that for me the ANGST in this book topped both Thoughtless Effortless No Freaking Joke There was this one particular issue that spanned from about 29 37% that just made my heart sink drop stop seriously I could BARELY handle it Holy freaking fuck It made me cry tears of angst No book has EVER made me cry tears of angst before I’ve cried tears of sadness heartbreak betrayal and but crying just ‘cuz the angst was so strong that I could barely handle it was definitely a firstBut to offset the heart wrenching angst the romance was also back in full swoony force On than one occasion Kellan’s words and actions made my heart clench and just brought tears to my eyes The depth of his love for Kiera just rolls right off the page You feel it so strongly And you know Kiera felt the same wayNever once did I doubt their commitment to each other – no matter what they were put through “I love you too Kiera Just you You’re my always” This book really makes you consider the price of fame At what point do you say no? Where does the line get drawn? There were so many time where truly I was just ready to say fuck fame – it just wasn’t worth this all The plot honestly pushed me to the very edge of my comfort limits and even a bit beyond But I loved that they didn’t make the same mistakes twice Lessons were learned And that’s life right?I really have to commend Kiera on her whole attitude towards Kellan’s fame though Seriously she couldn’t possibly have been supportive understanding And my heart went right out to Kellan for trying with all of his heart to keep his girl’s heart safe while still following his dreams “I will always love you Kellan Your heart is safe with me” Kellan pulled me into a hug and let out a long shaky breath as he held me “Promise?” he whisperedI squeezed him just a little bit tighter “I promise” To soothe your worried hearts I’ll say that I honestly never once actually worried for their relationship It was what they had to go through that gutted me This book is not about cheating or separation Keira and Kellan spend the majority of it physically together in fact What this book is about is testing the strength of their bond and the struggles of maintaining a relationship while under the spotlight “Never again I don’t care what’s at stake I don’t care who I have to let down I won’t ever do that to you again You or me I’m done playing their game” I loved that this book took the time to also focus on the other relationships Anna and Griffin get their fair share of page time as do the other band mates but my favorite side story line was the one between Kellan and Denny I don’t want to say anything specific about it ‘cuz those interactions are ones you should experience for yourself but twice they brought me to tears I was SO impressed and happy with where SC Stephens took their story Seriously touched my heart right to the very coreShe also took the story to places I never thought she would I mean she took Kellan Kyle and she gah ok – lips are sealed But seriously around 80% I just had this huge “Holy shit That did NOT just happen” moment Still – like I said I loved every minute of it even the moments that made my heart stopBut I did read the final 15% with my heart just filled to bursting with happiness and I this huge perpetual smile on my face with happy tears in my eyes “I love you I would do it all over again if I needed to I’d go back to the beginning for you” By the end I felt elated I was emotional but my heart was completely satisfied and I can assure you that the ending is just PERFECTAnd I officially have the world’s biggest book hang over EVERThere are so many INCREDIBLE moment lines and scenes from this book that will be forever imprinted on my mind I was thinking about mentioning some here but instead I’m going to just encourage you all to go read this amazing story and discover them for yourself I’ve been re reading a few of them while putting this review together and now have tears in my eyes Seriously LOVE LOVE LOVE this book this journey these characters this story raises the bar and is one that will stay in my heart foreverI don’t pull out the 6 star rating very often but this whole series truly deserves it Any story that can take over my life so completely and make me fall in love with the characters so strongly needs that extra star Above and beyond That’s where this book went♥These 2 banners are from SC Stephen's facebook wallHow I see Kellan and KeiraGod I really love this series ♥♥For of my reviews come visit my book blog at come join my FB group at
