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 withstand 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?

Reckless, hmmm... where do I begin? Sometimes, it's so hard to express love. Love, is a strong word and I choose it wisely. I can honestly say without a doubt I LOVE THIS SERIES! I enjoyed the ride, the ups and downs of Kiera and Kellan. The way their relationship was portrayed over the three books in the series was fantastic. I am so glad I decided to take a chance with this series, having only been my second read Contemporary Romance/New Adult, I can honestly say I'm a fan of this genre so much now, and I owe all the credit to this series!!

Kiera and Kellan are "together, together" in this book. They are finally spending all their time together as a couple. Sure, Kiera graduated college,  and Kellan is on the road to having a successful career as the frontman of The D-Bags rockband. But, in this book, they are spending all their time as a couple on the road and exploring what life is like as a couple with the craziness of traveling and putting on concerts. Keira decides she wants to write, while on the road. She wants to write about everything that happened since meeting Kellan. So basically it's like she is writing the three books in this series.

As D-Bags start to hit it big, with new ventures, and success, this book hits it home as a turning point for this couple. Can they survive being together with all the craziness that comes with this success? D-Bags finally seem to hit it big, but of course with being any kind of star comes pitfalls, that come in the form of record exes., fans, paparazzi, CrAzY fans, and oh yea, a highly successful, sexy,  star, Sierra, who craves the limelight everywhere she goes, and will do anything to keep her star shining.
This puts a niche in their relationship, and tests them daily.

I loved the direction SC Stephens took these characters on. I was a little worried that I wasn't going to care so much about reading about being on the road, and touring on a bus. But, SC puts such a realness to her story. I literally felt like I was reading an autobiography, and I enjoyed every minute!

Yes, there were some slower parts to this book, but the highlight for me was how Kiera transformed and became more confident, with their relationship. I loved how she put Kellan first, in so many situations. She was strong, stronger than I may have been, given some of the circumstances she had to face. Some of these circumstances were, crazed fans, hiding their relationship, watching Kellan make a sultry, HOT, music video, and swallowing down rumors that were spinning out of control in the tabloids. Linking not her and Kellan together, but Kellan and the highly successful star, Sierra together. What a monkey wrench! Throw that in the mix of their relationship, and I thought they were doomed!!  Kellan was even sexier, and even more romantic to Kiera. Trying to protect her, and making her #1 was always front and center to Kellan. I loved him even more, and loved the way he put her on the pedestal. She was his everything!

The ending felt so complete and magical to me. To see the journey coming to and end, and seeing what becomes of these two, and how Miss Stephens incorporated the secondary characters was perfect. I loved seeing Anna, Kiera's sister, become a mommy, and watching her relationship with Griffin, change. I loved how Denny, Kiera's ex, and Kellan's BFF, was brought back into the mix and was a  great friend to both! I loved seeing Kellan always trying to protect Kiera , even with his own life!!! O.K., I just loved everything about it! I would recommend you reading the whole series. Some people, myself included had a hard time with the first book, Thoughtless, but if you can get past that one, then your in for a fantastic story about love. True love, and every step of the wonderful journey, of Kellan Kyle and Keira Allen.

I loved that we could be together, but could be doing our own thing too. We each had our own lives, our own joys, our own friends. We weren't dependent on each other for happiness, but being together sure amplified the feeling.
