3.0 out of 5 stars NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING, 6 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Reckless (Thoughtless Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
First of all I want to say that I loved the first two books in this series, and like many others I was really looking forward to this release.
The story picks up straight after Kellan and Kiera's declaration of marriage to one another. Kiera is going to go on tour with Kellan and the band.Travelling as Kellan's wife. Girlfriends are not allowed on the tour bus!

Now that Kellan and the boys have a record contract the future looks bright. Travelling to LA to stay in a house owned by the record company seems like one big adventure. At last Kellan and Kiera get to be together on a permanent basis. Kiera who wants to be a writer, is able to do that whilst still remaining at Kellan's side.

But of course there is trouble on the horizon, which comes in the form of Nick the record company executive, and Sienna another singer with the record company. They want Kellan and the boys to record a single with Sienna.

I started to read this with very high hopes. But my expectations of a great read to end this series were soon let down. I found the book to be overlong especially given the plot. I thought it was unbelievable that a record company would force a situation upon one of their artists, especially as he was in a commited relationship. Given Kellan and Kiera's past issues this seemed even more incredulous. The fact that Kiera encouraged Kellan and urged him to do it was a "Say What" moment for me. Her excuse that she didn't want to be in the limelight and attract attention from the press or public, was pathetic, and as a plot devise it was weak.

The further I got into the story the more repetitive it became. With the manipulative actions of Sienna, and Kellan and Kiera tolerating the situation just got boring. The book did have some good moments, especially towards the end. But for most of the story, I just didn't find it believable. This was not the Kellan and Kiera from the previous two books they seemed like watered down versions. The love scenes were pretty muted as well. To sum up this book was too long with most of the action towards the end.

Your review is spot on, i couldn't have put it better myself. I loved Kellan in the first two books but I felt the storyline was more about the touring that their relationship for most of the book and it suffered for it. Glad they got their happy ending but I think the story should have ended after book 2.

i loved the first two also but this one - well, it was sweet but too one level. the stuff with the other star (can't even recall her name) just wasn't enough to bring on the angst that i need in a good romance - its the ups and downs that make the drama and it was lacking here sadly. would have been better to just stop at book two.
