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.

♥Kierra- First of all what an AWESOME name, right?? It kind of reminds me of Simba daughter from the Lion King 2. Someone give this girl a cookie cake with a yellow smiley face on it and and butt load of icing drawn around the edges. SHE DESERVES IT! Alone and in a new place whole starting school she still kept her head up and stayed strkng. (Even stayed strkng under all the hotness that is Kellan)
See below for my swoon description of him.
♥Kellan- Equally awesome name. He and I have what you call a love and despise relationship. (I say despise because I feel it is much, much stronger than simple hate.) I WANTED to hate him but goodness he was just so incredibly sexy when he was so cold and distant toward Kierra.
So Kierra and her boyfriend, Denny, travel across the US just so he can get his dream internship. Things are going great. They will be staying in a house with another roommate, Kellan. And mm. Hm this roomie, just so happens to be..
IN. A. FREAKING. BAND.
Things are going all good and stuff until Kierra’s boyfriend up and leaves her.
HE. LEAVES. HER.
Mind you, she had never been on her own and she just gave up EVERYTHING to be with this guy.
What the whattt??
So naturally, Kierra and Kellan get together, and when I say get together, I mean they do THE NASTY. Like…… And then they convince themselves that it is somehow OKAY and then try to forget about it. They say they won’t let it happen again until… IT DOES. PFFT.
There were moments I did want to punt kick Kierra in her esophagus. Because there were many moments in which she was just straight up immature, naive, and just freaking…..clueless.
So these two catch feelings for each other and I liked how it progressed naturally.
Yo. This is where I seriously had a problem with these two. They agreed on being friends on the condition that they would just, and I quote, harmlessly flirt.
What the what, AGAIN???
They convinced themselves that if they touched and looked at each other in a certain way, it wouldn’t be bad because they weren’t “doing anything wrong.” I don’t care what you say. Flirting, looking, physical touching…
IT. IS. STILL.CHEATING.
If you want to FLIRT with someone KIERRA do it with your boyfriend. That felt so good to finally get off of my chest.
I really want to call her this word but I don’t curse so….I’ll say it in tiny letters. *cough* slut.
Thereeeeee we go.
You can’t just go from guy to guy and think everything will be all honkey dory. –>Not that I’m complaining about their hot moments because these two site know how to hear it up when they’re together.
The SWOON. The author sefinitky knows how to write a swoon scene. And Kellan defintly was swoony and mouth wateringly addictive. –>that being said, this is probably the only reason I continued reading.
They were all like:
Kellan: “I know you feel something for me.”
Kierra: “But I have a boyfriend, you see.”
Kellan: “Yeah, but we’re perfect together.”
Kierra: Considers it… “yeah, I suppose you’re right. Let’s hook up. Again.”
My response to all of this: ………………………………………………………………………….
Even though this book seemed to follow on FOREVA, I still would recommend it because it was a good time. The only thing I will warn you of rough is that there is a lot of drama, angst, depression, and *rolls eyes HIGH in the air* a BUTTLOAD of miscommunication, lies, betrayal, and deciet. So, of you decide to read this book, be farewarned my little bookies. Be warned.
Over to you:
How do YOU feel about cheating in books? Does it turn you off of it, or are you all like: “Yup, I’m for it.” What do you do about books that continue to lag on and on with no don’t end or plot? Would you think about reading this?
