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?
Spoiler alert: If you haven't read Thoughtless and Effortless, do not read this review!

Wow, just wow. Reading the last book in a series is always a sad thing, and I was so sad to leave these characters behind. I looked forward to reading each book even more then the last, and each one was more enjoyable then the previous one. S.C. Stephens could not have ended the story any more perfectly then she did. The Thoughtless series is one of my favorite New Adult series out there.

In Reckless, the D-Bags have completely made it. They are touring around the country, they have millions of fans, and one of the worlds greatest pop stars has her eye on Kellan. At the same time, Kellan and Kiera are calling each other husband and wife, and Kiera's mom is busy planning the official wedding for them. If that wasn't enough, Kellan is getting to know his biological father and half siblings and Anna is pregnant with Griffin's baby.

I could not get enough of Kellan and the D-Bags. They have such an amazing family bond, and I love them together. Kiera and Kellan are also wonderful and sweet together. Despite getting together under lies, they really are in love and it is beautiful.

I think my favorite aspect of the entire series is watching Kellan grow from a whore who has never known love and family, and could not comprehend that anyone could ever love and care about him, to a man who realizes he is worthy of love, and finally has a family. It was pure and raw emotion watching Kellan realize this, and his story broke my heart every single time.
This series started out with a few problems for me (noticeably way too many details in the writing) but I ended up loving every minute of this series. These books are not to be missed.
