OMG I finally finished this masterpiece. Can you believe it? We waited so long for this book and it ended so fast. I even set a limit of pages to read every day but it still wasn't enough. I am addicted to Kellan and Kiera they are the best written couple of all times. I think everyone can agree with me when I say that…
Reckless is a special book everyone can relate too. It brings every important subject or theme in one place. Either if it is Rejection. Failed love. Jealousy. The difficulty of chasing your dreams. Every single thing anyone can think off this book has it. And it gives it the much needed importance to make a remarkable story.
“You belong on a stage. It’s what you were born to do.”
Kellan finally gets a big shot in the business life. He is gaining even more fans and the world is starting to get a sample of the D-Bags. And who wouldn’t love them? I do. And it shows that from day to night they become a big hit. But with that we see the problems it will bring them. And the book spins around that main concept. We will have to see the struggle Kellan and Kiera make to overcome some of the problems stardom will bring them and overlook a very cocky pop princess ready to make a move.
All of the people we know and love from the other books are in here. Of course. But they are more developed. With more substance to their characters. More real. Grownups now. It’s like the author outdid herself looking for the right moments for each character to shine.
"And I swear, only my statuesque sister could pull off pairing a pregnant belly with polka dots."
But the biggest change of all was Griffin. Remember the player? The idiot? The sonovabitch? Yap. We will still get to see Griffin in all his glory but in a more caring and responsible way. This book matured him so much. He still makes his inappropriate jokes and suggestive moves in front of everyone’s parents. But he does that while showing that he cares. That now that he has a name to look out for and a baby on the way he needs to make something out of himself. It’s endearing and charming to witness it.
"I sighed, not sure if Kellan could argue that point or not—not since Griffin had impregnated my sister. He really was family now. Lord help me."
"Did I just get schooled by Griffin? That had to be one of the signs of the apocalypse."
Denny is also a constant presence in here. But that’s great because he is the least crazy one of them all. He brings the realness into the story, the crudeness and the heartfelt. He grew so much as well. But the previous book already stated that but still you could notice it. Also he still loves Kiera, like a friend and former lover. He loves her but he’s not “in love with her”. It makes sense once you finish reading this mind candy.
"Denny Harris, the ex–love of my life."
"Why was he so nice to me? I’d done horrible, horrible things to him. I was a horrible, horrible person."
Matt, Evan and the girls are still the same background characters that are always missed if they are not there and make a huge improvement in the whole book. They don’t do much but are never overlooked or outshined. It’s impossible because the way they stand up to protect their characters is outstanding. S.C. Stephens is a genius in creating secondary character that warm our hearts sometimes even more that the main characters. It’s brilliant.
Kellan and Kiera are the best couple in literacy. I don’t care about some second grade couples with nothing to add of real in their life. This is the real deal. It you want to cry you have to read their vows to each other every day as if it was the last. If you want to smile just be aware of Kellan’s mouth because you know he’s got something planned. If you want intrigue and jealousy you just look for the sneaky character that it’s going to try to sneak in between them. But it never works, does it? If you want all that than Reckless is perfect. The relationship we've seen grow along these three book is exceptional and sentimental. Not too much and not too less. Just perfect.
“I love you too, Kiera. Just you. You’re my always.”
I had way too many quotes to put here...
