Book description (via Amazon):
For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender and endlessly devoted to her. 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. At first, he’s purely a friend that she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes…and none of them will ever be the same.
I was torn between giving this book an A- and a B+ only because I don’t really like the whole cheating/affair/infidelity theme. But DAMN IT, I shamelessly loved and enjoyed this book! S.C. Stephens did a wonderful job with character development, building up and breaking down certain relationships.
I was pulled in. I had no choice but to love the main men and start a love and hate relationship with the main character, Kiera. Sometimes I loved her and sometimes I loved to hate her, but, in some strange way, I could relate to her. She was torn between familiarity versus excitement. Denny was all she had ever known, she felt safe and secure; she gave up everything for him without really truly knowing herself; I know exactly how that feels. Kellan, on the other hand, showed her a world of possibilities outside of her comfort zone; he was a deep body of water that she was afraid to jump into even though she wanted to so badly.
I hated that she’d go back and forth between boys, but I could feel that she was so torn between the two. And when sh*t hit the fan, I could feel the heartbreak and pain in that love triangle. WHEW, talk about an emotional roller coaster!
