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.

There is so much I want to say about this book! Firstly, it is a long book, so if you are going to pick it up, make some time for it. Secondly, it would not be a book for everyone. There are three main characters in this book Kiera, her boyfriend Denny and his friend Kellan. So from that you can see there is a bit of a triangle happening, and it goes into the world of cheating. But don’t write it off over that alone, because I thought it was more of a story of a naïve girl who happened to fall in love with two guys.
Kiera moved across the country with her boyfriend, Denny, as he accepted a new job there. They move in with Kellan, Denny’s friend who he stayed with for a year during school. When Denny’s work calls him away, Kiera was alone; she had no friends and nothing else to do except work and mope for the rest of her break. She slowly forms a friendship with Kellan and soon lines become a bit blurred. Kiera soon realises her heart is torn between the two guys.
Kiera was a quiet girl; she is book smart and finds interacting with people a little difficult. She has lived a normal, uncomplicated life and found the big move a little daunting. Kiera seemed a little inexperienced to me, and was way out of her comfort zone. She didn’t like graphic conversations between the guys and blushed over a lot of things. Along the way you could see her grow and become a little more comfortable. She found it hard to deal with her feelings and made some stupid choices, but she is human after all.
Denny… what can I say… he’s an Aussie, a sexy, sweet and caring one at that. He is focused on his career right now and is very good at his job. He loves Kiera with a fierce passion and their relationship was a bit strained when he had to leave her. I liked him a lot and I saw how much he would give up for the girl he loved.
Kellan is the sexy lead singer of the D-bags. I could tell that he had a difficult past, but I didn’t realise how deep his hurt ran. I could see he was quite the player, but he was very reserved in the beginning. There were a lot of good traits that he had too, he was kind, thoughtful and fun to be around. He went out of his way to drag Kiera out of her depressing state and showed her how to be happy when you feel a bit lost.
As you can see, this book gets a bit complicated. If you have the patience to sit through it, it really is a great read. It is a difficult journey for all of the characters as they have to sort through their feelings and the situations they find themselves in. I really did enjoy this read, and I will continue on with the series to see what happens for Kiera now.
