Every story has two sides, and in this new book, the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes.
All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar, and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson:You're worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal band mates, and fast women...until he meets her.
Kiera makes him ache for more. Makes him feel for the first time that he'sworth more. But there's one problem - she's his best friend's girl.
Just when Kellan thought his emotional defenses were rock solid, Kiera's indecisive heart wreaks havoc on his soul, changing him forever. Losing Kiera is not an option.
This is a very emotional story of two men and one woman. Full of angst and misunderstandings, we see Kiera, the heroine, caught up in a terrible tangle. On the one hand, she has dependable Denny who she loves and feels safe with and then there's Kellan. Kellan seemingly has the world at his feet. He's gorgeous, popular, talented and a definite hit with the ladies! I can't say he's a bad boy because he isn't, but his actions in this story are not pleasant. His passion and obsession for Kiera sees him betraying his friend over and over again and yet it’s not the usual love triangle but a gut wrenching portrayal of how easy it is to make bad decisions. Imagine finding your soul mate at the worst possible moment. Kiera is not likable and her bed hopping causes so much pain. I don't blame her for falling for Kellan but her obvious indecisive behaviour hurts all three of them eventually.
So if you enjoy complicated love stories then Thoughtful is for you. Is there a happy ending? Perhaps but it's not an easy one that's cut and dried. I'm not a fan of stories that reward unfaithful behaviour but I think the hardest thing for these characters to learn will be trust. I didn't like the ending, if honest, but I can't deny it was a passionate and heartbreaking tale. A must read for fans of the series without a doubt.
