Thoughtless 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Thoughtless (Thoughtless, #1)
3 of 5 stars false

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 am trying to take deep breathes before reviewing this novel, trying to calm my nerves, but I believe I am going to fail.
I am going to have a very hard time reviewing Thoughtless
Apparently I have found a story which has breached my limits; I am usually pretty laid back and find it easy to enjoy everything, not so much with this book. The themes that have upset me and I have found is my hard limit is cheating.
Everything in my body was screaming when reading this, I was anxious and pissed the hell off, I even felt physically sick.
(This is where my rant begins, so , so sorry.)
I apparently put myself in Keira’s shoes and even though I would never cheat, never! I was feeling I guess how I would feel if I was Keira. I do not believe she felt the same multitude of emotions I myself felt. I mean she said she did, but if she really did, HOW THE FRICK COULD SHE DO THAT TO DENNY!!!????!!!. I mean this girl was just a whiny little tramp! She acted like an only child that had never been told no, she wanted her cake and wanted to eat it too and it just made me hate her. And she had the gall to look down her nose at Griffen, gahhhh.
Sorry, so sorry, but Keira really annoyed me, her character was just an awful person, she had absolutely no redeemable characters. I stuck with this book for Denny and only for Denny.  
So I am sorry to all those who loved this book but Keira really did kill it for me.
Then there was Kellen, who I admit I liked marginally better than Keira, but I have to say "HE DID IT TOO!!".  Denny was supposed to be his mate, his brother, somebody who he truly loved. Grow some balls dude! Tell him how you feel about his Mrs. Do not, I repeat, do not skulk around behind his back.
Arrrggghhhh! I am so tense; I need to go heat up my wheat pack for my shoulders! That is what this book had done to me. Because of that I do not know if I can say that I actually enjoyed this book. I finished it, I feel completely and utterly drained, very, very tired. Should I have waited to review this? Possibly. I may have found more perspective doing this when I felt calmer; I may have remembered things I enjoyed. Even the ending did not make it up for me. I didn't cry, probably because I didn't care how hurt Kiera felt, I felt worse for Denny.
I guess I felt a little satisfaction over the fact that these two didn't fall into each others arms and that they seemed to have trust issues now. I fricken wonder why??? IDIOTS!!
At least that seemed realistic.
So onto my rating. I cannot give this a great rating, it was well written, well paced and based on something that I am sure has happened many times over. Other people have loved this story, so it must just be a personal thing on my part.However, I can't seem to be able to give it a terrible one. I read it all, it was an engaging story and it sure fired me up. So three stars from me, simple. Sorry for the big rant :)
