"This book is a captivating read that had me on chapter one. I was hooked on this emotional journey. I read the book in one sitting, I simply couldn't put it down, I had to know what happens next. THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU is a beautifully thought out, beautifully told and beautifully written second chance romance, a rom/com of it's finest. I give 4.5 stars and can't wait for We Belong Together." -- Goodreads reviewer

Gray has loved Knox since they were teenagers, however she was seeing his one of his best friends. I really enjoyed how Knox and Gray got back together (which is where I had a laugh) Gray doesn’t hesitate to step up and help Knox out. He feels terrible and needs to help her. It was a little heart breaking watching them try to figure out where they stood in the past and how they could make it a future.
Years later they bump into each other while that may have cause a huge problem for Knox and her fashion dreams. Gray was her huge help and got her back on track. She might feel like he's doing it again like when they kids but she doesn't know they extent of his feelings that he would do anything for her. I swear everyone needs a Gray someone to always help you, support, be a good shoulder to lean on. I don't get why Knox always pushes Gray away even when the feelings come out. It's frustrating to see Gray hurt with each rejection, it's true though Knox does have one foot out the door in a way. Waiting for her big break even if she has a good thing in Calamity. I don't blame her with the bullying and her past but I would be more honest about that. But she's too in her head at times too.
Tension between them is crazy waiting for it to finally light a match. When things just start to get better, Robert comes back into the picture making things difficult. Bringing back past worries and insecurities but also a big opportunity for Knox. Trusting him and all those confusing emotions with it made it difficult for her and Gray. It was a mess. Gray has always had issues with being not noticed so this hit a soft spot, Robert was always a contention between them. But that ending though way to go big for them both. I just wished it didn't have to come with all that drama with it. Gray is awesome and so dedicated, his love Knox shines bright she only needed to let it in and return it.
I wasn't too keen how this ended but it made sense after how it all started. Fashion industry can be cut throat. Gray did not fit the careless boyfriend title at all he was great. Bowie brothers are a tight knit group along with their SO's they welcomed Knox into the fray so easily. Interesting hint for Brodie's book up next.
I’ve been reflecting on this book for about a week and I’m still trying to figure out how the title works for this story because the “boyfriend” in question in my opinion is not careless at all; he is thoughtful, protective, and a good guy all the way around. Normally I zip through an Erika Kelly book, but I struggled a bit with The Careless Boyfriend.
After the car he was riding in rips through Knox Holliday’s house and destroys the couture wedding gowns she has made for her fashion week show, Gray Bowie is determined to make it up to the girl (now woman) who has held his heart since childhood.
Things I really loved about this book were how strong Knox was throughout even when things looked their bleakest she was working to figure out her next step. I appreciated how hard she had worked to achieve her dreams and she didn’t let her past or the bullies of her childhood get the best of her. I was amazed at how much Gray’s brothers had underestimated him leaving him to become very successful in his own right outside of extreme sports without them knowing. The fact Knox and Gray had this strange history between them that made it easy for their relationship to blossom quickly and made it easy to believe why Knox accepted Gray’s help. I also loved that Gray’s brothers finally saw him as the man he’d become pretty much on his own and without any help.
What bothered me about this story is how clueless Knox had been about Gray’s feelings for her back in high school and how she blamed him for their lack of keeping in touch when she made the choice to stay with her drug addicted boyfriend on prom night even after telling Gray she couldn’t deal with her boyfriend's behavior anymore and he pulled away to heal his own heart. Furthermore after everything Robert (ex-drug addicted boyfriend) put her through as a teen she placed her faith in him to help her organize a show during fashion week when he had absolutely no experience and I honestly couldn’t get past the fact that as business savvy as Gray was, he didn’t question Robert more, demand to talk to his mother or someone as his mother’s company or anything. This is where the story kind of fell apart for me because it added so much unnecessary angst and I found it unbelievable.
The Careless Boyfriend lacked the fun and sweetness of the first two books and there was quite a bit more angst, something I didn’t enjoy. While this isn’t my favorite book in the series, there was enough good in it to keep me reading and being back with the Bowie family is never a bad thing plus I am thoroughly intrigued as to what Ms. Kelly has in store for Finn, the last single Bowie man.
