A new novel in the Thoughtless series from #1 New York Times bestselling author S. C. Stephens!
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's worth 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.
The first two books in S.C. Stephens’ Thoughtless series where the next books I read after 50 Shades of Grey and got back into ready. Luckily, the third book of her series came out that same summer and I was able to read all three books without living through the pain of waiting for books to tie-up loose ends and cliffhangers. Thoughtless was and still is one of the most beautifully heartbreaking books I have ever read. I had a BIG hangover, especially after reading the first book. I feel in love with Kellan Kyle like many other readers out there.
Thoughtless follows the journey of Kellan Kyle and Kiera. Kiera is the girlfriend of Denny, a man that is like a brother to Kellan. Denny and Kiera have moved to Seattle for Denny’s work and need a place to stay; Kellan has room and is more than thrilled to reconnect with Denny. One thing Kellan was not prepared for was Denny’s beautiful girlfriend. Denny suddenly has to leave to work out of state; Kiera still taking college classes is unable to go with him. With Denny gone, Kellan and Kiera begin to develop what begins as a friendly relationship but then changes course. When Kiera is drunk one night after believing that her and Denny have broken up, she finds comfort in Kellan. Once again the situation changes when Denny decides to come back to Seattle to try and save his relationship with Kiera but unfortunately, things have changed for Kiera. Kiera and Kellan must decided if they are willing to hurt a good man to see where their beginning relationship takes them or forget that anything every happened. Luckily, we the readers are able to follow along on this incredible journey.
I was beyond thrilled to read Stephens’ last book in the series, Thoughtful. This book is the first book (Thoughtless) but told by Kellan. Oh, my, fucking, god! It was just as good as reading the first book of the series for the first time. I literally couldn’t put it down; I was consumed by reading Kellan’s thoughts. I obviously already knew what was going to happen in the book but I was obsessed with it. S.C. created not only created the perfect book character in Kellan Kyle, she created a person that I cared about what he was thinking, and feeling, and doing. Once again, I found myself melancholy and poignant after reading it. It truly takes a talented author baring love, sweat, tears, and soul into her writing to create such a character that I as a reader feel like know as a human being. I for one, fell in love with Kellan Kyle all over again. S.C. Stephens outdid herself. Not only is Thoughtful a five star read; it is so much more that I can’t even begin to assign what I felt like during and after reading this book. Hands-down, Stephens nailed it.
