excerpt

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.

“What if I don’t choose you, Kellan? What will you do?” – Kiera

He looked away, a tear rolling down his cheek.

“I’ll leave, Kiera. I’ll leave, and you and Denny can have your happily ever after.” – Kellan Kyle

He looked back at me.

“You wouldn’t even need to tell him about me. Eventually, the two of you…”

his voice broke and another tear fell on his cheek,

“the two of you would get married, and have children, and have a great life.” – Kellan Kyle

I fought back a sob.

“And you? What happens to you in that scenario?” – Kiera

“I…get by. And I miss you, every day,” he whispered.”  – Kellan Kyle

“I thought you might want a ride.”

He practically purred the words.”

Kellan’s voice was lower, the words more intense, and he locked eyes with me.

“I know there’s something here…. I know you want more. Tell me… and it’s yours.”

review

When I read Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens, I immediately added it to my Favorites Collection. It was by far the best book I have read!

Part of the reason why is because  I fell in love with ANOTHER “fictional character” Kellan Kyle. Okay, Okay, a lot of the reason…

So basically I just admitted to me adding him to my favorite book boyfriends list. Yes, I have one of those………..Who doesn’t?

Kellan Kyle is everyone’s fantasy all wrapped up in one man. He is super lean, he is a singer in a band, he has sandy blonde bedroom hair… that is gorgeous B.T.W…. He has the most amazing blue eyes, and did I mention he is a sweetheart? Now, come one ladiez….He does have some issues, but then again who doesn’t?

If you haven’t read the book  yes that what are you waiting for???

Go buy Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens, read it, and then we’ll chat about Kellan…and the book.

Now enough said about just Kellan Kyle…

Thoughless by S.C. Stephens is a book that will keep you going and going until you can’t get enough of it. I literally read this book of 364 pages long in two nights because I just couldn’t stop!

The story and the characters are captivating, and the writing is exceptional. It’s a story of love, friendship, betrayal, hope, and forgiveness.

Denny and Kiera have been a happy couple for close to two years. When he lands his dream job far from Kiera’s home she has no hesitation in going with him even though her parents are not at all happy about it. She’ll still be continuing her education, but not where her parents want her to go. She will finish it where they are going.   No matter what…Denny and Kiera are IN LOVE. Denny B.T.W.  is Australian…Mmhmm…gotta love a man with an accent, and so he doesn’t really have any close ties other than to Kiera. He is originally from Australia so his whole family is still there. So when they move states away, luckily Denny has an old close friend, Kellan Kyle. He lets them stay in his spare bedroom until they get on there own two feet.

Let’s talk about Kellan again just for a minute. He’s impossibly good-looking, has a perfect body, and he’s the lead singer of a band. So yeah what an impossibly nice combination. right?  Oh…and he’s a real sweetheart too. He does have some deep-seated issues as a result of a horrible childhood. What he does to get beyond those horrors is sad, but not all that surprising. Now a days its really common that what happened to Kellan, happens to a lot of kids. It is an emotional story, you will just fall in love with this book.

Everybody gets along well…things are going great, Denny and Kiera finally get settled in to there new place that now is ther home.  Then…Denny’s job takes him off to Arizona, leaving Kiera behind because she has to finish school.  Once Denny leaves, Kiera gets all lonely and doesn’t leave the house or do anything but mope around all day. That is until Kellan invited Kiera with him to go see him play in his band.  Naturally they grow close, but they manage not to cross that line between just being friends. Kellan is Denny’s best bud, so he doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. Kiera doesn’t want to lose Denny neither. But then he is gone longer that anticipated, and Kiera just can’t take being so lonely. She starts hanging out with Kellan a lot more and eventually they get attached to one another.

Then one night…after a phone call from Denny…everything changes. From here on out it was an emotional roller coaster ride as Kiera struggles with being in love with two men. I will be honest and tell you that although I liked Denny…it was Kellan that had my heart.

I loved and hated Kiera…sometimes simultaneously. She does an awful lot of growing in Thoughtless, and so by the end I loved and ached for her… She had to eventually choose between both Denny and Kellan, and she just couldn’t make the decision.

Towards the ending, Kellan, Kiera, and Denny all had to suffer the consequences of a fallout.

This book has no hurried happily ever after, but the ending is great and it is a ending that it really needed.

This novel is romantic and very hot. It is recommended for New Adult 18 +.

So, please go read this book before you start your next novel on your list because, you will not be disappointed one bit. It is a very emotional roller coaster ride but it is really worth it! … ❤
