Review: Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens

Rating: ★★★★ stars
Date published: Novemeber 6th, 2012
Publisher: Gallery Books
Synopsis: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author S.C. Stephens comes the new adult series everyone is talking about.

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 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 I Thought:

I read this book a long time after I first heard about it.  All I was hearing was people I followed on Facebook and Twitter say again and again, "I love this book!"  and squealing about the second book which was coming out soon.  I finally took the plunge and read this book in 2012.  I was surprised by my reaction.

I hope I'm not spoiling the book for anyone, but I really dislike cheating.  I hate it when it happens in real life and I really don't like reading about it.  I usually get this dull pain in my chest, but anyways, I didn't think I was going to be able to finish this book let alone like it because of certain events.

I ended up glued to the book and read all 500 some pages in a handful of hours.  Keira I didn't like so much for not being able to make up her mind, but Kellan I fell in love with.  There weren't (m)any doubts about how I felt about him.Yes I thought he was a shit for what happened with Keira, but I was really hoping he'd dump her and date me instead.  Yeah, I know, only in my dreams.

S.C. Stephens totally blew me away with this book.  It's one of the iconic New Adult titles and a must read for any New Adult reader or fan.  I haven't seen any new books by her lately, but this book is now part of a trilogy.  I'm hoping she'll publish something new soon.

About the Author
S.C. Stephens is a bestselling author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.

Her first attempt at a full-length novel was Thoughtless. She wrote the angst-filled love triangle in early 2009 and published it that summer on FictionPress. Amazed and surprised by the response, more stories were quick to follow. 

Conversion, the first novel in a three story vampire series, was released in the fall. Collision Course, a tragic, yet hopeful tale of love and loss was released in early 2010. The second Conversion novel came out next, along with It’s All Relative, a different take on a one night stand story.

In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys reading other people’s fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer’s block reducing music, heading out to the movie theaters, and spending quality time with her children.
