~ Synopsis ~

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.


I was BEYOND excited when S.C. Stephens announced she was writing Kellan’s POV – because our favorite rock-star isn’t your typical lothario musician- he has a heart, one he’s been holding on to for a very long time because deep down, he doesn’t believe he’s capable of being loved.

Kellan goes through woman like some people go through socks – and he’s not really an asshole about it either, that’s why I always kinda loved him. He was a player without the game – the man everyone wanted a piece of but never stopped to actually try and get to know the man. Want, Want, Want – but never truly taken.

When Kiera and Denny move to Seattle and in with Kellan the flirtation between Kiera and Kellan starts, just as her relationship with Denny is on the rocks. Reading everything from Kellan’s POV was heart breaking – reliving every moment they shared, and reading his feelings brought so much more to this story I already loved. I’m always a sucker for a males POV, but Kellan Kyle was by far one of the best I’ve ever read.

Coming from a less than stellar home life – after his parents pass away he has no one left. Kiera comes into his life and he’s hopeful that finally – FINALLY someone is going to love him – care for him – stick around. No more one night stands, no more empty sex. He wants the love, but he’s not sure he’s actually capable of it. How can you be when everyone in your life that was SUPPOSED to love you didn’t?

It’s heartbreaking to read – so many feelings went through me as I read through this story. Those of you that loved Kellen in Thoughtless will fall ALL over again in Thoughtful.

All the emotions I had through this gripping love triangle were amplified.

I can’t wait for Untamed – Griffin’s Story coming November 3rd!

*Favorite Quotes*

“She was comfort and pain, wrapped up in one beautiful package….that wasn’t mine.”


“I have a life without you. You’re not my entire world. You’re just the part I loved the most…”


“Only think about the raindrops. Only listen to the sound of the rain pelting the earth. Only feel the chill. Don’t think about her. Don’t think about her lips. Don’t think about her body. Her smile. Her laugh. Her eyes…. they way she looks at you. The way she looked at him. Fuck.”

“I’m in love with you. You gave yourself to me, then ran right back to him. You.Killed.Me.”
