Review: Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens

Title: Thoughtless
Author: S.C. Stephens
Date Published: 6/11/2010

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

My Rating:

My Review:
Wow, I absolutely loved everything about this book. I loved getting to know Kiera and following her on this journey, she was so easy to connect with as a reader and I really started to feel her emotions with her which is a HUGE testament to any author and S.C. Stephens in this case.

What do you do when you follow the man you think you are going to marry to a new place and then start to feel abandoned by him? Well, naturally you look for comfort and companionship elsewhere. Kiera's problem was taking that a little too far.

Do I agree with her actions? Well, no! Did I root for her and Kellan? Well, yea! 

The chemistry between Kellan and Kiera is undeniable and their ups and downs played out so very well in this story. I could not put it down! Then throwing Denny in the mix and Kellan and Kiera being *just friends* but using eachother for comfort. And then the confrontation and all of the emotions that stemmed from that, WOW, powerful stuff!

It just really was such a unique story, that I really enjoyed. Now on to Effortless!

This is a long book, but it reads very fast! Thoughtless was so compelling to me. I immediately fell in love with Kellan, but also had a soft spot for Denny. Kellan has some deep, dark issues that shape who he is as a person, but he is a complete sweetheart. Denny is also so sweet to Kiera. I could see why she would be attracted to both men. Even with Denny's turn of events, the force drawing Kiera and Kellan together would not have been stopped. At some point, something would have happened with them. Even though Kiera made some bad choices, I still really liked her and could relate to her in a lot of ways. I felt bad for her. She had a lot to learn and she really did grow from the experience. There are some gut wrenching moments, there is laughter, there is love, and lots of turmoil. The thing that makes this book and situation seem real is that no one ever wins in a love triangle. Everyone always gets hurt in some way and you truly see the effect on everyone in this book. Now, I'm a big fan of getting a happy ending and it takes a while to get there, but you will. I'm so glad this book was recommended to me. I loved it and haven't stopped thinking about it! The sequel to Thoughtless is called Effortless and is set to be released in eBook format soon. Please go read this book. The writing was impeccable.

I so love this book, and it's second installment, Effortless! But I learned only now that there are 2 endings to the story. What I have is dark ending, where ***spoiler alert*** Keira received the blow for Kellan. Would you mind sharing your other ending? I would love to read it! Thanks!!!
