Review Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens

Review
Thoughtless (Thoughtless #1) by S.C. Stephens

Description: 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 opinions:

Oh. My.
God. This book:

 

May I admit
that I love love love this book but I
kinda hate it too? I’m freaking overwhelmed and exhausted after that emotional
rollercoaster! But you wanna know the reason? The love triangle. No,
scratch that. The only reason is Kiera -_-

 

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

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.” 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.”

I fought back a sob. “And you? What happens to you in that scenario?”

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

 

But let me
start from the beginning. The book is told from Kiera’s POV, a young woman who
follows her boyfriend Denny in Seattle after he graduated and who enrolls at
the local University just to be with him. I loooved Denny and his sweet, loyal
personality. He’s good looking, intelligent, devoted and charming. Oh, and
Australian – always good for a sexy little accent 😉 They’re moving in Kellan
Kyle’s house, Denny’s best friend from high school, who’s also a sing leader in
a famous local band named D-Bags. <—
Does that sentence look a little bit too goody-goody to describe Kellan
Kyle? Well then let me try again. Ahem.

 

HOLY FREAKING HOT (and sexy),
SWOON-WORTHY, PANTY-DROPPING-GORGEOUS, INCREDIBLY TALENTED AND FUNNY
Kellan Kyle. Yep, that
was me having a total fan-girling moment. *sigh*

 

Kiera is
attracted to him from moment No. 1, but she just blaims it on his ridiculuosly
good looks. She also gets a new job as a waitress at Pete’s, the bar where
Kellan’s band plays. But Denny gets an amazing new job also that forces him to
leave in Tucson for two months, leaving Kiera behind with Kellan for a hell a
lot of time. And this, my darlings, is where the fun (and pull-hairing) begins…
*grins*

 

“He said I was
his heart, and you don’t leave your heart behind. You can’t live without your
heart.”

 

Kiera’s
lonely and depressed after Denny leaves and Kellan is right there to comfort
her. They start a wonderful easy going friendship that had me swooning over the
guy. But when the sparks between them start to flame, I just knew there was
going to be an incendiary collision that will leave burning consequences
behind.

 

“We were never
innocent, Kiera. How naive are you?”

 

After a
fight with Denny, Kiera makes two decisions that decide her path instantly that
– ha, did you honestly think I’ll tell you how the whole story unwraps? Really?
No, not this time ladies, because I want you to pick up the book and go through
the same emotional-yet-beautiful torture I’ve been through. Muhaha… *grins*

 

At least
the ending was great and left me totally hooked. Heart-warming yet
heartbreaking, intense yet light, sexy yet pure and lovely. Loved it!

 

“I don’t know
how to let you back in.” My heart beat spiked and I closed my eyes when he
whispered,” I don’t know how to keep you out either.”

 

My favorite
character was definitely the godlike swoon/drool/crush/rape worthy Kellan Kyle.
He made me laugh out loud and smile all the time. But don’t let that perfectly
face of his fool you – he’s broken, lost and hopeless. My eyes watered when he
told his story, the little glimpes of pain he expressed shocking me on a whole
new level. I just wanted to hug, kiss and protect him like I’d be his momma
bear. Regardless, you’ll fall head over your heels in love with him.

 

“He spoke
rapidly in-between his tender kisses. “I love you. I’m sorry. I’m so
sorry. The women…I was so scared to touch you. You didn’t want me…I
couldn’t take the pain. I tried to get over you. Every time with them, I was
with you. I’m so sorry…I love you.”

 

And Denny,
oh dear God, Denny! Sweet, loyal, charming Denny. My heart broke for him time
after time, hoping he’ll get out of this mess. But when the lies and insecurities
about Kiera started to show, the feelings he must’ve felt left me in a
depressed mode. At the end of the book, there was such an intense and emotional
slap in the face for him that he just exploded. I wanted to take him under my
wing and protect him from all the lies and complots. He didn’t deserve any of
that.

 

“I want to be
someone’s everything. I want fire and passion, and love that’s returned,
equally. I want to be someone’s heart.”

 

The
secondary characters were, in one word, amazing. I loved the guys (okay,
besides Griffin), Jenny, Anna, Kate and everyone else around. They lighted up
the mood and pushed me through the confusing feelings I felt over the whole
love triangle situation and for that I’ll be always grateful.

 

“Dude, he’s
Australian…not a pirate.”

 

And this is
where I stop with my totally-fan-girlin’-rambling and just complain about one thing.
One single tiny character I haven’t approached. Kiera.

 

“There were so
many secrets between us now, it was hard remembering a time when things had
been simple & easy, when it had felt like pure puppy love. I suppose all
love eventually comes back down to earth.”

 

Who the
hell does what she did???? Ruining a wonderful relationship with Denny?? Now
don’t get me wrong, I’m all Team Kellan, but alternating between two amazing
guys, leading them on and on and being unable to just freaking choose made me
want to strangle her 99,99 % of the book. She was annoying, selfish, immature
and she didn’t deserve Kellan nor Denny. I really wanted to shake her, slap
her, pull her hair – really, anything would’ve worked. She hurt both guys  on countless times and my heart ached
constantly for them. But somehow I managed to get through her issues and finish
the book (hooray!), because regardless of her personality, this book is a
must-read.

 

 

S.C.
Stephens created complex characters, confusing desires and overwhelming stories
in this book. Thoughtless was quite the page turner with all the sexy, steamy
scences, heartbreaking revelations and the funny lines that cheered me up
completely. An addictive story that will leave you breathless, gasping for
more, although the ending doesn’t have a cliffhanger. So I recommend it to
everyone who loves a good love triangle and has the patience to finish the
book. I guarantee that in the end you’ll love it. ❤

 

“It was
heartfelt, it was heartbreaking. It was extreme joy, it was bone-crushing
grief. It was fiery hot, it was icy-cold. It was true love sprouting… it was
true love dying.
It’s like we were both trying to hold onto something that was slipping through
our fingers, and we didn’t understand why.”

 

ENJOY!
