Blog Tour / Thoughtful by SC Stephens

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.

My Review

At the beginning of the year I say to myself that I am going to broaden my reading horizons and try new things, even try genres that I would not previously go anywhere near to see if my tastes have changed or whether that particular book will change them for me.  This is one of those books that I chose to broaden those horizons.  

What I loved about this book...
I really enjoyed reading this book.  For me what I liked the most was the depth and background of the characters, particularly Kellan, and how they progress throughout the book.  I enjoyed following Kellan in this story and seeing things from his perspective and I am definitely intrigued to find out more with the first book in this series.  I am not sure at this point whether it makes a difference to read these in order but I am definitely going to pick up the first book as it has intrigued me to find out more of the story (or the other side of the story).    

What I was not fond of with this book...
This is purely from a personal viewpoint but one of the things that I cannot stand is cheating in any way, shape or form and this is featured in this book.  I found it very hard to get on either Kiera's side when I knew that she was cheating, as well as on Kellan's side too.  Although I did enjoy the story, this is something that bothered me a lot but that is my a personal opinion of mine so please do not let that come in the way of picking this up and giving it a go - it is a good read.

Her debut novel, Thoughtless, an angst-filled love triangle charged with insurmountable passion and the unforgettable Kellan Kyle, took the literary world by storm. Amazed and surprised by the response to the release of Thoughtless in 2009, more stories were quick to follow. Stephens has been writing nonstop ever since.
