THOUGHTFUL by S.C. Stephens: A Book Review by Mauve Fairy

A new novel in the Thoughtless series from #1 New York Timesbestselling 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'sworth 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.

Mauve Fairy's Review

ARC via Netgalley

First of all I want to thank S.C. Stephens for telling this compelling love story in Kellan Kyle's POV. It had been years since I read Thoughtless. I loved that series, and I fell in so much love with the rock star hero. Kellan ruined all the other rock star heroes for me. He is my absolute rock star book boyfriend and no one will ever compare to him! I know that reading his thoughts and feelings on what happened would wreck me once again maybe absolutely destroy me but this is a journey I'm willing to partake. 

To those who have not read this beautiful series, the story deals with a love triangle. The girl involve is someone forbidden since she's his best friend's girl. Their journey is sad, heartbreaking, unpleasant and distressing but exhilarating and satisfying at the same time when you get to the end. 

Reading this super angsty novel in KK's POV transported me back when I read the first book. I purposely did not re-read the series because I want everything to feel new in my eyes. I want to start with this story as if I have not read how painful it was. Reading this again, I was reminded of that excruciating journey as every scene was told in his eyes. Even though every scene unfolded like it was just yesterday, each scene did not feel as if they were rehashed. Each scene written gave some insight on what Kellan's thoughts  were and what was in his heart, giving the whole thing a different view and perspective. 

This book not only gave the hero's feelings and thoughts. It also explained some of his childhood upbringing, what made him the way he is. Flashbacks regarding the start of Kellan and Denny's friendship were also told, thus cementing some of his actions and the reasons behind them. The friendship between the band mates were also highlighted making them a great support system to Kellan. I particularly admire Evan's way of protecting Kellan. He truly is a great friend.  

I hated Kiera in Thoughtless. I hated her in this book even more. Her thoughtlessness, indecisiveness and recklessness makes her a bitch and I don't really care for her. The only thing that makes her bearable to me is she's the love of Kellan's life and she makes him happy. 

Every rock star fanatic must read this series and every fan of this series must read this book. KK's POV is a great addition to the series and must not be sidestepped. S.C. Stephen's writing is fabulous! She nailed everything and made everything true to the character. If you love Kellan Kyle, you will definitely love him even more after listening to his voice.
