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 Thoughts

I fell in love with the Thoughtless series, so when I saw that there was a new book coming out and that it was going to be from Kellan's POV, I said, oh, h*ll yeah! It's about time. I have been wanting to get inside of Kellan's head ever since I read the first book. Now this is where this review, my thoughts, gets hard for me, because I liked Kiera in Thoughtless. I could understand that she was naive and she’d never been away from her family or home, and that Danny was her first boyfriend; her first everything. And now she has moved away from home and out on her on, going to college, working at a Pete's bar, and living with Danny. Life was coming fast at this naive girl. And then we add hot sexy-as-sin rock singer with his own band, Kellan Kyle. Yeah, I could see where Kiera was on overload to grow up fast. I had to keep reminding myself of these things about Kiera when reading this story through Kellan's POV, for the pain Kiera was causing, because I really didn’t want to like Kiera in this book. My heart was ripped to pieces, torn to shreds for Kellan. OMG how much this broken man endured from Kiera for being in love with her. I knew Kellan was a broken man from Thoughtless, but I couldn't see how deep his brokenness went until seeing through his POV. Kellan lived in pain and heartache. This man was crushed.

If you haven't read the Thoughtless series, then I highly recommend that you do—but I don't know if I would recommend that you read Kellan's POV first. You might not be able to see the real truth of who Kiera's character is. I do feel the titles are true to the characters of these books. Keira's is definitely thoughtless and Kellan's is most definitely thoughtful.

I hope S.C. Stephens is planning to continue to give readers the other two books, Effortless and Reckless from Kellan's POV, also. I would love to see Kellan's healing process through the next two books just as I got to see Kiera's growth into a secure, mature woman though these two books. I highly recommend Thoughtful as a must read. You will fall even more in love with the sexy rock singer Kellan Kyle the second time around.
