Thoughtful by S.C. Stephens ~Review & Giveaway~

In Thoughtless, Kiera told her story. Now it's time to hear from the sexy rock star who captivated us all . . .
The only place Kellan Kyle has ever felt at home is onstage. Gripping his guitar in a darkened bar, he can forget his painful past. These days his life revolves around three things: music, his bandmates, and hot hookups. Until one woman changes everything . . . Kiera is the kind of girl Kellan has no business wanting-smart, sweet, and dating his best friend. Certain he could never be worthy of her love, he hides his growing attraction . . . until Kiera's own tormented heart hints that his feelings might not be one-sided. Now, no matter the consequences, Kellan is sure of one thing-he won't let Kiera go without a fight.


Determined to stop thinking, to just go with whatever happened, I dipped my finger into my drink and wet the backs of our hands. Kiera watched every move I made as I shook some salt over our hands. When she made no move to drink her shot, I broke the ice and took mine so she’d feel more comfortable about doing this with me. My throat was numb from doing Jäger shots all night, so it didn’t even burn. It burned for Kiera though.
Her tongue came out to lick the salt off her hand, her mouth opened to receive her drink, and her lips curled around the lime, squeezing its juices. It was an erotic thing to watch. Then her face twisted into a grimace. I chuckled at her reaction, then poured us another round.
The second shot went down easier for her. The third was even easier. We didn’t talk, just drank. And the more alcohol she consumed, the hungrier her eyes became. She was staring at me as tenaciously as the women in the bar did. I did my best to ignore it, but it was difficult to do…I wanted her to look at me like that. I wanted to look at her like that. But I wasn’t about to make any assumptions on what was going to happen tonight. We were just two friends sharing a drink. Two single friends who had almost shared a lot more recently…
By the fourth shot, the alcohol was getting to me. I spilled the tequila trying to pour it in those tiny little glasses. I laughed as I almost dropped the lime from my mouth. I was way beyond buzzing now.
On the fifth shot, everything changed. Just as I was bending down to lick the salt from my skin, Kiera took my hand and ran her tongue over the back of it. She was soft, wet, warm, and felt amazing on my sensitive body. I wanted her to keep doing it, but she pulled back to drink her tequila shot. When she placed her wedge of lime between my lips, my heart sped up. Was she…?
She was. Her mouth reached up to connect with mine. Our lips pressed together as she sucked on the lime. All I could taste was lime and her. It was an intoxicating combination. But it wasn’t nearly satisfying enough. I needed more.
My breath felt strained when Kiera pulled away. Ragged. She teasingly removed the lime from her mouth and set it on the counter. When she seductively licked her fingers, my resolve evaporated. I suddenly didn’t give a shit what we’d been before, or who we’d been with. I didn’t care if she’d dated Denny—that seemed like a long-past memory at the moment. I didn’t care about Evan’s warnings, my regrettable experience with bedding roommates, my promise to Denny to stay away, or my own decision to not cross that uncrossable line. Kiera kissed me. She wanted me. And fuck, I wanted her too.
I took my shot of tequila straight, slammed the glass on the counter, then pulled her back to my mouth, where she belonged.
Our lips moving together felt better than I had imagined. There was so much eager, pent-up passion, I felt like we were both going to burst into flames. I couldn’t get enough of her. My hand on the back of her neck tightened, drawing her in even closer. My other hand found the small of her back. Perfection.


The heart wants what it wants and this heart has just been filled to the fullest with KELLAN KYLE! I’m still thrilled that I got another book in this series.
S.C. Stephens has done it again and written a book that not only blew me away, but captivated me heart and soul. Thoughtful by S.C. Stephens was all I hoped it would be and more, definitely my favorite read this year.  Kellan’s POV was just remarkable; I don’t think I have ever loved being inside a character’s head as much as I did Kellan’s.

Kellan Kyle, what can I say? The man is just PERFECT!! Yes I said perfect, he’s gone beyond my expectations in this story. He has his flaws, as does everyone, but he also has a way of capturing every part of you. I loved how he expressed his love for music. It was so touching and I was so happy that he found something that gave him the hope he deserved.
My heart broke more than one time in this book for Kellan. His childhood broke me every time he would have a flashback or thought about how his parents treated him. Being let into that part of his life made me love and adore his character TEN times more. I also enjoyed getting to know Kellan and Denny’s relationship in this book. I was so glad that in such a dark time in his life, Kellan found someone he could depend on and that looked out for his wellbeing. That made me like Denny a lot more. I think I enjoyed most though just getting to know what Kellan was thinking and what went through his head with everything him and Keira go through. Everyone is going to fall in Love with Kellan Kyle ALL OVER AGAIN!!

So if you are a HUGE S.C. Stephens and a Thoughtless series Fan. I HIGHLY Recommend you download this amazing story. It will take you so far and beyond your expectations and leave you filled with so much love for Kellan. If you haven’t read any of the books in this series, well NOW is the time to start. I would recommend Thoughtful & the whole series to EVERYONE who loves a love story and bad boy rock star who steals your heart.
