Thoughtful (Thoughtless #1.5), by S.C. Stephens ★★★★★


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.

5 Stars for Kellan & Kiera.

My Casting:

I don’t even know how to review this book. Kellen Kyle will always be my number one and that’s pretty much the beginning and the end!!

“I have a life without you. You’re not my entire world. You’re just the part I loved the most…”

Usually, I just do not have the patience for these alternate POV books. I can’t do re-reads and I feel like authors just copy and paste these books, change some of the inner monologues and whack it on Amazon to get us to part with our money a second time around. And ordinarily, that winds me up. I mean, even with Beautiful Disaster andHopeless, when I adored the originals, I just felt like I was being conned…

And to be honest, the same can probably be said for this book.


I will never, ever get enough of Kellan. Plus, I think the fact that I read Thoughtless so long ago now, helped so much. I think S.C. Stephens was super smart leaving it so long between books, because there was so much about Kellan and Kiera’s story that I’d forgotten and it was like I was reading it for the first time, again.

“I’m in love with you. You gave yourself to me, then ran right back to him. You. Killed. Me.”

Whereas, with BD and Hopeless, I felt like their alternate POV books came out pretty quickly, and the story was still fresh in my mind, so I was just going over what I already knew. I don’t know if that’s the difference, or whether it is simply that S.C. Stephens and Kellan can do no wrong in my eyes. Yes, I know, I totally have double standards.

But whatever the reason, I fell in love with this story all over again. OMG, the feels!!! Honestly, nothing makes me feel like when I’m reading this series. I love all of the characters so much. These books are so deeply ingratiated into my heart and soul and I really don’t think my loyalty to them will ever allow me to love any characters more than them.

“Because I was head-over-heels, ends-of-the-earth, till-death-do-us-part in love with her.”

But, if you’ve read Thoughtless then you know what I’m talking about anyway, so I don’t need to harp on. And yes, this review may be a little biased and unfair, but if you love Kellan Kyle as much as I do, and I know many of you do, then hopefully you will feel exactly the same.

If you haven’t read any of this series yet, then I can not tell you how much you need Kellan in your life. You have to read Thoughtless #1 asap!!!!! However, in which case, I don’t think this book would work so well if you read this too soon after. And equally, if you’ve only recently discovered this series, this addition might not be for you. However, if you read Thoughtless some time ago and can’t remember it word for word, then I think you’ll enjoy revisiting with these characters!
