Editorial Reviews


"Wildly addictive, beautifully written, and uniquely captivating. Thoughtless is a simmering, slow burn." (Tracey Garvis-Graves, author of On the Island)

"Stephens has perfectly and with gut-wrenching honesty portrayed the reality of a love triangle, and the mess that ensues when bonds are severed and new ones are formed. What happens when you find your soul mate at the worst possible time, in the least expected place? What if being with that person means doing the most wrong thing you've ever done? Thoughtless is one of those books that leaves you thinking about these questions, the characters and their choices for days if not weeks after reading." (Tammara Webber, author of Easy)

"This story tears your heart right out! The steamy scenes will get your blood boiling and the gut-wrenching emotional turmoil will bring tears cascading. If you're a fan of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, I'd highly recommend this read! It's messy, dirty, raw, REAL! The story is beautifully written and keeps you interested with every turn of the page." (Book Snobs Blog)

"This book has climbed right to the top of my list of favorites this summer and made itself cozy there." (A Turn of Page)

"Really addictive. Could not put it down! This is my kind of guilty pleasure." (

"I felt like after Thoughtless I was climbing off of the longest, curviest, craziest roller coaster that I have ever virtually been on. Let me tell you, that is absolutely not a bad thing!" (The Indie Bookshelf Blog)

"If you enjoyed Beautiful Disaster, then you will enjoy this series!" (Nightly Reading Blog)

"From page one, this book is impossible to put down." (Abbi Glines, author of While It Lasts) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

More About the Author

S.C. Stephens is a bestselling author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.

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.

In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys spending lazy afternoons in the sun reading fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer's block reducing music, heading out to the movies, and spending quality time with her friends and family. She currently resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her two equally beautiful children.

Great story and I loved the characters.
Like most love triangles someone is going to get hurt, however you can't help but want Kiera and Kellan to be together and hope Denny will just walk away.
Tina R. Bucheger
If you like books with intense love stories that always have a happy ending and you love an emotional roller coaster ride...this book is for you.

Having fallen in love with Jamie McGuire's "Beautiful Disaster" and "Providence" and becoming obsessed with E.L James' Shades of Grey Trilogy, I went into S.C Stephens with incredible excitement. There is nothing better then wonderfully written characters who are finding themselves and eachother through a series of passionate encounters (whether it be sex or argument). Thoughtless certainly did NOT dissapoint!

Stephens wrote characters both main and supporting that were fun and lovable..passionate and likable. I found myself volleying back and forth between who I wanted our heroine (Kiera) to choose in the all inmportant love triangle between her, Denny, and Kellen. I truelly wanted too befriend each and every band member and bar employee. I loved the way both Denny and Kellen not only showed their love for Kiera but they grew from the experience and became stronger men from the experience....

Here in lies the problem (my inablity to give the fifth star). Kiera! In the other books I mentioned previously the heroines, while self-conscious, were strong capible women. They were able to make hard choices and stand behind them.
I read this entire book in love with each of the main characters..just waiting patiently for Kiera to make her all important show that she was strong and worth what these two incrediable men saw in her...and she didn't..

Kiera's weakiness as a heroine actually ruined what should have been a beautiful ending. Without giving away which amazing man "won" in the end...I can honestly say...I am not sure she deserved either one of them...

Often, I read a story then dwell on it, just to see if my opinion changes (sometimes it does). Didn't happen with this one... Let me tell you why.

The story had a good premise and the writing style was great. Everyone knows, however, that characters make or break the story. In this case, I could not stand them. I tried to remove spoilers but may have missed a few. Read at your own risk!

The characters:
Keira- the narrator/heroine. I HATE HER!! She's portrayed as an innocent, shy, and sweet girl (in her own thoughts). Except from her actions, she comes across as self-centered, spoiled, and a slut. She sleeps with Denny and Kellan at any given time throughout the whole book and claims she's remorseful but never shows it. Reminds me of when Rhett tells Scarlett she's like the theif that doesn't regret that she stole but that she got caught. Keira, similarily, doesn't regret sleeping with them, just that she loves both and can't choose. I can excuse her sleeping with Kellan the first two times, but when she continues... A few times, she went straight from Kellan's bed to Denny's. Ugh! She never redeems herself. A considerate, honorable, and honest person would have let both go.

Denny- Keira's boyfriend. I liked him until the end, but thought he was too naive. I mean, you're bringing your girlfriend to a guy's house (one who's known for sleeping around) and then basically leaving her there alone. Throughout the story, we're told that they've been together for a few years and he really knows her and understands her. Denny then should have known thst Keira has massive insecuirity issues and might turn to Kellan.

Kellan- The other guy/hero of the story. He is the ONLY character that was redeemable. He was sweet, considerate, generous, understanding.

I never wrote reviews of the books I read but I felt compelled to write one for Thoughtless.

I'm halfway through the book and I don't think I can continue reading it because I hate the heroine soooo much!!

Where to start? Kiera is a selfish, immature, sociopathic slut. She is the most unlikable female character that I've ever come across on a book, she makes "Thoughtless" unreadable because her character gets more annoying after every page.

The writing is horrible, the author thinks that she can make Kiera look innocent and cute just because she "blushed deeply" on every page after Kellan said something sexy to her. You get tired of reading on every paragraph how "sexy" Kellan is, what a "hot bod and adorable smile" he has, and how "sexy his messy hair" looks.

I don't understand the 5 star reviews!! Was I reading the same book? Please, save yourself the money, SKIP THIS ONE. I wish I did.

Not worth two bucks. If she blushed one more time or if someone chuckled adorably one more time, or if anyone did anything adorably one more time I was going to pick up my kindle and chuck it across the room. UGH!!! Worse writing ever!

This book is driving me crazy! Let me start by saying that I am listening to the audio version and not actually reading it. I decided to give my poor eyes a break, glad I did. Keria (is that how she spells it) has the spine of a jelly fish and I find her completely disgusting. She is the weakest female lead that I have read about in probably forever (Anastasia has more backbone) and the other characters do not make up for what she lacks. I'm tired of reading about a guy who looks so good that even after living with him, sleeping with him and hanging out with him on almost a daily basis that every time you see him you lose your breath, you morales and the ability to speak. REALLY!!!??? This girl has a mental problem! She's a big ole cheater and she doest want to tell her boyfriend because she does not want to hurt him, bull - who is she kidding, she just wants her cake and eat it too. Poor Keria it's breaking her heart.... Almost every moment she spends with Kellan is spent doing something that betrays her relationship with Denny (if I hear her whine his name again I'm going to throw-up). The obscene cuddling, neck nibbling, waist pulling, hand holding and ear whispering are not the actions of a woman in love with her boyfriend! I just needed Keria to OWN her dumb decisions, be a woman about it and stop playing the victim.

Lol! I'm not even finished with the book. I'm 4/5 of the way through and I just had to write this review because I'm so upset with it and needed to warn others. Oh and for all those reviews that say this is just as good or similar to 50 Shades of Grey NO IT IS NOT. Do not be fooled, this is closer to Beautiful Distaster but no where near as interesting. I think I'm going to go and write me a book about being a wishy-washy hypocrite with a male character so gorgeous that he blinds anyone that looks at him. It should sell millions.

Normally I am not this harsh, but this book took. Me there, in a bad way.
