The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together. Fame comes with a price-but will it cost Kiera and Kellan everything?
As I have already said, The Thoughtless Series is one of my all-time favorites! I found S.C. Stephens years ago…..before she signed with a publisher. She used to post her books for free on Feedbooks and I would download and read them as soon as they were available. At that time, of course, you could not get one of her books in paperback. On March 1st, I heard that paperbacks of Reckless were already being released at Barnes & Noble and it was not officially scheduled to be released until the 5th (mind you, I already had a pre-order for the 5th and for less money too) so it should not be a big deal to wait right? only a couple more days……NO WAY! I HAD to track down a Barnes & Noble closest to me that had it in stock already. So, an hour and a half later I was back in my house all snuggled up ready for my date night with Kellan, my first book boyfriend (photo on right). They say you always remember your first……well, Kellan was mine.Can’t even really explain how thrilled I was to be holding an actual paperback from S.C. Stephens that I have never read before. Why am I telling you all this? I want you to understand how much I love and recommend this series! I really tried not to rush through Reckless because I wanted to cherish it and make it last. And this book is another long one – 530ish pages! But, as always, it really did not feel that long and for me, the story did not drag. I have to say that S.C. Stephens is such a talented writer to be able to keep my attention and for me to be able to read a book this length and not think it was just filled with fluff. I honestly think I loved every page……well, there has to be pages you don’t really love……this is S.C. Stephens and this is Kellan and Kiera……they could not have an easy flawless love story…..but it is the journey in getting there and I enjoyed every minute of it.
This book made me smile, laugh, get mad…..grrrr you will see, cry and, of course, my favorite part of these books……Kellan (swoon)….. I got to fall in love with Kellan Kyle all over again! Mmmmm -it was a HOT read!!!Every girl deserves to have a little Kellan Kyle in her life. And let’s not forget all of our other favorites….Kiera, Denny, Anna, Griffin, Evan, Matt, Jenny……. It is bittersweet that this is the end for this series and these characters, but since I have these books in paperback now, I am sure I will be coming back to reading them again and again.I am really having a hard time reviewing this book because I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL ANYTHING! All I will say, is if you have not read these books yet, you definitely want to jump on board!
A special thank you to S.C. Stephens for bringing us such an amazing story. I can’t wait for everyone to be able to read all of her other books that are waiting for “official publishing” – The Conversion Series is another one of my favorites!

S.C. Stephens is an independent author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.Her first attempt at a full-length novel was Thoughtless. She wrote the angst-filled love triangle in early 2009 and published it that summer on FictionPress. Amazed and surprised by the response, more stories were quick to follow. Conversion, the first novel in a three story vampire series, was released in the fall. Collision Course, a tragic, yet hopeful tale of love and loss was released in early 2010. The second Conversion novel came out next, along with It’s All Relative, a different take on a one night stand story.In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys reading other people’s fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer’s block reducing music, heading out to the movie theaters, and spending quality time with her children.
