Emma is happy. She’s got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her social life has been a little lacking lately. That’s when fate stepped in, and crashed her into a tall, dark and handsome man. Sure, he has his secrets…don’t we all, and, yeah, maybe his secrets are a little more unusual than most – like he’s a partial vampire who can walk around during the day, but also enjoys a little plasma nightcap now and again – but to Emma, he’s single, successful, and an extraordinary gentleman. That makes up for a lot. Of course, his condition is a bit more serious than he first lets on, and living a life with him will require some sacrifices that most just aren’t willing to make. Will she? Is love enough to compensate for a life that will never be anywhere near the realm of normalcy? But then again…what’s normal anyway?
 
     

Brandee’s Review:

Let me start by telling you that I have a totally different perspective in reviewing this book……Why you ask? Because I have read 4 of the books in this series already! It has been years, but it was before S.C. Stephens started officially publishing her books.
I did not get the chance to fully re-read Conversion for my review today, BUT I really did not have to as this series has STUCK with me through the years and when I think back to these books, there are so many parts that still get all my emotions going crazy.
When I read Conversion, it was my first vampire book after reading the Twilight series. While this is a “vampire” based book, you do not have to be a paranormal fan to enjoy reading this book. I am not a traditional vampire story kind of girl. S.C. Stephens certainly has created an original storyline, I loved that I never knew where the story was going to go.
I will be honest and say when I started Conversion, it did not grab me right away. ONLY because there was not build up of their relationship and I did not totally love the scene when Emma found out he was a vampire. BUT since I loved reading the author’s other books, I kept reading anyway. I AM SOOO GLAD THAT I DID! This story is NOT about the build-up of their relationship, but more of the continued love story, family, friendships and lots of twists and adventures.
I fell in love with Teren, the male lead, he is absolutely swoon-worthy (I can still picture him in my head). I LOVED Emma and Teren’s love story. I LOVED the relationships with Emma and Teren’s families. Now (not during reading!), I can look back and say I even loved that she made me cry! S.C. Stephens certainly captured my attention, made me laugh, made me cry and kept me on the edge of sanity with my heart pumping out of my chest, everything you could need in a book.
I really loved this story & series and I can’t wait for everyone to be able to catch up to me. Don’t worry, these books are not cliffhangers – without giving anything away, the additional books are just….more……and for me, each book just got better and better. If you were a fan of The Thoughtless Series and are skeptical of reading a paranormal story, don’t be…..S.C. Stephens has a talent to write about anything (and I would buy it) and I think she can get you wrapped up in her paranormal world just as easy as she grabbed your attention in her rocker world. I would love to hear your thoughts!
 
 

About the Author:

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.
