BLOG TOUR ~ Thoughtful by 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.

I’m not actually a lover of the same book from a male POV, it just irritates me reading the same story again but there’s the odd occasion where my gut tells me that it’s going to be worth it and S.C. Stephens does not disappoint ~ AT ALL!!!

No need to re-hash the story, I’d be surprised if this book has readers that haven’t read at least Thoughtless so we all know what happens and what the end result is.
(However, if you are in that eensy teensy minority we'd strongly recommend you read Thoughtless first!)

Now I know without a doubt that Kellan is a book boyfriend fave, he’s loved by young and old, which is quite surprising for a self proclaimed manwhore and all the while stealing his best friends girl from under his nose when he was entrusted with her care & well being in a new city where she knew nobody!

But loved Kellan is and if you didn’t get that from Thoughtless, Thoughtful will just wreck you, I honestly felt like I was sitting in a room with a great friend, curled up on a comfy sofa, glass of wine in hand lending an ear and a shoulder whilst he poured out his heart and soul, berated himself for such poor decisions, self sacrificed to try and do the right thing, all after falling hopelessly in love with somebody he couldn’t have. I cried for him, I cried with him, I wanted to shake him and yet I couldn’t help feel desperately sorry for the mess he was caught up in.

Like a lot of people I wasn’t a huge fan of Kiera but I admired how protective and loyal Kellan was to her, she’s the love of his life, it was a mess created by the two of them, they both screwed up, he knew that, he didn’t want it resting completely on her shoulders and he really stepped up both physically & emotionally, jeez I felt I could see into his soul at times, even though I knew how the book ends I was rooting for him so bad, my heart was breaking for him. I questioned my own morality at times because if somebody had said “Denny” whilst I was reading, I’d have said “Denny who?”

Ultimately this story gives you a whole new perspective and an insight to all the crazy that goes on with Kellan, his childhood, the unusual start to his friendship with Denny, his parents appalling behaviour, his desire to just “be” his actions may be screwed up but his goals aren’t, what he’s asking for from life is simple and taken for granted by so many, he goes through hell for his happy ever after and I for one think he’s earned it!
