Description

For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart.

Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes... and none of them will ever be the same.

Une histoire d'amour complexe et attendrissante

Je préfère prévenir tout de suite ceux qui n'aiment pas: dans ce livre il y a bel et bien un triangle amoureux. Kiera va se retrouver partager en Denny et Kellan pendant une bonne partie du roman, et elle ne va pas vouloir faire un choix tout de suite. Ce triangle ne m'a pas tapé sur les nerfs, car les personnages ont su me divertir, et surtout parce qu'ils vont essayer de se freiner pour que les choses n'aillent pas plus loin. Cependant, je pourrais reprocher à Kiera de ne pas avoir su ce qu'elle voulait tout de suite. Je comprend les raisons pour lesquelles elle était partagé, mais elle a fait deux ou trois caprices que j'aurais qualifié de petite fille.

J'ai cependant bien aimé ce personnage. En fait je crois que c'est surtout le duo Kellan-Kiera que j'ai plus apprécié que les deux individuellement. Kellan est sexy, parfois tête à claque, mais surtout attendrissant. Il a certes besoin d'être rassuré sans que pour autant ce soit trop. Il est solide et j'ai aimé tout ce qu'il a fait pour Kiera quand Denny est partis. Il a été un véritable ami et l'a aidé à traverser cette mauvaise passe.
Le petit jeu entre Kiera et Kellan est d'abord très innocent. On les voit peu à peu se rapprocher, soit par des bisous sur la joue, soit par de brefs câlins, mais surtout avec tous les moments qu'ils vont partager. Ils m'ont attendris et donné envie d'être à leur place. Le côté passionnel de leur relation est tout aussi intéressante. Kellan est un artiste, tout ce qu'il fait il le fait à 100% et on le ressent dans sa relation avec Kiera. Les étincelles qui crépitent quand les deux sont seuls ensemble m'ont donnés des papillons dans le ventre !
Et puis, ce que j'ai je pense le plus aimé c'est que même si leur relation est un peu tordue, elle n'est pas néfaste. Certes ce qu'ils vont faire est impardonnable, mais j'ai trouvé que ce qu'ils avaient essayé de construire était beau et tendre.

Enfin, la plume de l'auteure est belle et nous entraîne dans la course folle de ses mots. On ne sait jamais ce qu'il va se passer d'une page à l'autre. Il n'y a pas non plus trop de scènes de sexe et lorsqu'il y en a elles sont décrites avec douceur et beauté. Elle a même réussi à me soutirer quelques larmes vers la fin, une fin d'ailleurs que je n'avais pas vu venir et que j'ai beaucoup aimée.

Une histoire d'amour complexe, un couple attendrissant, passionnant et déchirant. La recette pour passer un excellent moment.

What a shocker!

I was really shocked at how good this book really is. Let me say this first, I totally understand why there are so many bad reviews; however, actually the book is not bad... just Kiera (the main female character) is misunderstood.

Quick summary: Kiera is originally with Denny and they move into Kellan's, Denny's friend, house. Denny goes away on a work trip and Kiera starts an emotional affair with Kellan. Kiera and Denny break up and then Kiera sleeps with Kellan. Denny comes back and Kiera goes back to Denny, but wants to maintain the relationship with Kellan as well.

Ok... now what make this book really shine are the characters. Each one is so unique, even down to the members of Kellan's band. Griffin was just great. Kellan is what you would call a "beautiful disaster" and Kiera is like his poison. Kellan actually falls in love with Kiera and throughout the whole book Kellan is trying to get Kiera to basically choose him. I found myself taking Kellan side on most everything that happen throughout the book. I really liked it when Kellan actually called Kiera a whore. That was awesome... !!!

Now, Kiera, even though I totally agreed with Kellan throughtout the book, I felt Kiera was seriously misunderstood. She was in love with Denny but Kellan was like her soul mate or whatever... so she was torn between two guys. I get it somewhat... She didn't want to hurt Denny, I got that... but Kiera was seriously doing some dirt!!!! I found it funny how she always got away with it and Kellan and Denny loved her even more.

I have to say "The slap heard around the bar" chapter was the best intense love/hate fight chapter I have ever read/listen to.... AWESOMENESS!!!!

This was my first Ross narration. I actually enjoyed her narration. She was very good with speeding up and slowing down as the drama and action built. I thought she really expressed Kiera the best, but not so bad with Kellan either. I like when the narrator actually change their voice to show different characters, and I think Ross did well, especially when Kiera, Kellan and Denny was all in one scene. Switching from Aussie Denny to laid back rocker Kellan to whinny Kiera was done really well.

This is a buy/credit. I would do either one. I would buy if you plan to buy the second one too... this will leave you wanting more. If you plan to wait for credits then, it’s a wait... Well worth it.

Noise in the background of the audio

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voice seems like its coming from a tunnel plus there is this noise in the background of the audio that keeps coming every once in a while

Second Verse Same as the First....

Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens and Narrated by Rebekkah Ross is O.K., but nothing really special. I found it to be extremely monotonous, and longer than necessary. The plot is almost nonexistent. Rebekkah Ross actually did a very good job with the narration, considering the length and repetitive nature of the story.

I am amazed that I stuck it out to the bitter end. I found myself wondering about how much longer it would take to get to the conclusion, which seldom happens to me. I would definitely not listen to this book again, and cannot say that it was/is credit worthy.
Bottom line: Save your credit!

BOOOOORING ........

I was bored to tears trying to listen to this book. The narrator I am sure did her best with the story but it was repetitive and just went on and on with no true end in sight. I have to admit that I gave up on reading it close to the end. I just could not take it any more. I will not be reading the other books in the series. Don't waste your credit on this one.

A story of a witless girl's love triangle

What disappointed you about Thoughtless?

The same phrases used over and over and over and over (pulled me in for a deep kiss). The main character that didn't have a clue, and couldn't make a choice.

Would you ever listen to anything by S. C. Stephens again?

No

What didn’t you like about Rebekkah Ross’s performance?

The narrator's teenage phrasing (a rise at the end of sentences that weren't questions).

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A hope that this girl would grow up

I wanted to THROTTLE Kiera!!

What would have made Thoughtless better?

If it was:
A. Shorter
B. Kiera had had a spine and brain
C. If it didn't exist at all

What was most disappointing about S. C. Stephens’s story?

The stupid, weak, blushing, sobbing, weak, indecisive and overall infuriating heroine.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Rebekkah Ross?

Yes.

What character would you cut from Thoughtless?

Kiera.

Any additional comments?

Don't read, unless you like weak and annoying heroines that make you want to throttle them...so basically read if you like 50 Shades of Grey without all of the intense sex scenes.

Could not get into this book

Perhaps it is just me but I could not get into this book. If I have rated it unfairly after listening to 2 chapters, then my bad. Don't waste a credit.

WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLY STUPID AND IMMATURE HEROINE!!

What did you like best about Thoughtless? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the fire between Kellen and Kiera. I could not stand the constant, never ending waivering, indecisive behavior of Kiera. The way this woman messes with this already broken man shows all of Kiera's worst flaws. She had the love of two brilliant and beautiful men but she didn't deserve either one.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I guess I will listen to the next book in the series but only because I am hoping that Kiera grows up a little in the next book.

What does Rebekkah Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

If I had been the one reading the book, I would have stopped after the first few chapters.

Do you think Thoughtless needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Thoughtless has a follow up book and its a good thing otherwise my opinion of Ms. Stephens would be that this is an amateur writter at best.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your credit on this undeniably frustrating book. The thing is, readers have to like the hero or heroine of a story so they stay interested in the storyline. If we don't think they deserve ANY happily ever after...who cares what their ever after is.

Story is Eh....Audio is terrible

I like Kellen but the character of Kiera is NOT likable at all. I wanted to hit her over the head with a 2 x 4 repeatedly.

I want to find out what happens to the other characters and to Kellen so I'll buy the next one but this isn't my favorite story.

Didn't like the reader at all.

The background in the audio is terrible and very distracting at times. Audible, whether I'm spending a credit or buying with cash, you really should fix the sound.

Ziemlich viel Sex

Die Hauptdartstellerin hüpft von einem Bett zum anderen, hat einen unermüdlichen Sextrieb. Also wer das mag, dem kann man dieses Hörbuch empfehlen. Die Geschichte ist auf jeden Fall ergreifend.
