Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens is one of those books that breaks all of the rules and yet you still love every second of it. First there is the fact that the lead female character is so universally hated and then there is the fact that she cheats on her boyfriend and not just once but again and again and again. And last but not least there is the badly designed book cover.

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.
Despite all the things the book does wrong, when you finish reading it you can’t stop thinking about it. It’s one of those books that just sticks with you for days or even weeks after. I read this book in 2013 and yet nearly three years later I can still remember it well. I remember the roller coaster of emotions the author took me on.
This is one of those books that you either love or you absolutely hate. No, it’s not perfect. Clearly it was written by someone who didn’t have a lot of money to invest into editing. But the story is so good, you can easily overlook those problems.
I loved this book. I loved the whole series. I know the writing wasn’t perfect. I know that Kiera was annoying and made you want to scream at her several times but that really is what makes me rate this book so highly. The story is so well written you really feel like it’s real. You walk away from reading this book feeling like you know these people.
To me, that is what makes a great story. If a year or two or even three years later you can still remember a story, then that also speaks to how great the story is. That is what Thoughtless is. The story won’t be for everyone but for those who do like it will no doubt love it as much as I do.
