In Thoughtless, Kiera told her story. Now it's time to hear from the sexy rock star who captivated us all . . .
The only place Kellan Kyle has ever felt at home is onstage. Gripping his guitar in a darkened bar, he can forget his painful past. These days his life revolves around three things: music, his bandmates, and hot hookups. Until one woman changes everything . . . Kiera is the kind of girl Kellan has no business wanting-smart, sweet, and dating his best friend. Certain he could never be worthy of her love, he hides his growing attraction . . . until Kiera's own tormented heart hints that his feelings might not be one-sided. Now, no matter the consequences, Kellan is sure of one thing-he won't let Kiera go without a fight.

Q&A with S.C Stephens
1. Tell us about your writing process. Do you start with an idea or a character?
I usually start with an idea, and the characters spring to life from there. Do you know what’s going to happen from the beginning or do you figure it out as you write? I typically have a general idea of where I want the story to end up, but things come to me as I’m writing, so the story often changes.
2. What did Kellan and Kiera exchange for Valentine’s Day this year?
They’re very busy, so time alone together is what they cherish most.
3. What was hardest about writing the story from Kellan’s perspective?
I think the hardest part was making sure everything lined up with the first book. I went through Thoughtless page by page to make sure it was consistent. What was the most fun? Any scene where all of the guys were together. I love the camaraderie between the band members.
4. How has music played a role in your life and in your writing?
Music gives me ideas, and is basically the reason for Kellan’s existence. I “saw” him singing every song I listened to on the radio. I fell in love with him long before I wrote his story.
5. Many readers say Kellan was the first/favorite book boyfriend. What do you think appeals to readers about him?
I think it’s a mixture of his job, his past, his looks, his pain, and the fact that he is so incredibly devoted to the people he cares about.
I don't even know where to begin with this book, so I'll say this, I'm normally not a fan of the same book being written over in the male POV. I find that more often than not, it's just the same stuff I've already - nothing new is rarely ever brought to the table so to say I was having an internal battle with myself reguarding Thoughtful is an understatement. In the end I lost the battle and read the book.
THANK GOD I read the book! It's absolutely nothing I expected but everything I wanted and needed. S.C made it seem as I was reading an entirely new story. Now sure, it had some repetition, but it has to, other than basic stuff it was a completely new journey.
Seeing things in the eyes of Kellan Kyle was beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. The journey was different but the end game was all the same. I laughed and cried and suffered the pain that felt dealing with pain. Pain of falling for a woman that wasn't his, pain of hurting a brother who protected him, pain of his past and pain of his future.
This was just an overall incredible read. I highly recommend it and I thoroughly think fans of the Thoughless Trilogy will devour it in one sitting (just like I did) The writing was flawless and the emotion was spot on! Bring on the next book (Griifin's) This book gets five bright and shiny stars from me.
