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.

    Story
    "Hated it; then Liked it; then Hated it again;;"

    When I started this book I was so annoyed, I thought I had bought another YA book. The dialog was soooo juvenile. Every other sentence was, "I blushed", "My whole body blushed", &I thought I will never get through this book. Then as it became an interesting seduction I enjoyed some of it. But then it took on that unreal, ugly, psychology dialog. Which I hate. Having a "Code Phrase", to stop all action no matter what. Where did this come from.
    In the beginning I thought Kellan might be bi-sexual. He was such a player...and targeted her from the beginning but she did also. I wanted to slap her more than once. But then I took the time to remember when I was late teens/early 20's. If I had been in this circumstance I can't say I wouldn't have made some of the same mistakes. But while the "pull&tug" between the two men that Kiera is not taking the responsibility for encouraging to say the least. I kept saying out loud...get out of that house. Go home&grow up. I couldn't respect Kiera but I could appreciate her immaturity in the very grown up world she has placed herself in.
    It is frustrating Kiera thinks she is going to be "The One" that changes this bad boy.
    3 downloads where unnecessary for this storyline. She could have made all this happen in 1.
    I really wish I could find out what the "target audience" is for each book. I don't think I would have purchased this book.
    I really tried to like the narrator but I didn't care for her. But she sounds age appropriate for the book. But mostly I blame the author.

    "Best book ever"
    Where does Thoughtless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my favorite series.


    What other book might you compare Thoughtless to and why?

    As far as I am concerned there is no comparison.


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

    Very pleasant voice. Brings the story to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book is like a roller coaster! It is ful of highs and lows to keep the reader engaged.

    I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.

    Story
    "Unexpectedly, brutally, addictingly realistic."

    I believe that this book may fight its way to the top two on my list of favorite love stories. Yes, love stories. I apologize to some of the indignant reviewers who have claimed this to be a morally corrupt play on passions and deciet, but although the affair was wrong, this is a love story. Don't let the bitter people steer you away from this story- the only people that is story ISN'T for are those who've never loved. For everyone else, the messages in this story (including the consequences of cheating) make it worth your while. All of my above claims would be worthless if this book were poorly written, or even poorly narrated, but it was not. The writing is correctly focused for a first person story of an intelligent, shy woman, and the narration was equally well chosen. The book managed to stay interesting and superficial, while still casting deeper meanings and understandings without throwing around flashy metaphors or faked heroism.

    I felt that this story uniquely affected me, and that it has the potential to affect everyone in a slightly different way. There is no trashy sexual descriptions, and this level of romantic writing has raised my standards of what a true love story should feel like.

    "Couldn't put it down!"
    Would you listen to Thoughtless again? Why?

    If only because the narrator didn't butcher an Australian accent. Definitely worth a second listen!


    Any additional comments?

    Great story! Found myself talking/yelling at the radio commuting to work... the main character was awful at being bad but it was a train wreck you just couldn't tear your eyes away from. Every wrong turn you knew it was just going to get worse and worse. The author did not disappoint! Great story!

    Who was the most memorable character of Thoughtless and why?

    Kellan Kyle. This beautiful rock star with such a low sense of himself.

    Would you listen to Thoughtless again? Why?

    Yes, not all books suck you in and make you feel like part of the story..

    Rebekkah does great, you feel in her voice the emotion..

    What made the experience of listening to Thoughtless the most enjoyable?

    I love this trilogy. 50 shades with less sex & more story.

    I love Kiera. She is very innocent & reminds me of my little sister.


    Have you listened to any of Rebekkah Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't want the trilogy to end. I actually dragged out the last couple of chapters.

    "Couldn't help but get lost in this one!"

    This is an emotional read! It may take a few hours to get into but once your in, you cant put it down! A young lady caught between a loving reliable boyfriend and a hot magnetic lover is forced to make a choice between staying safe or steamy passion. Did I mention the guys are extremely close friends? She wants her cake and eat it too! Who dont? Yea, its a pretty realistic story. The last few chapters will break your heart. Almost anyone who has ever been in love will relate! Thoughtless has set the bar pretty high for the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Slow !!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    There were some great points in the book, but Kiera's inability to make a decision between the two men was annoying. Half of the story was why she loved Kellen and or Denny and why she couldn't break their hearts. It kept repeating this over and over and OVER! The male and female characters were interesting, sexy, and well developed. The story line was good, the sex was hot, but it shouldn't have taken 20 hours to get to the end of the story.


    What could S. C. Stephens have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If it wasn't so repetitive. I didn't buy the second book due to the repetitiveness in the first book.


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

    She was smooth and seemed effortless in her narration between male and female characters. It isn't Rebekkah's fault, but there was some horrible background noise that was distracting to the narration.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Definitely. Movies can edit content and be able to make a point without having to repeat it over and over again.
