Thoughtless

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....

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Terrible Terrible Terrible"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Really really young women that don't mind a very immature lead character.


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

    Keira was just so annoying I couldn't get past her. The constant flip flopping, acting like she was torn apart by hurting Denny and Kellan but still doing it... and getting more and more horrible. Her constant statements of "irritation flashed through me" really drove me crazy.


    Which character – as performed by Rebekkah Ross – was your favorite?

    Kellan


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Thoughtless?

    Everything that entailed her begging for Kellan to stay, and Keira sneaking into Kellan's room while Denny slept.... pretty much every scene after Denny came back.


    Any additional comments?

    This book would have been way better if the tension between Kellan and Keira went on longer without acting on it. And if Keira could have just made a decision and been a grown up, independent person with the ability to take care of herself. she was just so weak and incapable of doing anything by herself... like starting school by herself or Denny being gone a couple of months... she couldn't cope with ANYTHING without a man which is why she cheated on Denny within hours of "breaking up". It was just ridiculous. I like this genre normally, so immature content isn't beneath me, but this was just beyond immature and lame.

    Story
    "Some people sure know how to mess things up"
    What was most disappointing about S. C. Stephens’s story?

    Kiera. WTH! I could follow along with the story up through the first "indiscretion". I even could side with her at that point but after that, I just wanted to slap her and turn off the book. I struggled through more and more of the book and the frustration just kept dragging on. Sure there was passion in the book but it wasn't enough to compensate for the rest of the story.


    Which character – as performed by Rebekkah Ross – was your favorite?

    None. Denny was oblivious in the beginning (but "perfect" the remaining time), Kellan was vindictive and, honestly, the one who let the whole "cuddling" thing start in the first place, and I've already voiced my issues with Kiera.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    Story
    "Rollercoaster of emotions"

    Wow, this one put me through the ringer. Kiera is a young woman who has moved far away from her family with Denny. Denny is the only man she has ever been with and he is her first love. They move in with Kellan. Kiera is attracted to Kellan.Something happens (don't want to spoil the story) and she has sex with Kellan and the emotional rollercoaster begins.

    Other reviews think badly of Kiera but I see her as an inexperienced young woman who loves Denny with a young girls love, but loves Kellan with a woman’s love and has no idea how to deal with this. In my opinion this is so similar to situations to life. Life isn’t black or white, its shades of grey and everyone deals with things their own way. Kiera is on the verge of becoming a woman and she loves two men.

    This is a great listen. I was on the edge of my seat, knowing what she should do, wondering what she would do. I felt so bad for Denny, Kellan and Kiera. It is so similar to life. I felt like it was a credit well spent.

    "What a childish book"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a very poorly written and preformed book. The story is pathetic with a stupid main lead Kera. She was such a baby about everything. The two boy's were just as bad. The book was so drawn out and way to long for all the dribble in it. The narrator was not good and sounded board most the time with a horrible empty tinny sound. Not recorded properly sounding like she was recording in a tunnel or something like. I would not recommend wasting a credit on this one.

    "Too much ache not enough pleasure"

    This was such a hard book to listen too. So much unnecessary pain. I loved Keelan and Denny but I just couldn't love Kierra. She was selfish and I don't think she deserved either of them. She should have let one go way earlier in the book and could have still felt torn but not like a greedy selfish cheater. How can she ever prove her love to Keelan now to much damage has been done. I gave Keelan and Denny and star but that's all I got.

    Would you try another book from S. C. Stephens and/or Rebekkah Ross?

    No it's too predictable and continues to go in circles going no where.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Jodi Ellen Malpas "One night Denied"


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rebekkah Ross’s performances?

    It depends on the book!


    Any additional comments?

    This was not what I thought

    "One star as that is the lowest rating I could give"
    What disappointed you about Thoughtless?

    The book...what I listened to...just too nauseating to finish....was terrible. No real characters, absolutely no plot....what was the point??


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

    Nothing, obviously she thoughtlessly thought this was a good effort and believe it or not someone published it! And there are sequels!! There may be an audience who would enjoy it, doesn't include me.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rebekkah Ross?

    I would never suggest any narrator that I like and enjoy to put their voice to this book


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Thoughtless?

    How about the whole thing.


    Any additional comments?

    My opinion is that this book is a complete fail from start to where ever it went. I just found it didn't go anywhere from page one and the fact there are other books continuing this plot-less boring book boggles my mind. Just my opinion, if you like it, have at it.

    Story
    "What a mistake."
    What would have made Thoughtless better?

    The overall narrative could have been more consistent. Even if I dislike the story, if it had been told without so many "about nothing" scenes.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    My next book will be the first book of the "Legend" series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rebekkah Ross’s performances?

    Yes. This particular one had a weird hollow echo. The performance might have been affected by the fact that the story was terrible.


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

    Anger and dissappointment.
