    I so wanna win this!! I love these books–they are my favorite of all time!! SC Stephens is a wonderful and talented writer!! Kellan and Keira are awesome!!

  2. “Mornin’ ” Love these books and can’t wait to read the new one!

    Haven’t read Reckless, but read Thoughtless and Effortless and they’re brilliant!

  4. “He said I was his heart, and you don’t leave your heart behind. You can’t live without your heart.” from Thoughtless

    I LOVE this quote. So true.

  5. Paula McKinney March 7, 2013 at 5:33 pm · · Reply

    too many favorites…loved the scene in the park at Christmas!

  6. My favorite quote is from thoughtless towards the end “I’m so sorry, Kiera.” Kellan whispered to me, never once taking his eyes from the gate. Denny had just entered our small circle of private hell and there was no going back for him or any of us.

  7. “I love you too, Kiera. Just you. You’re my always.”

  8. This is my absolute favorite series! And I have two favorite quotes, both from Effortless: “But, if for some reason we’re not closer, if something has come between us, please, I’m begging you…don’t give up on me. Stay. Stay with me. Work it out with me. Just don’t leave me…please.” And of course, “I’ll have a Denver omelet…thank you.”

    My favorite is from Effortless.

    “I started at my phone like it had just grown lips and talked to me. I did say that smart ass comment out loud didn’t I? Did I subconsciously text it too?”

  12. “I could probably scrounge up a couple of rings if you guys want to get married too?”

    “Was he better….as me?” The fight in the rain in thoughtless. holy angst 😉

  14. I have been wanting to read these for a while now, but I always have to wait til the whole set is out. I hate waiting, even a couple of weeks, before I can read the next book!

    My favorite quote is during the scene in Thoughtless where Kellan gives Keira an ultimatum and she asks him what happens if she doesn’t choose him. *Tear*
    “And you? What happens to you in that scenario?”
    “I…get by. And I miss you, every day,” he whispered.”

    You wreck me. I love Kellan & Kiera

  72. My day isn’t complete until I’m deep inside you. Your body wrapped around mine is the only way I feel whole. But don’t think it’s just sex and a physical response to you that I’m feeling. It’s not it’s so much more. You’ve opened me in a way that leaves me bleeding, vulnerable. Being with you, making love to you, it only solidifies what I feel for you. I know that I’ve become one of those spouting, love-sick idiots, but what it all boils down to is three words that don’t mean nearly enough I love you.

    Absolutely love this series just began reading Reckless was checking every 5 mins on amazon for it to became live!! =)

  85. “You have any… nicknames?”
    Kellan gave me a charmingly crooked smile. “None that I’ve given myself, but from what I’ve heard said in the bedroom, it would probably be something like, “The Oh-God-yes-harder-faster-dont-you-dare-stop-yes-fuck-me-now-you’re-freaking-amazing Machine.” He shrugged. “Bur that’s kind of a mouth full.” – Effortless

  86. Havent gotten to reckless yet but CANNOT WAIT. I want them to have the happy ending that they deserve

  87. “Get in the damn car Kiera!” Ahhh…LOVE the angst!

  88. I have sooo many favorites from all 3 books!! But one that makes me laugh is a conversation between Kierra and Griffin….. Surprising myself I motioned for Griffin to hug me. He seemed surprised by that too. When he wrapped his arms around me , I whispered in his ear, “you be good to my sister. I sort of love you two together.” pulling back, Griffin gave me a devious smile. “you love me”
    My smile faded some. “I didnt say that”
    Nodding, Griffin released me. In singsong, he said, “But thats what you meant. You totally love me!”
    Standing, he put his hands up in the air so everyone would look at him. “Kierra totally wants me!”

    I just thought that was sweet and funny givin their relationship throughout the whole time Kierra has known him!!

    As silly as this quote is my favorite is when Denny and Griffin first meet and Griffin says “Ahoy Mate!” And Kellan laughs and says “Dude he is Australian… Not a pirate.”
    Cracks me up every time. Especially with books like these you need the comic relief

  104. A favorite scene of mine is in Thoughtless when Kellan tells Kiera that he can’t share her. “What if I don’t choose you, Kellan? What will you do?”
    He looked away, a tear rolling down his cheek. “I’ll leave, Kiera. I’ll leave, and you and Denny can have your happily ever after.” He looked back at me. “You wouldn’t even need to tell him about me. Eventually, the two of you…” his voice broke and another tear fell on his cheek, “the two of you would get married, and have children, and have a great life.”
    I fought back a sob. “And you? What happens to you in that scenario?”
    “I…get by. And I miss you, every day,” he whispered.”

    “Lifting my left hand with his left hand, he beamed at me. “There, now we’re married.”
    Tears in my eyes, I shook my head at him. “I’m pretty sure it doesn’t work like that, Kellan.”
    He shrugged. “Semantics.” Smiling softly, he placed my left hand over his heart, and his left hand over my heart. “We’re married…you’re my wife.” He nodded, staring at me intently.
    The tears streaming down my cheeks now, I nodded back. “And you’re my husband…”
    Exhaling with relief, he grabbed my face, sealing the deal with a heart-stopping kiss. I knew that our marriage wasn’t legitimate, but that was all a legal technicality that we could change whenever we wanted.”
    This is by far my absolute favorite series!

  154. I am new and an VERY EXCITED to get started….

  155. There are so many parts I love. I love the one Michelle posted above. I love when he leaves her all those notes. So I’ll pick a part I haven’t seen anyone quote yet.
    “Cupping his heeks that were slightly moist, like he splashed water on them, I searched his unique eyes. ‘Not being yours isn’t an option anymore,’ I whispered.”

  156. “But, if for some reason we’re not closer, if something has gotten between us, please, I’m begging you…don’t give up on me. Stay. Stay with me. Work it out with me. Just don’t leave me…please.”
    Effortless – S.C. Stephens

    This line always gets me (tear)

  157. “Loving you, Kellan, is so easy, it’s effortless.”

    His smile matched mine, then I frowned and sighed “Trusting you…that’s the hard part”

    Thoughtless: “What if I don’t choose you, Kellan? What will you do?”
    He looked away, a tear rolling down his cheek. “I’ll leave, Kiera. I’ll leave, and you and Denny can have your happily ever after.” He looked back at me. “You wouldn’t even need to tell him about me. Eventually, the two of you…” his voice broke and another tear fell on his cheek, “the two of you would get married, and have children, and have a great life.”
    I fought back a sob. “And you? What happens to you in that scenario?”
    “I…get by. And I miss you, every day,” he whispered.”

  197. “I need you. Let me do this. I can make you forget him. I can make you forget you.” -Thoughtless

  229. There’s so many to choose from!!!!! Ugh. Besides: “Mornin'” ~Kellan
    …..I think another of my favorites would be:“Don’t leave me,” I begged, when I found air to speak. Kellan wrapped his arms around me just as tight. Voice cracking he murmured, “I won’t…I’m yours, Kiera, for as long as you want me.” Pulling back I cupped his face. “Forever, I want you forever.”

    I am actually re reading “thoughtless” in perpetuation for “Reckless”.

  288. Fav quote…the letter

    I hid this one in the hopes that you would find it long
    after I’m gone. I hope you find this months from now, when I’m
    still out there, on the road, away from you. I can’t imagine what
    the time apart has done to us. I’m hoping we’re closer. I’m hoping
    we’re more in love than ever. I’m hoping that when I come back,
    you’ll move in with me. In all honesty, I’m hoping that when I come
    back you’ll agree to marry me someday. Because that’s what I want,
    what I dream about. You, mine, for the rest of my life. I hope you
    feel the same…because I don’t know what I would do without you. I
    love you so much. But, if for some reason we’re not closer, if
    something has gotten between us, please, I’m begging you…don’t give
    up on me. Stay. Stay with me. Work it out with me. Just don’t leave
    me…please.

  289. “You are told from the moment you enter school that time is constant. It never changes. It is one of those set things in life that you can always rely on… much like death and taxes. There will always be sixty seconds in a minute. There will always be sixty minutes in an hour. And there will always be twenty-four hours in a day. Time was not fluctuating. It moved on at the same, constant pace at every moment in your life. And that was the biggest load of crap that I’d ever been taught in school.”

  290. How about EVERY word of both books?! Or maybe this one from Thoughtless, “I get by, . . . and I miss you everyday” -Kellan

  291. “Cure for a heartache, I’m told”- Kellan Kyle. Though it was early on and brought its own share of heartaches, it was then that solidified that it IS Kellan and Keira and no one else. I cannot wait until Reckless comes out! Just the title alone has me preparing for more crazy emotional book times with my bbf KK:)

    I haven’t read this series yet, I am intrigued by the comments and brief synopses I’ve read.

  295. signed

  296. i so would love to have these.

  297. I really would love to read them because i read a sypnosis of each book and I knew it was going to be a lovely love story and with great characters

  298. One of my favorite quotes from Thoughtless is, “The love we felt for each other, while definitely never planned or expected, as I suppose most love isn’t, had irrevocably seared us both…to the core. It wouldn’t fade. It wouldn’t shift to another. It probably would’t always be easy…but it would always be…always.”

  299. I dont have a favorite quote but I do love the note he left hidden in the couch for her to find while he was on tour, I cried. :)

  300. From Effortless: “Dude! Denny, man! You have, like, fuck-tactic timing. Tonight’s my last show and Kiera and I were just-“….. “Relax, Kiera, I wasn’t going to tell him that you just blew me off.” My mouth dropped open; he’d just say that directly into the phone and it had sounded really, really bad. His hazy mind registering what he’d done, Kellan blinked and quickly covered with, “Oh, Denny, not that she actually blew me or anything, she didn’t, she doesn’t really hang out down there, if you know what I mean,” he paused to giggle, “and I guess you do, huh?”

    My Favorite Quote: “I always knew where your heart really was anyway. I never should have asked you to make a choice…there never was a choice to make. Last night, i did hope that…” this tore me to pieces..I LOVE this series and I LOVE KELLAN!!!

  302. I don’t have a favorite quote. I loved the books though and I’m so excited to read Reckless! Thanks for the giveaway!

  303. I Love these books!

  304. “-You finally get it. -Get what? -That I’m yours. That you can take me anywhere, anytime, anyway. That you own every piece of me..”

  305. “If I’m yours and you’re mine…then I will take you, wherever and whenever I can.”

  306. My favorite quote is short but so swoon worthy…

    “Mornin’.”

    Uhm… Ya!

  307. Man, I forgot to leave my favorite quote!!!

    “I wanted…to own you. I wanted a part of me in you.” He cringed. “I wanted to mark you, make you mine.”

    LOVE!!!!

  308. Super excited about Reckless on March 5!!

  309. “Loving you, Kellan, is so easy, it’s effortless.” “Trusting you…that’s the hard part.”
