Book Review: Untamed by S. C. Stephens

#1 New York Times bestselling author S.C. Stephens brings us the next book in her Thoughtless series!

The spotlight doesn't only shine. Sometimes it burns.

Being the bad-boy bassist for the world's hottest band has earned Griffin Hancock some perks: a big house, a fast car, and most importantly his incredible wife, Anna. The one thing it hasn't brought him is the spotlight. Anna tells him to be patient, that his talent will win out. But Griffin is through waiting for permission to shine.

Without warning, Griffin makes a shocking decision and takes the gamble of a lifetime. Suddenly he's caught up in a new level of lights, cameras, and chaos. One that pushes his relationship with Anna to its limits. Anna has always found his unpredictable behavior sexy, but lately he's seen an ache in her eyes--and it has his soul in knots. Just as the recognition Griffin seeks is finally within reach, the thing he loves most in life could be slipping through his fingers...


I read the first three books in this series in January 2013. Then earlier this year Stephens published the first book from Kellan's POV and I loved it, so it was only a given I would read the next book that's about a completely different character. In fact this one isn't about falling in love at all, it's more about finding yourself.

If Kellan was the star of the band, Griffin was the rock his mind. This guy was delusional and OMG I got to about 30% and almost gave up because he just didn't have a clue about real life and how lucky he was to be in a rock band.

I'm so glad I stuck it out because even though his relationships get rocky, he really learns a lot about himself and life in general. If you can make it through the nauseating selfish, self-centered, cocky rock and roll star you're in for a really good story that Stephens has woven around this rock star. It was awesome to see his growth and how far he came from the beginning of the book.

Don't forget tomorrow is Show Us Your Books with Steph and Jana!!

  3. I don't think i have read the others in this series. I am glad he redeemed himself because he sounds like an a$$. I might be too frustrated to push through that one.
