Review: Untamed by S.C. Stephens

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...

5 Stars of Awesomeness

As someone who could barely stand Griffin throughout the Thoughtless Series, I was skeptical to say the least going into this one. BUT I -HAD- to read his story. A character with such personality and an ego that's larger than life, needs to be given a chance.

"I wasn't one to brag, but I had a good life. Screw that. I -was- one to brag and I was going to do it as often and as loudly as I could, because I had the greatest fucking life in all the history of great lives. Not many people could boast like I could boast. Not many people were in the most successful band in the world. Just me. Oh, and my bandmates. I guess. Whatever."

HOOKED! From the very first page, I knew Untamed was going to exceed my expectations and blow my mind. S.C. Stephens wrote the *bleep* out of Griffin's story! Turning this skeptic into someone who fell madly in love with his character speaks volumes, in my opinion, of how well Stephens mastered his story.
Umm...Kellan who?
No one can write a Douchebag D-Bag like she can!

Untamed encompasses every multifaceted layer of what makes Griffin...well, Griffin. "I had smarts. Smarts, skills, and looks. I was the whole package-a triple threat of awesomeness." Having the world in his hands to chasing the spotlight he so desperately craves and losing it all. Things always get worse before they get better - this is a story of self discovery, second chances, unconditional love and redemption. A true roller coaster ride in every sense. From his no holds bar sarcastic humor of awesomeness that will have you cracking up A LOT to the heart pounding, fingernail biting angst and the unexpected tears...OMG! This book has it all! A top read of 2015.

"...admitting I was flawed fucking sucked."
