Being the bad-boy bassist for the world's hottest band has earned Griffin Hancock some perks: The one thing it hasn't brought him is the spotlight. Anna tells him to be patient, but he's tired of waiting. Griffin is no longer waiting for permission to shine. Without warning, Griffin makes a shocking decision and takes the gamble of a lifetime.
In the end, I absolutely loved Griffin! Yes, loved him so hard and was cheering for him. I was completely behind him and wanted his success so much that I stayed up reading late into the early morning.
I loved how Stephens gave us a new story line that was unique to Griffin and Anna.
I loved the concept and was completely engaged. Griffin with his family and the time with Anna and his girls was priceless, swoon worthy and real. I loved how Griffin learned to appreciate the people and opportunities he has been given, but he still remained true to his character.
He was still highly sexual, vulgar and hilarious.
I also loved that Anna was his absolute perfect match. She understood Griffin and wanted the same things. She loved Griffin for who he was, not what he did or what he could give her. This story felt more real to me than most stories I read. I loved this story and highly recommend it. I will warn you that Griffin will test your patience, but he is worth loving and believing in.

Oct 24, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Kellan fans need to step aside because Griffin "the bass player of the D Bags" has his own story to tell. D Bags fans will be swept away by Griffin's fall from fame and his tenacity to climb his way back to the top!
Griffin has always been the fun loving "asshole" of the group. He just exudes confidence and cockiness. Many may find his demeanor to be abrasive at best, and yet, I am a true fan. I have great admiration for a person that is unashamed to be who they are. Although Griffin's confidence grew past cute and into the "annoying zone", it was still an entertaining journey to say the least. He longs for a shot to sing lead, play lead guitar, just anything lead. The only problem with this scenario is that Griffin's band mates aren't quite on board with giving him the glory he so badly deserves.
Insert sarcasm here! After not getting the attention he so rightly deserves, Griffin leaves the band and heads off on his own to became a "the true super star" he was meant to be insert more sarcasm here. However, when the mighty fall it's a long and hard. When the dust settles, what will be left for our cocky hero to cling to? Will Anna remain by his side when she comes to terms with what he has done? I did now. The pacing was steady and yet, an exorbitant amount of time was spent on Griffin's need to be the "biggest and the best".
I personally enjoyed his outlandish personality and paired with his spunky wife Anna, I was throughly entertained. The story is written in Griffin's POV so there were plenty of smiles, sighs, eye rolling, and even some "come on" moments. There were moments when I truly sympathized with him. His character, albeit unique, was well developed and quite complex! The transformation Griffin makes is extreme and I found it to be a very poignant story of redemption!
I think to truly appreciate this read you must be a forgiving person who embraces the flaws in other people! He is uncut, uncensored, and raw! I had nothing. Stephens' writing! The details in the text are rich with vibrance and you are truly transported through each moment effortlessly! Untamed is a story of a man coming to finding himself. He is forced to examine his roles as a father, husband, musician, brother, son, and friend! Although Griffin is no Kellan Kyle, I found him to be equally as intriguing as a character.
Anna Hancock Forever only scratches the surface of how long I'll love you. I truly enjoyed the sarcastic wit of the main characters, the extravagant sexual exploits of Griffin and his wife, and the undeniable friction of an individual growing up. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this read to anyone looking for a good laugh with some steamy sex! Just be prepared because it's a long and rocky road!
However, it is well worth the trip! I look forward to more from the D-Bags and their endeavors to rule the rock world! May 22, Jacqueline's Reads rated it really liked it Shelves: I was adamant against cheating. As much as I loved Kellan, the cheating gutted me. I feel like now, I have mature and my reading taste has changed. I loved Griffin from the Thoughtless books. I craved him.
He made me smile, laugh and is antics totally cut the crazy tension in the books. Untamed is the 4th book in the Thoughtless series.
Untamed begins where Reckless left off. Griffin is the bass player for the number one rock band D-bags. I love the beginning of Untamed. It beings with how Griffin sees life, with his wife, child and bandmates. His love for Ann completely had me in this book. He sees nothing but this woman and it will make your heart swoon, sigh and faint. I want my own rocker man now!
Griffin sees himself only on the sidelines and he craves fame deeply. He believes he has waited long enough and is urging his bandmates to let him lead in the spotlight.
I felt all of his inner emotions, pain and torment. I forget that SC Stephens writes angsty books and it had me pulling my hair out. But I love the writing style does that make sense?
I was consumed by his madness and I read this huge book in one sitting! This book will put you in an up and down roller coaster of emotions. You will want to slap, punch the Hero, but also fall in love with him at the same time. This book is for the fans, absolutely. I highly recommend. I feel like this book was written for the fans. For all of us D-Bags groupies, this treat of a book is not only about the romantic story between Griffin and Anna but a tribute to all the guys in this wonderful band.
You know, when I was reading The Thoughtless series I loved Griffin's character, he definitely added the humor to a very angsty story but in my mind I thought his personality was mostly an act, just him trying to be the class clown kind of guy. But as I read Untamed I realized that Griffin really believes he is God's best creation and that he was put in this world as a gift for all humanity, and so I spent half of the book laughing out loud at his crazy antics and the other half wanting to reach inside the story to strangle him.
Untamed is nothing short of a good time. I gotta say how much I loved Anna in this book, you see a totally different girl from the one we met in previous books. Motherhood has really made her mature but definitely always keeping her edge. Her love for her husband was completely unconditional and it was a thing of beauty. Anna's love for her family had no bounds and I was so impressed by her character.
She was the calm before the storm that is Griffin. This book is all about Griffin's struggles as he comes to realize his mistakes and mostly his selfishness toward his band mates and family. For most of the book you do see how much he loves Anna and his friends and family but he has a hard time when it comes to expressing his feelings.
I think my favorite thing about this book was to read about what a wonderful yet unconventional father Griffin was.
It was equal parts of adorable and entertaining. Be ready to laugh and be blinded by the stars of all rock themed book series ever, The D-Bags are back baby!!!!
My Untamed music playlist: View all 35 comments. He is the constant life of the party. Nothing is too serious. Hurling lewd insults at whomever is near, taking pleasure whenever he wants, he is a rockstar!
One chance…one moment is all he wants to own a place in the spotlight. But how deserving is the man whose actions are nev 3. But how deserving is the man whose actions are never careful…whose work ethic is absent…whose personality is obnoxious at best?
No one ever said Griffin Hancock was tame. One snap decision and lives are altered. This is one of those reads that I would love to split into part one and part two and review seperately.
Trying to convince the world of your abilities? His only saving grace was his love of Anna and his girls…it was his only redeeming trait! Lie after lie…insult after insult it was difficult to read as he burned bridges at every corner. While it was a bit sad to see a brazen man fall…it was also a bit satisfying and somewhat beautiful to watch a man finally grow up! I applaud S. With humble actions and heartfelt emotions, she brought a man back to his humanity…back to his beginnings.
The second half of the book was simply feel-good awesomeness. I loved the true love and respect between a husband and a wife, camaraderie and admiration amongst friends, and complete redemption of a man. It was not an easy or pretty read, but in the end it was satisfying. Anna Hancock is brass balls amazing. She owned the story for me just as she owned Griffin. Together, Anna and Griffin made the angst, made the heat, and made the love story proper.

When opportunity knocked he jumped on it without much thought. Blinded by his quest for ultimate greatness, he risked everything that was ever important to his life. Griffin is my second favorite character in the T Genre: Griffin is my second favorite character in the Thoughtless series. I was both apprehensive and ecstatic to read this one, and in the end I did like his book. I was such a good lay, even I wanted to sleep with me.
In the previous book, when we got to see it in bits and pieces, it was highly amusing. Just once, I want to shine. From that point I rooted for him and yes, forgave him. She stood taller, prouder, and even though she was smaller than me, I suddenly felt dwarfed by her presence. I never really liked Anna before, but like Griffin, she grew up.
She was the voice of reason behind his uncontrollable antics and both of them really complement each other as a couple. I like the direction the story went because it fit Griffin perfectly. And I love how the other band members and their significant others played a big part in shaping his life. Untamed is a journey of the rise and fall of a rockstar. It takes you through a whole cycle of emotions of joy, heartbreak and everything in between.
Books in the series: Stephens did it again. She left me breathless. With ' Untamed' , she had me laughing, fuming, sad, heartbroken and finally joyous.
And oh, what a story it is. If self-absorbed, immature, liars, who refuse to accept responsibility for themselves and their actions is a problem for you If go-all-in, let's have fun-life is a p S.
If go-all-in, let's have fun-life is a party, let me treat you like the queen you are, men - who love to a fault, and are totally obsessed fathers, and completely and totally in love with one woman Let's just say, Anna is a saint!
And Stephens is brilliant. She maintained Griffin's character throughout the entirety of 'Untamed'. Never once wavering from who he is at his core, even as he grew up and transformed, he was still "Griffin". From the immature, cocky, confident, self-absorbed man, to the self-actualized adult, Griffin never fails to entertain.
You can't help but love him. The way he is with Anna and his daughters - - - it is heart-meltingly good! Proving he is worthy of being loved and supported. It's fine to leave her with an underage stranger. And as he struggles with this realization, he is forced to realize his view of "team" was skewed.
And likewise, he spent so much time worrying about what was "owed to him" that he failed to see what was important - his "family". And it was his family in the end that saved him. His sister Chelsey was supportive and wise, offering tidbits of wisdom that left him food for thought on his dark days. And while you're doing it, you try to remember WHY you're doing it, so you can attempt to get through each day with as much of your sanity intact as possible.
She was strong and centered. Exactly what Griffin needed. While she loved to have fun and be spontaneous, she lived her life with her eyes wide open.
Aware of life around her, she was one smart cookie! Except where Griffin was concerned. Anna, too loved with her whole heart, which allowed her to not see the warning signs when Griffin was in trouble.
I loved that she was not a doormat. She knew she needed to make decisions based on her children and herself. And in doing so, she forced Griffin's hand. Gibson - that girl is a hoot! I want to read her book as an adult! Stephens did Griffin and Anna's story justice. A story about second chances, redemption, acceptance, and unconditional love, you can't help but to finish reading with a smile on your face and a warm heart.
I compiled a playlist of songs I felt represented their story. If you didn't already know, in Spotify you can view the lyrics while you listen. This option is on the lower right hand corner. My Playlist for Untamed I hope you enjoy their story, and I hope you will let me know which songs this book inspired for you.
Feb 22, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: I received a paper copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis.
Thanks to Little Brown Book Group. He is the talent, my ass. Griffin was never my favourite cha Source: He was rude, crude, selfish, and had no idea the consequences of his actions.
I mean really?! He totally screwed things up though, as expected, and drove everyone who cared for him away, and it was easy to see why when you considered the things he was doing. Now it's finally Griffin's time to be the star Griff and Anna's daughter Gibson is about 18 months old now and the band is about to go on tour again.
But Griffin - he doesn't want to be the bass-player in the background anymore. He wants to be a star! He's always known that he's too awesome to just be a guy in a band - he wants to be the STAR! When I first joined the D-Bags a few years ago, I had been under the completely logical assumption that once my overall awesomeness was known, I would replace my cousin as the lead guitarist.
He's had it with those guys Nobody put the Hulk in the corner. Perfect timing for Hollywood to come knocking. Griff packs up his wife and kids and leaves for La-La-Land. And gues what???? He's sooooo amazing! I'm such a huge KellanKyle fan aka his number one fan!!! But he's so much more. And he's so humble too!!!! God, that guy! He's just sooo adorable! I didn't really know what to expect when I started reading. We all know THE HULK - we also saw tiny glimpses of a guy with feelings in the other books, but we never read about what he thinks and feels.
And it's so beautiful. Well, not really, mostly we just want to grab him and shake him and hit him and grrrrr. But there are sooo many amazingly moving moments in this book. I cried so much with and for Griffin - and I even hated a tiny little bit on all the other D-Bags here and there. Matt gave me a dumbfounded look, like I was missing something obvious.
I hated that look. It made me feel stupid, and I wasn't. And the moments that are not full of emotions - we just have to laugh about that poor guy. I have no idea how one guy can think so much awesome thoughts about himself. I was constantly shaking my head at his awesomeness. I had smarts. I was the whole package - a triple threat of awesomeness. He says so many thinks that made me cry though Just once, I'd like people to notice me, ya know? I want I just want a chance.
His total awesomeness hides this whole vulnerable side of him.
And it's really hard for him to let other people see that side. But maybe by the end of the book he'll get there He has his sister, who listens to him and tries to help - and he has Anna and his daughters This was just the perfect Rockstar Romance - full of feels and laughter and sexy-times!!!
Griffin really deserved to have his story told. It's never too late to grow up. View all 5 comments. Feb 26, Natasha is a Book Junkie marked it as to-read. Have you seen this bad boy?!?!? View all 4 comments.
Jan 09, Natalie rated it it was ok Shelves: This book in a gif: I'm so disappointed. Yes, in those books he's a bit of a dick and he would say things to annoy them, but he wasn't this bad.

He'd say and do things to upset the people around him, and end up being stuck and alone with only himself to blame. His ego was massive, he was attention-seeking, fame hungry and was so me me me all the time. Dude - you're a father! Fucking act like one. I hate people like this, so it's natural that I disliked him in this book.
I tried not to hate him, but I did. Griffin in the end fucking things up so bad that he finally realised what a fucking idiot he is. His decisions were awful, he'd not listen to anyone who cared about him and make such poor judgments. During this whole book, my face was pretty much like this like, seriously mate. What is wrong with you? And the amount of lies he told Anna was fucking ridiculous.
The thing about Griffin in the Thoughtless books is that he's very honest, which is why he always puts his foot in his mouth, but it's always harmless stuff. Stuff people could laugh about and forget. It got boring really fast.
And the amount of times the word 'awesome' was used. Just like to point out - there's no cheating in this book, in case you're wondering.
It is Griffin, after all He screwed up his future, the band, and everything for his wife and children. He really went too far, and it was his own fault. Not him, but this new him. Urgh, I don't like him at all.
I don't want to spoil it too much, but it was as if the reverse button was pushed and he turned into fucking Mother Theresa. He even started a fucking charity!
And don't get me started on all the other characters. Kellan and Evan had no opinions on anything which is unlike Kellan , Kiera was this wise old Dumbledore, Anna was a doormat who had no backbone and just had sex with Griffin and was a baby-machine. Griffin's family were uninteresting and the rest of the characters were unimportant. Le sigh I also think the story was pointless. I don't understand what we're supposed to get from this?
It started with them as the D-Bags and ended the same, only with people respecting Griffin less and them having more children.
It's not really done anything for the Thoughtless-verse at all, and I would have preferred the series to have ended where the Reckless epilogue finished. I adore the Reckless epilogue, it's so cute and sweet, and a perfect ending to the story. This epilogue? I did, but even I was like 'alright So much pairing off and trying too hard to make sure everyone is happy.
We know they're happy, no need to beat it over our heads. So yes, I'm quite disappointed with this book. It's not at all what I wanted or expected, and I hate to say this, but I won't be re-reading this one. I will be re-reading and re-listening to the other books though because I love the series. Just not impressed with this one.
I'm sorry. I can't wait to read his book.

How long it will take Griffin to notice, that his dream of rising may well be his fall? To be honest, I was afraid of reading this book. Between the angst fest that was the first three books and the background story of Anna and Griffin, I had some reasons to be hesitant. Anna definitely made this book for me, she was loyal and fierce and she fought her ground.
Griffin pissed me off during a good part of the book, but eventually he taught us a lesson of humility and earning a second chance. Overall, a good book especially if you like the previous one in the series. Sensible Subjects: View 1 comment. Oct 12, K. Linde rated it it was amazing. She did it again! Knocked it out of the park! Feb 16, NinaReader rated it really liked it. I mean Griffin! I figured it'd be all fun and games with lots of Griffin cocky-isms but it was so much more.
Though there were plenty of typical Griffin antics, there's also a serious tone. For Griffin the lessons were hard learned and harder earned. They say there's only one way to go when you're at the top and that is 4.
They say there's only one way to go when you're at the top and that is down and in true Griffin style, he plummets at super sonic speed. His fame, his wife and kids, his unbelievable over inflated ego, his downfall and his struggle to climb back up. And it's a hell of a ride. I really don't think that Griffin's story could have been better written.
Stephens writing a book entirely in Griffin's POV is eye opening-ly masterful. Then reality hits and the spiral down begins. And let me tell you that my feelings of frustration was overwhelming. I wanted to smack him and shake him! Because even though I understood him better at the same time I also understood his many flaws. And when Griffin hits rock bottom is something to behold.
It's humbling and this is where the story took a turn for me and when I felt emotions for Griffin that I never thought I'd feel. I loved this part of the book because it surprised me. It was hard lessons and humbleness and heartbreak and ultimately perseverance and I was absolutely glued to my ereader! What was surprisingly sweet and the one aspect of Griffin's feelings that I never questioned was his love for his girls.
We saw just how much he felt for Anna and the kids and it was really endearing. And even though I was never interested in Griffin's sex life - I actually found them really hot together.
They really are a great match. They had an understanding of each other that only got better and stronger by the end. It was nice to catch up to Kellan as endearing and gorgeous but also gracious as ever and Kiera plays a small but very pivotal part and I just adorned them.
We see what Matt and Evan's been up to. As well as a lot of the characters from the rest of the series. By the end, Griffin had come full circle. His journey from having it all, to falling, to persevering, to appreciating his life made a great story.
A story that surprised me in it's sincerity and depth! View all 36 comments. Feb 23, Christine Shh Moms Reading added it.
Unfortunately being in his head didn't work for me as he was conceited and over the top too much.
I wanted to love him, but I just didn't and often times found myself holding my breath at what would come out of his mouth next. I adore SC Stephens..

Mar 01, rheeza rated it liked it Shelves: My heart literally feels like it has been torn in half over this book - and particularly torn in half over my opinion of the characters. Talk about being put through the ringer.
Thoughtless is definitely one of them. So why was I so excited to read Untamed , the 4th book in the series? One reason. Being one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends, I couldn't pass on the chance to read about him even though he is not the main MC. And besides, even though Griffin had been an obnoxious asshole in the previous book, I am interested to see deeper in the heart of that persona.
And boy did S. Stephens able to draw readers into the inner psyche of Griffin. And I have to say this Honestly, he was the most self-absorbed , selfish and insensitive character ever!
I knew nothing good will come out of his egotistical and brash actions. I feel so angry, helpless and anxious! My emotions were driving me mad! I shouldn't sympathize with him because all the things that happen to him, all the unhappiness he experiences are his own doing, but I DID.
I knew his actions had to catch up with him eventually but I still wanted a happy ending for him because he is not a bad person, just someone who made stupid decisions. I felt terrible for him. At times, I just wanted to shake him and at others, I just wanted to hug him. When he started to realized his mistakes it was too late. He already lost everything. But he tried to redeem himself. He started to be more responsible. 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 Review: I have mixed feelings about this book. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't like the first four books. I love the series, I love Kellan Kyle's character in this book too. I didn't like Griffin in the first four book, but I was curious about his story.
So I bought this book. But I'm happy I didn't do it! He thought being in a band was fun, and not work. He wanted more. Then he moved on, wanted his own carrier, but he was so so stupid! It was like a comedy, but I was curious!
