Conversion (Conversion #1)
Emma is happy. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her social life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate stepped in, and crashed her into a tall, dark and handsome man. Sure, he has his secrets...don't we all, and, yeah, maybe his secrets are a little more...more
I am so much in love with S C Stephens right now! Another wonderful book
from this author. I started to read this book sincw i was bored but soon i was hocked in it and couldn´t put it down. I can´t decide if i should give this 4 or 5 stars but I loved it! and i highly recommend it. It is a grear book with a very sweet love story between a human and a vampire with a few surprising twists. It will keep you entertimed from first to last page.
Conversion is the first book of a triology and i CANNOT...more
My all time favourite book boyfriend:
My old review:
If you like paranormal stories and enjoyed S.C. Stephens's style of writing before, you will love this book. Instead of writing whole book about how two main characters get together, author focuses mainly on already working relationship between Emma and Teren and problems during actual relationship. I rea...more
I Got about 50% in & most of that was skimming. My biggest problem was that the couple got together & into bed by the end of the 1st chapter :( No tension, no build up, no real romance or anything...nothing to keep my interest. We know from the blurb that he is a vampire so no big reveal there.
Don't get me wrong I LOVE PNR's & I also loved Stephens' Thoughtless series. But this just didn't work for me.
I love her storylines because they're different, they talk about lots of things that have been written about bef...more
I found this book so incredibly boring it’s almost difficult to write an actual review. Part of my problem with Conversion is I read the Thoughtless Series first and really expected that same level of storytelling. This fell so far short of being anywhere close to the same level as Thoughtless.
Let’s pretend that I don’t know S.C. Stephens is an amazing writer who is capable of developing characters worth reading about and just look at this...more
Emma works as a executive administrative assistant’s assistant at a local accounting firm. Long job-title aside, she basically serves as the secretary's secretary - and you thought you had it bad - and lives her days on monotonous rewind, until she stumbles (literally) upon vampire Teren...more
Good story idea, but so far the execution of it is a little boring. Probably the most un-intense vampire I've ever read. He's more like Denny from her Thoughtless series than he is like Kellan. Now, Kellan as a vampire? That would be awesome! Oh wait, Adrian Phoenix sorta already wrote him in her Maker's Song series (Dante). I really hope this book gets better.
Okay, done . . .
and the last 20% of the book saved it from being 3 stars. 'Cause, seriously, so much could ha...more
With all of the environmental and social problems confronting our food systems today, it is apparent that none of the strategies we have relied on in the past―higher-yielding varieties, increased irrigation, inorganic fertilizers, pest damage reduction―can be counted on to come to the rescue. In fact, these solutions are now part of the problem. It is becoming quite clear that the only way to keep the food crisis from escalating is to promote the conversion processes that will move agriculture t...more
So I tried my hand at this book again to see if I was being too harsh with three stars, sometimes all it takes is a second read. Now that I’ve read it again I understood why this book’s rating in my opinion will never decrease or increase.
Emma bumps into Teren Adams and spills her coffee on him. Things take the turn for the better when the gorgeous guy asks her out. She soon finds out that Teren is a Vampire - well a sort of vampire since he’s more human. Things are fast paced when she meets his...more
It would be slightly creepy to find that your boyfriend's mother looks younger than you and then her mother looks the same but the great grandmother looks even younger. I thought Halini was a hoot!
the attack on Teren and Emma was scary to read and completely sent chills down my spine... I was cheering Emma when she decided to 'fake' being bitten.. clever
Gut wrenching and heart broken when Teren refused to drai...more
This is a sweet (very sweet) love story. Her take on the vampire history is interesting & that held my attention as to what will happen. She's very descriptive. So much so sometimes I found myself skipping over some of it.
Emma kinda got on my nerves sometimes. The constant "I smacked his arm, I smacked his chest, I smacked him roughy" all the smacking was way over done & had me rolling my eyes. I kept wanting...more
5 stelline? Perché 5? Perché non ce ne sono 6 o 7 o 8. Avrei dato il massimo comunque.
Questo va dritto dritto nella classifica dei libri consigliatissimi.
C'è tutto quello che amo in un libro: il realismo, l'amore, i litigi, la freschezza di non annoiarsi mai e soprattutto... l'ironia.
Entrare nella mente di Emma è come bere una boccata d'aria fresca. No...more
It's no surprise that I once again like the male character over the female one. It's probably because they try so hard to be something better for the woman they've set their sights on, yet the women always come across as overbearing. I can appreciate a heal...more
I loved how the story unfolds from how she bumps into him to how she stands up to his great grandmother and holds her own quite well.
This is a story I know I will read over and over again. Both Emma and Teren have their own issues (his overbearing family and her scarred sister)... but the family love is played well and when each meets the others fami...more

The pitfalls and joys of dating a "sort-of" vampire had me enthralled, and really looking forward to the next two books in the series. Emma was a quirky heroine, who took the news of her new boyfriend's fangs better than anyone expected. Teren was a phenomenal hero, and totally made my best heroes list even though he wasn't a raging beast of an alpha. He was just sweet and lo...more
There were a couple of minor grammatical errors - "startled" instead of "started," "teethed" instead of "toothed," but they didn't take away too much from the story (I just happen to notice those things and then have the intense urge to get out a red ink pen and correct them!). The extra space between the paragraphs did bother me,...more
For a vampire book this is really pretty good. I really liked that the strong character in the book is NOT the vampire! I loved Emma's sarcasm...which is a language that I am completely fluent in. I really liked the way that she thinks. The storyline keeps you interested through the end.
On a separate note...I am not really a vampire book fan (aside from Twilight that is...and really only the 1st book is in my love column). I wish that you could download the Conversion...more
I really struggled with the beginning of this book. You are thrown in to this relationship with her Vampire boyfriend from the first page. I felt I didn't really get to really know much about the main couple as individuals, and what made them tick until the last half. I also found it distractingly descriptive. It got to the point where I was skimming through these pages just to get back in the story.
On the whole though it was an interesting s...more
However at the middle of the book, when I was halfway I started to get bored .
I don't know if it was the constant flooding of days where nothing seemed to happen or that it was summer and my head was already melted but I had to put it down ...for a while.
Finally 2 months later with the summer and its high temperatures going down I was able to go on reading, gave it a la...more
Her first attempt at a full-length novel was Thoughtless. She wrote the angst-filled love triangle in early 2009 and published it that summer on FictionPress. Amazed and surprised by the response, more stories were quick to follow.
