Conversion (Conversion #1)
He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than mo ...more
Teren: is very sweet and gentleman like not alpha male controlling, but romantic and kindhearted, and still very sexy.
Emma: is very down to earth and normal. She is pretty and sweet but strong when she needs to be.
"Hey, boy, I missed you." I scratched him behind his ears. He thumped his tail and I could have sworn he smiled.
Teren sat up on the other side of him. "You missed the dog? Did you miss me?"
I shrugged my shoulders. "Maybe...a little."
He leaned o ...more
First, I found my casting for Teren!!!!!
** FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED ** 4.5 stars!!
Conversion is a sexy, thrilling and romantic twist on the traditional vampire story that I think will appeal to all fans of romance regardless of whether or not they are 'paranormal' readers. Teren Adams will make you SWOON!!!
*happy sigh* I seriously love this book!! I love Teren Adams. I love the story. I love the romance. I love Emma. I love their families. To be honest, I just love everything about it :)
A paranormal book written by S.C. Stephens? Count me in! Conversion is a great PNR. It is funny, sweet, sexy and exciting. Readers beware... you may fall in love with a new vampire named Teren Adams! I just had so much fun reading this one!
Emma lives a normal, simple life. She is single, working at a job she enjoys, and has a family she loves. One day while on a coffee run, she bumps into someone. Not just anyone, Teren Adams. Teren is handsome, successful and single as well. After E ...more
DNF at 64%.
So this is the story of Emma and Teren.
They crash into each other one day and from that day on things get heated and they start to fall for each other. Thing is: Teren is a “little bit” vampire.
And while that was a shock for Emma, that used to put vampire in the same box as “Santa Claus”, she eventually accepts Teren for who he is. Especially because “Hot” is one of those things he is.
But Teren isn’t telling everything (Yeah, there’s still more to tell than “I ...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 couldnt put it down. I cant decide if i should give this 4 or 5 stars but I loved it!
and i highly recommend it. It is a great book with a very sweet love story between a human and a vampire with a few surprising twists.
It will keep you entertainer from first to last page.
Conversion is the first book of a triology and i CA ...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.
My all time favourite book boyfriend:
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 really ...more
Being dropped into their relationship was off putting. I like to see a couple meet. Not hear about it as a reflection.
I liked Teren, and my heart went out to him, but I like my hero's a bit tougher. He was going through something really horrible, and I admired his independence and faith in himself. But he had a very bad habit of keeping important details to himself. I really dislike liars. And while I understand that his secrets were huge and he was scared, he only d ...more
I would like to start by saying that I love the Thoughtless series! And I really really wanted to like this one. Well... I did not. I forced myself to finish it so I could give a fair rating. There were many things in this book that did not work for me.
First of all I did not like the idea of "a little bit vampire". Are you or are you not?!?! After some reading we actually understand that he in fact a real vampire so what the hell was that in the beginning?!
Then, if my boyfriend tells me ...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

Fave line from the book- " I will drag your sleeping ass out into the sun, if you so much as drop a fang at my sister"- Emma in Conversion
Conversion totally took me by surprise it starts off slow, not even on a slow simmer just slow. And then i get closer to the end and it jump starts to life like a reviving heart. You don't even expect it, then BAM it kicks into high gear leaving the reader wondering how the he ...more
When Emma meets Teren, she feels like she finally found someone special. And 'special' he is. Sure, Teren is successful, smart, funny, sweet, and romantic, but he's also half-vampire. Surprisingly, Emma take ...more
I have to say that I’m a little disappointed with this book. I read the Thoughtless series and ABSOLUTELY loved it. Unfortunately this book was nowhere in the same spectrum as any of the books in the Thoughtless series. I didn’t like the attempt of it to be funny. I also didn’t like how Emma wasn’t in shock when Terren tells her he’s a vampire. I’m sorry but if my boyfriend of 1 month tells me that he’s a vampire then I’m running the other way FAR away from him. She was just n ...more

Conversion by S.C. Stephens was a suprise for me. I was not an S.C. Stephens fan after reading Thoughtless. I just can't make myself like cheaters.I was very skeptical about this series but I read some reviews and the synopsis and it sounded interested. I am so glad I gave this one a shot. The book started off hilarious to me! I was LOLing and then all of the sudden the book got serious and frankly turned a little bit weird for me. Once I got to the ending of the book everything came together an...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
It's cute and funny... romantic and different.
Read my Review of Conversion on my blog
Coffee, Books & Lipgloss
Not tension, no build-up, no nothing.
In the first chapter:
Go on a date.
Heroine pushes to have sex.
Heroine finds out the hero is part vampire.
They have sex.
They talk about family vampire history.
Side note: I feel that there should have been a THE END at the end of chapter 1.
I need and want tension and build-up in my romance stories especially in a paranormal romance. This was blah. The heroine was just too...ugh I can't even find the word.
I expect more from this author. Mu ...more
This book is not the typical paranormal vampire read, but has more of a humanistic approach to a vampire-human love story. Teren Adams is a beautiful stranger that Emma literally runs ...more
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would totally recommend this audiobook to a friend. Narrator, Piper Goodeve really animates the dense narrative of Emma and Teren's love story. I'm not sure if I would have loved it quite as much if I had read the e-book format especially since author, S.C. Stephens is a new-to-me author.
