Effortless is one of those books that once you start reading it, you just flat out won’t be able to put it down until the very end. This story takes off about a year later, when the first one ended. Kiera and Kellan are now a couple, officially. Kellan’s career has only started to take off, and he had to go to LA to record their first album. Now you find out that when you start your relationship based on betraying another, you are going to face some major trust issues when you aren’t together. Like the original story, Kiera still struggles heavily with self-esteem issues, which plays a large part in her problem with trusting Kellan’s love for her and his ability to stay faithful. Kellan loves Kiera, but there is one area that he worries about, and that is Denny.
This is the second book is a must-read trilogy. I loved it. I really did. Many people were hard on Kiera for being such a dumb ass and continuing to make stupid decisions, but to me, that made the story all the more believable. People aren’t perfect, and as much as we would all love to say we would always do the right thing, we know we don’t. People make mistakes and stupid decisions, and Kiera is no different. That makes her human and more realistic to me.
Seriously why are you still reading my ramblings? Go get this book.
Buy it. This is a book, like all those in this series, had that re-readability factor.
