Let me say this right now… I totally love Kellan and Kiera. I totally love the Thoughtless series.. and I have being waiting like forever for Effortless to come out so maybe my expectation were just a little bit too high.
Now. Review time.
This book picks up like right after book 2… like right after the bar wedding… in fact Kellan and Kiera are on their honeymoon. I must say, even the smex scenes in this book did not leave me gasping and covering my mouth like the other books did. I was soooo waiting for that too. The story was good… I mean it was just what you would expect for Kellan and Kiera’s relationship to evolve into. Plus I was so proud of Kiera for handling KelSex the way she did. So mature from Kiera’s previous personality. Great improvement, but I kind of wish old Kiera would have made an appearance and slapped Sextan around the bar one good time…. But she didn’t. The whole book I was waiting for that pinch in the heartstring feeling and it just didn’t come. So for me… I totally love the story…but it was like one huge epilogue for the first two books. It kind of just finalizes everything. Well I take that back… only one drama filled scene happen right at the end…but it was over and done then everything summed up nicely. If you’re a fan of this series by all means… get this book and listen and enjoy. Just don’t expect your toes to curl like it did with book 1 and 2, this will just round out the series for you.
Narration was great as usual.
Good buy if you’re a fan/ good credit if you’re just getting started.
I like Dawe narration for something like historical romances.... not this. Joya Ryan is this extremely intense writer...rather the characters go through emotional roller coasters, which makes the readers feel this intense connection with them. So the narration has to pull those emotions out by small inflections, accents, crescendo, whispers, moans and such while reading. If the emotional parts are done at the wrong time...well it make the book sound like something it is not...
From Dawe's narration I felt like this read like a 18th century romance stuck in 2014 NY.... completely wrong...
That being said...I actually like Dawe narration...just in the right time period...lol....anyway...this story is really good...kinda on the lines of book1... could be a great emotional read that is expected from Ryan...if the narration was changed...
Also...I must say, the female lead come off as a totally byotch, at times with way to much pride who couldn't humble herself...but then in the same breath, she was completely defenseless.... not the same strong willed character from book1... and I think it's because of how she was narrated... and the Governor...what happen to him...no pity at all...
I just can't recommend this for narration....but if the narration was changed...mos definitely a buy, credit, or sale...
This was an awesome second book... I really like that Tru and Kasper was in this too... their POVs... was good to hear after book 1.
Now Mathias.... Ok... I love the fact his girl is a new chick... not one of the girls from the Defiance MC... but the VP daughter... what a stretch there...
This book was good... but I think it had far less action, suspense and overall smexyness that book 1 had. I am looking forward to Bishops book... Hope he is next!
Totally worth a credit, buy or sale. Especially if you have book 1.
Narration was great... same as book 1, so all the characters voices sounds the exact same... Kudos Taylor!
I have never fell in love with a writer so fast!!! OMG!!!! This is only my second Leo book... and WOW... that is all I can say about this book... I cannot hardly wait to read/listen to Unmasked VOL 2... The whole dark romance was awesome...but the end... OMG! WOW... then the fruit in the fridge... OMG!!! I knew it!!!! Seriously... 2 hours has got me hook!!! This was simply awesome!!! One of the best dark romances I have read/listen to an a long time...
Good Narration... if fact it was awesome!!!
Good buy or sale... no need for a credit as it is so cheap!
I really enjoyed this!
Wow... what a crazy ride...of the next presidential candidate having an affair with an escort... that turns into love... I really liked it though.... this was my first Leo book... hopeful not my last...
Good sale or buy... pretty cheap...save your credit.
This was an awesome story of a girl becoming a true submissive. I really liked it. This is BDSM through and through.. A really in-depth look into the world... with a romance story at it's center...
I am half-way through... and I am hoping Brie and Sir become a couple!!! But Tome'... O My GOSH!
Well worthy listen...
Good Credit, Buy or Sale!
I am so pissed right now! I cannot believe the second book isn't out... What a freaking cliffhanger! Urgh!!!! I hate listening to an awesome book that has me so involved then Whamp!!! Cliffhanger....
And the Cliffhanger in this one... OMG!!! Seriously.... Second book.... Instant Download!!!
X is superstar wrestler from extremely bad origins... but he meets the sweetness thing on an airplane and their romance/friendship start from there. I totally enjoyed all the sweet moments between these too... I am actually glad they moved from friends to serious so quickly... it kept the story going.... I feel like it would have start dragging if they angst played out for too long... But the ending...OMG! I can not believe the story just ended like that... Seriously!!!!
Good Narration... I am not one for dual narration...but I was still worth a good listen.
Good credit or sale....maybe not a buy!
This was a good biker story... There is always a level of violence or use of distasteful words with these biker romance novels. It is almost needed... if a female is not called by some awful name at least once... I think it would take away from the bad-ass-ness of the bikers!
Anyway this story was great... with all the action. The (H) and (h) are great characters, and the secondary characters really are good too.. They have major roles in the story between the main characters... The ending!!!!! OMG!!!!!! What a shocker!!! Didn't see that coming.... I like it, but I soooo didn't!!!
Good Narration...but really is dual narration really needed.. I love the female narration is this... and I love the male narration equally...but together....eh! not so much... It just wasn't needed...
Good credit or sale...maybe not a buy.... pricey!
What an awesome story!
This book was great. A classic teacher-student story. But it was written so.... IDK.... differently. First you start in the present and the (h) is in a hospital of some sort for going crazy... but then it drift back to the past. The story of the student and the teacher repeats this back and forth present and past type of telling throughout the story until the end.
I quite enjoyed it.. It brought a level of suspense to the story, b/c what I totally thought happen to the (H) by the end, was not so.... So I was pleasantly surprised by the end.
Great narration. Very much like the male voices.
Good Credit, Buy or Sale.... So worth it.
I am literally hanging on every single word of these books! I love them... This is one interesting story... and every single volume throws something new at you.. I loved it.. This is dark romance... and I mean dark... When Lilly peeks through the window, OMG! I was so pissed at Stoneheart...why does he need Lilly if he's got dizzy lil secretary...
Woah! Just Woah!
Narration was great... This is such a buy book.. don't waste a credit on this, as it so cheap... But if it was more expensive then yes.. Credit, Buy or Sale.
This was so not on the same level as book 1, but it was still a great book. I like it... The smexy time was good...but like I said, not on the same level as book 1. This story is like 2yrs later from book 1, and the (h) is a lawyer being blackmailed by her boss after he tried to seduce her. In comes Jake or the (H)... and when these two get back together... of course sparks begin to fly. We get gym action, and whole lot of conversation...but it's still missing that something.. that book 1 had.. I hope book 3 raises the bar back up!
Narration was good... actually if the narration wasn't as good as it was... I think this book would have been a book 2 filler flop!
Good credit or sale.. Maybe not a buy...
