    Story
    "Disclaimer; I am not age appropriate for this book"

    This is like a soap opera. You can skip more than one chapter&you won't have missed a thing. What have women for generations work toward for these types of girls. There wasn't a real woman in the entire story.
    It's all about her immature, needy, silly "relationship".
    It's all about the sex.
    It's all about her unending list of insecurities& his.
    Back and forth, back and forth just like high school.
    3 downloads of too much meaningless sex, silly emotionally outbursts, a girl that has no self awareness at all. In the language of girls....whatever.
    The production quality isn't the best on either of these books.
    I take responsibility for purchasing these books. But Audible if you want to keep me as a customer you are going to have to figure a rating system so I do not unknowingly purchase these books that are meant for...well, in my opinion no one.
    I love a good romance but I do require a story other than 3 downloads of this girl who has no story except her fears about what her boyfriend is doing. If this is a trend in romance I may have to go to non-fiction.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "The ride continues!!!"

    BEFORE:
    I anxiously download and continue the saga of Kiera and Kellan. What is the author going to take me through this time? Will Kiera make juvenile mistakes over and over again? Will Kellan be the one who screws things up? I haven’t even started the book yet and I’m tied in knots. You’ve just got to love an author that rates this kind emotion from her writing.

    AFTER:
    Kellan has got an opportunity for a 6 month tour. Finally his dream is coming true. There’s just the problem of leaving Kiera. Kellan is so worried Kiera will cheat on him, like she did on Denny. Kellan thinks Kiera will not be able to be alone. Kiera is afraid Kellan won’t be able to keep his hands off all those women that throw themselves at him; after all he is a man whore. Will their love survive? Can it survive the test of being apart for 6 months with all those insecurities that Kiera and Kellan have to deal with?

    As they go through these times I’m all tensed up. Please do the right thing this time. Of course, nobody does what they should do, but never mind because that’s what makes it so good, and it is so good. In fact it’s so good I’m getting the next book!! The books in this series are mild in the sexual content. The first one and this one are very good and I believe worth the credit or purchase price.

    "Not Effortless"
    What disappointed you about Effortless?

    The reader is not very good and to be honest the characters are not interesting at all.


    What was most disappointing about S. C. Stephens’s story?

    I feel like I am in the middle of someone's plain ordinary life. If read to get out of the ordinary. To be fair I have only listened to about four hours of the book and nothing is hooking me.


    How could the performance have been better?

    There wasn't much emotion in the read.


    Any additional comments?

    I had a hard time with the main character. I can only listen to someone who lacks self confidence and thinks that everyone else is better than them for so long. I don't mind a person being modest or plain but this girl found everyone else exotic and nothing about herself interesting. I found her high maintenance in a negative way.

    "Intense and getting hotter!!!"

    Wow! Very good follow up. I love that fact that it picks up right where the last book left off. Kiera is with Kellan and Denny is out of the picture. No more triangle. This book is all about Kellan and Kiera inner demons and struggling to make their very very very intense rocky relationship work while Kellan is off becoming a rock star. Kiera actually redeems herself a little to me in this book. She really is in love with Kellan but she just put herself in the dankest situations.

    Ross does another stellar performance.

    Great credit if you have book one. Great buy if you buy along with book one. I can't wait to listen to book 3.

    "This Romance Is Far From Effortless"
    What did you love best about Effortless?

    That unlike the first book that set the stage for this romance the second one has happiness,
    funny moments mixed in with the emotional roller coaster ride that this young romance continues to experience.


    Which character – as performed by Rebekkah Ross – was your favorite?

    I thought she did a great job with all of them, was able to enjoy the story but if I was to pick one what she does with Griffith's voice is really funny


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh several times


    Any additional comments?

    I am on to the third really enjoying it but think they are headed for some really hard times in the third book.

    "Book 2 - excellent shame about the person reading!"

    Book 2 of the Thoughtless trilogy. This one continues with Kellan and D-Bags being discovered and going off on a 6 month tour as a support act. Kiera shows emotional development but still continues to distrust what is between her and Kellan with a level of disbelief that bugged me! I did struggle with her continuous eeore attitude but glad to say that I kept going.



    The two are seperated for six months whilst he tours with the band. She continues her studies and working at Pete's bar. New friendships develop and and old frendship is restablished and she consistently blurs the line.



    A serious shake up towards the end will keep you on the edge of the seat but it does work out!



    Definitely recommended as a written book but again the wrong person reading it!
