Publisher's Summary

After being caught in the middle of a love triangle which led to a devastating betrayal, Kiera pledged to learn from the mistakes she’d made. She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

Time to Pay the Piper!

This is what happens when a relationship is started in the Worst Way! It dosn't matter how much you Love each other.......There will be issues of Trust. They have to Fight for it! Great follow through on the series. I am looking forward to the next book "Reckless."

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.

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.

Spectacular series- couldn't be any better!

Loved, loved, loved book 1.
Book 2 didn't disappoint as a follow up :)
This is the authors best trilogy. Have read the other and it was good, but this one was great. Spectacular. Wonderfully delightful.
The narrator was fantastic as Kiera again and I love her other voices. Her Australian accent is delightful and her performance of Griffin is the best! Griffin is my favorite character in the whole series. Comic relief is always the best :) I giggle whenever his lines are delivered.
I've listened to this series three times now, and am patiently waiting for the release of book 4, from Kellen's view point.
Read this side of the story 1st... You won't be disappointed!

Part two is sooooo much better!

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, <br/>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.

Love, Love, Love It!!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Effortless to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version, but I do feel that this narrator brought each character to live.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character, of course, is Kellan. However, Griffin is so colorful that I loved him as well. He lightens scenes and "the Hulk" is classic. Kellan is sweet, sexy, and humble, the perfect mix.

What does Rebekkah Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gives each character personality. Her inflections and accents completely made the story. Each character had their own charm.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Overcoming issues and obstacles is always difficult, but loving someone is Effortless.

Any additional comments?

I loved this series. Some of the off handed humor caught me off guard. Each character had their own draw. You could picture each person and their personality.

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!

Any additional comments?
