Review of Effortless


Effortless is the second book in the Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens. It is a new adult contemporary romance.

After being caught in the middle of a love triangle that 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.

I don’t know how it escaped my attention but as I was cleaning up some of my reviews recently, I noticed that I didn’t post my review for Effortless. I don’t know how I missed this but I shall make up for it now. 🙂

Effortless is the follow up to Thoughtless. In this book Deny has now moved on and Kiera and Kellan are free to be a couple. Only things aren’t that easy.

By the way this is one of those books where you have to read the first book in the series (Thoughtless) to understand anything going on in the second.

Let me go on to say that if you didn’t like the first book, you aren’t going to like the second for the very same reasons. It’s not perfect, not by any means and the problems that existed in Thoughtless are also here in Effortless. And I’m sorry to say Kiera doesn’t become any more likable in Effortless either. Her character is very untrustworthy and unlikable.

In fact, if possible she actually becomes more annoying than she was in the first book. She’s very immature and that book highlights that fact oh so well.

But again like the previous time I asked you to over look the few tiny problems, to get a great story as a whole, I’m going to do that again.

This book isn’t perfect but if you can turn that blind eye to the few problems you’ll find a smile on your face when you get to the end of the book.
