"I'm not doing anything wrong, baby. I love you. I'm being faithful to you." He held up his ring, his thumb stroking the metal. "I promised... I promise."

Just like Thoughtless, Effortless is an amazing read. It's the continuation of Keira and Kellan's (*swoons*) story as they progress further into their relationship. The focus of this book is trust. Both do not have it because their relationship was founded on a betrayal. Keira is not as unlikeable as in book one. She is very insecure and lacks self-esteem which many of us would feel if we were dating the gorgeous rock god Kellan Kyle. However, there were moments when I felt like screaming "Get it into your thick skull that Kellan loves you, Keira. You are the only girl he has ever found love with and opened up to. Trust him. Why would he destroy what he has been searching for all his life? He entrusted his Chevelle with you for god's sake!" Phew! Rant over. Eventually she becomes less irritating and even likeable as she takes control of Kellan's family issues.

There are lots more lovely sex scenes (bathroom scene, anyone!), lots more heartaches and agonies, and lots more romance. One flaw though. I wanted S. C. Stephens to describe what Kellan did with those handcuffs!

Overall, Effortless is an engaging must-read. You will experience the highs and the lows of Kiera and Kellan's ever-challenging relationship, and what a rewarding experience it is. BRING ON BOOK 3...

“Don't leave me," I begged, when I found air to speak. Kellan wrapped his arms around me just as tight. Voice cracking he murmured, "I won't...I'm yours, Kiera, for as long as you want me." Pulling back I cupped his face. "Forever, I want you forever.”
S.C. Stephens, Effortless
