Genre: Romance

Summary (Goodreads):

A continuation of the novel, Thoughtless...

A lot can happen in a year. You grow, you change, you learn from your mistakes. And Kiera had made a lot of mistakes to learn from. But she had learned, and she was determined to never cause a man pain again, especially the amazing man who currently held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it come out the other side unscathed?

Love is easy…trust is hard.

My Thoughts:

You think The End has written in Thoughtless because finally, Kellan and Kiera are together? No. Effortless is the continuation--or should I say, start--of their bizarre love story.

Here in book two, Kiera became the Rockstar's Girlfriend. Her patience, understanding, trust and love was tested for being one. Like we're all most aware of, it must be hard being the girlfriend--especially if your boyfriend was not just popular, but also hot.

I liked this better than the first book, I guess. The first book is quite painful because of the affair. Kellan and Kiera tried to stay honest to each other while Kellan was away for the tour. But even as much as they tried, there're still some issues they can't seem to tell each other.

It almost break my heart and made me pissed again with all these secrets and issues but when I reached the 'revealing' part, I was more like, understood their situations. The ending was wonderful, and yes, swoon-worthy.

Reading this book, I also understand the role/s of a popular guy's (more like artist/actor) girlfriend. She have to trust and be proud of her guy. She must not get the girl fans under her skin--because when you really love each other and know that you're both faithful, any story lies or amount of girls would never rip you apart. On/off spotlight, it will all come down into just both of you.


Thoughtless (book one) fans! *Adult content!
