Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. Sort order. There I said it. I read Thoughtless because a friend kept badgering me to, and while it was enjoyable, it was also torture.
But, I did enjoy Thoughtless I ended up giving it 3 stars and agreed albeit reluctantly to read Effortless. And I was still reluctant. I was pleasantly surprised to find a more mature Kiera. At one point I was begging my friend for spoilers because I was at a frustrating point filled with angst and I wanted to throw my Kindle across the room. I received the answers and reassurance I was looking for and continued on the Kellan and Kiera journey.
Kellan remained the romantic and nearly perfect boyfriend. That was the sweetest thing ever! When I started this book, I had forgotten how annoying Griffin could be. His actions at the end of the book were what did it for me. I loved catching up with the D-Bags and just let me say…I really hate that name and all of their girlfriends.
I was happy with the ending of this book. My reviews can also be found on the blog Confessions of 2 Book Lovers.

And God said "let there be perfection" -and there was. Emotional, heartwarming, perfection. Kellan Kyle will forever be one of my very favorite heroes. He melted my heart. I can't praise this book enough! This is S C Stephens at her absolute best. Thank you for giving me the best reading experience of my life! There's really not enough great things I can say about this. It was amazingly perfect for me and the author is completely fantastic This had everything I could ever want and hope for in a book, and it was also absolutely flawless!
It was so much better than I ever could have imagined and dreamt of. The best sequel ever written. My heart is overflowing with happy emotions. This woman can do no wrong in my book. I completely adore her.
Every book I have read by her has been absolutely amazing. And the Thoughtless triology has been beyond incredible so far. It is like she has been in my head and picked out exactly what I want to read about and the characters I want to get to know.
Not to mention the fact that she has introduced me to the love of my life rock God Kellan Kyle! Every page, every sentence, every syllable, just perfection. I can't get my head around how much I loved this book! He is panty changing sexy, aka sex on legs, he is un-freaking-belivable gorgeous, and he loves Kiera unconditionaly. Not to mention he is shy on occasion, cocky as hell in others, has a vulnerable side and, nothing seems to embarrass him.
I love every side of him, there are no words for how much I love him. He will always hold a top spot in my heart. He is born to stand on the stage but he is only truly happy when he is with his girl.
Until Kiera, she changed everything for him. He isn't afraid to let her see his vulnerable side, and it makes him even more sexy.. From page one to the last. I wouldn't change ONE thing. And the ending? Sweet God in heaven, most perfect ever! It made me so unbelivable happy. I read the last pages with a big, goofy smile on my face. Over Kellan Kyle. View all 79 comments. Kellan was all kinds of perfection. I loved that Kiera was trying so hard to make a life for herself outside of Kellan.
I can only imagine how hard that would be for anyone. Even though she had issues with jealousy and trust, she was big eno 4th Re-read!!! Even though she had issues with jealousy and trust, she was big enough to own her feelings and think them through rationally. And I loved that Kellan was always so patient and did everything he could to ease Kiera's insecurities. It was also so heart breaking to see how he really didn't think he was worthy of being loved. He was just as fearful of losing Kiera as she was of losing him.
This book was about Kellan and Kiera finding themselves as individuals and realizing that although how they got together was f'd up, that they truly were meant to be. That their love could see them through all the tough times and they'd become better versions of themselves because of it. It's so hard to believe that someone so young and extemely hot as Kellan Kyle has an ability to love one woman so passionately.
I fell hard for this character and the story. Even ended up liking Kiera better in this book. I was not too crazy about her in the first one. There are parts where my stomach was tied up in knots but in the end this story leaves you thoroughly content! The 3rd book "Reckless" comes out in March I can hardly wait!!!!!! View all 65 comments. I was completely bored with Effortless. I wasn't a fan of Kiera to begin with in Thoughtless , and it certainly didn't change in the second book.
Kiera's insecurities and disbeliefs in the first pages were terribly off-putting, including her constant comparison of her and other girls or questioning why Kellan is with her. It was just so tiresome reading how much she was mesmerized by Kellan, like she's still in awe of his physical attributes and the love she has for him is an afterthought. At some I was completely bored with Effortless.
At some point, I was convinced Kellan loved her more than she loved him, and she was more into being with a rockstar than really being with Kellan. But hey View all 22 comments. Fans of Beautiful Disaster. I really hope that S. Stephens will publish paperback because I want to have Effortless on my bookshelf.

Nov 22, Hulya Kara Yuksel rated it it was amazing. D view spoiler [Finally Kellan and Kiera together. But he thought everything before he left.
He wrote a lot of love notes and letters to Kiera He was so adorable. Kellan Kyle!!! I wanna lick you and bite you! I'll see you again baby, just please wait for me I wanted a part of me in you. Every night, no matter where I am, crawling into bed with you.
Our bed will be a lot bigger, miles wide, but it will just be you and me inside it. Your body fires me. Your fingertips brushing over my skin, ignites me. Your breath washing over me, enflames me. Everything about you is sensual, and you have no idea…none. When you stare at me with those smoky eyes, undressing me like I undress you, all of the blood rushes down, and I want you…so bad. Your body wrapped around mine is the only way I feel whole. Being with you, making love to you, it only solidifies what I feel for you.
View all 14 comments. Maybe I was just too drained from reading Thoughtless and I should have waited before moving on to this one.
Thoughtless had a satisfying ending, but I just had to have more of him. Talk about needy. So, I guess that says something about the book and the writing. The stuff that boy says and does, is like a drug for me, and I needed an encore.
My suggestion is, if you read Thoughtless, give yourself a breather before you move on to this one. I think I would have appreciated it more if I had done that.
One more note. There were some very funny moments in this book, usually involving Griffin. Oh, he's obnoxious and downright gross at times, but he was good for a few laughs. He grew on me! View all 24 comments.
Trusting you With a booking to a local festival the Dbags get booked to travel with 6 other bands cross-country for 6 months. Honestly it gets exhausting seeing everything through Kiera's eyes how she perceives people around her. Everyone is more beautiful, voluptuous, out-going, petite Those frustrations aside. The story was wonderful. The struggle of a long distance relationship and things you do to maintain close.
On some occasions Kiera managed to impress me, such as her instances to not move in with Kellan in begging. She wanted to create her own identity without being complete dependent on a boyfriend, which is what happened with Denny. Also, their situation is hard Love without trust In the end they both pull through, even with minor bruises.
They are both hesitant and not easy in trusting each other but all they have to do is be honest. Too bad that they take such a long time to confide in each other. My understanding of them 2 and Anna is something like this: But seriously, can't wait to see what will happen with those two. Or Anna is seriously screwed with 2 Hulks that will want to breathe all the time hide spoiler ] Now that the DBags have a recording contract I can't wait to see what new adventures they will get into Review to come!

But,It all happens for a reason,I took the time to hate an This novel was so gut wrenching and painful to read. But,It all happens for a reason,I took the time to hate and love her character. And Let me not forget to mention Kellan Kyle is the definition of a player.
But in his world Kiera is his everything. Is it enough to keep the love of his life to trust him? But then again,would I ever put myself in a circus situation and deal with all the drama? In reality? Hell Freaking NO!! Everything gets repeated in small glimpses in this novel.
So skip it. Can Also be viewed at http: View all 7 comments. I really enjoyed reading this book, there was still that angst that SC writes so superbly, though not to quite the same degree as in Thoughtless, which my hair was thankful for. Kiera matures significantly over the course of this book and that growth is evident by the end of Effortless. I was so happy with the way this book wrapped up, it was a perfect WOW if I thought I was in love with Kellan Kyle at the end of the first book, well I am head over heels giddy for him having finished Effortless.
I was so happy with the way this book wrapped up, it was a perfect ending and I cannot wait for the third book in this series to be released!
I don't think I could ever get enough of Kellan Kyle. I had been looking for a "Travis- like" character Beautiful Disaster and Kellan surpassed all my expectations. Just love him! Totally and irrevocably. View all 3 comments. This book wasn't bad. No, really. I don't even mean this in a sarcastic way. Considering I had several gripes about the first book, I found myself not as frustrated with Effortless , the followup book to the whiplash-inducing drama of Thoughtless.
My feelings were jumbled when it came to Thoughtless. I had some positives and even more negatives to say about the book, but had a hard time finding any sort of sympathy for Kiera and her selfishness. There was a lot of character growth in Effortless. I This book wasn't bad.
I can't say that all of the crying and jealousy was missing, because if this had happened, we wouldn't have been working with the same characters anymore.
While people can and do change, I think that there will always be a part of our flaws at the core. It's how we choose to treat our flaws that guarantees success or failure. At least Kiera was a better person in this book, making me like her not completely hate her I still had my weakness for the flawed Kellan and so far, no one's sued me Mistakes were still made, lies were still told, but this time around, our lead characters seemed to learn from their mistakes and at least make the effort to improve upon themselves.
Now, this is not technically a spoiler, but I'm going to hide the scene in spoiler tags because it is a bit racy. Click at your own risk. I laughed so hard when I read the scene, so I thought I'd share it with all of you. Oh my god, I could not do this. Feeling moronic, I whispered, "Touch it, pretend it's me. I was expecting Kellan to chuckle, but he didn't Oh damn He hissed in a breath, releasing it with a gasp. What now? He moaned in my ear, his breath faster. Aching myself now, I moaned a little.
He was pretending, maybe I should too? I ran my hand down my stomach, but I couldn't make myself go any further. I was far too embarrassed. Kellan didn't know that though. His breath increased. Oh my god That was when I heard something that dashed some cold water on my moment.
Kellan stopped breathing heavy and the phone muffled. Quieter than he had been, but still loud enough to hear, I heard him say, "I'll have a Denver omelette.
Thank you. Before he spoke to me again, I snapped out, "Kellan Kyle! Are you in a restaurant? Greasy spoon, maybe. Sitting ramrod straight, I whispered, "OH my god. Please tell me that you're sitting alone.
I could almost hear him debating on whether or not to answer me. He says hey, by the way. Not only had he faked that little moment, but he'd faked it in front of his friends and the celebrity that I knew I'd never be able to look in the eye again. View all 44 comments. Nov 30, Bayli rated it it was amazing Shelves: Thoughtless or Effortless.
Though I do have to say that Kiera only pissed me off half the time in this book as opposed to being pissed off the entire time in the book before. I mean. IT made me swoon to the point I thought I might explode. Why does Kellan have to be so perfect. Okay he's not perfect- he's ha 5 Heart throbbing, loving every minute of Kellan, Stars I honestly can't tell you which book I loved more: Lets start with one of my favorite quotes, shall we?
Kellan you are just amazing. If a woman reading this book wasn't in love with you yet she certainly would be in love with you after that. I mean seriously?
Can you get any hotter? I think not.
Oh wait Maybe he can because then he continues to say this: I mean look how deliciously honest he is with her! No man that is having an affair would say something like that! No one would open up and be that honest!
So of course at this point in the book, I'm seriously thinking I might faint I mean it was getting a little hot over here after I read that.
OKay, I lied Not just a little hot. I think I started to hyperventilate. And let me just give you one more quote and if this doesnt make you want to drop everything including but not limited to your panties then I give up. No man will ever please you. You, mine, for the rest of my life. I love you so much. I love you, always, Kellan Yes Kellan, please marry me. And that's really all I have to say View all 12 comments.
As I mentioned in my Thoughtless review, I really love the premise of the storyline that started as a love triangle between Kiera, her boyfriend Denny and his friend Kellan, whom Kiera has an affair with. Effortless is the story of Kiera and Kellan attempting to put the pieces back together and start a normal relationship that isn't based on sneaking around, lying, and drama.
Unfortunately contains spoilers Unfortunately they don't seem to have a relationship that isn't based on sex, because it seems like thats all they like to do and its the band-aid to fix all of their problems. In Effortless, Kiera continues to whine and obsess over Kellan's good looks.
From where I sat, it really seemed like Kiera didn't truly love Kellan at all but was infatuated with his looks and in some sick ways, his bad reputation as being a player. Kellan seemed to really love Kiera, although its not truly clear why because she's not that nice and seems to have a lot of issues with wanting a boyfriend AND a back-up boyfriend.
Once Kellan leaves to go on tour with his band, their relationship is put to the test. Can they be apart? Can they be faithful? 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. Love is easy…trust is hard. Thank you so much for your encouragement, as it means the world to me.
I hope you get as much from reading this as I did from writing it. It is intended for adult readers. As I was smashed into and bumped up against, I felt that heat in the skin of every person that touched me.
It was a little revolting to have strange people rubbing up against my body. It was even more revolting when some of those strangers decided that being crammed together in a group like we were, gave them the freedom to in-vade my personal space.
Sweat poured down the back of my t-shirt and I momentarily cursed my fashion choice. As I glanced up at the cloudless, azure sky, the mid-day sun hit me square in the eye, blinding me.
But then I smiled, remembering why I was wearing it and what I was doing in this crowd of sweaty bodies. As I stared past the few rows of glistening people in front of me to an empty stage, a nervous energy flooded into me.
Not for me. No, for my boyfriend. Today was his big day. I knew that at any moment he was going to rush to that microphone and the awaiting crowd was going to scream ear-splittingly loud. Hands next to me grabbed my bare arms. Our boys are playing Bumbershoot! Her boyfriend was playing the Seattle Music Festival for the first time too. Squealing a little in my growing eagerness, Iclutched her arms back. Hole and Mary J.
Blige were playing in the next couple of days. Jenny looked over when some stranger ran into her; he seemed completely stoned. Glancing back at me, her blonde ponytail lightly flicking my face, she shrugged.
Saturday afternoon on a perfect summer day, smashed right in-between two great acts. Inodded when her face returned to mine. Our D-Bags had finally decided to grace the crowd with their presence. The assemblage before the outdoor stage started jumping and hollering as Matt and Griffin hopped on stage first. Matt was his normal, contained self, acknowledging the fan fest with a small smile and a slight wave.
He quietly walked to his microphone and strapped on his guitar. His light blue eyes scanned the crowd nervously as he adjusted the strap on his shoulder. Spotting Jenny and I back a ways from the front, he pointed at us. Then he lifted his fingers up to his mouth in a V position and did suggestive things with his tongue that made my cheeks flame hotter than the steamy sunshine Iwas standing in.
Iimmediately looked away. Several people around Jenny and I laughed and looked at us. My embarrassment tripled. Evan had come up during the middle of that display, and seeing Griffin sexually harass us, he looked over our way.
He smiled and waved, blowing a kiss to Jenny. She snatched it in the air and blew him one back. I laughed at the look, happy that the good-spirited man was taking a second to enjoy his success. Then the scream got so loud my ears started ringing. I actually half-closed my eyes it was so painful. Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God! Of course, I completely understood. Lord knows he had completely affected me in the beginning.
Still did, honestly. Even just watching him confidently strut onto the stage, the stage he owned with every fiber of his being, my body tingled for him. Kellan walked up to his microphone slowly. Or maybe it was a regular pace and my mind was just on the slow-motion button. Whatever the reason, it seemed to take him forever to get to where he was headed. He had one hand up, waving to the mass of people clamoring for him and he ran the other back through his thick, bed-head hair. The heat and 5 sweat made the sandy-brown mess stick out even more crazily and he looked just completely edible.
I bit my lip as he finished his saunter to his mic stand. He scanned the crowd as he adjusted the height on it. I knew from experience just what the front row was feeling as those midnight-blue bedroom eyes washed over them. He had a way of looking at you that made you feel like no one else existed in the world, even if a crowd was around you.
Add that to the sexy half-smile on his face, and you got a man who could ignite you with just a glance. The girls behind me seemed to think so, too. Like magic, he spotted Jenny and me instantly.
She waved then whistled with her fingers in her mouth. I flushed and smiled as those amazingly intense eyes locked onto mine. I again ignored the desire to acknowledge that I knew him and to tell them that he was mine.
Questions I did not want to talk about with complete and total strangers. Instead, I discreetly mouthed that I love him too and gave him a couple of thumbs up.
And he would. If anything, Kellan had been preparing himself for a moment like this for years now, playing small bars and clubs down in L. Slinging a guitar over his shoulder, he wrapped his hand around the microphone. The screams intensified again when it became obvious that he was going to speak. I laughed and tried to move away from some of the more revved up girls, although, with nowhere to go, I only ended up bumping into a couple of guys in front of me.
But, Iknew it was an act.
I was in his heart. Heck, I was tattooed over his heart. I smiled, knowing that not one single woman here was aware of that fact. Well, besides Jenny, anyway. He held up a finger to quiet the crowd. They surprisingly did back off, a little bit. The crowd loudly indicated that they did. Jenny was hollering her answer through her hands, so Ijoined in. I noticed Matt shaking his head, smiling as he flexed his hand. Evan was now sitting in front of his drums, moving his body to an unheard beat and spinning a stick in his hands.
As Kellan eyed the crowd, I watched Griffin try to get a couple of girls to lift their shirts. Kellan brought his hand up to his ear. I no longer cared about any of them, because Kellan brought his eyes back to mine and the pure joy I saw on his face was enough to make all of the forward women, all of the grabby men, and all of the sweaty strangers, completely worth it.
