“…you finally get it.”…
… “get what?”…
“That I’m yours… that you can take me… anywhere, anytime, anyway. That you own every piece of me.”
Oh god – this book just wrenched my heart out in an AMAZING way! In fact, I’m sure it even stopped entirely a few times!! I liked it even more than book 1 and thats saying a lot cuz I looooved Thoughtless.
“Loving you, Kellan, is so easy, it’s effortless.” His smile matched mine, then I frowned and sighed “Trusting you…that’s the hard part.”
This book is all about trust. Keira and Kellan are finally and officially a couple, but they have a lot to deal with. Kellan’s rock band is getting some national recognition and he ends up having to go on tour for several months but Keira can’t come because of school. So its all about her learning to trust him (since he has quite the man-whoring past and he’s an insanely hot rock star who is on every girl’s f*ck-me list lol), while he has to learn to trust her in his absence because even though in book 1 she was cheating on Denny to be with him – the love of her life, she still showed herself to be the kind of girl who could cheat. Both issues are valid and its up to the both of them to prove to each other that their love for each other is strong enough to overcome any barrier that is thrown in their way and that they are each worthy of each other’s trust.
And the notes (!!!!!!) *dies* I don’t want to spoil too much but basically when he goes, he leaves all these notes everywhere for her to find and they just melted my heart!!
“… if for some reason we’re not closer, if something has gotten between us, please, I’m begging you…don’t give up on me. Stay. Stay with me. Work it out with me. Just don’t leave me…please.” ~Kellan
This book make me cry several times – usually happy tears or just very emotional tears… its just a really really beautiful story!!
Also, its important to note that even though there IS a third book coming out (*squeeeeeee*), this book ends with a very happy, completely satisfying ending. In fact, for a long time, I thought this was the end of the series, and if it was, I would have been 100% happy with how things ended. Definitely HEA feel. But I CANNOT WAIT for book 3!!!!!
“…but what it all boils down to is three words that don’t mean nearly enough… I love you.” ~Kellan

Okay, I just finished the books Thoughtless and Effortless, and I am in love with Keira and Kellan, too! As I was reading Effortless, the song, “Pretty Little Heart” by Robin Thicke kind of sums up what our beloved Keira and Kellan are fighting with (thoughts of fidelity and trust) throughout book 2. I <3 that they got a happy ending, I think they are good for each other, so I was hoping for that.
Here's a video of Robin singing that song –
I’ll be sure to check the video out when I get back to a computer. I just love finding specific songs that for the mood of the books you are reading 🙂 And I totally agree – I loved the HEA at the end of this book!
