Effortless (Thoughtless, #2) - S.C. Stephens Overall I enjoyed the book. I wasn't as intensely involved as I was with Thoughtless, probably because I really did not like Kiera through the first half of the book. The constant petty jealousy and doubts really became annoying and hard to read. The overall story was good and the second half of the book played out much better and became much more enjoyable. It was a few months between reading the two books and I will probably go back and read through the first one again since I don't remember disliking Kiera as much in that one. Glad I kept with it.
