Reviews for Effortless
lovevictim chapter 26 . 6/18/2011
I remember telling you when i had finally finished reading thoughtless that i won't be able to read it again in the fear of heartbreak, but you know many at times i wanted to click on the story because i really missed Kellen and Keira, so just imagine my happiness when i saw a sequel to it. I absaloutly loved this story, just as much as thoughtless actually, but while thoughtless really tore my heart, this was sort of bittersweet.I admire how you kept all this realistic and didn't just make it all fairytale-ish issues, jealousy and pain was something that was bound to happen in a relationship that started in a wrong way, and i'm really glad you showed that,however what i'm more glad about is that you showed them coming out of this stronger.

Anyways there are other things other than Kellen and Keira that made me happy, one being that Denny has got his happily ever after aswell. I really am so happy for him, he didn't deserve what happened to him so i'm glad it turned out well for him aswell. I absaloutly adore his character, i mean no one else would have forgiven their best friend and girlfriend for that sort of betrayel but he did, and that really makes him a great person.

And OMG Anne pregnant, now that was a shocker but in a way somehow expected LOL, and you know what else when you wrote about her stuffing those test in a bag inside Keira's drawer, i had known instantly the Kellan was going to find out and think wrong of it LMAO, it was expected but the way you showed it Jeez women! you truly know how to make one cry LOL.

Last but definity not the least, there is something i loved especially and surprise surprise (NOT) it's about Kellan. I love how you showed that Kellen isn't those type of guy that thinks crying are for pansies LOL, you made him seem more real :) He's this gorgeous rockstar that any girl would fall for, but you also give him a bit of a character by showing his vulnerable side, that's something i haven't read in many stories in this site. So you know what, YOU ROCK!, you seriously do, i am absaloutly in love with your writing (Yes even when it makes me cry bucked load LMAO)

I hope you write many more stories in the future, because you are really talented, and i would love to read more stories by you.
Natalie Ann chapter 21 . 6/17/2011
Aww this was really sweet! I'm not at all surprised that Anna wound up pregnant, how very Griffin.

I do really like seeing this depth in Anna's character, not that she was depth-less before, but this new side of her is really beautiful.

I'm not sure how I'm feeling about Kiera right now, personally I feel like honesty is the best way to solve most problems, but I do understand where she's coming from. Their relationship did start out of lies and cheating and she's very legitimate in her worries that he's cheating. I love the realism of all of these characters.

Wonderfully written. You know I love your stuff :)

Being a fan of thoughtless, I felt a bit like effortless was slightly lacking. Not that it wasn't good, because it was, it just wasn't as riviting to me.

I think sequels should be equal or better then the previous works and I can't really say that about effortless. Plus, I don't think the title matches the story at all.. if anything their relationship takes a lot of effort and that's possibly the beauty of it, that they're willing to put all the effort into it. I know you had the line "loving you is effortless" but it kind of feels like you thought of a title for the story to match your first story but after writting the story realized it didn't match the title so you wrote the line in.

I also thought that this story was completely predictable, I knew exactly what was coming from the beginning. **Spoiler** I know you tried to hint that Candy was pregnant with Kellans child to throw us off, but I always knew the secret Kellan was hiding was his father coming back into his life.

Also, if you are trying to be in a trusting relationship, why would you ever lie about Denny being back in town? After everything she just went through by omitting truths, hiding, lying etc., someone would have learned from that experience. If she loved Kellan, she would've appreciated him enough to have learned her lesson before.

And the part where Kellan is mad and leaving Kiera because he thinks she's pregnant, thats unrealistic because in reality if he thought that, you'd immediately tell him , it was your sister who was pregnant, not you. It seemed a bit too forced.. like you were trying to invent drama and angst where it wasn't.

The whole story felt a little forced as thoughtless seemed more ... effortless.. pun intended.
YOUNG-the wild. free. in love chapter 27 . 6/14/2011
Well, first let me just say, that when I went to check my email address and I saw that there was a chapter 27, I screamed and my older sister was looking at me like I was mental and she was like, "why the eff did I come home?" Then I was like "That's your problem..." Then she stuck her tongue out at me...soo mature for a 17 year old right? HAHAHAAHHA.

Anyways, like I said, I screamed becuase I was so excited and I thought there was another chapter to this story but then I saw that it was just an author's note...I felt like crying.

But I didn't because my sister is already teasing me about going crazy.

I love K&K, butI guess now they're KK&KK, since theyre married now. How cute! I miss them like crazy and I hope that you continue to write about them becuase they're seriously all I think about...mostly when my boyfriend and I are fighting, I think about Kellan...but i would NEVER tell him that. He would get sooo mad and jealous. LOL. ;)

Love your stories. I hope you keep writing. Good luck with everything. 3

helplessromantic285 chapter 27 . 6/13/2011
Yay, it's finally an ebook. I miss Kellan and Keira, I just can't get them out of my head. I really loved Effortless, it was a great book to read, and a great book to still keep reading ,over and over. All of your books are my favorite, but when it comes to Kellan Kyle, well let's just say I stop what I'm doin just to read about him. I'm just hoping for an extra K&K book, because I still miss them, but I welcome any book you write ,they're all great. Congrats on all your great writing ,and all your new writing, you are a brilliant and thoughtful to hear of you soon.

Oh my, its the end. I love your writing, and really hope to read more from you soon. Your characters are so flawed and real, its hard not to get attached to them. The end of this story is bittersweet for me, I dont want it to be the end but at the same time I couldnt be happier that everything is working out Kiera and Kellan. I once heard this quote by Paul Sweeney- "You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend." That is the best way I know to describe your writing. I hope to see more of Kiera and Kellan soon!

I read the first story a while ago and loved it but I just realized the other day there was a second one so, of course, I started reading it. I love it just as much as the first one. Great writing, for both stories. I'm just in love with the characters!
Taciturne chapter 26 . 6/5/2011
Good god, I hope there's more. I wholeheartedly agree that your characters and stories are the most memorable in this sea of writing publications and sites. There's just something so peculiar about each one of them, that I feel like there'll be a Freudian slip anytime about me personally knowing a band called D-bags.

It's good to see that there was no let-up on the angsty-ness of the sequel, and I gott'a say that I also didn't have much faith in Kellan. I kept expecting something to happen the whole time he was on tour. Best part was his little notes. Too sweet. Just tore my heart out. Could there ever be a guy like that? Who's single and hits for our team? No, a girl can only dream. I am wondering how the idea came to be, though. What made you think of those notes and the tattoo? Blessed be thee.

I sometimes think to myself: I'm pretty sure we've run out of ideas to turn into books and movies, but then I read truly original stories like these and lose all doubt about the human mind. While I agree with Oscar Wilde ("Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."), there are just things thrown at us that strike us as inspiration. Who can explain the I-shall-name-him-Harry-'cause-I-was-taking-a-gander-at-cows concept?

There is something to be said about all sequels written: Should there be one at all? Shouldn't the story just stop at one? But this was a nice accompaniment to your admittedly admirable collection.

AJS chapter 26 . 5/31/2011
You finished this! I was just looking at your page the other day and thinking about how much I agreed with your summary for this story, and how much I wanted to read it and keep an eye out for when you finished it. I'm so glad I got a chance to read this - thank you so much for keeping your stories avalible here, and that really sucks to hear about the piraters out there. I must say though, I have read so many stories on Fictionpress throughout my years on this website, and many more fanfics before that on other websites, but your stories really do stick out to me, and I remember them very clearly. I don't know if I've read Conversion though? That's the only one that sticks out to me. I see on your profile that Thoughtless had a different ending and seeing that you describe it as tragic, I'm so glad you didn't end up doing that. Anyway, all throughout reading this story I was really surprised at how many of the little details I actually did remember from Thoughtless, and at all the characters I remembered. This is such a great story and I love how you were able to create a story that still kept everyone interested and with the right amount of drama, even without having them cheat on each other. The relationship between Kellan and Kiera is really precious, and I like how this story emphasizes that there is still so much drama and so many things to work on even after getting into a relationship.

The only things left that I'm curious about was 1) Anna's brief reaction before Christmas when she was a little hateful when talking about Kellan. I think Kiera thought something might have been up for a second, but then she brushed it away. What was that about? and 2) Kellan's side remark when he and Kiera reunited during Christmas and he said something about it was better than anything else. I think Kiera thought something of it too for a brief second and then pushed it aside.

Anyway I miss Kellan and Kiera already and I would love to see more of them in another sequel! I also like how you mended Kiera's relationship with Denny, and how it kind of took time for them to realize that they actually were just going to be friends. Sometimes in the past I have felt the same way. Like people who you once were attracted to, but then realized you are just friends, but then after not seeing them for a while you know that fact but still don't see it right away, but then settle into it as you start hanging out again and remember why it ended up that way. I really liked that aspect of this story too. Anyway. Loved this story. After so many great stories I am going to add you to my favorite author list. :)

I wish you the best of luck with getting Thoughtless published - such a great story as well, that also examines a perspective we don't often see. I will definitely keep an eye out for your stories in the future, and thanks for writing so many great ones! I miss Kellan & Kiera already. And am happy about Griffen. I wonder if he and Anna will be exclusive or how that'll turn out...

Midnight113 chapter 26 . 5/30/2011
AW! I don't want it to end! This was one of the best chapters ever and this story is now on the top of my favorites list. The whole thing with Griffin, Anna and the baby just played out exactly how I wanted it to. It's like you read my mind. LOL, gotta love Griffin. I'm so happy with how things turned out. Also, Kellan seems to have really taken a major leap with his own personal life. I'm glad she invited his father and that they finally met and had a chance to talk. It looks like things really worked out in that arena as well. ;)

I definitely noticed some loose ends... those are the best because they give us readers hope for more. Please, please, please, PLEASE let there be more! :) I'm not ready for it to be over, there's still so much you can do. What about Griffin Jr. (or not if it's a girl, lol) and of course I want to see how things progress with Kellan and his new family. Hopefully you'll be inspired again soon... really soon. Remarkable work, well done as always!
Midnight113 chapter 25 . 5/30/2011
I loved coming back to find this in my inbox, what an adorable chapter. Gotta love the closure with Denny, and finally meeting Abby too. It's good to see the boys back in town, everything feels like it came full circle. I'm just dying to find out what happens with crazy Griffin and Anna with the baby drama. Can't wait!
Britt Woods chapter 26 . 5/29/2011
Oh, please write book three! I love them and I really wanted to see Griffin's reaction to fatherhood. His reaction to her pregnancy was perfect! You're seriously the best! I know I'm gushing a bit right now haha, but I'm just so happy everything worked out for everyone.
Britt Woods chapter 23 . 5/29/2011
I really thought you were going to have Kellan cheat. Like, I was convinced. I think a lot of authors would have gone there, but I am SO happy that's not what it was about. While everyone in the story believed he would, it wouldn't have made sense to me. Not after seeing their relationship behind closed doors. Man, those chapters were agonizing! Phenomenal job, by the way.
