Goodreads: For almost two years
now, Kiera's boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she's ever wanted:
loving, tender and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new
city to start their lives together, Denny at his dream job and Kiera at
a top-notch university, everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen
obligation forces the happy couple apart.
confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source—a
local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he's purely a friend that
she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their
relationship. And then one night everything changes...and none of them
will ever be the same.
I found this book on netgalley and really wanted to read it, i wasnt dissapointed it was amazing.
Kira moves from Ohio to to Seattle to be with boyfriend of two years Denny. They move in with Denny's friend rock star Kellan Kyle. When Denny is called away from work Kira finds comfort in Kellan. What starts of as a friendship soon turns in to something far more. When Denny drops everything to return to Kira she is riddled with guilt over her feelings for Kellan. Caught in a love triangle Kira must choose between her safe life with her love of two years Denny or her passioned filled life with Kellan. With Denny wanting to move to Australia and have a comfortable life there and Kellan's admission of love Kira must choose. will she pick a risky life of passion or stay on the safe road?
I loved this book! from the first chapter i was hooked. i fell in love with the characters straightway! I got so involved in the story! i remember one day i was reading it and Kellan said something harsh to Kira and i walked out my house upset and angry pouring my heart out i just got so involved! I think this story will stay with me for awhile. I think it was because it was so well written and so close to situations that happen in real life.
I feel in love with Kellan! who wouldn't he is described to bed amazingly hunky! and looks something like the guy on the right. I loved the fact that he is this hard rock star, he has raw passion, blazing anger, heated passion and a seductive smile. but underneath all that charm you see this vulnerable side that Kira brings out, you see that boy that got beaten by his father, was hated by his parents and had never felt love. I loved his macho side but loved the Kellan that cried over losing Kira even more!
Kira was slightly irritating, i know she loved Denny and i know she loved Kellan but her bed hopping got on my nerves. She seemed to whine about everything! and sometimes was a shrinking violet. The most irritating thing is after Denny leaves she doesn't tell Kellan that she is in love with him and just lets him walk away! (even when he is sweet enough to write songs for her and get a tatoo that reminds him of her)
Although i loved Denny, his goofy grin and warm brown eyes i still loved Kellan more he didn't have that hotness that Kellan has. he a sweet goody goody while Kellan has that bad boy but sweet thing going on!
I cant wait to read Effortless! i want to see what happens to Kira and Kellan! i would definitely recommend this book and i wanna read it again! I think this is a book that will stay with me for a long time!
