    2. It's unusually goodI'm not certain why I ordered the story because it's not my usual.

    4. This was a interesting book. We have two people on seemingly different journeys in life or so it seems. Both have a attraction to each other but to one the other has a life that is effortless. Helen is the lost kind of selfish character who is trying to figure out who she is, what she wants and how her life fits in the grand scheme of things.

    5. It is quick and effortless movement from frame to frame that keeps you engrossed. I enjoyed the very descriptive virtual tour of Paris and London as the backdrop. I’ve not been to Paris, but from London I could tell the author experienced it herself. Maybe a little more directed to a female audience, but just as girlfriends in the past introduced me to movies geared toward women that I have enjoyed, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Quickly hooked I wanted to know more. The scenes were well laid [...]

    6. Effortless reminded me of a favorite indie movie. One that shows the life of the protagonist, the movements through each day; both the mundane & the heart fluttering, and the reality. We meet Helen, a high school teacher, while she goes through another break-up, a possible crush and a trip overseas with her students. You feel for her as she gets emotionally blasted by people in her life who enjoy to remind her about her endless faults. As if they are perfect. The trip to Europe has her exper [...]

    7. It's a masterpiece.I was deeply moved by this book. What I loved the most about the book is that I felt deeply connected to the characters. I loved hearing the internal and external dialogue of the characters. I was completely immersed in the questions that were asked and raised. These are some of the same questions that I find myself thinking about on a daily basis. Everything about the dialogue, the twists, and the imagery, flowed for me from beginning to end. I felt incredibly happy while rea [...]

    9. A little off the beaten track for my literary taste but the reviews struck an accord and I thought I'd give it a go. It's a nice story, a bit twee for me but I have to say it is told very well. One of the stand out things for me is the way an author moves between characters and whether they manage to maintain momentum in terms of direction. Marina Raydun does this very well, creating expectations whilst keeping the reader guessing as to the final outcome. For readers who enjoy real world romance [...]

    10. I was given this book for review and thought it a well written story about relationships and striving for what you think you want.It is difficult to say much because I don't give spoilers but this tale delves into the emotions of a woman who wants change, and for those who enjoy this genre it is worth a look.

    11. I knew I was going to give this 5 stars from the opening chapter. It so connected with me and Iv quickly became lost in the story. The style of writing is very good and brings much warmth to the characters as well as the background settings. I now have some back books to read so am hoping for some summer sun.

    12. Possibly the biggest waste of time First of all, this isn't a stand alone book, and was not advertised as such. Second, it is a completely worthless story. I found it to be vulgar (I skipped a lot of pages) and am disappointed that I even finished the book, if it can be called such. I am giving it a one star rating because I have to rate it, and I suppose negative stars aren't an option.
