My Thoughts: I really enjoyed reading Easy. I picked it up for the cover, and because of an author I love, Colleen Hoover. She recommended it on her blog. The cover suggested it would be a sensual type of romance, which I love. The romance was indeed hot. And gentle, like the way he touches her on the cover. I'm glad that I bought this book, it didn't disappoint at all.
I liked Jacqueline. She was strong, clever and funny. She made the mistake following her high school boyfriend to college. Then the guy -of course- dumbed her for the chance to bed as many hot chicks as he can while in college. The ex, Kennedy was a huge douchebag. Jacqueline could count herself lucky that it came out now, before they got married or something.
Jacqueline played upright bass, and she was in music education major, but music didn't take much part in the story. I personally love books that have music in them, and I'd loved to read more about Jacqueline, the musician.
Her love interest Lucas/Landon (I probably won't give away too much by saying that they are both the same person) was great. I only had one tinie tiny problem with him. He was too perfect. Okay, now you say that I don't make any sense, right? Why is it a problem that he was so perfect? Well, it made him unreal. And a little boring.
Operation Bad Boy Phase was on.
The book deals with the subject of rape (no it wasn't Jacqueline who got raped) It's a tough issue to write about it, and Tammara Webber handles it very well. She really shows the effects of the rape, how it can change lives.
All in all, I really liked this book. And I'd recommend it to the lovers of young adult contemporary romance.
Author: Tammara Webber
Blurb from Goodreads:
When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, stalked by her ex’s frat brother, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Her econ professor gives her an email address for Landon, the class tutor, who shows her that she’s still the same intelligent girl she’s always been. As Jacqueline becomes interested in more from her tutor than a better grade, his teasing responses make the feeling seem mutual. There’s just one problem—their only interactions are through email.
Meanwhile, a guy in her econ class proves his worth the first night she meets him. Nothing like her popular ex or her brainy tutor, Lucas sits on the back row, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. At a downtown club, he disappears after several dances that leave her on fire. When he asks if he can sketch her, alone in her room, she agrees—hoping for more.
Then Jacqueline discovers a withheld connection between her supportive tutor and her seductive classmate, her ex comes back into the picture, and her stalker escalates his attention by spreading rumors that they’ve hooked up. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy. Author Recommendation: Mature Young Adults (language, drinking, sexual situations).
