Blurb:

A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. 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, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex’s frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night–but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.

When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he’s hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Easy by Tammara Webber was one of those books that came around at the perfect opportunity. I was having a super stressful week and no books sounded good at the time. Then I remembered Easy. I’d read a few very glowing reviews of it. So I bought it, downloaded it, and started reading right away. That’s unheard of for me. Then before I knew it I was halfway through the book and swooning.

Easy is one of those super compelling contemporaries. It was impossible for me to put down and everything was ignored while reading, including my husband. I can’t really put my finger on what makes it so awesome because the plot was fairly predictable. It just has that addictive readability that you don’t come across often. Plus, Lucas was super yummy.

I liked Jacqueline a lot. I liked that she went after what she wanted, but she was also venerable. My one and only issue with the book was the situations Jacqueline kept putting herself in. I didn’t find it believable that after being attacked by someone she would then knowingly put herself in situations with that person again. That’s something that I would never do anyway. Honestly, it was pretty easy to ignore. I was way too immersed in the rest of the story to notice too much.

The chemistry between Jacqueline and Lucas was off the charts. Really, I don’t know the last time I read a book with this much sexual tension. Luca was…sigh. He was a bad boy on the outside, but had a heart of gold inside. That’s my favorite kind of bad boy. Oh, and he was also wounded so you just wanted to fix him…and maybe kiss him…Anyway, the sexytimes were awesome! Easy was my first experience with the new adult and it definitely won’t be my last.

I highly recommend reading Easy by Tammara Webber if you’re one of the few that still hasn’t read it. You will not be able to put it down. You have been warned.

  3. This book is sometimes compared to Beautiful Disaster. I haven’t read either because I’m not into contemporaries. But I might just give this book a chance. I just love books with an amazing sexual tension between the characters! Great review!

  8. I loved this book! I am just like you and completely ignored everything while I read it. I read it during the summer, so I had all my kids home with me and I remember them asking for lunch – I held my Kindle in my left hand while I made lunch with my right hand. I couldn’t put it down. So great! Glad you loved it too!

  11. Okay, now I’m REALLY convinced that I’m the only person in the blogosphere that didn’t like this book. I couldn’t even finish it, I was so bored. I didn’t like either of the protags, and I felt like Jacqueline was sort of dumb (mostly for the reason that you mentioned – that she kept putting herself in dangerous situations). Also, I felt like she suffered from “everyone loves me syndrome,” and that sorta irked me too – that SO MANY boys were interested in her, whether they had noble intentions or not. Anyway, I’ve yet to find a new adult book that I like, but I’m still on the hunt! :)

  12. I absolutely adored Easy! I remember starting it one Sunday morning… And I didn’t move from my reading spot until I finished! The story is a bit predictable, but I think the writing is great, the characters are interesting and the sexual/romantic tension is SO ADDICTIVE. I’m so glad you enjoyed it as well!
