Easy by Tammara Webber

   Title: Easy
   Author(s): Tammara Webber
   Release Date: May 24, 2012
   Publisher: CreateSpace
   Pages: 543
   Format: Ebook
   Synopsis(Goodreads): 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.

My Review: Wow. All I can say is wow. I picked up this book, like I have picked up many others, knowing hardly anything about it,except that Ginger at GReads! had read it and loved it. So I looked it up on my Ereader, saw that it was cheap, and bought it. And oh my gosh, this book is now my favorite!

This book deals with sexual abuse, and when I figured that out, I was a little hesitant to keep reading. Sexual abuse is a difficult subject, I wasn't sure that reading about it was a good idea for someone of my age. But I'm glad I kept reading, because this book was fabulous. The plot was fast paced and I couldn't put this book down. This book had a dark undertone all the way through that was addicting, and I loved it!

I loved our main characters Jacqueline and Lucas. They both had gone through emotionally traumatic things and I sympathized with them. Jacqueline had been dumped by her boyfriend and was assaulted by a guy she thought was her friend. And Lucas had gone through some very difficult things in his past. I loved the characters and cheered when they got together. I also really liked our side characters.
They weren't just put in the story because they needed to be there. They also had a purpose.

I felt that the writing style was what really made it all work. Tammara Webber created a beautiful group of characters and a story with a fabulous plot and a message. I don't think she could have done any better.

Rating: 5/5 worms!!!
If you couldn't already guess, Easy was fabulous and if you haven't read it you should get it right now!
