Review: Easy by Tammara Webber



From Amazon:


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.  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 how to trust is anything but easy.

My Thoughts:


This is the first book that I’ve read by Tammara Webber.  I won this book from a contest over at fiktshun, and I’m sooo glad I did.  This book is amazing. Based on reading the summary, I didn’t expect this book to be as deep and romantic as it was. 

Jacqueline is a character most college age girls can relate to.  She is devastated by the break up with the guy she had been dating for three years, the guy who she changed her plans for so she could follow him to college, but once they got there he decided he wanted to ‘sow his oats’.  I love how the book doesn’t dwell on the break up between Jacqueline and Kennedy (who is an ass, btw) but is more about her starting over her life without him.

The book starts out with a life-altering moment for Jacqueline, which was an assault by her ex’s frat brother.  While she is trying to fight this guy away Lucas swoops in and saves her. Lucas is the sexy, tattooed artist who she also learns is very sweet and genuine.   I love the growth of Jacqueline’s relationship with Lucas, the romance was very sweet and it unfolds beautifully.

This book can get very emotional.  There are a lot of very deep issues within this book with sexual assault only being one of them.  I think Ms. Webber dealt with these issues with compassion which made it very realistic.

Easy is an incredibly heartfelt and emotional read that had me hooked from the very first page.  If you haven’t read this yet, you need to pick it up asap.
