Astonishing! A Must Read
I think you heard me say before that reviewing a bad book is the hardest thing to do for me. Well, I changed my mind: these days I'm having a harder time expressing my feelings regarding the books I love. And that's because telling you how hot was the hero, or how sexy was the heroine seems just shallow. I want to tell you more than just that. Behind each story there's a lesson we can learn, but in too many cases we don't highlight that to our readers. What if the hero wasn't hot and the heroine wasn't sexy? What's left of the story if that was the case? Would you still read it? That's what I want to show in this review: a lovely story that goes deep beyond the surface.
Easy teaches us that deciding to give up everything for the one you love is not a good choice. True love doesn't include the loss of your identity...and that's exactly what Jacqueline does. She gives up her dream of attending a music conservatory to follow her long time boyfriend, Kennedy to a state university, never thinking that they won't be together forever. She was already accepting her life as his attachment, underestimating herself, always behaving according to his wishes, permanently stuck in the shadow of her handsome life partner. But in an instant, all her life takes a dramatic turn and she finds herself alone, far away from home and from her goals.
"As for being somewhere you're not supposed to be--Maybe you're here for a reason, or there is no reason."
The second lesson shown in this spectacular novel is never judge someone by the way they look. And the best example is Lucas.
I had never noticed Lucas before that night. It was as though he didn't exist, and then suddenly, he was everywhere.
He doesn't have the same kind of handsomeness her ex has, doesn't seem to be as clever as he is, but he's hot and he gives away a bad-boy vibe - a thing that draws Jacqueline instantly in, giving the fact that she's only seen the world through Kennedy's eyes. Lucas somehow manages to be always in the right place at the right time, always helping, always saying the right thing and there's a whole lot more to him than just good looks and common sense (it may sound like I'm contradicting myself, but believe me, this is not the case). He's very complex, one of the best male characters I've ever met. Nevertheless, his background story will leave you breathless!
A full smile from Lucas
was so rare. Used to his ghost smile, dark scowls and intense stares, I was so
stunned that my breath faltered.
Jacqueline never thought she could fall in love with someone like him, but here he is, rocking her world in all the ways Kennedy could never have. She finds in him all that she wanted and some other virtues she didn't even think about.
The third and maybe the most important lesson I found in Easy is that you can always find a way to fix things up, even if it's not a smooth or an usual one. Chances can come up in the most unexpected way. You don't have to be ashamed or afraid to talk about your problems. This is for both Lucas and Jacqueline who, maybe in the end, would be able to heal each other. What do you think?
"Choosing to be with you, isn't a difficult decision, Jacqueline...It's easy. Incredibly easy."
But just because today I'm in a serious mood, it doesn't mean that this book doesn't have plenty of humor, mystery and a very uncommon love triangle. I give it a million stars and recommend it to everyone!
"You're full of contradictions, Ms. Wallace."
I looked up at him and arched a brow. "I'm a girl. That's part of the job description, Mr. Maxfield."
Happy reading! by Cristina Buzoianu
