Another NA contemporary that tackles a sensitive yet important issue, EASY grabbed me from the beginning and refused to let me go even after I finished reading it. My favorite part of the book was the characters. Jacqueline is not a perfect heroine but it isn't difficult to like her. She may be blinded by her love for her boyfriend Kennedy to set aside her dreams and align her academic plans with his, but I think that kind of love is not misplaced. She’s a good person, loyal to a fault and has her own identity. She has made bad decisions but she owned them and learned from them. Lucas is a total hottie. I almost always swoon whenever I read about him. I’d probably have a hard time choosing between him and Cam (of Wait For You). ^__^ Anyway, I really liked Lucas’s character. He’s mysterious, talented and smart. He protects and looks out for Jacqueline even from a distance, but not in a creepy, stalker-mode way. And there’s more to him than meets the eye. All that angst and mystery come from somewhere and Lucas’s story is one filled with pain and grief you wouldn't wish it to happen to anyone. The secondary characters are equally amazing. Erin is such a loyal friend. I love her wits and humor. Her concern for Jacqueline is also touching. Erin gives her strength and encouragement when she needs it the most. She stands up for what is right and is willing to give sacrifices for friends. Benjie is also a comic relief. What’s with the gay characters in books nowadays? Do they really come with built-in humor in the package? He’s really funny and adds color to the story. Kennedy, of course, is an important character. With all his flaws and jerkheadedness, he contributed a lot to Jacqueline’s change. In some way, he paved the path for Jacqueline to meet Lucas. Another character worth mentioning is Katie, president of Erin’s sorority. She’s mentioned very little but she made such impact on me when she gave her – and the sorority’s – support on Mindi. It was a beautiful moment amidst an ugly discussion: a woman standing up for another woman who has been wronged. I really liked that part. Girl power ftw! A major part of the book tackles the issue of rape. I understand it is a sensitive and ugly issue and one that needs to be addressed. I admire Mindi for standing up for herself, however difficult it is, and Jacqueline for finally breaking her silence. It is not an easy decision as both women faced humiliation and judgment from other people. But they made it through because they had the love and support of their friends and family. I believe it’s a major factor on finding the courage to fight for yourself: when you know that you are not alone in your fight. I think what rape victims need is someone they trust that they can talk to. And then it goes from there. The path to justice is never easy nor pretty but if you have at least one person beside you, that counts a lot. The lines are funny and quirky at times and heartfelt and intense at others. The balance between the romance aspect and the underlying themes of social issues is very well-executed. The mystery and the background stories of the characters are also worth looking forward to. EASY is enjoyable and romantic, but also very real and honest. It does not shy away from the main issue, and even suggests a way to prevent it from happening. I really liked the self-defense classes that Erin and Jacqueline attended. Aside from the humor (courtesy of Erin’s bloodlust for balls-kicking), those classes gave the women a way to protect themselves and prevent from becoming a victim. Reading EASY makes me want to learn self-defense, too. (Of course, it wouldn't hurt if the instructor is also as hot as Lucas. ^__^) My verdict: TOTALLY RECOMMENDED! Very good, very romantic and eye-opening, EASY goes straight to your heart and will make you wish for your own Lucas Maxfield (minus the tragic family history).show more

This is one of those books that I�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢ve heard a lot fantastic things about. So many that it made me incredibly nervous to read it. I�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢ve heard that it�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s THE book in the New Adult genre and that Lucas is the ultimate book boyfriend. So what did I do? I bought it then put it on the shelf never to think of again. Until a few months ago when I got given an audiobook copy from a friend. For the past month, I�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢ve been listening to Jacqueline and Lucas�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢ story one hour at a time whilst running around my neighbourhood. And I can see what all the fuss is about. Tammara Webber wrote a story with characters who have a lot of depth to them. They�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢re flawed and interesting and for the most part entirely believable. I wasn�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢t sure I was going to like Jacqueline at the start. She�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s a little mopey and heartbroken but there�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s so much more to her than her first impression. She�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s brave and intelligent and very hard-working. She�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s not one of those people who jump to conclusions and blame you for what�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s going on inside their own heads but she does give people the benefit of doubt. Her relations with her friends are real and relatable and the e-banter between her and Landon is rather entertaining. Lucas is the perfect kind of bad boy and I loved the way he treated Jacqueline however I didn�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢t love him as much as I expected to. This is a book with some fairly heavy themes �?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?? abuse, victims, rape and reputation �?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?? but I thought they were dealt with beautifully. I liked that it didn�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢t go the stereotypical route �?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?? Jacqueline is no helpless heroine but she�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s an everyday woman. Abuse is something that can happen to anyone �?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?? and I admired her for how she dealt with the aftermath. She�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s stronger than I first thought and manages to fight back �?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?? not just in a physical way but equips herself with the skills necessary to not be put in the same position again. Girl power! :D Easy is a book I�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢m so glad that I actually decided to read! It�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢s got realistic characters, a lot of romance and great storyline about female empowerment. I�?�?�?�?�?�?â??�?â??�?�¢â?¬â?¢m definitely going to read more books by Tammara Webber.show more

Favourite Quote: "Love is not the absence of logic but logic examined and recalculated heated and curved to fit inside the contours of the heart" I've heard a lot of hype about this book and since I've been really into New Adult recently I decided I just had to read it! And I really enjoyed it, 4/5 stars! Let's start with the characters, first there's Jacqueline who I really liked, she was independent, smart, down-to-earth and very easy to relate too. Then our other main character Lucas who I just loved, how could you not? He's a hero with flaws! Their relationship was sweet and I really enjoyed watching it develop slowly. But the only other character I loved was Erin, Jacqueline's best friend. The other side characters either werent memorable or just terrible people who I wouldn't have liked in real life. The plot wasn't unique I've read other books with a simliar plot like Wait For You by Jennifer L.Armentrout which I just loved, even more than easy, so check that out! Continuing with Easy's plot, I guessed all the plot twists and I wasn't surprised when anything happened but overall it was okay and dealt very well with the sentistive subject area! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try out New Adult, looking for a great stand-alone or just wants to read a book that features a more hard-hitting topic!show more

See also my blog on http://deskynowsky.blogspot.com/ I have to rate this book somewhere between 2.5 to 3 stars. The story was (for me) very predictable. I have to say that most (all) of my predictions had come true. So, unfortunately there was not so many surprises at all (at least for me). I am not so sure what to write on my review tho (I am kinda in my reviewing-slump period). It wasn't a bad read, it was just an usual one. The characters, hmm...... say I didn't really like the girl at the beginning (and at the end, I'm just Okay with her). I mean she was just a very typical damsel in distress kind of girl that needed to be saved and voila! there was ur prince.. So as the story went, it was just becoming more predictable. Talk about the guy, I am not so sure how to describe him without giving the spoilers.. At first I thought he was just too perfect to be true, a caring bad-boy-emo-good-looking guy with nerd-economics-engineering-brain-quality (who I thought can only be found only at a custom-made market, U know I want one), but no one is perfect, there was always a dark background story to this kind of character, which I think would be more interesting if the story kinda told from his perspective, there'd be more emotional twists... but well yeah just my random thoughts.. and as for other characters, I don't have anything to say, I think they were just alright character companions. The redeeming quality of the book was and still is definitely the issue it raised. And for that only reason, I think this book is a good read for many young female readers. It gave a general understanding of a sexual crime towards women and showed on how people (esp. women) might be able to handle or prevent it. The issue itself is already a pretty heavy subject if it was explored deeper in the story, but the book was heavier on the romance-story side so it was light and easy to read and understand.show more

My first thoughts on putting the book down: More please? Unfortunately, this is not a series, but it definitely would make me interested if there was a follow up with the characters. I don't think it is in the cards, but alas, I think this is just my way of expressing how much I liked the characters and how I was invested in their story. Jacqueline had my sympathy and my cheers from page one. She was a victim and watching her learn about herself and grow through her experiences touched me deeply. Sexual assault is something that hits way too close to home to me and also to probably many other readers. Even if not personally, through a friend or family member. We all think that it won't happen to us, and can all be surprised at the perpetrators at times. It can be people we know and possibly even love... I think that the message ultimately becomes, speak up, get help and stand together strong. It sounds simplistic, but that is really what people need to take away. It is woven beautifully through this story, and Tammara handles it with grace. Lucas is HOT. He is that bad boy and I want a piece of him, broken, secrets and all. The reasons he does everything is so important and even the moments where I want to doubt him, I still see it all coming together into a picture of a man, with scars, but with a lot of love and things to offer. As much as I like a brooding guy, he turns that into something new and even more awe inspiring. He contributes to others, to helping them while helping himself work through his issues. The secondary characters were also well crafted. Erin, Jacqueline's roomie, took me a second to warm up to her, but once I did, I loved every scene she was in. She was the right combo of supportive, encouraging, and fun. There was also Benji, who stole the scene in eco class. I loved what he brought to the story, whether a gay token or not. Then, you can't leave out the professor. It was neat how his story tied into "Landon's" and I was not expecting it. Then there is Kennedy. One minute I am thinking he is a butt, then I see a glimmer of the person I think Jacqueline fell for to start with, and then he goes on the rinse and repeat cycle and I want to Gibbs' clipboard to the back of the head again. So, obviously, I loved the characters. Tammara nailed them and I couldn't take my eyes from their story. This really was my kind of book--smoking chemistry, issues, a well done main character, and a love interest with protector instincts. Bottom line: Superb NA contemporary.show more

I just finished reading Easy and I have to tell you, guys, now I understand why the big fuss. It is good. It holds the perfect amount of drama, romance, hotness and misunderstandings to make the book irresistible. For starters the plot evolves around one of those things that sadly are still very taboo in our society: rape. I bet most of you flinched after reading the word. I know I did. Not just because it makes us, women, feel vulnerable but also because we know when its mentioned it comes with a lot of pain, rage and depression. That's why, after reading Easy, I felt the need to thank the author, Tammara Webber. I really hope she reads this because I've worked with girls that were raped and I know the suffering they went, and go, through. Ms. Webber did an amazing job portraying the different situations that could happen, not only to the victims but also showing how could the people around them react. And it felt real, all of it. The ones that supported the victim, the ones that tried to defend the rapist and the ones that justified the rapist' behavior. As amazing as it sounds the last two do happen more often that I want to admit. And I don't understand it. Rape is wrong, is hurtful and no one, girl or boy, young or adult, deserves to suffer it. But the author treated everything with elegance, from our main character Jaqueline who was about to be raped until a guy she didn't know saved her, to the romance that evolved from it. This knight in white armor has a name, Lucas. Despite his secrets, that are dark and very heart breaking, he is almost perfect. He doesn't only tries to protect Jaqueline but remembers her that what happened wasn't her fault and encourages her in the right moments. Like many bloggers out there I have to say that we all need a Lucas in our lives. He is the kind of guy that brightens a room with his presence just by being there. As for the supportive characters my favorite was Jaqueline's best friend, Erin. Very loyal, very strong, very protective; she didn't hesitate to stand by her friend no matter what. Then of course we have Kennedy, Jaqueline's ex boyfriend how, although he tries to emend his mistake of breaking up with her he does it very poorly. And the bad guy (very, very bad guy) Buck. He is the perfect prototype of the worst abuser: he could be your friend and then backstab you in a second. The romance was well developed too, it wasn't the kind of "Oh, you saved me, I'm in love with you" thing, far from it, Jaqueline tried to forget that night with all her strength but somehow Lucas just kept appearing wherever she was. And he usually looked or said the right thing in the right time. And let's not forget the making out. Because it happened, and I loved it. As I said, Ms. Webber did everything with elegance and these situations, after what happened to Jaqueline, are very delicate and Lucas was the perfect gentlemen. Overall, I can only say that I'm ready to read every book that Ms. Webber has write so far, I'm sure I just found a new author to love and treasure.show more
