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 who to trust is anything but easy.

Easy to Love

What I Loved:
First off, this writing in Easy was amazing across the board. I have no complaints about this book being so immensely popular. Webber knows what she's doing and I can only hope that having been picked up by Penguin will make all of her books easier to get a hold of for people like me who do not like to buy ebooks. In case the fact that this used to be self-published worries you, do not be worries, because this has been both well-written and well-edited. Oh, also, can I say how incredibly thrilled I am that the email and text conversations in this book did not involve any text speak?

Initially, Jacqueline frustrated me. Her newly ex-boyfriend, Kennedy, was so obviously an awful human being. Their relationship reminds me in every way of that of Elle Woods and her high school boyfriend in the movie Legally Blonde. A handsome, preppy guy heading for a sleazy career (lawyer/politician) dumps his beautiful, devoted girlfriend so that he can sleep around in college. On the plus side, that's better than cheating, but I had no patience for Kennedy whatsoever and could not fathom why Jacqueline stayed with him.

Thankfully, Jacqueline proves herself again and again. After the dumping, Jacqueline reverts to using her full name in place of the nickname "Jackie" that he gave her, a reference to the president he was named for and his wife (UGH, seriously, why did she not know he was awful before?). When he inevitably comes crawling back, Jacqueline's much more mature about it than I could ever be, remaining civil but consistent in her lack of interest. Heck yes, girl!

As is pretty well known by this point, Easy begins with an attempted rape, and that is a main theme throughout the book. Another reason I struggled with Jacqueline as a heroine at first was that she did not report the guy. However, I know that's completely realistic behavior. Thankfully, with the help of her completely supportive BFF, Erin (who I totally loved btw), Jacqueline manages to take charge of herself, finding new mental and physical strength. I loved that. Also, though there's a depiction of the dark side of the Greek system on college campuses, Webber does not malign it entirely. She kept everything fair, and I appreciate that, even though I'm one heck of a GDI and want nothing to do with frat guys myself.

Please, please, please do not judge the romance in this book off of the blurb. The whole bit about how "He watched her, but never knew her" sounds creepy as all get out, and, seriously, Lucas is not like that. He was in her class, so he would watch her there, the way people do when they're bored during a lecture. Since she was cute and smart, he would take note if he saw her on campus. This is completely normal and non-stalkerish behavior, okay? Lucas is not that guy; he does nothing a normal college student wouldn't do in the course of an attraction.

Obviously, I love Lucas or I would not feel the need to defend his honor thus. He's just a great guy. He does do a couple of questionable things, but, honestly, I'm glad about those because they made him real. Otherwise, he would have been in manicpixiedreamboy territory. He's got some darkness and makes stupid decisions sometimes, which is much better than if he were purely perfect. As with all the best heroes, he empowers Jacqueline, and helps her to be better in every way. Plus, he does not pressure for sex at all. Speaking of sex, wow. Webber can write a sizzling scene. Much as I love YA, I do get to missing a well done sex scene, and Easy definitely scratched that itch.

What Left Me Wanting More:
The character names. Buck as the rapist? Really? It's a bit stereotypical for my tastes. Chaz was another horrid name. You'd think at least his girlfriend would call him by something better. However, this is a seriously minor complaint.

The Final Verdict:
In case you didn't figure this out by now, I ended up loving this book, so much so that I devoured it in a matter of hours. I recommend Easy to those who enjoy sexy romances that tackle dark issues while promoting a feminist message.

A Great Read

I am really loving the new adult genre. It is fresh and new and I just love how many different tales there are to tell about college aged people. Easy by Tammara Webber was a fast paced book that tells an important story.

Easy deals with a topic that is so crucial to college aged students and shows the best ways to deal with it . Tammara Webber manages to get all this across while weaving a perfectly romantic love story around it. Jacqueline and Lucas's relationship isn't perfect - it is awkward at first and really changes as Easy progressed.

My one uncertainty about Easy was relationships Jacqueline had with different guys in the book. They never felt entirely authentic to me and there was one element that seemed to just be missing at times. Yet, at other times I just loved there interactions between Lucas and Jacqueline, thinking it was the most adorable thing ever. Their relationship was one that really was strengthened as the book went on.

It's been a long time since I've found a guy as hot and yummy as Lucas walking the pages of YA. It was pretty much a case of me crushing at first sight. I loved the focus on friendship in Easy as well. Erin is the best friend a girl could wish for! She stands by Jacqueline regardless of what has happened or what people are saying.

Easy was my first read by Tammara Webber and it will certainly not be my last. I was basically hooked from the start, only becoming more and more involved in the story with each chapter that passed. Easy was such a touching, heart warming story despite some of the not so pleasant things that happen within it. This is definitely one of those books I recommend everyone reads.

Having courage is never easy.

This book is just, WOW! EASY was my first book by Tammara Webber and I have to admit, the cover *coughs* guy *coughs* is what caught my attention. Yes, I realize that sounds uber shallow but what-evs, I'm a sucker for fictional guys with cool hair and tats.

I was completely caught off guard with how it began but it's such a powerful opening and sets the stage for the overall tone, plot and message.

Jacqueline has not only suffered the break-up of her 3 year relationship with her High School boyfriend, Kennedy, but she also has to endure his Frat parties because her BFF and roommate is dating his "brother". Sure, one could argue that she doesn't have to go with Erin but that's easier said than done. (Been there. Done that.) Adjusting to life after Kennedy is hard enough but nothing compares to what happens on Halloween and the aftermath. Jacqueline will discover who her real friends are and that the ability to defend yourself goes beyond the physical. Having the courage to speak up regardless of the social consequences can impact more than just your own circumstances.

I think my favorite character may have been, Jacqueline's BFF, Erin. I LOVED her! She made me laugh so hard I cried (on numerous occasions). She's bold, brazen and fierce. You definitely want her on your team whether it's at a Frat Formal or in a dark alley. She's the kind of friend who always has your back and takes no prisoners as is evident here --> "So when do we get to the junk-kicking?" ~ Erin

Kennedy is a self-absorbed prick. Excuse my "French" but there's really no other way to describe him. He's used to getting what he wants and yeah, everyone makes mistakes, but sometimes apologies come just a little too late.

Lucas is a knight in shining Starbucks apron strings with his cool hair, and tats. (Don't even get me started on the lip ring.) Wielding his graphite pencil and a 'tude that exudes "coolsauce", he seems the most likely candidate to play "Rebound Guy" to Jacqueline's broken heart but Lucas proves you can't always judge a book by it's cover. He has secrets of his own and it will take more than a few coffee breaks and make-out sessions *fans face* before Jacqueline uncovers them. Once she does, she'll be lucky if she doesn't end up heartbroken all over again.

This story is one of love, friendship and learning what makes you brave. (It's also a little about *punching/kicking/stomping fear in the junk*). I think every girl AND guy needs to read this because the message is so very important. "No" means "No" and it doesn't matter what you're wearing, or not wearing, when you say the word. We are responsible for our own action or inaction, both of which can have a farther reaching impact than we could ever know.

Good Points
Cover = *swoon*

Easy

Easy follows Jaqueline, the main character, who has just been surprisingly out of nowhere been dropped by her serious boyfriend after coming to college. Following the unexpected end to her relationship, her boyfriend's pledge brother and friend attempts to rape her, but she's saved by Lucas.

Cons:
Jacqueline and Lucas hit it off easy. Almost too easy. Jacqueline feels the normal guilt that follows (an attempted) rape. She feels ashamed, and like it was her fault. But, two weeks after, she's starting to get serious with Lucas.

What?

Her relationship (with or without the attempted rape, and her recent breakup) moved really fast. One minute she barely knows him, and the next, they're sucking face.

Lucas was just a stereotype in the making. He's considered a "bad boy," but aside from a sad story, tattoos, and piercings, he doesn't really have the bad boy vibe. And to make him more of a stereotype, he's obsessed with Jacqueline almost immediately, even though girls throw themselves at him. And he's never had a "serious" relationship before. And of course, he's an artist (who practically stalks Jacqueline).

Pros:
The plot moves fast, and you'll find yourself dropping the things you're working on just to read and find out what happens next. One plot twist happens, and then almost immediately after, another.

Throughout the whole book, it's emphasized that it's not a woman's fault if she gets raped, which is important. Jacqueline would feel guilty, and someone would tell her it wasn't her fault. And women should never have to feel like it was their fault if they had a drink, or wore a skirt.

Overall, I wasn't sure how to rate this book. Was it my favorite? No. Easy had a few flaws, but the pace was right, so if you read the plot and you like it, then read it. But, I won't go out of my way to recommend this to anyone.

Superb NA contemporary.

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.

It was written with elegance and I loved it

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.

Easy by Tamara Webber

Easy was just that; an easy, thrilling read. From the moment I first cracked open the book, I was enthralled and couldn't wait for more. What I loved most about it, was how it not only took me on a thrilling ride in the world of fiction, but also taught me a lesson as a woman. Books with lessons always seem to score big with me.
Jacqueline goes to college with her boyfriend of three years and thinks that her life is amazing. That is, until he joins a fraternity and breaks up with her with the lamest, most BS excuse he could think of. She is left single at a university (where she was never supposed to be) with few friends. One night leaving a party, her ex's frat brother physically assaults her outside in her truck. Her world is then turned upside down by the dude who swoops in and saves her out of the blue. They have more in common than they realize and as they learn more and more about each other, their worlds melt together to finally paint their picture of happiness.
What I liked most about this book was the lesson it taught. Too many times books feature women as small creatures that can't or won't do anything to protect themselves. This book centers on Jacqueline keeping herself safe. There were so many things I was upset at her about at first, but towards the end I felt better when I saw that her character had grown and gotten smarter. I also liked how it showed her able to go on. I loved how she didn't just shut down after the attack and let him win. It portrayed her as empowering, something that isn't really depicted in novels, especially YA ones.
Another thing I liked about this book was the characters. Erin more specifically. She was the exact replica of a best friend. I loved how she took Jacqueline's side and didn't make it seem as if she was at fault, even when others did. And of course I loved hot ass *ahem* I mean, Lucas. Besides the fact that he was incredibly hot, with a lip ring, and covered in tattoos, he was also caring and understanding. I felt so bad for him for being so guarded, but when I finally got his story, I was heartbroken and I could tell why.
Although this story was a work of fiction, it was so beautifully crafted it made the book a perfect realistic fiction rendition. I was fully pulled into Jacqueline's world and I felt every emotion she had. I loved how Webber was able to balance Jacqueline's emotions. She was assualted, but in the end, she wasn't afraid to fall for Lucas. I viewed this as her not being afraid to move on with her life.
Easy was a moving read and caused me to push back "life" quite a bit. I was too wrapped up in J's life to remember to do certain things in my own. I appreciate the life lesson to women and the wonderful story Webber put together.

I LOVED THIS!

I was sucked into this book from Chapter 1. The characters were intense and interesting, and I felt like I automatically connected to Jacqueline. She was smart and fun, yet she just found herself in a dangerous situation.

And the guys...so swoon-worthy. Lucas comes off as this bad boy, but he's gentle at heart. But, still, his kick butt attitude and killer smile will make you melt.

I'm a huge fan of the New Adult genre, and Easy was the perfect book in this category. I loved the plot, there was never a dull moment. But even more, her characters were full and emotional--you could feel their emotions on every page.

Content Warning: Rape, Sex, and Alcohol.

Easy indeed


A really good read. One gets thrown into the deep end right in the beginning and while the first few pages set a tone for the book, they dont overshadow it. Its an interesting and realistic take on serious issues. There weren't many surprises, one can predict quite a bit that comes, but it doesnt really matter the journey there is interesting and captivating.

Jaqueline is a great MC, one can totally relate to her. She's reflects a lot of young women in my opinion, especially in the beginning. She tries her very best to be nice, puts others in front of her interests. Then through the difficulties she encounters - the break up with her boyfriend to start with- she is forced to grow and take on life to her best abilities. which she does after a couple of weeks of moping.
Most of the characters are very realistic and get more and more depth as one gets to know the through the book.

Which is exactly one of the things i loved about this book. It is like meeting a new circle of people, one get to know them slowly and as time goes by one learns more and more new things about them. The different relationships between them is another thing that made this book a great read.

I really love Webbers way of writing; its straight forward, captivating and with much insight. Im looking forward to many more books of her!

great writing style, interesting characters
