Okay, let's get right down to business: Easy is one of the best books I've ever read. I finished it almost two weeks ago and I still think about the characters because I was on such an emotional roller coaster, fully immersed, while reading. It says something about a book that can do that do you. Easy surprised me right from the start with a very troubling scene of Jacqueline being attacked, making my heart jump into my stomach.
And I'll admit to being worried about how Webber would handle such Okay, let's get right down to business: And I'll admit to being worried about how Webber would handle such a delicate topic. But I think she did it very well and touched on many of the myths that are attached to rape.
But Easy showed not only how a victim feels after an attack, but how a family copes and how a community reacts. And if there is anything I've taken away from the story it's that I need to enroll in a women's self-defense class in the near future.
This book was filled with so many moments that just made me sigh inwardly or cheer on. The playful banter between Jacqueline and Lucas during their email exchanges was incredibly sweet. The scene where the sorority leader gave that speech on rape had me in tears. And the entire ending was just sheer perfection! But I will give a warning to some: There are a few disturbing scenes and if this is a trigger for you, it may be best to skip. It's been a while since I've added a book to my all-time-favorites shelf.
This book was so powerful, so amazing, so emotional. When Jacqueline was attacked in the beginning I was like: Then she had to endure being harassed by that asshat again and endure shame from the student body, I was like: At that point, I needed to take a break, because this book was tearing me up inside. Some of this happened: Okay, okay.
Maybe some of this too: By the end of the book, I'm in a glass case of emotions and I'm like: So basically, what I'm trying to say: The highest of recommendations.

Not one single friend rated this book less than three stars and I couldn't manage to rate it more than one. I feel like I read a completely different book from everyone else.
The only positive thing I can say about this novel is that it emphasizes the message that rape is never a woman's fault, which is an important message. But having a good message does not excuse awful characterization, unrealistic plot points, or poor writing. Incredibly long review that attempts t Well this awkward. Incredibly long review that attempts to justify my outlier rating. Brutal honesty ahead. My chief complaint about this novel is Jacqueline's unrealistic reaction to being sexually assaulted.
In short, it doesn't seem to have the kind of impact on her thoughts or behaviors that I would expect. She shows no fear or hypervigilance except when she's face-to-face with her attacker, she doesn't alter her behavior, and she's ready to jump into bed with a guy only two weeks after the assault. Instead of thinking about the assault or struggling to forget about it, she obsesses over her crush, Lucas, and her breakup with her ex boyfriend.
Even her emotions directly after the assault don't ring true. She worries that it was her fault but there are no accompanied feelings of misplaced shame or strong feelings of regret about her behavior.
When Buck sexually assaults her a second time she doesn't even think about reporting him or show any more concern for her safety with the exception of avoiding the stairwell where the second attack took place.
She even willingly goes to a party where she knows Buck is going to be, and when he threatens her, she doesn't leave the party. Instead, she proceeds to drink more, putting herself in a more vulnerable position. At one point she admits that the reason she didn't report him in the first place was that she thought that Lucas beating Buck up would prevent him from assaulting anyone again, a ludicrous assumption made even more ludicrous when he continues to threaten her and tries to rape her a second time.
Her thoughts are so unbelievably irrational that I couldn't connect with her character. The other characters also lacked any sort of dimensionality. Lucas, the love interest, is your classic brooding bad boy with a tragic past.
He even has tattoos, a lip piercing, and drives a motorcycle. Beautiful women throw themselves at him constantly and crowds part for him like the red sea. Women can't help pointing out how hot he is whenever his name is mentioned, even at inappropriate moments like during a discussion about rape.
Following the fold of YA novels, he has never had a serious relationship before, though he's hooked up with quite a few women, and he becomes obsessed with Jacqueline before even having a single conversation with her. He even fantasizes about "taking her away" his words, not mine from her ex boyfriend and creepily stares at her in class all without talking to her once.
The side characters don't fair much better. Jacqueline's roommate, Erin, never steps out of the supportive best friend role. Her chief purpose in the novel is to be Jacqueline's friend and encourage her relationship with Lucas. Aside from one other girl, the rest of the females are jealous, catty shrews who glare and smirk at Jacqueline every time Lucas talks to her. Buck is too stupid to live and unbelievable in his actions and motivation. He was downright cartoonish in his villainy.
And then there's Benji, the token gay friend whose friendship with Jacqueline springs out of nowhere. They have two lighthearted conversations and suddenly he's confessing that he's coming out to his father over Thanksgiving weekend. The setting also seemed unrealistic, partly because Webber gives almost no locational information. The university is never given a name, and the city and state where the university is located are never mentioned, only that it's in the South, which is a very large and diverse region.
The reader is also given little information about the characteristics of the university. There's no indication of the university's prestige, the size of the university, the size of the town where the university is located, the size of the campus, or the make up of the student body in terms of diversity, socioeconomic factors, etc.
It's these sorts of details that make a setting come alive and they were sorely missed. I also couldn't identify with Jacqueline's college experience because her university didn't sound anything like any I've ever heard of. She goes to a university where engineering majors are required to take economics, where professors assign seating in large lectures with two hundred students, where professors accept bad break ups as an excuse for missing a midterm, where a single professor can pull strings to a get a failing student into the school, where music majors take algebra.
There may be colleges where any of these things happen, but they're not typical, and taken together it was just hard to believe Jacqueline's college was real. There was a distinctly high school vibe about the school experience. Pacing was also an issue. There were far too many unnecessary scenes, which did nothing to move the plot forward and the plot felt very disjointed.
Plot points were brought up or alluded to but never fully explored, explained, or resolved begging the question of why they were included in the first place. Different plot points would be dropped at awkward times and forgotten about instead of being present throughout.
Lastly, the writing was very unpolished. There were a lot of awkwardly worded sentences, and a few punctuational and grammatical errors. I also thought many of the chapter breaks were oddly placed and some of the scene transitions were hard to follow, particularly those leading up to the emails.
Also distracting was Webber's tendency to recap action that happened during a time jump between scenes. While the dialogue wasn't terrible, there were quite a few instance where the characters would over explain things. At one point, a character speaks for four Nook pages straight with only a one sentence break. The novel was definitely in need of professional editing. I would not recommend this book to anyone, although clearly it was enjoyed by many.
There are far better books out there that portray the effects of sexual assault and trauma in a more realistic fashion. That's how it was for me, I went into this totally blind, I had absolutely no idea what the book was about, I think I read the blurb but it still gave me Wonderful! That's how it was for me, I went into this totally blind, I had absolutely no idea what the book was about, I think I read the blurb but it still gave me nothing.
And I am so glad for that! Anyway, I'll try to go through the most important things in the book. Prepare for a gush-fest!!!!! The classes they take together She sees him in class all the time and there are stolen glances everywhere and he keeps sketching things. Yes I know the stolen glances are so high-school, but they were sweet and they made me smile until my cheeks hurt like crazy: The dance in the disco That was swoony and hot and I think I totally fell in love with Lucas there!
Such an awesome scene, I'd kill to see it in his POV!!!!! Something you need to know about Lucas There isn't one thing about him that I don't like. I know he's written that way, and sometimes it bothers me when the have no flaws, but here it just didn't! Anyway, he bites his lip a lot and rakes his fingers through his hair and has this half-smile going on all the time. For those of you who get irritated with those things, you'll probably be so here, but me, NOPE!!
I loved it all, even with the lip biting and hands through hair and that half-smile that rarely went into a full one. At all! It is pretty unbelievable because she's so young and well, I am not a fan of reading about young people in books, but there you go. No getting on nerves from her.
So that's another reason I love this book! She does cry a few times, that I wish she didn't, but oh well, if I was ish and went through attempt of rape and several other things, I'd be a mess as well. Anyway, she just broke up with her boyfriend with whom she'd been for three years, so she's a mess there too. She starts noticing and avoiding Lucas at the same time LOL 6.

The sketching I loved every single scene that involved him sketching her, especially the first one!!! Her ex and the bad guy Her ex is a total jerk and I want to hit him in the balls like they did in the defense class. The bad guy is a total jerk and I want to rip off his balls like they did in defense class. There is something sad in Lucas's past Gosh I felt so bad for him: I thought it was one thing, but it turned out something completely different and even more terrible!!!
I want to hug him like crazy!!! The ending is great and amazing and wonderful and all sorts of mushy things I can think of!
Well, I don't think I need to say more about it: DDD I completely and totally loved this book shocker, right???? Vishous - thanks so much for recommending this to me! Yes, you have created a monster!!!
Fans of weak female protagonists. And it is perfectly okay to have your own opinion. But since this is my review, I take the liberty to judge the subject matter at hand from any and every angle I wish to. And my problem lies with Jackie's unrealistic reactions to certain events, behavior and her acute sense of low self-worth. Such heroines in any kind of literature do not help to boost the morale of our kind, especially the ones who fall victim to sexual violence or violence of any sort.
Hope that clears up why I hated this book. Now begins my former review.
She is conspicuously lacking in self-respect and a sense of self preservation. She is nearly raped in the parking lot while returning from a frat party one night by a drunken bastard. But does NOT report that to the police in fear of the party getting busted. And her peers blaming her for it. Goodbye logic. Because apparently in this author's world either there's no law enforcement agency or the heroine isn't intelligent enough to figure out the use of one.
Instead she enrolls herself in self-defense classes. That's pretty good and all. She does not even tell her room mate what happened. Instead of doing the obvious she is busy pining for a random hot stranger with tattoos and piercings all over his body and makes out with him without even knowing him properly.
Apparently when it's him she forgets all about her attacker and the trauma of the assault. And adding to the preposterousness of it all, this random hot stranger is not only her economics class mate but also her econ tutor who is supposed to be an upperclassman with whom she exchanges flirtatious mails but does not know they are one and the same person.
Uh what? He is an economics genius, looks like a badass with a motorcycle, works at Starbucks, can beat the shit out of creeps and play the knight in shining armor to this brainless bimbo in distress. I have never never come across anything so disgustingly cliche-ridden. It is at this point that I gave up hope for this book.
It seems that 'rationale' is not the author's favorite word. Had it been possible to give it a 0 star I wouldn't have hesitated at all. I wonder if the person who tagged this as 'realistic fiction' was being sarcastic. There will never be a random, sexy stranger who comes out of nowhere to rescue you from danger. Never give your tormentor a second chance to attack you. And keep a pepper spray bottle or a taser in your bag.

Overall this book is more about the heroine's journey to self-awareness than about her romance with the hero. Typically, I prefer romance centered plots to storylines involving the heroine's relationships with multiple characters.
However, this book not only Huge 5 stars I really loved this story but not for the reasons I expected. However, this book not only delves into the heroine's personal growth and her relationship with other characters, but also has one fantastic love story with a hot yet tortured tattooed hero, who is also extremely endearing.
In addition, the story is amazingly mature in dealing with sensitive subjects for a Young Adult book. Easy is a realistic, captivating, and simply fantastic book! I highly recommend this wonderful story. So somebody told me this book was like Beautiful Disaster but not completely horrible, woman hating and nonsensical. I snorted, thanked them for the rec and went on my merry way. So let me express this in the most calm and reasonable way I can.
It was, indeed, a really fun, lovely read that I highly endorse. View all 46 comments. Mar 02, Raeleen Lemay rated it it was amazing Shelves: Dear lord. View all 3 comments. Wow, really enjoyed it. A hot tortured guy who was obsessed and possessive of Jacqueline, but in a way that never crosses the line. He defends and protects her from a violent sexual rapist on campus, and gives her reason to believe that her decision to attend the college that her now ex-boyfriend chose might not have been a bad decision after all.

If you like a hero with some tats, a small lip piercing, and rides a motorcycle, you'll love Lucas. After the altercation,Jacqueline finds herself drawn to Lucas. He is a student in her economics class, and oddly one of a few she truly trusts.
Because she is so drawn to him, she lets her girlfriends convince her to play hard to get with him in hopes he could be a rebound man from her ex-boyfriend.
Too bad he didn't take class very serious, he spends his time sketching images instead of listening and taking notes. Jacqueline She soon finds herself a bit torn between Lucas and her online tutor Landon. Landon and her have never met, but he is smart, motivated and interesting.
They exchange a ton of emails, and he becomes an invaluable resource and help so she doesn't flunk out of economics. Campus Party Life The author did a great job portraying the reality of college life. Partying, studying, flirting as well as the risks and how to protect oneself. As much as I didn't agree with Jacqueline's decision early in the story, I do realize sadly how common that is. The story has quite a few twists and kept me fully engaged all the way through.
While the subject matter is rather dark at times, it never gets bogged down with the drama. The main focus remains on Jacqueline and her building attraction and relationship with Lucas. The romance story was the best part, and it never goes overboard on angst and self inflicted drama, as BD was notorious for. In a nutshell, this story really is about Jacqueline's journey after making her rash decision to follow her boyfriend now ex to his college. Wonderful things happen for her too, including meeting some great friends and the oh-so-hot Lucas.
She was a very likable character, smart and deserving of good things. Her chemistry with Lucas felt real. I rarely read YA, but this one is actually considered more adult in nature, and I agree. Think of this as a blend of YA with more adult material and some steamy sexual scenes mixed with some fade-to-black moments. The make out scenes get super steamy hot, but when it is more than that it will fade to black.
The relationship is right for their age and maturity, too. I am so glad I took the chance on this one, I highly recommend it. View all 67 comments. So easy to like, so easy to get lost into the story, so easy to get to the last page and wish for more You simply start reading it and the action feels so natural that you don't stop until you reach the last page. This is one of those stories. I liked her voice smart and funny , her strong personality - after what almost happend to her in the beginning of the book she still could pretend that her life was almost the way it used to; she still managed to keep her head up and confront whatever it was to confront.
Yes, she needed a bit of time to recover, but that only makes her human and that only makes me like her more. If I had to describe her in a few words I would say that she was really stubborn and she almost always knew what she wanted and how to get it.
Even though she still had some feelings for her ex she wouldn't have left him back in after that embarrassing break-up that's the spirit! She also has a great best friend Erin , a bit crazy but lovely nevertheless, and this made me happy because I love to read about good friends that can be there for each other. There was a lot of humor involved and that was also great because some topics were pretty hard to digest and my heart needed a few happy moments here and there.
I liked that he was spontaneous and at times not as predictable as Jacqueline wanted him to be. It still gives me goose bumps, I didn't expect it to be so horrifying, but it was and I wanted to keep him safe, to hold him in my arms forever and make him forget all the bad things in his life. I guess I am saying a bit too much, but I can't help it. He is the main reason I loved this book and he deserves every single thought I have about him. I need a tutor to flirt via email and I think that this smart guy might be just perfect for the job.
I loved the e-mails between the 2 of them - they were so fun and flirty and cute.. There is the need to move on, there is the need to forget, there is the need to start over, and what makes this story special is the fact that all these things fit so perfectly together.
You are not overwhelmed by them, but you can understand them, feel them. There was one tiny thing I didn't particularly enjoy: But between these moments he was mostly absent.
I couldn't fear him, he didn't seem to be a threat Also I don't understand why didn't Lucas just called the police in the beginning I understood why he didn't kill the bastard, even though in his state of mind he was pretty close to do it and I can't even judge him for that Still, without this fact we wouldn't have had a story to read, so I'll just let this go.
But I didn't like him, just so you know. I guess this is it; these days I am not too good at expressing my feelings for the books I like, but "Easy" is really good and easy to love, so I am sure that you will like it. Pick it up, read it, love it, and come back to talk more about it ; Happy midnight reading! View all 29 comments. I loved Tammara's Between the Lines series. I've read all three books in the series more than once.
So, when I found out she was writing a book with college aged characters, I was thrilled. Easy did not let me down. From the moment I began reading it I couldn't walk away from it. I cried, I laughed, I yelled and I cheered. It's an emotional journey that I wasn't expecting. This is one that will keep you up reading all night long. View all 10 comments. Nov 27, S. I am so stinking in love with this book!
It had everything I love—romance, heartache, friendship, a mysterious, compelling, sexy as hell leading man I may be completely head over heels in love with Lucas now. No, I definitely am. It also touched on a very serious subject in a realistic way that drew you into the minds and hearts of the characters. I could see myself reacting in the same way, having the exact same thoughts. I hope anyone who has gone through that same situation reads this book and takes her words to heart.
