Review: Easy

Title:  Easy
Series:  N/A
Author:  Tammara Webber
Publisher:  Tammara Webber
Pages:  318
Format:  eBook

Summary: 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 two months into sophomore year. 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, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night--but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.
When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

My Review:  I really wasn't sure what to expect with this book.  Before this, I hadn't read anything by Tammara Webber but I'd heard a lot about her work.

That said, I absolutely adore this book.  From beginning to end I was glued to the pages.

The characters were what really kept me at the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next.  They all held their own in the book and kept their personalities throughout.  Each character had their faults and were not perfect.  This made them easy to relate to and very realistic.

The plot was interesting and kept me on my toes.  I thought that Jacqueline handled everything that happened very well and, though I've never been through what she has, I could sympathize with her situation.  Though I was mad at her a few times; like when she kept what happened from her best friend.  She didn't let anyone know what happened when she should have been getting help and calling the police.  On the other hand, I could understand her embarrassment and humiliation over what had happened.

The only other thing that I really didn't enjoy was, in the middle of the book, the story began to drag a bit.  Nothing was really happening between Jacqueline and Lucas.  There were times in during the middle that I just felt like skipping a couple paragraphs.

That being said, I still really enjoyed this book.  The characters, setting, and (most) of the plot were believable and engaging.  I'm excited to see what this author comes out with next!
