Review: Easy by Tammara Webber

Synopsis:

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.

The Elliott Review:

This book was a completely addictive read! I had my reservations about it at first because I typically don't read a lot of self-published books since I am a grammar and structure nerd, but my sister told me I basically had to read this book or die because it was just that good. I'm glad I listened because it is completely professionally written and edited, and it most cruelly sucked me in right from the start. I love that this is more of a new (rather than young) adult title because it leaves some room for extremely steamy romance in the midst of the other qualities.

The first scene really grabbed my attention, and then the romance between Jacqueline and Lucas begins in a totally organic, realistic, and YUMMY way. Lucas is a tortured soul par excellence with his shaggy hair, tattoos, soulful eyes, barely-there smile, and semi-dangerous bad-boy mystique. As the reader gets to know him, it becomes obvious that he has many layers, all of which serve to make this book 100% delicious.

This is a book that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone who likes spicy romance AND angsty characters. Both of these things just hook into you and make you die.
