Sometimes, love isn’t easy…
He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…
The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.
Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.
A groundbreaking novel in the New Adult genre, Easy faces one girl's struggle to regain the trust she's lost, find the inner strength to fight back against an attacker, and accept the peace she finds in the arms of a secretive boy.
What I Thought…
- I wasn’t really sure if I would like Easy or not. I’m not a huge fan of issue books, but everyone that read it raved about it so I picked it up anyway when I saw it on sale. I’m so glad I did.
- Right from the beginning of the book I was up in arms. Jacqueline makes a choice that had me screaming at her in my head. Unfortunately it’s a choice that is all too common today. Easy shows some of the consequences that can come about by making that choice.
- Jacqueline was as strong as she was weak. While some decisions made me cringe she made enough good decisions to make me happy. Easy takes place in a short amount of time, but you definitely see her grow and change, and start making smarter decisions.
- Lucas was… just ok for me. He was cute and all, and did cute little things, but he had a lot of baggage and I kind of felt like he didn’t need so much for the story to work. But that’s just me.
- Erin is probably one of my favorite BFF’s of all time. Everyone girl needs a BFF like her. Erin was completely on Jacqueline’s side, never waivered and stood by her principals, even when it kind of sucked for her.
- Jacqueline’s ex was an ass. Even when he was “doing the right thing” he was a jerk about it. Especially afterwards. It’s painfully obvious that Jacqueline deserved better.
- Even though it’s an issues book, it’s not shoved all up in your face, though Webber’s message comes through loud and clear. Date rape and almost date rape are serious issues that happen all the time, but go unreported because the victims are afraid. I feel like every girl could benefit from reading Easy. It goes into a lot of aspects of the situation, while sending a message that you shouldn’t be afraid to tell someone what happened.
