Easy by Tammara Webber Review

 Easy book cover

Easy
By Tammara Webber

Publication date: May 25, 2012
Kindle edition, 304 pages
Source: Purchased

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.

I bought Easy by Tammara Webber for my Kindle. I loved it so much that I’m going to buy a paperback copy too so I can more easily skip to the good parts when I want to reread.

SO YOU KNOW I’M SERIOUS.

Easy is perfect for anyone who loves a love story, and especially for those of you who love when two messed up kids somehow find each other, despite all the insanity in their lives. Phew, there was a lot of drama, and it was a crazy ride…but boy was it fun! And steamy. Very steamy.

And three cheers for new adult fiction! There are not enough books set in college out there…and if there are, goodness gracious, people, recommend them to me! Plus, Jacqueline has a super-supportive, loving best friend. Not enough of that in books either.

Oh, man, the good things about this are endless. Easy by Tammara Webber is a fun, easy and exciting story that is a must-read for anyone who loves a slightly tortured love story. My favorite!

    Saving Ruth by Zoe Fishman is a “new adult” novel I guess. It’s set during a college freshman’s first summer at home. I really liked it a lot. More about body image and relationship with her family than romance but a really really great book with high impact. I have this one on my Nook thanks to Ginger but still have not gotten around to reading it. I need some steamy so perhaps soon! 😉

    I have this one on my kindle to read too. I intended to read it over my vacation, but instead got caught up on netgalley books. I felt guilty for needing to get to those. So – Easy will be read soon-ish. 🙂

    I’ve been seeing reviews for this book going up around blogland and I can’t wait to read it for myself. It’s going to be my reward book, I need to knock some review books out before I can read this one.

    Thanks for the review, I’m even more anxious to read this book. 🙂

    I absolutely adored Easy! I literally read it from start to finish one Sunday morning, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it for a while. It’s absolutely lovely and the romance is just perfection!

    I agree with you! I am re-reading it just because I went through it so fast the first time.

    Absolutely loved the character of Lucas. So different from the leading men in books.

    I LOVED this book! I initially looked at it because of you adding it as to-read on GoodReads. I loved every minute of it and I agree, I ordered the paperback right after I read it!!! My favorite parts are that he asks her to tell him to stop, like he doesn’t trust himself to stop on his own. That absolutely kills me. And tattoos, oh how I love tattoos.
    I don’t know if your Kindle recommended Almost by Anne Eliot after you finished Easy, but mine did. I just finished it and it was just as amazing. I highly recommend.

    One of my favorite “New Adult” fiction works is “Flat-Out Love” by Jessica Park. I just found your blog today and you very well could have read this book already but you have to check it out. Amazon describes it “Flat-Out Love is a warm and witty novel of family love and dysfunction, deep heartache and raw vulnerability, with a bit of mystery and one whopping, knock-you-to-your-knees romance.

    It’s not what you know–or when you see–that matters. It’s about a journey.” its seriously good!

    It is hard to dispute the fact that car shopping is a stressful, anxiety-ridden task for many individuals.
    The sheer size of the expenditure involved and the myriad of choices on the
    market make the need for education and information quite critical.
    Fortunately, the tips below can make the process far simpler than you may have believed.
