Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret.
He always saw 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.
I hadn't even heard of this book until I got an email about it but when I went to Goodreads to see what it was about, 95% of my friends who had read it had rated it five stars with glowing reviews. And now I will join them.
Easy was amazing. Holy meatballs. It was so good.
This was my first taste of "new adult" and it certainly won't be my last. (Any recommendations for me?!) Though I love my young adult, I'm a big fan of the boundaries that new adult can cross. And yes, I'm talking about the steaminess. The steaminess was very, very ... steamy. And sexy.
And that cast of characters! I absolutely loved them all! (Except Buck and Kennedy, of course!) Jacqueline was a wonderful protagonist, but Lucas totally stole the show. His on-and-offness kind of irritated me until I found out why but other than that, I was a swooning, melting mess whenever his character had any dialogue. And I really enjoyed the fact that Erin, Jacqueline's best friend, didn't fit the stereotypical ditzy, boy-crazy role. She was so supportive and smart and hilarious and I'm so happy that Tammara Webber showcased a real friendship.
And GIRL POWER WOOOO. Though she had her damsel in distress moments, I thought that Jacqueline was absolutely kick-ass and awesome.
Overall, it's hard to sum up my love for Easy with words. This review doesn't do it justice at all. It's emotional, sexy, romantic, powerful and one of the best contemporary novels I've read this year. I urge you all to check it out!
