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.
"People rarely said what they thought, or revealed how they felt. No one was honest."
What can I say about Easy that hasn’t been said in hundreds of other reviews… Well, I can say I regret being so late to the party on this one. I had a friend recommend this to me when she read it back in 2013. and I can’t say why I waited to read this, I just got busy with other books. One thing for sure though is when I've finally read it, this book completely charmed me, and is probably one of the best college romances I’ve read in a while.
"Love is not the absence of logic
but logic examined and recalculated
heated and curved to fit
inside the contours of the heart."
This book had the ability to make me swoon one minute, put my heart in my throat the next, then literally make me burst right out laughing out of the blue.
"Erin: We get to beat the shit outta guys in those big puffy suits!!! I’ve always wanted to really kick the crap outta some guy’s nuts. Now I can do it guilt-free!
Me: You’re a sick girl.
Erin: Guilty as charged. :)"
Jacqueline and Lucas are amazing characters and they are so perfect for each other! I'm completely obsessed with their relationship and their chemistry is off the charts! There isn't one thing about Lucas that I don't like and I found myself swooning over him through the entire book. I mean, come on, he has tattoos, he rides a bike, he's smart and he draws. What's not to like?
"Ooh, J, he's got ink too."
"Just when I didn't think he could get any hotter..."
"Choosing to be with you, isn't a difficult decision, Jacqueline...It's easy. Incredibly easy."
I can say with absolute certainty that there wasn’t one thing I didn’t love about this book. And as much as I love books and love to read, that doesn’t happen very often. I wouldn’t change a thing about this read. If you’re like me and haven't read this one yet, I encourage you to make it your next read. You won’t regret it!!!
