Easy by Tammara Webber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I started this book last evening and finished it at four in the morning because I couldn't put it down!!! The story line is riveting. The bad boy hero Lucas is sexy, wonderful, and intriguing--all at the same time. The heroine Jacqueline appears to be the typical college co-ed in dire need of finding herself and not being so easily eclipsed by her ex-boyfriend in every aspect of her life. Although Jacqueline falls a little flat for me in comparison to our heroic bad boy Lucas, the overall character arcs for both of them kept this reader/writer entertained long enough that I was able to hang in there and look past this because of the overall depth of the story. The subtext with Lucas's own personal story is exquisite on so many levels that readers will be amazed by this particular plot line revelation and they definitely won't see it coming.
"Easy" is a gripping novel that explores the nuances and trappings of college life, the decisions young adults often make based solely on their life experiences or lack thereof. "Easy" also shows how an individual's life can so easily change or be redefined (good or bad) because of a single event.
Author Tammara Webber's deft exploration of adult subject matters including easy sex versus saying no, rape, violence, an individual's need for power and control, and the gender differences and perceptions that still exist in relation to all of these topics is powerful as well as bold. Nicely done, Ms. Webber! I Loved it! "Easy" is an awesome read!
