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.


My Review:
As soon as I read that Tammara Webber was writing this book, I got super excited. I loved Between the Lines and knew this would be just as good if not better. She didn't let me down. I was captivated and couldn't put it down, even to go to bed.

After being forced to go to a party by her best friend, Jackie walks out to her truck to kill some time while waiting for her girl friend to say she's ready to go. Then it happens. Her supposed friend attacks her. She tries to yell and get attention, but he muffles her cries. Suddenly she feels the weight lifted off of her and she scrambles to the opposite side of her truck. When she looks up, a mystery guy is doing quite a number on her attacker. Who is this guy and how does he know her name?

Out of the blue Jackie's boyfriend of three years breaks up with her. After two weeks of skipping class, her best friend, Erin, forces her to go to class. It isn't like Jackie to skip class. She's failing Econ because her ex. She doesn't want to watch him flirt with other girls and who could blame her. She's never failed a class, but she doesn't have the strength to deal with his antics. Jackie comes a long way from the person she was to the person she is by the end of the fall term. She's found strength and courage and learns to defend herself.

I loved how realistic Easy was. Sorority girls try talking one of their sisters out of telling the horrific tale of what happened to her because the person to blame is a member of the sororities brother fraternity. I also loved how detailed the story was because I could very vividly imagine how a scene went down. The content of the novel was so true to life. I've been witness to some of the common problems on college campuses that were mentioned. Most of all, I loved Jackie. She didn't give in to her ex-boyfriend when he wanted to get back together. She was so broken and miserable at the beginning of the novel, but she turned into such a strong person by the last page. She was truly remarkable. Oh, and mystery boy. He was a big plus too! I wish I had one!!! <3

Overall, this book went above and beyond what I had imagined it could be. It is one of my favorite books this year and I can't wait to see what Tammara Webber haa in store for us next. I highly recommend this to college students! There are mature scenes that aren't suitable for younger audiences.

This book! I've seen it everywhere since it came out! I haven't gotten a copy yet, because I'm a little hesitant about the content. I read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, which was pretty good, and so if Easy is anything like that book, then I'll probably enjoy it. I love books that are realistic! I love fantast and paranormal books as well, but sometimes it's nice to come back to the real world. I'm happy that Jackie is a strong yet broken heroine. It makes her seem more realistic as well. So, thank you for the review! My opinion is pretty much made: I have to read this book. Thanks for the giveaway as well!!!
