Book Review: "Easy" by Tammara Webber

Jacqueline isn't sure how she got to this point.  She has just started her sophomore year at college - it wasn't her choice of school, but rather her boyfriend's.  The boyfriend, Kennedy, who just suddenly dumped her two weeks ago.  It looks like she might fail one of her classes - something she has never been close to doing before.  Now, after a Halloween party at Kennedy's frat, she is assaulted an nearly raped.  Luckily, a stranger stepped in and rescued her.  Now that stranger, Lucas seems to be everywhere and Jacqueline can't stop thinking about him.

This came highly recommended by a friend, and I was interested as I haven't really read many New Adult books.  This I liked and read it in one day!  There was a lot going on in here, and I really liked how it went together.  Yes, one of the intended "twists" was painfully obvious from the start, but it all went further than that.

I didn't intend to read another book dealing with rape quite so soon.  (See:  All The Rage)  I really didn't know that was part of this story.  Here we are in a college setting, and the Greek system is heavily referenced (Jacqueline is not a member, but her roommate/best friend and her ex boyfriend are).  There comes a point where Greek politics tries to make a situation theirs, and it plays out in the way I had hoped.  This is as much a love story as it is about surviving and self-empowerment and being a truly supportive friend.  AND it has resources and an author's note at the end which I think is so so important in a book like this.

The bottom line is that I enjoyed this and thought it was a fun, light, entertaining read with just enough sexytimes for me.  I think I'd like to read more of this, or at least have it on hand when I just need a little something in between heavier books.  If you have any recommendations, please let me know!
