Review: Easy by Tammara Webber

Publication: 11-6-12
Series: Contours of the Heart Book 1
Rating: 3 1/2 Bad Boy Loves The Good Girl Cherries


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.

I'm not really sure why I hadn't read this book before. It has literally been sitting on my kindle for about 2 years.  Well, I finally got around to it and boy am I ever glad I did.  I tore through it in just a couple of days.  This is the story of Jacqueline and Lucas. 

Jacqueline is a quintessential good girl.  She is in her sophomore year of college when her boyfriend of 3 years breaks up with her leaving her devastated.  She had given up her dreams to follow said ex to college and has no clue what to do when they break up.

Lucas is a college senior who has a dark past.  He is the bad boy hottie that everyone wants to have a wild night with but no one gets to have. 

When Jacqueline ends up in a rather precarious situation after a party Lucas comes to her rescue like an avenging angel.  This begins a tango of epic proportions between Jacqueline and Lucas.  They keep running into each other on and around campus.  There is something about each of them that they just can't get over.  Lucas has so many secrets that are revealed and unraveled throughout the story as he and Jacqueline get to know each other.  Some of his secrets were easy for me to figure out.  Others were harder to figure out and even harder to hear about. 

This story falls on the new adult end of the spectrum.  It has mild sexual content and may contain some triggers for women sensitive to rape or rape type situations.  As I said before I tore through this book rather quickly and liked it.  This is the first book in the Contours of the heart series and it is told from Jacqueline's perspective.  Book 2 is told from Lucas's perspective and is out now.
