Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret
Sometimes, love isn’t easy…

He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.

A groundbreaking novel in the New Adult genre, Easy faces one girl's struggle to regain the trust she's lost, find the inner strength to fight back against an attacker, and accept the peace she finds in the arms of a secretive boy.

I finally read Easy! I get it now, I really do. I’ve witnessed all the love this book got from so many people, and I can say that I understand why, especially when it comes to Lucas. I may not have wanted to go to the highest mountain and scream at the top of my lungs my love for this book, but I did like it a lot. Since it’s pretty much unanimous that Easy rocked many socks off, I’m just going to list a few things I loved about it.

The POV – I’m happy that this was told strictly from Jacqueline’s perspective. I usually like to get at least a little bit from the guy, but I think not getting his in this book worked better.

CharactersEasy has some great character development!

  • Jacqueline – I really liked her. At first I was upset about something she didn’t do, but I completely understand how her reaction is realistic. It’s just really sad. However, I loved how much she grew and learned over the course of this book; she became more confident and found her voice. How could I not be proud of that?
  • Lucas – Yep, he is without a doubt a wonderful guy. Everyone needs a Lucas. Everyone. He was instrumental in Jacqueline’s transformation into a strong woman, physically, emotionally, and mentally. He may be a bad boy on the exterior, but the guy knows how to treat a woman. All women. But he has his own demons, and they are heartbreaking.
  • Erin – Now that is a friend. I was beyond happy with her and her support of Jacqueline. She is without a doubt the kind of friend you want in your corner. Her enthusiasm for the self-defense class had me laughing.
  • Kennedy – Okay, okay … hear me out. Yes, he made a douche move, but I actually respect him for being open and upfront with Jacqueline. I completely understood his point and supported his reasoning, even though it sucked for Jacqueline. I think he learned lot from the various mistakes he made and will become a better person for it.

PlotEasy deals with some serious subject matters, but it doesn’t feel terribly overwhelming. It takes you through various emotions, and the author did a great job balancing everything out.

Everything else – Yeah, pretty much everything about this book was executed really well.

So yes, I am now an Easy fan and definitely plan to read Breakable, which is Lucas’ story.

      I love it so much when girls in this book are so supportive. That certain character from the sorority totally surprised me. I was like “hell yeah, girl power!” lol.

      This is a time that I was glad I was peer pressured into reading book. It’s actually a more positive and healthier book in the NA genre. 🙂

      Heck yeah they are. And yes, I agree that it’s a book everyone should read. I think it’s a positive and healthy, which isn’t always the case in NA.

  1. YAASSS! I loved this book. It was one of the first NA books I ever read, and I immediately went and read everything else by Webber that I could find. SO glad you liked it too. I’m also planning on reading Breakable, but it’s going to have to wait until I can dwindle my arc pile a bit . . . Great review, Christy!

      I resisted the NA genre at first, so all these books that people loved in the beginning of the craze, I’m just now getting to. 🙂

  2. This ones on my list too! (I kept hearing at ton about it, but then a friend read it, and I trust her, so added it to my TBR.) It really does sound good though, and mine always rests on the characters, and it does sound like there is some great character growth and I can’t wait to meet Lucas. 😉

  3. YEAH CHRISTY!!!! I’m so glad you finally got a chance to read this one and loved it:) This was my first NA book so it will always have a special place on my shelf, and I just adored it. I still need to read Breakable, can’t wait to compare notes with you!

      I was really happy that the love interest was such a GOOD guy. I love my a-holes, but Lucas was so wonderful.

  4. I feel HORRIBLE because i feel like i’m the only one on earth who LIKED this book but didn’t LOVE it! i mean it was great like you mentieond the character development for this one was on point but something still felt off about this one. Maybe it was the writing style or the fact that so many NA’s have the same sort of vibe? I don’t know! Either way i liked it i’m just not head over heels for it like almost everyone else is!
    Glad you liked this one though!

      I totally know what you mean. I think this is definitely one of the better one in NA, though. The relationships were all done really well.

      I haven’t read Hopeless, but from what I understand, Breakable doesn’t only follow the storyline of Easy. There’s a lot more to it.

      lol – Well, I’m glad I’m introducing it to someone. I thought I was one of the last to read it. 😉

  5. Read this baby back in 2012 I think. I liked it, especially since the NA thing was so shiny and new, but I wasn’t head over heels for it. Maybe I’m just not much of contemporary lover, I dunno. It was a good read, enjoyed it, sure, but nothing close to going fangirl over it though.
    Haven’t read the second, for instance, and I don’t really think I want to at this point. Maybe later on though, who knows, right?

    Glad you enjoyed it!

  6. Yep, I do need to read this one. I have been putting it off for no real reason. It was a book that I got ages ago but never got around to and it has since been buried. Glad that it had good characters and that even though it was tough subject matter that the author did a nice job with it.

    Great review Christy!
