Before I begin my review on Tammara Webber’s Easy, I want to let the world know that this has been the ONLY romance novel (Young Adult or other wise) that I have read that did not mention the words “i love you” to/from the main romantic characters. I found myself waiting for it, but not disappointed it never happened. Obviously, since it is a romance novel you know the characters find love or whatever HOWEVER some might feel like you need those 3 little words to consummate and make real the feelings. It makes this book very unique.
I really enjoyed this random find.
The story starts off with a BANG. In a way this is NOT your stereotypical love story and in many ways it is. Lately, most books represent 2 characters who are “damaged goods”. That have been damaged by ex’s or by their parents or by some weird fucked up way not no one (fictional or non-fictional) should ever go through. This is no different.
The main character and the narrator of this story is
Jackie Jacqueline who has, as of the last 2 weeks, been broken up with by her almost 3 year long relationship with her high school boyfriend, Kennedy. They are both sophomores in College. She went to this college because he wanted to and sacrificed her dream of being a standing bassist at another college. They break up and all of a sudden everyone is interested in J. She gets a flirty e-mail tutor, she gets a frat guy stalker and a hot goth-ish guy who stares at her during class. (Side note for : the cover of the book gives too much away)
Lots of messed up scenes go down in this book. This books goes dark real fast. . Its fictional but its realistic and this things do happen in real life. However, its a good story. It’ll kill a couple of days. Or in my case, 1 day. Its a good read. I recommend this book for someone who likes romance novels but wants something a little different.
All in all, the book is predictable. I even had a moment where I did my “I called that shit. I called that shit” dance.
