A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?
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.
First of all, reading Easy was trip of constant wondering and speculations for me. Because a long time ago, I read the blurb, heard the many great reviews of my friends about it, liked it and bought it. But with how many books I had to read, I ended up leaving it for later. Until now. But the thing is, I found that I had absolutely forgot what it was about.This has been happening to me a lot lately, and I made up a hobby of reading those books without re-checking the blurb so that it would be absolutely a new experience to live, full of exciting surprises. And let me tell you something, I am sooo glad I picked up this book again!! It was freakishly awesome. Loved every single little bit of it. Again, purely a big piece of awesomeness <3
The story was your usual good-boy-turned-bad-boy who tries to rape hot-girl-recently-dumped-by-her-3-years-boyfriend, then hot-girl gets saved by pierced-tatooed-smokin'hot-boy who's actually the unnoticible-student-in-the-backrow/engineering senior/economics tutor/starbucks barista/self defence vice-teacher/fixit guy/parking enforcement officer, and their absolutely forbidden love. Oh who am I kidding??? It was super fantastic, so addicting and such a brilliant story. Loved all of it -and man this is starting to sound lame! I think I say this in all my reviews BUT it's truuuue- this book is definitely on my top list of contemporary books.
And man like Erin would say, HOLLY FUCKBURGERS!!!! Lucas was so freaking hot, sexy, bad-ass, mouth-watering, smart, kind, sweet... and the list goes on forever. And like I mentioned before, he's pretty "productive" with his MANY jobs. Seriously how does he fit aaaall of that into his schedule???
And you wanna know my favorite part in the whole book? It was the last session of Self-defense class while teaching the class about the LAWNMOWER move. It was soooo hilarious, I loved it so much. And frankly, there are hundreds of other cool scenes and quotes, hell every single part is cool, but sadly I can't post all of the here. But I CAN tell you to go read the book. So go and do that everyone!!! You won't regret it ;)
Just on a side note, this book although being a young-adult book is a little more mature than your most contemporary books. And with that I'll leave you until the next review ;)
