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 am beginning to think that I was the last person on earth to read this book. It’s been out for over a year now and I always meant to read it. Ever since the first time I laid eyes on the gorgeous cover, I knew it was something I needed to read, and then the reviews backed up my first impressions. Unfortunately, life always seems to have other plans for me. Anyway, I finally got to it, and LOVED it! Too bad I couldn’t join in the crowds of fangirls when it first came out!
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see what fans love about the book. A protagonist who is so modest that she is blind to her appeal. A hot guy who is also kind and sensitive, and is willing to pursue the girl to the ends of the earth. Did I mention that he’s hot? It is, essentially, a sweet love story. There is a serious message at its core though, which is more than just a little important. No means no, always. So does “stop”, “don’t” or any other word or action that even remotely hints that your partner is unwilling or uncomfortable. There is no exception! It is unbelievable how many people need to be reminded of this. The moral of the story is wrapped with likable characters, realistic dialogue, and some romance and heat. It’s a perfect combination!
Easy doesn’t seem like the kind of book that is capable of having a sequel, but I just learned about Breakable, Lucas’ story, due out May 2014. I don’t typically go for this type of “sequel”, where it is essentially the same story but from a different POV. There isn’t usually enough new material to keep me interested. In this case, I might make an exception. Lucas intrigues me more than the usual love interest. I never knew what was going through his mind, so I’m looking forward to it. What about you guys?
