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.
Some books are way more than just a read. Some books are an experience just from what they make you feel while reading. This was like this for me.
Easy is a strong novel about strong people. Really strong people, as I felt like I couldn’t shoulder half of what Jacqueline and Lucas did. Jacqueline is a girl with a well planned future: she will be side by side with Kennedy, her boyfriend of three years, and will follow him into the dark if necessary. But when they got into Kennedy’s choice of college things changed really fast.
Entering a fraternity, Kennedy dumps Jacqueline to bed other girls, and lets the girl who loves him feeling depressed for two long weeks, after which she decides to come back to life. But her experience in life without Kennedy is terrifying, as she suffers an rape attempt from someone she never thought could hurt her.
Rescued by Lucas, a cute boy who turns to be her white knight, she now needs to fight back to gain control of her life and fears once again as she also tries to pass a class that she is failing miserably, counting with the help of another cute boy, who she meets through emails.
It seems to be a cup full of drama, but Easy is a lot more than that (also, it’s not easy at all). This book braves through complicated feelings, through pain, through obstacles and setbacks, and through emotions we don’t read about often enough. And does it with a brilliant narrative, that makes you tear up in the right places and let you feeling the characters’ pain as if it is your own. It goes through difficult subjects without fear, and this is what I think writing is really about. Never fear the words.
It’s a book that made me think, talk about endlessly with all my friends and tear up again while doing it. The characters―not only the main ones—are believable and their life histories are touching. It’s all about the feelings, which seems fitting, as to feel is the most easy part of this book.
If you didn’t read it yet, don’t keep waiting. Go buy Easy right now and get in the line that is crazy waiting for Lucas’ history, Breakable.
