Author: Tammara Webber
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.
I have to admit that this book has been sitting on my kindle for probably close to six months – I had heard so many people rave about it, that I bought it and then for some reason never actually picked it up. Maybe out of fear that it wouldn’t be as good as everyone was saying – because honestly, whenever I only hear good things about a book – and that was pretty much all I heard about this book – i am skeptical. But Saturday night when I was curled up in bed feeling sorry for myself while dealing with a sinus infection, I started to read it. And I was immediately sucked in…
I’ve only been out of college for 8 years now (give or take a couple of years), so lots of the visualization in the book – the frat parties (not that i ever went to any…), the classroom lectures, and even the teachers that assigned seating (yeah, I was lucky enough to get one of those…) brought back memories both good and not so good from my college days. You could obviously tell that Ms. Webber either works in a college setting, or is vastly experienced in it.
While I can say that I ever lived through what Jacqueline did, there was a level of emotion that I felt that made me feel like I was there with her. The one thing that impressed me about the book was how such a delicate topic like sexual assault was addressed and worked into the story, without the (for lack of a better word) absolute focus on the outcome of that – it was like it happened and Jacqueline tried to move on, which is kind of what I think I would hopefully do if ever faced with a situation like that.
Lucas/Landon made me laugh and cry – he seemed like the kind of guy I would love to be attracted to, rather than some of the d-bags, that I have been in the past (no further comments needed there). And he was a good example of how hard work (I mean, I lost track at the number of jobs that he had) will help you to succeed in life and that having money/connections isn’t everything.
Overall, I am glad that I finally read Easy (as I blow the dust off the kindle pile) and I’ll definately be looking for more books by this author in the future. 4 stars.
