Synopsis

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.

“Choosing to be with you isn’t a difficult decision, Jacqueline,” he breathed, pulling one final time to stare into my eyes. “It’s easy. Incredibly easy.”

This book was breathtaking beautiful. Easy was all sexy, sweet, innocent, realistic and very steamy; all in one go. Tammara knows how to write a story that kept you on your edge of the seat the whole time. This book starts of very vivid and in s cruel kind off way where Jacqueline nearly gets raped, but some one saves her from this cruel rapist. She never saw her savior before in college but after she nearly got raped, she sees him everywhere now.

Love is not the absence of logic but logic examined and recalculated heated and curved to fit inside the contours of the heart.

Lucas knew Jacqueline from her Econ class and he liked her before she even knew about him, but she was dating someone at the time. Lucas liked her because she was real and not like the rest of those college girls. Lucas is what you would call a bad boy with tattoos and a lipring but he is smoking hot. This is my kind of guy!  Lucas also has secrets that he kept from Jacqueline because he was scared to loose her like he lost his mom.

Jacqueline was suppose to use him as her rebound guy but with Lucas’s heart of gold; she fell in love with him. The plan started off well but it all changed when she could only think about him and where she tries to figure out about his past and why he does all those jobs he has. She found out that he was lying to her about the tutor thing but that worked out quite well in the end. When Jacqueline told her best friend about the assult; Erin broke up with her boyfriend because he didn’t believe Erin or Jacqueline. He was good friends with the rapist. Erin signed them up for self defense classes and Lucas was also a teacher at the defense classes. Lucas is very protective over women because of his mother. I would love a guy like this!

“The night we met- I’m not like that guy.” His jaw was rigid. “I know tha-” He placed a finger over my lips, his expression softening. “So I don’t want you to feel pressured or overpowered. But I do, absolutely, want to kiss you right now. Badly.”

What I love about this book is it never got boring. You always wanted to know what will happen to snuck if anybody stopped him.  I also loved it that Jacqueline fell in love with two guys but actually those two guys were just one person, only different parts of him. What I did not like about it was that Jacqueline went to pry about Lucas’s past and she nearly lost him because of it. I loved how protective he is if th people he loved. This book was one of my favorites and I would recommend it to all but just to let you know it is not a dark story there is not a lot of rape, if you thought this book is to do about rape then you wrong. I really would say this is a nice romantic story of people finding each other.

“I noticed you the first week. Not just because of how pretty you are, though of course, that played into it. It was the way you lean onto your elbows when you ‘re listening in class, when something catches your interest. And when you laugh, it’s never to get attention, it’s just-laughter. The way you obssevively tuck your hair behind your ear on the left side, but let the right side fall down like a screen. And when you ‘re bored, you tap your foot soundlessly and move your fingers on the desktop like you ‘re playing an instrument. I wanted to sketch you.”

Why?

I loved this book the first time I have read it and I still love it. I have read this book a few times now and now I want to reread this book again 😛 This book is just sweet and I loved Lucas. I have a lot of book boyfriends. This is one good book that you guys need to read – that is if you havent read it yet and there is a book in Lucas’s POV as well named Breakable you should read that book as well! 🙂

I’m a hopeful romantic who adores novels with happy endings, because there are enough sad endings in real life. Before writing full-time, I was an undergraduate academic advisor, economics tutor, planetarium office manager, radiology call center rep, and the palest person to ever work at a tanning salon. I married my high school sweetheart, and I’m Mom to three adult kids and four very immature cats.
