Jacqueline gets dumped by her boyfriend. Realizing, that she might have made a mistake following him to college instead of attending a musical conservatory like she’s always dreamed. Leaving her ex-boyfriends frat party, her head isn’t where it should be and she’s attacked and almost raped by one of the frat brothers. Thankfully Jacqueline is saved by a fellow student. A fellow student who also happens to be in her Econ class, and he seems to be starring at her all the time.
Not only can she not get him out of her mind, but he seems to be everywhere she goes. And so begins the epicness!
This story was self published initially and then bought later by Penguin. I had a copy from NetGalley to review and I’m not sure if it was the Penguin copy or the self pubbed one, not that it really matters. I loved it. This was one of those reads that was recommended by my blogging friends, after so many people telling me I had to read it, I did. And I should have done it sooner!
I was so in the mood for a girl meets boy love story, this delivered just that. It’s a “new adult” book. I’m not exactly 100% sure what the definition of new adult it, but these characters were college aged, the situations were a bit more mature than the average YA book, so I’m thinking it had something to do with that. Feel free to point out my mistake if I’m wrong!
I loved the characters and the story, it was so very addicting! It’s been a while since I’ve had a story that I just HAVE to get one more chapter in before I can do something else. I don’t remember how long it took me to read this one, but I know it didn’t take long.
Lucas is a “bad” boy, but he’s a polite and considerate “bad” boy. If that even makes sense! I mean I love a good bad boy as much as the next person, but when the bad boy is an super jerk, ugh that is such a turn off. Luckily Lucas is not like that.
I enjoyed Jacqueline’s growth throughout the story, she’s such a real character and wonderfully imperfect!
If you enjoy YA and looking for a story with a bit more mature story line and characters, I definitely recommend EASY!!!
