Meanwhile Jacqueline finds herself also drawn to a guy called Lucas in her class who played hero for her one night. Lucas is everything her ex isn’t he is a tattooed bad boy and may just be the rebound guy that she is looking for.
I had seen that quite a few people were raving about this book and it had been likened to Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, which I enjoyed reading so I thought I would try this book. I will say that there are some similarities between the two books. The story is set at college there is a tattooed bad boy, break ups, and a Thanksgiving dinner, but the characters are completely different. I must admit that I preferred the characters in this book.
This is a little bit of a spoiler but I would like to warn you before reading the book that there is a storyline of rape in the book and the main character does get attacked but not raped. I know some of you may not like this as a storyline and I feel that you should be aware of it before reading.
I preferred the first half of the book where Jacqueline is flirting with Lucas and Landon to the second part of the book that dragged a little for me and it is for that reason why I won’t be giving this book full marks. However I did enjoy Easy and read it in one sitting. I liked both Jacqueline and Lucas and I could really feel the chemistry between them. If you liked Beautiful Disaster then I recommend this book for you and I am going to give Easy 4 stars.
