In a short blurb? We talk books.
Easy marks the second self-published book that I have read (the first being the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey). Thoughts on it? The writing is not as strong as it could have been, however, it is still incredibly easy (see what I did there?) to read and the story swept me away. There are not many books that take place in college. Young Adult usually caters to the high school scenery with Adult taking place elsewhere. I think that’s what the appeal to me was- I just graduated from college last May and I switch from Young Adult to Adult all the time trying to find an in-between for a twenties audience.
Easy introduces us to Jacqueline who made the dreaded decision of following her boyfriend to college (dun dun dun!). Predictably, the couple runs into problems aka her boyfriend breaks up with her after being exposed to frat scene and wanting to “explore” his options. Things rapidly go downhill when Jacqueline is attacked in a dark parking lot before being rescued by a mysterious stranger. What I really enjoyed about this book is that it mixes a combination of things that college is. Being able to balance classes, admitting that you need extra help, being heartbroken because a relationship doesn’t pan out, dealing with an attack and even learning self defense. To top it off, Webber provides us a heroine that is flawed but goes for improvement and a hero that intrigues both Jacqueline and the reader.
Easy is a fast enjoyable read and I would recommend it to the twenties audience. Read if you enjoy Young Adult but would like to see more mature concepts in your reading.
Be sure to tell me what your thoughts are if you end up picking it up.
