Summary: When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup. 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, stalked by her ex’s frat brother, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Her econ professor gives her an email address for Landon, the class tutor, who shows her that she’s still the same intelligent girl she’s always been. As Jacqueline becomes interested in more from her tutor than a better grade, his teasing responses make the feeling seem mutual. There’s just one problem—their only interactions are through email.
Meanwhile, a guy in her econ class proves his worth the first night she meets him. Nothing like her popular ex or her brainy tutor, Lucas sits on the back row, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. At a downtown club, he disappears after several dances that leave her on fire. When he asks if he can sketch her, alone in her room, she agrees—hoping for more.
Then Jacqueline discovers a withheld connection between her supportive tutor and her seductive classmate, her ex comes back into the picture, and her stalker escalates his attention by spreading rumors that they’ve hooked up. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Review: Can I first say that I am in love with this book? This book was un-freaking believable! And I mean that in the best way.
I don't know what I expected when I started reading Easy but it exceeded my expectation by far. I loved the college setting, it makes thing more realistic and mature to me. This book has a little bit of everything: love, loss, happiness, laughter, anguish, guilt. You name it and it's probably here.
I loved the relationship Jacqueline had with her roommate Erin. They definitely have each others backs and it showed a lot throughout the book. If anything this book shows the importance of having a friend or someone you can trust on your side. Something really big happens and I don't want to spoil it but it something not taken lightly and takes up a big chunk of the story. I'm so happy that the author brought this type of thing up and she played it out very well.
Lucas. I don't even know how to begin on explaining how I feel about him. He's the perfect combination of sex appeal, mystery, and a thoughtful and caring guy. Basically he's everything you would look for in a guy. I really got to find me a guy like Lucas but somehow I doubt he'll be on my college campus anywhere. Regardless, Lucas is hiding some secrets; about his past, who he is and the people he knows.
Everyone needs to go on Amazon or Barnes and Noble and buy this book right now! Trust me you won't regret it. Plus it's only $3.99! I'm so happy I decided to read this book instead of holding off till later as I originally planned on doing.
