5.0 out of 5 stars Girl Power!, 27 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Easy (Kindle Edition)
Okay, I'm going to try and be objective here. Easy by Tammara Webber is... a great book. I heard about Tammara through the New Adult forum on Goodreads. I didn't start with Easy but her YA trilogy Between The Lines. I devoured it in three days: one book a night. When I turned the last page of Good For You (book 3), I directly purchased her latest (stand-alone) novel, Easy that had just been released (lucky me!).

And began another sleepless night...

What needs to be said first about Tammara Webber is the strength of her writing. It might not win her the next Pulitzer prize, but who cares... In my opinion, it is impeccable: fluid, strong, clean. She has a distinctive voice, and every one of her characters (whether Reed, Emma etc.. in BTL, or Jacqueline) sounds totally unique. That's a sure sign of her competence as a writer.

I don't usually like books that are trying too hard to deliver a "message." Most of the time, it is heavy-handed and clumsy. Yes, Easy deals with rape, but not the `attacked in a dark alley' story. It deals with this very fine line treaded by many, and those stupid words we often hear. "She was totally hammered." "Did you see how she was dressed?" "She followed him into his bedroom, so what else can she expect?". "She's so EASY."

Easy reminds us that: No is No, whatever the circumstances, whoever the girl.

Now, on a lighter note, I melted for Lucas. I usually don't like tattoos. I'm not a fan of the `artsy' look. I don't fall for guys driving Harleys... But he's a character I'll keep in my heart for a long time. The relationship with Jacqueline unfolded in a realistic and sweet (and sexy) manner.

It is a New Adult / Upper-YA / Mature YA novel, not just for the topics it deals with, but also for the way the author handles them.

Easy is about empowerment and standing up straight for yourself by doing what is right.
