Easy by Tammara Webber

Summary:(from goodreads) When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. 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, and failing a class for the first time in her life.Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night--but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.
Review: I thought this was a pretty good book. The plot was well paced, especially where the romance is concerned. I liked the slow buildup of their relationship, especially during the first half of the book. I really liked Jacqueline and Lucas and wanted them to end up together. They were both very well rounded characters. I thought the revelations about Lucas' past really added a lot to the story. My only real problem was that he romance became the center of attention and all the other story lines kind of fell flat. Jacqueline's music practices and escpecially the story line involving Buck. I felt like the could have been explored more and the story could have taken a different direction, which is kind of what I expected based on the summary. Overall, though I really did like this book.
