Easy by Tammara Webber Review

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.
I  have recently come across YA Mature books.  These books are HOT! and are not for tween girls.  Please be careful when you select a book as YA Mature has sexual and controversial content that might not be understood by young readers.  My comparison would be NC17 movie reating.
Lucas has his eye on Jacqueline. Ever since the first day he saw her on campus, but Jacqueline only has eyes for her high school boyfriend.  Whom she followed to college blinded by love. When her boyfriend dumps her out of the blue to explore other women. (I wanted to kick his butt) she breaks down.  
Jacqueline is attacked one night and luckily Lucas comes to the rescue.  Our heroine is confused and pained by  her current situation missing school for two weeks and forgetting her world her pain is overwhelming.  Thanks to her best friends she reinstates herself but has to struggle to get back into class and catch up to her classmates.  Her professor agrees to help her by assigning her a tutor (Lucas).  She does not know it's Lucas because he uses his real name Landon throwing her off by a landslide.  
Outside of class she gets to know Lucas better and starts falling for him and slowly feels she's falling for her tutor as well.

Easy was a great read.  It is not your typical boy meets girl book.  Lucas is intriguing, complex and very intense.  He has so many things on his plate a student, barista, campus guard, tutor & boyfriend.  His physical attributes may confuse you but I kid you not this boy is swoon worthy.  I wish he was real
This book is empowering to women and has a great message which is a bonus for me. If you are looking for your next summer read.  Easy would be a good one.
I give this book five out of five hearts.
