Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret
Sometimes, love isn't easy...
He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior...
The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he'd worked so hard to overcome, and the future she'd put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.
Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth - and find the unexpected power of love.
A groundbreaking novel in the New Adult genre, Easy faces one girl's struggle to regain the trust she's lost, find the inner strength to fight back against an attacker, and accept the peace she finds in the arms of a secretive boy (from Goodreads).
Sometimes I am just really in the mood for a soppy, emotional read. I had heard good things about Easy but had very little clue what it was actually about. Let me state right here that something going into a book completely ignorant is the best way as you allow the book and the characters to surprise you. Because of this, I am going to try not to go into too much detail as I really want you to have the same experience I did with this book.
I also didn't realize that Easy is actually classified at New Adult, which would make this my first official New Adult review!
Right, so I started this last night and flew through it, finally putting the completed book down just before midnight. What a freaking ride! There are characters worth loving and characters you want to beat into a pulp. There are wild emotions and gorgeous sexy moments that will leave the more prudish reader feeling a little hot and bothered.
If Sarah Dessen had to write something for the NA market, I imagine it would be something like this. And that is saying something as I am a HUGE Sarah Dessen fan.
I loved this book. It is worth every single moment and I know that I will be revisiting it at some stage.
Do pick this up! But remember that it is not a suitable read for younger readers, even though it gets stuck in the YA section in most bookstores!
