Review: Easy – Tammara Webber

This sounds like a great story to read… I just might do that, perhaps over spring break?? (: While I’m on the plane, flying–NOT for the first time– alone–FOR the FIRST TIME– to Florida to hang out with my sister and my mom 😀 (if I can find it @ B&N)

Easy by Tammara Webber

Rating: 4.9999/5 Stars

Genre: YA / New Adult / College Romance

Synopsis:
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.

Review:
This book was definitely an easy read! If you’re looking for a standalone book to read after a huge book hangover (or just in general), then look no further! This book kicks into gear in the first chapter. First!!! It captured my attention so quick, I finished this book in less than 24 hours. To be specific, I stayed up until 4am to finish… and had to be at work…
