Easy by Tammara Webber Review
Easy - Tammara Webber

Goodreads Synopsis: 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:

 

Easy was one of those books that I’ve had on my tbr for forever, has got amazing reviews, and I thought I just need to read this book already! Of course with such high initial expectations comes the disappointment. Don’t get me wrong I did enjoy this book very much but there was something lacking.

 

Lets start with the positives…..I loved her best friend!! She was so supportive of Jacqueline when she told her what happened with Buck and even broke up with her boyfriend because he wasn’t taking the situation seriously, major best friend goals! A lot of times in YA and NA stories there is drama created between friends for stupid reasons but this story dealt with strong female friendships which was refreshing.

 

This story also deals with the subject of rape and the author conveyed this issue in a respectable manner. I loved the message this story portrayed about how important it is for us girls to stick together and rally behind one another when it comes to getting justice for this horrible offense. There is still a lot of stigma around this issue which makes it difficult for victims to speak up out of fear of slut-shaming which shouldn’t be the case.

 

I did feel the story was a bit predictable and the main characters decisions seemed to revolve around boys - she followed her high school boyfriend to the college of his choice, didn’t go to a lecture for 2 weeks because of break-up with said boy, didn’t want to go to tutoring sessions because another boy might be there….you get the picture. I also felt she should have been more aware of her surroundings after what happened with Buck, especially as he showed no remorse and any time they crossed paths he was being really creepy, is that not just common sense?

 

I did give this 4 stars as I did really enjoy the book and couldn’t put it down until I had it read, however there was something missing for me. At times I expected big confrontations between characters but they never happened. I was definitely expecting more from the story but I can’t fault how much I enjoyed it. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a fast, easy read, with a cute romance.

Breakable (Contours of the Heart #2) by Tammara Webber
Breakable - Tammara Webber

Forgot to mention that I started this book last night, so I just finished up the last bit of it today.

I read Easy by Tammara Webber last year and I really loved this. And as much as I loved Lucas, I didn’t like this book much at all.

Facts that I already knew about Lucas were discussed in this book as well. I felt

Maybe this is because I’ve already read Easy and know what the story is, and even though we get to see Lucas and Jackie’s story from his point of view, I didn’t really care. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think that companion books are for me.

Also, in my opinion, Easy and Breakable can count as a duology, but I’m not continuing with the next book, Sweet, I think it’s called because it’s centered around characters that I’m not really enthusiastic to read about.

Das Ende ist überraschend toll! Leider zieht es sich bis dahin
Between the Lines: Wilde Gefühle - Tammara Webber,Anke Brockmeyer

Die sonst so normale Emma hat das unheimliche Glück, in einem Blockbuster neben dem absoluten Traum aller Mädchen, Reid Alexander, die Hauptrolle zu spielen. Jede andere würde vermutlich vor Freude durchdrehen, doch ihr ist das normale Leben eigentlich viel lieber. Trotzdem spielt sie ihre Rolle gut, vor allem, weil es zwischen ihr und Reid so sehr knistert. Allerdings existieren ihre Gefühle nicht nur für Reid alleine, denn da ist ja auch noch Graham im Spiel und als sich Reid dann DAS Ding erlaubt, was er wohl hätte lassen sollen, spielen diese besagten Gefühle ganz verrückt. Denn auf einmal ist nichts mehr, wie es war. Und es wird noch ganz anders ...

Dass ich nun so lange für das Buch gebraucht habe, liegt nicht nur alleine an der Tatsache, dass sich das Buch so gezogen hat, aber das tut nicht viel zur Sache. Denn es ist nun mal wie es ist, die Geschichte konnte mich erst zum Schluss fesseln.
In jedem Kapitel lesen wir zuerst aus Reids und dann aus Emmas Sicht. Das fand ich schon super, denn so konnte man sich super in die Gedanken der Protagonisten reinversetzen und teilweise mit ihnen fühlen, allerdings hätte ich sehr gerne auch von Graham gelesen, immerhin war er ja auch eine Hauptfigur. Es ist ziemlich schnell klar, dass sich Reid in Emma verliebt hat, aber trotzdem verhält er sich selten so, wie er es hätte tun sollen und damit hat er keine Sympathiepunkte bei mir ergattern können. Für mich war er das Ar***loch, wie es im Buche steht. Manchmal steht man ja auf diese typischen Bad-Boys, aber dieses Verhalten ging gar nicht. Emma fand ich für ihr Alter recht gelungen und Graham war einfach toll. Hätte sich Reid vielleicht mal ein paar Scheiben von abschneiden sollen.

Ich habe von Tammara Webber bereits schon mal ein Buch gelesen, allerdings gefiel mir dieses besser, ... inhaltlich. Dieses hier war wohl nicht schlecht, aber ich hatte kein Problem, wenn ich mal einen Tag nicht gelesen habe. Eigentlich glaubte ich, mir das Ende eh zusammenreimen zu können und war sogar schon im Begriff, abzubrechen. Doch die letzten 20 % änderten dann meine Meinung und überraschten mich positiv. Emma bekam also ihr Happy End - aber eben nicht wie gedacht. Finde ich toll.
Zum Schreibstil kann ich nur sagen, dass er ebenfalls anders als erwartet war, denn ich hatte Tammara Webber ganz anders in Erinnerung, was auf keinen Fall negativ gemeint ist.

Im Ganzen ein tolles Buch, doch trotzdem habe ich etwas mehr erwartet.
Fortsetzung? Vielleicht. Ich bin mir noch nicht sicher, aber irgendwie würde ich ja schon gerne von Graham weiter lesen .... Immerhin wollte ich ihn ja kennenlernen. Wird das passieren?

Mogłoby być lepiej
Tak slodko... - Webber Tammara
Po przeczytaniu pierwszej książki pani Webber, która nosi tytuł ,,Tak blisko..." byłam zachwycona. Opisana tam historia tak bardzo mi się spodobała, że czytanie kolejnego jej dzieła pt. ,,Tak krucho..." wcale mnie nie nudziło. Mimo, że była to ta sama opowieść, tylko ukazana nam oczami naszego męskiego bohatera, Lucasa. Na drugą część musiałam czekać długo. Ku mojemu wielkiemu zadowoleniu, trzecia część ukazała się szybciej. Pełna nadziei, iż znowu otrzymam historię, która wciągnie i zachwyci mnie już od pierwszych stron, zabrałam się za czytanie. Niestety, trochę się zawiodłam.
 
Do tej pory bardzo lubiłam się przyglądać początkom miłości. Takie lektury bardzo mnie odprężały. Zazwyczaj bardzo szybko zżywałam się z bohaterami i nie lubiłam chwili, gdy okazywało się, że to już koniec. Tym razem nie poczułam takiej więzi. Nie było tak, że mi przeszkadzali, czy też ich znielubiłam. Po prostu byli dla mnie obojętni. A Boyce, niestety nie stał się chłopakiem, którego z chęcią bym stalkowała. Pozostaję jednak wierna Lucasowi. W książkę ,,Tak słodko..." było kilka ciekawych momentów, lecz nie na tyle by z wielkim zapałem czytać kolejne strony. Książka na pewno po ciężkich dniach intensywnej pracy przynosi chwile relaksu. Niestety nie potrafiłam zakochać się w niej tak samo jak w historii Luke'a oraz Jacqueline i to mi chyba najbardziej przeszkadzało. Przyzwyczaiłam się, że Webber przynosi nam niesamowite historie, a tu taka dosyć przeciętna. 
 
Książkę ,,Tak blisko..." przeczytałam trzy lata temu. Jak dla mnie to dość długi czas, w trakcie którego mogłam się zmienić. Przez trzy lata przeczytałam na pewno kilka książek o podobnej tematyce, więc to co kiedyś mi się podobało, teraz stało się oklepane. Mimo wszystko nie było tak źle, jak można by podejrzewać. Nadal mam ochotę na poznawanie podobnych historii i czekam na kolejną książkę stworzoną przez panią Webber, gdyż jej twórczości zawsze będę ciekawa, a to dlatego, że pokochałam ,,Tak blisko...".

“Haven’t you said everything that needs to be said? Do you want to devalue me some more? Because I have to tell you, I’m not real super amendable to that.”

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Why I picked that quote:  Have you ever had a guy break up with you, and after he realizes you’ve moved on; he then wants to have a talk about maybe getting back together…it’s a typical guy move.  Seriously, though it feels so good to tell them…fat chance of that happening.  Sorry.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

 

Overall Rating 4/5 Stars

 

Breakdown of Rating

 

 

  • Plot: 4.2/5 I felt the near rape in this book was dealt with realistically, whereas some others felt it wasn’t.
  • Characters: 5/5  Down to earth characters.  To me, they are accurately portrayed as twenty somethings.  Erin, is one my favorite supporting characters.
  • Theme: 5/5
  • Flow: 4/5  I had to reread some passages, just to figure out what was going on.
  • Originality: 5/5
  • Book Cover: 3/5  This particular couple is way overdone, they are on so many covers.
  • The Feels: 2/5  I felt the romance could have been a little more developed.
  • Sex Factor: somewhat explicit sex
  • Ending: 5/5   Cliffhanger:  No

 

Will I continue the series:  The ending to this felt like an actual ending, but I’ve seen a second book with both Lucas and Jacqueline in it.  (I really don’t like that sort of continuation…I mean what; is something bad going to happen to them and/or their relationship is now in question, ugh…)

 

Synopsis:

 

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.

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.

 

My Thoughts:

 

This is one of those books, where it seems I’m the only one who hasn’t read it yet, I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to it, either.  I’m glad I finally got around to it.  Easy was a quick, enjoyable read.
