Review by Melissa

Easy was my first ever New Adult novel that I read and fell in love with. The reason that I’m writing this review now and not a few months ago as I should have is because I back then couldn’t find the right words to describe how wonderful and inspiring this book really is. Actually, I still don’t think I have the right words and I believe I will never do, but it’s time for me to write more than “I loved this book so much!”.

First of all, I’d like to praise the author of this amazing book. Tammara Webber is an author that knows how to deliver a story with such a tough subject and at the same time, bring out hope and encourage her readers to think more about it. She kind of turns on the lights of a very dark room with the help of humor, romance and the harsh reality of the extremes sick people tend to do to innocent ones.

In Easy, Jackie is almost raped by someone she knows, but is saved by the handsome Lucas who happened to be near her at the right time. Even if the deed wasn’t done all the way through, this event left her emotionally drained and terrified to be a victim again. But life goes on, and she has to live with the nightmare and hope that it never happens to her again.

Lucas is incredible. He’s more than a knight in shining armor. He is a fighter, attentive, caring and a beautiful broken boy who needs his own savior to save him from his inner demons. Oh, how I loved to read about him. Jackie is one lucky girl to have found him. The chemistry between them was … HOT. And, even though their relationship was complicated-tempers were always brimming at their limits and tension would break out constantly between them-they were both perfect for each other.

Easy is so, so good from cover to back that I will be rereading it once I get a break from my ever-growing TBR pile. This book is the kind that leaves a mark. It makes you giddy and excited. It makes you laugh and then stuns you in shock. It’s a book worth reading over and over again until you know every line by heart. I definitely recommend it to everyone who loves the New Adult genre.


Review: Laid Bare by Lauren Dane

Laid Bare (Brown Siblings, #1)

Unexpected Desire…
It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn’t in the cards just yet…
Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin’s past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd’s best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed–and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?

Erin was a very strong woman ten years ago and she had a very normal relationship with Todd, but he was afraid of the hurt and how much darker their sex lives was. She liked a bite of pain and he was always torn about what was enough, constantly thinking it wasn’t normal and how he was raised.

I loved Erin from before but it was so interesting the author made was watch how much the years and lost changed her. I believe it was very important to see she was a carefree woman always working for her band and finding happiness in the breddorm giving up her body and mind to Todd.

I hated how Todd kept second gessing their passion and decided to break things up. He suffered and learned he had the perfect life and gave up just because he was afraid of different. I think Erin accepted him back way to easy, but I understand the book is about more than these two and I liked how the author introduced their third partner into the mix.

Ben is sure about his relationship and always loved Todd, plus had a very normal dose of passion for Erin while she was a famous singer. They are great together, but it was a bit off for me how Todd accepted Ben in his life so easily. Is past ten years but it’s never easy for a guy to understand another man wants him and to do something about it.

I liked the book, but still don’t think Todd was ready for a M/M relationship.
