Easy (Contours of the Heart #1) by Tammara Webber

This book was great! Easy is the first book in the Contours of the Heart series by Tammara Webber. 

I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book. The plot of Easy was compelling and moved along at a fast enough pace to hold interest but not so fast that I felt lost. I not only felt connected to the main character Jacqueline but the characters of Kennedy, Lucas/Landon, and especially Erin felt really well developed. I would like to see an Erin spin-off in the future because I think she has a great personality that could make for a really funny book. 

Easy starts out with a bang. Jacqueline is at a frat party a couple weeks after her longtime boyfriend breaks up with her and as she is leaving one of her ex-boyfriends frat brothers tries to rape her in the parking lot. Our hero, Lucas, shows up and saves her. The story unfolds from there as Lucas and Jaqueline grow closer, Lucas’ past is revealed, Jaqueline comes to terms with the fact that she no longer loves her ex-boyfriend Kennedy and lets him go, and Jacqueline learns to follow her own dreams.

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.
