"I took a deep breath and exhaled it slowly before turning around. It was Lucas who stood there. His gaze was penetrating, not wavering for a moment, and my pulse hammered under his silent scrutiny. I couldn't remember the last time I'd been so full of pure, unqualified desire. Lucas is the stranger who saved Jacqueline from an attack by a fellow student - she'd never noticed him before then, and now he's everywhere. But can Jacqueline trust him - or will the secrets he's hiding come between them?"
It's been a while since I last wrote a book review and that's mostly because I was re-reading one of the Harry Potter's. Wizards aside, I've recently finished a book by Tammara Webber (yet another chick lit to add to the list...), an author I hadn't heard of before, but I'm glad I found her. The novel Easy is a step up from Young Adult fiction, as Webber simply calls it "New Adult". Think in terms of 50 Shades of Grey, this book would be a step down from that in terms of genre and the level of explicitness. It was a really gripping read from the first word. There's an extremely violent opening scene where the main character Jacqueline is attacked by a man with intentions of rape, before her rescuer, Lucas, saves the day. The storyline then follows these two characters and how their relationship grows. Overall I really enjoyed it and sailed through it pretty quickly. The writing was good and sometimes extremely evocative. It was also reasonably priced, at £2.99 for the Kindle.
