Easy by Tammara Webber
A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?
This was my first time listening to an audiobook! I found it very enjoyable. The narrator, Tara Sands, did a fantastic job and the story was really good too. This story is filled with emotion, real-life issues, coming-of-age-ness, and romance. It starts off really intense, with the main character struggling to fight off a guy who is trying to rape her. Throughout the story, Jacqueline has to live with the consequences of not telling anyone what happened to her that night.
The characters were good. Jacqueline, the main character and narrator, has many issues to deal with early on in the story. She grows a lot throughout the novel and becomes a stronger woman. Lucas, the love interest, is awesome, like many leading men are. He is caring, strong, and Jacqueline’s personal hero.
The writing was good. It’s a bit hard for me to critique the writing, due to the fact that I was listening to the book and not reading it. But, from what I could tell from listening, the writing was well-done. The audio narration was very good. I was able to get into the story every time I turned it on and it was almost like I was reading it myself at times. The voice definitely doesn’t take away from the story whatsoever.
I’m happy to say that my first audiobook experience was enjoyable! Listening to a book when you normally can’t read, like when driving to work and getting ready in the morning, is totally awesome! Though I do feel that some of the storyline was predictable and not overly unique, it didn’t really matter. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone unsure of which one to try first (like I was). The novel I would recommend to all you New Adult Contemporary Romance lovers out there — this one is worth it.
