Easy by Tammara Webber

I’ve been avoiding YA for a while as I’ve been really disappointed with the offerings so I’m not sure how this made it to my TBR list.  Easy is a well written romance for high school and college agers.  It tells the tale of college student Jacqueline.  Jacqueline is a gifted standing bass player who rather than go to a school with a great music program follows her longtime boyfriend to the school of his choice.  Kennedy (the boyfriend) dumps her saying he needs to sow his wild oats.  Losing Kennedy sets Jacqueline back and it takes her two weeks to be able to return to the one class they share.  Her Econ prof sets her up with a tutor who helps Jacqueline realize that she is going to be better than okay.  Meanwhile she is being harassed and almost raped by one of Kennedy’s frat brothers.  She is rescued by Lucas, a cute guy from her econ class.  Between the tutor and Lucas, Jacqueline blossoms.  Good story.  Some schmaltz.  Sexual situations.
