Rachel Grant is quickly becoming one of my favorite go-to authors for romantic suspense. This book starts off in high gear, life and death action and never lets up!
I've read 3 books by Ms. Grant and I have yet to be disappointed.

Strikes be damned...I loved it. Everything about Easy struck all the right chords and painted the perfect picture (those references are for J and L). Final passing grade? A great big, huge A! Lucas/Landon/LM/jack-of-all-trades...or my personal favorite...Mr Perfect. He WAS all that and a bag of chips *deep, dreamy sigh*.
I could write this review solely using adjectives extolling the virtues of all the yummyness that is Lucas. Strong, sexy, compassionate, sensitive, caring, artist, hard-working, protective, smart and amazingly hot. And it doesn’t stop there. He’s tortured and tattooed and pierced which only adds to his unbelievable appeal. He is the complete and perfect hero.
I really like Jacqueline’s character as well. She did make some questionable decisions like deciding to attend a school not in her best interests but because of her boyfriend, who then promptly proceeded to dump her. Also the decision to remain quiet about the attack...smart? No. Realistic? Unfortunately yes and totally in keeping with something I could see a young woman doing. And ultimately her decisions led her to Lucas...for the win!
I am actually surprised at how much I enjoyed a YA novel but I really shouldn’t be. My TV play list is full of teen-angst shows like Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and back in the day Dawson’s Creek and the original Beverly Hills 90210 (am I dating myself?).
I am so glad I discovered Easy. To think I could have missed out on meeting Lucas...that would have been a crying shame.
So in summary I will be checking out more YA novels, I will definitely be reading more by Tammara Webber and maybe I don’t hate first person as much as I used to.
Your decision to read this book should be...Easy!...more

I enjoyed the premise and set up with the SAR aspect of the story. There were some tense moments with the elements and location playing a major character all on it’s own. However an attempted rescue of survivors of a downed airplane, a snowy landscape and isolated area did not lend itself or offer any time or opportunity for any romantic entanglement between the hero/heroine. I actually changed my bookshelves for this one from romantic suspense to just straight up suspense-action. ...more

I like my erotica light and sexy or at least not a total degrading and humiliating experience for the heroine. There are some cringe worthy scenes that made my skin crawl and still I felt compelled to find out how many more horrors Mia would be forced to endure. I think I'll go find something light and fluffy to cleanse my reading pallet. Some imagines need to be erased.
It was a quick read but the ending felt rushed and some aspects of the storyline left unresolved....more
