For Erin Blackwell, majoring in creative writing at the New York City college of her dreams is more than a chance to fulfill her ambitions--it's her ticket away from the tragic memories that shadow her family's racehorse farm in Kentucky. But when she refuses to major in business and take over the farm herself someday, her grandmother gives Erin's college tuition and promised inheritance to their maddeningly handsome stable boy, Hunter Allen. Now Erin has to win an internship and work late nights at a coffee shop to make her own dreams a reality. She should despise Hunter . . . so why does he sneak into her thoughts as the hero of her latest writing assignment?
Then, on the day she's sharing that assignment with her class, Hunter walks in. He's joining her class. And after he reads about himself in her story, her private fantasies about him must be painfully clear. She only hopes to persuade him not to reveal her secret to everyone else. But Hunter devises his own creative revenge, writing sexy stories that drive the whole class wild with curiosity and fill Erin's heart with longing. Now she's not just imagining what might have been. She's writing a whole new ending for her romance with Hunter . . . except this story could come true.
This was the first book that I have read by Jennifer Echols. I have actually had this book for an entire year and haven't had a spare moment to read it. Luckily I had a chance to pick it up right before I passed it on to another blogger- I don't know what took me so long! I am in love with Love Story!
This book was witty, passionate, and kept me enthralled- I read it in one sitting! I loved the idea that of the back story between the two main characters and that they were both secretly writing about each other for their creative writing class. Now, did I find a few of the details a little unbelievable? Absolutely, but keep in mind that Erin comes from a rich family- an UNBELIEVABLY rich family. I think my disbelief of a few details about her life in the south was unbelievable to me because I have no idea how the "Other side" lives.
I loved the chemistry between Hunter and Erin. I thought they had passion and just complimented each other incredibly well. I really was pleased by the life that the author breathed into her characters. They were an incredibly fun group to read about. I really wish this book would have been bigger- it really would have made an incredibly fun tv series. I would have loved to watch it- it was almost like Gossip Girl but add in some horses and add a more eclectic bunch of characters. If you haven't read Love Story- I highly suggest you get to it. It was such a fun read!
