Summary Provided by Goodreads: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.
Let me start by saying that I love Jennifer Echols! Going Too Far and Forget You are two of my favorite contemporary young adult novels so I was very excited when I saw Love Story on galleygrab! I think this one was her best yet and I was not able to put the book down!
Erin and her stable boy, Hunter (Love that name!) have known each other for years and have secretly liked each other the entire time. Before graduation, Erin finds out that because she will not major in business like her grandmother wants her to do, the grandmother gave the multi-million dollar horse ranch along with her inheritance to Hunter. Now, both of them are in college and it kind of seems that they hate each other. In their creative writing class, the two of them write stories back and forth about the things in there past and eventually they need to confront each other about everything that has happened.
I loved Hunter from the beginning. Smart, gorgeous, and talented he knows what he wants and will do what he has to do for it. But he is also vulnerable and holds things in until he is not able to take it anymore. I thought Erin was a strong character because she refused to do what her grandmother wanted, even if that meant losing everything. There is a lot more to Hunter and Erin that meets the eye and I enjoyed watching the two characters evolve and forgive each other.
I thought the title was absolutely perfect and I really like the cover! I hate when covers show the character and they look nothing like the description, but the girl on the cover had a nose ring and freckles, just like Erin.
Overall, Love Story is a great book to read! Definitely Echols best story yet!
Love Story is set to be released on July 19, 2011
