Review: Love Story

Love Story

Love Story
Jennifer Echols
Publisher: MTV Books
Release Date: July 19, 2011

She's writing about him. he's writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines..

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.

I am so in love with Jennifer Echol's books. I would definitely say she's one of my favorite authors. I've loved all of her books, and Love Story was no exception.

I loved reading Erin and Hunter's story. They would make me mad at times, but then again every good love story makes me mad, at least a little.

I must say this book is unique. We don't see a lot of YA reads set in collage, and we don't read a lot about inspiring novelists. Not to mention Erin's grandmother giving her inheritance to Hunter. The whole premise of the books is not like most.

I was captivated by the whole story. I couldn't stop reading. Although, I felt that the ending was a bit abrupt.

Now that I've mentioned all of the good things about the book, I do need to say that I was expecting more. I did enjoy it, but if fell a bit short.

Although it's not my favorite Jennifer Echols book, I still think fans of Jen will enjoy this read. It's a riveting edition to the Echols collection.
