Love Story by Jennifer Echols


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 local 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.

For those of you who don’t already know- I love Jennifer Echols. She is one of the few queens of romantic drama/comedy YA books. Meaning, if you haven’t read her books (preferably all of them) you must. This may be just me, but I love reading books where the main character likes to read and write because I like to read and write so I find it easier to relate to them. The main character, Erin, was awesome. She didn’t just write- she wrote about Hunter.

I won’t lie, sometimes I wanted to punch Hunter in the face. He was confusing, conflicted, and a big *insert curse word here* at some points. He was also adorable, smart, and caring at other points. He was real, and I liked that. Erin was a kick-butt main character. She was written really well, and I loved reading about her.

Love Story was an addicting novel that I think everybody should read. It was shocking, cute, and beyond amazing. I completely recommend it and every other book that Jennifer Echols has written.
