Love Story by Jennifer Echols

Love Story:
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 love Jennifer Echols' writing, but unfortunately this one didn't manage to make my 'favorites' list. I enjoyed the story between Erin and Hunter, but wasn't a big fan of the back and forth within their short stories. That sounds terrible, doesn't it? I really don't mean for it to sound that way, I guess what I'm trying to say is that it didn't flow nicely for me. There is a lot of history between Hunter and Erin, what kept me interested was the way Jennifer revealed a little bit more, and just a little bit more throughout the entire book. Neither seems to be able to be truly honest with the other and as they warily circle their feelings for one another the tension builds wonderfully, keeping you hoping for that happy ending you know is coming. I was a little disappointed with the abrupt ending and I still have a few questions that were left unanswered. But all-in-all I did enjoy this book, and if you are a fan of Jennifer's work, you'll like it too.
