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'm not a contemporary reader, but have to say that I really enjoyed Love Story.

Out of the whole book my favorite parts were when Erin and Hunter shared their stories in class. Both writing about each other and looking at it differently. "She's writing about him. he's writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines... " describes this book perfectly. What I didn't know about was the strong back story. Erin and Hunter's history go way deeper than what I was expecting.

I LOVE the settings. Freshman college students in New York and then them going back to Kentucky with the horses and the beautiful land. It was really nice reading about college students instead of high school students. They aren't officially adults, but it shows the life Erin has to go through to survive without her grandma's money.

The characters were very interesting. I found that I really liked Erin's character because she was stubborn and often defensive. Those were some real qualities in someone that I really enjoyed reading about. Plus she had a really neat dream to become a writer and that she loved to read. Hunter on the other hand was a bit questionable. I didn't feel like I knew him and I could have cared less with what he did. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy those Hunter moments, but I just couldn't put a finger on who he is.

The writing was really great and very easy. The chemistry between Hunter and Erin were one of the reasons I stayed up all night and woke up early in the morning to finish this book. Love Story was my first Jennifer Echols book, but it's definitely not going to be my last.

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5
