Review: Love Story By Jennifer Echols.

Review: Love Story By Jennifer Echols.
Genre: Young Adult/ Contempary.

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.

Review: So the story gets straight into it at the start with Erin attending college and within the few pages Hunter is also brought into it. I loved this about Jennifer Echols story her getting straight into it and not making the book go slow and explaining to much before the story actually happens. And right from the start the stories start with Erin and Hunter bickering all the time. That is the whole situation of this book, including the romance and tension heating up between the two, oh and about Erin struggling with money because her grandmother has decided not to help her out. You find when Erin writes her stories there always set around romance, history and of course a stable boy who Hunter knows is about him so getting her back he writers his stories which are quite different to Erins yet the same in so many ways. He writes about sex, doing it for the first time and basically about typical boys getting laid. And the two of them are both in the same college developing a friendship along the way.

I did like this book, espically the beginning because it was exciting and I couldnt wait for both characters to write more stories about the other. But about half way through once the stories wernt so great I started to get a little bored with it. Maybe its because the romance couldnt of developed anymore and that they needed maybe more of a plot with them to make it a little more exciting. I loved Hunters character the most. Even if he was hard to figure out in the beginning. I found he was a nice person and just didnt want to be a stable boy anymore. I found Erin to be annoying at times but I did like the fact that she was making a life for herself without money from her grandmother even if she struggled to pay for things, it got to show us that people worked well to earn off a college tution.
The ending was cute and it basically described the title of this book, I just could of used a little more excitment.

Overall I rate this: B
