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 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

Erin is basically the average teen-girl reader (minus the whole Kentucky drama back home).  Going to school in New York to write is her dream, any takers?  Ha.  Anyways, I liked reading about Erin, her roommates and Hunter.  Although it was set in a school environment, it had that Summer feeling, like most Jennifer Echols book.  The word I would use to describe this book is...nice.  It isn't the best Jennifer Echols book out there (in my opinion, of course) but it was decent.  

Erin and Hunter's whole romance is entertaining, sometimes fun, but I wouldn't say passionate.  Another part of the book that was a tad bit annoying was the abrupt ending.  I remember being at the lest...40 pages and thinking of how on Earth Echols would be able to nip everything in the bud and still please the reader.  I wouldn't ay she succeeded on pleasing me with the ending, although I was content with it.  I still wanted more though, it definitely wasn't enough though.

All in all, this is a classic Jennifer Echols contemporary book, sweet and simple.  It was a good read, although not her best.  Love Story by Jennifer Echols gets the Golden Moody Seal of Approval.
