Book Review: Love Story by Jennifer Echols

Title: Love Story
Author: Jennifer Echols
Published: 18th August 2011

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 fulfil 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. [GoodReads]

My Thoughts:
The set out of this book was different to the previous books by Jennifer Echols that I have read, largely because of the whole creative writing classes. The build of the book is from the separate story content that Erin and Hunter write for the class to share. Obviously, the stories are much more personal than anyone could guess.

I felt that the characters in the book all seemed very distant. Although we know that Hunter and Erin have had history together and did know each other, it wouldn't of made a difference if they were two strangers who just met. The whole relationship between them seemed as if they were just using one another just because they used to get on really well.

The real let down in this book was the ending. It was an abrupt ending. I did not like it at all. So much was left unanswered. The build up during the whole story seemed like a waste of time and just seemed pointless.

Recommend or Not? Sadly, as much as I've enjoyed Jennifer Echols other books, this is one that I will not recommend.
