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.
Such a beautiful story! I fell in love with Jennifer Echols’ writing through this book. Now you can be sure that I will be getting more books from her.
I love the idea of communicating through writing. It sounds so sweet. I only wish Erin wouldn’t be that dense. Seriously, it took her way to long to see that Hunter and her were made for each other. I just loved all the up and down between the two. I adore how it wasn’t simply easy for them to be together, that she didn’t just forgive him. I love that it is believable, even thought I don’t think I’ll ever see that in any of my classes. There was just so much sweetness, without feeling cheesy. It was unique. It was a great change from the classic love story that we’re used to. The only thing that I didn’t like was the ending, simply because I wanted more. I felt that there was too much left unsaid.
The characters were great in the context, but they wouldn’t win the award for best character ever. Erin was slightly naïve. Sometime I would love her; sometime I would want to slap her so she can realize what’s in front of her. I really liked Hunter at first, but he kind of lost his appeal after we learn more about what went on in Kentucky. Not so cool boy. My favorite characters were undeniably the friends. Loved Summer, loved Brian, and loved the others.
This book is perfect for the romantics looking for a new Love Story to make them dream. I will probably read more from Jennifer Echols soon, because I really enjoyed her writing!
