Erin Blackwell is headed to college in New York City to study creative writing and earn a living as a romance novelist. Her grandmother has other plans: she approves of the college, but she wants Erin to study business and then come back home to Kentucky to run the family's famous racehorse farm. There is no way Erin will agree. Studying in New York and writing her way into a career is her escape from the farm and the family tragedy that happened there. So Erin's grandmother decides Erin really will live life as a starving artist. She takes Erin's future job running the farm, her inheritance, even her college tuition, and gives them all to Hunter Allen. Hunter has lived on the farm for years. He's Erin's age, he's the stable boy, and he's the romantic dream of every girl in her high school. But he was involved in the family tragedy. Erin has always given him a wide berth. And he's a slick opportunist. She's furious that he fooled her grandmother into giving him Erin's birthright and sending him to Erin's college. At least she's free of him in her creative writing class. So she pens a story that has haunted her lately, in which the horse farm heiress at the very first Kentucky Derby starts a forbidden affair with the lowly stable boy. Unfortunately for her, the day she's sharing this story with her New York classmates, Hunter walks in. He's switching to her class. And after reading about himself in Erin's story, he writes his own sexy assignments that lure Erin into dangerous fantasies about what could have been between them, and what might be.

I really enjoyed reading the contemporary novel "Love Story" by Jennifer Echols. I had to get past the first 30 pages to really start enjoying it. I picked up this book almost a month ago, read the first 20 pages then got bored and put it down and never went back to it. Every time I was considering what to read next I'd read a page of the book and then choose something else. Today I put a stop to this nonsense and made myself sit down and READ at least 50 pages or so and if I still didn't like it, then I can tell myself at least I tried.
The story started off with a short story, the heroine "Erin", wrote for her creative writing class. It took a while for me to get through that story as I didn't understand what was going on and why it was set in the past when clearly the book is present day contemporary. However I kept going and understood it was a story the heroine wrote. I REALLY started to enjoy the story when the main male lead "Hunter" (can I say how much I LOVE this name?) is enrolled in the same creative class! And guess what her story is about? HIM!. I got a few laughs, embarrassing ones for her too, on the situation she was put it. Her short story wasn't just a teen love story, ehh it was quite 'mature' in content. This is when I knew I would love this book.
I couldn't put the book down. I ignored all the shows I had waiting for me and couldn't stop. I even passed up on sleeping just so I can finish this book! Hunter was dreamy, he was sweet, and his grins made me squeal! (I'm a sucker for a guy with a 'lopsided grin' or dimples!). Another thing I loved is how independent Erin is. Even though she is what some might call "A spoiled rich kid" I found her very confident in her decision to leave the riches behind and pursue her dream. I had my doubts on her faÃ???Ã??Ã?Â§ade and thought she wouldn't be able to keep playing the ex-rich girl who is now poor because she is pursuing her dream of being a writer. I thought she would crack down at one point in the story and go back and obey her grandmother so she can get back her credit cards.
This was definitely a page turner, I couldn't put it down. It was a very enjoyable contemporary read and I'm glad I finally gave the book a chance, because anyways its Jennifer Echols. I've basically read everything by her. I shouldn't have doubted how awesome this book would be.
