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.
4 stars/5 stars
I received this book as part of the S&S Galley Grab, I was dying to read this book. It sounded like a good concept, and the characters sounded very interesting.
I have to say that I agree with the above. It was a good concept, I hadn't read anything like this before and I felt it flowed effortlessly. The plot seemed very realistic, the characters had flaws as well as good traits.
I particularly enjoyed the stories written by the characters Erin Blackwell and Hunter Allen. Yes you heard right, his name is Hunter :) The fact that Erin and Hunter were supposed to hate each other but actually liked each other a lot made me want them to be together even more!
I enjoyed the character development throughout the novel, Erin is from a rich family, but doesn't have all the 'material' things that she could have. Also, Hunter's past is revealed at the right pace.
This is the first book that I have read that was written by Jennifer Echols, but I have to say, it will not be the last!
