Waiting on Wednesday - Love Story by Jennifer Echols


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on:
Love Story
by Jennifer Echols
Release Date: July 19th 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster / MTV Books

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 major in 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.  -Goodreads
Why am I waiting on this book??

I haven't read any books by Jennifer Echols, yet. I have Forget You waiting for me to start it, and I'm really looking forward to reading it. I've heard really great things about her books.  Plus it sounds really awesome. I love a good Love Story!

What are you WoWing for this week??? Can't wait to see what everyone chose!

  3. Jennifer Echols is one of those authors that I keep bumping up against since I read the Perfect Chemistry books and I've been craving realistic YA. I have yet to try her, and I think I might wait for this one before I do.
