Goodreads Summary: 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.

The latest book I’ve read by Ms. Echols, and I wanted to thank her for giving me a chance to review this one, so… 

Erin Blackwell is majoring in creative writing it is her ticket away from the awful memories she left behind their farm. But when the day that she’s sharing her assignment in the class came, Hunter walks in. He is the stable boy in Erin‘s story and the one who take her college tuition given by her grandmother when she refuses to take over the farm someday. 

The first part of the story is really lovable. The banter of Erin and Hunter, how Hunter revise his own story for Erin and how he used some medical/scientific terms (I hate that subject! tsk) which I don’t understand some of it and so on and so forth. I view this book as a powerful one for me. But there still some parts wherein I feel bored; I think the latter part of the story is where the weak point kicks in. Though I don’t want and try not to compare this book with the other books I’ve read by Ms. Echols I still feel that this is not the book I would give a 5 star. The location was new to me, the farm and horses; the place was described unmistakably and marvelously. The romance arises precisely that not only the adult readers will love but also the young ones. I’m a bit not satisfied with how the ending turns up. But overall I enjoyed the book and salutes Ms. Echols for bringing great contemporary books in our shelves. :)
