From Goodreads:
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.
YES – finally, a book about a college-age character!! Love Story sounds full of scandal, romance, deceit, and a ton of other awesome stuff mixed together! I mean, can you imagine having your college tuition just taken away and given to someone else?!

 I loved both Going Too Far and Forget You and I am very excited to read Love Story!

  1. This is on my list too! I can’t wait for it!

  2. Yes! Yes! Yes! I am so, so eager to read this one :-) I LOVED both Going Too Far & Forget You. I just know I’ll love this one too!!! Great pick, Tara :-)

  3. I have Going Too Far on my bookshelf. I need to read it soon and this one sounds good also.

  4. I just added this one to my list, I loooooved Forget You. Great pick! =)

  5. OH my gosh how good does this one sound? And how much would I die of embarrassment if I wrote a story about a guy and he walked in while I was reading it and knew it was him. I think I’d crawl in a hole and be a complete coward for at least a month, only after that amount of time would my blush fade allowing me to rejoin society. Adding this to the list for sure, thanks Tara!

  6. Wow! Write your own love story?! Sounds good to me. And yes, I think finally authors have heard are pleas about college setting stories. :D

    Great choice Tara!

  7. I still need to read a Jennifer Echols book, lol.

  8. Is this book going to trump my love of John After?!?!?!? We shall see!
