Waiting on Wednesday

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, highlighting the books we're eagerly anticipaiting.

I rarely do these any more, but the cover and description for this one just went live last week and I can't resist sharing it here.

Love Story by Jennifer Echols
Release date: July 19th
Genre: YA contemp romance

 
WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW.
 
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.

Lets see: a favourite author, horses, dreams of NYC, dreams of being a writer, a kinda bad boy stable hand and a messy love story? Um, can I have this yesterday please?!!

I love all of Jennifer's books, but one of her previous books, Going Too Far, is one of my favourite YA's full stop. So I'm desperate for this new book from her to fall in love with! I also love the cover. So simple and clean. All her 'romantic dramas' have the same feel to them cover wise, and it's something I really love, it's beautiful. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

I saw this one on someone else's pick this week and I can't help but be intrigued. I'm yet to read any of Jennifer's books, but I'm sure I'll love them when I finally get around to them!

Check out my WOW this week!

I haven't read anything by Echols, but I should. I like that the book is set in college. Not many YA books are.

This one does sound interesting - almost like a writer's perfect fantasy. It will definitely appeal to a lot of horse-, romance- and writing-mad teens. Nice pick!

If you'd like, you can check out my WoW post here.

I'm not a big romance fan, but I'm intrigued by this title. I love the synopsis and the little bit of mystery.
