Review: Love Story by Jennifer Echols

The moment I found out this story was based around two characters writing about each other I. Was. Hooked. Basically, the main character Erin is living my dream (somewhat). She is living in New York City, majoring in Creative Writing, and working in a café. All is well (aside from the fact her dear old grandmother snubbed her trust fund because she wouldn’t major in business and take over the family farm because she wanted to pursue her dream), and she is enjoying her Creative Writing class. Until she’s written a story inspired from her past, where she gets her happy ending with the guy she loves. Except this guy is real, he stole her inheritance and now he’s in her Creative Writing class. Hunter. Ohh, Hunter. He’s… well one of the most impossible and perfect book boyfriends I’ve come across. He doesn’t mind at all that he stole Erin’s entire life, but at the same time I just could not hate him. Maybe it was because he was a writer. And hot. He was a huge part of Erin’s past and now that he was back in it (whether she wanted him there or not), I figured it was only a matter of time before they got together.

Perfect Couple was a pretty cute and fluffy contemporary young adult novel. It followed main charter Harper, the weird photographer for her school yearbook, who was paired with football star Brody in the Perfect Couple That Never Was superlative. The awarding of that title pretty much spurred on the feelings that the two had been harboring for each other, and they decide that if the school thought they should be together, that they would give it a try. Perfect Couple wasn’t dry or anything. It was pretty entertaining. However, it wasn’t anything special in terms of plot or characters. It wasn’t boring, by any means, but it wasn’t necessarily a completely captivating read. Harper was actually not my favorite character to read. I was constantly rolling my eyes at both her narration and her actions–she came off as quite childish for a majority of the novel, with it getting to almost unbearable near the climax of the story. She was a pushover but at the same time, she was almost paranoid of what other people thought of her. She let other people’s opinions change who she was, and that was a trait that I did not like about […]
