This is the first time I read a Jennifer Echols book and it was a nice read. Echols was able to provide a really fun and amusing love story but also a really frustrating one. I love how we learned Erin and Hunter's history and how their relationship turned into something really complicated through the stories they wrote on their creative writing class.
Erin was a determined and firm character. I love that she knows what she wants and how hard she works for it. In her case, being used of having everything she needed, it was really admirable that she was able to keep up on things now that she has to work hard for everything she needed. What I don't like about her was her inability to confront her real feelings, assume things and jump to worst possible conclusions. Hunter, on the other hand was interesting, sweet and mysterious enough but not really mysterious, I mean he had his secrets but he can also be really open especially on how much he cares for Erin. However when I learned about the bargain he did with Erin's grandmother I was suddenly confused about him. But still I like him! lol.
The two could be really stubborn! At one point they would made up then suddenly there would be an unexpected twist and then they're enemies again. They refuse to communicate their feelings with each other and talk about the situation. The ending left me a little confused about their relationship because they never really had a talk about it. Even after what had happened in their last creative writing class. Yes, Erin realize in the that they really should stop toying with each other and asses their feelings instead but she never admit that she had made poor decisions and actions. There was really a lack of emotional response that clearly states that she wanted their relationship to be real and better in the end. Its like The ending was abrupt left me not really satisfied. There were things that were left unsettled like Erin's relationship with her grandmother. But nonetheless there were really nice parts that I enjoyed very much. And Erin and Hunter still end up with each other but not just really clear how.
