Perfect Couple (Superlatives #2) by Jennifer Echols [EPUB passionate summer love story about a girl, her childhood best friend, and the small town lies that.
After reading Forget You , I had hoped that I would never again be subjected to a female lead as vapid and irritating as Zoey. My hopes were promptly crushed as Echols has managed, in Love Story , to not only create a character I cannot in any way relate to, but whom I genuinely dislike. Erin is shallow, judgmental, arrogant, stubborn in a very, very bad way , jealous, rude, deceitful, and just plain uninteresting. She mentally writes all of her classmates off as "manic depressive" when they seem to like her stories crafted around her childhood more than they do her silly romances.
When her writing professor tells her that she has more talent for dialog and pacing than any young writer he's yet seen in his teaching career, she doesn't even register the compliment because she's too busy focusing on the very helpful constructive criticism he offers afterward. Reading her mental processes "he doesn't know what he's talking about! We all know at least one.
The supporting cast is, in general, good. Underutilized, of course, but this is common in YA romance since the stories are generally short and teens want to read about the romance. I think my favorite character was Erin and Hunter's writing instructor, Gabe, and I would have liked to see more of him.
But again, thinking about Gabe brings up another confusing plot point. Erin's major ambition in the story is to apply for and win a publishing internship. When she mentions this to Gabe toward the end of the book, he says there's no way she would get it.
Why not? She's the best student in his class he has just told her as much , so why wouldn't she have a chance at the internship? We're never told because Erin never asks. She just assumes it's because she got into one-too-many arguments in class regarding her work, and because she and Hunter blew up at each other.
If those are really the reasons Gabe wouldn't allow her to get the publishing internship, that says more than I want to know about his personal integrity.
To deny a qualified student the chance of a lifetime because she has an argument with a boyfriend in class after said boyfriend burst into the class screaming at her is something beyond petty. Hunter Allen.
What can I say? Echols didn't fail here, she once again wrote a male protagonist I like. The only problem I have with Hunter is that he's in love with someone as utterly disgusting as Erin.
The idea that something so petty could keep two people apart for so long is ridiculous. And if it really did happen, I would say that at least one of those people is one of the more pathetic human beings I've seen in my life.
To top it off, we find out at one point that Erin was a frigid bitch to Hunter throughout high school, never once standing up for him when people began making fun of him because he worked for Erin's family. But she was traumatized after her mother's death, so we're apparently supposed to give her a pass on the whole horrible person thing. While I generally admire Echols' frank, honest portrayal of teens and sex, Erin having sex with Hunter despite her knowledge of his deception and her subsequent assertion that she "used" him was disgusting and infuriating.
Throughout the entire story, Erin is constantly second-guessing Hunter, making assumptions regarding his motives, and accusing him of things he was neither doing nor planning on doing.
Yet we're supposed to believe that this is the girl Hunter is in love with. The reader can't help but ask, in exasperation, "Why?! To top it all off, this book didn't even really have an ending. Erin finds out about Hunter's deception, they have sex, Hunter reads Erin's story about losing her virginity to some social parasite they both dislike, they blow up at each other in class, their professor dresses them down in his office and then Hunter is in Erin's room packing her things and telling her they need to go back to Louisville so Erin can talk to her grandmother.
Erin agrees and as she leaves her room to head for the shower, Hunter smiles at her. That's it. The reader is left wondering what happens to Hunter and Erin. Do they stay together? Does Erin make up with her grandmother? Does she stick with writing or decide to take over the family business like her grandmother wants?
About The Doublecross
I understand the impact an ambiguous ending can have, and I've read and loved plenty of stories where I was able to ponder the ramifications of future events on my own without them being spelled out for me. The ending of Love Story , however, did not leave me with a pleasant, floating-in-limbo-while-pondering-the-possibilities feeling.
It left me with a "What the hell was that? I spent all this time reading this and that is the ending I get?! I'm giving it two stars because, despite my dislike of it, it wasn't horrible.
Not nearly as bad as some other books I've read. This book had so much potential to be greateven with the character's unending flaws that they seemed to never overcome , the ideas between the history of the two main characters and the fact that their feelings were shared in front of their entire creative writing class.
The ending was thrown together, as if her publisher wanted it finished NOW. When I was nearing the end last 20 pages I kept checking how many pages were left because I thought, "there's no way this could wrap up so quickly. I'm not a "hater" of authors I'm one myself and very much support my fellow writers as much as possible.
