Dream Chaser by Angie Stanton

I love it. The storyline pulls you in right from the beginning. I started reading it this afternoon and hadn't put it down until the end. I loved the character of Willow, because her fear was really very realistic and didn't seem forced or fake which made her a very real character for me. Have you ever fallen off a horse and then had to get right back on to get over the fear of falling? No, well let me tell you it completely sucks. Your trust in yourself has been broken, and maybe even your trust in the horse was broken. But if your like me, you get right back on and try again. Willow doesn't. Maybe she does, but not the way your thinking. I really liked Eli to, he kinda seemed like a rock, if you know what I mean. He's always kind of there, even when they hate each other. So in one sense when they hate each other he's there, but does he really want to be?

Here's the Blurb:

Willow Thomas has a bad habit of running away from things that scare  her. And most recently, she quit her high school cheerleading squad  after a terrifying fall. With time on her hands, she auditions for a musical production directed by a Broadway choreographer. Just as things are looking up, Willow discovers she will be performing opposite Eli McAvoy, the best friend she abandoned three years before. To make matters worse, the kids in the musical hate her, her singing sucks, and her dog is sick. Eli has grown up during their 
years apart and now possesses confidence and good looks, as well as a giant chip on his shoulder. He is in no hurry to play nice with Willow, but their entwined roles in the musical lead to entwined bodies in the backseat of his car. Just when Willow finally has her life under control, another surprise is delivered in the form of her 
greatest challenge yet. Will she run or finally stand and face her fears? And will Eli be there to help or turn his back on her for good?
