In pursuit of truth, justice, and an end to spoilers!
I was in the mood for a nice sweet love story, and this perfectly fit the bill. It was just the right amount of sap at the right moment for me.
When you scan the reviews for this book, two things are repeated over and over.
First, that this feels a lot like that old movie Notting Hill. Second, that it’s bogged down by way, way, WAY too much harping about the evils of the paparazzi who hound the poor, woebegone celebrities.
Both statements are entirely true!
If you’re looking for an easy, relatively low-stress love story, then jump right in! If you’ve seen Notting Hill then you know what sort of story to expect. If you thought it was too slow or had too little plot, then a similar audio about eight times longer probably isn’t your cup of joe. This is not a fast-mover, it’s a slow ride. Whether that’s good or bad is up to you.
I really enjoyed this and will definitely listen to the next book, but not right away. I need a break from the crazy amount of whining about how the lives of all those poor, helpless, giving celebrities are ruined because of the press and the ungrateful public. Author, thy need an editor with an iron whip! Or possibly a weed whacker! Yes, the paparazzi are off the wall, but instead of balancing that theme within the story, the story got a bit bashed with that theme. (And um… If it wasn’t for the interest of the public, does anyone think the celebs would be getting those huge paychecks?) I’m only knocking one star off for that, because I still thought it was a great listen. So now I'm the one harping out of proportion! ;)
The narrator was lovely. I thought she sounded just like Taryn, which is perfect for a first-person narrative. Glad to see she's doing the next book as well!
Recommended for lovers of sweet sappy love stories who don't mind taking their time with a listen. Hollywood gossip lovers may be attracted too, although I'm not and still liked this one quite a bit!
I absolutely loved, loved this book! I listened to Love Unscripted and Love Unrehearsed back to back and was still sad to see it end. What wonderful writing!! I felt like I knew these characters and looked forward to every moment I could listen. The narrator, Madeleine Maby is fantastic and made the words come alive. I can't wait for the next book by this author. Thank you for the fun journey Ms. Reber.
Madeleine Maby who is also Grace Grant is the reason I could hang with this story. She is an excellent narrator. I don't know why some narrators have two names, but you can't miss who Grace Grant is.
The story was way too full of nothing interesting between a pretty good story.
Tina Reber could take a tip from Kristen Hannah's long books which are full of a lot of story lines and keep your interest for 20 hours.
This could have been told in 12 hours and leave out all the useless detail of long dialogs about nothing.
This was also so exaggerated about how fans staulk celebrities. Way over the top on all that.
The story wasn't half bad and the last 1/3 of the book was pretty good. Don't think I could get through the 2nd book in this series though.
I don't know
There is no story, so boring
The narrator is okay
I want to return this book.
Nice enjoyable story but the story was really long! At one point I had to stop because I kinda felt like it was too much "nonsense" that didn't really make the story
No. Unfortunately this book sounds like it was written by an 8th grader in love. Yawn. I was very disappointed. I was looking for a better storyline, better description...well just better.
Total disappointment sadly.
I always keep an open mind with books, but this one sure didn't measure up. Sorry.
