The first half of this book was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the budding relationship between Taryn and Ryan. There was probably too much internal dialogue with Taryn but for the most part she started out pretty level headed in her thoughts. As the instability with the press and fans builds, so does her insecurity. I found everything about this book to be predictable and the end was a bit over the top for me. Still it was a fun, addictive listen.
This could have been a formula romance but is set apart by the amount of detail the author includes. Instead of making the story drag, this makes the story and the characters more interesting. Combined with excellent narration, additional fun characters, and some steamy moments. this romance exceeded my expectations and was definitely worth a credit.
This title is one that I will listen to again. Enjoyed the read. Being a baby boomer and a big Beatle fan this story was a fantasy of mine in my younger years.
Narration was good, easy to listen to, good vocal changes for the various characters. Easy to tell characters apart in conversations. Story line and characters were lovely, if a little predictable, but it kept me wanting more!
I feel a bit weird that I didn't like this book since a lot of people have. I haven't even finished it. The story line was slow, I didn't get the chemistry of the two main characters. I was just waiting and waiting to see if I would like it more, I will finish it however I am not motivated too. bummer.
I was very disappointed in this story. I prefer strong heroes and heroines, and I found these two wimpy and whiney. If you want to listen to a story about the poor actor who loves to be an actor but spends his time whining about the price of fame, and the girl who decides to be the one to keep the big bad paparazzi out, go for it.
I can't believe this book gets any positive ratings - it is terrible. Taryn and Ryan fall in love and from there every mediocre happening in their lives turns into a life and death issue. I can't believe the mundane things in the book that becomes "issues". Really, really not worth it!
Total disappointment and also amazement at the useless issues.
I have just finished this book and am downloading the next 'love unrehearsed'.
My favourite part about this book was the characters. I enjoyed the character development and at times was laughing along with the conversations between friends. I enjoyed the storyline and am looking forward to finding out more about what happens in the next book.
What i didn't like was the 'paparazzi is bad' agenda of the novel. I felt there could have been a little less of this.
At times I also felt that the reader (listener) wasn't given enough credit and the story was really spelt out so the point the author was trying to make was really obvious. I think the book could have been a little shorter if this wasn't case.
I have read other comments that the book was really long but I didn't mind the length. I like to read a series of books, so it wasn't an issue for me at all.
But they are my only two criticisms and I'm buying the next book as I write - so definitely think it's worth a listen.
I didn't love this book, but I couldn't stop listening as I had to see how it finished so I definitely enjoyed it.
This was a very entertaining listen. At times the drama between the characters was a bit much but overall a good listen.
