At last, the rest of the story that began in Love Unscripted.
There is no rehearsal for true love.
When A-list movie star Ryan Christensen ducked into her pub to escape his screaming fans, never in a million years did Taryn Mitchell think her life was about to change forever. But now, eight months later, after a whirlwind romance, Taryn wakes up in Ryan’s Hollywood hotel room to find a diamond to die for on her left ring finger - and her face splashed across the cover of every gossip magazine.
Ryan’s very public proposal is catnip to the tabloids, his management team is worried, and Taryn must figure out how a small town girl like her fits into his glittering world. What does it take to make a relationship work amidst telephoto lenses, daily on-set temptations, and jealous fans who will stop at nothing to keep you from walking down the aisle with the man of your dreams?
With no script to follow and no chance for a dress rehearsal, Taryn and Ryan will be forced to take the plunge into real life and risk everything to make their love last.

Enjoy listening to a narration of a great book.
The engagement went "viro" which upset Ryan Chistiansen's publishiist, Marla, and Agent, David, who summoned Ryan back to Los Angeles for a meeting. Marla & David were not very please that Ryan insist that Taryn Mitchell, his fiancé, sit in during the meeting.
Marla was disgusted and wanted to get a "handle on the problem" of the engagement and put it out it was just a stunt. Taryn talked to Marla's assistant, wanted to know if Marla put out a press release about their engagement and work on the fact it was "so romantic".
In this book, Taryn becomes much more involved in Ryan's life. She has impressed movie directors and producers. Taryn is honest , kind and is not afraid to express the truth. Problem with this is Ryan's eyes are opened to see who is positively working towards his goals as an actor or who is a leech.
Tina Reber reminds us we are all human whether we are in front of the camera or behind it. The word "fan" comes from the word "fanatic". We should remember that next time some one purchases a fan magazine. Try to remember who's life was disturbed in order to get the one photo.
Great character development. Superb narration. It would make a great movie! I would definitely recommend both of the books in this series.
Someone that has nothing else to read or do.
She made Terrene seem just as strong as Ryan but she was not and this made the store boring.
Not really just can't seem to listen to it even when I am bored out of my mind and its not the narrator its the story line.
This is the second book and again I loved it. Ryan and Taryn's journey is yes; a journey. It
had everything joy, grief heartache, love, betrayal, jealously and loyalty. Again Madeleine Maby did a fantastic job with the narration. Following the lives of the other characters and all the shit that follows Ryan around OMG is this it is like? This is a great romantic and stress filled story but well worth the read or listen great happy ending..
I rarely take the time to write reviews - and I should as I do rely upon them when making purchase selections. But this one is so bad I am compelled to write about it. No matter how weak a book is, I almost always listen to it to the end just because I have nothing better to do during my commute. This one I am just less than half way thru and can't stomach another minute.
There is absolutely no plot to this book. It is one sex scene right after another with no action in between. The only thing in this book besides sex is the continual whining of the two lead characters because of papparazzi and over zealous fans.
The narrator does an OK job, but she has nothing to work with. I am not a prude and don't object to sex scenes. But when a book has nothing to it but sex and whining it does not make for an enjoyable experience.
Save your credit for something worth listening to. This one is NOT it!
I luv to read but since having my lil boy 11 mths ago hard to find the time to pick up a book so hello audible my life saver hahahahaha
Honestly the bodyguard and her friends story.
no not really
Its a good finish to the first book. Its def a good read but very short. Needed sm=omething more not really sure what tho?
In pursuit of truth, justice, and an end to spoilers!
I waited a few months before picking up this second book in the series, hoping for a break from the endless harping about the paparazzi which clogs up the first book. Now I can happily report the paparazzi harping is much more proportional to the plot this time around!
And I’m laughing at myself as I type that because in spite of that I still enjoy these books. The story picks up right where we left off with Taryn, Ryan and the gang. No big missing gaps of time or anything. This book might have been a touch less absorbing than the first but that’s just me splitting hairs. Maybe it’s more that Taryn and Ryan are gaining a bit more emotional stability, so it felt safe to put down the headphones without worrying that they’d fall to pieces if left untended! Overall there was less urgency in this book, both between the main characters and in the plot. I preferred the urgency in the first book and the reduced paparazzi harping in this one.
The secondary characters got a lot of air time which added a lot to the storyline. In fact, I’ve heard a rumor that the next book in the series is going to switch around some of the main and secondary characters, and after liking several of them so much in this book that sounds like a great idea! It’s going to be called Love Unguarded, which makes the rumor that Mike will be one of the characters in the spotlight (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun!) sound even more likely. No set date yet, but from what I’ve heard it won’t be out until sometime in 2014.
Anyway, if you liked the first book there’s a good chance you’ll like this one too. These books aren’t deep and they’re not going to change your world, but they’re a good fit when you’re in the mood for a sweet, sappy, easy romance. Nothing fast-moving, no nail-biting, just slow, easy sap with a slightly different backdrop. And a great narrator! So if you were on the fence about liking the first book and were hoping for a big sweeping change… Nope, this book’s not for you.
This book had my attention from the beginning and did not put it down until it was finished. Definitely will listen to it again!
