An A-List movie star....
Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine a life where fans would chase him, paparazzi would stalk him, and Hollywood studios would want to own him. While filming in Seaport, Rhode Island, Ryan ducks into a neighborhood bar for a quick escape from legions of screaming fans... and finds much more than he expected.
A small-town girl....
Nursing a recent heartbreak, Taryn Mitchell believes men are best kept at a safe distance. But when Ryan Christensen unexpectedly bursts through the front door of her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in by his humor, charm, and undeniable good looks. At six foot two, with dirty blond hair, blue eyes, and an incredible body, Ryan has every girl in Seaport swooning. But Taryn isn’t every other girl.
A relationship that doesn’t follow the script....
Despite her better judgment, Taryn soon finds herself falling hard for Ryan. But is their bond strong enough to survive the tabloid headlines, the relentless paparazzi, and the jealous fans who seem determined to tear them apart?

The narrator was fine, a little stilted at times.
I hated both of the main characters. I found myself grinding my teeth I got so irritated listening to this book. If I had to hear one more rant about psycho fans or paparazzi I was going to lose my mind. The male lead is a celebrity with 20 million in the bank at 27yrs old- give me a break, no one feels bad for him. These characters are totally unsympathetic, unrelatable and annoying. also the author should have spent more time jn research so many inconsistencies. there aren't enough good sex scenes to even make this close to credit worthy.
Don't waste a minute on this one.
I think I love this more than Christian and Anna. Witty characters and sense of humor. Loved the characters and all their relationships together. Erotic without being explicit.
This book has everything, romance, suspense and adventure. worth every minute of listening time. keeping it
I read like a madwoman all my life but now I have bad eyes. Thank goodness for audio books
The story was very boring for me. I had to make myself listen to it. Cute superstar actor meets ordinary girl. Then what? Nothing. Teenage fantasy maybe but not for adults.
32 years old and still addicted to happy endings!
Holy cow this is a L-O-N-G book! By 8 hours in I was kinda done with the relationship. Perfect girl (rich, talented, educated, kind, faithful, with excellent best friends to count on) meets perfect guy (rich, talented, educated, kind, loving, faithful, and a movie star) except they have to deal with Ryan's choice of career. Simple story. Not too many complicated feelings. I felt this was drawn out...when they got together it was sweet, but then the story dragged on….and on...and on.
The characters actually are more like real people than most books. Almost felt like a biography. The section about the neice was really funny. I knew when I saw the length it would be a total history of the characters. I enjoyed this and was happy to find a new author. Looking forward to the next installment. Worth the time and cost/credit.
If this book is any indication of what her other books are like, sadly I will not be reading them.
I am one for long stories, as long as there is some actually story to it! It was just really boring. I never lifted off the ground for me. Plus the formula is so not original. It really could use some more interesting dialogue. Just bad, boring and looonnnggg...

It made me laugh, it made me cry, the trials and tribulations of a hometown girl who falls for a famous movie star except she does not know he is famous. The situations seem realistic, the challenges real, and the emotions run high. Good fun!
I purchased this book based on positive reviews and finished it because of a type A personality that refuses to quit. I enjoy long books, but only when there is a reason for the length.
9/10s of this book was a cycle of predicability and melodramatic inner dialogue. A valid plot only surfaced in the final few hours, which would be okay if the book was 5 hours, instead of 22. The main characters rushed into "love," sat idling at monotonous trust & celebrity issues for over 2/3s of the book, and then flew through a series of significant events in the last few hours. The book lacked consistent character development, completely failed to engage me as a reader, and left me shocked by the number of positive reviews it received.
No, at least not for a long while. Author needs some seasoning if writing this type genre.
Keep the female lead character consistent. She starts off independent and strong, then meets the book's love interest and she becomes insecure and passive. Both romance leads seemed immature.
Narrator did okay with story line.
Readers be aware this is a romance story about 26/27 yr olds. Perhaps suits a younger reader demographic. Not very inviting for those who have lived a little more.
