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 story is sweet enough, but it does have a tendency to drag on.
Love the movie star meets quiet girl aspect - hate all the uncertainty of the main character after
She was just okay - better voices would be required for another listen.
No. I think it's already been done a thousand times
Nothing like the 50 shades series - doesn't quite give you what you are looking for in a romance.
Im sucker for books - I read this series some time ago but just wanting to get a feel for what it would sound like - and love the book the characters, the story - I know its not a new story line but this is different and I have recommended these books to so many people. You cant go wrong with this one.
The relationship between Taryn and Ryan felt real for all its promise and heartache
I always think if you have read the story and then listen to it and it doesn't change how you see the character then the performer has succeeded.
Yes and wanted to read it in one sitting as well - this is not a good thing - no house work gets done!
I couldn't put this one down. It was a long book but not long enough in my opinion.
I also read second book," Love unrehearsed" also very good. Very well written and performed. If you like sappy love stories, and I mean that in a good way, you will love this one.
The narrator did a great job. I love this book and have read it several times already. Listening to it was so much fun. I noticed that many of the passages were changed from what was written in the book, because I followed allowing with the narrator. I liked the changes.
This book was slow, long, and felt as though the writer had someone tell her "you need a scene to set up ______________" (fill in the blank). It was like reading an undergraduate's first attempt at a novel with that inability to cut anything out. I know that's pretty harsh, but I kept on going to the end in hopes that one character would finally get around to being intelligent and it just never happened.
Already have. Fun story, great performance, great love story, and plenty of conflict. Story reminds me of Notting Hill or even Pretty Woman.
Hmmm...too many.......may spoil it for listeners.
Loved Ryan of course! Maybe a Leonardo, Matt Damon, Bradley Cooper...powerful movie star but kind and down to earth in real life.
Sure! If I could, I certainly tried!
Story was drawn out in some areas, but I still loved it!
i don't like giving negative reviews, but... seriously, this was a 22hr audiobook & the "action/drama/plot" didn't kick in till around hour 18. i'd say about half of the story coulda been cut out & readers still would have gotten the complete picture. in fact, you could probably start reading at the last 1/4 of the book & be completely fine.
words i'd use to describe this book: long, redundant, predictable, flat. i wanted to slap Taryn more times than i could count. my eyes couldn't roll back far enough in my head at some points. i'm honestly surprised i finished it. i'm gonna pass on the 2nd book.
The narration performance & audio quality were perfect.
It's well written, funny, witty and VERY romantic. Can't wait for more books by this author.
On Dublin street by Samantha Young. Bared to you series by Sylvia Day
She has great voice fluctuations but not over the top like some narrators.
Of all the audible books I've listened to, Love Unscripted and its sequal (Love Unrehearsed) are the ones I have truly enjoyed the most. A wonderful modern love story, where the characters are real and dynamic. Author Tina Reber has a gift for writing dialog that is witty, fresh, and real, while narrator Madelleine Maby gives a terrific performance. Secondary characters are also interesting and I found myself drawn in to the lives of Ryan and Taryn--I really cared about them. I have listened to both novels twice now (which is not something I usually do) because I enjoyed them so much. If a good love story is your thing, give this a listen!
