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?

Yes I would recommend this to family and friends. This is how, in life a man should treat a women and I enjoyed the story, completely.
I was shocked that she got pregnant, then lost the baby. And how he reacted to the lose. Broke my heart.
Yes , did a great job. How she wanted to stand on her own feet and not take him for granted. Keeping her business and just being a strong women threw out the story. Knowing she also had men wanting her also, ex lovers and men at the bar she owned hitting on her.
Most definitely. I have listened to it a few more times also.
I am torn, knowing that this is how being an actor-actress, must be in real life. Wondering.....
Madeleine has a nice and pleasant voice.
There were some unexpected twist which kept me glued to listening.
Definitely - it was a wonderful escape from reality. Tina Reber took the cliche of "rich perfect guy comes in and falls in love with a normal woman" and turned into something both believable and imperfect. I could absolutely imagine the story playing out in real life.
Ryan, because he loved Taryn so much that he was willing to fight for her. I liked that Taryn was an intelligent woman, although at times she tended to be a bit overdramatic at times.
I didn't think that the sequel lived up to the original, but having said that I am not ready to say goodbye to their world quite yet. Please write more Ryan/Taryn stories!
I totally loved this book. I was so happy when this one was over the book continued in another book. I will always read any more books Tina Reber writes. You will LOVE Tarin and Ryan. This story is so complete I really love it. You are immediate part of Tarin's life as a pub owner who meets and loves a movie star. Ryan is so wonderful like a lot of us feel the movies stars we like are. Living in his and Tarins world is amazing.
I would recommend this book to everyone! It was funny and made you think about what celebrities go through doing what they love.
I compare this author's writing style to Nora Roberts and Donna Kauffman. The level of character development was great and it really made you "see" the characters.
My favorite character was Ryan, he was so troubled by certain aspects of his career but he loved doing what he did so he suffered through it.
YES YES YES! I lost sleep over this one but it was totally worth it!
The only thing I would say that I didn't like was it was a little on the mushy side but that's just my opinion. I'm sure others would find the lovey lovey stuff to be the right amount.
I really thought the movie star idea was going to be great, but this book turned out to be long and laking any really exciting plot. I gave it 2 stars because I was able to finish it but the hole time I was thinking about what I was going to download next.The thing about a well done first person narrative is that you feel like you can be her/him. You love the character you have become. In this book I just thought the main character was an idiot and I wanted to yell at her all the time. The narrator did an OK job except I think she kept getting sick or something. In the middle of the book it sounded like the narrator changed, but there was no credit to another narrator. It was just inconsistent and distracting. If you are looking for a great book you can't put down go check out Colleen Hoover's Hopeless. It is well done! (I am a woman using her husbands profile btw)
