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?

i know there are a lot of "bad" reviews for this book and everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but honestly? i think they're being harsh. tina reber doesn't claim to be a first-class writer and neither did E.L. James from fifty shades. they were just writing a story that they wanted to tell and i for one loved both stories. maybe that makes me a silly heart, but who cares. sometimes escaping the world around us is the best story of all.
there's sweet romance in this book and it's easy to listen to. the narrator did a great job of pulling me in, since i had already "read" these books before they ever came out on audio (but i'm glad they did!).
if you liked the old movie, Knotting Hill, with julia roberts and hugh grant, you'll love this book. it reminded me a lot of that but had more back story. two thumbs up.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
WOW! I was blown away! I did not expect this. I love Maby narration, so I got this for a road trip. Boy, what great way to spend a credit. Totally worth it. Loved this story. Let me say this right now, THIS IS A LOVE STORY! The basic love story rules apply... i.e. girl meets guy, they get together, break up, get back together.
Now with that said... the basic rules has nothing on this book. WOW... such a good story and sooo freakin real. Ryan is a movie star and Tarren is a regular bar owner that has never seen Ryan's movies. It starts there. U have to get this book. It is very very long, but very very good. Each character is sooooo well developed, you feel like you know them personally. I loved it. Even the side characters are well developed with thier own personalities. Great Great!
Ryan and Tarren have issues ( I will not give it away) that try to tear them apart and it so freakin good, I almost wreaked my car listening to this book! I got soo into this book... I felt each characters pain... and let me tell you... they both had pain... SOOOO goood...
Like I said, Maby is such a great narrator, u just get sucked in. Men sound like men and every female is comeplely different...u can totally tell them apart. Maby is right up there with the Sands sisters. I mean no one is good as Xe Sands but Maby is a very close second...and that is saying alot!!!
This is a great buy/credit... Matter of fact... this is a must buy/credit!!!
It's a daunting thought when you are about to dedicate 22.5 hrs of your life to a book BUT this one is SO worth it.
Ryan and Taryn's building blossoming romance is so touching and it's also funny, sweet and crazy. It's filled with secondary characters that you will also come to love as the couple journey on the love train. There's not much hot and heavy but if you're a Happily Ever After kind of person then you should like this.
Worth a credit? If you like a chic lit romance then ABSOLUTELY - but beware - once you start it then it becomes a non-stop ride and I've just bought my tickets onboard book 2.
I think this book along with the second book to this one rank in the top 5 books i love. It is so refreshing to read a well written well thought out book.
I think ryan is my favorite. A well rounded man is what every girl is looking for. He is kind sexy thoughtful but not a cheesy way. He is real.
Taryn was my favorite.
When ryan and taryn met, It just feels real, You feel that flirty feeling you have when you first meet someone.
This book gave me true feelings. The characters were well thought out and developed.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Taryn, a small town bar owner is swept off her feet by the major movie star, Ryan Christensen.... Oh, this story had so much potential!
But... This was one of the most painful books I have ever read. It just drags on and on and on...
The majority of the book is spent talking about how poor Ryan is hounded by the paparazzi and how Taryn wishes she could protect him from his Hollywood lifestyle. If you are looking for hot and steaming scenes the book lacks this as well.
Once Taryn & Ryan are officially a couple the next part of the book is spent reassuring one another that they are indeed in love. Honestly, they said "I love you" so many times it almost became unbelievable.
I found the dialogue quite awkward and forced at times and the constant use of the endearments 'Honey' and 'Dear' made the characters seem really dated to me.
I'm glad I finished this book as it reaffirmed that I definitely do not want to read the sequel. But it does leave me asking the question, if there was always going to be a second book, why would you make the first one so long??
I am looking for a new author I can enjoy. Reviews on this book were good. I have very little vision left and I haven't figured out how to find out if a book is YA or Erotica...I don't want to purchase either. I like a 3 download indept book..interesting characters, dialog, etc. This story has a great setting. I really like the main characters and the accompanying cast of characters. But the dialog was hit and miss...and slow. I thought it might for young adults but no...maybe 20 somethings. I find the dialog juvenile. Teryn is getting upset about a woman he had sex with one time over a year ago...when she didn't even know him and she was engaged to another man at that time. I realize she is gun shy but really who acts like that? And that is just one example. So much was good but the timing, pacing of this romance is just not for me. I am grinding my teeth.
Love a great book that stays with you long after you've finished it.
A long novel that does not lead far...just trickles on without any large waves of plot to pull you deeper. Immature characters do nothing surprising...Predictable and not a little boring. A book best suited for YOUNG adults. Please no 2nd novel...
I absolutely loved, loved this book! I listened to Love Unscripted and Love Unrehearsed back to back and was still sad to see it end. What wonderful writing!! I felt like I knew these characters and looked forward to every moment I could listen. The narrator, Madeleine Maby is fantastic and made the words come alive. I can't wait for the next book by this author. Thank you for the fun journey Ms. Reber.
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.
