Love Unscripted - Tina Reber(*)

Genre; Romance/Contemporary
Release date; March 6th 2010
Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he ever think that accepting a role in an unknown film would toss his career into overdrive. His new fame has cost him dearly; anonymity is no longer an option. His fans stalk him, the paparazzi hound him, and Hollywood studios all want a piece of him. Despite all of that, Ryan Christensen craves the most basic of human needs - to have love in his heart and privacy in his life.

Taryn Mitchell, the story's protagonist, is a realist. She's been feigning contentment, running the family pub in Seaport, Rhode Island, while quietly nursing her own internal heartaches. Her feet are fairly glued to the ground and she doesn't buy into all the hype that has descended on her tiny, coastal town. In her world, men are safe if they're kept at a distance.

Fate has other plans for these two when their paths cross one sunny afternoon. A group of female fans has attacked him, leaving his shirt torn, his face cut, and Ryan in obvious distress. Bonds between them form from the most dramatic of circumstances while jealousy, insecurity, and the stress of his celebrity life try to tear them apart.

Through all the tabloid lies, secrecy, and pressure, can Taryn's peace and Ryan's high-profile insanity live together in harmony
This was long, very long. I felt like i spent hours reading to hardly make a dent in it. However, i enjoyed it. It was a refreshing change, when i heard about this, i thought it was another girl falls for a movie star and that's that. Oh no, Taryn and Ryans relationship is full of drama. I mean full of it, however, they tackle it head on and its not just skirted around like other novels. I was a fan of Taryn from start to finish, a strong independent woman through and through, and i am glad the author left her like that and didn't change her at all. It's nice to see a woman not running to be with the star for once, and therefor gave the novel alot more realism for a change. I felt the scenes were set well, and nothing felt rushed (perhaps why it was so long) but in the end, it was a well written romance and i adored it.
