Love Unscripted (Love #1) by Tina Reber

Published March 6, 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? (Goodreads)

Review: 4 Stars

"I don't want anyone else - just you. And no matter where I am, wherever I go, you're the only one who is holding my heart." ~Ryan

SOOOO, after reading Love Unscripted I truly feel for actors and actresses. I think Ms. Reber did a great job portraying the hectic schedule of celebrities and the CRAZY lifestyle they endure. 

Ryan Christensen just wanted to be as normal as he possible could in a lifestyle that had his moves plastered all over tabloids at every turn. 

When Ryan met Taryn, a pub owner from Rhode Island, he found the normalcy that he was looking for. 

It was the crazy people they both encountered that tested their commitment, trust and had each wondering if this was what love really is about. 

I really enjoyed this book from the beginning. It was a bit lengthy; however the great description and well thought out story line attributed to the length. I really enjoyed how the characters were so planned out and introduced. I feel that the reader has a connection with the main characters and their circle of friends. 

I am absolutely stoked to read the second installment of the Love series, Love Unrehearsed (Love #2).
