About the book:
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?
What would it truely be like to have a super star boyfriend? Would you have the power to overlook stupid press lies, and trust with untainted certainty? That is what Taryn and Ryan experience in Unscripted Love. When Ryan meets Taryn he is instantly attracted to the young woman that doesn't fall at his feet or throw herself into his arms. For Ryan she is a breath of fresh air in his claustrophobic bubble that everyone is trying to break into. This was a powerful romance from the start, and I love the story line that offers reality of romance in the Hollywood. Everyone in the world sees the glamour glitz of being rich and famous, but what they easily overlook is the constant attention and scrutinization that these individuals endure. Furthermore, the danger that is included in such admiration from adoring fans. All of this attention for some would be a match made in heaven; but for someone like Ryan that appreciates his privacy and normality its simply an intrusion of his privacy and occasionally terrifying.
It is easy to feel the attraction between these two, and easier to see the warning signs presenting as the story progresses. This is was a powerful and emotional read that kept me up long after bed time. I was a little disappointed to see the constant flux of pace throughout the story from fast action moments to slow and steady build ups, but overall I was able to over look this obstacle and truely enjoy the experience. I see that a sequel is anticipated, and I look forward to seeing what the future will hold for Ryan and Taryn. I am personally hoping to see some resolution in the second book.
