Review: Love Unscripted by Tina Reber

Love Unscripted was a delightful read. Ms. Reber provides some interesting insight into the lives of celebrities and all they give up in order to do what they love. Everyday things we take for granted are things they can’t do. At the same time, she gave us a wonderful romance between two people looking for family and home.

Taryn and Ryan meet when she saves him from a pack of marauding fans. From the moment they meet, Ryan and Taryn become fast friends and they both want more, but are afraid to move forward. Taryn gets pulled into Ryan’s world as he romances her as only a movie star can. Ryan gets lulled into Taryn’s world as it’s what he really wants, normalcy. It’s a sweet story with some unconventional romance.

I like the way Ms. Reber gives us some insight into the lives of celebrities. It was interesting to see how doing simple things can cause anxiety for them as they face hordes of crazed fans. These fans can keep them from going for simple walk down the street or going on a normal date. Crazed fans can create even more problems as they threaten the very lives these stars live. Security and bodyguards become the everyday norm for the famous and those that surround them.

I found the secondary characters in this book added so much to the story of Taryn and Ryan. Taryn’s friends are fiercely loyal to Taryn and will do anything to protect her. Ryan’s family and friends are just as protective and loyal. They added so much to the story as they acted how friends in real life act. They look out for each other and take care of each other. They also take in those their friends love and treat them as one of their own.

I really enjoyed this story as Ms. Reber created a wonderful romance between two people living very different lives. It was interesting to see how she wove their lives together and the challenges they faced. Everything from paparazzi to crazy, delusional fans conspired to keep them apart. But Ryan and Taryn kept fighting through it all to get to their HEA. At one point I wasn’t sure if they would get it. Things were looking good at the end of the story, but who knows what life will bring to them in the second book Love Unrehearsed. I’ll have to read it to find out!
