Love Unscripted

Love Unscripted
by: Tina Reber

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you have some major reading stamina.
Category: Adult

A movie star and a bar owner from Seaside, Rhode Island develop a relationship while he is in town filming a movie. They both have trust issues and he obviously has major paparazzi issues. Lots of things threatening to tear them apart as they try to be together.

Things I LIked: I definitely enjoyed the story. There was tension, heat, love, lots of character & relationship development. The entire 600+ page book takes place over maybe a 2-3 month period, so there is more character & relationship development than there is in other books.

I appreciated the fact that this one didn’t have them breaking up over & over to deal with everything. I’ve read other books with movie stars & “common folk” and they break up and spend tons of time apart. With this one, they actually committed to working through it and I appreciated that they did that - that the way they developed drama was different than other books with similar topics.

I loved her friends!! Pete, Gary, Tammy, Marie! They were great!! I really enjoyed that side of it and again - I love the relationships!!

Things I Didn’t: First of all, this could have been at least 100 pages shorter and it probably would’ve been better. There came a point where it was just dragging on.

Some of the conflict that was created with the other characters was a little overkill. Especially with the one toward the end (trying to avoid spoilers). I can say that people definitely tried to tear them apart and I just didn’t always understand the motivations behind those things. Some of it felt a little forced.

Overall: Good, very long, story.

Finished on June 28, 2015
