original title - Love Unscripted
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

Here is a preview for the book:

My Summary

Taryn is a resourceful woman.  She owns her own business (a Pub) and is an entrepreneur in many other business projects.  She may not have blood relatives but she has a very close circle of friends that are her family.  Recently healing a wounded heart she has sworn off men and focused on her work.

In the beginning we see a Taryn that works very hard for her business and is constantly harassed by her friends to give another guy a chance.  Seaport is usually a quiet place but has been recently sent to the pits due to a major movie star that has been filming a movie there.  Tons of fans have been coming into town following this big stars steps sending the town in a frenzy. 

Roads are blocked, swarms of women screaming and crying and all for Ryan Christensen.  Taryn doesn’t get what all the fuzz is about and she might be the only woman that has not seen any of his movies.  Having no choice the TV’s on her pub are constantly changed to follow the news and updates about Ryan and every girl around her drools over him.

She knows he is handsome, she can see it but she does not understand why someone would obsess so badly over a human being. 

One day just as she was getting ready to open her bar a stampede of women runs after a man.  The poor guy has broken clothes and looks scared as hell.  Luck has really played a big one her time because Ryan Christensen ends up hiding in her bar for dear life.

My thoughts

This book was simply breathtaking and different from any other book I have read.  To see the transformation of these two characters was to witness a miracle.  I thought their relationship would be a train wreck but with ever page turn I fell in love with Ryan and Taryn.

I cannot wait for book 2.  The cliffhanger at the end left me wanting more.  I also like that this book was really long and I dragged it as much as possible because I didn’t want it to end.

I give this book 5 out of 5 hearts and strongly recommend it.
