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?
RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
I have a high expectation of Love Unscripted from just reading the summary alone. An actor? I can imagine the paparazzi and the wild chase! Exciting!
Ryan and Taryn crossed path while he was on the run from his fans and they clicked instantly. It is amusing to read that Taryn didn't know much about Ryan and thus wasn't infatuated in him like his fans did. It's fun to read their progress! Love Unscripted dealt with the things that are associated with fame. There's his fans, paparazzi, tabloids... you name it, Love Unscripted has it. The story is definitely realistic.
The last few parts of the book was really heart wrenching and then it gets a little harder to continue. I feel like shaking Taryn at some parts, especially on her trust issue. Nevertheless, Love Unscripted is still an enjoyable romance read.
