Love Unscripted by Tina Reber
Love Unscripted was the first indie I ever read. Ryan and Taryn pulled me into the world community I now review for. I read Love long before Ms. Reber signed her books to Atria, I remember being hesitant to read something without a label, best decision ever! Ryan is still the ultimate book boyfriend, Taryn is still strong and feisty. I miss them, I miss Ryan fleeing the paparazzi in the alley, I miss the pool table, I miss the REAL connection. (FYI, I will have to re-read after posting this!)
Ryan Christensen is the ultimate package, he is dead sexy, a movie star, wanted by all. He is filming a movie in a small town, Taryn lives there, she owns a bar, has her life planned out, she has no need for a man right now, let alone one that comes with all the baggage of somebody famous. That is, until Ryan is running from the photogs right past Taryn's back door, she lets him in. Reading how nervous he is that she's going to fangirl on him was one of my favorite parts. I wonder if this would be Tina's reaction to meeting me face to face?! Haha. We embark on a journey of the ultimate true love story. It's taken at a real-life pace, it's not a love-at-first site, let's go make babies and have no problems ever, kind of book. We feel every emotion, see real issues play out, and get a front row seat to the growth of a relationship.
Be ready for a long read, I mean really long, I believe it took me around a week to read #1. Every single word was necessary, and keeping a reader involved the entire time is quite the talented author. Tina Reber is an incredible writer, woman, and I do not doubt for one moment that she has experienced her own great-love story, nobody can write a character like Ryan without knowing those emotions first-hand. Make sure you all check out Love Unrehearsed next!
