    OK, so.I m sitting here sort of stunned by the exorbitantly high rating this book has received Truth be told, I m slightly disgusted I usually hate not finishing books because I don t feel I can give them a thorough review otherwise, but this book was chock full of so much awful that it s actually drained me of the desire to read I ve slogged through my fair share of bad stories for the sake of comprehensive reviews, but I really don t think I can manage this one Every time I look at my Kindle, a nearly irrepressible desire to go do something else overcomes me, and I hear my brain screaming at me to just turn on a video game and try to forget any of this ever happened.It didn t begin this way Sure, I recognized from the start the simplistic writing, the stilted dialogue, the tendency to get comma placement wrong, and the author s story crushing tendency to list everything her protagonist does, but I thought, Hey, it s no worse than some of the other books I ve read How could I have been so wrong First complaint it s just too damn long I feel like I spent about three years reading it, and I m only 25% through I m a fast reader, so fast that my seeming inability to make headway on this story is actually confusing to me When I think of trying to make it all the way to the end, I get that vertigo effect Then I get scared Now, like I said before, it doesn t start off terrible Mediocre, yes, but not terrible I was a little wary when I realized that Taryn is apparently the only woman in the entire state of Rhode Island not willing to drop trou for Ryan Christensen, but that wasn t such a big deal A lot of authors aren t very good at giving their main character a balanced personality Or any personality at all, come to think of it.Anyway, it isn t until Taryn and Ryan meet that things go from mildly bad to oh, my god, stop Stop now Once they begin the process of getting to know one another, things go from uncomfortable and awkward for them to uncomfortable and awkward for the reader Their smarmy flirting is nothing short of nauseating, and the author gets a serious thumbs down for employing one of the lamest tactics in writing the completely pointless let s quote our favorite movies to prove we have things in common ploy The scene is bad enough, but when it s compounded with the author s blatant disregard for all rules of writing, things get even worse Apparently Ms Reber missed that all important lesson Show Don t Tell, because the reader is continually treated to having the obvious pointed out to them Taryn and Ryan are attempting to distract each other while playing pool After reading about both of their attempts which succeeded in making the target lose concentration and thus, miss their shot , I was treated to this I see He laughed You don t play fair either I grinned and shrugged we both were busted trying to distract each other Then there s this little gem Ryan takes Taryn to have dinner with a couple of his friends, and these friends have a little girl named Cami Obviously, this is the part in the book where the author attempts to make her readers swoon over how good Ryan is with children while simultaneously making Ryan obsessed with Taryn for her obvious knack with children Come here you Ryan scooped her up and kissed her on her cheeks before spinning her around in his arms to tickle her belly Her giggles were precious First, gag me Second, here s the very next sentence They obviously knew each other very well You just showed us, don t tell us.Some of my other favorite awful lines Looking him in the eyes was like taking a shot of truth serum I brushed my teeth to rid my mouth of the nasty taste and washed my body twice to rid my pores of illness Every time I tried to reach for his finger, he d move his hand away and chuckle Our little game was fun Again, do we really need to be told their little game was fun Is it not enough that we read about them laughing while being flirtatious Oh, my bad, I thought Taryn wasn t having fun I thought she was attempting to draw attention to that fact by laughing, smiling, and playing along How silly of me For some unknown reason, I followed him over to the stage Unknown reason It couldn t have perhaps been the fact that they were conversing while he walked around her bar Captain Obvious would love this Twice, in just the first quarter of the book, Taryn repeated something she said to someone almost in the same paragraph Imagine a conversation going like this I thought we d take the boat out on the lake, do some fishing Youyou fish Sure, that s why I brought you here, I thought we d take the boat out on the lake Or like this Hey, I thought I d hire an extra bartender to help us out It s just too much for the two of us Yeah, that s a good idea, we ve been getting slammed lately Yeah, just until the movie people are gone I just think it s too much for just the two of us The amount of cliched metaphors are frequent and glaring, but I think my favorite was, He was like a kid in a candy store, so happy and relaxed If you re going to use a metaphor, at least use it correctly Kids in candy stores aren t generally relaxed, they re excited, hence the reason you would use said metaphor for someone who is excited Sigh Oh, but that reminds me Ryan can t seem to stop exclaiming things I suppose I shouldn t be surprised since any author who carelessly overuses metaphors, similes, and descriptors is a prime candidate for the overuse of the exclamation point, but it adds another awkward layer to this blunder sandwich Any time Taryn does says something that Ryan likes, he has a little mini celebration, saying things like, Nice and Good job It s completely condescending and weird At one point, Taryn is rewarded for a good pool shot with a Gentle high five hand slap a term which, after having read it aloud to my brother, caused him to insist that I finish reading this book, if for nothing else but to glean gems like that one That s not even the worst of it, however Even off putting is his exclamations of otherwise commonplace utterances More often than not, he responds to Taryn s simple questions and teasing with exclamations In fact, I think the only times he doesn t is when he s been thrown into one of his brooding moods by the paparazzi When he s not unnecessarily enraged, however, he comes across as so disturbingly exuberant that I couldn t help but picture him as one of those insanely perky people who are always so chipper Come to think of it, Ryan just might be a dangerously unbalanced individual Several times, within the same page, he will go from this To this Oh, and what the hell is with all the reminders Every other freakin page, we re reminded, via Taryn s mind numbingly monotonous inner monologue, just how insecure and damaged she is Oh, there s no way he wants to be with me, he could have any woman he wants Besides, he ll just end up a cheating bastard like my ex fiance, Thomas. Yes, I already knew who Thomas was, I did not need the full title I wonder if, Ex fiance Thomas is his full name Readers only need to be shown something once, maybe twice There s a certain wisdom in the old, Shake it than twice and you re playing with it logic, and it can be applied to several different areas in life In writing a book, if you have to tell your readers something than twice, this the overall feeling they get Either you re this stupid or you think we are.Now let s talk about how often these dunderheads laugh, chuckle, snicker, giggle, smirk, smile, and grin Seemingly every sentence uttered ends on a laugh, giggle, or snicker Ms Reber couldn t even have the decency to throw in a good chortle just to mix things up But the people in this book laugh so much one can t help wondering if maybe they re high Or perhaps just simple in the head At one point, Taryn and Ryan both smirked and grinned at each other I hadn t realized those two things were separate and could be done simultaneously Who knew Slightly disquieting than the possibility of synonyms being antonyms was Ryan s ever present stalker smile Seriously, the guy never wipes the damn grin off his face, and it s that kind of unconscious antagonism that will end up getting him punched by a girl like me who thinks guys who smile constantly are creepy Point made I ve forgiven certain authors for a lot of things, not least of which is bad grammar While Ms Reber isn t as bad as some, her understanding of certain technicalities is lacking There are commas where there shouldn t be commas, open spaces where there should be commas, sentence structure is lackluster at best, there are some spelling errors, and the pace is awful As I ve already stated, the overuse of similes and metaphors is astounding Taryn s mouth hangs open like a fish out of water , she gazes lovingly at Ryan , Ryan kisses her passionately Enough with the descriptors already Just stop There s an absurd amount of whispering from certain characters, the characters themselves are cliche s, thus highly predictable, and being subjected to Taryn s thought processes regarding her doubts is akin to Chinese water torture They should use this book at GitmoAs for any humor Ms Reber attempted,while I m sure there are some who are absolutely astounded by her wit, I waswell, this about sums it up My husband claims I have to finish reading it in order to completely justify my review I both agree and disagree, citing my intense dislike after only ingesting 25% of it as evidence that I will feel no differently once I ve managed to wade through the rest of its shlocky nonsense But I may get up the energy to finish it I know I d have ammunition material if I read the whole thing, but how long can I reasonably make this review Guess we ll have to wait and see.Edit I ve managed to make it to 41% How I m not sure Extreme boredom, I guess Which, sadly, this book is helping to alleviate purely by means of completely pissing me off A note, Ms Reber, the phrase is Every once in a while, not every once and a while If you fancy yourself a writer, you should probably at least attempt to have common English phrases under control.I m not going to read any of this book It s bringing out entirely too much rage, and the temptation to add even gifs to this review is nearly overpoweringand I think it s long enough I can t resist one , though Why would anyone read this book Oh, right

    I don t want anyone else just you And no matter where I am, wherever I go, you re the only one who is holding my heart RyanI was told that this book was basically like Thoughtless minus Denny and boy were they freaking RIGHT For those of you who were also fans of Thoughtless, remember those heart racing moments where you just had to keep turning the pages and probably couldn t stop even if you wanted to Well oh boy does this book have you doing that too I swear I barely blinked for the final 25% The story is told from the perspective of Taryn Mitchell, the owner of a bar in a small town which is being used to shoot the next major huge Hollywood movie Starring in this movie is the world s biggest, hottest, most coveted celebrity actor Ryan Christensen think RPattz at the height of the Twilight fame except maybe even bigger He is running away from rabid fans one day and ends up in taking refuge in her bar and the rest is history.I really like how Taryn s character was not infatuated with his movie star persona she hadn t even seen any of his movies and how Ryan was such a down to earth, normal guy dealing with uber mega fame Both their characters were instantly likable Ryan is totally adorable He definitely made the book boyfriend list I loved that their relationship progressed at a believable pace they had instant attraction but didn t just jump into bed instantly, they flirted, got to know each other, their relationship developed it was really fun to read Ryan and Taryn were adorable together I loved how crazy they were about each other and how hard they both fought to make their relationship work no matter what Gently he rolled me onto my back his eyes opened and locked onto mine Are you sure cuz I want you than air right now Ryan I loved that the book dealt with pretty much every situation a couple in their position big time romantic hero lead movie star regular girl would have to deal with in real life dealing with tabloids printing lies, being followed by rabid fans, cameras, paparazzi literally everywhere , crazy obsessed stalkers, feelings of jealousy dealing with him having to kiss hot actresses for his movies , invasion of privacy, the importance of staying grounded and having a close knit family, being able to trust each other, dealing with constant separation shooting schedules , etc The biggest question in my mind was whether peace and insanity could survive together in harmony But what made all of that points above bearable was how functional they were as a couple They talked through their issues There was very little irrationality in either of their actions Sure there were misunderstandings and drama but I could definitely understand how those situations arose, and it wasn t out of stupidity.Thankfully though, there is no cheating in this book And while it doesn t end with a HEA, you definitely get the idea that they are headed for one Its not a cliffhanger either, but lets just say, there is a lot to their story.I think Ryan sums the story up pretty well its our crazy story Its been ours, only ours There s been a lot of romance, sometimes way too much drama Very memorable comedy, a few pulse racing action scenes We ve also had out fair share of suspense and raw terror, and unfortunately gut wrenching heartache too But through it all you ve loved me, unconditionally, and I know how fortunate I am to have your love the scene goes on to happy mushy stuff which I won t spoil for you lol Basically, if you liked Thoughtless, you are almost certainly guaranteed to like this And if you haven t read Thoughtless, and you are just a fan of romance, you are almost certain to love this The characters feel very real, the story is engaging and the love story is utterly adorable Here are some quotes Advice from Taryn s best friend they give the best advice, no lol You know what I think I think you should stop all this nonesense and screw the shit out of him until he passes out from exhaustionyou ll have to feed him, of course, to keep his energy level up, but make sure you hide his clothes so he can t get dressed Men can t run when they re naked Ryan you know damn well you can get any girl you want whenever you want There are women all around the globe who would pay to have sex with you He started laughing How much money do you think I could make from all these women who want to have sex with me Billions Really Help me drag a mattress out into the front yard You can sell lemonade and I ll just fuck people all day he cackled Do I have to make a poster and scream Ryan, Ryan I kidded The only time I want to hear you scream my name is when I m making love to you Although you did call me God the other night That s acceptable, too For of my reviews, come to Or join

    I read this book based on all the great reviews. I m still trying to figure out the hype It dragged on forever, touching on every possible thing that could have happened The writing style was very free flow, weeks pass in a couple of paragraphs or minutes take pages and pages I remember getting to the last page, seeing the words sequel and thinking. wtf why As a love story, it s got a lot of intrigue, and the concept star aspect was novel to me, but both of the main characters were so one dimensional There was really no character development for either Taryn or Ryan, which I think really was the catalyst for the story feeling so unfulfilling to me In someways, it was actually a regression for Taryn she went from being an independent woman to a co dependent, hysterical mess I m still trying to figure out how any of her wonderfully devoted friends would have been willing to sit by or even support this relationship that completely obliterated any personality she had The ending felt contrived Taryn and Ryan were woven into a co dependent relationship where neither one of them were willing to admit that something had to give, but somehow, all the distrust was wrapped up with an engagement ring Maybe the sequel will address some of these issues, but I don t know that I d be willing to invest the time into seeing it through.Update I actually reread this book again, thinking I had misjudged it I actually think I had overrated it Reading it left me morose and grumpy all day.

    Unfortunately I m not going to finish this book It s that simple Overly polite, quirky and enthusiastic people freak me out This is similar to the dialogue throughout the eternally long book Ryan Good Morning, my love Do you want some coffee Taryn Oh, I can t believe you asked you huge, handsome movie actor Yes, I would love a cup of coffeeare you really talking to me Ryan It s just so hardwill you really give up your life for my undeserving self Taryn Darling, how could you ever doubt me Let s go to the park and feed the ducks Ryan Let me hold the door for you, Oh almighty goddess Taryn Thanks I love your compliments There s not much else to say I gave the book two stars One because I had to, the second because I actually thought the plot had some potential.Sadly mistaken If Ms Reber can get away with this crap then I ll be the next Stephanie Meyer.They should do a sketch on this with Zooey Deschanel as Taryn and Bill Hader as Ryan.

    Ok so what is with the high ratings Goodreads I have never felt so let down by reviews and I m still struggling to understand the love for this book Love Unscripted was like, literary blue balls The book is 670 pages long and there is no climax to the story until about 85% into the book What the hell You could have pulled about 300 pages and it wouldn t have affected the story at all It was torture, but I felt like it wouldn t be fair to write a review, to warn my friends unless I saw the book through I love you friends, but I won t be doing that again The book progressed so slowly and the same things were reiterated over and over hes famous why would he want to be with me he will find someone else will i be enough OK ALREADY The characters are pretty hip and young, Taryn owns a pub and he is a famous actor, so why the crap referring to each other as sweetheart and honey I could overlook it once or twice but this is how they spoke throughout the book.As slow as the book progressed, there were events in the story that were so rushed, and sloppy that I actually had to go back thinking I accidentally skipped over pages This happened often Also, I am a huge fan of exclamation points, I dont apologize for that but even I thought they were so grossly over used, so much so that I was starting to think that Ryan was actually Armenian and just spoke loudly like we do Done I cant even go on there is so much wrong with this book I could probably go on forever and right now Im sort of pissed lol Maybe I should have waited a few days to calm down.I know authors put their heart and soul into books and I hate to leave such a terrible review but I seriously felt like I wasted the last three days of my life in this book and I just want to make sure my friends dont lose any precious reading time.

    I m a guy who never writes reviews, nor do I read Romantic or erotic novels However I was intrigued to find out what the hoopla was with 50 Shades of Grey Thank goodness for my kindle, or I would of received a bunch of crap from family, friends and co workers When I finished the last book in the series, I wanted .Next read pointed to Love Unscripted, so I purchased it I was so wrapped in the characters, I couldn t put this book down This book is so well written, characters so real, and emotional I m not an emotional guy mind you, I don t cry during movies or while reading books By the end of this read, however I had tears running down my face and a box of Kleenex by my side , so many up and downs, so many twist, turns geeeshThis book has made me a fan and is a new favorite I m anxiously waiting for the second book and the movie in the works.Just my thoughts..

    I think I m going to put this book on the shelf for the time being I m at 30% and having a difficult time staying focused or interested in the story I think this is one of those books that work when it s cold outside, you re snuggled in a blanket, and in the mood for a long, well written, but drawn out story That s not the mood I m in right now.

    Review posted on My Secret Romance MERCY This is how a romance novel should be written What a refreshing read Love Unscripted is not a lust at first sight romance story And thank goodness for that There are too many of those reads out there.Nothing comes easy in life Anything worth having is worth fighting for The love Ryan and Taryn share is definitely worth fighting for and anyone could see that Love Unscripted is sexy and addicting There s a thick aura of sensuality surrounding the story that makes it difficult to breathelet alone read Ryan and Taryn are so madly in love with each other that it s beautiful to read The passion that ignites between them is one you ll be wishing for The passionOh the passion Love Unscripted is about two people who meet by chance under chaotic circumstances They start out as friends and then it turns into something While I do love my lustful erotic reads, it s so welcoming to find a book where characters have to work through realistic struggles, not just one time, but time and time again Yes, there was chemistry and heat between Ryan and Taryn from the moment they met, but they didn t dive head first into a relationship, they tested the waters and not just for a week or a chapter or two I find that there aren t too many romance novels out there written like Love Unscripted, which makes Tina Reber stand out amount authors.This is not a quick and fast read It s nearly 700 pages long and yes I do think some fat could be cut, I also think it was necessary for the development of the story We watch the struggles between Ryan, a Hollywood A Rated actor, prove to bar owner Taryn, that the stories printed on the coves of the tabloid are false I mean, how would you feel if your boyfriend was the most sought after man alive and seen in compromising positions It s not easy being in the limelight or having people constantly try to rip All you have to go on is his word Trust is not something easily accepted for anyone and Tina does an exceptional job proving that to us, but also by proving that it can be very rewarding in the end It takes a lot to open yourself up and put yourself out there like that This relationship was no easy feat for Ryan and Taryn There were heated arguments, some easily worked through and others that made my heartache and stomach turn to knots Then there were very memorable moments between them and some that made me sick with worry I truly loved every single page of this book Love Unscripted had obstacles to overcome and characters that anyone can relate to From the lake fishing to the fighting over the publicist, to the song Ryan sang at the end There wasn t a dull moment Tina Reber is a new favorite author for me and I cannot wait to read Love Unrehearsed A moment of truth I went into with book with no expectations I started following Tina Reber on facebook and found that I really liked the woman Her comments, her updates, pictures, her sense of humor, all very important when reading a book It s initially what made me read her book And thank the heavens for that I can t believe I m about to say this, but thank you facebook for showing me to Tina s books Without facebook, I may not have ever read her book and what a pity that would have been.Favorite lines Will post soon This book was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.
