tabloid headlines, the relentless paparazzi, and the jealous fans who seem determined to tear them apart Read of my reviews and ramblings at Ana s Attic Sexy TalesReview of 2nd reading, one year later First thing you need to know about Love Unscripted by Tina Reber, besides that I absolutely loved it even the second time, is that it is L O N G This is not a bad thing Not at all This is a like reading a book trilogy all in one And I would have been happy and satisfied if it ended after Love Unscripted But when you find out there is a sequel, you just want to squeeee I read Love Unscripted in September of 2011 I have read probably about 225 books since then, but this one has stood the test for me Knowing that Love Unrehearsed comes out next week, I decided to do a re read so it is nice and fresh in my mind Normally I post at Ana s Attic daily Did you notice I skipped a day I couldn t put the book down Since I know all of you who read my blog can understand that obsession, I figured you d let me slide.Taryn Mitchell owns a bar by the ocean and lives above it in Rhode Island Ryan Christensen think Robert Pattinson, fame wise is filming the second movie based on a book trilogy nearby Taryn isn t the type to be star struck She has never read the books, or seen any of his movies, and doesn t understand why her friends and every woman in a 2 hour radius is screaming his name One morning, as she steps out the front door of her bar, Ryan comes running down the street with screaming fans chasing him He ducks through the bar asking for the back door, and the fans think he escaped But he had accidentally used the door to Taryn s apartment In the midst of a panic attack, scratched up and with ripped clothes, Taryn let him calm down, cleaned him up, and ended up spending the day together in the closed bar.From the minute they started talking, I was smiling Both characters were so real and likable Ryan is so sweet and adorable, and Taryn, though a little too perfect for him was totally likable One thing I really loved is how they took their time falling in love Their relationship developed at a pretty slow pace at the beginning Taryn was afraid of getting hurt when he leaves, and Ryan just wanted to take it slow to not scare her away This would be my thoughts and it was her friend s You know what I think I think you should stop all this nonsense and screw the shit out of him until he passes out from exhaustion you 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 Taryn s BFFAs they became a serious couple, you couldn t help but fall even further in love with them 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 RyanSure, they had a lot of realistic issues thrown at them Mostly the paparazzi, and screaming fans, but they dealt with them well If the whole book was like the first 2 3, I would have loved it and given it 5 happy stars But then, BAM Shit hit the fan, and everything started happening I couldn t put the book down during the first 2 3, but during the last 2 3, there was NO WAY And this was a re read I laughed a lot, I cried, I swooned I totally fell in love with Ryan all over again I love that he never lost his down to earth personality He loved acting, but hated the crap that went with it I loved this book just as much, if not , the second time around 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 RyanLoves Ryan His parents Taryn s friends The length of the book allowed Tina to tell every little detail, and I loved them all The slow warmup to love Taryn s insecurities were so real, I would have felt all the same things.Things I wish happened I couldn t find a dislike I wish Ryan would have said screw you to his publicist and everyone else and screamed to the world how in love he was I wish there was some hot sex Some good stuff was alluded to they both had sore hips one day Why exactly I want to know Ryan was such a boy next door sweetheart, but he sounded hot in bed Prove it Re read rating 5 stars, 3.5 HeatThe end was happy I was good with it Is it a HEA Not really More like a Happy for now But lucky us, because book 2, Love Unrehearsed, comes out on September 14th Since I read Love Unscripted last year, I became Facebook friends with Tina Reber I have to tell you, she is AWESOME She is funny as hell, has AMAZING taste in men, she posts hotties all the time , great taste in books, and she promised Love Unrehearsed will be even hotter Tina will also be visiting us at Ana s Attic I ll post information very soon, but I can t wait Love Unscripted 659 juicy pages will be available for all e readers on September 10th Until then, you can get it at.Original review from September 2011 Wow wow wow I LOVE LOVE LOVED it Notice the repeats Well, obviously I felt pretty strongly about it I m exhausted because I barely slept, having to finish the book For 2 days all I did was smile, then my heart broke and I cried and I was happy again..The fact that it was so nice and long was the best thing We took our time getting to know the characters, and they took their time falling in love or at least admitting it I loved all the characters in the book, even the few I hated Ryan needs to get his ass out there and scream from the rooftops as he said, and maybe Taryn wouldn t be so insecure But who can blame her I just hope in the next book Ryan keeps that part of his personality that would never be a cheater, and that Taryn doesn t overreact But then again, there wouldn t be much of a story then would there I must say, at first I thought it was just a nice, meaty, feel good love story Superstar falls for ordinary girl forever.the end And honestly, the way it was written, that would have been OK I was loving it The first half of the book or I couldn t stop smiling But putting the realistic obstacles a couple like that would face just sealed the deal for me 5 stars. 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.
