My Rating: 8 out of 10
Sequel to Love Unscripted.
When A-list film actor Ryan Christensen ducked into her pub to escape his screaming fans, never in a million years did Taryn Mitchell think her life was about to change forever. But now, eight months later, after a whirlwind romance, Taryn wakes up in Ryan’s Hollywood hotel room to find a diamond to die for on her left ring finger—and her face splashed across the cover of every gossip magazine.
Ryan’s very public proposal is catnip to the tabloids, his management team is worried, and Taryn must figure out how a small town girl like her fits into his glittering world. What does it take to make a relationship work amidst telephoto lenses, daily on-set temptations, and jealous fans who will stop at nothing to keep you from walking down the aisle with the man of your dreams?
With no script to follow and no chance for a dress rehearsal, Taryn and Ryan will be forced to take the plunge and risk everything to make their love last
My Thoughts: So, to be totally and completely honest with you, I really didn't think that Love Unscripted needed a sequel. Not going to lie, I appreciated the sequel, but I didn't find that it was crucial to have. I liked seeing how the characters matured, and how their lives turned out. Especially Marie (wtf happened there?!). But, some of the plot kind of bothered me. At some points it felt like the author was just writing the sequel because the publishing company wanted her too (which very may well be the case, who knows). Plot lines were introduced that I thought needed much more explanation, and a little bit more closure than we got. I know there is technically a third, but it follows the story of two other characters I won't name because it's a spoiler. I don't think I'll bother picking that one up. I liked seeing what happened with everyone, and for the most part, I like where the story went. Good read. Long read.
Final Thoughts: Good, but not really necessary. I'll probably re-read both Love Unscripted and Love Unrehearsed again.
