My Review

The second book of Tina Rebers ‘Love’ books. Unrehearsed follows off from Love Unscripted with Ryan and Taryn engaged, which happened in her pub and now her face is splashed across tabloids, announcing their engagement, must to the annoyance of his Publicist and Manager, who seem to despise Taryn, and tell Ryan to that he cannot go public with his engagement as he has worked so hard to get to this point in his career – and guess what, he goes along with them. But he finally comes to his senses and lets the world know hes engaged and sacks his publicist.

Taryn follows Ryan around the world to premieres for his films, leaving her pub in the capable hands of her best friend but as she is traveling around the world, back home things arent quite so rosy for Marie, as she has split up from her husband and has been living in Taryn;s apartment above the pub, which kills Taryn as shes not with her best friend, but everything in Maries life finally comes to when she finds love with Ryan’s bodyguard and she too trains to be a bodyguard and ends up protecting Taryn when Ryan’s not around.

Throughout the book, Ryan and Taryn become secure in their relationship, not letting anyone get in between them and Ryan – a private person – is finding it hard to be in the spotlight as he gets anxiety attacks because of it and he desperately wants to live a normal life, away from all the paparazzi. Because of the invasion, jail comes a-knocking for both of them at different parts of the book.

From both books, its been a long journey to get their happily-ever-after and they do get it eventually. Throughout all the pressure of Ryan being in the public eye, Taryn having a celebrity boyfriend and every dramatic moment that happened during both books, they finally get their fairytale moment.

Love Unscripted – Tina Reber (Book #1)

Synopsis

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?

My Review

As much as I really enjoyed reading this book, at times I felt like it dragged on and I just wanted to get it over with. 659 pages are a lot when some of the story could have been cut down but as a book worm, i soldiered on to finish it and find out what happens, even if i was wishing it would end, which has never happened to me with any book i have read.

I did love Ryan and Taryn together, especially the way they met and how her best friend was utterly infatuated with Ryan. They start out as friends, Taryn’s pub being a refuge for Ryan after a hard day of shooting for his film and a place for him to relax without his over-exited fans pawning over him. But as all friendships with celebrities who hide away for peace and quiet, the fans found out he was staying with Taryn and so her pub became a place for his fans to congregate, hoping to catch a glimpse of him.

Over the course of the book, Ryan and Taryn begin a relationship, much to the annoyance of his female co-star and much to the delight of her friends. Their relationship didnt come without drama, from death threats, stalkers and co-stars but other than that, it seemed everything was kind of perfect, apart from the massssssive drama that happened right before the end of the book. They did good to hold their grounds but I know if i was Taryn, i would have been a hell of a lot more jealous than she was, and i know most people would be too.

As a book worm, I cant just read a book over a few days, it has to be read right there and then, and this book can be either, but if you’re not like me, then I’d recommend taking your time as when i get excited over a book, that’s it.
