Review of Love Unscripted by Tina Reber

Love Unscripted (Love, #1)
A Predictable Read

Love Unscripted a contemporary romance novel about the trials and tribulations of a self-made woman and an up and coming actor.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley. Thank you to the author for the opportunity to read her book.

The story line is predictable and the writing sounds somewhat immature although the story is told in the POV of a woman in her upper twenties. The book is quite long and all the details about the mundane things in their lives are a bit tedious. The protagonists are "sweethearts" but Taryn has a lot self-esteem issues even though she seems to be perfect and Ryan the quintessential "HOT" actor of the moment is a little too controlling for my taste. Their egos are very fragile;  the more I read the more I grew tired of all the going back and forth between the main characters especially the fickleness of Taryn's emotions. The climax of the story and the details leading up to it were foreseen however I was expecting something much more.  By that time I just didn't care about the story anymore even though some chapters before I started to feel for the couple after going through what they went through.  I thought that maybe that would be the turning point in the book. Another reason I took another star is that there are things that are contradictory and I had to go back and forth to make sure I was reading correctly(One of my pet peeves when reading!).There are a couple of redeeming things in this book, one is the relationships the main characters have with their families and friends and two, that the author wrote some very sensual sex scenes between the protagonists but she didn't focus every other chapter with their lovemaking in graphic detail like other books I have read recently and I liked that. This is an adult book, there is mention of sex, drinking, and abuse of prescribed medication. 

Rating 2.5 out of 5 Stars
