Back of the Book

An A-List Movie Star… 

Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine a life where fans would chase him, paparazzi would stalk him, and Hollywood studios would want to own him. While filming in Seaport, Rhode Island, Ryan ducks into a neighborhood bar for a quick escape from legions of screaming fans…and finds much more than he expected. 

A Small Town Girl… 

Nursing a recent heartbreak, Taryn Mitchell believes men are best kept at a safe distance. But when Ryan Christensen unexpectedly bursts through the front door of her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in by his humor, charm, and undeniable good looks. At six foot two, with dirty blond hair, blue eyes, and an incredible body, Ryan has every girl in Seaport swooning. But Taryn isn’t every other girl.


Love Unscripted by Tina Reber is a contemporary romance set in modern day Rhode Island.

It is a sensual, funny, heartfelt and captivating story. In reading the book's description, you are aware that there will be an improbable romance between heroine Taryn Mitchell, our untrusting yet passionate Bar Owner, and hero Ryan Christiansen, the devilishly handsome, talented Actor, who is thankfully, much more than just a pretty face. 

The story is told from Taryn's perspective. As it is a long book, readers became very familiar with Taryn’s painful history of dating, her deep fear of rejection, and her hesitant yet developing desire to become a part of Ryan's life, despite the incredible forces against them.

Both Taryn and Ryan have extremely good reasons to be wary of entering a relationship with each other. The story is a slow dance between two vulnerable people with deep insecurities, both however, with a desire for forevermore. 

This comment, "We are drawn to each other with a deep magnetism that reached all the way to the core of my being," reflects their longing for connection.

Tina Reber wove an intelligently developed romance that holds up well against the fairy-tale impulses attempted by lessor authors. Love Unscripted has beautiful pacing, strong, intelligent characters, believable plots, terrific humor and sultry romance.

Some authors feel the necessity to have their characters jettison their sizzling attraction of lust into sex within the first chapter or two of their books. At times, we mere readers thoroughly enjoy that!!!

However, It is refreshing to read a story where time is taken before the first bedroom scene. (Not to say that there aren't a few sizzling scenes prior to get readers’ heart rate soaring!) Then once the bedroom scene arrives...well, sensational!

I loved it. It's simply one of the best romances I've read in some time. It will capture and hold your attention to the very end. The length is exactly right for the story, and it is a pleasure to spend that amount of time with each character, despite the angst this causes.

You will fall in love with the generous and loving Ryan, empathize with the selfless and thoughtful Taryn; laugh and cry, and become engrossed in what seems at times as 'Mission Impossible'.
