Review: I am obviously going to be the odd one out in my opinion on this book seeing how it got so many incredible five star ratings on goodreads, one of the main reasons why I picked it up also I had to know what all the hype about this book was and well...I didn't see what the hype was about. I sadly did not see what others saw in Love Unscripted and really just did not like the book at all.
The book is close to 600 pages it was actually more but I guess it got edited down since I'm reviewing the version I got from netgalley. Anyways it's like the climax didn't even happen until about the eighty percent mark until that point not much was happening. Now I did like the book and was interested in the characters until Taryn and Ryan hooked up. Once they got together the book went downhill for me, it was the same thing over and over, Taryn wondering why Ryan is with her since he is so famous and can have anyone he wants, and then the crazed fans stalking them. It was all just so repetitive, they could have easily taken another 200 or so pages out of the book.
Not to mention the two main characters just felt so unrealistic to me, their conversations bugged me it was so cheesy and corny, and I didn't feel the chemistry between the two. I guess if the writing was better, with believable dialogue, and characters who didn't annoy me so much I might have given this book a better rating. Overall I just had a bad experience with Love Unscripted and it bugs me even more because obviously I didn't see what so many people loved about this book. Anyways just because I didn't like it I'm not going to sit here and tell you not to pick it up because I'm the minority when it comes to this book and my feelings for it, more then likely you will enjoy it.
