There is no rehearsal for true love.

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.

red review
I’m a puddle of goo. 

Love Unrehearsed picks up days after Love Unscripted left off. Ryan and Taryn are now engaged and are off to attend the premiere of Ryan’s latest movie – Reparation. Still in the bliss of their engagement, it may have slipped off from Ryan’s thinking that he did his proposal publicly. Shits about to hit the fan.

Word got out about their engagement and it’s now in Ryan’s hand (or more in his team’s hand) if he’ll be confirming or just brushing off the topic. Will Ryan do as what his team says or follow his heart on how he’ll be going to deal with this?

More questions: Is Taryn really ready for a life with Ryan? A life that is always under the scrutiny of the public and the media? Will there be people who will attempt to ruin their relationship? What will they do to secure their relationship? Will they still have their happily ever after?

It doesn’t even matter that we are just normal people and this book has a Hollywood setting element in its story because the author described everything perfectly. Readers can easily to slip into their world. With me, being familiar with some of the things that happen in Hollywood – photocalls, press junkets, promo tours, premieres, awards ceremonies, after parties and many more, it was really exciting to read a book like this. While at it, I imagined my favorite Hollywood actors doing and experiencing the same things. I’m having feels again.

I’m also glad that the book offered lesser drama. It was just the right amount of drama for these characters to be involved because during the first book they already experienced numerous amount of cliched dramas. Another thing, some characters developed into more significant ones in this book and some just ended up pissing me off big time. Asshole and ungrateful people surfaced on this one.

Love Unrehearsed gives a complete experience with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the simplicity of being just a normal person. Despite the paparazzi and all the media chaos, I love how Ryan and Taryn can have the best of both worlds. I love them, okay? I definitely and obviously recommend this series of Tina Reber! It’s a very entertaining read.
