Publisher's Summary

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.
A relationship that doesn’t follow the script....
Despite her better judgment, Taryn soon finds herself falling hard for Ryan. But is their bond strong enough to survive the tabloid headlines, the relentless paparazzi, and the jealous fans who seem determined to tear them apart?

A WELL WRITTEN AND NARRATED LOVE STORY

It's a daunting thought when you are about to dedicate 22.5 hrs of your life to a book BUT this one is SO worth it.

Ryan and Taryn's building blossoming romance is so touching and it's also funny, sweet and crazy. It's filled with secondary characters that you will also come to love as the couple journey on the love train. There's not much hot and heavy but if you're a Happily Ever After kind of person then you should like this.

Worth a credit? If you like a chic lit romance then ABSOLUTELY - but beware - once you start it then it becomes a non-stop ride and I've just bought my tickets onboard book 2.

Not your typical book

There are a few things I want to clarify before beginning my review, since the choice of to be or not to buy usually comes down to these categories for 90% of the population.

1. This book is 22.5 hours long...so if you aren't into LONG books move on!
2. The sexual tension and chemistry were there...but if you are looking for an erotic detailed read move on!
3. It is not a YA book (I was relieved when I finally figured that one out!)
4. The narrator is very good, even fake yawning a word when the script said to
5. Even though this was a story about a mega movie star and a simple girl, I have to say the contrived drama was kept fairly minimal.

Okay, onto the review.

Small town bar owner Taryn gets the shock of her life one day when she opens up her pub door and sees a slew of girls chasing a guy...she instantly gets him inside and realizes it's Ryan Christianson the mega movie star filming locally. She feels the need to protect him and helps him calm down and so the story of the Taryn Ryan relationship begins.

Some parts dragged but for the most part I liked the book. I liked that it wasn't insta-love and we are soul mates and poof it's us against the world. This girl had doubts, this boy has issues, they had to work to get together, but no one was abused as a child or was horribly broken or a virgin, thank goodness. I did get a bit bored with how much the girl doubted everything, but new relationships are hard and I imagine dealing with the mega movie star who can get any girl he wants scenario could make one doubt herself.

There were real life scenarios and nothing too over the top dramatic until the end that is...but you kind of figured something like that was bound to happen. And I am thrilled to report that although this is book 1 of 3 the third book isn't about Taryn and Ryan and book one did not have a cliff hanger ending. I have already downloaded book 2.

I would say it's well worth the read/listen!

Absolutely Brilliant

Really good story, I liked the way it was written, and I was even happier when I realised it was part 1 of 2, with another book in the winds relating to it, which i am looking forward to reading. Just wish a good book didn't finish.
