There are some books that though they're predictable drag you wholeheartedly into their world. Unscripted is just such a read as the events were ones I've encountered numerous times in my romantic reads but still found endearing and engrossing. From its likable main couple to its steamy interludes I enjoyed this Cinderella journey to HEA between two very different people reunited through pain caused by their past relationships. Holliday is still recovering from a horrific event in her past which would've destroyed most women. She's no shrinking violet as each day makes her stronger. Despite her past she's a strong-willed and kind hearted young woman who still dreams of being swept off her feet. When she least expects it her dream comes true upon coming face to face with sexy Irish actor, Ronan Connolly. The sparks immediately fly between these two and though she's a bit leery at first of the intensity she can't help but jump wholeheartedly into the scorching and dream-like relationship he offers her. Holliday brings a breath of fresh air to his crazy life full of sycophants and he appreciates her honest and trustworthy nature. Ronan is every woman's dream man as he's sexy, a doting father, and has a drool-worthy Irish accent. He freely admits he doesn't do relationships though as he's been left bruised by his cheating ex and thus is surprised by how quickly and intensely he falls for Holliday as most women inspire untrust in him. He senses her pain though and wants to make everything right for her which leads to some surprising twists and turns as his protective nature comes to the forefront. He's immensely supportive of Holliday but there were a few times when he's a bit too overbearing. His intensity is one of the things I enjoyed about him though and in his world he's used to getting what he wants so those instances are easily forgiven. His relationship with his daughters is sweet and brings out his soft side, reiterating his protective and caring nature. When it comes to the steamy side of Holliday and Ronan's relationship the encounters are scorching yet immensely romantic as his sexy accent says every poetic thing a girl wants to hear. The scenes are numerous yet nicely balanced with the rest of the story allowing their relationship to progress past their insta-love. From the crackling and scorching connection between Holliday and Ronin to the surprisingly quiet and caring interludes they also share theirs is a relationship that's the fantasy of many women. It also shows one woman's ability to overcome tragedy to come out of it stronger which is an inspiration to many. Along with this emotional storytelling comes a bit of mystery and suspense which provides unexpected twists to a story that already has your heart wrenching. Though this story has a definitive ending there's still a bit of story left to tell for these two lovers. In the next installment I hope there's a bit more interaction with Ronan's twins as well as more compelling secondary characters as that felt to be missing here. This story is ALL about Holliday and Ronan and their all-consuming relationship and though it's engaging I look forward to seeing where it goes as the flush of new love can sometimes burn out. This was my first book by Ms. Pastore but definitely won't be my last!

The blurb is what initially interested me in reading this book.  Once I started reading, I couldn't stop.  I wanted to know what had Holliday so spooked and Ronan's secrets.  The story was fascinating and so good! I really liked Holliday and Ronan.  Actually when it comes to Holliday, like is a weak word.  I admire her.  She's so strong and has overcome so much, even though sometimes she may seem weak.  I admired Ronan for sticking by his women, in as much as he could. There was a moment, when my admiration wavered, but it was temporary. Parts of this story were dark, but I'm hoping Holliday and Ronan can find a way to turn that painful time into a happy one.  I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel because there are certain people who I'd like to see get their comeuppance.  There were some really sad moments, some really hot moments, some very funny moments, and some really sweet moments.  This book isn't just a romance, there's mystery and suspense.  My first book by Christy Pastore has really impressed me.  While the story doesn't end on a cliffhanger, I'm still really eager to read the next book and find out what happens!
