Summary

Perfect for fans of Jennifer E. Smith and Huntley Fitzpatrick, you'll love this funny and sweet contemporary romance about a Southern girl ready for a ho-hum summer until she meets the boy of her dreams who happens to be an international pop star.

Sometimes love stories go off script.

Another sultry Georgia summer is about to get a lot hotter. Dee Wilkie is still licking her wounds after getting rejected by the precollege fine arts program of her dreams. But if she'd gone away, she wouldn't have been around to say yes to an unbelievable opportunity: working on the set of a movie filming in her small Southern town that just happens to be starring Milo Ritter, the famous pop star Dee (along with the rest of the world) has had a crush on since eighth grade.

It's not like Dee will be sharing any screen time with Milo—she's just a lowly PA. And Milo is so disappointingly rude that Dee is eager to stay far away from him. Except after a few chance meetings, she begins to wonder if just maybe there's a reason for his offensive attitude, and if there's more to Milo than his good looks and above-it-all Hollywood pedigree. Can a relationship with a guy like Milo ever work out for a girl like Dee? Never say never. . .

My Review

MY UNSCRIPTED LIFE is an absolutely fun and sweet contemporary romance! Enjoyable from beginning to end with characters who are easy to connect with, route for, and love, and a story that is full of humor, some lessons learned, one charming pop-star-turned-actor, and a small-town girl who is trying to survive the summer. If you enjoy light contemporary YA, definitely grab this one!

I loved these characters! I love that they could have been cookie-cutter, but they turn out not to be. They have their own issues and struggles, but also strengths. I loved all the misconceptions, the awkward moments, the sweet ones, the romance... Really, I pretty much just loved this story. It had some depth while still staying light and happy.

In the end, was it what I wished for? It was so delightful to pick up a book that I heard was good and expect it to be a light and fun romance and get exactly that! It's not profound or completely realistic, but I loved reading just about every single word and it left me happily content.

Content: Some profanity and innuendo.
