Love, Unscripted by Denise Hunter: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

The perfect boyfriend only exists on paper…doesn’t he?

Fresh off the heels of a bad breakup, Chloe Anderson poured her heart into penning the perfect boyfriend—and the result was an off-the-charts debut beach read that resonated with women worldwide. Now, Chloe’s scripted hero is headed for Hollywood, with her book destined to become a major motion picture.

When Chloe gets wind that silver screen bad boy Liam Hamilton has been cast as the ideal-in-every-way hero of her novel, she’s horrified by the film director’s choice. How could a player like Liam possibly do Chloe’s perfect hero justice? Unafraid to speak her mind, Chloe lets her executive producer know she’s one hundred percent opposed to the casting. And oops—the call is on speakerphone, where the annoyingly attractive Hollywood star hears Chloe’s unbridled outrage firsthand.

With Liam’s reputation already on the rocks, his agent concocts a PR plan to upgrade Liam’s image while putting the story—and the film—in the spotlight. The catch? During the movie’s filming in Chloe’s cute hometown of Stillwater, North Carolina, Chloe and Liam will fake a wholesome, committed relationship. Both stand to gain something from the arrangement. Liam’s fans will see him in a new light, while Chloe can boost her struggling social media following and further her writing career. What could possibly go wrong?

As author and actor navigate the waters of the PR relationship, they’re unpre­pared when their professional agreement turns into an actual friendship. And when serious sparks start to fly—well, that’s an unread chapter for both of them.

When I pick up a book by Denise Hunter, I know that I am in for a beautiful love story... and Love, Unscripted absolutely did not disappoint. 

Chloe and Liam did not exactly get off on the right foot. He is an actor with a bad-boy reputation, signed to play the lead in the movie being made from her novel... and she is NOT pleased with the selection and is quick to let her opinion be known. When they wind up in a PR relationship to help with his reputation for the better of the movie, she quickly learns that there is a lot more than the man in the tabloids. These two drew me in right away--- from their hilarious meeting (both in person and over the phone) to the amazing chemistry, I couldn't help but love them. Both of them are imperfect characters with histories that make them hesitant to fully trust and I loved watching them grow as the story went on. I loved the message that it's not about perfection, but about finding the right one for you... and that certainly came through in their story. It was beautifully written and heartfelt, keeping me thoroughly invested in these characters right to the very end. 

If you enjoy a good Hallmark-like romance, this is certainly one to check out.
