I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. *dreamy sigh* Pure, heart-melting perfection!!!

“You’re my world, babe. Mine. Not theirs. They can have me, but they can’t have you, too…. I meant it when I said forever… You are it for me… The me that is standing in front of you right now is not the same me that’s out there in the spotlight… They only get the outside, not the inside. That’s for you.“

This book made my heart deeply happy and left me thoroughly contented and elated. A huge reason

This was a highly anticipated release for me, while I am glad Taryn and Ryan are madly in love and there is a lot of sex going on, I felt like this book lacked some meat. I was hoping to see Ryan's possessive side develop a little and cause a conflict between Taryn and Ryan, or possibly Taryn becoming a model and Ryan becoming jealous. The ending seemed a bit rushed, we waited two books to hear them say I do and it was over in 3 paragraphs, with no actual view of their vows:/ I really hope this ...more

This was a continuation of the story from Love Unscripted, and it does not disappoint!! In this story, Taryn and Ryan learn the depth of the love for one another. They are tested again and again but with different people and different problems. Ryan's career in the spotlight proves to be almost a deal breaker at times. And not just for her, but for hi

LOVED IT, absolutely loved it. 4.5 stars. Thanks TR, the wait was agonizing. After the angst ridden roller coaster of the first bk (Love Unscripted) I wasn't sure how Ryan/Taryn would fair this time. Well let me tell you, finally they're solid. Oh sure they have their minor ups and downs but there's no mistaking their love and commitment. I had an instance or two where I thought Taryn might be leaning towards another Love Unrehearsed meltdown, but she rallied quickly after giving herself a pep t ...more

Love Unrehearsed by Tina Reber was everything I could have wished for and more. It has been over a year since I read Love Unscripted the first time, and I have patiently awaited the next chapter in Ryan and Taryn’s life. It could not have been better in any way!

I have to say I am a little disappointed. I love Taryn and Ryan. The first book was full of romantic tension and obstacles that kept the tension going. In Love Unrehearsed, there were a few minor antagonistic elements but not enough to make it suspenseful. It seemed that all of the sparks flew in book one and book two was about the cementing of their relationship. At the end of Love Unrehearsed the last few chapters spanned several years. It felt rushed. Every other paragraph seemed to skip ahea ...more
Review of Love Unrehearsed by Tina Reber (and recap of Love Unscripted as well)

Love Unrehearsed is the long-awaited sequel to Tina Reber's awesome debut novel, Love Unscripted. It is the continuation of Taryn Mitchell and Ryan Christensen's love story...a story of doubts and acceptance, of misgivings and trust, of hopes shattered then pieced back together, of total devastation and extreme elation, of closures and new beginnings; and, ultimately, a story of finding blissful peace and life-long co

I eagerly awaited the release of Love Unrehearsed for what seemed like years but it was really months. I desperately needed a Ryan Christensen fix and I got it in a BIG way! If I swooned over him in the first book, I S.W.O.O.N.E.D. for him in this book.

Ryan is HOT! I mean, if he was a real person, I would be a total fangirl. The man is sex on a stick and has that whole controlling jealousy thing down without being too overbearing. Yes, there are times it seemed like he was taking this control t

As well as all the sexiness & love from before all the manipulators & Hollywood came crashing onto the scene trying to rewrite the script! Don't get me wrong the drama & evil ones are still on the set but my beuatiful duo are definitely taking control of the script! Kudos to Ms Reber!

I love Ryan a Taryn's story. This had the ending we were all hoping for, but honestly the getting there in this book was a bit too easy.

OMG, what an absolute freaking swoonfest! I can’t remember reading a book with so much swoon! Sensational!

Definitely a winner for those who fell in love with Ryan and Taryn (well, probably just Ryan if we're being honest) in Love Unscripted, this book is like one gloriously long epilogue. There isn’t really one major storyline, rather the book just follows Ryan and Taryn along a series of ups and downs as they build their life together while dealing with the highs and lows of the celebrity lifes
Sep 24, 2012 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This book was better than the previous book in that I didn't want to wring Taryn's neck, but I also thought that the author tried to do too much in a relatively short period of time.

We have the issue in Paris (which seemed out of left field), we have Taryn's ex, we have the issues with Marie, the fight between Marie and Tammy, the paparazzi/arrest at Ryan's parents house, the secret from Taryn's past that was in the safe deposit box, and issues with Ryan's publicist/agent/manager. It was a lot.

Update 9/17 - Ms. Reber - I am going to do something I rarely do. I have to eat humble pie about my words below. I just finished the book and it was awesome! The wait was well worth it. I laughed and cried...The chemistry between Ryan and Taryn was still there, and there were a few surprises that thru me off. All and all, the book was a great read. And the ending was perfect!

Ryan was just as wonderful as I remembered, the ideal guy... sigh. Taryn is great too. It's nice to have a strong female lead who is independent, down to earth and very supportive. Let's not forget Mike... I was pleasantly surprised with how much of Mike w

Let me start off by saying that I enjoyed the first book very much and I can't help but compare this book to the first in the series. I honestly felt a little disconnected from the first book as I was reading this book. There are items that are brought to light in this book, such as Taryn's nightmares and Ryan's anxiety, that have clearly been affecting them for some time, but they are never mentioned in the first book. Yes, the first book covers a time span of 8 months, but for these items to h ...more

I'm sad to say that Tina Reber played it too safe, predictable and boring with Love Unrehearsed.I kept waiting for the story to build momentum like Love Unscripted with some kind of fresh new story line or plot but unfortunately that never happened. It felt like one long epilogue. Half of the book is about how much Ryan and Taryn love each other and how it sucks to be chased by paparazzi all the time, and the other half is about Mike and Marie. So much was written about Mike and Marie, that I no ...more

The love story of Ryan and Taryn is great, really! Both books are full of sweet and sexy moments that warmed my heart.

Sitting in the street.

Book Review: Love Unrehearsed – Tina Reber - 5*

I waited a few hours before writing this review, simply because after I finished it, I had to take a deep breath to regulate my heartbeat and hug my kindle to my chest while a huge happy smile exploded across my face. It was also a little bittersweet, because I had come to the end of an incredible journey, with two of my favourite characters, the lovely Ryan and Taryn.

The most beautiful thing about this book was playing witness to the growth of each

There are literally no words to describe how much I love this 2-book series and how much Ryan, Taryn and all the other characters have completely captured my heart not once, but twice. I commend Tina Reber for writing this amazing book and giving me something I will never forget.

After finishing book 1, I thought there was no way I could ever love the second one more but OH MY GOD was I wrong. Ryan Christensen says the most steamiest, sweetest and total drool-worthy things and he will definitely

Update: 11/15/2012

I guess I must be the minority with this book because I did not like it at all. Book one was amazing but this was a major disappointment. It took me MONTHS to finish this... even then I forced myself to. I still say the book focused on the other characters more then the main characters to set up another book. My review below still stands. I'm really disappointed.. so it maybe just me but my rating will stick.

I don't really know what to say about this book. I liked it but I didn't Love it!..I just expected more.
The story was OK, but it just felt like nothing happened, there was no drama, nothing..everything was just too smooth sailing for me. I feel like I could have basically read the first book with a few extra chapters, add on the epilogue from this book and that would have been enough. I've read some amazing books over the past few weeks and they were unbelievably cheap for such great books, whe

It was nice to pick up the Ryan/Taryn story again, but I felt like the story was all over the place. There was so much drama, it became unbelievable. To be fair - I had very high expectations based on the first novel, so this book had the bar set very high at the outset. There was less plot and character development than the first Love installment. There were also a lot more steamy scenes this go around which I didn't care made the book appear longer than it really was. Instead, I wish ...more

Also when are we getting Marie and Mike's book? It's been 5 years since this one was released!!!???

**First review: Sometime in 2014 -_-

Nice way to end this series! So much drama and action and romance. It was a great read!!!
What I really wanted to see was Ryan and Taryn going to Tahiti like they planned in the last book. I don't recall that happening but then again these books were super long I don't remember!
