Greyson Ratcliffe. I met him at sixteen, the hot new guy sitting on my jetty, an aspiring artist just passing through. He was my first kiss and my first love. I wanted forever with him. I didn’t even get a year.

Five years later, I’m a budding writer who scripts stories of love and struggle, the good and the bad and the ups and the downs. He’s a star on the rise; his wicked

He stood and reached for my hand. I didn’t know what it was about that moment, but it was one I knew I would remember always. The way he looked in the moonlight. His wide palm held out to me, the look of interest on his face that matched my own. I slipped my hand into his and knew with certainty that my life would never be the same.

I knew just after having read a few chapters of this book that this was going to be an epic love story. It was

I’m a true sucker for a second chance romance and Our Unscripted Story was one of the best that I’ve ever read. At first we’re introduced to young Alexis, whose life started out amidst hardship. Armed with her imagination and a family of friends, her life was going to be whatever she made it. An almost-meeting at her favorite place in town had her setting her eyes on Greyson and it was love at first sight for both of them. This simple encounter laid the foundation for an epic love story that spa ...more

Title: Our Unscripted Story
Author: L.A. Fiore
Genre: Romance

It takes a special kind of author to weave a spell on its readers to captive them from the very first sentence to the very last. I knew I was going to like this book after the first chapter... Colour me wrong.. I loved this book. I can't recommend it enough!

So, a couple weeks ago, I received a message on FB from Kiki, asking me if I would like an ARC of this book.

I missed it... and it went a few days before I got around to replying (this is an 'Amo' thing...)

Anyway, I messaged back and said I'd love to take a dip!

Well.... that dip ended up in me swimming across the f*cking Pacific Ocean and back again because guess what? This book STOLE MY SOUL.

From the very first word to the very last, and all of the beautiful words in-between - it OWNED me.

L.A.Fiore presents Emotional sketches and Diaries full of Sentiments in Our Unscripted Story. There's no other way to describe it. Her deft hands type the words that just fastened to my heart. Can't believe I hadn't read her before or my "Friends"😡 didn't force me to read her before. I've had the fortune of meeting Ms. Fiore a couple of times and she's been very generous and gracious to us and hence my need to kick myself repeatedly, is pretty strong. I'm gonna make up for it for sure, LA!!!

DNF @30%. I heard from a good source that the overall pace of this story is consistent throughout the book, which makes it a great 5 star read for most readers, but unfortunately it put lonely ol me to sleep without the hope that anything in this book picks up. I was also told by said source that I’m getting pickier and crankier in my old age... so there’s that...

Let me warn you to be prepared to have your heart thrown in a blender of emotions not knowing if it will survive. This was an emotionally packed story of love, forgiveness, a second chance at life and living.

Now that Prologue had me in tears and I knew my heart would be put through the ringer and L.A. Fiore, my heart was not the same afterwards!!!

Alexis always asked herself Why? All she wanted was to be loved but unfortunately she would not get that from "The Monsters". She found her love and

Full Review

WOW! An epic first love that from the beginning felt completely right. Timing wasn't on their side but what was in their heart could outlast any obstacle put in front of them. I adored Alexis. Her strength, resilience, loyalty and heart. She never wavered, ever. She had her life completely upended and still found the good in situations. Her imagination kept her company and family

L.A. Fiore is ALWAYS an automatic read for me. Our Unscripted Story had my attention from page one. It gutted me right off the bat. A lingering want haunted me as the story unfolded. I found myself rooting for a character I knew nothing about.

Throughout the storyline, we get the honor of watching Alexis grow up. Life threw punch after punch at her right out of the gate. It's in a simple blessing that she found her roots and it wasn't in foster monsters, but her neighbors. Alexis paved her own wa

I think my heart was bleeding while reading this book. Gut wrenching, heart warming, just phenomenal!!

This story will have you at the prologue and you won't want to stop. I had to put it down a few times to meditate on what I just read and get my heart ready for more.

An amazing love story with heartache, joy, suspense and so many other emotions all wrapped up in a perfect package!

What an incredible story!!! No matter the circumstances, love is love. You can't fight it or hide from it. I loved everything about this book! My heart was utterly wrecked more than once while reading. But the beauty outweighed all of it. Things happen in life that we cannot control. But with family and friends by your side it will be ok. LA Fiore delivered such an emotionally moving story line . There was love and lust. But also heartbreak and sorrow. Alexis has to be my one of my favorite char ...more

“I need you to come back to me, beautiful.”

It seems like every single time this woman releases a book it ends up on my TOP FAVORITE LIST for the year, and her latest, Our Unscripted Story, is no different! This romance was absolutely MAGICAL! I loved it to the moon and back! It was a constant pull on my heartstrings and an even bigger pull on my emotions. I adored these incredible characters and their epic journey was, in one word, PERFECTION!

This was SO MUCH MORE than your typical love

Congratulations Ms. Fiore … that was

I just finished reading “Our Unscripted Story” and I find myself writing one of my “Dear Author” reviews simply because it is hard not to address you personally with what I have to say.
Congratulations – simply because you just “ran over” Ms. Hoover on the pole position of the ugly cry reads. She was holding that No 1 position since she made me cry in reading under 10% of Confess…. YOU … on the other hand only needed 5% - so yeah there is that.

This past year has been very stressful for me and because of that, I hardly read. But when L.A. Fiore sends me an early copy, I drop everything and just read it. Her words are like medicine and they always come right when I need them.
As always, this book left me breathless. I had to gather my thoughts in order to write this review.
Our Unscripted Story is about two beautiful artistic young souls - Alexis and Greyson - who meet at the age of 16 and 18. They are drawn to one another and fall in l

This book grabbed hold of my heart from the first words and did all kinds of crazy things to it as this epic love story unfolded. My heart ended up being pulled in so many directions it was crazy, it got all kinds swoony and twitterpated, it hurt so much it broke and at one point it wanted to grab a 2x4 and smack some sense into people. With this plethora of feels going on, it also had the effect of making me all kinds of teary ~ and it didn’t matter if it was

I just finished Our Unscripted Story this morning, sitting at my desk in my classroom, praying that my eyes no longer look red and puffy when my students enter the room. I truly cannot express how much I adored Alexis and Greyson’s love story; it’s emotional…it’s passionate…it’s as heartwarming as it is heartbreaking…it’s a first love, last love book that illustrates just how powerful a connection can be formed with just one look…one word…one embrace.

Being the second book by L.A. that I have read, I can honest to goodness say that, she has a forever fan. I have never read a book that flows so well, Yes this book spans a couple of decades and there are three parts, but going from one part to another did not leave me feeling as if it just stopped and she picked up and threw words together to get the book finished. It was very well plotted, and there was a consistency to the words of the story that make it feel not rushed, but a steady flow. I ...more

I've been a fan of LA Fiore for awhile now, and this book is her very best work. From the backstory of the prologue through the decades that come, this book grabs your feelings and doesn't let go.

This book cherishes all the best parts of love, forgiveness, fidelity, sacrifice and even frustration. This book is INTENSE in so many ways. I found myself wanting to chuck my kindle across the room, and I rarely find myself so engaged in a book to care that much.

Be still my beating heart, my soppy emotional broken sad romantic loved up happy happy heart

Have you like me been waiting on a story about a man who loves a woman, one woman THE woman if yes then you will love Greyson.

LA Fiore never disappoints with her characters and story they always bring out intense emotions in me and I always fall in love with at least one of them.

This is not a story where they meet fall in love & live happily it’s a story spanning years in the lives of Greyson and Alexis
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore is the story of Greyson and Alexis.
This stars with watching Alexis go through her life from an early time jumping through different parts of her life. We see her meeting Greyson when he was the new kid in town. Go forward to her making of her life. We then see Greyson and Alexis meeting up again in a different point in their lives. Alexis had been giving a hard life even though it started with love but sadly it took a bad turn. Greyson was a great main charact

"Life isn't like fiction, and the greatest love stories don’t follow a script." L.A. Fiore not only has an incredible gift of story telling but she also paints the story in such clear vivid images that you feel as though you are living in the moment with her characters. Alexis and Greyson have a chance encounter on Alexis' jetty. The moment is captured and thought to be fleeting. They then meet again in school and the slow dance on how their beautiful relationship comes to be is incredible to wa ...more

Our Unscripted Story takes you on a journey spanning many years. Right from the prologue, Fiore’s words reach through your chest and give your heart a good squeeze. With each passing chapter, you get to know the characters more, and grow more attached as time goes by.

From the moment they met, there was something that drew Greyson and Alexis together. Even when faced with years of separation, they had a connection that could not be broken. Quite simply put, they were meant to be. Through the year

This book spanned decades, but the author made it flow perfectly. She was able to grip me right from the start and I walked away with a bigger heart and so full of emotions that I didn’t know weather I would cry tears of happiness, or be devastated that it was over.

One thing I love about this author is the fact that she writes her books like she was there. Like she loved though what happened and is just giving us her life experiences, and this book was no different.

Our Unscripted Story is another beautifully heart wrenching novel from the amazing L.A Fiore, she knows how to keep the pages turning, taking us on a beautiful journey and leaving me wanting to visit so many places just by the words she writes.
Alexis young life was changed at the flick of a switch, she was taken from everything she knew and given to the Monsters but as many of us say its not blood that makes a family it those we surround ourselves with and as Alexis was surrounded by people who

Beautifully written, beautifully presented.

This needs to be read along with a large bottle of wine, a huge bar of chocolate and a box of tissues.

The prologue was heart breakingly beautiful. I loved that this book, Alexis and Greyson's story is in three parts and whilst I took my time in the beginning, rationing myself to bath time reading only! But after about 60% in I NEEDED to finish their story.

Goodness!! you ripped out my heart and through all of their ups and downs pieced it back to togeth

Wow what a beautifully written, heartbreaking and emotional story this is!!!

Just be aware that this book will suck you in and almost break you by the end of it, but it's such a beautiful sweet pain that the trip and emotional high is so very worth it.

LA Fiore has created a story that is about love, loss and friendship, it touches on some very adverse situations that can and do happen in real life. Her characters are put through so much pain and misery that I was a sobbing mess for a lot of this

An epic romance that sucks you in and doesn't let go.

LA Fiore takes you on an incredibly journey with Alexis and Greyson. From the very first pages of this book I was hooked. Watching this love unfold right before my very eyes and I couldn't put this down.

From their first glance at each other I could feel the connection with these two. It's something almost magical. Not once throughout this story did I
