Love Unscripted by Tiffany Odekirk + $25 and Book Giveaway

Evie Jennings doesn't believe in happily ever after—it's been a year since moving home to Los Angeles to gather the pieces of her broken heart after her divorce, but she is only going through the motions. That is, until a chance encounter on her college campus brings about an unexpected turn of events: Evie finds herself face-to-face with the heartthrob whose poster decorated the wall of her teenage bedroom. And he's desperate for her help.

Hollywood sensation Ridge Dashly is facing a career crisis—a bad review threatens his A-list status. Desperate to win back the favor of the media and his fans, Ridge reluctantly agrees to enroll in college, never dreaming he'll meet someone who can see past his fame to his true self.

As their paths continue to cross, Evie's seeming disinterest intrigues Ridge, and the pair form a tentative friendship that slowly grows into something more. But when confronted with the unrelenting paparazzi and the nagging shadows of their pasts, will they follow everyone else's script or fight for their own happy ending?

When I picked this book up I was so excited because this is a nice thick book and I knew if the story was a good one, I was in for a treat.  And yay!  It was a good one- a journey of forgiveness, love and new beginnings.

Evie is a broken and hurt woman.  She's made some mistakes, she's been burned by love and now she is lost and aimlessly drifting along instead of really living.  She is trying to find her footing again.  Enter Ridge, who challenges Evie and helps her begin on the path to find herself and forgive herself.

Both of these characters are vulnerable which is what connected me to them.  It was their flaws that helped me relate, and their strengths that helped me admire them.  I felt so connected to their stories.  I loved the beginning meeting (in a bathroom!) and I loved the ending.  This was a very satisfying read.

Content:  This is an LDS specific book so there are many religious elements (talk of God, repenting, forgiving, praying), kissing, mention of a couple different forms of addiction (prescription meds, pornography) 

- I was given a complimentary copy of this book.  All opinions expressed are my own.
