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 talent and crazy good looks have his face plastered on countless magazines. We move in two different worlds and still our paths cross again. We’re older and wiser and as crazy about each other as we had been as teenagers.
My medium is words and my imagination is limitless, but not even I could have written the incredible journey we traveled to reach our happily-ever-after. Life isn’t like fiction, and the greatest love stories don’t follow a script.
Our Unscripted Story gives us a peek into the lives of Alexis and Greyson. Neither have had easy lives, but there's a connection between them that you can FEEL the moment that they meet. I couldn't wait to see how their story would play out. Their story is full of love, yes, but it isn't always easy. The struggles this couple faced, some big, some small, made these characters live and breathe for me.
I love Alexis. Absolutely love her. I hated some things that happened to her, but the result of those things turned her into the smart, strong young woman I adored. She was funny, loyal, honest and real. She's the kind of person you want in your corner, and someone I would absolutely be friends with.
Greyson? Well, hello one of my new favorite book boyfriends. He had me sighing, he had me swooning. He had me shaking my head in frustration. But he was perfectly imperfect. And he was just what Alexis needed. I fell for him when Alexis did, and my love for him just grew as I read...even when I wanted to shake him.
I won't spoil this book-because I want you to go and experience this amazing story. But I'll say the plot was unique. The writing was strong and I really felt what was going on with these characters. I adored the secondary characters; I can't pick a favorite because I loved them all. They added to the richness of this story.
Our Unscripted Story is the kind of book that will stick with me. I laughed, I cried and I swooned. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to see what this author brings us next. I highly recommend this book.
Don't get me wrong. Yes, there is angst. Greyson and Alexis meet when he is a year from starting his dream of becoming an artist and she is a couple of years away from college. They are together in high school and then life happens, as life does, at the end of high school. Both are given the chance to grow into the relationship that was developing when they were too young to know what to do with it, or how to make it work. And, in a lot of ways, the growth into loving Alexis is Grayson's real story. He struggles with how to treat her, how to live with her, and how to love her in a way that does not feel selfish. The journey of the book is the struggle for them to find, and keep, the connection that draws them together instantly, with just one look.
This book is about:
Misguided thinking on what has to be done to protect the people you love.
And, most of all...
It's about all of the ways the people who love us can disappoint us, but still be the people who love us most in the world.
I recommend this title.
