I am so glad I came across these two books. Both books are in the series. They were just amazing! I have never read a novel, that went into so much details about a celebrity's life, his love with a normal person who didn't belong in his "celebrity" world. Their struggles, their passion, jealous, crazy fans and stalkers, ex girlfriends, everyone around them trying to keep them apart.
The author perfectly captured the constant uncertainty of being in a relationship with a hollywood celebrity, as well as the harsh realities that come with it : the paparazzi, stalkers, invasion of privacy, constant media scrutiny. Ryan and Taryn had to deal with their own personal life, but also their public image.
Ryan Christensen, the sweetest and hottest Hollywood movie star, I have ever read in a romance novel *swoon* *drool* *dreamy sigh* He was just so freaking HOT and PERFECT!! It melted my heart how in love he was with Taryn and how completely he was devoted to her. Despite all of the pressures of being in the public eye constantly, all of the gorgeous women throwing themselves at him, he always only had eyes for Taryn. Taryn was just as amazing. I have never read a book that was just so perfect, so emotional, and yet so fulfilling that I wanted to be a part of their happiness, their sorrow and their strength.
Love these two quotes below from the book:
"You're my everything, Taryn, not my secret. I just don't want to share what is most sacred to me with the entire world on a talk show. You're my world, babe. Mine. Not theirs. They can have me, but they can't have you, too."
I loved how both of them learned from their mistakes. They weren't perfect, but they both worked really hard at rationally dealing with everything. It was truly a joy to read.
This is how I imagine Ryan to be
Eagerly waiting for the third installment of this Love Unguarded!
