Unscripted by Natalie Aaron and Marla Schwartz was simply a wonderful, fun, humorous, romantic, engaging, and consuming read. Okay, so one of my secret (or not so secret now, I guess) guilty little pleasures is reality television. Yes, I am addicted to The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and even Jersey Shore. * Hangs head in shame* It's kind of embarrassing actually, but there you have it. So, to find a book that is all about the behind the scenes fun, mayhem and theatrics from the point of view of Abby, a reality show producer, was something I couldn't pass up.
What made the story even more fun was realizing the authors are actually producers of reality TV! No wonder everything was so realistic, and hilariously detailed. Like the title says, I couldn't put this book down. The "reality" of reality TV is more fun than the shows themselves! And Unscripted isn't just about Abby's job, there are fantastic side stories and characters that are so fun and vivid you'll feel like they're your friends, too.
While not necessarily a standard romance (which is really refreshing), there is a romantic element to Unscripted - and just like on TV, I want more. I don't even know if a sequel would be possible, or if one is already in the works, but can you hear me? I want more! Not that Unscripted leaves you hanging, but the world while you're in it is just so captivating... it's hard to let go when you finish that last page.
I'm sure from reading the bios at the end of the book that the authors have a million more stories to tell, now I just have to be patient and wait for them to finish spinning the tales ;-). Currently on sale for $4.61 on Amazon, Unscripted by Natalie Aaron and Marla Schwartz is a must read!
