Nobody is a bigger fan of actor Thomas Cassidy than Libby is. Nobody. That's why she's totally going to marry him.

She is going to write a novel, name the main character after Thom, and find a way to get it to him. Intrigued and flattered, he will read it, fall in love with her prose, write to her and ask to turn it into a movie. She will pretend to think about it for a week or so, then say, sure, but can I work on it with you? Their eyes will meet over the script, and fade to black. It is a fail-proof plan.

Except for the fact that he is a Hollywood star – not A list, perhaps not B list, but certainly C+ – and she is, well, not. Except for the fact that he lives in America. Except, too, for the teeny tiny age gap. Not even twenty years! Totally overcomable. All of the obstacles are totally overcomable. It's all about determination.

This was a great read. I enjoyed it very much. I love reading books that give the points of view of their characters so that I get a good idea of what everyone is going through. This book was just that. We got to read from the four main character's POV which was great because it felt like we got to know each one of them so well and were able to see from beginning to end how the characters matured. In the beginning Libby is a mess and all over the place, but by the end of the story you can see how much she's matured.

The actual story itself was entertaining and just a joy to read, giving you hope to follow your dreams because you never know where it might take you. 

The writing style of Claire Handscombe is unique and very well written. The way she writes gives you descriptive details of not only the characters themselves, but the settings in the story. As I read the book, I could picture where the characters were and imagine what the places looked like.  This was a quick read that had you flipping the page to see what was going to happen next. A warm and delightful story, Unscripted definitely reminded me of rom-com movie that you could watch with a group of friends.
