ARC Review: OUR UNSCRIPTED STORY by L.A. Fiore


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 our happily-ever-after. Life isn't like fiction, and the greatest love stories don’t follow a script.

REVIEW


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m a true sucker for a second chance romance and Our Unscripted Story was one of the best that I’ve ever read. At first we’re introduced to young Alexis, whose life started out amidst hardship. Armed with her imagination and a family of friends, her life was going to be whatever she made it. An almost-meeting at her favorite place in town had her setting her eyes on Greyson and it was love at first sight for both of them. This simple encounter laid the foundation for an epic love story that spanned decades.

I loved everything about these characters. They had so much depth to them that they felt like people I would have in my real life. This author always finds a way to give her books a sense of sincerity that speaks to me each and every time. Alexis, even when she was young, had a level of maturity that belied her age. She was humble, talented, ambitious, understanding, compassionate, and extremely loving. For someone who didn’t experience a lot of love in the beginning, her capacity to love was outstanding. Greyson was also a sweetheart. His love and devotion to Alexis was something to be envied. Every time he spoke, I heard his Irish lilt. And he really was magical. He was sensitive, funny, and extremely kind-hearted.

Don’t even get me started on the side characters. From Greyson’s grandfather, to the twins (Dylan and Dominic), to the beautiful family that Paige and Grant created, Fiore did an excellent job of bringing these people to life. I adored them all and they each played almost as much of an integral role in this story as the main characters did. The author didn’t waste one moment of this book on frivolity or filler. Each segment gave me a genuine sense of rightness with this story and I couldn’t get enough. Whether I was basking in the pleasure of first love/last love or dwelling in the anguish built up from the bits of angst introduced, I read this book in a state of wonder.

I’ll say it again, Liz is one of my favorite authors of all time because everything she writes is gold. I cannot recommend her books enough to people. Her stories are honest, emotional journeys that need to be taken by everyone. Our Unscripted Story is a complex, heartfelt, touching, and sensual work of art that teaches the reader about love, life, forgiveness, family, and the beauty of second chances.
