REVIEW – OUR UNSCRIPTED STORY by L.A. Fiore

SYNOPSIS

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.

He stood and reached for my hand. I didn’t know what it was about that moment, but it was one I knew I would remember always. The way he looked in the moonlight. His wide palm held out to me, the look of interest on his face that matched my own. I slipped my hand into his and knew with certainty that my life would never be the same.

 

 

 

I knew just after having read a few chapters of this book that this was going to be an epic love story. It was literally ”unputdownable”!! The story flows so perfectly. I love it when my attention is grabbed from the very beginning and is never lost throughout. There were never any moments of boredom for me. This book had it all. An endearing Heroine, a terrific plot, scorching hot steam, and a seriously charismatic Hero who I couldn’t help but fall in love with from the moment he enters the story. Greyson Ratcliffe is one of those book boyfriends that will sweep you off your feet so wholly and effortlessly.

Alexis Owens was abandoned by her parents when she was only two-years-old. All she has is an old letter from her father telling her that she is loved. She has been loving with her foster parents for nearly fourteen years of her life and they were hardly what you would call ”loving” parental figures. They rarely paid much attention to her. She lived in their house as an invisible entity. Alexis turned to writing to ease her pain. She would create alternate realities through her stories and it helped her endure her dismal circumstances. While she wasn’t the most popular girl in school because to most she seemed a bit odd, she did have a few really close friends who became her surrogate family.

 

 

 

Her life is changed forever when she locks eyes with the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen on her favorite beach where she often goes to in order to be alone with her thoughts. She feels something pulling her to him and days after that one encounter, the boy has not left her thoughts in the least. She can’t believe her luck when he ends up being the new student at her high school and it gets even better when he walks into one of her classes.

For the first several chapters we get the story in Alexis’s POV and I was thinking that the entire book was only going to be in her narrative which I have to admit disappointed me because Greyson’s character was so intriguing from the very start that I was dying to know what was going on in his mind. I was ecstatic when the story then started to alternate between Greyson’s and Alexis’s POVs. To find out that he was feeling the same strong sense of connection to Alexis, had me floating on cloud nine.

Greyson has just moved from Ireland to the U.S. with his grandfather in order to pursue a very promising career as an artist. The plan is for Greyson to study with a world-renowned artist which will also include traveling around the globe to promote his art, right after his high school graduation. He never intended to fall in love so quickly with Alexis and now the thought of pursuing his dream and leaving her behind has left him with a heavy heart. While the two enjoy the short time they have together they both know that their love affair is nearing its end. Not only does Greyson have set plans for his future but Alexis also wants to pursue her dreams of becoming a famous writer. She has a full scholarship with NYU and her dream is to become a successful screenwriter for blockbuster Hollywood movies or a playwright for off-Broadway shows. While they would love nothing more than to stay together, they both know that the timing isn’t right for them but promise that in a few years they will reconnect and rekindle the love they shared.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Several years go by and Alexis has never forgotten about Greyson, nor has she moved on from him. He’s become a very famous and successful artist. His face is plastered on every magazine cover. If she even tried to avoid hearing about him, it would be nearly impossible. The two end up seeing each other again and it’s as if the years that were lost between them never existed. The spark is still very much alive and this time they vow that nothing will keep them apart. But there are threats looming over them that could potentially destroy their chance at happiness.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5++++
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
