Unscripted: Book Review with Revell Reads

About the Book

Title: Unscripted

Author: Davis Bunn

Genre: Christian Suspense

Release Date: October 1, 2019

Young line producer Danny Byrd is well-known in Hollywood for being someone who gets things done on time and under budget. But when his reputation takes a beating after his partner–and former best friend–makes off with their investors’ money, Danny has but one chance to redeem himself and restore his ruined career.

LA lawyer Megan Pierce has sacrificed years of her life proving herself to her impossible bosses only to find herself disgusted at their snobbery and their specious business practices. When an opportunity to actually make a difference comes her way, she knows she has to grab it–even though she’s not entirely clear what “it” is.

Danny and Megan are each other’s best hope for redemption. What they never could have imagined was that they might also be each other’s best hope for love.

Bestselling and award-winning author Davis Bunn takes you into the beating heart of Hollywood with two characters determined to thrive in a cutthroat business.

Book Review:

Unscripted is a deep, behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood film creation and the backstabbing intrigue that goes along with it. Danny and Megan have seen the underbelly of the industry for too long, and they’re both ready to break free. But are they ready to put the past behind them?

For Danny, every decision about the future revolves around what happened in his past. Which is something that can often be a problem.

I wanted more from the characters in Unscripted. The book portrays deep levels of creation in the film industry, but unless you symbolize the characters into the film creation, it leaves the characters without much interaction.

The conclusion was good but felt contrived. I preferred the film conclusion to Danny and Megan’s conclusion. Their conversations always seemed to revolve around work, with only a few key conversations going deeper and being just strong enough to build a bond.

I don’t regret reading this book. It was an interesting read, just different. If you enjoy books with little romance that lean more toward a play-within-a-play action, you will enjoy this book.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads Blogger Program. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
