Faith “Freakin’” Sinclair probably shouldn’t have called her boss a perv. . .or grabbed his “privates.” But as creator of the hit dramedy Modern Women, she’d had enough of his sexist insults. Now she’s untouchable in the industry–not in a good way. The only way to redeem herself is to convince Alex, the wildly popular, wildly demanding former star of her show, to come back. But there’s one obstacle in her way–one very handsome, broad-shouldered obstacle. . .
Professor Mason Mitchell is head of the theater department where Alex is studying “real” acting. The only way he’ll let Faith anywhere near Alex is if she agrees to co-teach a class. It’s an offer she can’t refuse–and as it turns out, the professor just might end up teaching Faith that there’s more to life than work–and that real-life love scenes are way more fun than fake ones.
**** The Review ****
“You can’t judge a book by its cover” has to be one of the dumbest things ever said. How else are you going to judge a book? By looking at the cover of Unscripted by Jayne Denker a reader would expect a fun and sassy read, and that’s exactly what they get!
Faith Freakin’ Sinclair is the woman I want to be. She’s confident, smart, and generous. She’s also in a heap of trouble with her boss. The only way she can get her job back is to woo a former star back to the show she’s just been booted from. Alex (whom you find out is a male) is hiding at a small community college working on his “craft.” But more than ego stands in Faith’s way of getting Alex to return to Modern Women. There’s Jamie (Faith’s lovable step-brother), Kaylie (who has her own agenda where Alex is concerned), Mona (Faith’s mother and a Hollywood diva/legend in her own right), and the sexy professor (Mason Mitchell).
Unscripted is my favorite kind of story. A comedy of errors that never ends. Things go from bad to worse for Faith as she attempts to work her magic on the handsome Alex. From confiscated credit cards to a bout of food poisoning-cum-nasty stomach virus, Faith battles to get her life back. Oh, and have I mentioned the sexy professor?
Unscripted is a fabulous chick-lit novel with just enough romance and Hollywood to keep things interesting. Look out Bridget Jones, here comes Faith Freakin’ Sinclair!
Jayne Denker is the author of three contemporary romantic comedies, By Design, Unscripted, and Down on Love, and is hard at work on a fourth. She lives in a small town in western New York, USA, with her husband, son, and one very sweet senior-citizen basement kitteh who loves nothing more than going outside, where she sits on the front walk and wonders why she begged to go outside. When Jayne’s not hard at work on another novel (or, rather, when she should be hard at work on another novel), she can usually be found frittering away stupid amounts of time online.
