About the Book
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.
In My Opinion
For anyone interested in what happens behind the movie camera or someone just wanting to read a well-written story, Davis Bunn’s Unscripted may be just what you’re looking for.
I enjoyed the way the film Danny and his crew are working on comes together. Everything seems to fall into place (even when at first people doubt the outcome) to give Danny the second chance and self-worth he needs.
At a couple of points, I felt like large pieces of the story were glossed over or skipped altogether. Yet, because the plot of this story is mostly about Danny and Megan, with the movie as a supporting character, I was okay with it for the most part. I would have also liked some more development around Megan and more to the relationship growing between her and Danny.
That said, Bunn is a such a fantastic author, even those minor negatives I found in the book (which might not even bother other readers), simple hangout in the background like extras without speaking parts. They’re there and you may notice them, but they don’t necessarily bring anything more to the script.
