I’ve watched him for years. Every role. Every episode. He was every woman’s fantasy. The famous actor. Gorgeous. Charming. Perfection. Unattainable. Until he showed up at my front door. Wanting something from me. Something I wasn’t sure I could ever give. It wasn’t safe outside my bubble. So, I let him inside instead. All the way in. And once he was there, I wanted to keep him. Even if that meant risking everything. My safety. My anonymity. Even my heart. He thought he knew how the story would play out. But I was taking our love off script.
Off Script sounds fun. The blurb is cute and it made me curious. I had no idea what I was in for!!!!!
I love snark. I love sarcasm. I love heroines who won't back down and have a backbone. I love loud personalities without necessarily being "loud". I love Kaiti. Kaiti is without a doubt one of my favorite female characters ever. She is strong minded, opinionated, and has no filter. She is a tough cookie with a lot of spunk. (coughs...my bad. It wasn't intended as a 13 yr old locker room snicker inducing comment but after reading Off Script- it's hard to turn off!)
Feisty, snarky, sarcastic comments make this book highly entertaining and will keep you reading. One of the best Yo Momma situations ever- happens in these pages. It's not all juvenile tomfoolery....(see I tried to make it sound more serious) No, Off Script has some very serious situations. But the grace and drive shown in these pages is uplifting while the humor had me snorting and smiling the entire time!
I would quote half a dozen lines off the top of my head but we both know I won't spoil it for you. But please, please, please highlight and send them to me because I loved reading it. I would love knowing what sent you into a fit of giggles or shooting shots out your nose. BTW, excessive drinking can lead to questionable wake ups with virtual strangers in bed humping your leg. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
For those of you who took that as encouragement, please know that hot movie stars....sorry, TV stars won't just fall in your bed. I tried. No luck. So now that you've read all this and you question what to do...
Step One- click the button that has the name of your favorite book provider. (I can them my dealers...I am an addict. I even belong to the One Click Addict group on Facebook. The struggle is real.)
Step Two- snicker at the blurb
Step Three- drool over the cover
Step Four- One click, add to cart, or whatever you need to do to ensure delivery
Step Five- gather your ice cream, alcohol, or other snacks
Step Six- lean back and enjoy the adventure that is Off Script
It won't disappoint. I promise snickering, smiling, and plenty of butt pinching.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and now I’m going to back and read the ones I’ve missed.
The story is about Kaiti and Gavin I’ve got to say Kaiti is hilarious her with one-liners and had me giggling out lots more than once. Gavin is the movie star who despite his success is a super sweet guy.
Kaiti is spotted in the mall as a potential new character on a tv show but for her notoriety would be her worst nightmare. Gavin is sent to try and sweet talk her into joining, when he meets her he is fascinated. I really enjoyed the banter between the two main characters I particularly liked the way Gavin was so protective and encouraging towards Kaiti.
This is Hollywood baby so of course there is rivalry, jealousy and backstabbing co stars. I really enjoyed the story it made me laugh cry and smile lots.

“Longest. Day. Ever,” I murmured as I searched for a vending machine on my way out the door. Gavin was only a few steps behind me and his responding chuckle caused me to flip him off over my shoulder.
“I warned you, new girl.” His tone was mocking. The crew hadn’t been quick to remember my name so half of them had referred to me as ‘new girl’ all day, saying it like they genuinely thought it was my name.
“Bite me, Hollywood.”
“No more Mister?”
I shook my head, making a beeline for the bank of vending machines by the elevators. “Nope. I’ve lost all respect for you today, so you’re just plain Hollywood now.”
“Your words have the power to wound, and you’ve cut me deep.” He was pouring on the sarcasm.
“Not my fault you flubbed your lines almost as much as me. So professional of you.”
I stopped at one of the machines and started plunking in quarters, not caring what it spat out as long as it was cold and loaded with caffeine.
Gavin moved to lean against the humming machine, tilting his body at an angle and smiling that damn radiant smile of his. “We all have off days; today was one of mine.”
I ignored him until half of my ice-cold beverage was consumed, then gave him my attention, squinting. “So, you’re trying to tell me it usually goes a lot smoother than that for you?”
“I rarely mess up. Sure, we all have those awkward moments where something in the script sounds dirtier than it’s meant to or a squeaky leather couch makes an unsavory noise and we all break character to laugh, but that’s about it.”
“Why today, then?” I felt my whole face flush as an idea hit me. “Oh shit, was I so bad it distracted you and made you mess up?” Dear Lord, kill me now.
“Of course not. You were great.” He stepped over and threw an arm around my shoulders, turning us toward the elevators. “I told you. It was just one of those days—no one’s fault but my own.”
He walked me to my car and held the door open as I folded myself into the seat with an exhausted groan.
“See you in the morning, Kaiti girl,” he said, mixing my actual name with part of my new nickname in a way that I really liked. Or maybe it was the way it sounded coming from him.
“Good night, Gavin. Thanks for making today as stress-free as possible. I don’t even want to think about how it would have gone without you looking out for me.”
“That’s what friends are for.” He closed the door with a soft click and turned to leave as I hurried to roll down the window.
“Yeah?” He spun back to face me.
“Do friends also mess up their lines on purpose so their nervous, less-talented friend doesn’t feel like a dolt in front of everyone?”
He gave me a crooked smile. “Are you saying you messed up on purpose? For me?” He pointed to his chest. “Well, that was awfully sweet of you, Kaiti. Thanks for looking out.”
He walked away before I could respond.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Anna Paige is the author of the Broken series; Broken Ground, Flawlessly Broken, and All the Broken Pieces, as well as Chasing Kade, the first installment in the Thrill of the Chase series and Off Script — a brand new standalone, due out in December 2017.
She lives in a rural town in North Carolina where the only activity is the rhythmic color change of the solitary stoplight and a very real threat of being carried away by mosquitoes. The only alternative to terminal boredom is writing, making life interesting if only on the page.
Anna is happily married, with one amazing son and a pair of hilarious pets. When she’s not writing, she’s trying to make a dent in her TBR pile. Given that she’s constantly adding new titles to the list, the chances of her ever finishing are slim.
And she’s completely fine with that.
