My lovely reader. After I celebrate the release day of Aimee Nicole Walker’s Unscripted Love, it’s now time for my review. Check this post out. 😉
This book is loosely connected to the Curl Up and Dye Mystery series which is about Josh and Gabriel. 🙂 But don’t worry, you can read it without knowing the series. At least I haven’t missed too many parts but I will read the series too, and I recommend to do so, too. :3
My release blitz entry can be read here. It has an excerpt, different than the one from this post. 😉 Also it has other teaser picture. 😉
Be sure that you don’t miss the giveaway at the end of this post. :3 Your chance to win a cool price.
Also check out the social media channels by the author and have a look at the other blog participants. 🙂

This is my first book by Aimee Nicole Walker and although I haven’t read the connected series, Curl Up and Dye Mystery, before and didn’t know parts of the appearing character I could follow the story very well.
Some parts still confused me a bit, at the end especially information are revealed in the epilogue it should be better that you read the series. Still this didn’t dulled my joy over the book and Chaz’ and Kyle’s story.
Both character are really pleasant and have different personalities. Where Chaz is working at the counter at his best friend’s barbershop/styling boutique he is working at his career as an upcoming author. And there lies the problem: Chaz is creating a boyfriend based on his crush Kyle, the local veterinarian with sexy dimples. 😉
At first I have to say it was a bit hard to really connect with the character although the story is pretty well told and the character lovable. But a few things felt a bit unnecessary streched and too long. Also had I sometimes a few problems with the character’s behaviour, although they were so charming I could ignore the flaws.
The chemistry is right there but it’s a lot of work on both sides the two adorable men are really get together – and are honest to each other. I am not sure if Aimee Nicole Walker wanted to include too many things but maybe some events could have been in another book or novella about the guys.
But despite minor bumps the story was sweet, adorable and the character so cute. Kyle with his appearance, he worked so hard for, his really lovable personality and his open, wide heart captured me instantly but also Chaz bewitched me with his charm and his loose mouth. xD The two have really sweet flaws, adorable nerdy hobbies/interests and it’s totally amusing following their banter and their teasing.
Because I sometimes felt a bit lost, lost in the many information and the epilogue which is maybe more understandable as whole I can’t give the book full 5 stars, but it’s better than 4 stars, so at the end: 4.5 out of 5.

Kyle Vaughn had three goals in life: become a vet, find the man of his dreams, and start a family. He easily checked off the first item on the list when he took over his grandfather’s veterinary practice. Too bad he wasn’t as lucky in love.
Chaz Hamilton took a leap of faith when he decided to pursue a career in writing, but one best seller didn’t mean he could quit his day job. All work and no play threatened to make Chaz a very dull man when the only romantic action he saw was in the pages of his manuscript. Too bad he couldn’t write his own happily every after.
Circumstances pushed the two men together, and one magical kiss beneath fireworks and stars changed everything. Kyle knew his luck had finally turned around and Chaz found a man far better than any book boyfriend ever written. There was just one problem. Chaz has kept a secret from Kyle that could ruin their chance at a beautiful life together.
Kyle and Chaz learn that the best-laid plans often go awry, the heart has a mind of its own, and the greatest love is unscripted.
The books in the Road to Blissville series can be read either as standalone books or as part of the series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 and older.

Also check this hot excerpt out:
Dr. Vaughn!” A familiar female voice exclaimed. “Oh my goodness! You’re the answer to my prayers.”
I spun around and faced Jenny Davis who operated the Carter County Animal Shelter. “That’s what he said,” I replied, jerking my thumb in Chaz’s direction without thinking my actions through. Chaz gasped, Josh threw his head back and laughed in delight, and I’m pretty sure that Andy growled. I chanced a peek at Chaz’s and caught him staring at me with a dumbfounded expression on his face. How much more obvious did I need to be that I wanted to see where things could go between us?
“Is this a bad time?” she asked nervously. “I’d like to ask a favor of you.” My staff and I volunteered ten to fifteen hours a week treating the dogs and cats at her shelter. The last time I was there, she mentioned that she needed to raise money for the shelter. I figured that she wanted to discuss a fundraiser with me.
“Not at all, Jenny. Josh will be delayed a few minutes, so I have time now.”
“Well, it’s a big favor,” she said hesitantly. “Remember how I mentioned a fundraiser to you?”
“Sure and I’ll help out however I can,” I told her.
“I’m so glad you feel that way because you play a big part in what I have in mind.” She clapped her hands and bounced on her feet. “I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner,” she said to herself.
“How big?” I asked, narrowing my eyes as an uneasy feeling came over me.
That feeling only increased when she broke eye contact and looked down at her feet. “We’d like to do a calendar with the animals at the shelter. One of my staff is an amateur photographer and is willing to donate the time to take and edit the photos.”
“So you’re looking for donations to cover the cost of producing the calendars? I’ll gladly help out with that,” I told her. Jenny didn’t meet my offer with as much enthusiasm as I expected.
“Not exactly the kind of help I was looking for from you,” she said.
“No? How else can I be of service to you?” I asked, clearly confused. I provided free veterinarian services and offered to…
“She wants you to pose for the calendar,” Chaz said, interrupting my thoughts.
I looked over at him and rolled my eyes. “No, she doesn’t.”
“Oh, I think that’s exactly what she’s working her courage up to ask,” Chaz told me. “Isn’t that right, Jenny?”
I looked at Jenny, expecting her to brush off his idea, but all I saw was a hopeful gleam in her green eyes. “Me?” I asked in disbelief.
“Why not you?” Jenny asked, seemingly emboldened when I didn’t refuse the idea outright. “You’re gorgeous, built like a brick house, and adore animals. Who else would I ask?”
“I don’t know, Jenny,” I said hesitantly. “I’m not very photogenic.”
“Stop being so modest,” Jenny told me. “You’re exactly what we need. I can see it now…” Her voice trailed off while she envisioned something in her mind. “Shirtless poses with a kitty, cowboy hat and boots while standing beside a horse…”
“I’d be wearing more than just a pair of boots and a hat, right?” I asked, needing clarification before the conversation went any further.
“Dr. Vaughn!” Jenny’s said in shock. “Why, I’d never suggest such a thing.” Then she covered her mouth with both hands and giggled nervously. “Oh my,” she answered, fanning herself. “That’s not at what I meant at all. Dear me, I meant my offer as a complement, Dr. Vaughn. I thought your love for animals combined with your hunky looks would make a great fundraiser.”
“It would probably sell a lot of calendars,” Chaz said, chiming in.
I looked over at him and caught him staring at me speculatively. “But would you buy a calendar?” I asked.
“Duh,” Chaz said, then added, “it’s for charity.”
You are thristy for a few teaser picture? Right here, I have a few for you. :3
Author bio – Aimee Nicole Walker
I am a wife and mother to three kids, three dogs, and a cat. When I’m not dreaming up stories, I like to lose myself in a good book, cook or bake. I’m a girly tomboy
who paints her fingernails while watching sports and yelling at the referees.
I will always choose the book over the movie. I believe in happily-ever-after. Love inspires everything that I do.
Music keeps me sane.
