“I kissed Edward Wolverton once. It was everything it was supposed to be—and then some... maybe I’ll kiss him again.”

TV Producer Bea Douglas’s last confession to her former business partner and ex-best friend wasn’t meant to tempt the fates. She’s eager to escape the hypocrisy of the television industry and years of hiding her faith for the convenience of other people. Edward Wolverton may be hot, smart, and funny—but he’s also two steps out of rehab with a self-proclaimed allergy to Christianity. 

But after a club night turns violent, Bea loses her sense of self while Eddie teeters on the edge of relapse. Their connection to each other is the only certainty. To be together, each will have to let go of past pain and have faith in a love that never fades.

Off Script is an uncommon story of the power of love and resilience to bring people together in a society that does its best to tear them apart. 

Ooooooooo couples like this drive me to the point of insanity! JUST BE TOGETHER!! *takes a deep breath* Okay. Back to the beginning.

The story follows Eddie and Bea. Eddie is the hot and smexy TV star who is freshly out of rehab after a huge break-up with his co-star. Bea is a TV producer who is a secret Mormon. The two are friends, but they have a lust and love for each other. Life is never easy and in the society, they are in it is impossible. 

This was not an easy romance at all. They love each other, but they have so many of their own demons to deal with. They help each other as best as they can. It drove me up-the-wall...I just wanted them to be together. It is so obvious! Sighs. It makes sense that they are not right for each other at first because of their demons they are fighting. 

Yes, there is lots and lots of drama going. Sometimes it seemed a little over-the-top. But it was realistic especially in that line of work. 

I felt so bad for Eddie and Bea. They deserved all happiness and joy. People are evil!! Especially that ex of his! Grrr. But yes, I loved both of these characters even with their flaws and issues. Good people who are dealing with lots of stuff. 

I want to read more about Michael! Maybe a short story!!

In the end, I did enjoy this. Lots of drama that was a little over-the-top at times, but I enjoyed it overall. It took FOREVER, but Bea and Eddie need each other. They fit well together. I'll stamp this with 3 stars.
