Unwritten by J.R. Gray Instagram Tour

Now Available Unwritten by J.R. Gray

Movie Star Lessons: Success is lonely.

I should have been on top of the world but I felt trapped, suffocated by fame. My life wasn’t my own. I belonged to the fans and the media. Too famous to leave my house without attracting a crowd. I’d almost resigned myself to the impossibility of a relationship in the time of hook-up apps made more impossible as an actor, until I met the only person forbidden to me: My director.

Four months of working side by side while trying to keep my hands to myself, or one of us would lose our job. The temptation was going to kill me.

Unwritten is a slow burn, May-December romance with low angst and a dog that’s in charge. This book can be read as a standalone.

I was falling and we were in the dirt half on top of one another.

“What the fuck?” I said for the both of us. I tried to roll off and realized our feet were tangled. I sat up and glared at Alfred who looked pretty proud of himself. “Yooooou mother fucker.”

“What?” Mel asked as he tried to get the leash off our feet.

“Not you. The dog.” I was staring Alfred down.

“He didn’t mean to, I’m sure.”

Was it time for me to let my dog talking side slip and let my irrational habit of talking to my dog spill all over him? “No, he fully meant to.”

Mel looked at me a half-smile on his lips. “Okay.”

“He’s devious,” I said not sure where to put my hands. “Maybe if you move sideways a little?”

Mel tried to slide off of me but we just ended up more tangled and laughing. “Okay, he got us good. Maybe he is devious.”

“I think the only way we are going to get out of this is if we unleash him and maybe try using the end to unwind?”

“Can you reach him?” Mel asked putting a hand under his head pulling a leg a little making his knee brush over my still hard cock.

“Oh.” My eyes went wide.

He tilted his head, brows rising. “Sorry… only not really.”

I blew out a breath and tried to reach Alfred but every inch I moved caused Mel’s thigh to rub over my cock. And to top it off every time I got close to a finger in Alfred’s collar he moved backward, keeping himself just out of reach.

“You bastard.”



“We can’t,” I said, going against everything my body was screaming at me to do. I knew if I kissed him, I wouldn’t want to stop. It would crush me.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the third book in the series, and deals with a new couple. I still think you would do well to read the books in order, and Quell and Hale feature significantly in this book – and we learned from their issues with fame and the crazy of stardom about the impact it has on your mental wellbeing.

Tobias has megastar status, having starred in Resolution movies for eight years. He has a bodyguard and cannot go anywhere without attracting attention – so he finds himself at 24, mostly alone, with the bodyguard and his dog, Arthur. On a rare evening out to meet the cast of the new movie about to be filmed, he is instantly attracted to Mel, who turns out, unfortunately, to be the film's director, so totally off limits.

We get to join them on their journey of restraint and caution, as they navigate their chemistry and the making of the film, and try to see if there is a long-term future to be had. I really, really enjoyed the book, and read it pretty much in one sitting. It is fun, sad, engaging, and sexy. Even when they are behaving, the heat between them singes the pages.

An excellent addition to the series, and I could definitely have read more about their adventures in Greece and more about Vancouver... but imagining it was good too!

I really enjoyed this book. It could be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading the previous two. This book showed the other side of being famous, the side no one really thinks about. No one sees that you can't go to the store or see your friends or just be yourself. You always have that persona to live up to. Mel and Tobias have instant heat, but they are basically coworkers and can't do anything until filming is over. There was an age gap between them as well. These two had to keep it together and it was hard at times. I liked seeing things unfold and seeing characters from the previous books. And if you are like me and a dog lover, you'll love Tobias' dog.

Unwritten is the third installment in the Unscripted series. It can be read as a standalone, but it does mention the couple and the circumstances regarding their relationship from the first two books.

Tobias is a famous actor. He started when he was just a child, so this life is all he really knows. He's been stalked and now requires a bodyguard, who has turned into a friend. Unfortunately, it means Tobias can't have a normal dating life, whether it's signing up for a dating app only for it crash from traffic when people find out he's on there or those apps not believing it was him and not allowing him on. So, a simple hookup becomes a problem. He's been with women but knows he bi and wants to take those steps with a man. He's resigned that the life he wants isn't going to happen, so he spends all his time with Alfred, his dog. Alfred has a huge personality and is "in charge" whether Tobias believes it or not.

When he meets the director of his new movie, he's unexpectedly surprised how cute he is. When they spend the night drinking and talking like they've known each other for years, Tobias knows he's in trouble. Their friendship is so easy, and Tobias looks forward to seeing Mel every day until it becomes so hard to be around him without taking the relationship further.

Mel thinks Tobias is the hottest man he's ever seen. But being twenty years senior and his director, has him putting the brakes on that line of thinking. He would lose his job he loves by getting involved with Tobias. As much as Mel wants to be with Tobias, he knows for both their sakes they can't risk it. Would Tobias be willing to wait? Would Mel still choose him at the end of the day?

This story pulls you in from the beginning. The angst is high and keeps you rooting for this couple. I loved getting a glimpse of Quell and Hale and the progression of their relationship. I was a huge fan of Finley, the bodyguard, and Alfred, a very smart pupper.

I can't wait to see what's next.



The kiss deepened. Tongues, slow, and sensual. There was so much passion in it. Kissing him was worth all of it.
