Summary {via GoodReads}:
Maddy Carson is a mass of contradictions. She loves her job as Script Supervisor on a hit TV show, but hates "Hollywood." Super-organized and down-to-earth, Maddy is clearly one of the best at her job, and her strict dating rule - "No Actors!" - helps her keep focused on her career.

However, a budding relationship with Craig, one of the executives at her company, may even propel her into the big leagues. Could Wolf County, her beloved hometown in the mountains, be saved from a financial crisis by creating a reality show featuring the eccentrics in the small ski village? Maddy is determined to try, even when she learns that Craig's agenda doesn't exactly line up with her altruistic goal.

Meanwhile, Maddy still has a full-time job to manage, her family to deal with, and a gorgeous new actor, Adam Devin, determined to wear down her resistance. Eventually, Maddy must learn to break all her self-imposed rules and simply follow her heart.

She thinks: First, let's talk about the fact that that Alison Sweeney - Days of Our Lives star and Biggest Loser host - has written books. Yes, plural. Not one, but two. Scared Scriptless is her second novel, and I have to admit, I kind of liked it. Okay, maybe more than kind of. Honestly, I had a hard time putting down.

I loved the characters and their motivations. Maddy is hard working and driven and has a lot rules and lists. I have so many self-imposed rules and sometimes I have a hard breaking them. There are rules for a reason, right?? Anyway...Craig is completely transparent, and I wanted to smack him for hurting dear, sweet, trusting Maddy. And, can I just say that I would to have hot male actor friends like Billy and Adam. Be still my heart!

This is a book about a woman reaching her potential with the help of those around her. Maddy works through her stumbles and falls to become confident in her own skin...finally!!! Tango, anyone?
