So after reading Easy by Tammara Webber I was curious what other books she might have written. I came across the Between the Lines books and was immediately drawn into the high profile world of some Hollywood up and comings. When you first meet Emma Pierce she is so down-to-Earth and you can’t quite help feeling sorry for her…almost – I mean she is an up and coming Hollywood actress how much pity does she really need. Then there’s Graham Douglas – easy going, sexy, almost nurturing – of course I wanted him to get the girl. Brooke Cameron was about as much trouble as you would expect from a spoiled-brat diva. When she has her mind set on trouble…look out. Reid Alexander is a sexy, bad-boy, with a troubled home life. I couldn’t stand him and everything he did made me nuts.
This series has 3 published books with the 4th and final coming out around August 2013. I liked book 1 but I didn’t totally fall in love with it. I continued on with the series because I liked it enough to wonder what happens next with the characters. I fell in love with book 2. What can I say I’m a sucker for a happily ever after. But most surprising was book 3. It was my favorite and believe it or not I finally fell for Reid, whom I thought was a giant, whiny pain in the ass in the first books. When I finally figured him out I was so happy that I decided to keep going with the series. I can’t wait for book 4 so that I can find out what happens with Reid and Dori.
Between the Lines – Started 2/6/13 – Finished 2/6/13
When Hollywood It Boy, Reid Alexander, arrives on location, his intentions are simple: film another blockbuster hit while enjoying his celebrity status to the fullest. His costar is a virtual unknown with whom he has blazing hot chemistry, and the universe is lining up nicely to grant whatever he wants – until he’s confronted with a bitter ex-girlfriend and a rival for the first girl to spark his genuine interest in years.
Emma Pierce just got her big break after more than a decade of filming commercials for grape juice, department stores and tampons, and bit parts in made-for-TV movies. Nailing the lead role in a wide-release film should send her into raptures. But Emma is experiencing a building desire to be normal, and starring in a silly, modernized adaptation of one of her favorite novels–opposite the very hot Reid Alexander–isn’t going to advance that aspiration.
Indie actor Graham Douglas isn’t overly picky when it comes to film roles. If it pays, he’ll do it. Besides, his friend Brooke Cameron snatched up the role of the bitchy hot girl and could use his help as a buffer, because her ex is the star. Graham has no problem keeping a handle on the situation, until he finds himself attracted to Reid’s costar, Emma, the girl Reid is pursuing full-throttle with his standard arsenal of charm, good looks and arrogance.
Where You Are – Started 2/7/13 – Finished 2/7/13
Graham Douglas doesn’t do romantic relationships, but he was knocked for a loop when he met Emma Pierce on the set of his last film. As they grew closer, he did everything in his power to keep from falling for a girl being pursued by superstar Reid Alexander. Now home in New York, his life is once again under control, until Emma appears and shows him how not over her he is.
Emma Pierce is forsaking an up-and-coming Hollywood career to embark on a life she’s only dreamed of–the life of a regular girl. After spending months burying her feelings for the two night-and-day guys who vied for her heart while filming her last movie, a twist of fate puts her in a coffee shop in the middle of Manhattan with the one she still misses.
Brooke Cameron was a fresh-faced Texas girl when she arrived in LA. Now she’s a beach sitcom star turned conceited heiress on the big screen. Having just survived three months on location with her ex–Hollywood’s reigning golden boy–she’s older and wiser and has set her sights on her close friend Graham. The only thing standing in her way is the girl he can’t forget.
Reid Alexander can sum up his life in one word: boring. Between film projects, there’s little going on outside of interviews, photo shoots, and the premiere of the film he finished last fall.
The next-to-last thing he expects is to get a second chance with Emma, the girl who rejected him. The last thing he expects is for his still-bitter-ex to be the one to offer it to him on a platter.
Good For You – Started 2/7/13 – Finished 2/8/13
Reid Alexander’s life is an open book. His Hollywood celebrity means that everything he does plays out in the public eye. Every relationship, every error in judgment is analyzed by strangers. His latest mistake totaled his car, destroyed a house and landed him in the hospital. Now his PR team is working overtime to salvage his image. One thing is clear–this is one predicament he won’t escape without paying for it.
Dori Cantrell is a genuine humanitarian–the outward opposite of everything Reid is about. When his DUI plea bargain lands him under her community service supervision, she proves unimpressed with his status and indifferent to his proximity, and he soon wants nothing more than to knock her off of her pedestal and prove she’s human.
Counting the days until his month of service is over, Dori struggles to ignore his wicked magnetic pull while shocking him with her ability to see past his celebrity and challenging him to see his own wasted potential. But Dori has secrets of her own, safely locked away until one night turns her entire world upside down. Suddenly their only hope for connection and redemption hinges on one choice: whether or not to have faith in each other.
