When Hollywood It Boy, Reid Alexander, arrives on location to shoot his next movie, his goals are the same as always—film another blockbuster hit and enjoy his celebrity status to the fullest while doing so. His costar is a virtual unknown with whom he had blazing hot chemistry during her auditions. The universe is lining up nicely to grant whatever he wants, as usual, until he’s confronted with unexpected obstacles on location like 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 more recently, bit parts in made-for-TV movies. Nailing the lead role in a wide-release film sent her agent, father and stepmother into raptures, and should have done the same for her. The Problem? 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. Graham Douglas doesn’t fear playing the part of a nerdy dimwit; when it comes to choosing 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.

Between the Lines was exactly the book I needed on vacation. I absolutely loved it and will definitely be rereading it!

It is a YA contemporary romance about life on the set of a teenage movie, being the leading lady, and getting close to the leading man. The book has two narrators Reid, our resident teen heart throb (I kept thinking of him as a Zac Effron type) and Emma, shooting her first blockbuster film as a lead character. They're remaking Pride and Prejudice with a modern twist and playing opposite each other. It's not all glitz and glamor and both lead very private lives, while they show they public one side of them, many people don't know much of the truth. I loved getting inside their heads and knowing exactly what each one was thinking.

The chemistry between not only Emma and Reid, but everyone, is phenomenal. Webber's writing made me feel like I was part of the cast, it was a lot of fun to read this book. She has so many fantastic characters to meet, and they are all so different. I am definitely crushing on both Quinton and Graham, Reid's a little too cocky for my taste but, hey. I loved the look inside being an actor, a life I would honestly never choose for myself, it's void of any privacy.

Tammara Webber is awesome, her writing is addicting in that can't-eat-must-finish-book kind of way. This book is a nice way to appreciate living a normal life. There is a love triangle, which I know some people complain about but I love them! I love not knowing who chooses who, or ends up with who until the end.

We follow Reid and Emma through the demands of filming and being a couple, something they seem to want different things out of. Surprises between the cast constantly come up, they're lives seem fun and I was very entertained. Read this book, it's only $.99 right now for the nook and kindle versions!

I would recommend it to fans of:
