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.
A few months ago I went on vacation. Before I left I purchased a few kindle books to read along my journey. One of the books I purchased was Between the Lines by Tammara Webber. I was just looking for a fun, fast, and easy going read nothing spectacular. But, what I got was one of my favorite books and thankfully, the start to an incredible series. Read my review of Between the Lines.

Thanks to the wonderful author, I am continuing my journey with this fantastic group of young adults on their journeys of self discovery and fame. If you haven't read Between the Lines yet, and are a fan of young adult coming of age stories I definitely recommend it.

Also, if you haven't read the first book, I would not continue reading this review as there may be spoilers. What I recommend you do is go to Amazon/Barnes and Noble, purchase a copy of Between the Lines fall in love with Tammara's exquisite writing, then buy Where You Are because I know you will want to. :)

Where You Are ended up being just as fantastic as its predecessor. The gang of young actors are all back (even the ones we wish would go away *cough*Brooke*cough* and promoting their film, School Pride. Some are still scheming and as conniving as ever.

Picking up right where the first book leaves off Tammara Webber traps us in this beautifully written story of first love and growing up. While the story changes view points back and forth from Emma, Graham, Brooke, and Reid I would say this story is Emma and Graham's story. And, what an amazing story it is! I absolutely adore the two of them, Graham especially. Ever since I read The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti I've had a thing for young dads in books, something about the dedication and maturity it takes to be a young dad.

My favorite part of this book was listening to the internal battles Graham struggles with. He has such strong and real feelings for Emma, it made my heart melt. These characters are your best friends and past relationships, Tammara makes real people in her books, people we can all identify with (whether we love or hate them). I love it, love it, love it.

While I have strong unfriendly feelings towards Reid and Brooke, I know why we need them, well, characters like them. I have two favorite lines from the book (both from Graham):

What did I tell Emma before-that I'm not possessive? screw that.
A truth learned from four years of literary study: nothing beats an antagonist for character building. 

Overall, I am a huge Tammara Webber fan (could you tell?). This woman is phenomenal, I don't just brag about anyone. Book 3 in the Between the Lines series, Good For You, will be out in December, make sure to look for it!
