Between the Lines by Tammara Webber

Goodreads Summary:

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.

Author recommendation: Mature teens+ (language/drinking/sexual situations)

Mary's Review:

I was first introduced to Tammara Webber when I read her book Easy. I loved that story and then I saw that she wrote this series and I thought that I would give it a chance.

I loved this story. It is much different story line.  Reid is a "Hollywood It Boy" and is a huge celebrity.  He knows that he is a celebrity too!  He lands the lead role of a Jane Austen modern adaption of Pride and Prejudice.  The cast includes: his bitter ex-girlfriend, a couple of his friends, and his co-star is unknown.

Enter Emma, the unknown co-star.  I loved Emma.  I loved her innocence, her trust, and how she can see the good in all.  Then there is Graham *sigh* (I LOVE Graham!)  He was a little bit mysterious but he treated Emma great and was a good friend.  As for Reid, he cared for Emma but he was more of a "player-type".

As the filming continued you can see Reid pursue Emma more, Emma liking Graham, and a twist I did not see at all!  All the characters are great.  Tammara writes them so well together!

It is a great read and would recommend for others.
