306 Pages

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.


Let me just start by saying, I adore Tammara Webber's writing. I love how she can go from something completely heartbreaking and angst filled with Easy, and then turn around and give us sweet and happy and fluff. The Between the Lines series is just that, pure fluff and I love it.

In the first book we are introduced to the main players: Reid, Emma, Graham, and Brooke. All four come together while filming a movie. Reid is Hollywoods It boy, Emma is the newcomer, Graham is the indie actor, and Brooke is the, well, the stuck-up Hollywood starlet who went from star to sidekick.

In Where You Are, Graham and Emma are working at keeping their relationship alive (and secret) from the public. The problem? Brooke has suddenly decided that Graham, her longtime bestfriend would be perfect for her. She enlists the help of Reid to break the two of them up, playing on Reid's inability to say no to rejection.

Graham and Emma's relationship is sweet, like toothache sweet. Towards the beginning, it was a little too much. I was like, no one is this perfect. But towards the end when all the drama was unleashed, I came to really love their relationship with each other.

Reid still remains my favorite character in the series. He's such an ass, but I love him. Reading his POV is hilarious. Also, I think he may be the character with the most depth. Weird, I know. But he's the only character who really goes through changes and grows as each book progresses. I feel so bad for him and just want him to have someone who can see what a great guy he is underneath the exterior.

Brooke needs to take a long walk off a short pier. I feel no sympathy for her. She's conniving liar who throws a fit when things don't go her way. I'm sorry Princess, but you can't just wake up and decide someone is perfect for you AFTER you see that person happy with someone else. She uses everyone around her. No wonder she has no real friends, she's completely fake with everyone. It's going to take something major happening for her to ever be in my good graces.

This series is the perfect read if you just want something fun. I cannot wait to read the third one!



  1. I just got book 1 at RT last week. I can't wait to read this series because my friend Fred loves it. <3

  2. I just started this series on Monday, but I'm already done with the first two books. So freaking good. I think I like this storyline better than Easy, though...not such sad undertones. Plus, I liked the manipulation, even if I saw it play out even before Brooke thought it up. :P
