Between the Lines: Between the Lines, Book 1 | [Tammara Webber]

Between the Lines: Between the Lines, Book 1

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.

Publisher's 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.

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.

    "This is a teen romance"

    I chose this book based on the number of stars and the publisher's description. The thing that was frustrating is that it doesn't say that it is a teen romance anywhere. I had a hard time getting into it knowing that it was about people ranging from 17-20. Kind of hard to take seriously for someone in their early thirties.

    That said - it was well written and had great character development... I am sure that it would be very enjoyable for a younger audience.

    I am a visually impaired student, who has recently discovered the joys of reading, especially audiobooks. My genre of choice is romance. Thus far in my readings, my favorite authors include Julie James and Lori Foster.

    Story
    "I was surprisingly underwhelmed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I had read "Easy," also by Tammara Webber and I really enjoyed it. I recommended that book to a friend. When I started "Between the Lines," I wanted to feel the same satisfaction I had before. About halfway through the book, I came to terms that it probably wasn't going to happen this time around.There are many characters. For me it was easy to confuse who's whos manager, friend, castmate, etc. Reid and Emma were interesting characters but I feel THEIR story just kind of fizzled out. I know this book is part of a series, but a more distinct break in the relationship would have made it better.For these reasons and then some, I would not recommend this book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of this story was the insight into young Hollywood. The story depicts well the complexities of being a young actor/actress and the lives they lead on and off camera.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd and Todd Haberkorn ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so. Todd Haberkorn, as the voice of Reid, really captured the inflections of a ~18yo. My only criticism is that all the male character he voiced sounded the same. Kate Rudd gave Emma more mature tone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. As the headline states, I was quite underwhelmed


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good about 4 hours in. After that, it never went anywhere for me. I do not intend to read the remaining books of the series.

    "Decent story with a nice narration"

    I am a bit shocked that I ended up liking this book at all in the end. I was convinced that I was going to 1 star it for much of the story. And, honestly, it probably deserves 1 star.

    Reasons this book enraged me:

    1) We are stuck inside the brain of a huge jackass. When I first started reading this book, I thought Reid was going to be this bad boy that got reformed by the goody-goody girl. That isn't what happened. I kind of want to give props to the author for having the guts to write a character that is such an unabashed douche. He is spoiled, obnoxious, self-aggrandizing, rude, and just the kind of male character that I love to hate. Yet we are stuck reading from his ignoramus point of view for half of the story. It was sometimes laughable how much I hated Reid. At least he wasn't homophobic or racist, he had that going for him...

    2) The love triangle. Made popular by Twilight, the love triangle rears its ugly head in this book. The whole story is a wishy-washy back and forth between Reid and Graham and Emma just can't make up her mind?!?!?!?! ::wails::


    3) The miscommunications. Did Emma ever hear the saying, "don't assume, it makes an ass out of 'u' and 'me'"?? I think not. If she had just asked some simple questions, much of the drama of this book could have been avoided.

    So clearly I hated this book, right?

    Wrong.

    I think it was the narration that won me over in the end. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook, and even when the characters annoyed the crap out of me, I remained entertained. I also liked the addition of the surprises towards the end of the book, one of which I saw coming from far away, the other less so. It added a bit of intrigue to a otherwise mundane story.

    I suspect that I should have hated this book... but I didn't. I enjoyed it and might go as far as to read the next in the series.

    "I like this author."

    The first book by Tammara Webber that I listen to was "Easy" and I loved it. So looked up what else she had and this series came up and they are good. I am looking forward to more books by her!

    "Good listen for a 3rd in a seriec"

    If you listened to the books in sequence, I was surprised that this seemed like a "new book" in a way, since the book deviated from the main character Emma Pierce in the first two books to Reid Alexander and a new "co-star" in book 3. I liked how they closed out the first two books in book 3, but it did take a turn from what I expected. Overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it and would look forward to another in the series.

    "I was entertained by this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and have recommended this to a friend. I liked the characters and could pick a few actors in my head that would fit the bill for the leads. I think that most could relate to the situation, not necessarily the movie star part, but the desires and reservations.


    What other book might you compare Between the Lines to and why?

    I don't know what exactly I would compare this to. I used to only read biographies and non fiction so this is a new genre for me and so far I am really enjoying it.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd and Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

    I liked Graham of course. Sweet, caring, and he looked out for both Emma and Brooke.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the evolution of all of the characters. It made me anticipate the second book just to see what happened to each of them.

    "Becoming Young Adults"

    Good story of teenagers becoming young adults and how their choices affected their lives.
    Love Tammara Webber's writing style but did not like the mail voice for the hot young movie star. The follow on next 2 books are also very good. I will read more of whatever Tammara Webber writes.
