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.
I first saw this book on goodreads, I saw someone mark it as to-read. I read the synopsis of the book and I knew I was going to like me, not only that but the cover is absolutely adorable.
Between the Lines is about a girl named Emma who gets cast into the leading role in the modern pride and prejudice movie, this is her first big break, the biggest role she had to play and better yet her co-star is none other than Reid Alexander. He is a famous bad boy and girls go nuts over him.
I really liked the POV’s between Reid and Emma, you got to see the thoughts of both characters, and understand there character. From the beginning I hated Reid. I hate guys who are cocky and perfect and know it.
My favorite character was Graham, he was sweet and you can’t help but fall in love with him, each scene with him I wanted to scream at them to get together already, but Reid intervened and he got to Emma first.
Emma is a very strong character, just the way she carries herself shows confidence, she is strong, smart and best of all she doesn’t fall for people’s tricks.
This book is definitely relatable to teens and adults out there. Whenever I read books that talks relates to their acting career or reality TV show It shows you what happens behind the scenes, besides watching the movies and thinking everything is perfect and that celebrities have perfect lives. The ending wasn’t your typical cookie cutter predictable ending. There was definitely a twist.
I’d say that Between the Lines is borderline YA/Adult. This book had drama, twists, romance and love triangles, I loved every second of it and I can’t wait to read the second that comes out in October 2011!
