Between the Lines

Tammara Webber
(Thank you Tammara for allowing me to read your wonderful novel!)
(Note: only currently available in Kindle & Nook format!)
So, some of you probably know that I spend an abnormally large amount of time on twitter harassing talking to people. So, one day, the lovely blogger ABookVacation posted a picture of THIS BOOK. and I'm going to be honest, I immediately fell in love with it. It's so simple and yet SO TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME. (Surely you guys have figured out that I'm obsessed with covers by now, yea?) Point being, I am so glad she did, or I might have NEVER found this AMAZING story! That I want sitting on my bookshelf! Signed with a pretty glossy cover! So you guys, I REALLY WANT YOU ALL TO READ THIS BOOK!!! OK?!!?)

Emma is an actress. I would say aspiring, but well, she's more forced than aspired. That doesn't mean she isn't good at her job though. So, when when she gets cast in a big Hollywood film opposite Reid Alexander, she has mixed feelings. Because A) She feels that the movie, School Pride, is offensive to all Jane Austen fans as a "modern P&P" B) She didn't really want the role. but C) Reid Alexander is REALLY HOT. And her best friend, Emily, has this huge crush on him, so she knows she can't turn down the role that everyone in their right mind would want.
So she takes it.
And when on set, sparks fly. Between her and Reid. But, things are never that simple when she gets to know the other cast mates, such as Graham. WHO. I. LOVE!

But back to Reid, as such half the book is in his POV, so he can not be forgotten. He's kind of your typical bad boy actor, except that his life isn't perfect. He has problems at home, no rules to follow, and for the first time in a long time, he's found someone he really cares about, and he has no idea what to do about it. Because he doesn't really know how to do more than one night stands.
The book is laced with snippets from the film as they force Emma, Reid, and the other castmates, to confront things they didn't really want to confront. Which I love.
Plus, I think it's kind of awesome to get a "behind-the-scenes" look of a film. How the words "action" and "cut" can have such significant impact on their emotions and expectations.
I really loved all of the characters. Even the ones I wanted to hate- I loved.

Tammara has such a way with characterizations that it's impossible not to love them all. Truly. Even the ones I sometimes wanted to punch in the face. (Ahem.)
Did I already tell all of you to go buy it?! It's only ONE DOLLAR!!!! Seriously. Best dollar you will EVER SPEND!
Please?
