I honestly thought this would be a quick read that was a little enjoyable, a lot cheesy, and nice filler between other books. I really didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did.
It’s a book about teen movie stars. That’s why I wasn’t really sure about this book. I’m not really one for celebrity drama in real life, so why would I want to read a book about it? Turns out, the celebrity doesn’t play a huge part. It does come into play, but it’s basically a book about teens and their lives.
Emma is thrown into the world of the famous, but she’s trying to maintain her ties to home and as much of a regular life as she can. So when she starts to fall for one guy meanwhile having the hottest actor of the moment after her, life gets a little complicated. I liked how Webber kept Emma just outside the full celebrity life. It made her likable and a little bit relatable. She’s living the life a lot of people would love to have, if only for a day.
The two guys in this book are likable in their own way. Reid is a bit of a “bad boy,” but he’s also got a bit of a heart. Graham is a little mysterious, but always a gentleman. Webber managed to write the two types of guys most girls want to date at least once in life. I know who my favorite is, but it’s not hard to root for both.
The secondary characters in this novel are fantastic. Emily, Emma’s best friend, is one of the best. She doesn’t let Emma get away with anything. She may be a bit starstruck, but she’s still there for Emma. The people Emma meets on set are interesting and I liked that they kept Emma from getting completely wrapped up in the guys in her life. They may not be able to keep her grounded, but they were able to keep her head on straight.
Between the Lines is a book that surprised me. It was sweeter than I thought it would be, and not as cheese-filled as I expected. It was a quick read, but sometimes those are what you’re looking for.
