Why not, really? I wanted to try one and having the ebook of it already would make things a little easier for me on my first audiobook experience. The story of Between the Lines itself has a lot of issues, but the narrators made it so much better for me. The characters themselves are a mixed bag, a phrase that describes this novel in its entirety. Oh boy, he is a douchecanoe of the highest degree and being in his head was infuriating.

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.

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 characte I am a bit shocked that I ended up liking this book at all in the end. 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 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?!?!?!?! 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? 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 I enjoyed it and might go as far as to read the next in the series.

So yeah, i'll cut straight to the chase I think. This triangle, sucked. Sure, it was different considering one was actually a douche and that the characters which got first introduced didn't end up together, but i think it was plain stupid. The main character did nothing but let everyone grab her and kiss her and she was never truly honest with neither.
She just needed them t I guess some books you simply don't enjoy and no matter how it seems cute, you just don't think its that cute after all. She just needed them to fail at some point and she'd be satisfied with that. Sure, he begs for forgiveness in the end but that's kinda late after sleeping with god knows how many, I do hope he tested himself regularly. I honestly didn't like any of the characters in this book and he ewas probsably the least one I enjoyed if you look past the main.
Some books just truly disappoint you and this one brought me into nothing but boredom. I think I just read really quickly, and skipped msot of the books content because of how I don't remember much, but it wasn't good. From the beginning I was bored and everything which happened, it went so slowly. It wasn't because of the characters actions, it was more how we always had to read how they went to bed and how they kept on doing this and that.
A lot of repetitions too.. Things happened more than once over and over and that's honestly rather frustrating and boring. I don't even know why I decided to use my time on this book, I guess the storyline seemed interesting and in the end it wasn't at all. I'm sure people like this one, but the only reason i'm actually giving it two starts and not one, is because I liked that the good guy from the sideline got the girl and not the obvious choice.
Then again, I still didn't enjoy much of this book. View all 8 comments. Jul 11, Amy Foxy Blogs rated it liked it Shelves: books-i-ve-read , buddy-reads , july Reid is he leading man. The remake is set in the high school scene.
Overall feel for the book was- a group of teenage movie stars are on location away from family and during their free time they behave in adult mannerisms. Partying, sex, going to clubs, etc. I'm Team Graham and hope he is in the next book.
View all 7 comments. I really enjoyed this warmly engaging read from start to finish. It's a POV of two characters, the somewhat naive Emma, a young actress appearing in her first major film, and Reid, a mega teen idol playing the lead, and he hopes, playing Emma as well.
To me Emma was t I really enjoyed this warmly engaging read from start to finish.
