Highest rating possible! This series is ON MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE LIST!

I listened to the audiobooks of the entire series and I CAN’T RAVE ENOUGH! I absolutely ADORED these characters. To watch Reid Alexander and Brooke Cameron go from despicable characters you’ll hate to characters you’ll not only love, but you’ll want them to have the very best in life is simply phenomenal storytelling. In the first two books, Reid is a player – the worst – and you’ll be cheering for Emma and Graham to not only be together, but be each other’s forever. But first they have to deal with Reid, who wants Emma, and Brooke, who wants Graham more than ANYTHING!

In the last two books, the focus is on Reid and Dori. Meeting Dori has a huge impact on Reid. He sees that he’s worth more, someone to be valued, cherished. He stops being a selfish jerk because he wants to be more. The lows in Reid and Dori’s lives are painful, but how they help each other is inspiring. Then there’s Brooke. She, too, goes through a transformation.

So, why do I LOVE THIS SO MUCH? 1. The transformation the characters. If you’ve ever struggled and wondered if change is possible, well, this series will show that even in the worst of circumstances, it can be done. 2. Tammara Webber has an extraordinary gift of presenting characters’ histories without feeling like you’re bogged down by the flashbacks. They’re seamless and critical to understanding who these individuals are. 3. The characters leap off the page. It’s as if they really exist, and that can only be done if the writing is exceptional. 4. In quick trips around town, I find myself listening to favorite parts of this series. 5. The progression of the series. Honestly, if you’re going to pick it up, please commit to ALL FOUR BOOKS. The development is phenomenal, and having listened to ALL of them, part of the beauty is the overall story arc that takes place from book 1 to book 4. Finally, 6. I have no doubt that five years, ten years from now I’ll still be raving about this series. I love imagining what will happen to them in the future. But it’s extremely rare that I end up thinking about characters after I turn the last page, and this novel has that kind of impact!

From Goodreads:

Book 1 – Between the Lines:

Reid Alexander is used to getting what he wants – and what he wants next is his newest costar, Emma Pierce. The universe is lining up nicely to grant his wish, until he’s confronted with two unexpected obstacles on location: a bitter ex-girlfriend and a rival for Emma’s affections.

Emma Pierce just got her big break after years of filming commercials and made-for-TV movies. Winning the lead role in a wide-release film – opposite the very hot Reid Alexander – should be a dream come true. But Emma’s heart is hiding a secret fantasy: she wants to be a normal girl.

Book 2 – Where You Are:

Graham Douglas doesn’t do romantic relationships, but he was knocked for a loop when he met Emma Pierce on the set of his last film. As they grew closer, he did everything in his power to keep from falling for a girl being pursued by superstar Reid Alexander. Now home in New York, his life is once again under control, until Emma appears and shows him how not over her he is.

Emma Pierce is forsaking an up-and-coming Hollywood career to embark on a life she’s only dreamed of—the life of a regular girl. After spending months burying her feelings for the two night-and-day guys who vied for her heart while filming her last movie, a twist of fate puts her in a coffee shop in the middle of Manhattan with the one she still misses.

Brooke Cameron was a fresh-faced Texas girl when she arrived in LA. Now she’s a beach sitcom star turned conceited heiress on the big screen. Having just survived three months on location with her ex—Hollywood’s reigning golden boy—she’s older and wiser and has set her sights on her close friend Graham. The only thing standing in her way is the girl he can’t forget.

Reid Alexander can sum up his life in one word: boring. Between film projects, there’s little going on outside of interviews, photo shoots, and the premiere of the film he finished last fall. The next-to-last thing he expects is to get a second chance with Emma, the girl who rejected him. The last thing he expects is for his still-bitter-ex to be the one to offer it to him on a platter.

Book 3 – Good for You:

Reid Alexander’s celebrity life is an open book. Every relationship, every error in judgment is analyzed by strangers. His latest mistake totaled his car, destroyed a house and landed him in the hospital. As his PR team works overtime to salvage his image, one thing is clear—this is one predicament he won’t escape without paying for it.

Dori Cantrell is a genuine humanitarian—the outward opposite of everything Reid represents. When his DUI plea bargain lands him under her community service supervision, she proves unimpressed with his status and indifferent to his proximity, and he soon wants nothing more than to knock her off of her pedestal and prove she’s human.

Counting the days until his month of service ends, Dori struggles to ignore Reid’s wicked pull while challenging him to recognize his own wasted potential. But Dori has secrets of her own, safely locked away until one night turns her entire world upside down. Suddenly their only hope for connection and redemption hinges on one choice: whether or not to have faith in each other.

 

Book 4 – Here Without You:

Everyone has secrets.
Some are buried so deep, their existence is forgotten.
But a secret never told can turn into a lie.
And in love, a lie is one thing:
Poison.

Reid’s in love with Dori, though she hasn’t told her parents that she’s fallen hard for the guy they’d forbidden her to see. Now she’s leaving for college, and Reid’s promise not to push her to go public is wearing thin, especially when she can’t – or won’t – return those three important words he wants to hear.

Five years ago, Brooke and Reid were a Thing. That relationship is long gone, detonated amid allegations of cheating – but they still share a secret that would stun everyone they know and alter public perception of them both if it ever comes out. And it’s about to do just that.

Here Without You is the fourth, final installment in the Between the Lines series, which includes: Between the Lines, Where You Are, and Good For You.

 

Easy by Tammara Webber Discussion Questions for Mothers-Daughters, Sisters, Friends & Giveaway

PAGE-TURNER THURSDAY

The New York Times Bestseller:

Easy by Tammara Webber

Readers Guide/Discussion Questions for

Mothers-Daughters, Sisters, Friends

International Giveaway:

Rules: 1 paperback copy of Easy. 18 and older. Outside of the US, only for countries where there is free shipping through The Book Depository. Ends January 18, 4 PM, CST. For more information, check the Rafflecopter.

EasyEasy by Tammara Webber is one of those books that may deeply alter a person’s life. It’s about love, relationships, and rape. Personally, any parent who is sending off a son or daughter to college would benefit from reading Easy. It should be read by sorority sisters and friends. Because what happens in Easy takes place EVERY SINGLE DAY! The events depicted in Easy need to be talked about. Daughters need to be prepared so that they can be proactive and safe just in case they run into a situation that could put them in harm’s way. Sons need to know how to have healthy relationships with young women. If you need guidance with that, then Easy is a helpful source, a launching point for discussion. You may not agree with everything that transpires. That’s okay. It’s about having the opportunity to create a dialogue with those you care about. If you don’t have someone to talk to about these issues or don’t feel comfortable doing so, then that’s okay too. Easy is an outstanding novel to help you formulate your own opinion.

As a parent, teacher, writer, I wanted to create my own guide to share with my friends. Now, I’m posting it on my blog. I personally have purchased Easy for several friends and their college-bound daughters to read and discuss. I was told by my friends that they each read Easy separately, then came together to discuss it. Both moms and daughters said their discussions was extremely helpful and meaningful because of this book.

Note: There also is a helpful publisher’s readers guide in the back of the book. The questions created by me were done before I saw the guide. Use them both.
