Where You Are (Between the Lines #2)
BLURB: 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.

OMG! This book was so much better than the first book. This book was amazing. This book has chapters from Graham's,Emma's ,Brooke's and Reid's point of view.
Warning : This review is more of a rant than a review .There will be a lot of pictures and some things may be incoherent.
Dear Graham.I LOVE YOU DUDE! I want to apologize for not giving you enough attention in book #1 .This might have had something to do with the fact that I was not aware how awesome you were.Seeing the world and reading this book from your point of view opened my eyes !
Graham is such an amazing character.I loved him in this book.
Emma was much more bearable now that she wasn't into the mean and famous guy (a.k.a Reid).She also grew as a character which is something I liked.
Brooke as the evil mastermind was GENIUS! I did not want to get on her bad side.She can switch from scary to normal so quickly.Her relationship with Reid is somewhat like this:
She's angry at him one second and giving him credit for a good plan the next.She is very focused and plans to get what she wants using any means necessary.She reminds me a little of Regina (the blonde girl below from Mean Girls)
She's pretty,popular but she has a more complex background than Regina.Her history with Reid is one of the high points of the novel.It's nice to find out what happened between them and this information also explains a lot of things and makes her a multi-dimensional character.
Reid ,I don't like this guy .I just don't.I don't hate him but I don't like him either.He does come across as real as I know a lot of people think like him and that's what makes this character fresh and bearable.There was ONE instance when I did like the guy and I hope to see more of that in the next book.
The only problem I had with this book was the fact that there were some parts that really frustrated me.I can't tell you which but I thought Emma and Graham wouldn't go through this much petty drama BUT I liked the drama in some parts too .
Overall,This is one good that you NEED to read!
This book gets a thumbs up
