Good For You (Between the Lines #3) by Tammara Webber



Good For You (Between the Lines, #3)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Good For You (Between the Lines, #3)(Source: I borrowed a copy of this book.)
This is the third book in the ‘Between the Lines’ series, but it could probably be read as a standalone.
Reid Alexander has done it again. This time he’s crashed a $200,000 Porsche into a house, and as part of his sentence for drunk driving, he’s got to do some community service.

16-year-old Dori is the daughter of a pastor, and works a community habitat programme every summer. When she ends up as Reid’s boss though she’s not sure what she’s been let in for, especially when he begins to show an interest in her.
Can Reid keep his hands to himself? Is Dori the pastor’s daughter as innocent as she seems? And is Dori really the one for Reid?


This was an okay read. The romance was better than the first two books, but it was still only okay for me.

This book focused on Reid rather than Emma and Reid, which was an obvious change. Reid himself hadn’t changed at all though, and even though he began to develop real feelings for Dori, I initially thought it a bit creepy that he was hitting on a 16-year-old!
Dori seemed to have a sensible head on her shoulders, but I disliked the way everyone treated her like a na├»ve baby when she clearly wasn’t.

The storyline in this was okay, although I have to say that the decorating stuff was pretty dull. I thought that the romance was better in this one – we actually got some really sweet moments, and some steamy ones too which made this by far the best book in this series.
Overall though, this was still only an okay romance story for me, and if I hadn’t already had all three books to read, I would never have read this far.
6.75 out of 10.

    1. I wouldn't have done if I hadn't already had them. Figured I just get them out the way!
