Overview

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.

(Mature Young Adult / New Adult)

I'm addicted to coffee and Cherry Garcia frozen yogurt. I love shopping for earrings, because they always fit, even if I occasionally "forget" to work out. I'm a hopeful romantic who adores novels with happy endings, because there are enough sad endings in real life.

**Although there are no spoilers for GOOD FOR YOU, there are spoilers if you have not read BETWEEN THE LINES and WHERE YOU ARE.** So....Tammara Webber did it. She made me, against all odds, love Reid Alexander. Reid amused me in BETWEEN THE LINES. He was a jerk, yes, but when it came down to the wire, he was no match for Graham when it came to winning Emma's heart. I was not amused with Reid in WHERE YOU ARE. The way he actively schemed with Brooke to split Emma and Graham up? Uh uh. Although he redeemed himself in a small way at the end, I just didn't know how I would take to him in GOOD FOR YOU. I knew I would love the book because, HELLO?, Tammara Webber is a genius author. I just didn't know how I could ever move on. But Webber took the egocentric, reckless, dangerous Reid and made him into something more. You get to see, in a way, how Reid became the way he is. Reid lives in a dysfunctional family. It's all he knows. His mother is an alcoholic, his father is emotionally distant. He hasn't lived with any type of boundary in five years and he's only nineteen. That's a sure recipe for disaster. Add to that a lavish lifestyle in which people live to cater your every whim, it's not wonder Reid is a Class A jerk. Then, Reid meets Dori. Dori is as selfless as they come. The daughter of a pastor and a nurse, she has been raised to serve those in need. Dori is generous, kind, respectful, loving. She is basically the classic good girl. Dori also happens to be hiding a lot about herself from everyone she knows. When Dori meets Reid, it's not pretty. They don't know each other, but they do know enough to write the other off. But day by day, as Reid proves himself at the job site, and as Dori lets down her guard, they discover that maybe, they could be good for one another. I really don't know what I can say about this book without being stupid. I loved it like crazy. The way Tammara portrayed these characters, fiery and passionate one moment, fragile and unsure the next, it made me dizzy with happiness. The characters are fully fleshed, their stories, the painful journeys, are heart breaking and raw. GOOD FOR YOU was an emotionally draining yet beautifully uplifting book that I could not have enjoyed more. Favorite Quote: "There's something uncontaminated about her, and I don't even mean sexually or whatever. I mean the way she is, at her core. Like when you wake up and the world has been blanketed by snow overnight, and not a single footstep or tire track has spoiled the untouched perfection of it. (ebook, 46%) " 'When you tell me to be good, it makes me want to be good,' I say, hearing the undisguised desire in my voice. I run my fingers through the hair at her temples, taking her face between my palms, and she doesn't move. 'It also makes me want to be very, very bad.' And then I kiss her." (ebook, 50%)

when i first bought the book i didn't know if i was going to like it or not considering the second book in the series was a let down. I am happy to write that it was just as good as the first one if not better and if your were like me and was a little disappointed in the second i have to tell you it is a must read and will make up for the lat book :)

Ok a little bit dissapointed with this book. Im wicked dissapointed actualy. I thought "good for you" was good but i was majorly dissapointed that you never kept going on with the unfinished love story between emma and graham. You left this deep love story unfinished and ended with a bitter sex scene which i wish could have been finished with a sweet ending instead of a bitter ending. I guess we will never know the end to this love story and i am very dissapointed about that. I wish Tamarra would make one more book to finish of this endless love story with a fairytale ending that will everything come together.Tamarra i hope you read this and take my idea of making another book to conclude this series. I love books one and two! Thumbs up if you hope Tamarra makes one more book in the between the lines series to conclude the love story of emma and graham.

This book had me feeling the same giddiness I felt with the last two books in this series. I loved reid's character in this and everyhing that happened. This book had me in tears as well and was yet again a book I could not put down. I am sad to say that I am officially done with this series and I wish another would come out, maybe a relationship for brooke or a continuation of the conversation reid had with brooke in this book (must read this book to understand what i mean).

It felt like the rest of the series was leading up to this. Because I loved Emma and Graham so much, I didn't even want to read this book.I thought "ew a whole book about Reid? Why?" But this was remarkabe. If you're on the fence, read it. Just read it!

This book was flat-out amazing. After reading the first two books, I didn't think this one could top the first book, but it did. Reid shows a different side of himself in this book, and he finds another girl other than Emma! I loved everything about this book, it made me laugh, cry, everthing! For being 600 pages long, the book went by really fast; I didn't want it to end! A perfect book to read on a rainy summer day. Loved it!

I am a huge fan of Tammara Webber's Between The Lines series, and they are honestly one of my favorite contemporary reads! The first and second books follow Emma and Graham's story, who are Reid's costars, however in this installment, it follows Reid the story of Reid, post losing Emma to Graham and finally coming to terms with it. I had my doubts to be honest, I really wanted the third book to also be about Emma and Graham because they became a favorite of mine. Also this is more like a companion novel to the first two. You can read this without reading the first two, but if you're planning on reading them all, start with the first book, and trust me, you won't be disappointed! Reid crashes his one week old porsche, so he lands himself community service to help rebuild the house he crashed into. Enters Dori, the humanitarian volunteer loving preacher's daughter. I loved the bickering and fluttered moments between those two. Dori wants nothing to do with Reid, at the beginning, and Reid takes this up as a challenge. I mean, he's never been rejected, he is the hottest male celebrity right now, think Justin Bieber or Joe Jonas our time. I loved how his character grows throughout the book. From the jerk he usually is, to actually starting to CARE about something, whether its Dori or just giving a crap about his actions and thinking of the consequences. As for Dori, throughout the whole book she struggles with her growing attraction towards Reid, she was already set in labeling him as a womanizing Jerk, and usually confided those thoughts to her older sister. Oh and a head's up, but I cried reading this book; yes it's not just a fluffy read, it broke my heart and was very realistic, you don't always get everything you want in life right? Reid was my least favorite character in this series, and what started off with me sneering at his "charm" and supposed wit, turned into actual likeness to his character, without him actually drastically changing from jerk to saint and me doubting the character change. Tammara webber knows how to write! When I read the first book, I loved it so much and had SUCH high expectations for the second one, usually I end up being disappointed, but Where You Are was as good! and I can say the same thing for the last book, Good For You. Overall, I loved Good For You, it was a great contemporary read and I hope all you contemporary lovers give it a try! This has only been released in digital format so it's very easy to get your hands on it. Keep note of this author, because I can't wait for any new novel she releases! Also the author posted that she's planning on writing a fourth book in this series! This is surprising news to me so i'm really excited! Check out her website for more information.

I love Tammara Webber and have been waiting for this book for a while and let me tell you I was not at all disappointed. I loved this book all the way to the very end and was sad when the series finally ended. To begin, I have read probably every book in the YA genre, I am obsessed. These books are one of my favorite and this book is my favorite in the series. The relationship between Reid and Dori is so heart warming, not to give anything away. It gave me chills until the very end. I loved this book also because I was always guessing on what was going to happen. Who was going to give up or not, read the book to find out what I'm talking about. I felt whatever the characters were feeling and to me I believe that is what makes this close to one of the best YA novels I have read. If you want a great read that will give you chills, buy this book!!!

Tammara Webber is an amazing author... she's my favorite now... I love how she writes, I cried a lot reading this book. I love Reid and Dori. I just hope she'll write about Brooke's story too... Anyway, buy this book, you will not regret it. It's quirky, adorable and awesome. I absolutely love it. If by chance the author reads this comment, Please write more. I will be looking forward to more of your books! Thank you for giving us a good book, it touched my heart and soul.

Good for You by Tammara Webber was an unexpected gem. I admit that I have not read self-published authors in the past. There are so many self-published books and I don’t know how to discern which one I wish to read. In this particular case, Good For You was recommended by a review site that I frequent. The premise and the review intrigued me so I purchased Good For You. This is actually the third book in a series, Between the Lines, but I didn’t feel that I had missed anything integral by not reading the other two books first. Good For You is an accessible story that builds upon itself. There was a natural progression of events and I wasn’t exactly certain how the story would end up until the end. I had my own hopes for the primary characters, Dori and Reid, but I wasn’t sure if my hopes would blossom into reality. I liked Dori and Reid. I also liked their growth, their maturity, their interactions with others, and their individual journeys of self-discovery that kept intersecting with one another. As I read Good For You, I deliberately slowed down my reading pace, which was difficult as I wanted to know what would happen next. I also didn’t want the story to end. If you want to take a chance on a self-published book, I recommend Good For You. I look forward to reading Ms. Webber’s previously published books and her future books. P.S. This is the same review I submitted to GoodReads.
