It seems like they cut some things out of the second season.Spoiler:In the series, Sansa seems really dumb and lovestruck with Joffrey up until Margery comes. I don't know if it was bad acting but I never got the sense that she despised Joffrey. In the book, it's much clearer that she starts hating him after Ned is beheaded. Maybe I'm just forgetting bc I haven't watched the second season in a while.
Also, Theon betraying the Starks seems to come out of nowhere. In the book, you get little hints that he may not be totally trustworthy.
Theon's story line is a lot more in depth in the book like you said, and you see how it builds.
I agree with TWC though, even in the show, Sansa was just loving him over self preservation. After he took her out to see her dad's head on the spike, I think that is where she knew she had to "pretend" to love him in order to survive.
