Lost (Arielle Lockley Series Book 2) (8 page)
Books Reviews with the Curious Ginger Cat. Author: Elle Field. Publication Date: 10 May I'm just another idiot with a dream who is naive enough to hope that I might be the next big star. Etta Millhouse has always had big musical ambitions to match her big voice, but she's also got three very big problems - the addiction she won't admit to, her godmother's illness that she can no longer ignore, and her godmother's useless business partner who she wishes she could ignore.

Keeping an eye on Arielle's poor business decisions is the last thing Etta wants to do when she's offered the chance to record a demo with a top producer. But, a promise is a promise, even if it has her reaching for another pick-me-up And then another.
And then one more. When the secret she must keep for her godmother, Felicity, sends her drug habit spiralling out of control, can Etta battle her demons in time and make her dream happen? Or, will her music career be over before it's even begun? B-Side sits between Lost out now and Found out summer in the Arielle Lockley series - read Etta's version of events in this gritty Lost spin-off. Buy Links. Having already read and thoroughly enjoyed books 1 and 2 in the Arielle Lockley series, I jumped at the chance to read B-Side.
This describes Etta to a T. Etta is rude, prickly, quick-tempered and a total mess. The ultimate flawed heroine! To those who know her, she is also loyal, caring and hugely protective of those she loves.
Month: March 2015
After a lifetime of disappointment, misery and difficulty, Etta relies upon her disagreeable attitude and some chemical enhancements as coping mechanisms to protect her from any hints of emotion or grief that threaten to make an appearance. Unfortunately she finds herself needing more of a boost to get through each day. Etta has her heart set on becoming a singer. Having experience of a family member with similar health problems to Felicit y, this really struck a cord with me.
I un derstood Etta's frustration and, mo re importantly, her fear at se eing one of the m ost important people in her life fade in front of her and, at time s, b ecome someone she does not re cog nise as her beloved godmother. B-Side is different to the earlier books in the Arielle Lockley series. It is more hard-hitting, darker and grittier. The book has a much different feel to that of the earlier books in the series.
The story is well-paced and held my attention until the last page.
I feel that Field has dealt with the darker issues in a sympathetic but realistic fashion. I liked the dry and witty humour in B-Side and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Go,go, go! My TBR pile may be out of control books and counting , but I still can't wait to read these seven books when they come out later this year - which books are you most looking forward to? Since the weather is so miserable, it's the perfect to reminisce about my holiday in Lake Como last month.
- let's connect.
- Becoming: Who you are made to be!
- The Promise Rose!
- Night Broken: A Mercy Thompson Novel.
- What They Say.
