I loved this book just as much as THIS BEATS PERFECT Alexia and Greta are two girls from very different worlds Alexia an American with a wealthy record company exec dad and Greta a Londoner who lives with her grandmother on a houseboat on a canal The two meet at a London production company where Alexia has come against her parents' wishes to pursue her filmaking dreams and Greta hopes to get closer to THE KEEP the band whose fan club she heads They develop a friendship but both are keeping secrets that will test their friendship and their character Great dialogue great characters especially Granny and pop culture references So fun and smart such a delight to read One of the things Denton does so well is look at the music industry from angle not usually seen and approaches it with tongue in cheek humor so that the reader is in on the joke Max and Amelie from THIS BEATS PERFECT make cameos

A Secret Beat This Beats Perfect #2Eets fellow intern Greta Greta's East End upbringing couldn't have been different from Alexia's but she's every bit as hungry for her big breakBut both girls have secretsWhile Alexia doesn't want anyone knowing about her privileged connection to The Keep Greta has been anonymously running their #1 so. Granny parted the crowd like a boat cutting through water 'COMING THROUGH' she boomed as the young fans hastily made way for this doddery old lady who was heaving and puffing like she might keel over and die at any moment She winked at Greta who knew that this was a tried and tested trick The kind of unassuming humour above is one of the best features of A Secret Beat Combined with Rebecca Denton's career experience in media the result is an entertaining venture into the music industry that doubles up as an emotionally resonant coming of age taleIn brief this is a book about friendship staying true to yourself and doing the right thing Despite the strength of the relationship between Alexia and Greta Denton doesn't need to spend much time writing in sappy declarations of the protagonists' feelings Their connection is apparent in between the lines through hectic weeks of work filming on set and managing the talent Maybe a little focus could have been placed on developing their friendship the plot skips uite uickly but what's given is than enough to appreciate its complexitiesIt has to be acknowledged that Alexia can be extremely unlikeable At times it beggars belief that readers should still sympathise with the rich entitled white girl who grew up on daddy's money as she complains about the hardships of her life In certain scenes her behaviour had me close to chucking the book out the nearest window Figuratively as I don't hate my Kindle that much I wouldn't say that Alexia ever fully redeems herself within the timespan of the novel as people don't change instantaneously but she does impressively take responsibility for her mistakes and seek to become better That's what ultimately makes her somebody we can root forGreta on the other hand begins as a bit of an enigma You don't know if she's supposed to be charming or uncomfortable but once you get to know her well she's impossible not to like Greta doesn't beat out her granny though who's hands down the awesomest character of the bunchThen there's the matter of A Secret Beat being flat out funny Greta's effusive bubbly personality is contagious and Alexia's snarky disenchantment has its own perks Add in a few well timed mishaps and a bucketload of chemistry and the wit flies off the page This is a comedy after all regardless of how grim things seem the HEA makes it all worthwhileThe electric cast of supporting characters jumps to life in admirable realism Alongside Greta's legendary granny there's Mr Coleman Alexia's landlord Karen head of Bright Star Productions's factual team and many others whose little uirks and moments of personality make everything better In fact with its mild awkwardness and maturing of its main characters the whole story feels like it could take place in real life That can't be said of the majority of YA novels even purportedly realistic contemporariesFor readers like myself who are unfamiliar with the behind the scenes of music and media Bright Star Productions will additionally be a fascinating foray into the fast paced oftentimes dirty world behind the glitz and glamour A Secret Beat feels true to its characters when it balances a refusal to pan the entire industry with a willingness to expose its dirty bits London with its cosmopolitan outlook and colourful culture is naturally the perfect location for this venture into showbizThere's a lot going on in A Secret Beat from the lighthearted banter to the much heavier realisations about ethics independence and friendship Recommended to anyone who wants a fun novel infused with pop culture and music that also incorporates a great deal of relevant YANA themesThanks to Little Brown Book Group UK and NetGalley for providing a review copy of this book All opinions represented remain my ownMy Blog
