Title: Do You Do Extras
Author: Nikki Ashton
I had the pleasure of meeting Nikki at a book signing last year and came away with a couple of books that had caught my eye, despite having not read them. Well, I finally got round to reading this one and I can’t believe I waited so long!
There are some absolutely hilarious, completely laugh out loud and frighten the dog moments in this book. Interspersed beautifully throughout some quite heavy moments.
There are some amazing side characters in this book! Marcia; the over the top manager. She reminds me of Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. And Barnaby, Beth and Poppy, the guiding hands throughout. All played amazing roles!
I love that Phoebe just doesn’t give a toss, she’s the typical northern bird in some ways. Shes only half bothered that he’s the star, she’s still not gonna take any rubbish off him. She speaks first and then thinks after, the d!ck moment haha and has absolutely no filter. Shes great!
D!ck, as he is affectionately known, was also fab. Despite being a bit of a grumpuss at first I quickly warmed to his quirky way and with Barnaby there to temper him it was a match made in heaven.
What a great story!
