The game continues…

The second book in Michelle Betham’s seductively wicked bonkbuster.

Delving into the lives of those who live and work within the so-called Beautiful Game, ‘Extra Time’ is a story of sex, secrets and the true cost of fame.

Footballer’s Wives meets Jackie Collins in this sizzling scorcher of a summer read!

Extra Time is the direct sequel to Striker (reviewed yesterday). It continues a few months after Striker leaves off and as a result I don't want to say much as it may spoil the plot of the first book.  I do though believe this could be read as a standalone, as there is enough of the background info in it, I am far too involved with the story at this point, to review this as anything apart from a continuation.

It looks initially as Amber is settling into her happy ever after. However things are never what they seem. Her career is going from strength to strength, and she is becoming famous in her own right. 

However she has all these sexy men in her life, and it seems like her heart, and her head can never agree on what they want. It also seems like any time she has a problem in her life, she runs and turns into the arms, and bed, or whichever of her male admirers she is nearest to at the time. 

Amber in some respects seems to come across as a bit of  sex maniac. She seems to use it to deal with every situation she finds herself in, even when she knows it could be making her crazy life, even more insane! 

All your favourite characters from Striker are back, Ryan, Jim, Gary, Debbie and Ronnie, as well as a whole host of new characters, including a new striker for a Newcastle Red Star's local rivals, who is connected to someone we know well.

There is significantly less on the pitch, or even training ground action in this second book, but we do get to hear snippets of how the club is doing. 

Extra Time, has more secrets and intrigue than ever before, and I am still finding myself reeling at some of the things that get uncovered, and I can't help but think there are even more hidden depths to these characters to be discovered in Final Score, which I can't wait to read. 

Extra Time is a raunchy read, that continues what Striker started, which is a fabulous story about the glamorous lives of footballers. 

Don't forget to enter my giveaway of Striker that was posted yesterday, and stay tuned because later today, I will be posting my review of Final Score.
