5* Review: Extra Time – Michelle Betham – Striker Series#2



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.

My Review

 ‘Extra Time’ the second book in the Striker trilogy is a fabulous, heartbreaking, sexy read about the players in the beautiful game and those who surround them.

Amber and Jim, newly married appear idyllically happily but Jim is still keeping secrets from his new wife which is bound to have consequences. Ryan newly recovered from rehab can’t forget Amber even though she has moved on and then there’s Ronnie, Amber’s best friend who is more than willing to offer his beautiful friend his undivided attention.
Amber’s life becomes an emotional battlefield, which leads to lots of sexy encounters and plenty of angst. ‘Extra Time’ is well paced and the characters are so vibrant, it’s difficult to put down. I couldn’t wait to see what Amber would do next. There are further insights in to Jim’s mysterious character but he remains an enigma. Revelations about his past life leave some interesting clues for what is to come next. Ryan’s character develops in a satisfying way as he attempts to avoid a repeat of his previous disastrous behaviour and starts to realise what he really wants from life. There is also an interesting new character who threatens the status quo. Great supporting characters and some interesting football details give this story its authenticity. I look forward to ‘Final Score’ the last book in the trilogy.
