An eagerly anticipated sequel to As Weekends Go!
I read this in 3 parts over a few days, because I had to sleep, work and home school in between too!
Rebecca Dunning should be blissfully happy – after a whirlwind weekend, she and top footballer Alex Heath are still going strong. She moves into his world and the murkier side of the celebrity lifestyle starts to reveal itself, then, so does her creeping doubt.
Rebecca finds herself isolated in the fake, flashy world of toxic WAG cliques and ruthless reporters, and when a mysterious online admirer follows Alex’s every move, she struggles to cope. Can she keep playing the media game for the man she loves, or will she have to admit defeat?
Jan has not disappointed with this next episode of Rebecca and Alex’s relationship. Readers are whisked along with warmth and panache feeling that the characters are within your own friends circle.
Rebecca is a modern woman who is strong and determined to live her life with empathy and kindness but is no push over. I love that Jan has moved Rebecca on from betrayed wife perceived as naive, to strong, determined but even handed and supportive friend and ally.
Alex the smouldering striker and does not disappoint in the handsome and irresistible stakes! Rebecca is indeed a lucky lady. I must admit I wasn’t too struck by Alex’s male friend in the first book, but I am happy to report that Jan has rather endeared him to me in this one.
I spent a whole day reading to finish this, and I do not feel guilty at all. A superb sequel and very hard to put down without finishing. I am very much hoping there’s a third in the series being conjured up by Jan!
