She might have scored a celebrity footballer, but the game isn’t over yet …
Rebecca Dunning should be blissfully happy – after a whirlwind weekend, she and top footballer Alex Heath are still going strong. But as the murkier side of the celebrity lifestyle reveals itself, so does the 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?

Love story set in the world of premier football - loved it
This is a novel about Rebecca and Alex trying to keep their relationship together whilst dealing with the media spotlight from Alex being a top footballer. You really get to know about these two characters, their personalities and weaknesses, as well as their closet friends and family. I really enjoyed being drawn into their world, which seems so different to other people’s world, yet they still have to deal with our issues of trust, ex partners and “true” friends. This is a sequel - I hadn’t read the first novel (but want to now!) which really didn’t matter as you grasp what had previously happened very quickly. A lovely relaxing read which I really enjoyed and recommend. Love of football optional!
A rollercoaster of emotions
Relationships must be built on trust, without it they are doomed. When you both have trust issues from your previous relationships, it can be hard to trust anyone, let alone your other half. Couple that with, the un-glamorous side of celebrity, with its fake news, hearsay, and gossip, just about anyone would lose their mind to doubt.
I loved this book, I couldn’t put it down until I had finished it. It drew me in as I was carried along on the emotional rollercoaster of Rebecca and Alex Heaths continuing relationship, will they or won’t they make it?
Absorbing and well written
Although this is book two it's not essential to read book one, As Weekends Go, to fully understand and enjoy this book. But it would be a shame to miss when Rebecca and Alex first meet.
After Rebecca's divorce from her controlling husband, she is finally free to start a relationship with Alex, a celebrated footballer. When Rebecca moves from London to York to live with Alex, she finds life difficult adapting to her new lifestyle being one half of a famous couple. The media are constantly watching and criticising. Some of the WAGs are so jealous and insecure that they invent malicious lies about her and Alex and post them on social media.
With Alex's love she begins to regain her confidence, only to have her ex-husband appear attempting to sabotage her new relationship.
An insight into a celebrity's life, showing the downside of fame with jealousy, envy and intrigue plus unsavoury types who claim friendship for personal gain.
