Striker is full of passion and raw emotion that's hard to ignore. Well paced with an interesting plot and compelling characters whether football is your thing or not this book is definitely worth a read.

In her late thirties Amber is a successful sports reporter on a local television news programme. Amber's cool and calm exterior hides a maelstrom of pain and confusion. She avoids relationships unable to forget her first love. When her local team signs a high profile football stud she reluctantly agrees to interview him. It's lust at first sight for Amber and Ryan who is over ten years her junior but Amber doesn't date footballers and Ryan is talented but lacking in insight. He can have any woman he wants so why should he chase someone who doesn't want to play?

Add Jim into the mix, a former football star and now a celebrity football manager signed by the local club to help them win the premiership. Jim and Amber have a complicated secret history which threatens to wreck both their careers. Under his slick exterior there is a sinister quality to Jim which is disturbing.

Tempted by these polar opposites who should Amber choose or can she have her cake and eat it? Well she can try.

Finally there's Ronnie her best friend who is content to remain on the sidelines and offer tea and sympathy but still waters run deep.
Striker offers glimpses of beautiful people and sizzling sex against an exciting background of premiership football. Find out what happens when people start to believe their own hype. I look forward to the next book in the series.

I received a copy of this book from HarperImpulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
