The Extra

The Extra The Extra by Megan Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Gabby Mays wishes she had her future figured out, like her gorgeous roommate Anna-Marie, who has just landed a role on the hit soap opera Passion Medical. Gabby would give anything to find a career she's half as passionate about as Anna-Marie is about acting—and a love life that isn't comprised of nights with a party-sized bag of Doritos and her Netflix account.

When Gabby becomes a recurring extra on Passion Medical, she finds a job she's surprisingly great at. Even better, her old crush and ex-boss—the sexy, sweet Will Bowen—is writing the scripts, allowing Gabby lots of quality flirting time at the craft services table. 

But between feuding divas, fake Emmys, and Gabby's growing concern that Will might not see her as anything more than a friend, her life on set is quickly becoming a drama worthy of the soaps.

Book Review

This second chance romance was a quick fun read. Imagine if your life mirrored All My Children or Knots Landing. Yeah, I just aged myself. Well, that is what is going on with this cute story.
Gabby, who has no idea what she wants to do with herself, and eventually lands a job as an extra. A job where she bumps into her crush. Amid the bed-hopping, amnesia, and diva behavior is a cute romance delivered with sarcastic humor, a fun supporting cast, and few twists.
If you enjoy today's reality tv dramedies, you will enjoy this read. It is a solid 3.5 that I rounded up to a 4.
