Publisher's Summary

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. 

The Extra is a stand-alone romance novel with PG-13 rated content, no cliffhanger, and a swoon-worthy happily-ever-after.

Cute Story

I like stories that are different and end in a good way. The ending of this book evolved and kept me guessing. It did not just have a big rushed drop off.

Fun Story

This was a fun story with lots of young angst. I loved the whole idea of them trying to figure out their life path and what they were going to do with their future.

burn so slow it bomb

I only finished this story because I like to start what I finish. it had some promise but I just couldn't get past how the characters would over react to some situation with out the build up and the lack of actually chemistry. some back stories took an overwhelming amount of time to build on that really the plot could of done with out. pass on this book.

just ok

just ok didn't love the narrator. One of the story lines is very serious, I do not think they handled it realistically or with much sensitivity.

honest to god, i laughed out loud

Such a good story! I thought the entire book was incredibly charming, fun dialogue and relatable characters. I truly did laugh out loud multiple times, literally put my face in my hand at the cringe-worthy antics,and enjoyed every second of this story. The narrator does a lovely job, as well.
