Can a chance encounter help two lost souls find love?

Kit Macken is used to not being wanted. Slightly strange and a little odd, Kit believes he’s more likely to find gold than someone who loves him. Until a chance encounter brings him face to face with a man who knows what it’s like to suddenly be alone; footballer, Hugo Serin.

Fresh off a painful divorce and an even more painful broken leg, Hugo feels like he’s lost everything. Isolated and drifting, Hugo isn’t expecting a rom-com style meet-cute any time soon. But he hadn’t counted on meeting Kit, who might just be the walking ray of sunshine Hugo needs to break through the clouds surrounding him.

When a freak accident leaves Kit’s house uninhabitable, Hugo opens his home, and his heart, to the man whose charming eccentricity makes him feel things he’d long forgotten. All he has to do now is convince Kit he’s worthy of love, just the way he is.

Extra Time is a 77,000-word contemporary gay romance featuring a clueless protagonist, Scottish adventures, an overbearing best friend and a plan to capture Nessie. It is book two in the Off the Pitch series and can be read as a stand alone.

My review: 

I wanted to read this book since I saw the cover, because HELLO long hair! And after I found out that one of the MC is demisexual and the other is pansexual, I was really excited to read the story. 

It was everything I needed and more. Kit's demisexuality was so well written and the whole romance around it was perfect. Kit is the sweetest and most precious character ever. 

I loved the writing style, the plot, the characters, but the best thing is still how the author told the demisexuality. It was more than perfect. 

Loved the slow burn, the falling in love part are always the best in romances and I love cute and real stories like this. 

Since this is the second in the series, we could see other characters from the first book and from the third too, and I'm really curious about the other's story too. Christian and David looks really interesting, I loved them in this story, their friendship with Kit was adorable. 

Really loved this book and highly recommend it!
