4 stars – Contemporary Romance

This is a cute, entertaining, funny contemporary romance with a reunited lovers theme.

Michael Raney is an ex-CIA agent turned extreme sports enthusiast/stunt coordinator working for an adventure service called Thrillseekers Anonymous who finds himself face to face with his ex-girlfriend while working on the movie set for “War of the Soccer Moms” in LA. Michael hasn’t been able to stop thinking about Leah Klein, the love of his life whom he broke up with five years

Would've given this book 4 stars b/c of the good writing, pacing, wit, & sensuality. BUT I didn't like the hero & heroine. Michael is portrayed as an externally confident but internally insecure guy who is supposedly so in love with Leah, remembers everything about her, and has thought about her everyday in their 5 years separation yet he flirts with & has sex with multiple women globally. Yeeeaah...Leah, on the otherhand, is portrayed as a vapid, shallow, & emotionally weak woma ...more

Sort of up in the air aout this one...Maybe if it'd been longer and delved more deeply into the characters psyches (beyond the h's insecurities) I'd be more decided in my opnion.


My major isue is that I don't like Slutty Hero's. And this hero is slutty. Even while fighting (and I use that term loosley as he didn't do a lot of fighting to keep her) he's constantly going off with other women...Albeit not romantically but still! How can the heroine not feel insecure if everytime she turns around he

Why did I read this book? I don't especially remember liking the first one in the series. This one wasn't much better. Michael Raney dumped his girlfriend Leah Klein because he didn't think that their relationship meshed well with his career in the CIA. The dumping shut Leah down for moths and even five years later, her career as an actress hasn't recovered. But she finally got a part in a major motion picture... which Michael's extreme sports company is doing the stunt effects for. When the two ...more

This author did a great job of convincing me this couple should NOT be together and never made me change my mind.

That is not romance at all. Bad hero and poor and gullible girl.

I really enjoy reading Julia London's books. This is the second book about extreme sports and the guys that run TA (Thrillseekers Anonymous). Michael Raney would not commit to any one woman because he really liked them all but when he met Leah Klein he met his match. He left her five years ago but when he ran into her again, he knew that he had made a mistake but could he convince her. Could he change her mind about him or was it a losing battle.

This book had an awesome ending that gave you hope

Selesai buku ke 2 seri ini dan bakal berlanjut ke buku 1 nya yg jg udah setengah jalan. Baca seri ini emang reverse, dr buku 3 dl baru bk 2 dan diakhiri dgn ngelarin bk 1. Agak aneh, tp gpp deh *sigh*

Jujur, lebih suka buky 3 nya, Jack dan Ausrey drpd buku ini, ttg Michael dan Leah. Lucu sih, terutama ketika Michael mengaku kalo dia dl agen CIA dan jd bahan ledekan abis2an setelah itu. Ngakak juga pas bagian Leah disandera si teroris ganteng Juan Carlo, tp mereka malah sibuk membahas perasaan mrk

Extreme Bachelor is the second book in Julia London’s Thrillseeker’s Anonymous series. Thrillseekers Anonymous (TA) is a members-only adventure service that caters to the rich and famous. As a stunt coordinator, extreme sport enthusiast, co-owner of Thrillseekers Anonymous and THE extreme bachelor, Michael Raney doesn’t miss his life as a CIA operative. However, a television commercial reminds him of the woman he gave up for that life. When he arrives on the set of the latest TA movie production ...more

This book was just okay for me.

For starters, I listened to the audiobook. The problem with audiobooks is that the narrator can make or break a book and this narrator just didn't work for me. The dialog was overly dramatic at times and the voices used for the male characters were unrealistic with campy southern or east coast accents. Especially the Spanish character that sounded French. I tried not to let this ruin the story for me.

As for the story itself, it's one of those books where you know

Awal bab hingga pertengahan buku ini lumayan enak utk dibaca, karakternya kesannya lucu n seru. Tapi dari pertengahan hingga akhir buku ini berhasil membuat mood gw terjun bebas. Boring bgt baca ttg keluhan2 Leah betapa dia tidak percaya terhadap Michael krn pernah nyakitin n ninggalin dia dimasa lalu n cemburu abis saking byknya mantan Michael yg bertebaran disekeliling mereka hingga dia selalu mengeluh dan menyalahkan Michael, namun tetep ga bisa nolak rayuan Michael walo cuma dipandang or dir ...more

3.5 stars. Untuk novel ini.. Novel ini ringan, enak dibaca dan lumayan menghibur..
Bagaimana rasanya jika kita mengalami percintaan yang paling gress, dan merasa bakal dilamar setelah 9 blln berpacaran karena chemistry yg sangat cocok satu samaa lain, namun ternyata malaah diputusin.
Itulah Yg terjadi dengan Leah Klein ia diputuskan saama pacarnya Michael dan Leah hancur habis2an, karirnya yg sedang tinggi2nya sebgai bintang broadway harus kandas dan ia turun menjadi bintang iklan obat pencahar.

I love it when I discover an author and find out that she has written many books! This happened when I won "One More Night" by Julia London on Good Reads. "One More Night" is book 2 in London's 3 Thrillseekers Anonoymous series. This book hooked me from the very beginning. I liked the main characters and the fact that they were trying their best to find happiness in their lives. I had a hard time putting this book down, and when it was over, I wanted more! I will definitely check out the other 2 ...more

Wahhh... akhirnya selesai juga baca ini novel. Berhubung ini novel terjemahan, jadi bahasanya agak sulit dimengerti (halahh... anggap saja saya yang agak lemot). Sebenarnya pertama kali membaca novel ini, saya kurang tertarik karena deskripsi tentang Broadway yang belum bisa saya bayangkan (hueee... saya kan memang belum pernah lihat yang aslinya). Tapi, saya paksakan untuk terus dan akhirnya keterusan karena ternyata cerita yang menarik (meskipun ceritanya sudah pasaran). Pembukaan yang seksi m ...more

Michael and Leah had a tough road finding love didn't leave them during the five years they were apart. Michael's character was great. CIA agent to Thrillseekers. Second book in the series and I enjoyed it very much.
Samantha
This book is just ok. This book has big plot holes. You wonder how things happened and why. Ms. London doesn't really develop the characters fully. I really didn't care if they lived or died. I thought she would tell us a little more about how they got close the first time they were together. If she wanted it to be about the movie then make it about the movie. If she wanted it to be about their past and their possible future together then make it about that because it's obvious Ms. London can't ...more

I enjoyed this one but found the story silly at some points. The overall second chance story is good put some of the secondary story lines not so much.

Love Julia and Clay! I told my husband that his next gift to me better be a long strand of pearls!! :)

Suka sebenarnya ama story nya.. tp kelakuan 2 tokoh utama nya itu ngeselin bgt,, super-super galau.. heuh,,cape liat kelakuan michael yg notabene udah cinta mati sama leah kelakuan nya kayak remaja baru puber, flirt sana-sini sama cewe lain, walaupun kayaknya michael cuma bersikap sopan tp ga perlu kali panggil 'baby' segala..
wajar aja leah cemburu terus sama michael dgn kelakuan michael yg kayak gitu. harusnya si leah tegas sama michael, bilang aja ga suka dgn kelakuan michael. bukannya diem,tr

I read the eBook version of this book. It is a well written, read in an afternoon kinda book. This is the second book in the Thrillseekers Anonymous series.

But "extreme sports" takes on a whole new meaning for former CIA operative Michael Raney. Hollywood's most notorious bachelor will have to mend his ways and risk it all for the one who got away.

It was a great read! I love the way Michael tried to win Leah's heart back. He was so sincere though sometimes what he said was a bit greasy. On the other hand, Leah was a fun woman until she found Michael with his ex-date. He didn't cheat her, but she couldn't stand the fact that there were a lot of women who were Michael's ex. And from that, Michael's hard work began.

Michael ketemu lg sama Leah, mantannya, di lokasi syuting war of the soccer moms, eh Michael masih suka sama Leah, jadi dia bilang klo dulu dia ninggalin Leah karena dia secret agent, abis itu besoknya semua orang yg ikutan syuting pada ngeledekin Michael mulai dari 007, austin powers, man of mystery hahahhaa lucu banget pas bagian ini...
