Five years after a serial dater (and former CIA agent) breaks up with his actress girlfriend, they both end up working on the same movie set - and their bickering quickly rekindles their fiery passion.
Behind Michael Raney’s good looks lies a string of ex-girlfriends…and a web of secrets. A former CIA agent, stunt coordinator, and one of the dashing, sexy members of Thrillseekers Anonymous, Michael earned the nickname Extreme Bachelor after dating and dumping countless women over the years. But there’s one woman he can’t forget: actress Leah Klein.
Still devastated that Michael dumped her - especially since she thought a marriage proposal was on his lips - former Broadway star Leah almost faints when she sees him coordinating the stunts on the set of her first movie. This film was supposed to be her big break, not another heartbreak.
The more Michael and Leah work together, the more they remember their sensual past. Could the Extreme Bachelor finally be willing to renounce his title? Or will the beautiful women of Hollywood - and the scandalous secrets of his past - steal him away from Leah again?

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I'm enjoying Julia London's venture into the Contemporary Romance scene and this series is a nice change.
Michael (much more than just a handsome playboy) gets cold feet after his long. happy and loving relationship with Leah when it gets too serious so he unceremoniously dumps her but there's secrets in his life that she doesn't know about. Leah is quite devastated and it ruins her life for quite a while. Zoom ahead 5 years, he's now part of the Thrill Seekers Anonymous Group and they meet again, have to work together and he tells her everything including the fact that he's never gotten over her. But she's in a different place in her life now so can she emotionally afford to let him in or let him go.
A nice up and down love story with a few twists, a kidnapping, romantic, sad, funny, sexy, great characters but, above all, it was an entertaining and very enjoyable story.
Worth a credit? Definitely..... and I'm happily about to download Book 3 now.
I really liked this pair and was rooting for them all they way. Despite them both being beautiful their fears were understandable and their missed cues made sense. It was fun, light reading with some touching parts. The subplot from Michael's past gave the book more interest and kept the momentum going.
I really "got" each of the two main characters -- like them very much.
Renee Raudman's style has grown on me with this book. Her male Texas drawl was irritating in the first book due to making the handsome studly lead character sound like an old man. This main male character doesn't have an accent which she did better. I liked how she voiced Leah, the heroine.
The main final scene at the producer's house between Michael and Leah. Wow. The scene between the two of them in Michael's loft apartment was pretty darn hot, but I wondered how realistic it could be when they haven't been together in over five years.
I enjoyed this story, it had twist and turns. It wasn't a straightline to anywhere. It seemed long but I found it more believable than most stories that move fast but we like them.
It had good characters, it had drama...I much preferred this writing. I'm not explaining it well. It's good, it's different than many of the books out there right now. She is definitely an author you can appreciate. Great narrator.
Better story, better writing, better narration. This was trash.
Couldn't even listen to more than a few minutes of this book. It was that bad - I don't mind a fun light read, but this was just garbage.
