Great read. I had trouble putting it down. Kinda of a different kind of story with a few surprises in it. I'm looking forward to reading more of London's books.
There's something really unique about Julia Londn's writing; she avoids the fluff and delves as deeply as she can into her character's emotions and psyches- she really makes you care about them. "Extreme Bachelor" is no exception. Leah was dumped by Michael (the love of her life) five years previous to the action of the novel. The twp meet again on a movie set. Sparks fly, criminals appear, a movie gets made and Leah and Michael must confront their past and their current feelings. Recommended.
I rarely give 5 stars, but I so enjoyed this book and the style of writing. Easy, bit trite story line. Gorgeous girl actor meets hunk business man who is really CIA. He can't committ and suddenly dumps her. She has a complete breakdown, and the story begins 5 years later. It is a Cinderella story after all. It is a book which has some unforeseen plot twists, and some very honest writing. In the end, the reader feels REAL good. I love ending a book, wanting to go hug my husband, don't you?
This is the sequel to The Wedding Survivor. Sexy and sassy as usual. Love Julia London
The book was all right but I found it dragged quite a bit. I won't be reading more of this series. I didn't find that the characters had much depth.
Next in the Thrillseekers Anonymous line. I like a book where the male character can admit he was wrong and try to make amends.
Highly enjoyable read. I liked it even more than the first in the series:)
A fun read with a sassy leading lady and a hunky leading man!
I really enjoyed reading this book.
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 issue 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's in deep conversation or laughing with another woman? and then He reaches the conclusion that they can't be together remarkably easily! Seriously? He gives up? What kind of Romance hero does that?
(and hey spoiler here: when the h at the end of the book decides she wants to make a go of it with the Hero, what dos she find? Oh yes, he's with yet another one! Seriously?)
And the heroine... Yeah she's a priss. Pretty much sterotypical Hollywood. and while Her insecurities were understandable, her attraction to the Hero not so much.
There's also a whole bunch of minor characters who didn't add a whole to the sotry.
The story though was well told, and I do think JL's a decent if not better writer then most, and while I didn't like her characters, they were well drawn . This just wan't my cuppa.
