Leah Kleinschmidt was in love with Michael Raney, a financier, for almost a year when they lived in New York. Leah had just finished as a smashing success on Broadway and had high hopes for their future together. But she did not really know that Michael was CIA and his entire background a lie ... not even when he suddenly dumped her and disappeared with no good reason.
Five years later:
Leah "Klein" has moved to LA in hopes of picking up the pieces of her life. She had grieved so badly that even her agent had quit calling her. The time has come to snap out of it and get on with her life. In LA she snags a couple of commercials but could find nothing big. Her agent kept telling Leah to go for character roles. Finally, Leah takes the advice and lands a part in the motion picture "War of the Soccer Moms". Leah and about nineteen other women must endure a three week boot camp to toughen up and learn team work for their war in the film, camouflage, weapons, and all. The last thing Leah expects is to see Michael there as one of the stunt coordinators.
Michael has never been able to forget Leah. She is the only woman he has actually regretted having to leave. Now departed from the CIA, Michael spends a lot of time with his buddies at Thrillseekers Anonymous "T.A." The men are having a difficult time getting the women ready for the stunts they will have to pull off during the film. Michael has no idea Leah is part of the movie until he sets eyes on her. Here is his second chance! The problem is that a few of his other ditched girlfriends are also there. If he manages to somehow get Leah to listen to him, Michael will have to admit that everything she knows of him is a lie. But what woman would really believe a line so cheesy as "I was a spy?"
*** A good chunk of the story is focused on the two main characters, as it should be. Danger does not begin to rear its head until late into the story. Toward the middle things began to get too slow. Leah is not a person/character I could ever come to really like. Yet the author kept my attention by adding characters from the previous novel (The Wedding Survivor). Leah and Lucy swap some humorous emails which made things a bit more believable for me. All-in-all, this read is fun, charming at times, and well worth your money. ***

I actually really enjoyed this book. Humour, romance and fun characters. I would recommend this. I am already reading the sequel.

Cannot remember much about it and that says a lot. Did not keep me interested enough to buy any more of this writer's books.
