Rebel, the second story of the Renegades (the super-hot and sexy stunt men led by Jax Chamberlin) is as Hot and delicious as you can imagine. Rebel brings together Wes Lawson and Rubi Russo, two close friends with the potential for much more. But one is afraid to take the next step, while the other is raring to go.

Rubi has been working with the Renegades to develop computer applications for their stunts. Over the last few months she has gotten closer to the team, especially Wes. They have developed a really great friendship, really becoming best friends. Because of her horrible relationship with her father she does have relationships with guys. She prefers to have one night with them. Wes is the one guy that she is really tempted to break her no dating rule. Rubi knows things will be different with Wes and she is scared of losing his friendship.

Wes is one of the stunt men for the renegades and really Jax’s right hand man. He has been crushing on Rubi since he spied her dropping Lexi at the airport months ago. He knows that their chemistry will be explosive and wants a relationship with her. Aware of her reluctance to have a relationship with him, he agrees to her demands though he hopes to get her to change her mind.

“I’m sorry, baby. It’s just who I am. I love everything you hide and everything you don’t. I just…love you.”

Wes and Rubi as a couple balance each other out, they play to each others strengths and weakness. In addition to that they are scorching HOT in and out of bed!  Rubi is a multidimensional character. She is a successful model turned computer program. And while Rubi is a genuinely nice person that is fiercely loyal to her friends she doesn’t show many people her soft underside. Except Wes…who sees so much in Rubi.  Like Rubi, Wes has many layers as well…stunt man, engineer, country boy and a loyal family man. All this comes together in a really sexy package.

I absolutely LOVED Rebel. There are so many great moments in the story I could just keep writing about it. It is definitely  a must read for anyone that wants a really heartwarming story. Jax and Lexi are in the story as well and it was great to see how their relationship is progressing. Plus the addition of the other memebrs from the Renegades make for some very funny parts. I can’t wait for the next chapter in the Renegades story.

From the Author:

Sassy, smart, and sexy, former supermodel-turned-tech guru Rubi Russo has it all—looks, money, confidence and freedom. Her life is a whirlwind of fast cars and fleeting affairs—and she likes it that way. With a past like Rubi’s, forever isn’t part of her vocabulary. So when studly Renegade stuntman Wes Lawson wants to take their friendship to the next level, she’s all out.

Raised a simple country-boy, Wes knows the brazen Rubi isn’t his type. But after spending time with her, he discovers she’s everything he’s ever wanted in a woman. To win her wild rebel heart, he’ll have to prove he sees behind her smokescreen to all the goodness she tries to hide. Then it’s just a matter of crushing her fears, shattering her barriers, and convincing her that loving him is everything she’s been missing in her life, too. Piece of cake.

Reckless, A Renegades Novel by Skye Jordan

cover35429-medium

 

Reckless is a delightful story about two people who aren’t looking for love but find it in a really unique way. It is the most original meeting of a couple that I have read in a long time!  Lexi LaCroix spies Jax Chamberlin at the airport, where they are both catching a flight to NY. She is immediately intrigued by him and wants to get to know him. Lexi starts chatting him up by texting him…and she goes about it in a very cool way!!

Jax is the owner of Renegades, which supplies movies with stuntmen. Jax is done with women, he is tired of getting screwed  over by them (which WOW, happens often). He doesn’t want anything to do with them. But he can’t help notice a beautiful woman at the airport when he gets dropped off. While he is waiting for his flight, he begins to get text messages from Lexi. Jax is intrigued that someone starts texting him at the airport. Texting between them become hot  and pretty quickly. They agree to meet at the hotel…in the dark…so they can satisfy their need for each other. Once they leave NYC they both realize that they can’t stop thinking of each other.

Lexi is a wedding dress designer for the rich and famous in LA. She has dreams of taking her couture wedding line to the masses. She is overworked and stressed out. While trying to make a success of her business she has not put much effort into her personal life. She wants Jax desperately but doesn’t see how a stuntman in leathers and dirty boots can fit in to the couture business.

I was so glad that Lexi finally got her stuff together and went after Jax. I can totally understand her need to be successful…but I felt she was would have thrown away something beautiful.

Jax is a great character. He is strong, determined and a really great guy. He is also super HOT!  I loved that he was willing to give Lexi what she needed to be successful in her business even if it hurt him in the process. Lexi realizes that she needs Jax more than she needs her dress line sold at high end boutiques. Together Jax and Lexi are beyond hot…I want to say combustible.

The ending was one of the best that I have read! I truly feel that Reckless is one of the best books I have read this year. It’s got an amazing story-line with two great characters. It is a must read for anyone that wants a good hot romance.  I can’t wait for the next Renegades story…I hope it’s Wes’ story or maybe Rubi.
