REBEL (Renegades #2) by SKYE JORDAN

rebel

SYNOPSIS

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.

Jenny:  I was dying to meet up with Wes and Rubi after becoming acquainted with them in Reckless.  Argghh Wes..Jax…Wes…Jax..I love both these guys for different reasons and I can’t choose one over the other! Well, what’s not to love about these sexy, hot stunt men with hearts of gold who are demons between the sheets, right??  So yeah…don’t ask me to choose. Not gonna happen!

“I’m so fucking hungry for you.”

I’m kind of in love with Skye Jordan’s stories and characters. In Rebel she provided the right amount of passion, humour, emotion and drama and the sex (with a little kink) and it was OFF THE CHARTS HOT! Dare I say chocolate ice cream will take on a whole new visual from now on Gitte? Wowsers! Pass the whipped cream!

Gitte: I’m loving this series! Stunt men….phwoarrrr!!! Yeah who could choose between Jax and Wes? Not me that’s for sure. This series is what I like to call addictive sexy indulgence reading. It’s got hot passionate alpha males with such big hearts and HUGE passionate appetites. The writing is flawless and enticing providing many many swoon worthy heat inducing moments as well as emotion and laughter.

‘This was not delirium. This was fucking euphoria.’

Hahahaha Jenny, I remember texting you saying I’m trying not to think about hygiene when the whole body melting ice cream scene popped up (pun intended)!

Jenny:  Haha! You definitely had me intrigued with that text message! Now, I did sympathise with Rubi and how her past had contributed to her insecurities. This lady didn’t give her heart or trust easily.  As I say, I did understand her hesitation in taking the leap Wes desperately wanted her to take because she was certainly a vulnerable character, but in the same instance her indecision tended  grate on me and felt it became a little too repetitive. I found myself becoming frustrated and a little irritated the longer it dragged on.

“It’s hard to trust after a lifetime of extremes.”

Wes….I loved, and I mean LOVED this confident, beautiful, generous and sexy man! Add in that Southern country charm, that air of danger and ‘other’ certain skills, and yeah…this guy could melt an igloo! He was certainly tenacious yet so patient in regards to Rubi who was strong willed and took a LOT of convincing!

“Stay, Rubi. Let me hold you tonight.”

 I’m really enjoying this series and can’t wait to get stuck into Ricochet after getting a glimpse of Ryker in Rebel! Yummmm!

Gitte: Wes was perfection. What a man; I can’t actually fault anything about his character. I fell in love….BIG love. Heart of pure gold and a body and passion that had me wanting to visit the freezer. And….you all know me by now…HIS ACCENT…melted my knickers off!!!! He had me at sexy Southern drawl!!!

“You’re my favourite.”

Now, Rubi…she was my only niggling issue with this story. I loved her confidence, self-awareness and intelligence. She had a craptastic past that consequently emotionally scarred her, understandably so really. However, her back and forth – will I won’t I got annoying and repetitive. This behaviour was magnified by how completely good hearted and understanding Wes was. Her uncertainty and refusal lasted too long in my opinion and good thing Wes had the patience of a saint!

“My very own rebel.”        “I’ll be anything you want….as long as I’m yours.”

Overall I really did enjoy this story and I can’t wait for Ricochet and Ryker! This series is an automatic one-click for me, bring it on!

RECKLESS (A Renegade Novel #1) by SKYE JORDAN

reckless

SYNOPSIS

A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.

Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too.

I bloody LOVED this book!  It was exactly what I needed at the time; I read it in one sitting and wow! I have to say……does this author have a way of writing a sex scene! I was sourcing demisters for my Kindle because it was definitely getting steamed up!  Wowsers!!

“But right now, you’re a little too tempting for my blood.”

It was hot! I adored all the characters especially Jax and Lexi. These two wooed me and I was completely smitten with both of them. Hearing from both characters was a great addition and I was with them from start to finish, cheering them on and relishing every  steamy moment I spent with them.

The way the author initiated the conversation and developed the relationship between Jax and Lexi was so entertaining!  It was hot, funny and sweet, the execution of the “meeting” between Lexi and Jax was combustible and these two had heat in spades!

“I think,” He murmured, “you were thinking the same thing I’ve been thinking for the last ten hours. How badly we want the other to ease this need that’s grown between us.”

Where to start with Jaxon “swoooon’ Chamberlin?  Jax, the hotter than hell, rugged, tattooed, sexy and very, very sensual stuntman knocked me off my feet.  Wow! This guy oozed sex, sin and sensuality from every pore.  All I can picture is this well built, ridiculously sexy guy in biker boots and a Brutale MC jacket looking bloody DIVINE! Hmmm…..just give me a moment to recover here!

JAX‘Sorry. You have me a little frenzied. The gist of that is I’m all about pleasure. I’m not into anything bizarre or dark. No fetishes or crazy piercings. I don’t know if this will be a benefit or a drawback to you, but I just really love wickedly hot sex with a woman who loves wickedly hot sex.’

GULP! You had me at frenzied!!  After falling for a string of women who all want something from Jax and his connections, who see Jax as an opportunity to further careers,  Jax starts to seriously take stock of his life. He ponders where he’s at, where he’s going and just why he always seems to choose the wrong type of women and wonders if he will ever meet the ‘real deal’ in an town where everyone wants something from everyone.

“As far as I’m concerned, people are people, and their value stems from their character, not their popularity or notoriety.”

Enter Lexi. She’s clueless as to who Jax is.  She too has had her share of being burnt by people out to exploit her. She’s beautiful, confident, successful and sexy.  Lexi lives an ordered life and meeting the spontaneous Jax upends her.

“She was delicious. Completely, radically luscious. And he wanted more. More than just sex, more than just tonight…..”

Lexi has no idea the level of success and respect Jax has earned in Hollywood. Lexi only sees Jax, the man and is conflicted on how good he makes her feel yet how he isn’t right for her and her future.  But this ruggedly handsome, warm, kind extremely hot stuntman who ignites her in a way no man has ever done and she can’t get enough of him.  Can’t say I blame her – they’d be no having second thoughts as far as this man is concerned.

“Aren’t we a couple of fucked-up messes?”

Talk about chemistry!! Holy hotness, pass me the fan! The build-up just about caused me to combust, the flirting was funny and hot……and I know I’ve said it before but the sex scenes were as hot as hades. Yep! Hot!!!

“No, not yet. Hearing you ache for it turns me on.”

I can’t say enough how much I loved this book and the relationship between not only Jax and Lexi but also the contribution of the secondary characters as well.  I can’t wait to hear more about Wes and Rubi, I think I’m going to definitely need to source those Kindle demisters for those two!

But Reckless was more than just a hot romp. The romance between Jax and Lexi melted my heart. In fact, the only reason this wasn’t a 5 star for me was because I wanted more.  I would have loved to have spent more time and explored these characters further.

“Yes, I want to keep you more than I want to breathe.”

Watching them grow, facing their fears and failings, learning to trust and realising what was important in life and grabbing it with both hands and witnessing them bring out the the best in each other  absolutely captivated me. Yep, Reckless was such a fun escape, I couldn’t put it down, I had a HUGE smile on my face and a glow in my heart when I finished it and I’m so ready for more of these hot Renegade men! Bring it on!
