Renegades Series- Book 3
After a tragic incident in Afghanistan leaves Master Sergeant Nathan Ryker the only man standing in his tight-knit team, he spirals into an alcohol-and-sex induced escape. A call from his lifelong buddy pulls Ryker from the shadows with a request for help with his stunt company’s latest blockbuster. If Ryker can survive the next three weeks of leave and get back to his remaining men, he might just be all right. But a sexy woman who can take his mind off his trauma is too hard to resist, and when he hooks up with Renegades’ sultry, snarky office manager, his sanity takes a backseat to his first glimpse of a future he isn’t sure he deserves.
Still reeling from a bitter romantic betrayal, Rachel Hart wants nothing more than an uncomplicated hookup. So when the mysterious Nathan seduces her with a little dirty talk and one delicious kiss, Rachel drowns all her good sense in a Mandarin and soda and gives herself over to a night of sexual bliss. But her memories tarnish in the morning light when Rachel discovers his real identity and his link to Renegades. Her job and her friends are the only thing holding her life together, and she won’t be ruined by one sultry night with this damaged and dangerously sexy man.
Ricochet is my favorite book of the Renegade Series by Skye Jordan. That is saying a lot since I loved the previous books. The Renegades are a company of stunt specialists in Hollywood. Each member has a specific speciality, a unique personality, a huge amount of sex appeal, and embrace their bad boy persona.
In the midst of all of this male testosterone is Rachel Hart. She is the commander, the organizer, the go to girl, the best friend, the little sister, and glue that keeps this company together. Her job title is secretary but she is much more than her job description.
Her latest task is to pick up Troy’s friend that is an explosive specialist at the airport. The Renegades desperately need Ryker’s expertise on a stunt in their current film. She has talked to Ryker on the phone and had a flirty conversation with him but does not know what he looks like. Once she arrives at the airport, late due to a fender bender on the interstate, she cannot find Ryker anywhere. She is beyond annoyed and just wants to end another bad day. She heads to the airport bar to fortify her spirits and shed some of the crappy day. At the bar she meets a smoking hot stranger that fills some of that “fortification” she desperately needs. One hot sexy night with a stranger is the ticket. And what a night it turns out to be. She has found herself a real sex God. Their chemistry is explosive. Their one night together has blown apart every other sexual encounter she has had. But it’s one night only. She does not have the time or the inclination for a relationship. She has dealt with the mess that relationships bring, come out battered, and has sworn never let it happen again.
Nathan Ryker is on mandatory leave from the military to get his head strait. After sixteen years, most in the warzone, he has demons that haunt him. He has trouble sleeping, has triggers that cause him to revert back to the warzone, and has been broken to pieces. When the opportunity to work with an old buddy arises, it seems like a perfect solution to take a reprieve from his destructive path of drinking and screwing. When he meets the sexy secretary Rachel in the airport bar he can’t help but take the one night she is offering. He quickly realized that she was the sexy secretary from the Renegades that he had some fun, flirty conversations with. She has no clue that his first name is Nathan and he’s happy to leave it that way. One explosive night with Rachel will turn Nathan Rykers point of detonation into a new direction.
Once the two face each other at work they know that they are off limits to one another. But now that they have had a taste of each , they want and need more.
Rachel and Nathan’s relationship will build from instant lust to a deep rooted friendship to a devoted loving relationship. Their banter is feisty, fun, emotional, and sexy. Their chemistry is off the charts. Their romance is heart warming.
I loved everything about this book. Nathan and Rachel were dynamic characters. Their stories and emotions were very real. The writing, story flow, and pacing were perfect. Jordan Skye has added another fabulous book to the fabulous Renegade series.
Ricochet can be read as a stand alone novel or in series order. I recommend reading the complete series. It will not disappoint!
The Renegade Series
“Hotter than hell and a lot more fun. Skye Jordan’s writing sizzles!”
-Elisabeth Naughton, New York Times bestselling author
A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life.
Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he’s given up acting. Finding a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping stone to success is virtually impossible, so when the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a chance at a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more. Lots more.
But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle. And 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 rest.
Warning: This novel contains uber-hot sexual encounters. For safety’s sake, read along with pitcher of ice-water. Or…wine…
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.
I am a New York Times Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my more … sexually heated … works.
My Skye Jordan novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.
And, yes, even love. Because even as Skye Jordan I’m just a happily ever after kinda gal.
Thanks for reading!
