Review - Rebel (Renegades #2) - Skye Jordan

A Review By Wendy

Rebel (Renegades #2) – Skye Jordan

4.5 Did Not Disappoint, Second in a Series, Friggin Hot Stars **** */*


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.


Those who are familiar with me may remember my delight and fangirling over Reckless, the first in the Renegade series by Skye Jordan. We met my declared new love at the time, Jax. This was man I could not resist; he was accomplished actor turned stuntman, knew what he wanted in life, had a strong internal compass and most importantly was so friggin hot he made my little heart sing. He met his woman for his life in Lexie and we were treated by Ms. Jordan some extremely sexy, dirty talking texts and experiences.

Now I was a little peeved I had to share Jax with Lexie and then of course all of the other readers of the book…. But I allowed myself a moment to get a grip and understand… sometimes things are just too big to keep to oneself, so I took to singing the praises of Jax and letting those who showed interest encouragement to meet him for themselves.

Which brings me to Rebel… when a reader loves an experience with a story… it can be hard to not compare the first book of the series to the second. I will admit at first I was a little nervous but once I started reading I was right back with the group and feeling the sense of belonging once again.

What was very interesting about this story, for me, was the depth of character given to both Rubi and Wes. These two characters had opposite family experiences and those differences were at first the biggest obstacles presented. Yet, there was just so much to root for with these people.

Rubi was a complex person with so much hurt from her childhood, she figured out very early how to compensate and protect herself. She was a child of neglect; not from poverty but from complete disinterest from her father. She lost her mother at a very young age and was sent to live a self absorbed CEO of mega conglomerate and he had no use for her. None…she received no love, no attention or recognition  for her talents in computer science or business.

Yet in spite of this, she was a spark, challenging and an amazing friend to Lexie.
