Riptide (Renegades, #6) by Skye Jordan

A Review by Wendy
 4 Renegades' Style of Love Stars

Spoiler Free

In 2013, I fell in love... I fell hard and true. I gave my heart to a new book called Reckless (Renegades, #1). It was written by Skye Jordan and I thought everything about it was Amazing. It had a unique way the main characters met, the almost anonymous coupling between them and more hot sexy times then I could imagine on a good day... But it also had a plot, humor and heart... which made it a huge winner in my book and many others, too. It became a big success and started a popular series.

This series has been around for a while now and each of the entries have had value... some more than others...but over all satisfying for the fans. This entry has all the markings of a positive read.

There is the a bit long in the tooth professional surfer. He has been well liked on the surf circuit but as the years have gone by, his body is having a harder and harder time healing from all of the abuse the sport throws at him. He has been part of the Renegades crew but his only stunt talent is surfing which is a very limited need. He lucked out by landing a double position for a TV show that shoots in Hawaii. The main characters is a surfer...duh...And our guy sort of looks like the star.

Only trouble...the star is a asshat and no one likes working with him. The star's reputation of being difficult, short with fans...even when he is "Doing Them" and full of himself, has not gone unnoticed by all... producers, studio execs and the director. If everyone had their way...our Renegade guy would just take over the part.

The flip side of this story is our gal...She is from the world of Washington DC. She is a person who makes sure things get done... and she is loyal and caring. When her best friend passed, the daughter became her daughter, Period. She is now in Hawaii trying to get the stunt double to sign off on parental papers... letting her have total custody. She had to find this man and make him sign.

What happens next is a mistaken identity...which was totally understandable...
He was forced to play the actor in a social setting...
She kept waiting to see if the double turned up...
Both were attracted to each other and things lent themselves to sharing that attraction...
If you know what I mean....

And then she finds out he was the double....
And he finds out he was a dad to a precious little girl...

This Renegade tale has all the touchstones of the series... hot hot chemistry, an adorable little girl who captures our guys heart easily...and a couple who are opposites but work perfectly together. We get to see and hear about past characters, enjoy a fully formed tale and experience what made this series in the first place... Skye Jordan's ability to put it all together.

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

Skye’s New York Times bestselling 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 Skye is ultimately a romantic at heart and a happily ever after kinda gal. Skye also writes romantic suspense as Joan Swan, weaving fast paced novels of passion, danger and suspense.
Skye is a California native recently transplanted to the East Coast and living in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington DC with her husband of 25 years. She has two grown daughters in college in Colorado and Oregon. In her free time she’s always taking classes and attending seminars. She’s currently loving mosaics, forensic sculpting, pastry and cooking classes and knitting.
