Bad boy Troy Jacobs is all about taking risks. As a stunt double for Hollywood’s A-listers, there’s no fall he won’t attempt. With one exception—women. Troy fell hard once, and it nearly broke him. Since then, he’s vowed never to trust like that again and he’s got everything under control. Until the woman who shattered his heart years before shows up on his movie-set.
Country music star Giselle “Ellie” Diamond learned long ago that sometimes love isn’t enough. When love got in the way of her goals, she made the tough choice to let go of happily ever after and chased the glitz and glamour of the stage. It may not be all she expected, but now it’s all she has. And with a worldwide tour on the line, Ellie needs one last gig to rocket her toward stardom: a high-profile role in a blockbuster film.
Passion sparks, and old feelings return. But while Troy and Ellie grow closer their problems from the past simmer in the background. And this time around, there's more tearing them apart than just one star-studded career.
I say this every time I read a new Renegades novel, but THIS one was my favorite (at least until the next comes out:))! Ellie and Troy are explosive. So much love led to so much hurt, and so the story goes. I was dying to see these two together. And when they were it was so achingly beautiful. But they're both in high stress, high profile jobs, and the tension is enough to shatter their cozy world all over again. They're stuck in a wicked circle until Ellie finally decides what she wants out of life, and Troy decides that loving Ellie trumps all else.
There was not a minute of this I did not enjoy, although if there had been more scenes reminiscent of their first meet after years, I wouldn't have complained. Talk about SCORCHING! Once again, Ms. Jordan blew my mind with the seemingly effortless writing, that seduced my mind, and dragged me (all too willingly) back into the Renegades world. I'll never complain about that kind of field trip!
Overall, one of my favorites of the year. Troy and Ellie are one of those sickeningly sweet couples with the passion to singe. I highly recommend, not only this book, but the entire series to anyone who wants a fantastic, all-consuming read!

And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.
Skye (aka Joan) lives on the central coast of California in the heart of wine country with her husband and two daughters. As often as possible, she retreats to a hotel with critique partners for a power-writing week where much drinking, laughing, and yes, even working, ensues. When she’s not writing, Skye goes to breakfast with her hubby, attends her daughters’ barrel races, and spends a lot of time with her own horse, Riddle…while her two dogs, Paxton and Indie, tag along. She also loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.
