Title: Riptide
Author: Skye Jordan
Series: Renegades #7
Release Date: May 12, 2017

My Rating: 5 STARS!
When pro surfer Zach Ellis isn’t traveling the world-wide competition circuit, he works as a Renegade stunt double for the hit TV series, Hawaiian Heat. After years of tangling with the ocean, his body has paid the price. So when he gets a shot at a star roll on the show, Zach’s all in. He celebrates the career opportunity by taking a chance on a woman who’s not his usual island-girl type, only to discover he can’t bear to let her go.

Tessa Drake belongs mired in legislation battles in Washington DC, not standing on the sidelines of a filming set in Maui like a wannabe starlet. But even more important than her law career, Tessa needs Zach Ellis’s signature on legal papers. Papers that relinquish his parental rights so Tessa can adopt the girl who already calls her mommy. When she discovers Zach has slipped out of town before she makes contact, Tessa takes solace in the sexy television star. A man whose warmth and dazzling grin makes her Mensa-level IQ vanish into thin air.

After an electrifying night together, Tessa is horrified to discover just who rocked her world. Zach is stunned to learn he’s a father. And both find themselves caught in a riptide pulling them in the opposite direction of their dreams.
This book. This book. This book!!!! Skye Jordan is by far one of my favorite authors, and RIPTIDE is just the perfect example of how she takes a typical trope and wraps it in all kinds of sexy, hot man goodness, and tops it with a strong kicka*s heroine and delivers you the most decadent story to get lost in!

Zach and Tessa have some unreliably enviable chemistry and with Zach heart-melting character and Tessa's endearing qualities I devoured every page of this book far too fast. This come very, VERY close to edging out as my favorite Renegades, book. It actually might. Every book in this standalone sereis gets better and better, but I'm not sure another man can take the place of Zach Ellis when he dives so willingly and 100% head first into being a daddy to Sophia and the perfect man for Tessa. It's swoon-worthy in the utmost of definitions.

Sigh... Ms. Jordan, you've set the bar once again even higher for yourself and I look forward SO MUCH to more of the Renegades and your other series! If you couldn't tell by my euphoric tone, RIPTIDE is an amazing read and one you need to get to reading NOW!

Happy Reading!

Skye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.

When she’s not writing, Skye loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.
