Rubi and Wes

Rubi is a genius programmer with big time family baggage, Wes is a stuntman/mechanical engineer; these two are made for each other. ( )

It was different than the first and it was better too. I had high hopes for Rubi's turn falling in love and I am glad to say that I am not disappointed. The funny thing about this series and what makes it great is the fact that the focus of the majority of the problems in admitting that love is a good thing comes from the women, and that is a breath of fresh air. The women here are strong but they also have their share of hung-ups in life, which make their decisions harder.
Rubi had some deep issues with abandonment because of her father and that reflected in her relationship with Wes. On the other hand, Wes was so sure of what he felt, that some times he steamrolled Rubi and ended up messing her up even more. Indeed, my peeve was with Wes and how pushy he was at times. But, despite all that, I really enjoyed this installment. ( )

Rubi and Wes might be my new favorite book couple. They have so many issues that seem insurmountable but together they really can find happiness. I love Skye Jordan and can't wait to read more about the Renegades!!! ( )

Book given by NetGalley for an honest review.

If you do not know, I am a huge Skye/Renegade fan. Her stories are so gripping. They talk about life, love, and challenges. The assumption is that if you are beautiful you are put together and your are not approachable. But when you meet the women in this series (two books are out currently, one on the way (YES!)), you will see that they have their flaws, love hard, are fragile, but are the some of the fiercest heroines at the end of the story.

You want all the HEAÛªs and gooey stuff with love.

But you will not get it.

Instead you get to see them living life and loving.

And it is awesome.


You met Rubi, Lexi‰Ûªs best friend, in [b:Reckless|19513721|Reckless (Renegades, #1)|Skye Jordan|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1387898248s/19513721.jpg|25685033].

Rubi, as listed best in the synopsis, is a true spit-fire. She knows what she wants from men (a one night stand) and her freedom. She likes having control, being able to come and go and as she wants. No one gets to hurt, especially her. Rubi is all about protection of self.

Wes is Jax/Bentley Chamberlin‰Ûªs closest friend and lover of all things Rubi. This stuntman, this daredevil, wants to take a chance with Rubi; be in a relationship with her, even though she is not his ‰ÛÏtype‰Û.

Rubi wants Wes but she seems to be at odds with herself. She is determined that their life could not work due her past, which haunts her.

All through out the novel Rubi has conversations with herself, talking her lusty self out of wanting to be with Wes.

‰ÛÏYou‰Ûªre not falling for him, dumb shit. He is way out of your league. He doesn‰Ûªt do temporary, and you don‰Ûªt do permanent. Don‰Ûªt fuck up a good thing.‰Û

Rubi has very few people that she trusts and she has even fewer friends. To fall in love with a man that is not only someone you trust but also a friend, is terrifying. For Rubi, she could lose it all, and in her mind she already has nothing.

The book was so sad and sweet. It was some major steam in this book. If you enjoyed Reckless then you will love Rebel. ( )
