She was in deep, deep trouble. Because she wanted him more than she wanted to turn him away.

What can I tell you about this series aside from Skye Jordan is the queen of steam. Holy hell but the woman can write one hell of a sex scene. I thought book one was hot, but let me tell you; this book? SCORCHING
I wasn't sure how I felt about Rubi and Wes after the last book. Wes is a Southern good ole boy that likes his girls sweet, and Rubi is the furthest thin

Sizzling hot, dirty talking, heart stealing here comes book two of the renegade series ... This author without a shadow of a doubt hits the bullseye for books that are full of steamy, passionate liaisons. Sky Jordan's Renegade series is one that i'd gladly label as the 'perfect escape' novels with just that touch of trouble in paradise and smutty loving to make it all one desirable package, Here are the rest of my 'Rebel' book thoughts ...

4.5 Stars!!!
Skye Jordan has done it again, and I couldn't be more satisfied with Rubi and Wes's story. Just as in Reckless, this book starts off with loads of sexual tension, only Rubi's brand of sexy is definitely more on the fun and flirty and BLATANTLY sexual side. That's just who she is, and therein lies the road block to her and Wes having a real relationship. Because despite Wes' job as a living-on-the-edge stuntman, he tends to go for hometown girl sweethearts when it comes to women.

Ever since I read ‘Reckless’ I’ve been waiting for Wes and Rubi’s story. Rubi and Wes have had this connection since they first laid eyes on one another. There was a pull there, a spark. Rubi grew up rich, yet alone. Neglected and ignored by her father, she has trouble trusting men. She doesn’t do relationships. Period. She won’t sleep with her friends and she doesn’t sleep with anyone more than once. But there is something about Wes. Something about him makes her want to break a

★★★★ 4 My Very Own Rebel stars!

Rebel by Skye Jordan is the second book in her Renegades-series and a perfect follow-up to its prequel Reckless. Ever since reading the previous book, I've been looking forward to Wes and Rubi's story. Just like Lexi in book one, Rubi is a feisty, independent heroine but even more so, Rubi actively works at pushing away anyone who come to close to penetrating her tough exterior. It was already clear that Wes was a bit infatuated with the exotic beauty, but will he

Rebel is the second story in Skye Jordan's Renegades series. It can be read as a stand alone but, of course, to get the full experience, of our cast of characters, it's advisable to read the series in order!!!

Skye Jordan has done it again! I really enjoyed Wes & Rubi’s story. I tried not to compare it to the first book because I liked the first book better, but that’s just my opinion. So by itself, this book was really great.

Wes is a sweetheart. He dotes on Rubi with love notes on her car and is strong enough to hold on when Rubi loses it. Rubi is afraid of commitment, for good reason. I unders

Skye Jordan…. Oh, let me count the ways I love your new book, Rebel:

As the second in a series… it is so easy to fall back on what worked in the first book. You did not do that. You took the band of characters we met in Reckless and just expanded and made them more endearing. You let us feel comfortable re meeting all of them and then focused carefully on Rubi and Wes, guiding with an artful hand as to where you wanted us t

3.5 Rebel Stars!

Rubi and Wes have developed a good friendship with each other since they are always hanging around with Jax and Lexi. They are definitely attracted to each other except Rubi doesn't want to take that step past friendship to something else no matter how hard Wes tries. She doesn't want to be with anyone or have to rely on anyone.

After a lot of hard work on Wes's part, Rubi finally caves and knows immediately that she is in way too deep already, but he is relentless. He knows Rubi

Wes Lawson, stunt man extraordinaire on the Renegades Team, was immediately drawn to the feisty hot Rubi when he met her at the airport a few months back. Best friend to Lexi in Reckless, they've grown quite close. When Lexi hangs with Rubi, he inevitably is the fourth in the equation with Jax. Bummer d
4,5 Rebellious Stars!!

This second installment tells us the story of Wes and Ruby. Yes, Rubi in rich-and-classy Lexie’s best friend and Wes in badass-stunt Jax friend and member of his team.
Their chemistry is definitely undeniable, but while Wes soon realizes that Rubi is the girl for him, Ruby doesn’t want anything else except a purely physical relationship. So, if we wants more, she can’t give him anything and insists on not wanting to ruin their “friendship”.

*Could have easily been a full five if not for Rubi and her "issues."

Rebel is the second book in Jordan Skye's Renegades Series. Like its predecessor, this book is scorching hot. Panty-melting, fan-yourself hot. And features two equally hot and gorgoues characters in Wes and Rubi. But the star of this book for me is Wes Lawson.

Rebel is a book, that I won't struggle to write a review about. I have literally "highlighted" about 50% of the text, whether it be because it made me laugh, made me sigh, made me a little hot, or just because the writing was so damn good I wanted to look it over again.

Wes and Rubi figured quite alot in Reckless, being both Jax and Lexi's closest friends, and because of that I was itching for more of them, and have been waiting avidly for Rebel's release. I want t

We met Wes and Rubi in book 1. The spotlight is on them now as they move from friends to lovers.

Wes only does commited relationships. Where you gonna find a guy like that?! He was rediculously perfect and the notes he wrote Rubi. Aww!!!

If that were true, baby... I'd have done you by now

I was hoping this book would change my opinion of Rubi since book 1. If anything I dont like her even more. You know the type, fighting the attraction running, jumping to conclusions, running

Remember Rubi? Lexi’s best friend with abandonment issues who was a little over the top and completely scared shitless of commitment, well she’s back. She’s nowhere near normal, but that is one of thing things that is driving Wesley Lawson crazy.

There’s no doubt there is attraction, but Wes has started to become a good friend to Rubi over the last few months. Worried that bring sex into the mix would

Who doesn't love a friends to lovers romance? And I think one of the things I loved was that they are both best friends to the H/h of the first book so that meant we got a lot of Lexi and Jax as well.

But to be honest, it took me a bit to get into the book. I hate to say it but it was t

High class, confident, sassy and smart, Rubi has everything she has ever wanted; fast cars, no string relationships and all the money a girl could ever ask for. Seeing her best friend Lexi settle down the Hollywood bad boy, tugs on something in her, something she refuses to feel...but sharing her best friend with Jax and the rest of the Renegades puts her right in Wes sights and this too good to be true cow boy makes her want things

Rebel was an incredibly steamy and wildly entertaining read.
It had just as much panty soaking scenes as the first installment in the "Renegades" series.

I have to say that Wes, at the moment is my favorite Renegade.
He's gorgeous, passionate, extremely dedicated to Rubi, and hot damn this man can work magic with chocolate ice cream.

All I can say is this book had me feeling like this throughout...

Fast cars, even faster bikes, puppies, ice cream and a seductive dance between two friends who want a lot more than friendship from each other. Need any more reasons to read this book? Oh, you go:

I'm so blissfully happy I don't even know how to process it. One thing is for sure the Renegades boys are on my all-time-favourite-feel-good-and-make-me-smile romance book list - with whipped cream on top. It's a brand new list, btw. Very little competition.

Wes Lawson aka Golden Boy is a stunt driver for Renegades. He is so far my favorite Renegade! He is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. Wes grew up in a big loving family. He really is an all around great guy! He is used to dating the same type of sweet girl. He likes to be in a relationship, and is the type of guy that is honest and real about his feelings. He meets Rubi Russo, & she is nothing like any woman he has ever dated, but is everything he wants!

Straight up, didn't like this near as much as Jax and Lexi's book. So the series continues on now with Rubi and Wes, Rubi is Lexi's BFF and Wes is one of Jax's stuntmen.

And Rubi be like, well I be like to Rubi...


So yes folks, another cray cray ass heroine with daddy issues. So yes folks, that leads to her pushing a friends with benefits situation with Wes. And yes folks, which leads to mis-understandings and all that nonsense. It was way too much b
Book two in the Renegades series is yet another smart and sexy read, brimming with great banter and sensational UST.

This time focussing on Rubi and Wes (respective best friends of Lexi and Jax from Reckless), they are already great friends, although with a simmering sexual tension underneath their friendship that is obvious to absolutely everybody. They have a great, flirty relationship, and take great enjoyment out of teasing each other at every opportunity.

I loved the little bit we got of Rubi and Wes in Reckless, the first Renegades book. Rubi was sassy, sexy and free spirited and Wes appeared as that responsible friend but he still oozed sexiness. There was definitely a spark between these two and I was looking forward to reading their story.

Skye Jordan did not disappoint! Rebel was another hot, sexy and fun Renegades book.
