5 Best in the Series Stars

Ricochet was a negative theme in his life, one that caused way too much collateral damage...

I have been hooked with this series ever since I first read and absolutely loved Reckless. Now while the second book wasn't quite as good due to a heroine that I wanted to punch in the throat more often than not, this book managed to completely blow it out of the water for me. I loved every page. It was sexy, it was emotional, it was beautiful, it was perfect.

"Ricochet can cause a lot of damage.”

Emotional, sexy and my favorite of the series so far, Ricochet is a story you won’t want to miss out on!

Rachel Hart is the lovable secretary to the renegade boys. She is so much more than a secretary to them. She is a friend, a little sister, she keeps them in line and keeps everything together. She is indispensable. Now she’s on a task to pick up Troy’s friend from the airport. He’s an expert on explosives an they desperately need

Skye Jordan never fails to draw me into her world, introducing her characters in a really interesting, engaging manner. She makes me want to love them. Ryker and Rachel’s intro was all that and then, explosive… HOT!!

Ryker, our sexy broken hero is a good man, honourable, loyal, caring, dedicated and honest. The army has been his only constant, everything else... childhood, women, love... all transient. He’s seen and experienced things no man should have to.

"I'm going to spread you out on the bed when we get to the room. I'm going to look at you while I touch you. I'm going to lick you and suck you and fuck you. And I'm going to watch everything."

While Ryker isn't a "true" Renegade, he was just as drool worthy as the other Renegades. Ryker is on leave from the military. Troy asks Ryker to help on an explosives project for their latest movie.

I became a fan of Skye Jordan with the first Renegade’s book, and well this book totally solidified her awesome status in my book!

Explosions, fire, blowing it every way. Thank God the Renegades needed to blow up a bridge or Nathan Ryker would have never been experienced! For those wandering...Yes this is a hot steamy, bad boy meets girl kind of romance read, but the game changer here is the awesome Rachel Hart. Jordan h

"Ricochet can cause a lot of damage."

I've gotta go with the general consensus on this favorite by Skye Jordan so far! This was a story that squeezed some tears from me...the kind of tears that I tried to hold back because I didn't expect them and felt silly letting fall. Because...really? A sexy contemp romance about stuntmen and their go-to girl? Yeah, I went there. Nathan Ryker dragged the little teary-eyed girl out in me. He also dragged the raging slut out of me, but that's another

Rating Clarification: 4.5 explosive stars!

There is a certain expectation when you read a Skye Jordan book, particular with this series. You know going in that it's going to be HOT. And Ricochet delivered on that times ten.

But what really surprised me about this book is the gut-wrenching tenderness that I felt towards its characters. Sounds melodramatic, no? But I digress.

I’ve decided that this one is my favorite. There was just something about Ryker that I loved. As much as he had a hardness about himself because of all he has gone through there was a vulnerability about him that really got to me.

Rachel Hart is a woman with a full, busy life in Los Angeles. She works for a stunt company called the Renegades. She is the secretary/manager, and does everything but the stunts. She keeps everything running smoothly, and works with a bunch of gorgeous men all day. She doesn't mix work & sex, so she stays a bit lonely at times.

Ricochet is the last one of the Renegades for now... there are boys left, so I'm hoping Ms. Jordan will be so kind as to deliver some more alpha-stuntmen goodness. I'll be waiting over here in my little corner of the world...eating triple chocolate ice cream.

Rachel is the glorified secretary for the Renegades but she's oh so much more. And she wants oh so much more out of life. That includes lowering her inhibitions and allowing herself to enjoy things...things such as the handsome Nathan who she meets at the airport. Nathan's totally onboard with the idea but how can he tell her that he's really the guy that she was sent to pick up and that she is off limits?

4.5 And Loving Every Minute Of It Stars * * * * 1/2

Skye Jordan understands the whole man woman thing. She just does. She has developed a specific cadence...a way of drawing the reader in and believing the situations could somehow be real. How people at certain emotional points in their lives would make the mental leap to act differently... to seize moments... and go with their gut urges, balls to the wall. She makes you fall into the clutches of the scenario presented and takes you on a non stop

Rachel wanted a night of sex with a stranger. She didnt expect Ryker was the same guy working with the Renegades for their latest job.

I found this quite serious as both main characters had their issues. It dragged a little but the panty melting sex scenes more than made up for it. Also, Rachel was a better heroine than Rubi.

Fans of the series will enjoy this, and for readers who are new to this author, if you love reading about hot sex I think you will like this too. Personally, I liked

You could say that I am ‘tight’ when it comes to dishing out a 5, with regards to stars on my book ratings. This is not because I am a meanie, but because I read a lot of books. A large number of them of a very high calibre, and as such you will see that I give a lot of 4.5 stars. To hit a 5, an author has to do evoke 3 things from me –

I think I'm ready for this author to write a new series. I like her writing, and her books are hot and the stories are good, but I'm just ready for something different from her.

Also, one of my pet-peeves is when the heroine keeps running from the guy through the whole book. So that didn't help :(

I would still recommend this book because it was a good story and HOT :)

Ricochet marks not only the third book in Skye Jordan’s Renegade Series but my new favorite from this author.

Ricochet by Skye Jordan (Joan Swan) is the third book in the Renegade series. All the books in the series share supporting characters but Ricochet works fine as a stand-alone. Although sequential, this series isn’t one where previous events are continually alluded to, making it easy to just jump right in. For readers that like to read series books in order, start with Reckless (a favorite of mine!).
