Ok my sweet little kittens, today Skye Jordan is sharing an exclusive excerpt from her upcoming release Reckless. She is also giving away a TON of stuff so be sure to check the links at the bottom for more on the contest! Now on with the awesomeness! Holy hotness I can’t wait to read this book. Let’s check out the blurb first.
A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.
Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.
But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too.
About the Series:
RECKLESS is the first book of a trilogy series: Renegades.
The rough and ready stuntmen of Renegades are experts in the fine art of death and destruction on the big screen. The best of the worst.
When it comes to tearing it down or blowing it up, no one can do it better, faster or with more flare than a Renegades’ bad-boy on a mission. When it comes to pleasing a women, no one can do it with more intensity or eroticism than that bad-boy with the need.
And while women come hot and fast for the sexy Renegades, holding on to the right woman may be the hardest stunt they’ve ever had to pull off.
Whew I’m excited all ready! Hot damn look at that cover. That is a lot of tattooed yumminess!! Now before we learn a little more about Skye and the contest let’s see an exclusive excerpt.
“I don’t know who she is.” Jax poured the other bottle of water over the stallion’s neck, rubbing it into his coat to keep himself busy while he talked. “She was on my flight here, texted me anonymously at the airport. We texted for like an hour. She was smart and funny and sexy. The conversation got hot, suggestive, but she wouldn’t come sit with me.”
A wary, suspicious sound came from Ty’s throat.
“I know, right?” Jax turned to pour the rest of the bottle on the horse’s hindquarters. “Anyway, I decided to take a chance, invited her to my room. She accepted at the last minute, when I was on my way out.”
“That takes some balls. Guess you lucked out. Who knows what you could have gotten walking into your room.” Ty shivered dramatically. “But don’t be surprised if Entertainment Tonight calls today asking for an exclusive on your new YouTube sex video.”
Jax’s skin chilled as if he’d poured a bottle of water over his own head. He hadn’t thought of that. “She didn’t seem to know who I was. And I lucked out all right. God, she’s…” His whole body lit up. His insides warmed as he shook his head. “It’s crazy, how much I like her.”
Ty said nothing.
Jax glanced at him. “What?”
“Did she drug your drink?”
Jax heaved a breath. “What do you mean?”
“Do you like getting fucked over, Chamberlin? Do you seriously think this chick doesn’t know who you are?”
“Yeah, I do. I’m not you, kid.”
“No, asshole, you’re way bigger than me.”
“Was,” Jax said. “You’ll learn once you’re out of the spotlight, they forget you fast.”
Ty shook his head, his expression filled with disgust. He picked up his reins, twisted to sit right in his saddle and cantered through the trees back toward the filming perimeter.
“Tyler!” Russ Matthers’ yell never reached the kid. Ty was long gone. The director, who was also acting as stunt coordinator, called to Jax. “Where is he going?”
Jax grinned, shrugged. “Not my day to watch him.”
“I knew having you two together on the set would be like herding cats.” Russ wiped sweat from his face with his forearm. “Go get him. I’ve got enough trouble with these damn cameras.”
It didn’t take Jax long to find Ty. He just followed the high-pitched female squeals. Ty had ridden over to the fence line and was off his horse, signing autographs. Jax pulled up, still within the trees. He didn’t need to get any closer to that screeching than necessary.
Pulling his cell from the saddle, Jax checked for a text from Lexi first—nothing—then texted Ty.
JAX: Your fifteen minutes of fame are over, kid. Grab the phone numbers you really want and get your ass back to the set.
Jax looked up from his phone, wondering why Lexi hadn’t texted him back. Then wondered why he cared. He’d gotten a killer blowjob out of the deal. She was the one shortchanged if she wouldn’t see him again.
But uncharacteristic doubts slid in again. Had he been a disappointment? Not what she’d expected? Not rough enough? Not crude enough? Should he have just fucked her? Or maybe she’d been expecting more romance. Something slower, sweeter.
His phone chimed.
TY: Come out here. See if anyone remembers you.
JAX: Tainted cross section the population. You’ve already told them I’m here. Dude, I don’t need an ego boost.
TY: I haven’t. I’ll prove it. Then you come out here and prove to yourself that chick is lying about knowing who you are.
“I have a friend with me today,” Ty yelled to the crowd, “who I think will make the ladies happy.”
The women erupted in screams and cheers again. Despite Jax’s denial about the need for an ego boost, warmth and excitement spurted into his chest the way it used to at the sound of applause. That love of recognition sure as hell died hard. Especially since he’d lived with it his entire life—acting before he could walk. Theatre until his late teens, when he’d transitioned to film. Just like Ty, who was now in his early twenties and far more successful than Jax had been at the same age.
“Fucking idiot,” Jax muttered.
“But he thinks,” Ty yelled over the crowd and they quieted to hear him, “I’ve told you who he is. So if anyone knows who’s here with me today, I want you to yell out his name.”
The names of a few of Ty’s costars floated out of the audience, but not Jax’s.
“Come on, ladies. I’m upping the ante. I will kiss any woman…” —screams of excitement interrupted Ty— “on the mouth, with tongue” —more screaming, cheering, women jumping up and down— “who can tell me who’s hiding in those trees over there.”
When no one guessed correctly, he offered dinner with the woman who gave the right answer. When he had dozens, maybe hundreds, of women frothing at the mouth, Ty offered to sleep with the woman who knew.
“For God’s sake.” Jax rubbed sweat off his face and texted Ty.
JAX: You made your point. Get your ass back to the set now.
“Dude!” Ty yelled toward the trees. “Your fans await.”
Jax sighed, frustrated as his tired legs tried to control the antsy Fresian. “Guess it’s time for the kid to learn just how fast those fans forget you once you’d left the box office,” he said to the stallion. “Let’s do this buddy.”
Jax released the pressure of his legs on the horse’s sides, easing him into a cantor toward the fence line.
His last big film had been over three years ago and Jax steeled himself to the disappointment of being unrecognizable. He told himself he was simply acting. Just running a scene.
When Jax broke the tree line, riding into the open, the sun blinded him. Before his eyes adjusted, his name filled the air in a chorus of shrill screams.
“Oh my God, it’s Bentley Chamberlin! Bentley! Over here, Bentley!”
The name took him off-guard. Jax hadn’t heard anyone scream Bentley in so long, he experienced a complete disconnect of past and present, reality and memory.
By the time Jax reached Ty, the true movie star was back up on his horse and local cops were physically holding fences in place against the surging crowd.
The commotion freaked Jax’s horse. The stallion pranced in circles, rearing. Great drama for the fans, might make for some stellar photographs, even kept a steady adrenaline drip to Jax’s blood, but it also wore him the hell out. This horse was higher strung than a wannabe starlet at the Academy Awards.
“I love you, Bentley,” came from women in the crowd.
“We miss you,” shrieked someone from a different direction.
“When are you making another movie?” another woman screamed.
Ty turned his horse in a circle, waving to the crowd. “Time to get back to work.”
He and Jax cantered along the fence line together to continued, but fading, screams.
Ty’s shit-eating grin didn’t set right with Jax. “Still think she doesn’t know you, Chamberlin?”
