4.5 out of 5 Licks
Renegades, Book 2
Sassy, smart, and sexy, former supermodel-turned-tech guru Rubi Russo has it all—looks, money, confidence and freedom. Her life is a whirlwind of fast cars and fleeting affairs—and she likes it that way. With a past like Rubi’s, forever isn’t part of her vocabulary. So when studly Renegade stuntman Wes Lawson wants to take their friendship to the next level, she’s all out.
Raised a simple country-boy, Wes knows the brazen Rubi isn’t his type. But after spending time with her, he discovers she’s everything he’s ever wanted in a woman. To win her wild rebel heart, he’ll have to prove he sees behind her smokescreen to all the goodness she tries to hide. Then it’s just a matter of crushing her fears, shattering her barriers, and convincing her that loving him is everything she’s been missing in her life, too.
Piece of cake.
Shout out to the cover artist for this series. These covers are freaking gorgeous and instantly made me want to read both Rebel and Reckless. You may recall my gushing review for Reckless (you can see it here) and after I finished Reckless I was chomping at the bit for Wes and Rubi’s story! Rebel didn’t start off as sizzling hot as Reckless may have but make no mistake it’s a hot read. Rubi and Wes needed a different start to their journey than Lexi and Jax. Wes is so amazingly sweet! I’m not sure how Rubi fought that attraction as long as she did. He leaves post it notes on her car every morning. *swoon* Just sweet little things and each one made me love him more and more. Her past left her bruised but her friendship with Lexi has really helped Rubi grow. Wes is so determined to break down the last of her walls. At times he comes across too perfect but he had a few idiot moments as well. lol The ending was a bit abrupt but it still gives a resolution. But I hate when my books end so I probably would have wanted it longer no matter how it ended.
Also if you haven’t read Reckless now is the perfect time to get it. It’s on sale for 99 CENTS but only for a limited time so go get it now!! 🙂
