Ricochet by Skye Jordan
Ricochet (Renegades, Book 3)
After a tragic incident in Afghanistan leaves Master Sergeant Nathan Ryker the only man standing in his tight-knit team, he spirals into an alcohol-and-sex induced escape. A call from his lifelong buddy pulls Ryker from the shadows with a request for help with his stunt company’s latest blockbuster. If Ryker can survive the next three weeks of leave and get back to his remaining men, he might just be all right. But a sexy woman who can take his mind off his trauma is too hard to resist, and when he hooks up with Renegades’ sultry, snarky office manager, his sanity takes a backseat to his first glimpse of a future he isn’t sure he deserves.
Still reeling from a bitter romantic betrayal, Rachel Hart wants nothing more than an uncomplicated hookup. So when the mysterious Nathan seduces her with a little dirty talk and one delicious kiss, Rachel drowns all her good sense in a Mandarin and soda and gives herself over to a night of sexual bliss. But her memories tarnish in the morning light when Rachel discovers his real identity and his link to Renegades. Her job and her friends are the only thing holding her life together, and she won’t be ruined by one sultry night with this damaged and dangerously sexy man.
Ryker and Rachel are the perfect combination of chemicals to create the biggest explosion possible. At the best of times they are about to go to war and at worst, a nuclear explosion. Emotions are deep within these two.
Ryker is enough to make any woman melt. This hard bodied man is smooth in all the ways that make you want a man. Under his amazing exterior is a wounded man with cuts landing to his core. Using booze and women to keep his mind still. How knew doing a favor for a life long friend would make his own foundation quake.
Rachel wants no strings. Being betrayed by both a lover and family, has put a wall around her heart. However that has not stopped her from acting on a whim in the heat of the moment. What a moment or hour it was. What should have been a lasting memory, walked right into here office and planned on staying for a bit. Caring be part of who she is, makes Ryker more than dangerous in too many ways.
Fans of the Renegades series will be amazed at the depth of emotion pouring from the pages of this book. My favorite in the series thus far, it digs further than the previous books. Emotionally intense hanging on the edge of sexual explosion. Ricochet will cause your heart to race, your eyes to water and your temperature to rise. I couldn’t put the book down!
