Oh how I can’t get enough of Skye Jordan’s Renegades! Rapture, the eight book in the series is captivating, steamy, raw, and romantic. When I read a series with so many fabulous characters, I often wonder if Jordan can write another story that will be as good as better as the others. I shouldn’t doubt her. Zahara, the first stunt woman that has been featured in the Renegades series and I loved it!

Zahara and Chase, the main characters of Rapture are explosive from the beginning and the story works so very well for them. Their conflict is not so unlike others but it is a raw and real. Jordan has an incredible way of putting the reader into the story and feeling all the same emotions as the characters. From the beginning during the hot, passionate, incredible love scene to the anger and disappointment when Chase wasn’t quite living up to his words. I love feeling the gamut of emotions while read Jordan’s stories.

I have enjoyed the stunt world that has been the Renegades series. Just like in the intimate scenes, Jordan does a fantastic job of showing us what is going on in the stunt scenes. From the exhilarating jumps over cliffs, to the painful landings of some stunts. It is an exciting and action filled part of the story! I loved every minute of Rapture!

If you are looking for a very sexy story with a long, detailed intimate scene along with fantastic story and well developed characters, give Rapture a read. Each of the books in this series stands alone, so while reading the others is a must for entertainment purposes, you can still start with Rapture. You will love it!

No Remorse by Skye Jordan is the second book in the Manhunters series and is so incredibly good. It’s one of those books where you are flipping pages like crazy to find out what is going to happen but then sad when you get to the end because it’s over.  The plot of No Remorse is original and engaging and the characters are well developed and you fall for them.

Austin is in love with his daughter Mirabella and will do anything to protect her. Everly is tasked to go in undercover as a nanny as part of an operation to return Mirabella to her grandmother, who has legal custody. But when Everly notices things aren’t quite what they seem, she struggles between what she believes is right and the duty to her team. As if that isn’t enough, add in little Mirabella who is captivating in many scenes and you have a book that has you hanging on every word so you don’t miss a thing.

Jordan does a fantastic job with No Remorse. She allows the readers to fall in love with Austin and Mirabella and struggle with Everly. The pacing of the story was right on and I could not put it down. Jordan drops the reader right into the story and makes them touch, feel, and hear what is going on. It’s great!

If you like romantic suspense, give No Remorse a read. It is the perfect balance of suspense, edge of your seat action, and passionate romance – the perfect blend of everything I love in a story. I can’t wait to read more books in this series!

Grave Secrets by Skye Jordan is the first book in the Manhunters Series, and it is excellent. If you are a romantic suspense fan you will enjoy it! Even if you aren’t but have enjoyed Jordan’s other books, this one is worth the read.

Grave Secrets features the romance between Ian and Savannah. Ian is the newest member of the Manhunters team and is thinking this op in Hazard, Montana is a joke. He is used to neutralizing threats from around the world. Now he is after some small town counterfeiters?  What a joke. Savannah is a single mother who is trying so dang hard to get out from under the control of her abusive ex-husband. Too bad he is the sheriff and controls the entire town. When Ian and Savannah’s paths cross things heat up and you are in for quite a ride.

Jordan does a fantastic job with the plot of Grave Secrets. It is unique, well written, and exciting for the reader. It is filled with moments that have you sneaking around with the Manhunters and even on a high speed chase in he snow! Talk about an adrenaline rush. I love it when books bring out real emotions in me.

The romance between Ian and Savannah was easy and relaxed. Something Savannah desperately needed in her life. As with all of Jordan’s books, the intimacy was so well done between these two. I adored Savannah’s 5-year-old son, Jamison in this story. He provided such light to the scenes he was in and really connected with Ian. Grave Secrets is a book filled with romance, passion, suspense, love, and hope. If you are looking for these things in your books, give it a read.

Review & Giveaway: DIRTIEST LITTLE SECRET by Skye Jordan

Don’t you just love picking up a book by an author you love and diving into one of their stories? Skye Jordan is an auto-read author for me because I know every story she writes will be filled with emotion, smart characters, and freaking hot sex. Such is the case with Dirtiest Little Secret. So good.

Ava is looking for a good time. She was recently betrayed, feels like she is living in a cage made by her parents, and is just not enjoying her current life. Ready to step outside her carefully erected ivory tower, Ava visits a rough biker bar looking for something. She finds it alright. In the sexy Isaac. She is in for quite an experience with him.

Jordan delivers an engaging story in Dirtiest Little Secret where you find yourself immersed in the characters’ lives and living things out along with them. Not only do Isaac and Ava have explosive chemistry in the bedroom but also outside. They enjoy each others’ company and are a great match for each other intellectually. It’s just too bad that Isaac has to go and mess things up by withholding the fact that he remembers her from his childhood but she has no clue. Tsk, tsk, Isaac. I am siding with Ava on that one.

With all good romance stories, though, there is a happy ever after in Dirtiest Little Secret. This book is a quick read so and I found myself reading it from start to finish in no time at all. It was tough to put down and the pacing just flowed so well. So beware that when you pick it up, you will want to have plenty of time to finish it!

Skye’s New York Times bestselling novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because Skye is ultimately a romantic at heart and a happily ever after kinda gal. Skye also writes romantic suspense as Joan Swan, weaving fast paced novels of passion, danger and suspense.

She is his fantasy…

Ava Jennings has spent her life dedicated to her family’s steel business. So when she catches her fiancé engaging in extracurricular activities under his desk with a coworker, Ava fires him on the spot. With her self-esteem at an all-time low, Ava throws caution to the wind and heads to a well-known, wild biker bar. She’s determined to prove she’s capable of the spontaneous, wicked-hot sex her fiancé was searching for outside their relationship. And she finds all that and more in a rugged, edgy motorcycle mechanic, the one man in the bar who eclipses all the others.

He’s her dirtiest little secret…

Isaac Banks doesn’t talk to members of the Steel Warriors motorcycle club about his painful past. All they know is he’s the best bike mechanic in the state, which is exactly how he likes it. Ava doesn’t recognize him as the awkward kid who used to spend Sunday nights at her dinner table with their families, but she’s sure interested in the man she thinks he is now. She’s from the world he left behind, and he knows he should walk away—but it’s impossible to say no to the woman who starred in all his adolescent fantasies. All he wants is one night to get her out of his system. Because there was no way she could live up to his dreams.

But he’s wrong. One night will never be enough.

Review: WILD ZONE by Skye Jordan

Hot hockey guys and delicious food. Who wouldn’t want to read about that? Wild Zone by Skye Jordan is a delectable sexy story filled with everything you expect in a Skye Jordan book. It has the engaging plot, flawed characters, fun dialogue, and insanely hot intimate scenes that have you hanging on each word written.

Wild Zone is the fourth book in the Rough Riders series, but each is written so you can read it as a stand alone. In this one we are treated to Tate and Olivia’s story. They are both struggling with trust issues. Tate is dealing with lingering self-esteem issues after catching his ex-wife cheating on him and Olivia is still nursing the hurt of something kept from her by those closest to her. When the two of them meet for the first time, you just know the chemistry is going to be off the charts.

Jordan writes this erotic tale in such an emotional way that your heart is pulled all over the place. The feelings of each character jump off the page and you feel along with them, whether it’s happy, sad, frustrated, or turned on. I so enjoyed Olivia’s fresh personality in Wild Zone. She was pretty straight forward and to the point. With some prodding, Tate went after what he wanted and they tried to make things work even through the huge obstacles thrown their way. They were both unique characters that you don’t read in traditional romance. They almost felt more real than most. I loved every minute of it!

Wild Zone is a quick, sexy, contemporary romance story that whisks you away from reality and lets you enjoy the life of Tate and Olivia for a bit. I highly recommend you give it a shot.
