Rubi Russo has spent her entire life trying to make her father proud, however, her father could care less about her. He only tolerates her because she was dropped on his door step, and California has steep paternity laws. Over the years, Rubi has hardened her heart to never let anyone in. She doesn't want the hurt of someone walking away from her, as her father has done it her entire life, and she refuses to let it happen anymore.
Enter Wes Lawson. He first caught a glimpse of Rubi in Reckless (the 1st book in the Renegades series), and he just can't stop thinking about her. He is the polar opposite of Rubi. He had a normal family and is very much loved by them. But he just isn't happy with his love life. He has always date the cute wholesome girls that you take home to mom and pop. But things change once Jax and Lexi (Wes and Rubi's best friends start dating).
Wes does an amazing job coaxing Rubi out of the safety of her carefully constructed walls, and Rubi has Wes realizing that he has never like cute girls, the complete opposite of Rubi. He just wants her. Their story is by far one of my favorites, as I instantly fell in love with Rubi Russo. Her character hit close to home as I have had to deal with family (not my parents thankfully) not caring about me as well (thankfully my husbands family love me enough that mine is inconsequential to me now). She is by far one of the best characters I have come across and how much her and my situation were alike was scary. I was glad to see her overcome her situation. Rubi deserved her HEA.
I am very curious to see what happens in Ricochet with Rachel and Ryker (FYI Piper's voice for him is to die for. I just hope its the same in the book). The sexual tension between them was quite obvious with their brief phone call. I can't wait to listen to Ricochet. I'm sure Skye won't disappoint me.
Rubi Russo was the complete opposite. Hollywood badgirl that didn't know how to stay put and didn't do attachments. She drove fast, partied hard and kept everyone on their toes.
It wasn't until Jax & Lexi became the Renegades power couple did Wes & Rubi start to see more of each other and become friends. The things they had in common started to become more noticeable. And the feelings Rubi thought she couldn't have started to pop up in her mind as foreign thoughts and ideas that she didn't understand. Wes did what he could to break through the walls and barriers.
While Wes was working on Rubi's barriers, there were things within himself that he had to understand. This was pointed out by his sweet sister Whitney and this helped him figured out his next moved with Rubi.
The two were explosive and sweet together. Wes' protective qualities made him the perfect match for Rubi. It will be great to see how they progress in future books.
*One note- the girl on the cover looks NOTHING like how Rubi is described in the book and it is such a shame. Instead of finding an actual brown person, you tan up someone else? A real waste and disappointment.
When she spots Wes for the first time, she blatantly flirts with him but he's not interested. Wes is a one woman kind of guy and he had a woman. He is close to his family, the exact opposite of Rubi's upbringing. Yet there is a strong attraction between the two of the them.When Wes is finally free, Rubi tries to deny her growing feelings for Wes but he's not about to make it easy for her. Together they work to develop a device to help his brother war related injuries. Their collaboration brings them closer together. But Rubi starts running scared from their budding relationship, throwing up road blocks everywhere she can.
Meeting Wes's family is a monumental step for Rubi. When she sees the love surrounding Wes she can't help but being drawn in. But will it be enough to tear down years of insecurity and lack of affection.
I really like this book series. Wes and Rubi are dynamite together despite all the pitfalls surrounding them. The Renegades are a hardworking, fun loving, dedicated to their craft bunch of guys. It's fun getting to know their subset of characters. Skye has once again given us characters and a storyline that makes us care for them.
