Rachel is the Renegade's office manager,secretary, payroll clerk, etc. In other words all around gal. She is recovering from personal heartbreak not only losing her fiance but losing him to her sister. While she tries to deal with her family drama she must keep the Renegades from running amok.
Missed connections and miscommunications lead to a hot one-night stand of great sex between Ryker and Rachel. Imagine his surprise when he meets her the next day on a movie set the Renegades are working. As part of his job negotiation Ryker insists that Rachel become the site coordinator for the stunt in the hopes they can continue where they left off. Rachel and Ryker try to keep their relationship on the QT while Troy keep the pressure on Ryker to leave Rachel alone. Troy is trying to protect Rachel from getting hurt knowing that Ryker will be gone once the stunt is completed.
Skye Jordan does an admirable job of in writing about the problems our service personnel deal with in the aftermath of fighting a war. PTSD is not always recognized until it is too late. In addition, those who have suffered devastating and life altering injuries are often the forgotten. I applaud Skye for this great story incorporating a topic that has not been sufficiently addressed in this country. Loking forward to the next book.
I'm very picky when it comes to heroines, so when I say that I loved Rachel, I would switch teams for her, that's saying a lot. She didn't have the flash that Lexi and Rubi possessed, but she made up for it with her candid remarks and how she treated everyone around her. Her relationship with the men of Renegades was so sweet - she was a mother hen, a sister, a loyal friend, and I adored them for their protectiveness and respect. She was raised with certain values, so she was hardly the type to sleep around. But her one and only attempt to live a little like Rubi once had, was both an amusing success and failure. I really enjoyed seeing her push her own boundaries which led her on a path of self awareness.
Nathan was the perfect tortured hero. And when I say tortured, I really mean it. His journey throughout this story was heart-breaking at times. The glimpses into his psyche began during his introduction in the second chapter and just kept escalating from there. The author did an amazing job with his character. I felt every bit of his slow self destruction with each episode of his trauma being triggered.
This couple had chemistry in spades. Aside from the wickedly hot love scenes, it was Nathan's PTSD that ratcheted up their encounters up a few notches. From the beginning, Rachel was an exception to his method for dealing with his demons. That is, until near the end when he began to unravel completely. That one scene made my heart break for the both of them. It was a little uncomfortable but so raw and believable. There was a connection but yet also a horrible disconnect that was filled with angst. I started tearing up from that point forward. Outside of the sexcapades, they displayed wonderful communication skills, both serious and humorous. I loved the fact that they had meaningful dialogues which added credence to their developing feelings. They were both quite intuitive, but neither of them made the other feel foolish.
There is so much more that I could say, but this story is best experienced for yourself. If you love a confident and quirky heroine, a badly damaged hero with an edgy, sexy streak, and one hell of a redemption scene, then this story is definitely for you. I received an eARC for the purpose of an honest review, but upon completion, I had to purchase it for my personal collection. This is one book I will reach for for a re-read.
Rachel Hart is the office manager who seems to be able to do everything. She tries to run the office and company efficiently but dealing with the men is like working with toddlers. They bicker and it’s quite entertaining! Rachel has had some heartbreak and while she’s never done it, she thinks she would like to have a one night stand. She meets Nathan under misleading circumstances and agrees to spend the night with him, assuming she will never see him again.
Ryker has been sent home on leave to deal with many years in the Army as a Ranger and now an EOD expert, who has lived through a traumatic mission and loss. He’s dealing with PTSD and thinks he can work things out with plenty of alcohol and women. When he meets Rachel, he doesn’t think of her like other women but feels he has nothing to offer anyone. He had a rough childhood, years in the service, and only knows the love of his men in the service. His story was quite heartbreaking.
When Nathan Ryker shows up at the Renegades office the next day, Rachel is frantic that her boss and co-workers not know about their hookup. There are various reasons for this to cause friction but they can’t stay away from each other. They have such chemistry together and my jaw dropped at the sexual talents that Nathan shares with Rachel. Even though she is a firecracker in the office, bossing people around, she seems like she would be more ‘vanilla’ when it comes to sex. But there is something about the two of them that is dangerously combustible! Ms. Jordan can definitely write some scorching hot sex scenes.
Additionally, the emotional connection builds between the two while they fight it. They both have issues that are overwhelming but their caring personalities shine through and I loved both of them. There is plenty of action with plans to blow up a bridge for a movie and the amount of supplies and planning involved are extensive.
I was very interested in this story with the military aspect as I have several family members who are retired Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine and a couple that are currently active Air Force. I don’t have personal knowledge of PTSD nor family members who suffered loss of life or limb but could certainly empathize. Nathan feels guilty and responsible for an event, with continuing nightmares and won’t see a therapist.
There are so many other wonderful parts to this story, I could almost talk about each scene. This story was poignant, sweet, sexy, funny and enough angst to make it interesting. I laughed out loud at times and had tears in my eyes at others. Nathan’s grovel was epic and I could just visualize the scene!
I look forward to reading more of Ms. Jordan’s work.
