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.
Rubi Russo is smart, funny, and has the hots for stuntman, Wes Lawson. But no matter how scorching their encounter could be, or how sinfully charming Wes is, Rubi refuses to follow through and give in to her lustful feelings.
Rubi doesn't do relationships. Her painful and lonely past has made it hard for her to trust, much less, connect with anyone. Her friendship to Lexi is the only true relationship that has come to mean the world to her.
But Lexi has committed herself to Jax and their budding relationship has left Rubi feeling empty. When Lexi takes a difficult step in her relationship with Jax, Rubi decides to jump the proverbial cliff and fall into Wes's arms. Even if it's only for one night of delicious and erotic decadence.
But Wes Lawson has other ideas. He knows how good he and Rubi could be together. And he gives it everything he has to convince a skittish Rubi to take a chance--a chance on himself and on the possibility of love.
Skye Jordan has penned a sinfully naughty romance filled with humor, emotion, and dynamic characters. Wes is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. He's the boy-next-door with a rebel heart who likes to live on the edge.
And although Rubi may hide her heart behind a fortress of steel, she is loyal to those who have remained close to her and knows how to handle a powerful Aston Martin (side note--my dream car). She has brains, beauty, and a vulnerability that makes her likable as a heroine.
Wes and Rubi, two rebels in their own right, make for a combustible union as they come together and discover the power of love.
