I really liked both Zach and Tessa, and not just because their chemistry was off the charts. Zach might be a rootless surfer who has slept with more than his share of women, but he’s not a player and he’s not careless, he’s just been having fun. He has goals and loves what he does, but he’s never planned on settling down. Yet when Tessa and Sophia drop into his life, he takes the responsibility seriously. He’s a good guy who just hasn’t had the chance to show how amazing he could really be before.
Tessa is amazing. She’s smart and competent and is a pro at looking after those who matter in her life. But she’s also used to being taken for granted and not having anyone to lean on. I appreciated the way she tried to let Zach in, even as I understood how she struggled. Sure, she doesn’t exactly go out of her way to find a way for Zach to fit in with their lives, but considering what she was expecting when she tracked him down, I could understand her needing a few days to reassess her options.
Because all of this happens pretty quickly. The chemistry, the revelations, the relationship between Zach and Sophia, the pull of real life. I actually didn’t mind how quickly feelings developed between them and how they all get swept up in everything. But I do wish a few more things had been explored a little deeper – like the money issue, everyone’s plans and hopes for the future, maybe a bit more about Zach’s family and things with Abby. One or two things are mentioned but quickly brushed aside in favour of the main drama.Read more ›
Skye Jordan returns with the sixth book in the outstanding Renegades series. Riptide gives us pro-surfer/stuntman Zach Ellis’ story, and I devoured it.
The themes in this story, could quite well have pushed it over into the over-the-top drama category, but somehow the author managed to keep the story-line pretty easy on the eye in that although the relationship between Zach and Tessa, was full of tension due to his lack of knowledge of being baby-Daddy to a one night stand he had a few years previously, it was kind of kept on an even burn due to the sexual tension that sizzled between the two of them right from their first meeting, even if at that point she actually thought he was someone else.
"You’re as refreshing in my world as I am in yours…"
You only have to add a cute kid into a story for it to in general lighten the mood, and Sophia did that with great effect. I loved Zach’s POV as he tried to negotiate the waters of having a daughter he didn’t know about and his attempts at getting to know the toddler were absolutely adorable.
These two females were like riptides… They’d snuck up on him, grabbed hold, and dragged him under.
Tessa is the Yin to his Yang, in that where Zach is a very laid-back and go-with-the-flow, commitment free kind of guy, everything in her life is planned with precision, her responsibilities are many and her commitments are longstanding, but they worked in-spite of all that, the sexy-times were diverse and smoking hot, and this was a book I pretty much read in one sitting.
The rest of the Renegades family provides great secondary character involvement, and it was good to catch up with a few of them as this story played out. I hope that the author has a few more books in the works for this series in general, it’s one that always brings a smile to my face when I get the opportunity to read more from it.
I didn't even read the synopsis when I agreed to review this; knowing that Skye wrote it was enough for me, and she once again reinforced why she is one of my favorite authors!
What I loved the most about Riptide was how real the characters were. There was no drama, no back-and-forth of "well I want to lean into his touch, but I won't" kind of nonsense. I could easily see this story playing out as if it were really happening and not a work of fiction. And that's true about every Skye book I've read so far. And I LOVE it!
HOLY SMOKES! True to form, Skye wrote one steamy book. This one was a little different from the rest, though. Not to spoil, bu the initial source of the steam created an early-on misunderstanding that I couldn't wait to see how it worked out!
This book deals with a family dynamic I had never read before, and I was very intrigued by the plot. While, in my opinion, some authors do better at writing children than others, I felt Skye did an excellent job of using Sophia to add a positive and interesting element to the story.
The ending was absolutely beautiful, and I got to catch up with members of the Renegades I met in previous books (not necessary to have read previous books to enjoy this one, but believe me, you're gonna want to read the others!)
(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)
