blurbA couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.

Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too.

About the Series:

RECKLESS is the first book of a trilogy series: Renegades.

The rough and ready stuntmen of Renegades are experts in the fine art of death and destruction on the big screen. The best of the worst.

When it comes to tearing it down or blowing it up, no one can do it better, faster or with more flare than a Renegades’ bad-boy on a mission. When it comes to pleasing a women, no one can do it with more intensity or eroticism than that bad-boy with the need.

And while women come hot and fast for the sexy Renegades, holding on to the right woman may be the hardest stunt they’ve ever had to pull off.

0164c-6excerptAll the muscles of Jax’s rigid chest and abdomen pressed against her back. His hips rode hers a little high, even when she wore four-inch heels, making his erection curve into her lower spine, rub the top of her ass.

He lowered his mouth to her ear. “Not one of your measurements was true.”

She tightened her fists, digging her nails into her palms. “You sure didn’t fudge on yours.” God she needed him inside her so badly, she was trembling. “But I still feel the need to…verify.”

“You’ll get your chance, baby, no worries there. But I don’t have time to fuck you properly right now and there is no way in the fiery pits of hell I’m going to rush a goddamned thing with a catch like you.”

He had to be joking. His cock was a damn rod of burning steel. “Jax—“

“Tell me why you lied, Lexi.”

He released one of her breasts, his hand sliding down her abdomen. The touch of his fingers on her skin was electric. They slipped beneath the band of her skirt and Lexi’s breath caught. Muscles tightened with nerves and need. But he didn’t touch her. He took the edge of her underwear between two fingers and just slid the satin back and forth. Back and forth. Until she thought she’d go mad…waiting, wanting.

She turned her head, her lips brushing the rough stubble on his jaw and whispered, “Touch me.”

“I wouldn’t want to distract you from your answer. Truth, Lexi.”

She groaned a breath. “The truth is that men are attracted to me for my…body.”

She almost said looks, but amended at the last minute. She wasn’t ready to turn on the lights and give up everything. Wasn’t ready to look this stranger in the eye and confront her reckless behavior.

“You’re a handsome man, Jax…” She couldn’t get a full sentence out without panting. “And in your business, you can’t tell me…you don’t know what it’s like to be seen only for what’s on the outside. Maybe, as a guy, it’s no big deal…but as a woman, it’s frustrating. And scary.

“We had such a good thing going with the texts…I didn’t want that to change. It was nice to feel attractive before you knew my body.”

“Sweet,” he murmured. His hips rocked against her backside. His erection, so wickedly erotic, so deliciously hot and thick, made her body crave in a way she’d forgotten she could. Her sex softened. Opened.

Lexi arched into one of his slow rocks forward, pressing the indention between the cheeks of her ass against his jean-covered cock. Jax dropped his chin to her shoulder and breathed out hard. The hand in her hair tightened into a fist as he growled through his teeth. His other hand released the band of her panties and slid across her stomach, a hot, solid weight.

“I’m going to ease your ache, Lexi.” He bit her earlobe gently. Soothed the spot with his lips. “But I don’t have a lot of time, so tell me what kind of release you want. Hard and fast? Fast and deep?”

She didn’t want to think. Didn’t want to talk. Sure as hell didn’t want to tell him what to do. She just wanted him to do what men did and quell this excruciating need. Besides, she couldn’t think straight. She was floating. Drifting in and electric storm cloud.

Lexi reached back, ran her fingers through his hair, as soft and thick as it looked. “What’s the difference?”

Jax’s hand stopped moving along her belly.

Lexi rose from her heavenly void wondering if she’d done something wrong. “What?”

“Does that mean you don’t care? Or were you asking?”

Growing frustrated, she leaned her head back, stretched to press her mouth to his neck. His skin was hot, the muscle beneath supple. And, oh, he tasted good. Clean. Male. “Aren’t they all the same? I’m dying here.”

A low, rough laugh rumbled in his throat and shivered beneath Lexi’s lips. He pressed a hand to her jaw and lifted her face to cover her mouth with his. And, oh, his lips were full and warm. He used them to savor hers, sucking and sliding. His tongue eased into her mouth in slow circles. By the time it met hers in slow, erotic, sexual strokes, Lexi was breathless.

When he pulled his mouth from hers to whisper, “Hold still,” Lexi realized she was rubbing her ass restlessly against his erection. “I’m going to give you hard and fast to relieve you. We’ve got all night to explore the many different kinds or orgasms that exist. And no, baby, they’re not all the same.”

He lowered his mouth to the base of her neck and tightened the arm around her waist, pulling her so hard against his body she felt every beat of his heart against her shoulder blade. The hand at her stomach slid beneath the waistband of her panties, and Lexi tried to wiggle into his touch, but couldn’t. Then he eased the need by pushing his hand low. She gasped in surprise and excitement. At the feel of having a man’s hand between her legs. A real man. The kind of man who made her hot and wet and needy. The kind of man who wasn’t afraid to take charge or give real pleasure.

The kind of man who could bring her entire business down around her knees.

The kind of man she should absolutely not be having sex with.

She covered his hand with hers. His wrist was thick, his forearm muscled. His intense strength suddenly, overwhelmingly evident. A shot of excited lust burned through her body.

“You like it?” he asked, voice rough. “Or you want me to stop?”

“Love it.” Lexi’s eyes closed. Head fell forward. She swallowed, the only thing keeping her from pushing his hand between her legs and using it to cut this wild need was her own mortification of doing so. “More. Please.”

Instead of giving her more, Jax turned his hand over, took hers and guided it back to the door handle. “Hold on, baby. You’re gonna need it.”

Sometimes fun, sometimes naughty. Always romantic.

I am a USA Today Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my more … sexually heated … works.

My Skye Jordan 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 even as Skye Jordan I’m just a happily ever after kinda gal. (Or, in some cases, happily for the foreseeable future.)

    I like that it seems like Lexi is a strong individual.


    • Hi Sue! Lexi is very strong. She’s been strong for a lifetime, so giving in to what she really wants and needs when that may destroy all she’s worked for is incredibly difficult for her. A very fun story to write.
