Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Skye Jordan brings you another steamy Renegades story + BONUS CONTENT!

When pro surfer Zach Ellis isn’t traveling the world-wide competition circuit, he works as a Renegade stunt double for the hit TV series, Hawaiian Heat. After years of tangling with the ocean, his body has paid the price. So when he gets a shot at a star role on the show, Zach’s all in. He celebrates the career opportunity by taking a chance on a woman who’s not his usual island-girl type, only to discover he can’t bear to let her go.
Tessa Drake belongs mired in legislation battles in Washington DC, not standing on the sidelines of a filming set in Maui like a wannabe starlet. But even more important than her law career, Tessa needs Zach Ellis’s signature on legal papers. Papers that relinquish his parental rights so Tessa can adopt the girl who already calls her mommy. When she discovers Zach has slipped out of town before she makes contact, Tessa takes solace in the sexy star of Hawaiian Heat. A man whose warmth and dazzling grin makes her Mensa-level IQ vanish into thin air.
After an electrifying night together, Tessa is horrified to discover just who rocked her world. Zach is stunned to learn he’s a father. And both find themselves caught in a riptide pulling them in the opposite direction of their dreams.

** This book contains BONUS CONTENT: A copy of QUICK TRICK, A Rough Riders Hockey Novel, is also included! **

Another MUST READ book in this series!

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)

I have to admit, I truly enjoy romance stories with children, especially when author can totally capture that spark and wonder that kids have which completely shifts an adults life. Sophia is a doll in this story but she’s not the only star. Zach is that fabulously sexy surfer that you droll over when you hit the beach. He’s worked hard to be successful in his career but he’s also lead that footloose and free lifestyle. Tessa has fought many challenges to become a successful attorney, she is straight laced and focused on taking care of the people she loves. She has to seek out Zach to terminate his rights as Sophia’s father. This relationship starts out with a misunderstanding which makes Tessa’s job harder but at the same time, allows both people to connect in an honest and real way. Now, can they find common ground for Sophia? This was so much fun to experience Zach and Sophia getting to know each other. I love that the other Renegades are always around, supporting and loving each other which opens up a whole new world for Tessa and Sophia. Truly another exciting, fun and sexy journey with one of the Renegades. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

I've missed a few of the titles in this middle of this series so I was not too familiar with Zach but he really won my heart with his nervous honesty and how he dealt with a situation that is difficult for the best of us. He's one of the most pure-hearted and sincere characters that I have ever read in a scenario such us this.

Parentage and child custody is such a delicate issue and in spite of being a surfer playboy, his only focus was making sure Sophia and Tessa stayed together. I did get a little ticked off at Tessa for getting so defensive at the end there when she catches him talking to the lawyer but he had every right to know where he stood legally. But all's well that ends well and this book has an amazingly sweet ending.

I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the author for voluntary review consideration.

I voluntarily reviewed a complementary copy from the author with no obligation.

I absolutely love this series. I love how you meet all the guys working with Renegades in the first book and that each subsequent story is about a different guy. And that in each story you still get to see all the previous books' characters. They are like one big happy family, and I love how they all interact and support one another.
In this story, we meet Tessa and Sophia. Tessa is looking for Zach Ellis, and when she finds him, she realizes he is far from what she expected. He is so much more than the surfer playboy she thought he was.
There are sparks galore and some super serious heat between these two, and there are some really gorgeous 'awww' moments when Sophia is added into the mix.
Loved this book and could have kept reading if there were more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional Roller-coaster that will keep you reading!!! May 20 2017

Anytime you hear that there is a Renegades book coming out, we know there will be Hot, Sexy Thrillseekers involved! This can definitely be read as a standalone, but who wants to miss out on the other amazing Renegades.

Zach Ellis definitely fits the requirements of a Renegade. He is a pro-surfer turned stuntman turned actor! He has a trifecta that makes him highly sought after! And throw in his big heart and he becomes irresistable! That is by most women.
Tessa Drake travelled to Hawaii to meet a man she has never met, but he holds the key to her future plans. She doesn't know how to get what she wants from him, but she is determined to get it done and go home as soon as possible.
Tessa and Zach meet and immediately hit it off. The connection and bond between them is so strong that they decide to explore it a bit further. Neither one of them expected it to get as tangled as it does.

This book follows true Renegade fashion and has a strong-willed love interest! But Riptide gives you so much more! Zach has to learn a lot about himself and put plans in motion. There is going to be laughs, tears, anguish, and as usual the Renegade family shenanigans!
Tessa truly loves the life she lives and Zach is only one more complication thrown her way. She tries to negotiate (like the great lawyer she is,) but it is harder to maneuver when the heart is involved.

The Renegades stories have evolved. While I still love reading Book 1, you truly can see how the family is getting more complex! It makes the characters that much more lovable and intriguing! I cheered for them, cried for them, and yelled at them when they didn't do what they should! It had all the "feels" that a lover of romance could want while containing a Fun-Loving Surfer Boy!!!
Can't wait to see who finds a place in our hearts next!!!

There are very few authors that make me want to drop what I am doing and go read their newest book. This is one of those authors. I got home from work last night and said hi to hubby then had to be pried away to eat dinner, granted I needed to charge my Kindle anyway but I didn't want to put the book down. Now I finished it at work, shhh don't tell anyone, and LOVED IT. I loved Sophia and Tessa; I have always loved ALL of the Renegade guys and their gals. But Tessa was special, she took on someone else's child as her own, she worked hard at her career to keep what she loved the most a little girl. I can't even explain how much I loved it, almost as much as I loved Jax and Lexi and I really loved Jax and Lexi.

Honestly, I don't remember much about Zach Ellis in the previous Renegades books, but that doesn't matter. The fact that this book is part of this epic series was enough to catch my attention.

Riptide has a little of everything. There's some hot scenes, and there's history. Zach discovers he's a father so making room for not just one, but two people is no easy feat. Can his career handle this? Can he handle this?

If you liked (or love like me) the previous stories, then Riptide is no different. The characters are well developed, and I love, LOVED how the Renegades family jumped in when one of their own needed support. I seriously hope this series never comes to an end!

I am so in love with this Renegades series. Besides the hot men, hardheaded women and the amazing erotism associated with them, this story had me on a whirlwind of emotions. My heart broke for Zach when he learned about his daughter. Trying so hard to accept the changes and becoming an over night father to Sophia. I just loved Sophia. She is an amazing 3 year old. I love toddlers at this age, they are so full of life and so full of curiosity of everything and about everything. Tessa tried so hard to be a perfect mother but sometimes life has different plans.
Congratulations to Skye J, the storylines were magnificently wrote and I just fell in love with another amazing story. ❤

The situation with Zach turned out to be completely different than what Tessa had expected, only have previously thought he had been a child hearted jerk to her best friend, but now she has to deal with a new reality involving the one person she loves most in the world.
I did feel the way Zach was slighted the first years of Sophie's life was wrong, but I hated the way he and his friends automatically thought he had every, and only him, right to Sophia. Tessa has raised her as her own, and to be so cavalier about taking Sophia away from her kind of ticked me off.
The last few chapters shifted the tide, leaving things in the only way that was right and with an HEA.
