New Release, Two reviews and Rebecca Yarros hits it out of the park!!

Wow, I got the chance to read not one, but TWO Rebecca Yarros books. These are the first two in her new Renegades series. New Adult novels. Both can be read as stand alones and these are books you'll want to pick up.

What Renegades#1 is about:
He’s Paxton Wilder.

Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades.

Five time X Games medalist.

The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program.

He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class.

But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t lose my heart first.

Six unlikely friends on a nine-month cruise with the Study at Sea program will learn that chemistry is more than a subject and the best lessons aren’t taught in the classroom…but in the heart.

My thoughts:

Rebecca Yarros delivers again! Loved the Flight and Glory series (see my other reviews), but this is so much fun. We’ve got our relationship-damaged and cautious heroine, Leah, assigned to tutor Paxton Wilder on a round the world classroom at sea. She has to do it to keep her scholarship. Wilder is, well, wild—an X-Games, stunt afficiando reminiscent of Xander Cage from Triple XXX in that he videos himself and crew do crazy stunts for online production. Wilder has his own investment in being tutored and keeping his grades up which is linked to inheriting family money to keep his crazy crew in business. The two could not be more dynamically opposite, which is at bit cliché. However, it works. Their story is poignant and sweet with highs and lows as he shows her how to live on the wild side and she shows him how to do a relationship by healing each other. Great read.

What it's about: 
The only heart he wants is the one he already broke...

He's Landon Rhodes.
The Renegade they call Nova.
Sinfully gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder.
Four-time X Games medalist—
Full-time heartbreaker.

They say a girl broke him once—
That's why he's so reckless, so driven, so careless with his conquests.
But I'm that girl.
They can call me his curse all they want.
He and I both know the truth—
He's the one who destroyed me,
And I'm not the sucker who will let that happen again.

My thoughts:
And I thought Wilder was great! This is a new top fav for me. Ah-maz-zing!  We knew Landon’s (aka Nova, short for Casanova) moment was coming after the first book in the series. We’ve got our hawt X-games snowboarding guru currently involved in filming a documentary with extreme stunts while participating in a study at sea program. He walked away from love two and a half years ago and has been on a non-stop sex marathon since. Then, enter the girl he left, Rachel, who’s stuck on this at sea program for another six months. Her plan was to ignore him, but he wants her forgiveness and to start over. Second chance love at its best. Highly recommend.

Thank you to the publisher for kindly providing an ARC for review.
