OUR REVIEW:

Shel: I don't think I've ever really read a character like Paxton Wilder--an X-Games medalist and total dare devil--and now all I can think about is how I hope to see more of him and Leah when the rest of the Renegades Series comes out. Court: Me either! Having read and loved Rebeca Yarros' series that included men in uniform, I didn't know what to expect with this one - but I loved how original the character's back story is. LOVED! 

Shel: I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed Pax; I think I was expecting an arrogant alpha douche guy but he was actually not that at all. He turned out to be this dedicated, smart, loyal person who was busting his ass to pull off something that could turn out really well or ruin him and his best friends/fellow Renegades livelihood. I also enjoyed how smitten he is with Leah--the person originally hired as his tutor who turns into a friend..and then something more. Court: I loved their group, and the hints of mystery that unveils as we go along. There is a lot to this story than first meets the eye, and I enjoyed learning more about these multi-layered people as each page turned. Which in turn may me read faster and faster and faster. I couldn't get enough. Pax and company is great, but I also really liked Leah as a character and related to her a lot! 

Shel: Their initial meeting was action packed and funny (and scary!) and their developing relationship was all of that with a whole lotta hesitancy, sweetness, and chemistry. I thought their banter was great and the respect they had for each other made me like them, each, so much. Throw in some mysterious goings on and secrets and untold stories from their past, and you have an action packed book. It'll be interesting to see how the rest of the Renegades try (and fail) to resist the love interest Rebecca Yarros is going to put in their paths; this is going to be a fun series, y'all. Court: Gosh yes! The beginning, since I didn't really know too much about the back story was just off the charts exciting. And really sets the tone for the rest of the book. I can't wait for more of this series to come out, and hope it does as soon as humanly possible because y'all we are ready! And I hope you'll pick this one up and get ready too! 
   
Synopsis
  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.
