What I Rated It
What It’s 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.
Wilder. I never thought I would fall in love with a bunch Jagger 3.0s (Flight and Glory Series reference also by Rebecca), but here I am, loving Paxton and looking forward to the rest of the Renegades.
If you love the idea of thrill seeking X Games characters then this series will be for you.
If you love the stubborn and strong characters masked as wallflowers…this series will be for you.
If you love a really really REALLY surprising plot twist…one you won’t see coming. THIS BOOK WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD.
Paxton. Wilder. Two names. Two different personalities. One body. He is the biggest daredevil you know times about three or probably eleven to be more accurate. Wilder is anyway. Paxton is passionate, tender, protective, and downright romantic. He will melt your heart. But who is Paxton Wilder in the whole? He is hands down the most driven character I have met to date and pursues what he loves with tenacity and relentlessly. He is all in. All the time.
Leah Baxter on board for the experience…and to be Paxton Wilder’s tutor. All while she gets throttled into watching, and sometimes participating, into the Renegades’ world. This trip is also about letting go and moving on. And just maybe Paxton Wilder can help her with that.
The tidbits of the world they saw while on shore, the intense scenes (sports and non sports related), and the supporting characters will have you devouring this book. This book is the total package. Rebecca’s writing is always top notch, but this one goes above and beyond with the amount of research turned to details in this book.
