Book Summary:


Bad boy Troy Jacobs is all about taking risks. As a stunt double for Hollywood’s A-listers, there’s no fall he won’t attempt. With one exception—women. Troy fell hard once, and it nearly broke him. Since then, he’s vowed never to trust like that again and he’s got everything under control. Until the woman who shattered his heart years before shows up on his movie-set.
Country music star Giselle “Ellie” Diamond learned long ago that sometimes love isn’t enough. When love got in the way of her goals, she made the tough choice to let go of happily ever after and chased the glitz and glamour of the stage. It may not be all she expected, but now it’s all she has. And with a worldwide tour on the line, Ellie needs one last gig to rocket her toward stardom: a high-profile role in a blockbuster film.
Passion sparks, and old feelings return. But while Troy and Ellie grow closer their problems from the past simmer in the background. And this time around, there’s more tearing them apart than just one star-studded career.

description

Relentless ~ [ri-lent-lis] ~ adjective
that does not relent; unyieldingly severe, strict, or harsh; unrelenting


This story was full angst, heartbreak and heat. It is the the story of two relentless souls that are given a second change.

Years ago Troy had his heart ripped out of his chest by Giselle. Now years later these two are brought back face-to-face by a movie they are both working on. They still harbor intense feelings for each other; feelings of regret, sadness and even love. Troy is looking for a way to finally move past the relentlessness in his soul and when the opportunity arises he takes it.

"He'd have one last chance to feel her again. Just feel her and release her. Feel her, release her and move on."

Giselle is trying to grow her name and finally become what she has worked tirelessly at for the past number of years. She has dreams of being a household name, to be secure in her future, to being able to pick and choose her next move. To do this she tries on a new sexy image and she ends up getting way more than she bargained for.

"Nothing has been the same since I walked away from you, like half my soul was missing." ~ Giselle

These two are something else, their feelings are all over the place and Giselle describes Troy the best; "You're like a psychotic yo-yo." Their second chance is a emotional roller-coaster full of highs and lows. They both have unresolved feelings and are not the same people they once were but their need for each other is undeniable.

"...being wanted by the one woman who knew every dirty little corner of his soul and still wanted him."

I really liked this book, it held a lot emotions but you didn't feel bogged down while the characters tried to work them out. Troy was all over the place but he had a lot to work out. Giselle still had some soul searching and personal growth to go through as well. While she has spent her time surrounded by people, she didn't really have anyone. The pace was good and I was drawn into this story from page one. In between the drama and their lives; was toe-curling heat. The one thing these two always got right happened when their clothes were coming off.

"Loved the growling, teeth-grinding, lip-licking, nostril-flaring, sweat-dripping signs of rising lust and need."

About the Author


Skye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.
And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.
Skye (aka Joan) lives on the central coast of California in the heart of wine country with her husband and two daughters. As often as possible, she retreats to a hotel with critique partners for a power-writing week where much drinking, laughing, and yes, even working, ensues. When she’s not writing, Skye goes to breakfast with her hubby, attends her daughters’ barrel races, and spends a lot of time with her own horse, Riddle…while her two dogs, Paxton and Indie, tag along. She also loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.

  1. Actually, I'm not a fan. However, I love the TV show Nashville and could see Clare Bowen (aka Scarlet) as Ellie.
