The “I Won’t Promise I’ll Ever Be Perfect” Scene from Skye Jordan’s Ricochet

Ricochet by Skye JordanRachel and Ryker’s firecracker chemistry is the basis for the romance in Ricochet by Skye Jordan. Ryker, a bomb specialist stationed in Afghanistan, needs to have direction and a purpose. He’s currently back in the States for a month at the demand of his CO, who required that Ryker return in the aftermath of a disastrous mission that had horrific results. This return is unwanted, though, and he soon joins up with the Renegades, a stuntman team, as their bombing specialist in order to keep himself focused on a purpose.

Flashbacks to Afghanistan reveal the source of Ryker’s PTSD, which is poignant and heartbreaking. Jordan captures raw, vulnerable moments from this typically stoic alpha-male in which he is confused, upset and battling an invisible enemy. Ryker’s mind can flip at any moment, and sometimes not even Rachel can talk him back.

Just a bad memory. You’re safe. Everyone’s safe.”

Of Ryker’s five-man EOD unit, only one survived the bombing. This flashback gives us vivid details regarding the catastrophe.

[And an idea of the comforting that will happen later...?]
