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 is just proof of why I love Rebecca Yarros. She takes you on an adventure and at the same time can provide a sweet romance with a little bit of angst and suspense that is guaranteed to get your heart rate going.
Paxton Wilder is the leader of the Renegades. He lives for the rush and excitement that doing extreme sport stunts that him and friends perform. Doing the School at Sea program will allow him to do stunts all over the world and be able to finish college. That’s where Leah Baxter comes in. In order to pay for the program, Leah is signed up to be a tutor and is assigned to Paxton for the year. Leah, who has been a recluse for the past couple of years, is using this as an opportunity to come out of that with her best friend Rachel. She definitely wasn’t expecting that within a few minutes of meeting Paxton she would become part of his stunt.
I absolutely loved this book. With Paxton we get guy who lives for the dangerous, while Leah is almost content in staying in her comfort zone. The attraction between the two is there from the start, but I love that it is slow build starting with friendship. We find with Paxton, there are two sides to him. We have Wilder who plays to the crowd, and Paxton who is honestly is a smart, hard-working, thoughtful and passionate guy. Leah can definitely hold her own with him, and doesn’t let Paxton get away with anything.
As the story progresses, we find out just why Leah was handpicked to be Paxton’s tutor and I just have to say….plot twist. I amnot going to give anything away because I want you to read and experience with wild ride that only Wilder can provide. This defintitely got 5 stars as this a book that I would want to read over and over while wishing that I could experience it like its the first time.
