Shattered: An Extreme Risk Novel by Tracy Wolff

contemporary romance book


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff’s edgy, emotional Extreme Risk series continues with the story of a lost soul and the fearless beauty who inspires him to take a flying leap back into life.

Ash Lewis has poured every last ounce of his blood, sweat, and tears into reaching the very top of the professional snowboarding world—until the unthinkable happens. After the biggest competition win of his career, Ash’s mother and father are killed in a tragic accident. Unable to handle the idea of going back out on the snow to pursue the dream his parents shared with him, Ash feels that he has no choice but to walk away from snowboarding forever. Then he meets Tansy Hampton.

Wild, fun, and impulsive, Tansy has a different look and a new passion every week. As a cancer survivor who spent the past several years waiting to die, Tansy has a fresh perspective on life—even if she doesn’t have a clue about what she actually wants to do with it. But she’s determined to find out, and that means making the most of her time while she still can.

From the very beginning, their chemistry is intense. But while Ash can’t stop chasing the ghosts of what can never be, Tansy stays firmly focused on the possibilities the world holds for her—and for them. She’s already picked up the pieces of one shattered life. Now she’s determined to help Ash do the same.

My Thoughts:

Once again, Tracy Wolff has knocked it out of the ball park. I really like this series about snowboarders and the women they love. They are sharp, exciting, and oh-so-sexy. What more could you ask for in a book? And Ash Lewis is the perfect tortured hero, after losing his parents in an accident that nearly took his brother, too. There's a lot of guilt weighing on Ash's shoulders because his family was going to see him at a competition when the accident happened. As a result, Ash gives up the sport he loves to take care of his brother, but also out of fear. But then he meets Tansy and his life takes an incredible turn that the poor guy didn't see coming! Tansy is a spitfire and she gets things done, despite her own issues. She just makes things happen and when she goes up against Ash, he doesn't stand a chance. Add to that his friends conspiring against him to get him back in the game and that's all she wrote. This is a wonderful addition to the series and I hope there's more because I really love this group of characters!
