Overview

In the intense and exhilarating Extreme Risk series debut, a hotshot snowboarder and a rebel with a cause try to let go of the past—and find a future with each other.
 
Twenty-one-year-old professional snowboarder Z Michaels is the bad boy of Park City, Utah. He’s always had his pick of any girl in town—and on the competition circuit. But underneath his cool exterior is a young man in turmoil, trying to take the edge off tragedy by overindulging in sex and shredding the slopes. In fact, Z’s rash behavior is a thinly veiled attempt to blunt his emotional suffering with physical pain.
 
Ophelia Richardson isn’t like any girl Z has ever met. Though she’s from New Orleans, she’s no Southern belle—and she’s not shy about being miserable in frozen, godforsaken Park City. But after nearly dying in the same drag-racing accident that killed her boyfriend, she needs a place to heal, both physically and emotionally. The last thing Ophelia wants right now is a boyfriend—especially one as rich and reckless as Z. But Ophelia soon discovers that he isn’t what he seems. If anything, Z may be even more damaged than she is.
 
Feeling alone in the world, Z and Ophelia find a connection unlike any they’ve ever known. But their tormented pasts pull them in every direction, forcing their relationship into a downhill slide before it even begins—unless they can find the strength in each other to trust, grow, and love again.

    3.5 "Really, that did not just happen" Stars Shred

    3.5 "Really, that did not just happen" Stars




    Shredded is a story about pro snowboarder Z, and Ophelia, a young girl trying to start over after something horrible. Z is your typical alpha male, I can have any girl type character. But he is also broken due to something that happened when he was a kid. He has great friends that help him along the way, but it is clear that he is somewhat self destructive and does what he pleases. 




    The book starts with him going after the hot new girl working at the coffee shop, Ophelia. She is feisty and initially doesn't buy what he is selling and that only intrigues him further. Along the way he is protective and looks of for Ophelia and she decides maybe he deserves a shot, and perhaps she can get past old hurts and give this a try with Z. The only problem is he reminds her so much of her past and the hurt she experienced. 




    Shredded was a quick easy read. I have enjoyed other books of Wolff's in the past. This one was leaving me frustrated by the ending, and also wanting more throughout the story. I find that based on their pasts, Z and Ophelia were able to progress way too quickly in their relationship. I also was irked with too-many-of-these-type-of-phrases. Normally they are fine in a story, but there were just too many this time around. Finally the Epilogue, which by the way I am a huge fan of Epilogues, left me wishing it was never included. What the heck was that. I am totally frustrated with the ending. It came out of left field and just was there. Not very happy right now and honestly I am not even sure I want to read the next book. Uggh. I was coasting along just fine til that last line.




    Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Shredded is the first book in the Extreme Risk series by Tracy W

    Shredded is the first book in the Extreme Risk series by Tracy Wolff. This book is about a popular, professional snowboarder named Z. He is the talk of the town. Everyone knows who is he, and half the women have been in his bed. He is reckless and arrogant, but deep down he has a vulnerable side. He's had a tough childhood, and experienced things that no child should have to deal with. These experiences have made him into the kind of man that doesn't let anyone in close, and is the reason he doesn't do relationships.

    After a horrifying experience of her own, Ophelia moves to Park City to run from her past. Ophelia is likable for the most part – she is a sassy heroine with attitude. I will say though, that some of her stubbornness pisses me off toward the end. I was surprised that she hooked up with Z so quickly in this book, considering what she knew of “the bet”. She was surprisingly quick to let that issue go.

    Although I tend to like my books to have more sexual tension leading up to the main event, I liked her relationship with Z. They were good together and had some great chemistry. I loved the dual points of view because Z had so much going on in his head. I also liked Z's friends, well – except Cam. The other 2, I'm sure, will have great books in the series as well. I already know the next book in this series is about Ash. Speaking of which, there is a big cliffhanger at the end of this book but it doesn't really affect Z and Ophelia. It's a big set up for the next book.

    I agree with a couple of the other reviewers who say that the synopsis needs to be tweaked a bit. I wasn't aware of any “jealous rage” by her ex. Overall though, I enjoyed this book and recommend it to those 18 and over.

    I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. WOW, what a great story but the end will leave you breathless. It is full of emotional pain and heartache. Z, Ash, Luc and Cam are professional snowboarders. While Z tries to use pain to help him deal with his painful past, his best friends try to help him through it. Ophelia is the new girl at the ski resort and when Z sees her, he only has one thing on his mind. But she has heard about his man-whore ways and she is not interested. But she does notice that he is hiding something. When she realizes that is is pain, she can feel it because she is dealing with her own pain. While Z deals with his pain by using extreme snowboarding, Ophelia tries to stay away from him. But she is drawn to him. Will she give in to him and they help each other move on from the past? Will Z continue to torture himself to help relieve the pain? Can his friends help him to understand he is not alone? This is the second book by Tracy Wolff for me and I love it.  Can't wait for Shattered (book 2).

    An intense and emotional New Adult romance, Shredded was a fanta

    An intense and emotional New Adult romance, Shredded was a fantastic read. I absolutely loved this book! From the hot romance to the dark secrets, this book was amazing.

    Ophelia was a lovely heroine. She was realistic and likable. I loved how she was just not going to take crap from anyone. My only problem with her was that she tended to be a bit judgmental. But, she knew when to admit she was wrong. I ended up really liking her.

    Z was so sweet. His past has a horrible secret, once that haunted him and had him living with a death wish. So, he was reckless, impulsive, and prone to doing life-threatening stunts. But, behind all that guilt, he was a truly good guy who cared deeply for his loved ones. He was perfectly flawed and I adored him.

    The romance was wonderful. Ophelia and Z were so sweet together. I loved how, despite both of their pasts and both of their reluctance, they still fell for each other anyway. And, the chemistry between them was hot. Definitely some steamy moments.

    The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were a ton of tense moments that had me on the edge of my seat, due to Z's fondness for extremely dangerous stunts. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was a perfect wrap up for Ophelia and Z's story, as well as a fantastic lead in to Ash's story, which is coming up next in the series. Can't wait to read it!

    Shredded was a brilliant New Adult romance. I completely and totally loved this book! Every bit of it was wonderful. Romance lovers, this book is not to be missed.

    This book was completely intense.  The two main characters are both incredibly damaged by their past and the losses they've endured.
    At first I approached this as a NA novel but about half way through it became so enthralling and fast paced that the NA genre didn't even
    enter into the way I was reading this book.  The writing was so engaging that I felt like I was experiencing their pain right along with
    them.  Z was a really hot leading man and being damaged just made him that much more lovable.  Ophelia (absolutely love the name)
     is the perfect woman to put him back together while he in turn puts her back together too.  It's awesome to watch these two solitary
    characters work their way to becoming one.  You don't get the unrealistic feel that it's all going to be wine and roses in their future but
    you know that they will at least have each other when the going gets tough.

    PostFromMegan1

    Finished up Shredded, the first book in the Extreme Risk series by Tracy Wolff this week. I actually read this series out of order, if you remember I reviewed book one, Shattered a few months ago.

    Thankfully I don't think reading them out of order took anything away from the story, but I would suggest you try to read Shredded first. This book is written in duel points of view between our hero, Z and our heroine, Ophelia. Ophelia seemed realistic and as a character I could relate to her.

    While I really liked both our main characters, Z was certainly my favorite. I read a little bit about him in book 2, but wasn't sure if I would love him in his own book. Z just seems so cocky. Well I'm happy to say, Z is cocky, but I loved it. I think I loved him more in this book than I did Ash in his book. Z is just so protective and he falls so hard and fast, just the way I like my heroes.

    Tracy Wolff has a way of giving characters secrets then slowly giving the readers hints into what those secrets may be. Sometimes, those hints are painfully slow comings and what is suppose to be suspense and wonder just ends up annoyance. Shredded doesn't quite reach that level, but there were a few times when I just wanted to scream, "Tell us already!".

    I'm interested to see where this series goes, because the stuff with Cam is going to hit a head at some point and honestly I don't want her to end up with Luc, he deserves better. He deserves to find a hot wonderful chick to fall in love with and never think of Cam again. Then Cam can just go away... is it obvious I don't really like her. :) Alright, enough of me talking about this circle of friends as if they are my won. I'll let you read the series, starting with Shredded and decide what you think of everyone.

    Great Read That I Devoured In One Sitting!  4 ¿Turns and Stuff¿

    Great Read That I Devoured In One Sitting! 
    4 “Turns and Stuff” Stars!

    The Review: 
    This was a different kind of read for me. I don’t usually read sports related reads, not because I don’t like them, they’ve just never been a priority on my list. But when I read the blurb for this one and the hero was a snowboarder, I just couldn’t resist. And I wasn’t disappointed. This was a fast, sweet read with a bit of angsts thrown in to make it an all-around fun read. I loved the mountain scenery, I enjoyed the characters and I really liked the story.

    Story/Characters... 
    Ophelia has moved from New Orleans to Utah after a heartbreaking past that’s left her shaken. She needs to regroup and find herself once again and try to leave the events from a year ago, behind her. Working for her aunt and uncle at their ski resort, hooking up is the last thing on her mind, especially when notorious playboy with a streak of bad, walks in and starts hitting on her.

    Z is known for his risk taking “turns and stuff” on the slopes as he snowboards his way through competitions and has the potential to be selected for the Olympics. He’s also known for his playboy ways and one night stands. He and his friends are at the mountain lodge for the snow and the training but that doesn’t stop him from grazing the vast fields of snow-bunnies, taking a different girl to his bed every night and partying hard every chance he gets. He’s running from a tragic past, one he feels guilt for and numbing the pain and living it up are his exits. What he doesn’t expect is to find the beauty behind the bar so captivating and when she flat out rejects him, going so far as to pour coffee all over him, he’s intrigued and amused.

    Ophelia and Z rocked their scenes together. These two were smokin’ hot from the start with their heated looks and verbal foreplay. There wasn’t much in the way of sex scenes but there was enough sexual tension to captivate me and pull me right in. Ophelia and Z were fun and wild in their slow build towards a romance and I enjoyed every minute of it. The writing was smart, the scenes were sweet and fun and there was just enough angst thrown in with their pasts that it kept me glued to the pages, wondering where it was all going to lead. 

    Ophelia was a delight to read. She was strong and snarky and she was smart. She had standards and her character was challenging. I loved her interactions with Z and his friends. 

    Z was a hot mess. His past ate at him on a daily basis and he used partying and hook ups to numb the pain but what he really liked most of all was the adrenaline fueled risks he took on the slopes. This guy had absolutely no care for his safety at all and though the risks he took made him seem more alive and adventurous than most characters we read, it was also sad because you knew there was something dark lurking behind all that disregard for his life. He was testing fate and there was a deep part of him that didn’t care if he came out the loser.

    I loved how these two changed each other and found a solace in one another. Ophelia needed that connection again and Z needed someone to pull him from the dark corners of his heart and mind.

    I also loved the side characters. Z’s group of snowboarding friends rounded the story out and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

    Wish List...
    There were only two things that I really had a problem with in this book. I loved that the author tried to include the name of the book, shredded, in the verbiage the characters used, but wow was there a LOT of times it was used. To many, in my opinion. And though I enjoyed the snowboarding terms, learning what tricks were called, I had to look them up so I understood what was being said. This didn’t annoy me so much as pull me from the story a little so I could properly imagine what was being played out. 

    The Wrap Up: 
    All in all this was a great read. It was never slow and it kept me interested all the way through and I even got the butterflies a couple of times so that instantly gives it a higher rating. I’m excited to go on to the next book and see what happens after that heartbreaking ending. Ash’s story is next and I’m sure it’s going to be a doozie!

    NOTE: *Written for Craves the Angst Book Reviews*  Shredded is book one in the Extreme Risk series and is a New Adult, Sports Romance written by Tracy Wolff. In exchange for an honest review, I was gifted a copy from the Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept through NetGalley.

    This book amazingly sexy cover jumped off my computer screen and I had to have it. The storyline sounded like an adrenaline filled snowboard read. Then I opened the book and saw it was written in first person and that writing style is confusing to read for me. Ms. Wolff created such flawed inside and out characters, who needed someone to heal them. I wasn't able to finish the story, due to the first person writing style, so my score of 1 finger up and 4 toes should not influence any first person readers out there.

    Shredded, by Tracy Wolff, is one of those stories that breaks your heart and makes it a little bit stronger when she puts it back together again. Wolff takes devastating events and somehow shows the reader that there is life and love afterwards. The characters are super sexy, funny, flawed in the best kind of way and have you wanting more from each one of them. The relationships between these characters are well developed and the story line is quick paced and engaging. I have read other books from this author and I can say that I am a fan for life!

    Warning: Spoilers I received an ARC of this book from the Publi

    Warning: Spoilers

    I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.




    Z (whose actual name we never do find out) is a 21-year-old world-class snowboarder with self-esteem issues and a death wish. Granted, he's had some effed up stuff happen in his life, so maybe he's slightly justified, though the people around him aren't for the way they've enabled his behavior. Ophelia is an 18 or 19 year old who is just trying to escape her past following a fairly traumatic event. Ignore the part of the Goodreads story blurb that says "But laying low is her only option after her ex, a rich boy who couldn’t take no for an answer, nearly killed her in a jealous rage." Because that's so far off base in its implications that I'm not sure whoever wrote it even read past the first few chapters. Every other blurb says "But after nearly dying in the same drag-racing accident that killed her boyfriend, she needs a place to heal, both physically and emotionally." They are two very damaged individuals who haven't even begin to work through their own issues and are either going to find a way to help each other or both have cataclysmic melt downs.








    This is a book about a snowboarder so you rather have to expect some slang words. In this case, it was grommet that caused me the most difficulty. For the uninitiated, apparently this means a young boarder (the word originally applied to surfing). There are quite a few other words outside the common vernacular relating to the sport and/or culture, though those are either explained or easily inferred by context. I didn't really have an issue with the slang though. My issue is with the fact the author fails to realize or portray the fact that new adults are still adults. These characters seemed very immature. You'd expect at least a little bit of grown up behavior with the sort of backstories these characters have, but nope, zilch, nada. It is high school if not worse all the way. They seem to be attracted to the things in each other that are the absolute worst things they can look for in a mate. Plus, they spoke in a kind of exaggerated slang that I don't even hear junior high kids try to pull off. And if I never again read "As if" or casual use of the word "front" without meaning the foremost part or surface of anything, it will simply be too soon. I struggled through most of the book, snorting at all the ridiculous angst ridden young love tropes where magical hormones fill the air and twue love happens in less than a week, hits you in an instant, and makes you want to be a better person etc. They were just the same tortured bad boy with a heart of gold and sassy, damaged heroine who supposedly will not take any crap off the hero (though she does, repeatedly). They are cardboard cutouts of characters and there wasn't anything fresh or new to make them stand out or make me care, heck, I didn't even completely buy any chemistry between them. That is until the very end. So stop reading now if you aren't up for spoilers, just know this is a 3 star book..............................................................
























































    I hate to spoil but this is what saved this book for me. They actually have a grown up conversation about their issues, it's obliquely intimated that love isn't going to magically fix their issues, they make a commitment to actually communicate, and Z seeks professional help from a therapist, which is what he's needed for the past decade. Not only that, but Z starts realizing that he's getting help not just for Ophelia but for himself too. So, I guess in the end this works fairly well as a New Adult novel, albeit at the very, very start of that journey. Fair warning on one other thing though, there's a really heavy cliffhanger to set up the next book in the series, though since it doesn't specifically involved Z or Ophelia, that to me isn't so much a cliffhanger as it is a teaser for the next book.

    I started this book and wasn't sure what i expected. The terms threw me off and I had no idea wth they were doing...something about snowboards and circly things in the air LOL. Thank god I watch the Winter Olympics and can at least envision something related to what they may have been doing.
    With that said - this book was great and the story different from anything I have read before. Yes it has the alpha male and the young girl but because i don't know anything about snowboarding it was something new for me.

    The characters are terrific and so strong. Luc, Ash, Cam and Z. I loved them all but have a slight reservation for Cam - chick needs her own book so she can redeem herself in my eyes. I don't know why but something about her is slightly rubbing me the wrong way lol

    This book is about Z and the things he deals with on a daily basis and his mysterious past. Meeting Ophelia is not what he had planned and the way things work out is not what he had in mind for his life. She also has a deep past that comes out.

    The twists and turns and gut wrenching emotions are awesome and I like the way the story progressed but I do need to warn you...this book has a cliffhanger ending that had me yelling at the author (and laughing).
    Did NOT see it coming at all and then I was strung up and hung by my toenails with her laughing at me through Twitter. Enjoy that when you get to that part! Trust me, you'll side with me here lol
    Be sure you have book 2 ready *wink*....

    Needs a little work on finishing storyline. It just suddenly ends and leaves you hanging for next book. Unfortunately I don't know it she'll pick any of it up. Lot of waffling by both characters. Pretty much all the do in this book.

    absolutely loved this!

    This was a heartbreaking story to read what both characters went through. The hell they were put through and the blame they took for what happened. Both of them lived through tragedy.

    Z Michaels is a Twenty-one-year-old professional snowboarder. He is know as the bad boy of Park City, Utah. Ladies man with the pick of just about anyone he wanted. But underneath is a damaged man trying to escape the tragedy of his past. his extreme snowboarding helps with his guilt helps him deal with the day to day pain he feels.

    Ophelia Richardson is running from her own past tragedy. Laying low in park city is her only option. Her near death experience at the hands of her ex boyfriend who was a adrenaline junky drag racer. She isn't shy about not liking the extreme cold of Park City, Utah.

    Neither is looking for a relationship in fact its the last thing either wanted. But Both find it hard to stay away from each other. She isn't like the other woman that throw themselves at him. He is frustrating but sexy with a sweet side not everyone gets to see.

    I loved Z damaged and all! Ophelia is strong and sassy she isn't scared to say what she is thinking. The chemistry between the characters is amazing! This is a sexy but heartbreaking read. I love how Z's friends are so loyal to him. How much they all mean to each other.
    This is a must read you will connect with the characters. This story pulls you right in from the first chapter. Review Done by Kathryn Adair

    This was a good book, and I liked Ophelia. She was sassy and strong, and I like that she stood up for herself. I don't like books where the girls fall all over the male lead no matter what he does, and I don't like; for lack of a better word, man-whores, so I was reticent of Z, but luckily there wasn't too much of his actual man-whoreness. Z grew on me, and I was rooting for him in no time. I liked taking a glimpse into the snowboarding world, and I liked the back drop of the ski resort. I would have liked a bit more in the end, but I'll read the next books in the series in hopes of more glimpses of Z and Ophelia. All in all I enjoyed reading "Shredded"; it was a quick read and kept me interested.
