So I’m slightly obsessed with Tracy Wolff, for me every time I pick up one of her books, I know I am going to have a good time. She just writes characters I love, and more than that she writes a wide range of characters so there’s something for everyone. Anyway this is, I believe, the last book in this series, and I have loved reading the Extreme Risk books, and I have to say I was super excited for Cam’s story. So far up to this point we have gotten to have all of the guys of the group find love, but it was so time for the one girl in the group to find her love as well. So Cam, if you have read the others books, used to have a huge thing for Z, and when the book starts she had already had a one night stand with Luc (her best friend) and the two of them are well not communicating, like at all, which is kind of impressive considering they are always together. Needless to say Cam misses her friend. The thing with Cam is that I liked her a lot, I mean I had for the entire series, and she does her best to show and tell people how she feels about things; I mean she tries to talk to Luc about their problems and she definitely tells her family how she feels about her gone for seventeen years Mom. I loved that she tries, […]

It’s no real secret to anyone that I am a crazy big fan of Tracy Wolff, especially her new adult books. I love her writings and the characters she creates. I read the second book in the series long before I got around to reading this one, so I have to admit I had some foreknowledge going into the book, which I think may have made it a little bit less suspenseful for me as a reader, but it was still a really enjoyable book to read. I don’t know if snowboarders are really athletes that I gravitate towards, maybe it’s because I have never really been around snow, or because I haven’t really known any snowboarders in my life, but I tend to gravitate towards baseball players and like boxers, so this was definitely a new thing for me, and I am so not up on the lingo, which actually worked out okay because Ophelia so wasn’t up on the lingo either, so we got to learn together.  I don’t think either of the two characters really stood out above the other, normally for me as a reader, I end up loving one character a little bit more than the others, what can I say, I play favorites. But in this book neither Ophelia or Z stood out above the other. I liked them both, but I don’t know if I fell head over heels with either. I honestly thing that the two of them work as well as they do […]

Ah the story of a broken man. I absolutely love the story of the broken man. I think because the stereotype is so often that women are the ones who are broken and need to be put together by a man, so I love when books so off that anyone can become broken. This book involves snowboarding, which I am, well, let’s say not familiar with the sport. I was a little worried that the book would be filled with lingo that I didn’t know, and while there was a lot of snowboarding talk, the author did a great job of explaining what everything was, so I didn’t feel confused at all throughout the course of the book. Ash’s parents died in a car accident while on there way to watch him compete in the lead up to his making the Olympic team, and his brother was paralyzed in the accident. Suddenly Ash gives up snowboarding, is responsible for his fourteen year old brother, and is such a changed, broken, and guilt-ridden man that he is hardly recognizable. I really felt bad for him. Throughout the entire book, he’s in such a bad situation, that I think anyone could emphasize with. There are moments when I really wanted to shake him though, he is dealing with such a hard thing, and he is absolutely doing the best that he can, but he makes decisions for everyone else based on what he thinks is right without ever consult anyone, specifically with […]
