[Review]: "Slashed"

Slashed by Tracy Wolff
Publisher: Flirt (September 29, 2015)
Series: Extreme Risk, 3
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

Do nice guys always finish last? In the new Extreme Risk novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff, a burnt-out underdog and a vulnerable tomboy defy the pressure to be perfect and go after what they really want.

Bighearted and easygoing, Luc Jennings is falling behind in a family of serious overachievers. While he may be decent enough at snowboarding to turn pro and rack up some sponsors, he’s never topped any podiums—unlike his friends Z, Ash, and Cam. Luc’s always been head over heels for Cam Bradley, but she’s never seen him as anything more than a friend. Now, after years of coming in second, Luc can’t take it anymore—especially if it means watching Cam chase another guy.

Cam hangs out almost exclusively with dudes, and that’s fine by her. She’d much rather be shredding at the Olympics than primping in the mirror. Cam’s wildest dreams have a way of coming true—except when it comes to getting her longtime crush and best friend, Z Michaels, to notice her. Then her mother suddenly shows up after being gone for, like, ever, and Cam’s whole world comes crashing down. Desperate for a place to lay low, she turns to the one person who’s always had her back.

My Review:


I enjoyed Slashed. I liked that the heroine was a dedicated, successful athlete. I liked that Luc was a bit unsure of himself and his talent. I really liked that this series takes place in Utah; that doesn't happen often.


This is a friends-to-lovers story. These two have known each other since they were kids, but only recently did they have a one-night stand, which Cam ran away from. Now, they can't stay away from each other, though they're still unsure of where they stand in this relationship.



Slashed was a quick read for me, but I have no real complaints about it. I suppose the ending was a bit quick and too easily wrapped up; I personally would have liked to see that fleshed out a bit more, especially in regards to Cam's relationship with her family, and her future with Luc. Will I read more from this author? Of course! Will I finish this series? Hell yes. I love this sexy NA series and still need to go back and read the first book.


4 STARS!
