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 Thoughts: Slashed is the third book in Tracy Wolff's Extreme Risk series and is Luc and Cam's story. Luc and Cam, along with their friends Z and Ash are world class snowboarders. Luc has always felt a bit inferior to Cam, Ash, and Z, but really he's not. Not only can this bunch snowboard, they can wakeboard like nobody's business as well. Luc and Cam have always been best friends, and while Luc has always been secretly crazy about Cam, she has never admitted feeling the same way. Things get out of hand and cause a rift between them and they don't speak to each other for quite some time. When Cam's mom shows back up on the scene after being gone for years, the first person she finds herself going to is Luc. They soon find their attraction goes much further than friendship and the chemistry between them is smoking hot. Both are unsure about the relationship,however, as well as one another. Things escalate to epic proportions and feelings and misunderstanding are taken to a whole new level for Luc and Cam, forcing them to choose what is really important in their life.
I loved reading Luc and Cam's story. They had a lot to overcome, but their romance was definitely hot. I was especially happy to see Luc shine in this novel both in sports and in love. I enjoyed where Tracy Wolff took the relationship between these two characters, as well as integrating characters from the previous novels as well. Check it out.
