Check out my review of Shredded (Extreme Risk #1) I absolutely adored Shredded and the emphasis on snowboarding in this series. After the cliffhanger/lead-in at the end of Shredded, I couldn’t not pick this one up! Shattered is Ash’s novel and follows his life after his parents die and his brother becomes paralyzed in an accident on the way to watch Ash at a competition.

Her first assignment is to get Ash Lewis to agree to board one last time so the little boy, Timmy, can have his wish. However, it isn’t easy at all because Ash refuses to get back on a board.

And even if I wasn’t, the glimpses I’ve seen of him—of the scars on his body and the ones that lurk beneath his pretty-boy façade—scare the hell out of me. So that’s it. I’m grateful for what he did, but I’m done. Finished. I’ll dry his clothes, but then he has to go.” “‘Just because something bad happened to him doesn’t mean it’s going to happen to me, too,’ I tell her, because I have to make her understand. ‘Just because you think you’re invincible doesn’t mean you really are,’ she counters.” “Hell, she deserves so much more than me—a selfish prick who spends too much time playing around with his own fucking death wish. But that’s just too damn bad because I’m not going to give her up. It’s obvious she has ridiculously fucked-up taste in guys—present company totally included—so it’s not like I can turn her loose on the world and hope she ends up okay.”  “I can’t help wondering if there’s something pathologically wrong with me that the only two guys I’ve ever been interested in have been like that.
