In this intense and exhilarating New Adult series debut, a hotshot snowboarder and a vulnerable rebel with a cause try to let go of the past—and find a future in 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 reckless 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 high society, she’s no Southern belle—and she’s not shy about being miserable in frozen, godforsaken Park City. 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. Following that terrifying encounter, the last thing Ophelia needs is a boyfriend—especially one as rich and arrogant as Z. But Ophelia soon discovers that he isn’t what he seems. If anything, Z may be even more damaged than she is.

Tormented by their pasts and feeling alone in the world, Z and Ophelia find a connection unlike any they’ve ever known. But with Ophelia hiding the details of her life in Louisiana and Z’s death wish reaching terrifying new heights, their relationship seems to be going downhill before it even begins—unless they can find the strength in each other to trust, grow, and love again

Pro snowboarder Z Michaels has everything. Money, looks and a loyal set of friends he can count on. The problem is he is still haunted by his traumatic past with his family. His father has abandoned him and left him with a huge trust fund. He goes around snowboarding and banging snowbunnies. He also is a huge adrenaline junkie and his affliction to pain isn't helping that.
He stumbles upon Ophelia, a barista at the local lodge where Z and his friends practice. She is the only woman to stand up to him and not fall for his charm, which then leads him to find her very enchanting. Little does he know she is the only one who can help him deal with his issues, his past and accept what has happened and move on.

Shredded was an awesome read! I absolutely loved it. Tracy Wolff reels you in with hot guys, adrenaline junkies, and a lotta powder! I am not a snowboarding fan but this book was so well written I started studying up on it and actually searching the tricks she mentions just to get a feel of what was going on in the book. I can't wait for the third installment which I'm hoping will be Cam and Luc's story.
