Shattered by Tracy Wolff, review by Dee

Ash Lewis has poured every last ounce of his blood, sweat, and tears into reaching the very top of the professional snowboarding world—until the unthinkable happens. After the biggest competition win of his career, Ash’s mother and father are killed in a tragic accident. Unable to handle the idea of going back out on the snow to pursue the dream his parents shared with him, Ash feels that he has no choice but to walk away from snowboarding forever. Then he meets Tansy Hampton.

Wild, fun, and impulsive, Tansy has a different look and a new passion every week. As a cancer survivor who spent the past several years waiting to die, Tansy has a fresh perspective on life—even if she doesn’t have a clue about what she actually wants to do with it. But she’s determined to find out, and that means making the most of her time while she still can.

From the very beginning, their chemistry is intense. But while Ash can’t stop chasing the ghosts of what can never be, Tansy stays firmly focused on the possibilities the world holds for her—and for them. She’s already picked up the pieces of one shattered life. Now she’s determined to help Ash do the same.

Wow Tracy. Wow. Shattered is such a fitting title for this book. My heart was shattered with what Ash went through, with the life that Timmy had to live, with Logan's battle, with Ash's guilt, Tansy's scare. There is so much going on in this book. So many different battles being fought. Just so much going on.

 So many heart breaking prognoses. Though through this all that's goin on, Tansy and Ash have a beautiful relationship budding. He definitely doesn't want to accept it, but it's still there nonetheless.

One thing I really wish would've happened is I wish Tansy and Logan could have bonded with what they both went through; the way people treat someone who's hurt or sick. I wish that Tansy could have had the chance to tell him what happened, even if it had to be kept a secret. I also wish we could've found out who Tansy realized she is. What her style was.  Though I am really happy she moved on from the pity parties and grew from her experience.

I still wanted to know what style she ended up picking as her own. Though I can't think of a more perfect ending to the story than what we had. This was a spectacular book in this series. The series keeps getting better and better. 

I give this book 4.5 hearts

Book one in the Series is Shredded
