Review for Slashed by Tracy Wolff - 3 bees knees
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -
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 really like this series, so I had high expectations for this book, so I think that's why I felt a bit let down, and ended up giving it 3 stars; I just wanted so much more for Luc and Cam's story. I was absolutely loving Luc for most of the book, but when he has a bit of a freak out, and then how he acts during that time, brought him down some in my estimation. Also, a situation occurs in this book that I just can't stand, so that's another reason this book didn't completely work for me. The problems in this book are because 2 people won't tell each other their feelings, and they don't think they are good enough. I felt like there wasn't really much resolved in this book; it probably needed to be longer, and I felt like the ending was lacking. Cam wasn't my favorite in the previous books, but I liked her well enough in this book. I like that she's a tough girl, but she doesn't go over the top with it, and I like that she stands up for herself. I like the addition of the characters from the previous books, and I like the snowboarding setting. Also, the chemistry was off the charts between Luc and Cam, and their scenes together were hot. I did like this book, and I'm glad I read it because I did want Luc and Cam's story, and I hope we get more of it in the next books in the series. I know it'll be just glimpses, but I definitely want more for them. I look forward to reading the next books in the series!
