I had no expectations about this book going into it, and I was pleasantly surprised! I loved it! Its a story about a snowboarder who is troubled and trying to forget his past, and a girl who is doing the same thing. He is attracted to her, but she is scared to do anything because of everything that she has gone through.
In this story you meet Z Michaels who is a famous snowboarder and he has quite a reputation with women. But he is broken in a way that makes your own heart break a little. And Ophelia, who has her own issues that she is trying to get past. I do not know anything about snowboarding so this was an education! I had to Google a lot of the terminology and slang. I loved the characters though. He was a hot mess, and she was too, but in a different way. I loved seeing how they were able to help the other, and how the relationship developed. It also helped that he was hot and tattooed (I am a sucker for that) My only question was about the main characters name. Z has to stand for something, but that is never addressed. I felt like this story offered more than the usual broken guy meets broken girl.
The end was a crazy cliffhanger that I did not see coming, and now I cannot wait until the next installment. I am guessing it will be awhile since this book is not scheduled to be released until February 4, 2014. I enjoyed this book immensely and I can't wait to read more from this author.
