About this ebook

Adam has had his heart ripped out before. But there's nothing he and Lindsay haven't been able to overcome. Nothing that could tear them apart... until now.

After nine years of being back on the competition circuit, Adam is at the top of his game in the surf world. But troubles at home have forced him to consider retiring earlier than expected.

With the possibility of a final competition in his future, the pressure is on Adam to perform; to leave on a high note. Long hours practicing at the beach and weeks away from his family at exotic locations only causes more turmoil between him and Lindsay. Until finally, the stress reaches a boiling point and someone gets burned.

Ripped is a stand-alone spin-off of the New York Times bestselling Shattered Hearts Series.

6 out of 5 RIPPED-FOR-YOUR-PLEASURE stars! Surf's up, ladies! ;) THIS!!! THIS BOOK IS A DREAM COME TRUE! OLIVE RIPPED SO MUCH! Adam is my very first love from Cassia's bestselling Shattered Hearts series and Ripped shows you exactly why he remains one of my all-time favorite book boyfriend, husband and father! I've been dying for his book since Pieces of You and you have no idea how FREAKING ECSTATIC I am when I found out about Ripped's release! I'm still high from reading this phenomenal book and nothing can wipe off that huge ass smile across my face! :D At 32, Adam is sexier than ever and has matured into a helluva fine man, husband, father, friend, son and surfer! His corny jokes are hilarious and his bedroom moves... OH GOD, I just want to have his babies and scream BEETLEJUICE all night long! ---> You have to read the book to get this joke. I'm having cramps from laughing and clenching my you-know-what ;) Yes, it's THAT steamy!!! But more importantly, Ripped is a heartfelt story of Adam and Lindsay's struggles with marriage, family, pregnancy, career and friendship. Adam's beautiful heart and unconditional love for his wife, children and surfing will touch your soul. This book is everything I hoped for and more! My life is now complete! *dies from a brain massage and goes to heaven* ---> Another joke from the book. Lol! Cassia is at the top of her game and does it yet again! Ripped is my new favorite book of the year and as soon as I'm done penning this review, I'm going to re-read the entire series again for the hundredth time! #TeamShatteredHearts With that, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the book ♥ "Learn how to fail gracefully, then get up and try again." p.s. Ripped is a standalone, full-length, spin-off novel from the Shattered Hearts series. The book ends with a HEA and no cliffhangers. I highly recommend reading the entire series in order to best appreciate these amazing characters and their sensational life journey!

There are no words to describe how elated I was to see this book was written. I was #TeamAdam from day one. I was crushed when Claire and Adam ended. However, I grew to realize it was the right thing and couldn't be more happy with the direction their lives went. I was only saddened by the lose of Adam in the story line. I've been waiting for this book and hoped and prayed it would make it to my greedy little hands one day. My heart was so happy to have another taste of Adam and all his corny jokes and to hear about what kind of husband and dad he became. Although he had his issues(we all do) he was such a loving and kind man. I'm so happy to finally read his story but so sad it's over already. I love you Adam!!!! #TeamAdam&Lindsey and #TeamChris&Claire I feel complete now. :-)

Adam is back on top of the surfing world and loving his life with Lindsay and their adorable girls. As the pressure from staying on top mounts, Adam and Lindsay get some unexpected news. Life is changing and now he is contemplating stepping away from the sport that he loves for family. With each new competition, things seem to get more out of Adam's control as their relationship is tested again. Ripped is Adam's story as he is at another crossroads in terms of surfing and family. Ripped could be read as a standalone, but it will make more sense when read as a part of the Shattered Hearts series. Cassia Leo delivered drama, angst, heat, jealousy, and family in a way that did justice for fans of Adam and the Shattered Hearts series. *I received a copy in exchanged for an honest review. 4.5 stars
