When you spend your life at the top, there’s only one direction you can go.
Pro alpine skier Aspen Archer’s downfall happened in the worst possible way—a career-ending crash on a gold medal run at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Aspen packed up her broken life, picked up her broken body and now hides in comfortable obscurity at ski resorts around the world, coaching tourists and ignoring her problems.
Cate Tierney knows who Aspen Archer is, but the last place she expected to meet the former Olympian was during a ski trip to Australia. Hurt by a past relationship, and with a teenage daughter to protect, Cate’s initial reluctance is quickly overcome by her intense attraction. But with Cate’s vacation ending in a few short weeks and Aspen’s aversion to staying in one place, can their encounter be anything more than a fling?
When Cate discovers Aspen’s secrets, Aspen is forced to face everything she’d been trying to forget. And everything she’d forgotten she wanted. Aspen already knows the route from start to finish doesn’t always go as planned. Now she needs to figure out how to get herself back on course for good.

E.J. Noyes has done it again <3
Once again, I have been swept into a world I want to be a part of by E.J. Noyes. I felt like I was there skiing with an Olympian!
On a more serious note, this book mentioned something close to my heart: interactions with bullies. As I’m writing this, it’s still Pride Month; If you’re being bullied and need help please call (in United States) the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

I’d like to give a shout out to Noyes wife, Phoebe for (as she puts it) not laughing at her when she mentioned wanting to write books. High five to you!
Seriously, every single one of her acknowledgements are just as entertaining as the books themselves.
Also, Noyes, if you’re reading this, I think it would be awesome if you could find a way to have all or most of your main characters from all your books meet. I was inspired to say that from watching all of the sub movies that lead to Avengers: End Game and that was a lot, a lot , a lot of movies! Your characters are all just too wonderful to not know each other and I see some options you’ve written in each of your stories to make it work beautifully. If a certain someone were to design a boot, patent it, and make some money on it, she could put some of that in stocks. What if a couple of surgeons who happen to be Vets went on a ski trip. The possibilities are there. It’s just a thought and who knows... you just might be the first to write one like that.
