Champion skier Pippa Baker lost everything in the avalanche: her boyfriend, his best friend, and her will to win. After a year of grief, she returns to competition.

She finds more than buried memories and steep slopes in Utah. She finds Hunter Dawson, a heartbreaking daredevil with the gold medals to prove it. And she finds that his reputation doesn’t stop her from falling hard, and that her heart might not be as broken as she once believed.

But, Hunter has scars and memories too—scars that make him believe falling in love might hurt too much, scars that make him run.

Pippa knows how much love hurts when it’s gone. Will she stop herself before she’s in too deep? Or will she let herself fall?
Carry Your Heart was a highly enjoyable read! I really liked the winter sports element in this book. I don't read very many books with a sports angle, but this one was very well written. I loved the main characters, Pippa and Hunter. Both have pasts that weigh heavily on them and have to find the strength to overcome them if they want a chance to be able to open up to someone else. These are the kinds of stories that I really enjoy, when the main characters have a seemingly impossible summit to crest to be able to open themselves up to loving another. These are always the really beautiful stories, and Carry Your Heart fits this perfectly.
