Blog Tour, Review, Playlist & Giveaway: Carry Your Heart by Audrey Bell

Title: Carry Your Heart
Author: Audrey Bell
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance 
Purchase Links: Amazon ~ B&N

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? 

Rating – 3.5 Stars!!
Cover – 4.5 Stars! Love the color contrast.
Steam Factor – 3.5 stars 
Ending – Not a cliffhanger but the story isn't over

Pippa is emotionally and physically damaged from her past. While time healed most of her physical damage she couldn't seem to get past the emotional part. Until her old Coach pressured her into training again she was determined to put it all behind her. On the way to begin her training she meets Hunter who pisses her off and yet she can't help but feel drawn to him. 

Hunter is a jerky, arrogant womanizer on the outside because he is broken from his own problems in the past. He butts heads with Pippa and she makes his blood boil but he can't seem to stay away. Once his armor cracks you get to see the sexy, sweet, tender side to Hunter.

Audrey wrote a emotional but sweet portrayal of Pippa & Hunters journey in overcoming their past and trying to make something of their future. It was very well written and keeps you engaged until the end. Although the romance was left in a place that doesn't rip our your heart the story is far from over. I am very curious to see what Audrey has in store for us next.
