    Description

    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.

    Great book - fabulous narration!

    After a relatively short time in publishing lesfic, E.J. Noyes has quickly become a go-to favorite of mine. From the Ask, Tell series to Alone, to Turbulence, to this work, her subject matters vary widely - keeping things interesting - and her first person narrative pulls me deeply into her stories. Of all her books so far, I probably considered Gold my least favorite. Like in the way when you have a plate of your favorite delicious cheesecake options and you have to choose which one you are going to devour first. Then she releases this audiobook performed by Abby Craden and DAMN - it's SO GOOD - and you have to re-think that! Abby just has a way of elevating an already good story into a great one, or an excellent story into a fabulous one. What a talent! She makes me melt, swoon, cry, laugh and exclaim, "JEEEZUS!" during deliciously intimate love scenes and God knows E.J. excels at writing them! I think I'm going to have to start considering my feelings about E.J.'s books like I would my own children (if I had any - lol) where they're all my favorites for various reasons. My God - how can you choose?? If you could only get one format of this book, I would go with the audio. It's just fantastic!

    This book does NOT disappoint

    I have been binging on all the audiobooks I can find by Noyes and Craden and so far I have not found one book that is not close to spectacular. In my opinion, Noyes is one of the best authors in this genre and Abby just adds magic ;)

    Excellent!!!!

    When I read this book a year ago, I rated it 5*. I wish I had more stars to give the audiobook version. E. J. Noyes is an incredible writer, Abby Craden is an incredible narrator, and the combination of the two works perfectly every time.

    After an accident brought an end to her career as an Alpine skier, Aspen Archer became a ski instructor, losing herself in the sports she loves despite not being able to compete anymore. On holidays in Australia, Cate Tierney hires Aspen to give lessons to her daughter Gemma, then for herself. The attraction between the two women is instant. Cate is everything Aspen wants in a woman: smart, beautiful, kind, and a mother to a clever and sweet kid. Cate’s feelings are just as strong but she comes with baggage (who doesn’t?) and is wary of asking too much from Aspen, who is a few years younger than her.

    Pain, whether physical or mental, is a recurring theme is E. J. Noyes’ books, or, more specifically, the way her characters deal or do not deal with that pain. How they grow from it, with it, away from it. How they conquer it. In Gold, Aspen is living with physical pain from her accident and with anxiety and panic attacks that probably go back to way before that. Cate is recovering from an abusive relationship. Both are scared of themselves, of not being strong enough, and of not being able to be there for the other. What makes Noyes such a great writer (among other things) is her ability to always hint at hope, making the reader root passionately for her characters, feel optimistic even in the darkest times.

    E. J. Noyes is also one of those writers who completely stump me and my review-writing skills. Nothing I write will do her books justice. I have so much respect and love (yes, love) for her words that mine fade, as if they weren’t worthy of coming so close to the sun. So I’ll leave it at what I wrote in my first review: read (or listen to) this book. It’s good. It’ll make you feel good.

    Beyond topnotch

    One of EJ Noyes' best. So many emotions. The avalanche segment was outstanding. I had to stop for a minute and catch my breath because it is so real. Oh and the passion and sensuality....off the charts. Work of art. Ms. Crayden's talent is limitless.

    Enjoyed this quite a bit

    This story was engaging, with good emotional depth for the characters, a fun background of high performance skiing and good plotting. I have only two quibbles. One is that early in the book, it seems almost as if a (small) section was removed, we missed a beat between two of their meet ups. I had a 'how did we get here?' moment. It was small enough that I could interpret my way to it, but it did pull me out of the story.
    The second is, and I know I'm not the norm here, but there were too many sex scenes. They were well written, but they also weren't necessary.
    Those two bits aside, I did greatly enjoy this book, and consider it one of my better lesbian fiction listens. Ms. Craden was her usual excellent self.

    Good but...

    I love Abby Craden reading everything but that Australian accent impersonation was more like South African crossed with English Cockney. A little grating (actually, it was terrible) but luckily there wasn’t too much of it and I still enjoyed the story.

    Good listen for calm evenings

    Abby always does a spectacular job narrating, so she deserves 5 stars. The story itself was not too bad, but I have never gone skiing or snowboarding, so the main subject matter might have not been on par for what I am used to. The ending of the book was my favorite and I know I will continue to buy those by E.J. Noyes!

    Tolle Leserin, Geschichte ist solide

    Autorin und Leserin sind meiner Meinung nach ein unschlagbares Gespann, auch wenn die Redewendungen und Wortwitze sich nach einer Weile wiederholen. Die Geschichten sind weder extrem vorhersehbar noch außrrgewöhnlich originell, was dem Hörgenuss jedoch überhaupt kein Abriss bereitet. Dafür sorgt wie gesagt schon die Leserin. Es ist in der Tat eine "gute Unterhaltung" mit audible

    Very mixed..

    *careful.spoilers ahead*

    ..well.. first the good things. The narrator is great. I really liked the main protagonist Aspen. I am a huge nerd too, so I was really along for the story. The author is very good and I already read other stories, and she knows how to write a person. I enjoyed the learning to know phase of the story and how Aspen connected with Cate and her daughter. Maybe I expected something else in the middle of the book. And that is my problem with it..
    Of course there must have been some break and something for the characters to grow but I found the way Cate handled it was terrible. Yes, she was hurt in the former relationship and had trust issues, but should have worked on them too! She was very hurtful to Aspen and that spoiled the story for me so much. Especially because she came out of a terrible toxic relationship with a narcisist, she should have been aware of not stringing someone along and using them, just to dump her and put it all on Aspen. It was all about her and how she wanted things and I wasnt really having it.
    When you can overlook that, the book is good. So I just didnt like the love interest :P

    Another wonderful story by E.J. Noyes

    There are really no right words to describe how E.J. Noyes gets me with every story. Alone is still my favorite. But Gold comes very close to it. She describes all the feelings so incredibly well and beautiful that you feel like you’re a part of the story. I‘m already looking forward to the next one.
