Title(s): Pepped Up & All Pepped Up
Author: Ali Dean
Tour Dates: August 11-15, 2014
ABOUT PEPPED UP:
Pepper Jones is ready for an epic cross country season. She wants to qualify for Nationals, and she’s
willing to do anything it takes to make it happen. She can handle long miles and hill sprints, but boys?
That’s an entirely different challenge.
Pepper’s never considered revealing her deeper feelings for her longtime friend, Jace Wilder. After all,
he’s got the personal magnetism and good looks to hook just about any girl in town — and he has.
Their friendship stands apart from high school social circles, and they’re both just fine with that (or at least they pretend to be).
That is, until running star Ryan Harding moves to town.
When it comes to running, Pepper’s goals are clear.
But when it comes to Jace and Ryan, it’s nowhere near as simple.
ABOUT ALL PEPPED UP:
Pepper Jones knew that being Jace Wilder’s girlfriend wouldn’t be simple.
But she didn’t predict just how many complications would arise from his past. Jealous girls?
That she expected. Family secrets? Not so much.
At least Pepper can always hit the trails to clear her head… except when it comes to racing.
The high expectations from her phenomenal cross country season haunt her, and she can’t seem to get
psyched up for track season.
Pepper’s junior year at Brockton Public is full of challenges on and off the track, but she’s not afraid to face them.
EXCERPT FROM PEPPED UP:
Zoe offers me a ride home, but Ryan jumps in, saying I’m on his way. I watch him discreetly for a moment in the car. His forehead is damp with sweat from dancing, and his blue eyes look soft and sleepy from the long day. When he glances at me, and smiles, showing off those adorable dimples, he looks so happy. And it all seems so simple with him.
If it wasn’t for Jace, there would be no question at all what direction things should go with Ryan and me. And what’s stopping me now?

WHERE TO FIND HER:
My Thoughts:*Though I received these books from the blog tour company in exchange for sharing my opinion, this in no way affects my thoughts expressed in this review*
First off, don’t these books sound awesome? Exactly! I knew when I read the synopsis that I had
to read this series. I am so glad I did! I love this new trend that seems to be slowly sneaking up on us with books that have a bit of an athlete type spin on them, and this one is one of the great ones. I’m going to be posting longer reviews of each book, but I have to say that over all this series is a solid 4 stars! I love the way the characters are written and I love the way the author just really knew how to tell a great story!
I found myself rooting for Pepper(love that name, haha!) and Jace the whole way. Through all the ups and downs and everything in between there was just something that really pulled me in with these two–I so want them to have a happily ever after! Do they? Well, y’all know Electively Paige is spoiler free! You’ll just have to grab these amazing books and find out!
