I’ve made it this far and I’m not about to slow down now, in fact I’m ready to start breaking some records. With my junior year of college quickly approaching, I know it’s time to step it up a notch if I want to run professionally after I graduate. Hoping for a race day breakthrough, I wonder if it’s actually a mental barrier holding me back and if so, how am I supposed to confront what I can’t see? Letting my past be my guide, both on and off the trails, I listen to my heart and finally know what it takes to win it all… trust. In Jace and myself.
I want Pepper back. Anyway I can have her, however she will take me. I’m reluctant to bulldoze my way into her life, having already crushed her once (okay, probably a few more times than that) before, but I’ll do whatever it takes. I just need to remind her what we had- what we have, and what’s at stake, but first, I’ll have to get her to listen to me. What happens if I’m too late and she crosses the finish line without me?
Title: Pepped Up Forever
Author: Ali Dean
Narrator: Stacey Glemboski
Genre: YA/NA, Sports (Running), Second Chance
Standalone: Not really Story ends but you should read the earlier books first
Part of a Series: Book 5 of the Pepper Jones series
POV: Pepper and Jace
Steam Level: Minimal, fade to black
Pepper Up Forever starts two years after the events in Pep Talk and both Pepper and Jace have changed. Pepper is harder and more closed off while Jace isn’t afraid to show his hand and be open with Pepper. I really liked having the addition of Jace’s POV. I like seeing how these characters have grown and changed throughout this series. The underlying themes of introspection and relying on friends to talk to and encourage each other runs strong throughout this series. I like that Ali Dean is not afraid to deal with some of the harder themes. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Pepper and Jace.
I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsessions. This is my honest and voluntary review.
