Publisher's Summary

Pepper Jones is ready to start breaking some records. She’ll be a junior in college, and if she wants to run professionally when she graduates, it’s time to step things up a notch. This time around, she knows it won’t be accomplished by ramping up her training. While Pepper’s hoping for a race day breakthrough, she wonders if there’s a mental barrier holding her back, and if so, how is she supposed to confront it?

Meanwhile, Jace Wilder wants Pepper back any way he can have her, but he’s reluctant to bulldoze his way into her life having already crushed her once (okay, probably a few more times than that) before. More scenes from Jace’s point of view in the book shed a new perspective into the character Pepper fans love to hate, and hate to love, delving into those layers he’s only given glimpses of in the past.

The Brockton crew is growing up. Zoe and Wes. Jenny and Rollie. Lexi and Brax. Bunny and Wallace. Pepper and...?

It’s time to find out what Pepper’s happily ever after will be.

Oh Jace finally got it right!

What a great story! Jace really had me concerned in the last book, but Pepper was worrying me in this one. lol. Between the two of them, I'm not sure who was going to give me the biggest nervous breakdown. Pepper and Jace both had some serious growth in this series. Then there is the whole Clayton deal, which I was wondering about but it still threw me for a loop. Ali Dean has done a fabulous job with this series and I can't wait for the next book.

Jace's Evolution

At the end of the forth book I had a pretty good hate on for Jace. He'd done some really stupid crap in that book and coming back from those actions would not be easy. But he surprised me with how far he'd come and how far he was willing to go to make Pepper see that he was a changed man. the only man for her. Though i have to admit, if it'd been me, i'd have let him suffer a little longer! lol

I really liked that we got to hear more from Jace this go around. i loved seeing Jace's transformation from the way he'd been in the previous books. i love how strong and self assured Pepper is in this book. and i love the ending.

the writing was awesome. the narration was awesome. can't wait for the next and final book.

i received a copy of this book for free from the author for my honest review

I'm smiling again at the end of this book.........

Pepped Up Forever is the fifth book in this young adult/sports romance series, and it really needs to be read as part of the series. I was so sad and discouraged at the end of the fourth book, and I was nervous to begin this book in case I didn't get the ending I have been wanting for the couple of Jace and Pepper since meeting them in book one. The book begins almost two years after the ending of book four and much has happened for Pepper. She is amazingly strong and so much more self-confident. Thankfully in this book, we get more chapters from Jake's point of view, so I could see how much he has grown as well. He always had a darkness in him that kept him from fully opening to a relationship with Pepper. He seems to have finally realized how self-defeating this weakness is, and that he will make whatever changes Pepper needs to allow him back in her life and her heart. It was only through these chapters from Jace's point of view that I was able to trust him enough with Pepper's heart again, since I was as crushed as she when he hurt her in the past. Although my main focus in the book was on the drama and angst of the Jace and Pepper's relationship, there are also lots of fun interactions with the usual gang and plenty of lighthearted banter and funny escapades. If you have read any of the books in the series, listening to Pepped Up Forever is an absolute must.

Stacey Glemboski's narration is as fantastic as always. She narrates all the books in the series, and she is the perfect choice for this story featuring mostly young adults. Her performance is flawless, and her smooth delivery makes this already enjoyable story even better as an audiobook.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Love this series!

I have loved this series from the start, and watching the transformation of Jace and Pepper has been wonderful. I really loved this part of their journey for a couple of reasons. As a junior in college Pepper has set new goals for herself, and at this time in her life needs to learn and become intuitive. Ali Dean has picked up on all her cues, found her weaknesses and has let us watch Pepper mature into a wonderful young woman. As we have been involved with Jace too, we have seen him go from high school to college with goals in mind, troubled past and the fortitude to make change. I love it! It's a great story, let's us carouse with "our" friends to parties, see old friends and crazy ones and the best, to see Gran! It's so much fun, I can't get enough. And with Stacey Glemboski at the wheel with her amazing narration, she brings it all together with her impeccable voices, consistent from book to book, giving us that community feel as we listen. I can't wait for the next one!

Love Pepper & Jace!

I cannot say how much I LOVE the Pepper Jones series.

Once again Ali Dean has sucked me in from the very beginning.

Pepper has definitely mature a lot since the last book. She’s more cautious when it comes to Jace which is very understandable. Jace is living with the regret of how he treated Pepper after his mother left again. But it’s Jace, so he won’t give up Pepper that easily.

Once again, Pepper & Jaces relationship is put through the test with crazy people trying to separate them. Will they make it? Will they end up stronger because of it? I’m pretty sure you already know the answer to those questions!

Stacey Glemboski is freaking awesome when it comes to narrating. I love how she can change her voice for the different characters and its realistic.
