Ualifying for Nationals It’s all I can think about and I’m willing to do anything it takes to make it happen I can handle long miles and hill sprints in cross country but guys That’s an ntirely different challengeI’ve kept my feelings hidden from the boy next door all this time My longtime friend Jace Wil. Should be perfectly clear between these two boys forget her unreuited on Jace and accept a relationship with a high class guy and she does try her best to carry out decision But unfortunately as soon as Pepper begins dating Ryan Jace suddenly starts acting like he s anything but Pepper s pseudo brother and like he s could it be jealousWhat I likedThis author is clearly a very talented writer Her writing is smooth and her characterizations are vivid and three dimensional Pepper is a dynamic xtremely sympathetic heroine I Against All Odds enjoyed the use of first person point of view and I found the window into Pepper s running world fascinating It is obvious the author knows that world very well but than that she conveys it in such a way thatven if the reader knows nothing about running and could care less about it Pepper s Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism experience of it isxciting Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils enough to inspire readers young and old to jump into a pair of running shoes and take off The setting in Colorado also comes alive on the page and makes the reader long to visit that amazing mountain filled stateWhat isn t suited to my own individual tasteFirst while listing what I didn tnjoy I want to make clear that I am not grading this book down for not being Payment Due entirely to my own personal taste as you can see by the 5 star rating because I don t consider that a literary crime Many other readers may find the aspects of this book that did not suit me to be a perfect match for their reading interestsFirst I m not myself a fan of YA romantic triangles because as is the case in this book sometimes the guy whonds up with the heroine is not who I had hoped she would choose It is a testament to how great the rest of the book is and what a wonderful heroine Pepper is though that I found it impossible to put the book down in spite of its romantic triangle Just in case I didn t make it absolutely clear from what I said already Pepper is one of the most terrific heroines in YANA I ve Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, encountered whether in indie or mainstream YANA novelsSecond I m not a fan of R rated YANA novels which is what I consider this book to be and I had many sueamish moments at the various bacchanalian activities portrayed onstage or mentioned as occurring offstage in this book Pepper herself though truly respects her own body as her vehicle for the passion of her life her running and as the book is in first person point of view the reader is notncouraged to see Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, either

starsOverall 5 stars This book was received via Netgalley in The Rich and the Profane (Lovejoy, exchange for an honest reviewI was interested in this book and was hoping for a light and cute romance but it was not to be The first half of the book was okay but by thend I was so disappointed in not only Jace but also Pepper Jace acts like a jerk throughout the book being domineering and controlling of Pepper and treating her like shit constantly being hot and cold towards her yet she still Turbulence ends up with him by thend of the book Not only does he ignore her most of the time they are at school he keeps tabs on her warns boys away from her deals drugs and parties hard having casual hookups and orgies with any breathing female all while he knows how he feels about Pepper knowing she likes him and knowing it will hurt her I tried to put myself in Pepper s shoes Jace is her childhood best friend she s had a crush on him for years and he s hot but still I came up short If I was Pepper I would have dumped his ass I felt like Jace s behaviour was an insult to women verywhere and uite frankly was so disgusting and disrespectful This really ruined the book for me Not only that but Pepper starts a relationship with Ryan although she knows she s really only biding her time until Jace wants to date her For me this is just xtremely messed up and the whole drama would have been sorted out if Pepper just removed herself from Jace s life and started dating someone Elizabeth Ann Seton else once she was sure she had gotten over Jace Hence this was a disappointing read due to the characters and the plot that I found to be uite offensive to womenverywhere While I am aware that the females were consensual the fact Der doesn’t see me that way He has the personal magnetism and good looks to hook just about any girl in town and he has Our friendship stands apart from high school social circles and I’m fine with that or so I keep telling myselfThat is until running star Ryan Harding moves to town and bridges the gap Apparen.
