Ali Dean

Goodreads Author

in Burlington, Vermont, The United States



Member Since
May 2012


Ali is a USA Today Bestselling author of sports romance. She has always loved to read, especially when there's a happily ever after, but found that there weren't enough books out there featuring girl athletes. So, she decided to work on that. Like the heroines in her books, Ali is an athlete, with running and skiing her favorite sports these days. Ali hails from Vermont and now lives in her own happily-ever-after in Colorado with her husband, two sets of twins, and golden retriever Pancake. When she's not pursuing an outdoor adventure, Ali's less healthy passions include ice cream, coffee, and beer.

Brazen Rush by Ali Dean
"Oh my gosh, Ali! Your books keep getting better and better! I love Jordan so much. She’s so put together and mature but so almost naive at the same time. And Beck. Swoon. I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to give spoilers. Wow. I devoured" Read more of this review »

" Yes, same characters and universe throughout. "

“She sees me approaching and ushers me over, apparently with the belief I can help her cause. “What’s going on, Gran?” I ask. “These young men here seem to think I’m not cut out for a keg stand,” she huffs indignantly. “Wally, what do you think? Do you think it’s my age?”
Ali Dean, Pepped Up Forever

“You never say what I expect you to say, Roxanne. You never do what I expect, either. Each time I ask you to hang out, I wonder if you'll go off on me, or ignore me."
"Ask me? You never ask, Ryker, you just take."
He smirks, still staring at the fire. "That's only because I'm afraid you'll say no.”
Ali Dean, Black Diamond

“some of us were meant to be alone, and it’s hard to remember that when you’re with me.”
Ali Dean, Get Lucky: A YA Anthology

“I’m at the tipping point of a transformation that began months ago, an intentional decision put in motion. And it feels so fucking good. I’ve come to the full realization that my happiness, my life, falls squarely on my shoulders. No one’s gonna do it for it me. I’m the one who makes it or breaks it.  It’s a choice.  A choice that demands action in exchange for reward. Idleness and complacency lead to mediocrity. Sometimes action is really fucking hard fought, but that’s when the payoff’s the highest.  That’s when great things happen.  Not good things … but epic things. And I’ve fallen in love with epic.  It’s the only way to live.”
Kim Holden, Gus
