**I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way can affect my opinion on the book and its content.
Nora Kincaid has one goal for her second year of college: be invisible. Last year’s all-party-no-study strategy resulted in three failed classes and two criminal charges, and if she messes up again she’ll lose her scholarship. But there’s one problem with her plan for invisibility, and his name is Crosbie Lucas: infamous party king, general hellraiser…and her new roommate’s best friend.
Crosbie’s reckless reputation and well-known sexcapades aren’t part of Nora’s studious new strategy, but as she’s quickly learning, her new plan is also really boring. When Crosbie’s unexpected gestures of friendship pull her head out of her books long enough to see past his cocky veneer, she’s surprised to find a flawed and funny guy beneath it all. The muscles don’t hurt, either.
But as Nora starts to fall for Crosbie, the weight of one of last year’s bad decisions grows even heavier. Because three failing grades and two misdemeanors are nothing compared to the one big secret she’s hiding…
Great news! THIS IS NOT A LOVE TRIANGLE, PEOPLE!!
Yes peeps, your ears have not deceived you this time. This is totally not a love triangle. It was all about a love story between a girl and her roommate’s BFF. In fact, the title was our protagonist, Nora’s, answer to every question regarding what to major in. And the cover? Definitely quite suggestive, and you bet it is hinting something, but I can guarantee it’s far from being a trio love story.
So, it’s not a triangle love, but Undecided is not just awesome from that. Because holy molly, Julianna Keyes can write hilarious AND heart-throbbing story like nobody business. The book was super sweet and adorable, but at the same time, it can give your heart a small kick by how meaningful the story was. I fell hard for Undecided.
The characters are downright amazing. The relationships they have with one another are absolutely admirable, especially Nora and Crosbie’s love. They are super sweet and toe-curling cute, and definitely deserve to be a goal couple for anyone. And of course, you just can’t exclude the wonderful friendship between Crosbie and Kellan (warning: high level of bromance), and the hilarious interaction between Nora and Kellan.
“And while I hope you and I will stay friends, I have to do whatever it takes to fix things with Crosbie. Bros before ho—roommates. Ahem. Roommates.”
The best thing about Undecided is how realistic it is. There are dramas, alright, but it was well—or I have to say—amazingly done, and all were resolved in reasonable and satisfying ways that I absolutely adore. Not only that, the book points out many important things about being what you feel comfortable the most, and I truly appreciate it. The story is absolutely beautiful and well-planned.
“I’m not the person who moved into that apartment in September, and Crosbie’s not the person I thought I met then, either. But Kellan is exactly who he appeared to be—no pretenses, no illusions. Maybe he’ll change, and maybe not. Whatever he’s doing seems to be working for him, and that’s what matters.”
If I must describe Undecided in one word, it would be “splendid”. The story was extremely well-executed, and the characters are hilarious and very realistic, which is absolutely wonderful! Now, GIF me some Kellan’s books…
