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…

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Normally, I wouldn’t look twice a book with this cover and title. It seems as if it were a love triangle, right? Well, I’m here to tell you it isn’t! I dived into the story and read it in 13 hours!! It would have been less but I had to do human things like eat and chores and whatnot. Every free time I had, I would spend it reading Undecided.

I was not expecting this story to be funny at all but once I started reading, I was already smiling and I was at only 1%! That’s how good the start of the book was. It started so promising that I was enamored! 

Nora wants to stop her partying ways and focus on school so she doesn’t lose her scholarship. She ends up being roommates and friends with Kellan, who is amazing! Kellan turns out to be Crosbie’s best friend and this guy right here has a reputation.

Nora and Crosbie’s relationship was so much fun to read! Crosbie is actually a very nice guy! He always treated Nora with respect and everyone around him. The witty-banter filled with sarcasm had me laughing so hard. I would definitely re-read this book just for this because it was fun!

There was barely any drama, the characters were real and funny, the story was on point! Plus, I was able to relate to Nora, seeing as she’s “undecided” on what to study in college. Nora was so real, flawed, and easy to relate to in many ways. Oh and Nora is a fan of Arrested Development, which I’m starting to watch so I was so glad when this show was mentioned in the book a couple of times.

Overall, an amazing, hilarious and real New Adult story that deserves all the attention!
