Unwritten is the debut novel from M.C. Decker, and I really enjoyed this story. I thought that it was well written and interesting, and I didn't want to put this one down at all. I will warn you though that this is not a standalone novel as I had thought and is actually the first in a series. Yes that means it ends with a huge cliffhanger that I was completely unprepared for and it just about killed me. It looks as though the next book in the series Unscripted will be out sometime in 2015. Despite the ending that I wasn't ready for, I thought that M.C. Decker did a great job on her debut novel and I am looking forward to reading more from her.
Brooke Anderson had a great life, and was on track to making all of her dreams come true. Then she literally ran into Rich Davis, and everything changed for her. Despite their initial and less than great meeting, Rich and Brooke got to know one another and continued to get closer. Despite their feelings for one another, things between them always stayed just friends due to one reason or another. Now several years later, they haven't spoken once until Brooke shows up to a job interview at The Washington Post where she has always dreamed of working. The feelings and attraction between them resurface and both are wanting to have each other in a way they never have before. While Rich will stop at nothing to finally make Brooke his, Brooke is apprehensive about starting anything due to the fact that she will now be working for him. But can she really deny everything that is between them and what her heart wants regardless of what her head tells her?
I liked both Rich and Brooke a lot. I thought that they both made some really dumb mistakes, but I also saw their reasons for them. Rich comes off as an arrogant jerk at first, and I really was worried that I was going to hate him. But he won me over just as he won Brooke over, and I really began to like him. He was really smart and dedicated and I loved his confidence. He expected greatness out of others, but he was also living up to that himself. Brooke was smart as well, and I really loved that they could connect through their love of writing and editing. These two connected on every single level, and I like that Brooke could hold her own with Rich. She was a strong and independent woman, and I really thought that she was a great heroine. I felt so badly at times for Brooke and Rich both. They had some issues with timing and outside influences, and it really seemed as though their stars would never align. But I knew these two were perfect for one another and needed to end up together, so I just had to have faith that they would find their way to each other at the end of their solo journeys.
Overall, I really did enjoy this story and I loved pretty much everything about it. Besides the cliffhanger ending though, there were a few small things that kept this book from being a five star read for me. I felt like at times both Rich and Brooke acted childishly, especially Brooke. Her actions felt like those of a teenager rather than an adult, and I wanted to tell her to get a grip and act her age. Luckily this wasn't the majority of the story or anything, and it was only occasionally. I also felt as though Rich would do things at times that completely contradicted what he would say to Brooke. While he was telling her he would wait for her and that their story wasn't over, he would date others and lose touch with her. He also seemed to not really try to convince her of what could be between them, and at times it felt like he gave up on her and them far too easily. Of course he would eventually try to make things right and move forward, but it was frustrating at times that he would seem almost uninterested in her. I think that M.C. Decker had a really solid debut in Unwritten though, and I will definitely be stalking online to see when the next book comes out. I think if you know there is more coming and aren't expecting an HEA at the end of this book that it would completely change how you feel at the end of this story. I was disappointed with where it ended because I loved these characters at that point and really wanted to see them happy. The fact that it was such a huge cliffhanger left my emotions running wild and I honestly need to know what happens next. These two will be on my mind until I get the next installment in their story, and I just hope that I don't have to wait too long or I might go crazy. I would definitely recommend this story, and I think that M.C. Decker has a promising writing career ahead of her. I know I will be looking forward to seeing what she writes in the future.

This book is centered around two characters, Rich and Brooke. The two first meet in college when Brooke literally runs in to Rich on the way to class. Rich is a hot, cocky, jerk; Brooke is the sweet girl committed to her high school sweetheart. The two become friends and begin to develop feelings for each other. However, they don't act on them since Brooke has a boyfriend. When her boyfriend breaks up with her, Rich already has a girlfriend. The timing for these two just never seemed right and they go their separate ways.
They meet again years later when Brooke applies for the newspaper that Rich is an editor for. Not only that, but he is to be her new boss. The feelings and the chemistry follow them to the now. The now is where the story just didn't quite deliver for me.
There was too much pushing away from Brooke. I didn't get it. I mean I kind of did. She didn't want to start a new job seeming like she has the bosses favor because she is sleeping with him. I get that. But, she kept saying things to push Rich away and would not even give him a chance. Honestly I thought she was a bitch. I just couldn't understand why Rich would still want her. This made it hard for me to connect with the story.
The dialogue between Rich and Brooke was sometimes stuffy and felt forced. Even when they finally tried to be together, some of it just felt unnatural and was often corny.
I really enjoyed the first half of the book, when the two are in college. I connected with them then, but lost that connection when they are grown. I just found it hard to sympathize with Brooke's feelings when she acted the way she did. I didn't feel like she deserved the guy, but was glad that got together for Rich's sake.
Unwritten was on its way to being a 4 heart read for me but well you know what happened. However, Brooke's behavior is ones of my book post peeves. I WOULD recommend this book to those who are looking for a quick light read. But beware: This book ends in a cliffy.
The Author of this book asked me if I would be interested in reading her book for an honest review and I must say I am so glad she did. I have been in a little bit of a book slump lately and was hesitant but this book really helped bring me out of the slump.
I started reading this book late one evening on a work night and boy was that the wrong thing to do! I couldn’t put it down. It grabbed my attention right away and hooked me. I kept saying just one more chapter, then on the next chapter I would say alright one more chapter and before I knew it I was almost at 30%.
This story is about Brooke who is in college and seems to have the perfect life with the perfect best friend and the perfect boyfriend. Her main goal in life is to graduate from college and be a reported for the Washington Post. One day she runs into a fellow student, I mean like literally runs into him, his name is Rich and he is the cockiest most egotistical man she has even met. She dislikes him immediately. However when they are paired together to complete a project at school she finds out that maybe he isn’t so bad and they end up becoming friends. This begins a heartbreaking, whirlwind love & friendship chasing story that will span years.
The characters in this story were so awesome I loved all of them. I loved the friendship between Brooke and her best Cassidy (it reminded me a lot of my best friend). I loved some of the words that the Author used as well they had me cracking me up at times. The writing was easy to follow, flowed easily and the story was just all around really good. Now you might be thinking this is a love triangle and in some ways I guess it could be but it’s not the kind that you think it is and I really wouldn’t classify it as a love triangle. It is a sweet love story that will give you butterflies but it will also tug at your heart.
All and all I really enjoyed Unwritten and I can’t wait to read the next one to find out what will happen next for these characters. I am told the next one will be out in Spring of this year. Thank you again to Author M.C. Decker for asking me to review it, I am so happy that I did! This was a great book at getting a second chance at love!
Brooke Anderson meets Rich Davis on her way to journalism class at Western Michigan University and he makes an everlasting impression when they meet. These two butt heads like nobody's business and it takes them awhile to warm up to one another, both being stubborn as mules. Well, several missed opportunities, stubbornness and graduation leads up to a reunion that Brooke never expected. Interviewing with the Washington Post, she once again comes fact to face with the Rich as her potential boss and doesn't know what to do!
Here she has the ultimate opportunity to get the two things that she's wanted most in all the world. A position with a top newspaper, her dream job, or to finally be with Rich. Dilemma dilemma. Oh my goodness these two had me totally going nuts the entire book. Will they get together? Is it meant to be? Should they try again? And those love scenes!! Hello Smokin hot Kindle!
"Whoever said the G-spot doesn't exist has never done that before."
I'm completely gushing right now because I loved the book. Normally this type or "are we, are we not" books completely infuriate me but MC Decker made it work and so very well. So many laugh out loud moments too. I loved Brooke's best friend Cassidy and really want her to have her own book. She's too funny not to have her own Happily Ever After.
"I thought I was going to have to fight a bear for you. I'd fight a bear for you, you know? Not a grizzly, or brown bear...or a koala...But like a Care Bear? I'd fight one of those sonsabitches for you."
Little Kaitlyn is adorable and Rich had me swooning when they interacted. Even Brooke was getting swoony.
"I swear in that moment I felt my ovaries flop inside my belly."
And that ending *gasp*. So many "holy crap, holy crap, you did not just do this to me right now. Oh my God!!" Spewing out of me at the same time. I need the next book. Right now!!! Prepare for a book hangover of epic proportions!!
