Review: Unwritten by M.C. Decker

I thought it was too late. I thought our story had already been written.

College sophomore Brooke Anderson thought she had it all − a loving family, her sexy high school sweetheart, a supportive, quick-witted best friend and dreams of being the next hotshot reporter for the Washington Post.

Fate had something else in mind when Brooke collided with the devastatingly handsome upperclassman, Rich Davis. Rich was cocky, conceited and arrogant. He was everything that Brooke didn’t want, but Rich never gave her the option. He had already made the choice to be, at the very least, her friend. Would Brooke accept this egotistical man’s friendship? Would she choose to want more? Would it be too late if she did?

Fast forward nearly ten years. Brooke’s life hadn’t played out quite as she had envisioned it. She was suffering from the heartbreaking loss of her mother, her high school sweetheart was long gone, and her dreams of the Washington Post had turned into a career at a small town paper. Brooke decided it was time to follow her dreams. If she couldn’t be happy in love, at least she could be happy in life.

Brooke’s dreams brought her to the lobby of the Washington Post where fate intervened once again as she collided with none other than the devastatingly handsome Rich Davis. As her potential employer, Rich now seemed off-limits. Brooke wanted her successful career more than a chance at love. But, was it really her choice to make, or was it beyond her control?

Maybe our story is, in fact, Unwritten …

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!
