Review: Undecided by Julianna Keyes

Rating: 5 Cups of Coffee
Goodreads Book Description:
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…


Natasha's Experience:
UNDECIDED was everything I needed in a New Adult read - I haven't read a story like this in a while; it was the perfect summer read for me. I figured I could just start a few pages and continue on with regular life but this book demanded my attention, and I was all too willing to get lost within its pages.


"The truth always finds a way out in the end."

Nora and Crosbie have made their way into my top favorite new adult couples of all time!! I can already see this book being something I'll reread at least once a year. 
Crosbie and Nora are both polar opposites and identical souls - they both have mistakes and regrets they'd like to ultimately never deal with again.


"It’s the things we do when we think nobody’s watching that reveal the most."


Nora has one goal for the year: become invisible. She's spent the greater part of last year desperately aching for a spotlight. When the attention she gets nearly ruins her college career, she decides it's time to become a wallflower. 


"Maybe the truth is a little more than we can handle right now."

Nora's an all-or-nothing kind of gal, and when she realizes she might want "all" with Crosbie, she finds herself utterly conflicted. How will she manage to turn her life around if the person she wants has the ability to potentially drag her back down? (not really, but it seems that way - what with his winning reputation and all) ((No judgment, Crosbie, I really do love you to pieces))


“There’s no timeline for finding your way... When you get there, you’ll know.”

If you've been looking for a New Adult read that is absolutely all-consuming, steamier than a sauna, and hilariously entertaining, don't hesitate -- grab UNDECIDED. Reading this book was decidedly the best reading choice I've made in a while.
