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 hands

I was lucky enough to receive an early copy of this book through a blog. I feel like I should send them money for it, it was that good! The feels are all there and all of the throwback pop culture was so much fun to relive! I laughed, I cried, I swooned, I got angry. It had all of the makings of a fabulous book! I cannot wait to see what comes next from this author! No, REALLY, I CANNOT WAIT! Fabulous debut!

What an amazing book this is!!

Unwritten is just that..Amazing..

I loved the beginning with its time twists and flashbacks!! It was a bit of a risky move to start the book this way, but boy wasn’t it successful and one of a kind?!! It is intriguing and very attractive!

I also loved the fact that we saw how they met and how their feelings evolved. I always love when I see their beginning and MC Decker gave that to us. We didn’t linger too much, but at the same time we saw everything we needed to see

3.5 for this debut novel!!

Unwritten is the debut novel by author M.C. Decker and is the first in her Unspoken series. I can’t wait to introduce you to Brooke and Rich!

Brooke is an only child, as is her best friend Cassidy. These two are like peas in a pod and they just make me laugh and reminisce about my childhood friendships.

“She was my breath of fresh air and I was her stable rock.”

Getting to see the two of them in college brought back so many memories for me…anyone in their early to mid thir

Aside from my obvious complaint that this formula has been done to death, the author's writing style was hard for me to stomach. She would have the characters say an entire paragraph without taking a breath, where normally writers break it up by describing an action. Also, there were many contradictions in her descriptors (i.e., 'gently plunged'. Which is it? Was it gentle or did he plunge?). The inner dialogue being in italics also bothered me. She was telling the story in first person, there w ...more

Such a great story of fate, destiny, soul-mates...however you want to believe we meet those we are meant to meet.

College is where this begins with Rich and Brooke. The "hottie McA**hole" and the girl with the long distance boyfriend. Rich is goal driven and determined to succeed. Brooke is the girl who knows what she wants from her life.

We travel with Brooke and Rich through college with Brooke as the narrator. Then we follow along until later in life when Brooke

Unwritten follows the story of journalists Brooke Anderson and Rich Davis, their journey beginning in college where they build a close friendship. They both feel something more, but they lose touch after Rich’s graduation and are reunited 10 years later when Brooke interviews for her dream job at the Washington Post. The years apart have not cooled the heat that courses between them. Brooke is faced with choosing her career or a future with Rich. Is it possible for her to have both?

I was so luck

Wow, Unwritten is a great story. Unwritten is a wonderful written story that takes us through the journey of Brooke and Rich. We get the story of how they meet and how they reconnect. I loved Brooke and her best friend Cassidy. Their relationship is the prefect best friend relationship. Together they call Rich Mr. Gorgeous A-hole, Hottie Mc A-hole, and I'm pretty sure I forget one of their nicknames for him. Rich calls Brooke Babbling Brooke. The nickname and funny banter between the character m ...more

To have been a part of this journey has been amazing! This book is like nothing I have ever read which makes it fabulous from the start. M.C. really taps into your inner emotions, takes you back in some years, pulls you forward to the present and taking a ride with Brooke and Rich.
So proud of this book and can't wait for the next installment. Your heart will not be the same when you are finished and that is a good thing. Left open and emotional, perfection in an amazing story!

Incredibly written story of true love that can take a long time, to come to be. Watching Rich and Brooke finally come together had it all, heartache, a little humor. Be prepared for quite a cliffhanger as well!

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

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

When I was asked to read Unwritten for an honest review I was like sure… I love college romance stories and the whole coming of age thing so why not! MC Decker totally blew away my expectations and I found myself falling in love with Brook and Rich’s story. I was rooting for them to find their way and make things work. The road for love is not always an easy one and the road to self-discovery will have high and lows and everywhere in-between! So many times I found myself banging my head against ...more

This book......I don't even know where to start. I am so kicking myself right now for waiting as long as I did to read this book. This one of those books, that just leaves me without words...

Unwritten is a beautifully written story about second chances and missed opportunities. It follows the main characters Brooke and Rich when they first meet in college. It was not really love at first sight for Brooke, but as she got to know Rich, she found that Rich wasn't so bad. How

Unwritten is an "up all night, must finish right now, sleep not needed" kind of book. It spans about twelve years and is the story of taking a chance on love the second time around.

Brooke Anderson meets Rich Davis aka Mr. Gorgeous Asshole aka Hotty McAsshole aka Douche Monkey Davis on her way to journalism class at Western Michigan University and he makes an everlasting impression (as if you couldn't tell from the nicknames). These two butt heads like nobody's business and it takes them awhile
ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

I found this to be enjoyable, and there is definitely some angst throughout the book, but there were a few times where I found myself rolling my eyes, and all of the eye-rolling was because of Brooke. There's definitely chemistry between Brooke and Rich, but timing seemed to be a factor with them. I was also impressed when Rich told Brooke that he didn't want to be her rebound guy, big points for him not taking advantage of the situation and just using

Unwritten is a good debut novel by M.C. Decker. This author had a lot of potential.

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, Ri

I think this is an amazing story of two people who truly are in love. At first the book started out slow I didn't get into it until chapter 6. Then the story started pulling me in I had to know what would happen. This girl gives new meaning to walls I mean I wanted to slap her a few times. But I understood why she was so stubborn and infuriating me. Brooke was a head strong young lady that was at college she had a perfect boyfriend. She had life planned out accordingly exactly how she wanted it ...more

Ever meet someone that you should have said yes to, but held off because the timing just wasn't right? That's what happened to Brooke, and his name was Rich Davis. He was the guy she loved to hate, the one that crawled under her skin and made it nearly impossible for her to forget. What should have been so easy to say yes to, ended up being an amazing friendship with the promise of more, if only Brooke would give in and admit it.
Ten years later, Brooke is still in Michigan. Working a dead end j

Given To Me For An Honest Review

Unwritten (The Unspoken Series Book 1) by M.C. Decker is a great must read especially for a debut novel. The main characters in the book are Brooke and Rich. Brooke and Rich met in college and became close friends. After graduation they went their separate ways. Ten years later they meet again. Once you begin to read this book you will not be able to put it down. Talk about a page turner. Those pages will seem like they just turn themselves as you read. The full s

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review, it in no way guarantees that it will be positive.

Brook and Rich meet on the way to the same class. They both get a false first impression but soon they find that they work well together. Life does not work out for them right then, but life isn’t done with them yet.
This story is full of hits and misses between Brooke and Rich and the story is full of drama and intrigue. The cliffhanger at the end will leave you excited for the next

I loved this book! I don't even know what else to say. I just finished reading it, so everything else that comes to mind has "spoiler alert" written all over it!

Brooke is a strong, driven, and smart woman. She and her bestie, Cassidy, have the greatest dynamic in this book. They made me laugh with their nicknames and conversations. They have a true life relationship. I love that Brooke stayed strong even though she was hur

I truly enjoyed this book!!! I loved the flashback that the book begins with and the backstory that it offers the reader for future reference. Rich is one helluva man! Where was he when I was in college? He is BBF material FOR SURE! While I liked Brooke, there were times that I wanted to smack her. I had a hard time with the back & forth behavior & her jealously all because she couldn't make a decision.

A perfectly paced plotline, a heart-warming romance‚ realistically sculpted characters …

Unwritten is really the whole package. Humor‚ romance‚ drama‚ steamy sex scenes… so many emotions were packed perfectly together and made this novel a fabulous read.

Fantastic debut from M.C.! I stumbled upon this book from a recommendation from a friend and she hit the nail on the head. I couldn’t put it down. It was a very easy read that pulled on my emotions, especially as the story went on. I found myself frustrated with Brooke at times, but that is what makes this story so engaging. And then there’s Rich…sigh!

I enjoyed getting to know them in the past and seeing how they have grown and changed with what life has dealt them as we work our way to the pre
