I mean, Murph’s special. He’s funny and flamboyant and full of life.
While I’m straight, even I can tell these guys aren’t good enough for him.
I had to yell at one date, toss another one out the door, and throw a beer in another’s face.
Kind of embarrassing, really. I don’t know what’s gotten into me.
I ask my sister what’s wrong wi ...more
Murph, with his vibrance and energy just shines. He is colorful, bright and in his own words "extraordinary ".
Or Jason, who is the sweetest, dorkiest, most adorable insurance agent I've ever heard of. His need to nurture and take care of Murph comes from such a selfless place. The way he helped him move, feeding him and protecting him put hearts in my eyes.
Or it might have just been the author who charmed me with her w ...more
Murph is out and proud when he moved into a new flat with a new flatmate Jason. Jason leads a mediocre life until Murph comes into it and then he's going to fayres and cooking with his flatmate. Jason always assumed he was straight until he realises he's got feelings for Murph. This is when he learns he's actually bisexual. This story was absolutely perfect and wanted to hug both of them and be their friend. I can't recommend this book highly enough. To me it's perfect. ...more
what in the biphobia...
was loving this until the whole “you can’t possibly be satisfied being with a man when you’re bisexual bcos you’ll obviously be tempted by other women and want to return to women”— like Jason can’t make up his own mind (and whatever “return to women” means, i don’t know either :///)
invalidating bisexual and pansexual people ain’t it lol. it literally soured my mood so bad😭 i was intending to ...more
Murph is the absolute sweetest cinnamon roll MC ever!!! I was first introduced to him in Marley Valentine's V&V entry Unforgettable and I was instantly smitten with his character and desperately wanted his story. I was excitedly anticipating his romance and Undone did not disappoint.
Undone consists of a roommates to lovers trope with bisexual awakening elements story that is full of sweet moments between Murph and ...more
The basic premise is that one poster was worried they were homophobic because they hated everyone their flatmate dated. Turns out, they were in love with the flatmate - all ended happily at time of printing :D

Undone was a book that had me smiling like a loon almost the entire time I was reading. Murph and Jason had the cutest friendship and it was amazing to see how it progressed to more. Especially with the added angst from Jason being unsure of his feelings for Murph. These are two characters that could intrigue you all by themselves, but together they bring a sweetness to the story that makes you feel like you've truly immersed yourself into the world with them. And i ...more
Murph + Jason
We already met Murph as Reeve's BFF and roommate two books ago and since Reeve fell in love, Murph needs a new place to live.
Enter Jason. He's a life insurance salesman who rents out a room in his house.
Jason doesn't love his job, but he's good at it and it's family tradition.
Jason is also not gay.
But he's so very intrigued by his happy and glittering new roommate.
LET THE FUN TIMES BEGIN! ☺
I was so looking forward to Murph's story! He's so funny and color ...more
I wanted to write a bisexual awakening book that had no miscommunication between the leads, although Jason miscommunicates with himself about his sexuality. It meant a lot to me to have a book where the characters talked out everything … but they still had conflicts to deal with.
Truth? I have a crush on Murph. I think I have a thing for funny, vivacious twinks. And Jason is just so, so yummy. I can see why Murph has a crush on him.
I also tried to includ ...more
Opposites attract in Vermont. This is a special self discovery tale.
New roomies, Jason and Murph, where Jason owns the Victorian home, and he rents rooms, and Murph was found for him by his sister. The two get along right away.
Clueless Jason, 27, is an insurance man in his
Dad's business, plus he's handsome, tall and muscled, green-eyed, with blonde/brown/red hair, and has a FWB, friend with benefits, Marnie, and a glassworks hobb ...more
based on the above Reddit story that's actually super adorable but also had my expectations sky high to the detriment of my enjoyment. the general premise instantly captured my attention, though the execution left me wanting angles that we didn't get. (on a side note, this also felt vaguely similar to Unforgettable which i'd just finished with the bit about parental expectations and feeling unworthy of love due to trauma from an ex.)
Jason is the supposed "straight guy" who finds himself inadvert ...more
With his sweet, low angst book the Vino & Veritas series comes to an end. Though I still have a couple of them on my TBR, so technically I'm not there yet, but this book is indeed the last one in a series I really enjoyed. I'm going to miss all these familiar faces and the vibe of Vermont!
This book gives us Murph and Jason, and since Murph is in need of a new place to stay and Jason has a room for rent, they end up together in the same house. Murph immediately falls for Jason, who's not ...more
Murph and Jason are a lot of fun, and Murph needs to come be my friend - stat. True to the world they're in, Jason's realization that Murph is more than a friend, and his standing up to...well, read it and find out. I'd like to see more of these two!! ...more
Undone was a good read.
Jason has a new flatmate, Murph, he finds him cute and they have a lot of interests in common. Day after day Jason grows fonder of his new friend and he begins to see Murph differently, but he is straight, right? Murph is instantly attracted to his new landlord but he knows that is dangerous to fall in love with a straight man but that doesn’t forbid him being a flirt. Will there be heartbreak in their future or an happy ending? Find it out reading this story.
I liked Mur
ARC kindly received for an honest review.
I absolutely adored this book and I devoured it. Murph was an interesting character in Unforgettable (by Marley Valentine, a previous book in this series), and I was keen to get to know him in this book, his own story.
I was not let down. He was such an adorable and loveable character, and I also really liked Jason. I love roommates and friends to lovers books, and this was kind of a mix of both, although mostly on the roommates side. I really ...more
I need more stars to give, because 5 aren't enough.
Since I started this book, I just couldn't put it down. The characters were so complex, full of personality and completely enticing.
Along the whole book, I felt embraced in a warm cocoon, my heart was warm and cozy and all I could do was smile.
It was like this book was hugging me and making me feel loved.
Jason and Murph captivated me entirely.
Murph was colorful and so full of life. Whenever he was around, there was this lig ...more
Jason and Davey “Murph” Murphy meet while Murph is moving into Jason’s apartment. Jason immediately sees that Murph is very comfortable in his own skin and loves being himself. Jason is a bit of a protector. He loves making dinner for him and Murphy and even packs leftovers for Murph to take to work.
Jason works for hi ...more
I am so super stoked with the choices Leslie made with this story especially developing Murph and Jason as friends before more. It added a layer of swoon and #feels for me that just made my heart want to burst! Their friendship was amazing and made for some truly funny scenes between them. The progression of the journey was mature, and I co ...more
I wanted to like this book because MURPH! But sadly it was way too long, way too boring and had so much soft bigotry in it I was mostly annoyed as I read it.
I’m almost done and I remember why I never read MF anymore. The woman villain. Ugh,seriously Marnie. AND using the trope that he was tricked into being with men. Can you throw anymore bisexual stereotypes into one book. TERRIBLE.
ALSO..The fact that Jason needed to prove his gayness to Murph is also super cringy.
This book was not good. ...more
I love coming out, gay realisation story's and this is a wonderfully written book.
Jason's oh my goddess :) moment with his sister is perfect. ...more
This book had all the potential.
First-time gay, Gay-For-You, Bi/Gay awakening. Whatever you want to call it, it’s without a doubt, my favourite MM trope. No contest.
And the story being part of Sarina Bowen’s True North universe? I was prepared for epic-ness.
The story started out perfectly with the sparkly and unapologetically out Murph moving in with the buttoned-up, and very straight, Jason.
Only, the very first time Jason – who’s most definitely not gay – lays eyes on Murph, ...more
Murph is (sing it) fab-u-lous! He’s pink and sparkly and delicious. I love him and his effervescence. He is a happy soul. And I just love him from the top of his technicolour hair to the bottom of his glitter coated rainbow toenails. He is (sing it) spec-tac-ular.
Jason is a deep thinking, people pleaser. So bothered about other people and their feelings that he doesn’t give any time to his own.
What a match made in heaven. Oh my goddess, they really, really are. There m ...more
It was a solid 3.5 stars until the last 10% .. Well to be honest I removed 0.5 after that OTT drama at 80% ( Murph’s behavior mostly)
I almost dnfed at 92% .. the whole make up part threw me out of the story.
Full review to come. Now on to the bonus epilogue, although i kinda of lost interest in them but I like Jason so much to skip it 😁
Edit.. I changed my rating from 2.5 stars to 2. I just finished the bonus epilogue and what the fuck did I just read ??!! Why there’s a bonus epilogue already?
