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 my story is, in fact, Unwritten …
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 thirties will be able to relate to all the pop culture references. I may or may not have been listening to some throw back music after I finished the book LOL
During college Brooke goes through heartbreak, lust, and heartbreak again. Her relationship with her friend Rich was fun and flirty,. He was a sweet guy and they appeared to be good for one another…until he graduated and dropped from her existence.
We fast forward 10+ years when Brooke and Rich meet again. Brooke still seems to be the same girl from college, just more mature. Rich on the other hand….well let’s see his alpha/slightly arrogant ass side shall we…
“Don’t tease me, sweetheart. it’s taking all my willpower not to rip that skirt off you and bend you over my desk right now.”
Brooke and Rich kind of pick up where they left off, their easy conversations, teasing, and flirting come so natural. Brooke is really at ease with him, outside of the office at least….
“I was young and carefree in Rich’s strong embrace, as though the last ten years of my life hadn’t happened.”
Brooke does not want to jeopardize her career with an interoffice relationship with the boss. She asks for space, this is her dream job and she doesn’t want to lose it, but is it worth losing Rich??
“Rich was giving me exactly what I wanted, but it still hurt.”
The story follows Rich and Brooke as they try to find their place with one another and be where they truly belong. Can they make this work? Read and find out if their future is still, Unwritten :)
