Review: Undeclared

Undeclared Undeclared by Julianna Keyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kellan McVey is Burnham College’s most prolific athlete, partier, and ladies’ man—and that’s just how he likes it. Returning to reign for his third year, he wants nothing to change. Then Andrea Walsh shows up.

It wasn’t too long ago that Andi and Kellan were lifelong friends, mortal enemies, and, for one hot summer, more. Then Kellan left and Andi stayed behind.

Kellan thought he’d moved past that last summer’s heartbreak, but with Andi sitting next to him in class, befriending his friends, and battling for the same once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity, he’s starting to remember why he hated her…and why he loved her.

Kellan has a long list of reasons that falling for Andi again is a terrible idea, though every new moment together challenges that theory. But Andi’s all too familiar with Kellan’s love ’em and leave ’em approach—and she’s found someone else to get serious about.

Burnham’s campus king has never had to fight for a girl, but if he wants Andi to give him another chance, he’ll have to do the one thing he’s never had the nerve to do: admit it.

I love Kellan!! I felt so sorry for him and I might be the only one who does but part of me just wanted to hug him!! This is a book that I had a bunch of mixed feelings about. The sex in this was OTT but in this case I thought it lent to the storyline. Some authors throw sex in just to throw it in with no purpose whatsoever but in this book, I felt that it worked to help with the story. She did something that made me read it and not put down, which I would have in anything else.

Andi is a complicated person. She grew up next door to Kellan and the summer before he left for college they had a sex-filled summer. He didn't want to go away to college a virgin and they decided to see each other that summer and Kellan fell for Andi. It takes Andi a couple of years to get a scholarship to college and when she gets one, it's to the college that Kellan's attending. Wonder of wonders, she acts like she doesn't know him and that ticks him off. Which in turn, also makes him go after her even harder.

This was an awesome, quick read and I will read the next book when it comes out. I have a new author that I've added to my list of TBR list. The only caution was that the language and sexual content was excessive at times and that may have taken away from the storyline sometimes.

I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on Netgalley for a honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's.
