Undeclared (Woodlands #1)For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.
Unspoken (Woodlands #2)Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.
I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?
He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.
Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.
I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.
She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.

4 stars out of 5----------
Undeclared is an adorable story about a former Marine and the girl he writes to the whole time he's deployed. These two are strangers when Grace sends her first letter as an English project. But it becomes more than homework. They fall in love over four years high school and deployment. But that's all ruined when Noah pushes her away when he gets out. He's a mess and doesn't want to put that on her.
Grace is trying to overcome her feelings for Noah. She's kind of depressed in the beginning. (Is it possible to be 'kind of' depressed or is it a matter of depressed or not?) She misses having that connection. But when she finally meets him, she pushes him away not wanting to fall for him again.
Noah was a mess when he got out. He couldn't put that on the girl he loved, so he vowed to get better before going to meet her. Noah is so sweet and determined!! I was definitely swooning over him.
Undeclared is probably the sweetest love story you'll ever find. I fell in love with the characters and setting and can't wait to read more about those Woodlands boys.
