This book is not a dreamy romance or a girl meets the man of her
This book is not a dreamy romance or a girl meets the man of her dreams and they fall madly in love and live happily ever after sort of book. This is a very realistic story of how relationships sometimes really are when you have two commitment phobic people. The back and forth affair, the teasing, the leading on, the one-sided attraction. Love doesn't always hit each person at the same time; if it did, then life would be perfect, wouldn't it? But life isn't perfect and neither is love. Uninvolved gave me a similar feeling as when I read Avoiding Commitment but without the degree of angst.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Carey Heywood has captured the truth in the workings of love and relationships in real life with Uninvolved. Becka's immaturity was evidenced by the childish game of spin-the-bottle and stowing of an empty beer bottle that belonged to Nate. At first I thought this made Becka seem pathetic, but then I realized that it was just her maturity level, and only validated why Nate referred to Becka as "Kid." My anger toward Becka's desperation for Nate was off the charts, but then I realized that this is exactly how it is in real life sometimes. In the end, I grew to like Becka again, and after getting Nate's full story, I grew to like him, too. Do we get a happily ever after for these two commitment phobics or for Becka and Kyle? Well, there is a happily ever after, but you will have to read the book to discover just who is happy and who is not. *wink*
