This book was a little different than her other books. I mean, it was still dark and twisted, but the POV was male so that was a first. I don't know that I felt a strong emotional connection to the characters in the story until I got to the end and really replayed what I just read. This book is a bit of a sleeper, but once it is all played out, you are just taken aback by what just happened. I feel like the book gets better the more you are able to grasp the cleverness, manipulativeness, and overall ingenious of some of the characters (I don't want to get specific but you will understand once you read it). Overall, I think this book is worth reading and then replaying the scenes once you are finished. If you do that, you will better understand the intelligence it took to create a story that changes your entire perspective once you complete it and doing so without plot holes.

This story puts you inside the head of Noah, which is an interesting place to be. It made me think a lot about how you can rationalize anything if you really want to, but deep down you know it's wrong & that will eat at you. Also, how one mistake or impulse decision leads to a spiral of bad choices. Both Noah and Addison change a lot throughout the book and it's interesting to follow how they become both better and worse in various ways. The ending wasn't a complete shock, but it wasn't exactly what I expected either. All in all, a good book that will take you to some dark places & really make you think.

Where do I even start? This is the third book I've read from this amazing author. Some books start out slow and you really have to work to get interested. This is not the case here. The book starts and finishes with excitement. I could hardly put it down I liked it so much. Nerdy Noah is so easy to love. He makes you want him to have a happy ending. He deserves it right? Addison is that girl we all want to be. Pretty, outgoing, and seems to have it all. You wonder could she really fall for a guy like Noah? She seems to want too or does she? I can't recommend Underdog or Kristen Mae books enough. She is the queen of dark and twisted; sweet and loving. I would also like to add that after every book I feel like I have to process everything. I sit there kinda shell shocked haha. -- Lynn S

This book will have you on the edge of your chair! Dark, twisted and profound with bits of compassion and eagerness. Do you feel hatred toward the right character? Maybe feel bad for the wrong one.. who knows! This book has so many twists and turns, it was hard to put down. I love all of Kristen’s books and this one certainly is no different.

You’re never quite sure what you will get when you pick up a new book from Kristen Mae. That is the beauty of Mae’s writing: she’s too good to stick to just one type of story. That’s not totally true—you know a few things when you read any of this author’s books. You know the book will make you feel, will make you question what you know about sexuality, and will make you wonder about the human condition. And you for sure know a book by Kristen Mae will be a delicious read full of rich character development. Some characters jump off of the pages while others beg you to look a little closer. Underdog is definitely different from her other books, but different is not bad. Different in this case makes you think and wonder just how Mae can get into the head of characters with so many layers. The tempo of this book is steady and sure, yet you really aren’t sure where it will end up. So you keep reading with curiosity and a disgust with your ability to like and loathe a character at the same time. Noah seems predictable. But is he? And Addison seems to have a plan. But does she? Underdog will have you wondering what’s real and what’s just an attempt to make it out of this world with your soul still intact. You will not be disappointed with Mae’s latest. Underdog will make you wonder if the underdog is always worth rooting for. Pick Mae—you can’t lose.

Dark, gritty, haunting, poignant, disturbingly erotic, and sensual in ways that will make you reexamine your own ethical boundaries. Kristen Mae blows my mind in a new twisted way with every book! DO NOT MISS THIS ONE.

It's easy to think you're a moral person until you're faced with the ultimate test. This is what happens to Noah when he accidentally finds himself caught between what he knows is right and what every fiber of his being is telling him he wants. You won't be able to put this book down, and you might even find yourself rooting for the underdog in this disturbingly twisted and erotic novel from best-selling author Kristen Mae.
