Publisher's Summary

In the heart of the Bible Belt, lines are getting blurred.

Liam Rush has never ventured too far outside the fences of his family farm, so college is a pretty big deal for him. Now he can finally claim his own identity - one that doesn't involve football, hunting, farm work, or four overbearing brothers. But when he finds himself falling for the androgynous dancer at Trybe, where he works as a bouncer, things get confusing. He's never been attracted to guys before. Not really. And what would the folks back home say if they knew?

Japanese American mix Blake Himura has been on his own since he was 17, with no one to depend on but himself. He's mere months away from realizing his dream of graduating college and becoming a dance instructor. Unstable men don't factor into his plans, least of all "straight" boys who don't mind ruining other people's lives to keep their dirty little secrets. Liam is exactly the kind of complication Blake doesn't need in his life. Unfortunately his heart hasn't gotten the memo.

Awesome

This story was so good and the narrator does a beautiful job of breathing emotion and life into the story as he read it.
A beautiful love story with realistic touches as these two men find their way past all the obstacles trying to keep them apart.
I think this is my favorite book in the SSU series!
5 stars all the way!

Sweet ending

First off Chris Patton did an outstanding job with the narration throughout this series. I Love the fact that all the Boys stick together and are in all the books. Each step through this last book has been a nail biter, just hold on and enjoy the ride. HEA in each book also a huge plus for me... Enjoyed this series through the romance package, glad I took a chance on it....

Maris Black + Chris Patton = perfection

I have loved everything by Maris Black so far and this book was no exception. Having Chris Patton narrate it makes it even better! I'm looking forward to more from both of them. I'm hoping poor Seth gets his own book soon. Fingers crossed!

What a way to end a magnificent series!

I haven't the words to say what a phenomenal team Maris Black and Chris Patton are! First off, the way that Chris Patton narrates is unprecedented. This man has talent that can't be rivaled! I especially love the way that he brought to life the different characters. Liam is by far my favorite! And the way that Maris Black writes takes my breath away!! I loved this series and want to sincerely thank Maris and Chris for bringing the men of SSU into my life!

Favorite installment of my favorite gay series!

Would you listen to Undeclared again? Why?

I have already listened to it multiple times. The characters all stuck out for me, the narration is an easy listen, and I overall enjoyed the story enough to want to go back and listen.

What about Chris Patton’s performance did you like?

His voice is easy to listen to, and he puts just enough emotion into the characters and story without going overboard. He differentiates the voices, but not so much that they sound like cartoons.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Sammy in general moved me more than I think he was supposed to as a supporting character. Without giving any major spoilers for any book plots, I'd say that Paul's bachelor party, the aftermath, and Sammy all made me emotional.

Any additional comments?

Couldn't recommend this book more highly. There's definitely some drama, some potential overdrama, but I legitimately cared if these two people ended up together.

Hot 🥵🥵🥵

I read Smitten a while back and decided to come back to Blake's story... I am so glad I did. Hot scenes and loved their story. I have to say my favorite line has to be "ssshhh we hunting wabbits" . Go ahead and listen to it ..you won't regret.

Loved Chris Patton's performance! Enjoyed the audiobook overall. I liked the characters but wish there was a little more character development, but not bad.

Started Great But Ended Confusing

Undeclared is the third book in the SSU series, a contemporary romance series (although a bit dated now) within a college setting. This book was a mixture of really enjoyable romance and drama and unnecessary and badly thought out plot twists. I really liked Blake and Liam’s romance, but throwing in all the drama with the false arrest that lasted two minutes and the fake confrontation with Blake’s mother made no sense and took away from the main plot. Plus, the ending was sweet, but uncomplete. I’m not even sure if Liam ever came out to his family or not. Nothing is clear because Maris Black just kind of threw her main plot away and took the readers on some confusing journey and then ditched them.

Chris Patton narrated the audiobook and did a great job. I enjoyed listening to him, and at least he was consistent with his narration and the quality of his performance, unlike Maris Black.

More passion and high drama in another great SSU romance!

Liam, a huge corn-fed SSU student, has gotten off on the wrong foot with slight, cocky dance student, Blake. When Liam gets a bouncer job and Blake gets a gogo dancing gig at the same night club, sparks fly. This had all the passion and over-the-top drama I’ve come to love in the SSU books, with Liam working hard to accept his feelings for Blake. The scenes with Liam’s family were sweet, the carpark fight was shocking, and the slow burn and chemistry off the charts! I felt uncomfortable with the use of ‘half-breed’ to describe Blake’s Japanese-American heritage, but maybe it’s not an offensive term in the USA? Chris Patton’s audio narration has been so pitch-perfect in this series, why don’t I see new audios by him? I’m sad this is the final book as we never got Seth’s HEA despite him being a prominent character throughout the series.
