At first it was all freedom, fun, and games for Lilly Fairfield. Being a freshman in college was supposed to create some of the best memories of her life, especially with her best friend, Lauren, and longtime boyfriend, Sander, by her side.
But the excitement begins to slip away when the people closest to her start to change. They begin moving in a direction Lilly doesn’t want to go, forcing Lilly to be faced with a decision. Should she fight for her relationships with both Sander and Lauren or move on to something different? Something unknown. Someone like…
Colton Davenport. Colton isn’t Lilly’s typical type. He's shockingly sexy with his colorful tattoos, shiny silver lip ring, and ear gauges. His smile alone leaves her breathless. Then again, she hasn’t had a specific type other than Sander. When she meets Colton she feels an automatic attraction that stuns her into utter stillness. She can’t look away, doesn’t want to look away.
Lilly must decide between a life with Sander, a life she always thought she wanted, and an unknown path with Colton.
Will Lilly make the right choices for her future, Becoming More?
**This book is a New Adult Romance - intended for a mature audience.**
I rated Becoming More with FIVE LEAVES. I want to start off by saying that this is a wonderful book and I recommend it to ALL of our FALLowers! Lilly is headed off to college to experience everything she has every dreamed about. She gets to be truly on her own and she doesn't have to answer to her over protective parents anymore. She also gets to spend unlimited time with her current boyfriend of 4 years and the guy she is destined to marry, Sander. Lilly starts her college career off finding that things don't always stay the same. Sometimes, people change and it is not always for the better. Lilly goes to her very first college party to find out it is not everything she wanted it to be. When her best friend and boyfriend ditch her, she starts the walk back to her dorm alone. Little did she know, this is when her world would change. She meets a group of people on the way back to the dorms. Clarissa is one of these people. Lilly ends up at another party with Clarissa and the crew. This is when she meets Colton. Lilly knows from the moment she meets him that he is different. Lilly and Colton form a friendship and she is closer to him than she is any other person. Can Lilly and Colton be just friends? Isn't Lilly meant to be with Sander? He is all she has ever known. Throw drugs and infidelity into the mix and everything in this book gets turned upside down. I was sucked into this book from the beginning and I'm sure you will be as well!
“That looked like more than friendship to me,” Clarissa explains. “That looked like you two wanted the entire world to see you were together.”
My eyes widen. “No way! We didn’t kiss or anything!”
Clarissa crosses her legs. “Lilly, do you really think that’s the only way to show people around you that you are taken? Colton was all but pissing on you, telling all the other guys around that you are his.”
“But I’m not his,” I argue.
“You sure about that?” she asks kindly.
“I’m nobody’s.” I look down at my hands and rub them against my jeans.
“Well then you should probably tell Colton that. I don’t think he got the memo.”
“Oh please! You’re the one that told me he likes to mess around with a bunch of different girls! You said he doesn’t do relationships,” I tell her.
“I also told you that he’s different with you. I’ve never seen him act like that with a girl before. He’s in to you.”
Bayli Lane didn’t realize how much she loved creating a world from nothing until college. She went to Marian University where she majored in Communications but in her spare time wrote and read. Her love for reading is what really brought out her desire to create her own novel. After starting loads of stories and not finishing them, she finally decided it was time to put her passion to work. Becoming More is her first novel but certainly not her last. Bayli lives with her husband, Tim, in Indiana where she is probably sitting with a large cup of coffee and her computer working on her next book.
