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.**
“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.”
What girl doesn’t dream of her happily ever after? Having it all mapped out for you before you even go to college…this sounded perfect to Lilly. She and Sander were high school sweethearts and they were headed off to college to start their new lives, their best friend Lauren was going with them. Seems like it should be wonderful! Well within the first 2 chapters I already disliked Sander and Lauren. I could tell that they were not as good as Lilly perceived them to be, I mean come on, they ditched her at their first ever college party…no call or text, just disappeared.
Well, I am glad that this happened because it allowed Lilly to leave that party and end up meeting a new group of people. She has an immediate connection with them and they bring her to another party…this is where she meets Colton. Standing in the kitchen all sexy with his tattoos, lip ring, and ear gauges. I loved him from the start! He was just such a nice guy, a gentleman if you will.
Colton and Lilly begin to spend time with each other, seeing as Sander is too busy and is a complete twatwaffle. I don’t really know what he was like in high school but this version that Sander seems to be turning into pisses me off. You can see that Lilly is torn and that she really wants things to work out. However, she cannot deny her attraction to Colton, she is nervous around him but they have this ease when they are together.
When Sander hurts Lilly, first by being on drugs and then by physically harming her, she turns to Colton to come get her. He of course complies and is amazing.
“ ‘What do you mean I had no reason to come and get you? You said you needed me so I came,’ he says it with honest confusion in his voice.”
I was ecstatic that he rescued her, knight in shining armor and all that. I was really pulling for Lilly to come to her senses and move on with her life, away from Sander. I mean, all she could really think about anyway was Colton.
“He hasn’t left my mind since the moment I met him at that first party at his house, and I think he might always stay there.”
