**BT & GIVEAWAY** Becoming More ~ Bayli Lane

Becoming More

Bayli Lane 


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.**

About the Author~

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.

Amy's Thoughts~

As a reader and review, I'm not normally a fan of love triangles. It's just messy. I really don't know that I would classify this as a love triangle. There's so much to say about this book and getting it done without revealing spoilers is difficult. Some of the things that happened, I called it from the beginning. It was kinda obvious to me. But I'm weird, it's how my brain works. I just saw it coming. 

Lilly is an adorably, shy, naive, 18 year old headed off to college out from under the shelter of her protective parents. She's headed off with her bestie Lauren, and her boyfriend of 4 years, Sander. To me, Lauren is one of those friends, "if-I-don't-get-what-I-want-I-pout-like-a-bitch" friends. I hate those. I've had a few in my life, and seriously, they are dead weight. Sander? Sander just gave me the creeps, straight from the beginning. I hope that was Ms. Lane's goal, cause she succeeded. And I gotta say, Sander lived up to his creepiness in my mind. 

Colton, he's my kind of guy. Hot, mysterious, tattooed, and the mostly loyal, best friend you could ask for. When things go south for Lilly and her "friend" and Sander, Lilly finds some new friends, one of which is Sander. And oh, what a good friend he is. Always available when Lilly needs him. Trying to talk sense into her. 

Props to Ms. Lane on keeping me on the edge of my seat. I didn't expect exactly everything that happened. When it was claimed in the synopsis, that her friends changed, I didn't really know what to expect. What I got was not it. Don't miss this fabulous book. It's definitely going to be one I read again and again. <3 

Character Casting~

These are my choices for the Cast of Becoming More ~


“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.”
