✯Release Day Review w/Giveaway✯When We Met by A.L. Jackson, Molly McAdams, Tiffany King and Christina Lee

Today’s premiere New Adult authors combine their talents to tell four original stories from inside one house.

When four girls decide to live off campus together as juniors at a college in Michigan, they expect it to be their best year yet. Little do they know, it’s a year that will change the rest of their lives.

BEHIND HER EYES by A.L. Jackson 
Unable to live down her ex-boyfriend’s deception, Misha is determined to avoid betrayal. When, the new guy next door, Darryn starts to get under her skin, her defenses start to crumble. But trusting Darryn seems impossible, especially if he’s not sure he can trust himself.

SAVING ME by Molly McAdams 
On the outside, Indy is always ready for a party—but inside she’s breaking. Kier makes a weekly routine of saving the girl next door from herself on Saturday nights… but when will she be ready to remember him on Sunday morning?

FOULING OUT by Tiffany King 
Working at a sports bar, Courtney has become a pro at sidestepping propositions from arrogant jocks—which makes her a more elusive catch for campus basketball star Dalton than he expected. But when he falls for the saucy waitress, Dalton will have to rethink his game plan to prove he’s not the jerk Courtney expects.

In order to ace her fashion internship, Chloe must team up with local college dropout and set builder, Blake—much to her chagrin. But after some "hands-on" experience, Chloe will have to ask herself if Blake factors into her carefully laid plans…

 ✯✯4 Bright Shiny Stars!!✯✯

This book is 4 different stories about 4 different girls. They're roommates and trying to deal with life, college, family and guys. All while trying to fix what was done to them in the past that has made them well them. The 4 guys are all just like the girls. They all have their own issues with their lives that they are dealing with. Every couple fit together perfectly!!

Behind Her Eyes by A.L Jackson 

Misha is back at the place she never wanted to go back too. After Hunter hurt her so bad she never wanted to step foot back at college or at her house she shared with her roommates. Esp since Hunter lived next door. Misha came back for 2 reasons. The 1st being Indy her 1 roommate begged her to come back. And, for her kids. The ones she helps. Luckily for her he was kicked out after his roommates found out what he did to her. Darryn now took Hunter's room. Misha nicknamed him her "man-boy-god". 

Misha just wants to go to school and not be noticed. But, after last semester she doubts that'll happen. Darryn not only knows what happened with Misha but saw the video. But, when he had his 1st run in with Misha it was not what her was expecting. He thought she was going to be feisty and all that good stuff. Instead, she's shy. Turns red easily. She has an adorable stutter.

Darryn does everything he can to help  Misha without her knowing. Because, he knows she's not ready. Misha wants to move past the whole incident. Misha finds out that Darryn knows everything.

But, these 2 are good for each other very well. My main complaint about this story was Darryn. I knew nothing about him! We knew he knew everything about what happened with Misha. But, everything else was a mystery. That was disappointing. But, other then that it was a great story.

Saving Me by Molly McAdams

This is the 1st I've read anything from Molly McAdams and it won't be my last. Out of all 4 stories. This one Indy & Kier had me the most emotional. I had felt for both of them. Both of them were fighting their own demons. And, they handled them both very differently.

Indy loosing the closest person to her. Then, her parents kicking her to the curb she comes back to college 2 weeks early. Indy runs to her boyfriend of 2yrs to find him with another girl. Indy is beside herself. The only person she has to rely on and now he's gone.

Indy is completely broken inside. So, every weekend she goes partying next door and getting completely drunk and sleeps with random dudes that she does not remember the next morning. She wakes up in her room and her bedroom door closed.

Kier hasn't had it easy. He's extremely quiet. He has always noticed Indy. Kier hates what her ex did to her. He can also see that something else deeper is going on with her. But, he will continue to stay on the sidelines and keep her safe. One day she will remember him.

One Saturday night a drunk Indy ends up falling into Kier's room. She instantly has deja vu but can't figure out why. Kier brings Indy home and she knows he is safe.

Indie is sober and she spends  more time together with Kier. Indy knows Kier is safe. But, can't put all the pieces together. Kier keeps telling her when that when she's ready he will tell her everything.

Molly McAdams kept me on the verge of my seat the whole time. When Kier told his story I cried. When Indy told hers I cried. This is a must read!!

Fouling Out by Tiffany King

Fouling Out honestly my favorite story out of the 4!! I love Courtney. She reminded me of me. Courtney hates jocks, works hard and doesn't put up with crap with anybody. So, when Dalton walks into Grubys, the sports bar she works at she wants to instantly beat his ass.

Dalton & Courtney grew up together and were best friends. Until Dalton got so caught up in basketball and forgot about Courtney. And, Courtney has never forgotten or forgiven him!

The minute Dalton saw Courtney again he'd give anything to talk to her again. But, he wasn't expecting Courtney to give him the cold silent shoulder. He finally gets her to spill what is going on. Dalton felt terrible for hurting Courtney.

Dalton did his hardest to win Courtney's friendship back 1st and go from there. Courtney missed Dalton and realizes maybe she was a little hard on him. I really liked watching these 2 go back & forth.

Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee

I hate to say that I'm not really sure how much I liked Chloe. She is all about fashion and wants that as her career. She has post-its for everything. Chloe picks out her clothes, shoes everything the night before. To me she's kind of stuck up.

Chloe works at a cute little boutique and her boss has an idea for her project for end of the semester. Chloe's boss plan has her working with her boss's nephew Blake. And, neither of them are happy about it. They had a misunderstanding that caused them to not want to be near each other.

Blake and Chloe soon realize that they were wrong about the other one. They decide to be "friends" and work together to get the job done. They play my favorite "truth or dare" game. Let me tell you every time one picked dare it got hot! Their chemistry was off the chain.

Both have family issues. Chloe's mom is so far up her butt she can't breathe. Blake mom has issues as well that caused him to drop out of college and work in construction. Blake's story broke my heart as well.

These 2 had a lot to deal with. They had decisions to  make. I really liked these 2. Blake brought out the Chloe that I ended up really liking.

I really did like this book. I wish it was longer. Like 4 full length books instead of short stories. Some parts felt rushed. Some characters I felt like I knew nothing about. But, I definitely would tell my friends to read it!!

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
