Becoming More Blog Tour




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.*



Review 
4 Stars

Sometimes freedom changes people and it is not always for the better. When Lilly headed off to college with her best friend Lauren and her boyfriend Sander she thought it was them just continuing on their journey, because not being with Sander never factored into her mind. But sometimes you never know who someone really is until they have had a chance to let loose.  As Lillys relationships with Sanders and Lauren become unstable, she grows closer an closer to Colton and Clarissa.  My goal here is to stay SPOILER free because a lot of stuff goes down in Becoming More, just in case you were wondering about me being all vague. Clarissa has basically taken over Laurens role as her best friend, you know since Lilly barely ever even sees Lauren. But Colton oh dear sweet, sexy, tattooed, loyal as all hell, and funny to boot Colton! Her attraction to him is immediate, and almost makes her forget all about Sander ALMOST. Colton slowly becomes one of Lillys closest friends and even sometimes her savior, but yet she still can't deny that her feelings for him might be becoming more(haha you see what I did there ).  You know how some stories featuring a love triangle or a girl who already has a boyfriend crushing on a new guy sometimes leave a bad taste in your mouth? Well Becoming More IS NOT LIKE THAT, I had a hard time putting this one down, it dealt with a lot of issues drugs and alcohol being some of them (NOT SPOILING ANYTHING!!) and I thought that they were handled very well by the author. I really liked Lilly as a character, though at times I may have wanted to throttle her all in all she was a pretty strong female character. I also liked a few of the background characters, and hope to 'maybe' see more from them? Maybe? I don't know but it would be cool lol. I think you should for sure give this one a go, it is well written, great characters, and a great story line. 



Excerpt
“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.”

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.
