WHEN WE MET Release Day Event ~ Giveaway/Reviews

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…


I really loved this one! Nothing like getting 4 stories by 4 of today's most talented authors all in one book. I loved that even though each author has her own unique writing style the stories blended well together. There were characters that I loved from the get go but then there were a few I didn't like until the end. Not all of the heros had me in their corner. For me, sometimes no matter what the intentions, somethings just can not be forgiven. My blog mate and I did not agree on this subject. The character is Darryn from Behind Her Eyes. Once you read it you will understand my struggle.

This was my first time reading anything by Tiffany King and Christina Lee and I was really impressed by both. Of course A.L. and Molly outdid themselves as usual. If you are looking for something different that will pull your emotions all over the place, grab When We Met. You wont be disappointed!

5 Stars ~ Christy


 Behind Her Eyes: A.L. Jackson 

I figured I would write this review just how the story is, in parts. I'm a huge fan of AL Jackson and she solidified my love with Misha and Darryn's story. I love how AL can just grab your heart right away with her words. Her writing is absolutely beautiful. I felt every emotion of this story. I felt the attraction that Misha and Darryn had for each other. I also felt the torment of Misha's past. 

The part that killed me while reading was the alluding to her past. You as the reader get bits and pieces of what happened. I started to piece the parts together and I too was angry for Misha. I hoped that Darryn wasn't involved like I thought he was. I wasn't ready to have my heart broken. 

 I loved this story and Darryn captured my heart. Misha was a warrior and I love that in a heroine. They are really a sweet couple and I loved every word of the first part of this book. 

Saving Me: Molly McAdams

OMG! I was totally enthralled with this part of the book. At the end of this part I said, "That's it?" I wanted her to keep going.  I loved Kier and Indy. Molly McAdams once again moved me with her words. I love the intensity with which she writes. I often found myself holding my breath and just waiting for the ball to drop. 

At one part in the book, when we find out why Kier is so quiet, I broke down. I cried my eyes out during that part and I didn't think I would end of feeling the same for Kier, I really expected to hate him. I think that goes to show how much Molly's writing can make you change your mind. She made me look at it from another aspect and I truly hurt for Kier. 

I absolutely loved the plot with Indy and her not remembering (this you will understand after reading). I really liked that part of the story and thought it made for a more interesting twist. 

Overall, I loved Saving Me and thought the second part of this book was fantastic. 

Fouling Out: Tiffany King 

This was my first book reading Tiffany and I can tell you it won't be my last. I really loved her characters. Courtney was sassy, spunky and sarcastic, all things I love in a leading lady. Dalton was a character I really loved. I like when an author writes a cocky alpha who gets knocked down a peg or two by the heroine.

This story was funny, refreshing and a very sweet story of childhood friends who grow up and realize that maybe there is more to said friendship. I loved her writing and I'm really looking forward to more from her. 

Beneath Your Layers: Christina Lee 

Now this is my kind of story. I loved the tension build up between these two characters. Blake and Chloe are two feisty people. While at first they don't like each other, you can just feel the attraction building in them. I found myself smiling big while reading this story. 

Blake has a messed up life. He doesn't come from money and his life is misunderstood by others. I really liked that about him. He was strong, caring and sweet. 

Chloe has had a life of privilege, and her life is planned out for her by her mother. I loved seeing Chloe come into her own. With Blake's help, she learned to think and speak for herself. 

Overall: I really loved this book. It was my first multi-author book and it was very well done. I loved reading about the lives of these couples and highly recommend it to anyone. 

I give this book 5 Stars! ~Jen 
Great Book, Ladies!

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.
