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.**
*sigh* Growing pains. As annoying as the Lilly may have seemed for a little while due to her inability to let go... it's classic. We all grow up and have trouble letting go of what once was. The thing is, things change and sometimes you have to let go because what you're hanging onto is just a memory and not what actually is anymore. What a harsh reality :-/. It's tough growing into who you are and who you are meant to be. It's tough becoming more.
You'll hate Sander. Your heart will hurt for Lilly. You will want her to become more. Who better to help her do that than a tatted up, sexy guy named Colton? No one! If you're looking for a HEA, Becoming More delivers. It's tough seeing such a sweet girl be treated so harshly by the two people she cares a lot about, but it's also bittersweet because you get to see her learn that people change... sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. Either way, the world keeps spinning and it may just spin you right to what you've been looking for! This is a wonderful debut novel from Bayli Lane. She'll make you love and hurt for her characters. I can't wait to read more of her work.
“Sander, I have to get home or my parents are going to kill me! I’m late!” I exclaim.
Sander chuckles as he continues kissing down my neck, leaning over the console in his car.
He pulls away and glances at me with sparkling eyes. “Baby girl, we leave for college tomorrow. What are they going to do? Ground you from what? You won’t even be living at home.”
I giggle and ignore the gnawing guilt in the pit of my stomach for not being home on time.
He places his lips against mine. Our mouths begin to move together slowly, passionately.
“I love you,” he whispers against my lips.
“I love you, too,” I say back and then kiss him again.
“College is going to be the best thing that’s ever happened for us. We won’t have to rush back home. I’ll get to hold you all night long. I can see you whenever I want,” Sander says thoughtfully.
“More sex is what you really want to say,” I chastise but smile.
“That too,” he agrees nodding his head up and down.
“Tell me that we’ll be okay, Sander,” I plead.
He smiles at me lovingly and cradles my head in his hands. He looks me deeply in the eyes. “Lilly, baby, we’re going to be even better than we are now. I’m going to get my degree, work for my dad… Then I’m going to buy you a ring and make you my wife. College is the first step in making everything we’ve ever wanted a reality.”
“Promise?” I ask.
“I swear. Nothing could ever change the way that I love you, Lilly. Nothing,” he says with conviction.

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.
