Becoming More blog tour, teaser, giveaway and review

Becoming More
Author: Bayli Lane

Genre: New Adult Romance


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.**



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.

Dee's review

I am going to admit, I started reading this a little skeptical it was going to follow so many other storylines that are out there right now. During the book while I was reading, I had flashbacks of Beautiful Disaster and Taking Chances, due to the college setting. So I was worried it was going to use that same idea. Though it kind of reminded me of those other books at times, there really was no comparison. So don't worry. Besides the college setting and drama, that was really all they had in common. Oh wait.. did I mention there is a tatted, muscled up hottie! Oh yeah, that may be a common thread between the stories. But that's it. College and hotties. Okay.. So Lillie, Lauren and Sander have been best friends forever. Lillie and Sander have been in love and together for four years. So it is supposed to be rainbows and lollipops that they are going off to college together, right?? MMMMEEEEHHHH.

 That's where we're all wrong.  Within the first couple chapters your know something is up. You can feel the fishy vibe coming off the book, well more Lauren than anyone else. You're just waiting for it to go down.  Lillie goes to a party with Sander and Lauren, only to get ditched. So she decides to go back to her dorm. On the way she meets Candace... BOOM INSTANT FRIENDS. And actually a good friend, who knew those existed!

 Through Candice Lillie meets Oliver, Colton and some other new friends. When she describes Colton, I literally did a little dance in my head. Tatted, muscled up, singer. Yes please! dance..dance..dance.. yes...yes..yes.. So I am thinking instantly she's going to go for him and break up with douchecanoe...I mean Sander. MMMMEEEEEHHHH. 

wrong again. So then Sander starts to get into some bad stuff. He starts treating her badly. So she's going to leave, right? She's not going be allow him to treat her like that... MMMEEEEEHHHHH.

 Nope. This instantly stopped my internal head dancing and got me pissed. Why. Why do they have to stick around? It's like a scary movie. . why do people run upstairs? Well.. why do they stick around? You know this stuff is gonna kill you!!! Anyway... She pretty much has the a fallen angel turned devil on one side, and a saint and amazing man on the other. Easy choice right?!! MEEEEEHHHHH. Nope, not for Lillie. See why I was getting pissed yet!??? I'm like Lill, come ON!  Goodness gracious woman, make up your mind. Let's go. Get on with it. I'm not telling you who she picks or what happens. I am also not going to tell you what happens with her back stabbing bitch of a best friend. This story is a irritating, maddening, beautiful story of not only friends and love, but kharma too. It really is a beautiful love story that will have your emotions all over the place, and leave you with a smile on your face. I really liked it. I give it 4 hearts.
