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.

This is Bayli Lane's debut novel, but you would never know it. Her writing style and ability to pull you into the story is that of a seasoned writer. She sucks you in and makes you feel as though you are the main character, you can feel each and every emotion as though they are your own. This is a 5 star read for me and I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Bayli has a fan for life and I will gladly read anything she writes. The story line is so real and relatable, not that fluff stuff you read about girls falling in and out of love every second. This book is about young first love and how hard it is to let it go or hold on to it, it's about heartbreak, lies and deceit, betrayal, finding yourself and becoming your own person. 

Lilly and Lauren have been best friends, like sisters since they were 10 years old. They have done everything together. Lilly and Sander have been seriously dating for the past 4 years. The three of them are inseparable. Lilly and Sander are head over heels in love and know they are forever, they have their whole future all planned out. College, Marriage, Family, Happily Ever After. The three of them start college together excited of all the possibilities, meeting new people and making new friends together. It doesn't take long for things to start changing and Lauren and Sander to make their own friends, leaving Lilly behind.

As Lilly adjusts to her new life, she makes new friends and one of those friends just happens to be the sexy bad boy Colton. The first time they meet it's instant chemistry, sparks flying, fireworks, the whole shebang. Lilly decides to ignore this and just be friends with Colton, she loves Sander and he is her life and her future, even if he has become distant. Lilly will do whatever it takes to make Sander remember what the have together, but as things start to change drastically Lilly will have to make the hardest decision of her life. Stay with Sander, the first boy she ever loved, her best friend, the boy who knows everything about her or leave him behind and move on with her life, with Colton, the bad boy who is all sorts of bad news.

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.
