Blog Tour: When We Met


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…
This set of short stories focusing on four college girls who share the same house.  Each one is written by a different author but the stories are intertwined.  Each tells the story of how they  met their significant other.
Behind Her Eyes by A.L. Jackson
Mischa has returned to college and her room mates after an awful experience with a guy three months earlier.  Hunter was a sweet guy who said and did all the right things to gain her trust and then completely shattered it, leaving her humiliated.  So much so that she went home for several months to recover.
Mischa is happy to be back and knows that she needs to get back to the life she had before she met Hunter.  Then she meets the new guy next door, Darryn.  He is all kinds of hotness and there is obvious attraction between the two of them.  He senses her hesitation and takes very small steps of sweet gestures and conversations with Mischa, in an effort to get he to trust him.  Mischa is weary of giving her trust to any guy but she does not have any reason not to trust Darryn and slowly opens up to him.
Will Darryn be the guy to show her that not all guys are like Hunter and that she can have faith in the two of them?
Saving Me by Molly McAdams
Indy is done with her parents and cannot get back to college fast enough to be with her boyfriend Dean.  He will help her forget about them.  Until she walks into his room to find him not alone, shattering everything she thought she knew about him.
She falls into a spiral of partying, drinking and sleeping with random guys.  She wakes up alone most mornings in her own bed, having no recollection of how she got there.  On one of her less drunken nights at the place next door she stumbles into Kier's bedroom, he seems kind of familiar to her but what she feels the most with him is safe.
Indy is intrigued by Kier and his quiet, almost shy demeanour.  He has spent more time with her than she realises and knows more about her than she understands.  Will he be the person to make her realise that she is worthy of love?  When Kier decides to open up to Indy, will she still see him the same way? 

Fouling Out by Tiffany King
Courtney and Dalton were childhood besties until one day he just stopped talking to her and hanging out with her, even right through high school, as if she didn't exist.  Dalton is now a big shot in college basketball and will probably get signed by the NBA.
Courtney works at the local sports bar Gruby's and it seems that it is the bar of choice for Dalton's team.  She comes face to face with him and decides to play it cool.  Dalton is shocked but really happy to see her, he is also a bit confused about her cool demeanor towards him.  He is determined to become friends with her again.
Dalton finally opens up to her about what happened all those years ago but can she trust that he is being sincere in his desire to be with her or is she just another girl in his 'harem.'  These two could be great together but they are going to have to work for it and Dalton is going to need to make some changes in his life and fight for what he really wants.
Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee
Chloe  is a passionate design student and works at Threads for her internship credits. She loves the fashion world and likes to wear designer clothes as much as possible.  Image is everything and her mother is a key influencer in her life, albeit uninvited.
Chloe's boss, Jaclyn, comes up with a great idea for her final project.  To design and open a pop-up store.  Her nephew Blake will be made available to help with all renovation and building requirements.  He has gorgeous eyes and a flawless body.  Chloe cannot stand his cockiness and working with him will be a challenge.
Chloe has heard rumours about Blake and doesn't know what to make of him.  Turns out that these two have more in common than they realise and as time passes they find a middle ground with each other.  This turns into a burning attraction that Chloe seems hell bent on fighting.  She is going to have to let go and learn to just feel, live in the moment if she wants to truly be happy.
I really enjoyed reading these short stories and I love how they seem to just effortlessly mesh together.  Like they were all written by the same person.
I give this 4 stars.

Molly McAdams:

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.
