Becoming More is Bayli Lane's debut novel and I have to say that I enjoyed this book immensely.

This story starts off about three friends, Lilly, Sander and Lauren. Lilly and Sander have been boyfriend and girlfriend for 4 years and have plans to spend the rest of their lives together. Lauren is both of...more
I don't usually write reviews because I suck at them, well screw it this is an exception.

Firstly: Wow!
I haven't gushed throughout a book in so long. .
Today I put on hold a book I'm currently racing to finish city of bones so I could read this, and it was completely worth it.

Although I did find it slightly predictable, the predictability didn't take anything away from it, I was still so eager to find out how it ended and being a massive epilogue lover I was happily satisfied. Yep I'm currentl...more
WARNING!! this review will be a total rant!

Why oh why did I read this book??
Lets start with the few things I actually liked about this book. The storyline was good,but it dragged on for too long and that just annoyed me even more. Colton was the best thing about this book as well as his friends (especially Clarissa), I loved them all from the very beginning. I only wish that Lilly dumped dickwad Sander (what kind of name is that anyway???) and got with Colton from the start. Those were the on...more

Well Hells Bellz!!!! Becoming More by Bayli Lane. Hmmm ... What can I say about this book? How about WOW ... how about AMAZING!!!!

When you’re young and in love you think that nothing will every break up that perfect little bubble that has surrounded your high school clique. You think that when you go to college everything is going to be the same… well for some … yes it is … But for Lilly … yeah not so much! Lilly seriously got screwed the minute she showed up to college… Her longtime love Sande...more

Will the heart choose something old and familiar? Or venture off into something new and exciting?

Becoming More, had it all. I loved the characters. I loved the college experience I never had, I loved my intro to Steak N Shake ;)Here is a list of emotions I went through. I was pissed, happy, then angry, sad, annoyed, then happy again. It was beautifully written, and my girl Bayli Lane delivered! She kept her promise to me that's all...more

I have typed this 4 times now and thanks to GR some is lost I can not type this all again so your getting a now condensed review sorry.

Lilly Fairfield, 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.

That did not happen at all, on their first night out at college Lilly gets left by herself at a party while Sander and Lauren disappear on her. She decides to head back t...more
Here is my complete review:

Well, there were things I loved and small things I didn’t like (and that didn’t prevent me to be hooked) in this book…First thing I loved, for sure, is Colton. He is FREAKING AWESOME!!! A perfect blend of sweet and badass. Bayli should create a man for me in real life, seriously! I also loved how the book started with Lilly and Sander’s promises to each other, showing us how our young, high school dreams can have an influence in...more

WOW, I'm really gonna try and say more in this review but....WOW!!! I started reading this book and realized it was another book about a college couple...there are soooo many out there and they are pretty much all the same. Everyone is trying to recreate that one book! Well this is not like any of those others, this book stands all by itself!! I loved every happy, sad, pissed off moment of this book! Bayli Lane truly delivered with this one!! I love and hate that this is a stand alone book!! I l...more

"Most of the time we find that one person who shows us what true love really feels like. The kind of love that heals, strengthens, and pushes you to be a better person. It's the kind of love that's passionate and enduring. It's always forgiving. It's what I have with......."

I absolutely loved this book! From page one I was hooked. This book is so much more then just an everyday story. It leaves you asking what if. It shows you that real love does exist, you just have to open your eyes and look i...more

Becoming More is a very nice debut from new author Bayli Lane, and it should easily appeal to many fans of the New Adult genre.

Lilly, her high school boyfriend Sander, and her best friend Lauren all go away to college together. Lilly is ready to let loose and have fun—FINALLY. Things seem to be going perfectly for her and everyone in her life. In fact, it’s almost too good to be true. Yeah, well. You know what they say. So, when the people in Lilly’s life, the people closest to her, begin to cha...more

Alissa Evanson- A is for Alpha B is for Books
So I really liked this story idea... I liked Colton a lot and I liked the friend carissa n the band members a lot. Lilly was a good character I guess but we was extremely annoying. I did not like how she handled things at all...allowing herself to 're enter an abusive relationship. the entire book was her not being able to make up her mind. I felt the entire book kept repeating itself over and over again. It was Lilly being confused the entire time
She couldn't male up her mind. I understood par...more
It's late. I should be sleeping. I own a small business that I'm madly trying to grow right now and I have to make cupcakes at 4am, but I couldn't stop swiping pages on my kindle...and I can't rest until I leave a review.

This book is, in one simple word, unbelievable.

There are many reasons why I find this book to be wonderful, but the most important is this: I can relate to the main character, Lilly, so much that it isn't even funny. My circumstances hit in my adult life, though. Lilly's hit in...more

Absolutely Breathtaking , just beautiful. This book takes you on a amazing journey of fate,faith, growth and most of all COURAGE.

Lilly is a beautiful soul inside and out. She believes in people when they can't believe in themselves. She is the queen of second,third,fourth chances. She grows stronger throughout this book. She never loses who she is she just becomes a stronger version of herself.
Colton is just to amazing for his own good. He's seen Happily Ever After fall apart. He's seen soul mat...more
Desirae (Dee) Book Boyfriend Reviews
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 co...more

This was the book I read onmy cruise that I was so excited to share with you guys! LOVED IT!!!!

Becoming More is Bayli Lane's debut novel, and what a way to enter the author/reader community. I am so excited to follow her journey as an author!

This is a story of chances and choices. How a choice can ultimately effect your entire life! We follow Lilly on her journey of discovering herself and real love. She goes to college with her longtime boyfriend Sander and best friend Lauren. Lilly thinks she...more
I have to say that I'm not a fan of triangle love and it tends to irritated the hell out of me. And well, this book did that too.

I love how the book start with the prologue, their sweet promises. It's such a reflection of young and how innocent and naive we used to be. We believe in love that last forever never expecting that people would change. Circumstances change and life doesn't always go according to plan and how we hope it to be.

Bayli Lane did a good job in covering emotional struggles an...more

I received an ARC from the blog tour for an honest review.

When I saw this blog tour sign up I was soooo excited to read and review it. I have been watching Ms Layne’s page and have been so excited about this book! I was not disappointed! This was a great debut coming of age novel. The cover also grabbed my attention! That cover model is gorgeous! Just made me want to read it more!

I rated "Becoming More" with five (5) stars. I want to start off by saying that this is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to ALL of our FALLowers!! Lilly is headed off to college to experience everything she has ever dreamed about. She gets to be truly on her own and she does not have to answer to her over protective parents anymore. She also gets to spend unlimited time with her current boyfriend of four (4) years and the guy she is destined to marry, Sander. Lilly starts her college c...more
The story between Colton, Lily and Sander was challenging at times but worth the turmoil this book has to offer. Lauren is a major basket case and Sander is right there with her. Lily is a confused, young and naive girl who is just trying to find herself. Colton is a breath of fresh air in this story. It is a nice story and was beautifully written. Oh yea, love the HEA!!
This story was so interesting and so true in so many ways. I loved the Characters and the way Bayli tied them together. Being her debut novel, she knocked it out of the park...

The story was not rushed so you actually can relate to the characters and fall in love with them. The way Lilly felt about Colton the minute she saw him, the way the author describes the moment in details makes you feel like you were there!

The way Lilly fell in love with Colton and at the same time she tried to hold onto...more
This book was a good book where Lilly has to choice between the clean cut guy that has been hoyfriend for four years or bad boy colton that she has an insiant liking to the moment she see him . The only thing i didnt like about this book is we go in lilly head a little to much . I would recomond this book to someone that likes love tringles . I would read this again
Ada Marie

I loved this book. It was super amazing.

I think I hated Sander from the moment they went to the first party!!!

Bayli did just a great job with this storyline. I'm only sad that Colton is over with hehe.

I loved this book so much I skim through my favorite parts
I really enjoyed this book. At times I wanted to yell at Lilly to wake up. Once I started I couldn't put it down. Bayli kept the story flowing and made me want more. So happy with the way she ended it and the epilogue was one of my favorites.
I always love a good bad boy and Colton delivered. This book surprised me with the little things that I wasn't expecting and I love the way it all came together.

Lilly, her boyfriend, and best friend were starting out on their own in college but little did she know things would drastically change. Sometimes they aren't all for the best!! Her world is completely turned around and I really felt so bad for her and it broke my heart.

But then when Colton came into the picture, I loved their connection...more
