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.

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… 

Tiffany King & Christina Lee Stand Out In This Lovely Set Of NA Romace Novellas!

When We Met is a set of four New Adult romance, short stories. Often short stories lack a little something for me as there isn't enough time to build strong characters and  develop their stories. However the beauty of these novellas is that they all focus on a group of friends living in one house. Their stories intertwine and you get the overall feeling of reading one regular length story, about of the group of girls. All four authors writing styles complement one another and each novella flows perfectly onto the next.

Behind Her Eyes by A.J. Jackson:
Micha is very sweet and quite a shy girl. She's recently been hurt by guy, who deceived her badly, and now she's very reluctant to trust any man again. But the new guy next door Darryn has a way of getting under her skin. I loved seeing Micha grow and learn to trust again, but I would have loved to of seen her become stronger on her own. It felt like she came to rely on Darryn to 'save her', when it would have been great to see her take control of her life and see that she didn't need saving.

Saving Me by Molly McAdams:
On the surface, Indy is a party girl. She has a past that she wants to forget. She goes wild at night and next morning she can't remember how she got back to her room, and who took care of her. Kier is the complete opposite, he's very quite but extremely sweet. And while their story took a little while for me to get into it was really cute. Keir truly respects Indy and all he wants is to see her safe and happy - awww.

Falling Out by Tiffany King:
Courtney and Dalton used to be childhood friends. They were inseparable until slowly Dalton's basketball training took over and they drifted apart. Courtney was hurt and felt like Dalton deserted her, choosing sport over their friendship. But now that they are older, Dalton wants a second chance of friendship...and possibly more. I absolutely loved that Courtney made Dalton work for it. Their falling out might have been years ago, but it was great to see Dalton prove how much he cared for her. I loved the sexual tension that bubbled throughout the entire story and just exploded off the page by the end! I absolutely loved this one!

Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee:
Chloe & Blake are complete opposites, she's very driven and passionate to succeed in the fashion world. While Blake dropped out of college for mysterious reasons and works in the construction business. Chloe plans everything and has a million post it notes, while Blake likes to be carefree and spontaneous. Pushed together to work on a project for Blake's Aunty's clothing shop where Chloe works, they are forced to spend time together. And this when things get interesting. To pass the time they play truth or dare, and the flirty banter that goes back and forth is fabulous! I wanted to grab their faces and make kissy noises. I also loved as they got to know each other better they respected each other's differences. These two were just so adorable together!

I enjoyed all four novellas, although my favourites would have to be be Falling Out and Beneath Your Layers. The character and story development was beautiful and they both had a perfect balance of humour and romance!
