When We Met, features four romantic short stories involving different girls. They all live off campus together in their junior year of college in Michigan. This New Adult anthology features authors A.L. Jackson, Molly McAdams, Tiffany King and Christina Lee. Romances with all of the feels, I enjoyed meeting these girls, and trying a few new to me authors.
Behind Her Eyes by A. L. Jackson- Misha’s sophomore year was the stuff of nightmares, and I truly felt for her. If left to her own devices she may very well have dropped out of school. Thankfully, her friend convinces her to return. She is guarded, but a relationship with her swoon-worthy neighbor proves that time heals all wounds. I adore Jackson’s writing style, she has this way of creating fleshed-out characters that you connect with, complete with all of the “feels,”
Saving Me by Molly McAdams-– McAdams is a new to me author, and I enjoyed the tale she spun with Indy and Kier. Indy is in pain, and loses herself each weekend in a bottle. She does not know this but each week a silent knight named Kier looks out for her. This story was filled with a slow-burning romance and and the author added a twist. I enjoyed their story.
Fouling Out By Tiffany King- is all about second chances and creating your own path. Courtney and Dalton were best friends, and she had a serious crush on him in high school. Pressure from his Dad had Dalton breaking off the friendship and leaving Courtney floundering. Now the two meet again, and Dalton wants a second chance. This was a nice mix of sweet and hot. I found myself caught up in their story and closed the tale smiling.
Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee- was hot. We see growth, trust and share an exciting game of Truth or Dare as Courtney and Blake discover looks can be deceiving. Lee not only gives us a romance, but also shares Courtney’s story of personal and professional growth. I found myself rooting for them both. This was my favorite of the bunch and I look forward to trying more of Lee’s books.
When We Met was, an enjoyable anthology and I loved how they were all connected. This is the perfect way to try new authors. Each story was well developed and kept me engaged.
