Genre: New Adult Romance

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. She can’t look away, doesn’t want to look away.

Lilly must decide between a life with Sander, a life she always thought she wanted, and an unknown path with Colton.

Will Lilly make the right choices for her future, Becoming More?

**This book is a New Adult Romance – intended for a mature audience.**



“That looked like more than friendship to me,” Clarissa explains. “That looked like you two wanted the entire world to see you were together.”

My eyes widen. “No way! We didn’t kiss or anything!”

Clarissa crosses her legs. “Lilly, do you really think that’s the only way to show people around you that you are taken? Colton was all but pissing on you, telling all the other guys around that you are his.”

“But I’m not his,” I argue.

“You sure about that?” she asks kindly.

“I’m nobody’s.” I look down at my hands and rub them against my jeans.

“Well then you should probably tell Colton that. I don’t think he got the memo.”

“Oh please! You’re the one that told me he likes to mess around with a bunch of different girls! You said he doesn’t do relationships,” I tell her.

“I also told you that he’s different with you. I’ve never seen him act like that with a girl before. He’s in to you.”


Becoming More was a wonderful debut novel by Bayli Lane.  I read it in one sitting and really enjoyed the storyline.  A touching story of finding yourself and living the life you want to live, not the life you are expected to live.  Lilly is  a sheltered girl who thinks she has her life all figured out.  Go to college with her high school sweetheart, graduate, get married and live happily ever after.  But reality proves that you can plan all you want but it doesn’t mean it will happen.  There is a whole other world out there just waiting to be explored.  There were times I wanted to reach in and smack Lilly around for holding on so tight to her past and not living her future.  That was the beauty of the story, you really had to watch her struggle to come to turns that your plans always don’t turn out.  That high school sweetheart may not be the same guy you fell in love with.  You may fall head over heels for a man you would never expect.  Colton was just dreamy.  With the hot tattoos and the heart of gold, I fell in love.  The way he stood by Lilly through her ups and down were beautiful.  If you are looking for a coming of age story about a girl on her path to self discovery this is a must read.  Also if you like hot guys with tattoos you don’t want to miss Colton!! Bravo Ms. Lane, I look forward to reading much more from you!!

About the Author


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.
