BOOK REVIEW: When We Met: Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee




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…



Blia’s review: 5 stars

I had the opportunity of reading Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee, a short story from When We Met and love every minute of it.  It’s not because Christina Lee is a favorite author of mine and I’m being biased but it’s something about the stories and characters she writes that I feel such a deep connection with.

Take Chloe and Blake for instance.  These two were not keen of one another and my immediate reaction is how is Christina going to make these two characters fall in love?  Because this is after all, a short story but she did just that and then some!  You know the game Truth or Dare?  I believe Christina has taken this game to a whole new level of sexiness.

Now onto my review.

Chloe and Blake’s story has a unique edge to it.  What I mean is it feels realistic.  They weren’t looking for love. Heck, they weren’t even each other’s #1 fan.  But after being forced to work on a project together, they start seeing past the judgement they’d assumed on each other and called it a truce with a game of truth or dare.  Once that barrier was broken the sexy, flirty banter that volleyed back and forth between them were a sight to be seen and felt.

I hope that Christina will surprise us with more of Chloe and Blake’s story.  I love to see how their story plays out after they became a couple because how they came to be made me fall in love with their story.
