Blog Tour - When We Met Anthology

Title: When We Met
Authors: AL Jackson, Molly McAdams, Tiffany King & Christina Lee
 Release Date: November 4, 2014

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.


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…


When We Met is a collection of four stories by four different authors that intertwine four college roommates, who all learn lessons in life and love. I really enjoyed reading this anthology. It flowed flawlessly from story to story, and I had a hard time believing that four different people wrote it.

Behind her Eyes by A.L. Jackson

In the first story we meet Misha and Darryn. Misha had a hard time trusting after being burned by an ex-boyfriend.  Darryn is the bad boy who moved next door and their chemistry is instant. 

“Damn it! He had me hot and bothered in places I didn’t even know existed.” 
Their story was one of learning to trust not only each other, but themselves as well.

Saving Me by Molly McAdams

In the second story we meet Indy and Keir. Indy is lost after her past catches up to her and she begins to spiral out of control. Keir is always there to save her. He is the sweetest. Having his own demons to fight, they learn to work through them together.  

“I’m your safe place, and when you’re ready, you’ll be mine. If you ask me, that means more than a bullshit label.”

Fouling out by Tiffany King

The third book was my favorite!! Courtney is sassy and sarcastic and gives Dalton, the star basketball player, a run for his money. Childhood friends who grew apart are brought back together in college and friendship is not the only thing on their minds anymore… 
“I’m not so sure of that. Dalton is pursing you like you’re holding the golden ticket to Wonka’s Factory. He wants your candy.”
This story had me laughing out loud a lot!

Beneath your Layers by Christina Lee

In the final book in the anthology we meet Chloe, an uptight fashionista who does what her mom wants, and Blake, the college dropout/construction worker. Assuming they are too different to have anything in common they ignore each other, until they are forced to work together. As we all know assuming can lead to all kinds of things and Chloe and Blake soon learn they have more in common than they think. 

“Truth is – you turn me on so much. It’s hard not to think about…touching you again. For whatever that’s worth.” 

This entire collection was sexy, fun, flirty, and fantastic!! I really loved seeing how all four girls were so different and how they learned to let someone in. I would love to see an extra novella with how all four couples are doing in the future.

~ Review by Tiffany

When We Met is an anthology about four roommates/friends that share a house off their college campus. Each one of them get their own story told in this great box set. AL Jackson and Molly McAdams are two favorites of mine. Tiffany King and Christina Lee are new-to-me authors, I'd not yet read any of their previous books, but I sure will be checking them out after reading this set. 

Though each story is novella length they're packed full of emotion and sexiness. Sometimes I have a hard time connecting novellas, I tend to like my stories full length and meatier. The way these stories were interconnected, yet told separately, really drew me in and held my attention. We get little peeks in to the lives of Misha, Indy, Chloe and Courtney and their leading men. 

All in all this was a fun and sexy anthology, with a little bit of angst thrown in for good measure. I definitely think some of these have some room for expansion and could get a full length novel. A great collection of new adult tales.

A.L. Jackson

A.L. Jackson is the New York Times bestselling author of Take This Regret and Lost to You, as well as other contemporary romance titles, including Come to Me Quietly, Come to Me Softly, Pulled, When We Collide, and If Forever Comes.

She first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student.  She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.

Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.

Molly McAdams

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.


Come be my friend!
