Becoming More - 4 stars
Becoming More is about a girl named Lilly going to college with her boyfriend, Sander of 4 years and her best friend, Lauren of even longer. She is really excited about college and freedom and also looking forward to her future with Sander. She has always pictured marrying him and spending the rest of her life with him. Once in college she notices that both Sander and Lauren are hanging with the wrong crowd and changing to people she doesn't recognize. Sander once always sweet and caring is slowly becoming rude and disrespectful and even abusive. Lauren who has always been a little out there but at the same time she listened and was a good friend to Lilly, is now never around and doesn't even believe her when Sander becomes abusive.
Luckily Lilly meets Clarissa and her group of friends. They help keep her mind off Sander and Lauren. The night she meets them she sees one of their friends named Colton. He is not even her type but she cant keep her eyes off of him. He is gorgeous and tattooed and has a lip ring. She becomes a lot closer to him over the weeks. He is everything that Sander isn't.He is a sweet caring and a loyal friend who she can't help but wish for a future with even when she doesn't want to let go of the future she wants with Sander.
I really loved this book but it drove me crazy how Lilly kept making excuses for Sander once he abused her and started treating her that way. It took her a long time to realize her feelings for Colton and that someone who truly loved her would never treat her that way. I absolutely loved then ending when she finally made the decision to put Sander and Lauren in her past and make Colton and their group of friends her future. I also loved that at the end it what ended up happening to Sander and Lauren and then what happened with Lilly and Colton 5 years later. A great end to the book :)
