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…

*I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Combining the talents of four different authors, each one telling a part of the story with two alternating POVs (one girl/one guy), all while taking place during the same time frame to create one larger story is a really interesting idea.

I was afraid it would be difficult to keep up with the different characters, but the writing styles are close enough that each one compliments the others. It provides all of the elements fans of new adult enjoy - heartfelt story lines about love, friendship and romance with characters they can easily relate to. And there is no lack of smexy times either. 

WHEN WE MET might also expose readers to new authors (like it did for me) which is always a plus!
