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.
BENEATH YOUR LAYERS by Christina Lee
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…
Each story focuses on the complicated lives and romances of the girls Misha, Indy, Courtney, and Chloe. I enjoy stories based around friendship groups because they have the bonus of being able to introduce characters gradually and to link common themes. I'm not going to play favourites because I enjoyed all of the stories, that being said, I did have my fav couple (no I'm not going to name them).
Misha is broken and troubled. She trusted the wrong people and suffers with insecurity. It's up to new neighbour Darryn to bring her out of her shell. Indy hides her troubles with boys, partying and garlic bread until Kier (love the name) challenges and infuriates her. Courtney and Dalton's backstory is a little different from the others but I loved the waitress and the jock elements. Chloe's determined and kinda uptight. She likes control and organisation and is the complete opposite to dreamer Blake.
When We Met is a sweet, charming and fun anthology with lots of angst and drama. I really appreciated how the stories were all different, yet somehow fit seamlessly together. Some of the stories were sweet and cute, whilst others had more chemistry and naughty bits (they all had their moments here).
