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…

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I've been a Young Adult kick for a few months now, so when I saw this book was coming out, I thought I'd give it a try...and I'm glad I did! From page one I fell in love with all of the characters and genuinely cared about them. There were times where I was reading this book in a public area and blushed during several scenes, but I felt that it was written tastefully.

Misha is the first character we are introduced to and I immediately felt a connection with her. I've been wronged by guys in college before and there where times where I just wanted to pack up and go home. I think her situation was relatable and the relationship she forms with Darryn was believable. I was left wanting more of Misha's story, and that's always a good thing.

At first I thought, "there's no way I will like any of the characters after Misha's story"...but I was wrong! I fell in love with Indy just as fast. She's the party girl who drinks to forget her boy problems, which is something I've seen a lot of college girls do on a weekly basis. She was quirky and funny, but also sad and troubled. I think that she was perfectly matched with Kier, a quiet but also troubled boy. They needed each other to help them move on and grow. Again, I was wanting more at the end of her story!

Courtney was next and I was really curious about her because you don't really see her character in the other stories that much because she's always working. I knew shortly into her story, that we were the most alike. I grew up having the biggest crush on this guy who ended up being the captain of the football team and then we went to college together as well! I wanted to die when I saw him freshman year! I felt those same emotions again while reading Courtney's story and Dalton was the perfect fit for this story. Her part wasn't long enough either!

Chloe reminded my of Sex in the City mixed with The Devil Wears Prada. The other girls in the story were not as girly as Chloe, so it was nice surprise to see her into fashion. Finally I get the bad boy I was looking for. Don't get me wrong, the other boys were all delicious, but I was hoping for someone with a little more edge...and in comes Blake. I loved watching the relationship between Chloe and Blake change and grow.

Overall, I REALLY enjoyed this book and I know that I will be buying other books from these authors. Their writing was on point and they all fit so smoothly together.
