Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Sarah Daltry
Summary: (18+ New Adult Romance)
Lily had a crush on her brother's best friend, Derek for years - which led to their steamy night ten months ago in her bedroom. Now, Lily is going off to college and she and Derek are still going strong. However, when school starts, she realizes it's hard to maintain a relationship while also trying to live her own life. She and Derek find themselves falling apart and Lily has no idea where to turn.
Enter Jack. Everything about him is wrong for Lily and she knows it, but she can't stop herself from being attracted to him. When things implode with Derek, it's Jack who is there to pick up the pieces - and show Lily an entirely new set of experiences she didn't know she was missing.
Of course, Jack has his own problems and once Lily gets to know him better, she starts to wonder if she can handle all of Jack. When Derek reappears on the scene, Lily is forced to decide between two guys and herself. Can she find herself without losing the people who matter in the process?
See where it began in the short story, "Her Brother's Best Friend."
We follow along as Lily learns that finding herself as a freshman in her first semester in college can be harder than she imagined. This story lives up to it’s genre of romantic erotica fiction several times over. The writer, very ably, renders you speechless, whether it’s during Lily’s inner struggles trying to find her place with her new friends, her desire to experience more than her boyfriend is able to provide, or her homesickness as a new college student on her own. It’s a reasonably easy read and not in a bad way, but because you just get so caught up in Lily’s journey that before you realize it you’re half way through it and then all of a sudden you’re at the last page.
This is probably my favorite line in the whole story, where Lily learns just what the last 4 months have actually taught her.
My parents won’t be thrilled, but the one thing I’ve learned this semester is that this is
my life – and I need to do what makes me happy and what is right for me. And today,
One last thing, because this book is so good and very sexy at times, it’s probably not the kind of book you want to be reading in the breakroom at work or while the kids are in the room watching television, trust me on this one.
Rating: 4 out of 5 Honey Pots
He moves closer and already my body is responding. He smells like cigarettes and leather, two smells I never thought were sexy until now. I want to fall into his body, to be wrapped in his arms, and I fight it. It’s wrong and it makes no sense. I have everything I could ever want. Jack is just a distraction.
“I’m not that kind of girl,” I tell him.
He steps closer still and kisses my neck. His lips are soft, which is unexpected, and it sends a shiver through me. Jack brings me in to his chest. I can feel his heart beating; it’s quickening and it matches mine. I feel his tongue sliding down along my collarbone. There is nothing like this, but I need him to stop. And yet, I never want him to stop. “I’d love to know exactly what kind of girl you are.”
Almost as if they are not my own, my hands slip between his jacket and his shirt. The heat of his skin burns me even through the fabric of his clothes. His lips continue to travel downward, but as they reach the curve of my breasts, something in me wakes up. I tear myself away from him and back up a few inches.
“I have a boyfriend,” I repeat. “I can’t do this.”
“Where is he?” Jack asks. His eyes are burning.
“What?”“Where is your boyfriend? You’ve mentioned him before, but you run into me a lot for someone who’s so in love.”
