Review for Forget Me Not by Sarah Daltry!!

Book Info:
Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Sarah Daltry
Blurb:
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."

THE REVIEW

The only complaint I have about this book is that it was so short.  I read the first novella which was VERY short about her and Derek finding their way to each other.  It was really good and really steamy which I always like to read.  I don't read steamy streamy novels often, but I do enjoy them when I do.

This is a continuation of Lily's and Derek's story.  She has arrived at college, and is madly in love with Derek.  She struggles to get used to the idea of being without Derek, since he's at a different college then her, and she's away from her family and friends for the first time ever.  

When she meets Jack, she's confused by him.  He's a bad boy, and she knows he's trouble.  But.. she likes him.  

Soon, she and Derek start having problems, and she doesn't know what to do.  Derek is her love, and the fact things aren't working out are horrible for her.  He is everything to her, and she is lost without him.  

Then Jack comes into the picture.  He is the bad boy her parents do not want her to be with.  The one they warned her about.  He has secrets of his own to deal with, and Lily struggles with everything she knows.  He is the polar opposite of Derek, but there is something about him that attracts her to him.  

When Derek comes back, Lily has a tough decision to make.  Either go back to Derek, or stay with Jack.  

I really loved this book, but didn't like that it was so short!  I wanted more!!  I can't wait to read the second book that is from Jack's POV.

THE EXCERPT:
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.”

I don't think I received the whole book then... the one I had was 96 pages on the PDF file... that's why I said it was too short! I still can't wait to read Jack's story!!!
