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."

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.


“Where is your boyfriend? You’ve mentioned him before, but you run into me a lot for someone who’s so in love.”

My Review:

Forget Me Not is an extremely fast paced, sexy read. It'll draw you in from the very first chapter, which jumps head first into the story. The first half of the book is pure sex (either in action or feeling) with a hint of a story line woven in there, but the second half packs one hell of an emotional punch! You'll be all hot & bothered one minute, then on the verge of tears the next. Ms. Daltry has written a very intriguing story, with characters that'll tug at your heart strings and situations that'll seem all too familiar for those who've had their hearts torn in two directions.

My only cons: It's kind of unrealistic how sexually experienced these kids are. Maybe I'm wrong but it just seemed like they where a bunch of 30 year olds trapped in teenage bodies. All the screaming during sex was a bit over dramatic for me, it kinda got a little ridiculous. But even with that being said, there is definitely no shortage on the steaminess.

My interest has been piqued enough where I can honestly say I'd like to read more of Ms. Daltry's books. And I would definitely recommend Forget Me Not to erotic romance lovers. Prudish types beware, this one is not for you.

About the Author: 

Sarah Daltry writes erotica and romance that ranges from sweet to steamy. She moves around a lot and has trouble committing to things. Forget Me Not is her second full length novel, although she also has several story collections and two novellas available. Her other novel, Bitter Fruits, was available shortly, but is now in the contract phase with a major publisher. When Sarah isn’t writing, she tends to waste a lot of time checking Facebook for pictures of cats, shooting virtual zombies, and simply staring out the window.
