BLOG TOUR: Lily of the Valley by Sarah Daltry

Lily of the Valley (Flowering #1.5)
Published: September 26th 2013

You met them in Forget Me Not. Now, hear Jack’s story.

Plagued by a dark past, Jack sees college as a way out.
Desperate to escape the area where he grew up, the people who know his secrets, and his own family, he deals with his problems through alcohol and sex.

When he first sees Lily, she’s the epitome of everything he 
hates. Yet something about her makes Jack rethinks everything he knows and assumes about other people. Now, with the help of his best friend and lover, Jack has to decide if he wants to pursue something that he knows will only end badly.

Can Lily be one of the few people who can see Jack for who he really is – or will his darkness be too much for her to handle?

This book was gifted to me by the author through amazon for an honest review as a part of a blog tour….

Lily of the Valley is the same story as Forget me now, only it is in the perspective if Jack instead of Lily. I loved getting to go on a wander through Jack’s mind!! Learning about Jack’s family and how much of a bad boy he is and why? He comes from a dysfunctional family, dad incarcerated, watched his mom die, and all of this leading up to his deep dark past. Meeting Lily puts light into his life and even though Lily and Jack’s relationship didn’t start off great…. It comes together after a bit. The sex scenes in this book were very well written and there was more finesse in the way Sarah wrote them than there was in the first book. I was very happy watching Sarah Daltry’s writing developing as I read through Lily of the Valley after reading Forget Me Not. I feel Sarah has done a very good job and look forward to reading more of her work in the future!!

I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!!

Forget Me Not (Flowering #1)
Release Date: July 14, 2013


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?

Note: This is a work intended for readers 18+ as it features explicit sex between people in college. See where it began in the short story, "Her Brother's Best Friend."


Sarah Daltry writes erotica and romance that ranges from sweet to steamy. She moves around a lot and has trouble committing to things. Lily of the Valley is her third full length novel, although she also has several story collections and two novellas available. Her other novels are Forget Me Not, the story that tells Lily’s version of events, and Bitter Fruits, which will be released by Escape Publishing in December. 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.
