REVIEW: Forget Me Not (Flowering #1) by Sarah Daltry

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."

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

With that said, I will say, at the beginning I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book… The sex scenes between Lily and Derek seemed very wham-bam-thank you-ma’am DONE to me… and sort of rushed… (Now don’t get me wrong, I remember what it is like to be a 18-19yr old and be all hot and bothered all the time and having a boyfriend that is in the mood all the time making it difficult to resist and all, but I wished Sarah would have taken a bit more time with those first few scenes..) However, when Lily runs into Jack, their love is entirely different… Now, I don’t condone cheating, but Lily seemed like this was something she needed and especially with Derek being her first…everything… Lily needed some variety anyhow… There were very few editing issues with this book, minor teensey little things here and there, but nothing huge or majorly noticeable taking away from the story. I loved getting to know Lily and seeing her romance bud with Jack, and Also was very happy that the sex scenes in the book were more developed throughout the book as you read along, so I am thinking maybe it was important that Lily and Derek had “quickies” at the beginning…? I don’t know, but I did fall in love with these characters and had a lot of fun meeting Jack (*Swoons*) and seeing Lily grow and develop.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 shields!!
