Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Sarah Daltry
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."
I really enjoyed this book. Jack and Lily were definitely interesting characters to get to know. This is definitely an 18 and up book.
Lily just came to college, and she is exploring this new world on her own. She feels lonely, and realizes that it is hard being apart from her family and her boyfriend Derek. She keeps running into a guy named Jack. He is everything that she never thought she would be into. He is dark and mysterious, with a little bit of a "bad boy" streak. Lily has to learn how to make new friends, and become the person she is destined to be. She hits a few bumps along the way, and definitely life is not so black and white.
Lily is definitely a girl who has just left the nest. She is never really been on her own, and this is a huge transition for her. She has the loving family background, with the good girl reputation. She's not completely innocent, but she wouldn't be considered a deviant either. She has all the insecurities a girl that is separated from her boyfriend would have.
Jack is the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He is definitely adventurous and might just be what Lily needs to break her out of her funk. She has her heart broken and she needed to feel good about herself. He was there to do that for her, and became so much more as well.
The only complaint I have is her saying I love you way too fast. I hate when characters drop the L word before they even really get to know the person. Give it a couple of months, there is no rush.
Overall, I liked the book. If you like new adult erotica books give it a try and see if you like it.

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.

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.”
