Forget Me Not

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."

My 3 Star Review!!

After one awkward moment between Lily and Derek her brothers best friend, they find themselves in a long distance relationship: Derek off at college and Lily still in high school. Lily made it work though, and when it came time to pick her college she went where her grades took her. She was determined to follow her own path, and not become one of those clingy girlfriends who gave up everything to follow their boyfriend. While at school schedules clash and visits become fewer and farther in-between.

Enter Jack. Jack is the one person to take Lily away from all her problems, and make her feel things; emotionally and physically she never has before. Lily has to make some tough decisions along her journey to find herself, but with those decisions comes happiness and a sense of freedom. 

I liked this book. It was a story about growth and finding yourself. Lily was faced with decisions that a lot of 18 or 19 year olds face when leaving home for the first time. This book is not just about Lily and the problems she faces, but also about Jack and what he faces on a daily basis. Not only was Jack able to help Lily, but also Lily helped Jack fight his own battles. One thing I didn’t like in this book was how clingy Lily did eventually end up becoming, but I also understood where she was coming from. Another thing I didn’t like about this book was how abruptly the book ended, but luckily there is a second book in this series.
