Blog Tour: Lily of the Valley by Sarah Daltry - Review and Giveaway

You met them in Forget Me Not. Now, hear Jacks 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 rethink 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?
Review by Janeane - ARC received from author for honest review

If you have not read Forget Me Not - never fear.  Lily of the Valley runs parallel, but from Jack's POV.

Jack has never felt wanted, needed or loved.  Leaving the small town where everyone knows him and his past (mother dead, father in gaol), he works his butt off at school and the rest of the time at a local diner.

Then he meets Lily.  He immediately pigeon holes her with all the other girls around school.  Just another princess there on her daddy's money.  He is ready to love her and leave her.

But there is something about her that draws him in, and he needs to know more about her.

Jack comes from a place of darkness.  Lily is the light he is drawn to. Their relationship moves at warp speed, and is hot as hell!

I slip the vibrator inside of her, holding her open to take the toy in, and my cock twitches at the wet heat of her pussy. Jesus, I want her, but the way she groans and the way her eyelids flitter make holding out worth it. I love being in this position, this force that gives her exactly what she craves, without needing her to focus any of her energy on me. She can just give herself over to the sensations with no worries at all, and she is eager to do that now. She grows wetter and I slide the toy in and out a few times to ensure that shes ready. I havent turned on the vibrations yet, and I want to tease her a little. 

How does that feel? I ask. 

Mmmm, she says, which I take as a good sign. 

I push it in a little bit deeper and then I flip the switch to the lowest setting. Lily gasps and holds the sharp intake of breath.

Your pussy is beautiful, princess.

She groans and I watch her writhe against the toy. I meet her movements with it and she balls up the sheet in her fists. Oh, God, she groans.

Increasing the speed of the vibrations, I push the toy deeper within her and she cries out, before immediately biting her lip. 

Go ahead and scream, I tell her. I love watching you come.

Shes breathing in short, quick gasps and I know shes nearly there, but I also know shes holding back. Lily is still, somewhere in her mind, the good girl and she clearly worries about what other people will think. Not enough to turn down what Im doing, but enough to make her orgasm lesser than I want it to be, so I slip the toy even deeper and tell her to hold her thighs together. I get up, turning on the radio loud - and I return to the bed.

Dont worry now. No one can hear you. You can enjoy yourself, Lily.

At the sound of her name, she jerks her hips up and the vibrator slips out of her. I push her legs apart and rub her clit for a few minutes. She opens one eye and I know shes looking for the toy again, but she cant say anything because her clit is swollen under my thumb and shes too excited. I am so fucking hard it hurts, but I dont move to undress or do anything but help Lily let go entirely. 

More, she cries.

More what? I tease.

More, she repeats and she turns her legs to the side toward me. I push them back and kneel between them, sliding the vibrator back inside of her. I push it as far as it can go this time. Its still buzzing on its medium setting and Lily begins thrusting her hips up and down. I hold onto her thighs and watch her. Her tits rise and fall with her quick breathing and her face twists in absolute ecstasy. I lean over and kiss her, at which point she nearly bucks me right off the damn bed.

 I loved that we learned more about Jack's relationship with Alana, his best friend.  She is the one he calls when his head is in a bad space.  But it was worrying how quick she would be to follow him to that bad place.

Their relationship is very complicated, and they bring out both the best and worst in each other, ripping each others hearts out before putting them back in place.  I have to say that I shed a couple of tears with some of their confrontations.

And then there is their friend Dave.  I am hoping we get a book about Alana and Dave in the future!

Jack and Lily's relationship had some ups and downs, and do they get their HEA?  For that you will have to read for yourself.

I gotta say that Jack, I would not kick you out of bed for leaving crumbs!  A night with his toy box - who wouldn't want that!!
