Forget Me Not | Review

4 Stars

Book Blurb:
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?

Book Review:
You know, I really liked this book. It was a nice, easy, entertaining read, that had just enough angst and torture to make it worth 4 stars.
Forget Me Not truly is a coming-of-age book that I can see a lot of first year college students going through. You start college with your high school boyfriend, only to experience college and what it is about. It is a time for experimenting, growing as an person and trying to find yourself. Often times that leads you to a different person because you are a different person now.
With the underlying rhythm of coming of age, there is the brazenly hot sex. Whoa Momma, this is experimenting, ride-me-hard sex. It is kinky hot sex that when you read it you will need to change your panties. I love how Lily embraces her sexuality and runs with it. It is refreshing to read about a women who isn't afraid to think of herself as a whore.
For whatever reason, I can't put my finger on why I liked this book so much. It is similar to other New Adult books out there, there wasn't huge plot twists, but it had a nice cadence to it that kept me interested and panting the whole way through it.
