Lily of the Valley Blog Tour Stop, Review, and Giveaway

Lilly of the Valley
By: Sarah Daltry
Release Date: Sept. 25, 2013


You met them in Forget Me Not. Now, hear Jack’s 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 rethinks 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?


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 she’s ready. I haven’t 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.”
She’s breathing in short, quick gasps and I know she’s nearly there, but I also know she’s 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 I’m 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.
“Don’t 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 she’s looking for the toy again, but she can’t say anything because her clit is swollen under my thumb and she’s too excited. I am so fucking hard it hurts, but I don’t 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. It’s 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. 


Sarah Daltry writes erotica and romance that ranges from sweet to steamy. She moves around a lot and has trouble committing to things. Lily of the Valley is her third full length novel, although she also has several story collections and two novellas available. Her other novels are Forget Me Not, the story that tells Lily’s version of events, and Bitter Fruits, which will be released by Escape Publishing in December. 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.

Interview with Sarah:

·         What inspired you to write your book?

I had written a short story about Derek and 
Lily and their first time called “Her Brother’s 
Best Friend.” It was just supposed to be a 
short erotic story. But it sold well, so I 
thought about writing more about the two of 
them. However, as I started writing Forget 
Me Not, the story would not work for me. 
Until I found Jack. And then the novel was 
over and there was just so much more to his 
story, so Lily of the Valley was born.

·         How did you come up with the title?

Forget Me Not and Lily of the Valley are both 
flowers, a nd the series is called Flowering
The reason is that it is about love, sexuality, 
and growing up – sort of blossoming into the 
person you will be. Forget Me Not also 
addresses the idea of leaving your life behind 
and moving on. And Lily is the main female 
character, so hence Lily of the Valley

·         Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

People are complicated, as are relationships. 
The things we think we want sometimes turn 
out not to be what we want. In addition, the 
people we think we understand may surprise 
us. We can’t assume anything about love or 
each other. They are too complex.

·         What books have most influenced your life most?

The Catcher in the Rye, because it was the 
first time I understood that other people felt 
like me and it also said it was okay to be 
different. And The Sun Also Rises, because 
there can be beauty in suffering. 

·         If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Hemingway. I know he’s dead, but he knew 
how to write true.

·         What are your current projects?

I am writing Scandal, a contemporary 
romance about a teacher and an actor who 
find each other after they are both ruined by rumors, and I am waiting to release 
Bitter Fruits, a New Adult paranormal/urban 
fantasy romance in December through the 
publisher. I am also working on Immortal Star
the second book in that series. 

·         What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Jack’s experiences and emotions are really 
closely tied to my own and it was hard to 
write some of his scenes.

·         If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

Aubrey Plaza. She has the same type of biting 
sarcasm that I do.

·         If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with the time?

Travel the world and write.

·         What kind of people do you dislike?

Anyone who is cruel to other people or 
creatures.   People who assume their own 
reality is the only reality. And people who 
don’t read.

Shannon's Review:

This book is from the point of view of Jack from 
Forget Me Not. I loved Jack in the first book but totally fell deeply in love with him throughout Lily of the Valley.

Fell in love sigh

This book starts from the same point as Forget Me Not. I love when books are done this way. I got taken back into the love story, the darkness, and fears of Jack and Lily.

Jack definitely has some issues, deep dark issues. 
You get to see him make an ass of himself and also get to see him grow into a man. He uses alcohol and monotonous sex to become numb to his life. In this book you will see what went on when he was during the times he wasn’t with Lily. And you also get a few more secrets that he has hidden.

This book is not for the faint of heart and like the 
synopsis says it’s not a coming of age book. It is a great love story of a disturbed and hurt young man who meets a girl who he may be able to love. I am giving this book 4 hearts and recommend you go and pick it up to read.
