Tour Stop: FORGET ME NOT by Sarah Daltry ~ Excerpt/Giveaway

Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Sarah Daltry

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?

**New Adult Contemporary Romance. Due to language & sexual content, this book is recommended for readers 17 & older**

In some ways, Derek was right; I am so busy that I don’t have much time to worry about anything other than getting to class and getting the work done. Oh, and finding my way around. However, in other ways, I am so homesick it hurts. Kristen and her friends have been great, helping me out, inviting me to meals, and just being overall perky and welcoming. Still, they aren’t Abby or Jon and they certainly aren’t Derek. So, when Friday comes and Derek texts that he is on his way to campus, I am ready to jump out of my skin. It is not even a sexual thing. Yes, I cannot wait to be with him, but my first thoughts are about having someone to talk to, someone to whom I can confess my sadness. Traffic is apparently bad, though, because it takes him three hours to make the trip and, by the time he gets there, I am in a mood.
“What the hell?” I snap.
“What do you mean, ‘what the hell?’”
“It took you three hours!”
“There was a huge accident. Check online,” Derek replies.
“I don’t want to check. I can’t believe you took so long.” I am being whiny and unbearable, but I missed him so much.
“Lily, stop it. I’m here,” he says and holds me. I fall into him and the week and my confusion and my sadness are washed away. I seriously regret choosing a different school than him, but a part of me still insists on being independent. It’s not working, though, because I’m being the clingy and bratty girlfriend I always promised myself I wouldn’t be. I don’t know what is driving me to act like this.
“I’m hungry,” I complain, trying to change the subject but my mood is not entirely back to where it should be.
“Yeah?” He is smirking, but I shake my head.
“Not for that. Well, yeah, for that. But actual food first, okay?”
“Oh okay. Where to?”
“How about the cafeteria?” I promised to bring him by to meet everyone and, although I would prefer to keep him all to myself, I’m making an effort to belong. I also don’t want to go too far, because I want time in my room tonight with him.
“Perfect.” He kisses the tip of my nose. “Lead on, my lady.”
