Today I am honoured to bring to you a blog post and review of Lily of the Valley by the inimitable Sarah Daltry. This is the story of Jack - damaged, drunken, but so deserving of something better than he's had so far. And a lot of raunchy sex that will keep you coming back for more. It's a tale of desperation, desire and self-discovery that's written from Jack's point of view, so that you are always fully aware of the raw emotions he feels as he goes through a catharsis that is as sexually enlightening as it spiritually awakening.
Writing in the first person, Sarah takes us right into the heart of Jack's dilemmas and disturbances, making them our own, and her well written and well edited narrative is refreshing to see in this much maligned genre.
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?

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.
