Sensual Sexy Lingerie

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?

Sarah Daltry writes erotica and romance. She’s never happy staying in one place. When she isn’t writing, she’s usually looking for new and creative ways to waste time. Right now, those include shooting virtual monsters on Xbox, searching the internet for cat pictures, and watching terrible reality TV.

Excerpt

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.”

“Amsterdam” – Guster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0TQVbiWeEs

I have to admit I was a year or two out of college, I think, when this song came out, but it reminds me so much of school and it is a great break up song. Not depressing, just more accepting of the way things change. I think it captures the theme of the novel pretty well.

“Beautiful Girl” – INXS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH986VE47M8

For me, this song captures the way that Jack feels about Lily – he wants to be good enough for her, but he also knows his own story is tough to face. He wants to love her, but he doesn’t think he deserves real love.

“Bullet with Butterfly Wings” – Smashing Pumpkins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-r-V0uK4u0

Oh, this song. There are three reasons I chose this. First, at one point during a sex scene, Lily mentions that the music playing is violently angry. This is the kind of music I pictured for that scene. Secondly, Jack is in a band and this is the kind of music I imagine they play, and the lyrics would be the sort Jack would write. He definitely would see himself as a “rat in a cage.” Finally, I wrote a book about college. I went to college in the 1990’s. There was no way I wasn’t mentioning Smashing Pumpkins! Lol. J

“Somewhere Only We Know” – Keane: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oextk-If8HQ

The novel is romance and it is erotica, but it is also about letting go and moving on. This song reminds me of that moment when you know everything is falling apart, but you want to hang on and make things go back to the way they were before. Lily can’t understand what is happening and she isn’t sure she is ready for everything to end yet.

“When You Were Young” – The Killers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff0oWESdmH0

In some ways, this is self-explanatory, but I love the lyrics for this novel. Not only is the song about moving on, but it is also about saving yourself and not hoping someone else can save you.
