This Novella picks up right where Lily of the Valley left off.
We get to see what happens when Jack meets Lily's parents and numerous relatives - not to mention family friends, if you are aware of the series then you can guess how nervous Jack is feeling.
Sarah has written it so well, and well I had a feeling that Lily's mother would be stuck up, and at first I think, ooh she's being nice... But then she shows her true colours!
Along with Derek (the ex) crashing the party, there are enough twists and turns in the story to keep you glued to the book. I can't wait to see how Sarah develops the story in Orange Blossom, which is the next instalment in story of Lily and Jack.
I recommend you read Lily of the Valley first.
This ruins the moment of Jack feeling like he belonged. Lily's dad is accepting. Sweet man. Even her brother Jon when he is talking to Jack is accepting and willing to give him a chance but her mom. Seriously her mom is a snob. She feels the world is black or white and her pretending with Jack was terrible. She sees him as a loser that the only person right for lily is Derek. Not true. I liked Derek to this point. Now I don't uhuh.
Lily is right in telling Derek to go they need to be apart even as friends. It shows her growth and how far she has come. She is no longer the doll that everyone dresses up for their window which is what Derek saw to but a person with thoughts and feelings. Lily surprises me in this book. She stands up for Jack and even is able to deal with her mom's snobbery with a calm demeanor.
We see Jack and Lily's love go even further and Jack start to show some more healing. A beautiful holiday story that will put a smile on your face a but also show you how much people can be ignorant and hurtful.
This is it, a big step in any relationship... the meeting of ... the dreaded parents. Jack is willing to do just about anything to make Lily's parents like him. Lily knows they won't. Her parents have this thing with appearances, always forcing her to smile and act like everything is OK even when it wasn't. Jack definitely won't fit into their idea of the perfect man for her. Her parents act like everything is OK though and Jack feels like he actually belongs somewhere. Then Derek shows up....
I am a huge Jack fan, more so than Lily. He's been through so much, he has nothing, but he will do anything for Lily. His gift to her sticks in my mind. It was so sweet. It wasn't much, but to me, it showed how much he cares and how much he wants her to be happy.
If you haven't started this wonderful series, you are missing out on a wonderfully, well-written story. You need to start with Forget Me Not and Lily of the Valley. Trust me, you will not regret these purchases.
I am determined to finish the series which shows that the story is at least somewhat interesting. But, I just can't recommend it to others.
Recommended for: 18+, explicit sex
Grammar/editing: A – near perfect

In this accompanying novella, Jack has been invited to Lily’s house to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the family. The WHOLE family is there, including aunts, uncles, cousins, and family friends. When Derek shows up, the tension is unbearable. Can Lily convince him to stay?
I remember the first time I met several of the mothers. One was an Italian mamma. All she said to me was “mangia” (I’m probably spelling it wrong, but she was telling me to eat). When I met the ex-husband’s mother, I was so stressed, I got a nose bleed! Poor Jack didn't just get the mom and dad, but the whole family tree!
The story is just so freaking fantastic. In my opinion, this is a perfect holiday story. Not because everyone is perfect, and nice, and sweet. It's perfect because some are ah$$oles, and some are clueless, and some are petty, just like in real life. But they're family, so we love them. Lily and Jack continue to learn about each other and each about themselves. The sex is as urgent and steamy as only new love can be. The emotion is raw and real.
