Throughout the evening they seem to go through every barrier possible and everything is going perfect, until Derek shows up and makes a scene in front of the whole family. I felt so bad for Jack, I wanted to reach through the pages and punch Derek right in the face for treating both Jack and Lily like trash. Jack controls himself and does not take his anger out on Derek's face but rather punches the wood stove (which he doesn't even remember doing).
Lily on the other hand is struggling with herself as an individual. She knows who she wants to be, but her family make is very difficult to by treating her like she is a dress up doll that is supposed to act a certain way and be a certain person. Even with all of the tension Lily manages to keep her cool and tells her father and mother that Jack is the most important person to her and that she has never been so happy and felt more like the person she is meant to be.
In the end they spend a wonderful evening together and enjoy bringing in the New Year together, alone and away from the huge family that Lily has stalking around her house.
I thought that this was a perfect way to show the readers that no matter the obstacles that Jack and Lily have to face now or in the future they can overcome everything as long as they are together!
Congratulations to Sarah for doing it again! I am a devoted fan and will always read no matter what you write, because I know that you will not disappoint me!
It is New Years Eve, and Jack is about to meet Lily's family for the first time. The nerves are high on both sides, though Lily refuses to change anything if her family don't like him, but she knows that Jack needs them to. Things are made even more tense when Derek shows up, and shows a side of him that Lily doesn't remember him ever having.
I love Jack and Lily! And the series, I don't think I could possibly find anything bad to say about the series, and its not even one of the genres that I read a lot of (though I do read an increasing amount of romance now a days, it really depends on my mood, I'll be honest). What the Flowering Series as a whole always manages to do though, is to cheer me up! After reading Jack and Lily's story, you can't help but feel happy.
For anyone that hasn't read any of the Flowering series yet, the books contain scenes of a sexually explicit nature, though Star of Bethlehem was a lot less kinky than the scenes in Forget Me Not and Lily of the Valley. I don't find any of that an issue, in fact, if Lily and Jack didn't have sex I think that I would find it odd, its just not realistic for a couple their age to be celibate.
But even though there is sex, that isn't what the book is about, instead you have the sweetness of the progression of Lily and Jack's relationship, and the problems that face them, both individually and together. That really is one of the things that I love about these books, the problems and issues facing Jack and Lily are so real, and they overcome them in a real way, there are no super powers or epic adventures, instead it is just the story of two people in love.
If you haven't read any of the Flowering series yet, then I don't know why not, get yourself back to the beginning and read! And personally, I can't wait for Orange Blossom to be released so I can read it!
