Her dynamic with him felt too high school, which makes it worse knowing they have a pre-teen daughter they’re raising together and are adults now - they’re 30! Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls – nothing is there for her except memories of a lonely childhood. Okay, I’ll give you that Wuthering Heights is the least romantic book in the history of Victorian romances, but Jane Eyre? Instinctively, Claire's hands went to Delilah's waist, fingers curling through the cotton of her shirt. The finger on Delilah’s chin slid to her jaw, then Claire’s whole hand skated across her face, to her neck, and around to her nape.

The story was so fun, and sexy and full of romcom absurdity but it was also a really kind and heartfelt narrative full of nuanced characters and I loved it so much. Thankfully, the audiobook narrator was fantastic and I gradually was drawn in enough to give the story a solid chance. Wonderfully real characters--this is a book that isn't afraid to have its characters be messy, sometimes self-centred, with real and thus often difficult, misplaced, and highly unflattering emotions. Her life now is in New York, with her photography career finally gaining steam and her bed never empty.having read middle grade books by this author, it gave off the same energy where she was over-explaining everything to the reader. It wasn't necessarily the deepest, most nuanced and realistic romance, but that's not what I require from a cute contemporary romance. Blake's well-crafted adult debut Delilah Green Doesn't Care combines everything you could want in a sapphic romance--snark, steam and sweetness--with an intricate exploration of what it means to love someone and how we choose to show it, all spearheaded by its unforgettable protagonist Delilah who you'll simultaneously want to be and be with forever.

It meant that both narrators would experience a scene entirely differently so it was really fun switching between POV’s.

Long seconds that made Delilah wonder if she was still there, but she wasn't going to be the one to crack. A swoon-worthy, laugh-out-loud romp of a romance, this rom-com deserves to be amongst romantic titans like You’ve Got Mail, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sleepless in Seattle.I could keep going with all the issues I had, but I think my point has been made - this felt very mediocre to me, the characters read as way too immature and bratty for their ages, and it felt like there was no, or definitely not enough emotional or character depth. The only difference being, Astrid came back, prepared for college at Berkeley like the dutiful daughter, while Delilah flew to New York and rented a one-bedroom dump on the Lower East Side. Delilah stepped into her space, arms on either side of Claire's hips, braced against the counter and hemming her in. The last time was five years ago, when Delilah fled New York with a freshly obliterated heart, mistakenly thinking the familiarity of Bright Falls might serve as a balm. And we see later on through Delilah that really, Claire never even bullied her, never did anything to her, so you can’t even think it’s ok because Claire was so awful to her.

That’s A LOT of trauma and emotion, none of which is explored with any sense of meaning and purpose. A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—from the author of Astrid Parker Doesn't Fail . Every single piece of information in this book is well-rounded and serves a purpose in getting us to know the characters and their struggles and how they came to be the way they are. Unrelated, but also Delilah and Claire have sex for the first time while using a Literary Witches Oracle tarot deck, which once upon a time an ex boyfriend gave me, so that was a weird and unpleasant commonality for the three of us to have. Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls - nothing is there for her but memories of a lonely childhood.The sister’s confrontation and reconciliation moments with Delilah and Astrid lacked emotional punch and true, deep self-reflection. Her family is back in Oregon but she doesn’t go often because she doesn’t have a great relationship with them. I've been on a bit of a contemporary romance binge since I got a kindle a couple months ago so this book fit in absolutely perfectly! They had this great mix of sweetness and heat that was exactly what you want to see in a good romance.
