Also, what Lilith had proceeded to do with her mouth was definitely not a college-level kind of skill. Other than this I ADORED this book, it was super engaging and I was hooked from the first page to the last - I’m SO excited to have just been granted the second book on Netgalley which I can’t WAIT to read! It meant that both narrators would experience a scene entirely differently so it was really fun switching between POV’s. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

It was also a great vehicle to develop Astrid and Delilah’s relationship and I loved this exploration of the complications of grief and misunderstandings and family.

Delilah Green Doesn’t Care is the dreamy, steamy, utterly satisfying answer to your craving for an outcast-and-former-mean-girl romance, with complicated step-family relationships thrown in for extra delight.

Along with the money, which Astrid almost certainly knew Delilah couldn't refuse, Astrid had also delivered an oh-so-subtly manipulative, "Mom says your father would've wanted you at my wedding. I don’t like it but it’s the way it is over here and it’s something that's kinda ingrained into our social norms. It really made the friendship between Claire, Iris and Astrid shine and I loved seeing Delilah find her place in that dynamic. 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 . There’s family drama, trauma, childhood memories, love, romance, diverse relationships between not just the main couple, but everyone in the book, that’ll have you on the edge of your seat.The book is full of little moments like this, from the profound to the trivial, that make the fictional world the characters inhabit feel familiar and real and—to me, at least—recognisably and undeniably queer. It was not perfect, there were a few tiny bumps, but there was so much good here that anything little that might have been an issue, ended up not mattering one bit. The sex scenes were well written and enjoyable, and the way the two characters described each other and thought about each other was so good. So I just started the book and I’m only 30% in and I’m just a little thrown off by how often the author mentions “white cis” people as a way to talk about privilege or something I guess but every character so far has been white and cis so it feels very trynna be woke. But I will say that I have a sense that queer romance is in a complicated place publishing-wise (EDIT: in terms of queer romance published by mainstream publishers) at the moment: it’s been comprehensively proven there’s a market for it, but I think there’s a natural conflict at the heart of this market concerning the needs of queer readers versus the expectations of the dominant cishet audience.

Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls – nothing is there for her except memories of a lonely childhood. Also, a small nitpicky thing that doesn’t really matter, but why do the chapters have to be soooo long? James, and Hazel Bly and the Deep Blue Sea (Little, Brown), and the adult romance novels Delilah Green Doesn't Care and Astrid Parker Doesn't Fail (Berkley).As for Delilah, I loved seeing how her lonely childhood led to an isolated adult life and how she struggled to break those cycles, her childhood traumas were just handled so deftly. When Delilah's estranged stepsister pressures her into photographing her wedding with a guilt trip and a large check, Delilah finds herself back in Bright Falls once more. Is that the one where the douchebag hid his wife away in the attic and then lied about it to the girl he wanted to bang who was, like, half his age? I found that it actually gave me butterflies in my stomach and it’s been a long time since a book did that.

And that was all it took for Claire to side a hand into Delilah's hair and close the last bit of distance between them. I liked this book from beginning to end and it made me care enough about the side characters that I genuinely want to read their stories.A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love - with all its complications. Ashley Herring Blake draws her characters with such beautiful, loving depth, and infinite compassion for the many ways relatives and friends can both hurt and heal each other. i'm disappointed because i really really loved how to make a wish but this one was a total let down. Although Amy and Elena had told me they struggled to get into this book, I found the beginning decently gripping and I was pretty quickly enthralled.
