About this deal

While you can argue the petty thought is normal for a young 18/19 year old, Delilah sticks by this feeling as a grown adult of 29. Delilah stepped into her space, arms on either side of Claire's hips, braced against the counter and hemming her in. I imagine that's how Claire felt as well, but just generally, though it's part of them, I wasn't really interested in the fleshing out of the difficulties of being a co-parents to a man who is horrible, yet your child's favourite. Claire has her own ghosts to deal with in the form of an unreliable ex with whom she shares a daughter who has been repeatedly let down by her dad. I loved every hilarious character, every outrageous shenanigan - and most of all, I loved Delilah Green.

I’m happy to say that yes, there is more coming and that there will be a second book starting the ice queen character. She barely had time to smirk at the way she'd spelled her stepsister's name in her contacts before she hit Ignore. A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love - with all its complications.

Having sung the praises of AHB's MG and YA titles for so many years now, nobody is more disappointed than me to say that this book was a struggle. delilah isn't an easy character to like, especially at the beginning, but i guess she had some leftover trauma and harsh feelings to process before she could become the character the author intended her to be at the end of the story. There was even a well written kid character and a well done ex character which both can be pretty rare in sapphic books. I found this novel to have an excellent balance of romance and other plot elements, both of which I was really invested in. Delilah Green Doesn't Care is a dual POV contemporary adult romance, featuring lesbian and bisexual protagonists.Though they've known each other for years, they don't really know each other - so Claire is unsettled when Delilah figures out exactly what buttons to push. Astrid thinks that Delilah is a b*tch and she has a troubled life, when in fact she herself is quite spoiled and Delilah has spent her life alone.

I was also happy to see that Berkley keeps putting out new sapphic books and I hope they continue since they have all been enjoyable. Delilah Green Doesn't Care is the dreamy, steamy, utterly satisfying answer to your craving for an outcast-and-former-mean-girl romance.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.

Even when it's a universally beloved new release you really wanted to enjoy and instead just felt kind of meh about, like now. She'd sold a piece or two, sure, but her photography was niche, as one agent had told her while declining to represent her, and niche wasn't an easy sell. And Claire’s irresponsible but well-meaning ex-husband gets his own little maturation arc that feels genuinely earned. It ruins my enjoyment of perfectly fine things, like citrus fruit or two and a half hour torture sessions superhero movies. I have said many times that I'm not a romance reader who likes when the smut carries the love story.Shit," Astrid said, her tone regretful and irritated at the same time, as though Delilah had made her forget that Isabel had been Delilah's sole guardian after her father, Isabel's second husband, had died of an aneurysm when Delilah was ten years old. the way she thought no one gave a shit about her so she started trying to stop giving a shit about the world was truly fucking heartbreaking. 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. Thankfully, the audiobook narrator was fantastic and I gradually was drawn in enough to give the story a solid chance. And when they’re forced together during the many wedding preparations, Claire isn’t sure she has the strength to resist Delilah’s charms.
