Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake
Series: Bright Falls #1
Release Date: February 22, 2022
A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—by debut author Ashley Herring Blake.
Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls—nothing is there for her but memories of a lonely childhood where she was little more than a burden to her cold and distant stepfamily. Her life is in New York, with her photography career finally gaining steam and her bed never empty. Sure, it’s a different woman every night, but that’s just fine with her.
When Delilah’s estranged stepsister, Astrid, pressures her into photographing her wedding with a guilt trip and a five-figure check, Delilah finds herself back in the godforsaken town that she used to call home. She plans to breeze in and out, but then she sees Claire Sutherland, one of Astrid’s stuck-up besties, and decides that maybe there’s some fun (and a little retribution) to be had in Bright Falls, after all.
Having raised her eleven-year-old daughter mostly on her own while dealing with her unreliable ex and running a bookstore, Claire Sutherland depends upon a life without surprises. And Delilah Green is an unwelcome surprise…at first. 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. When they’re forced together during a gauntlet of wedding preparations—including a plot to save Astrid from her horrible fiancé—Claire isn’t sure she has the strength to resist Delilah’s charms. Even worse, she’s starting to think she doesn’t want to…
Absolutely in love with Delilah Green Doesn’t Care! It has everything I’ve ever wanted! Perfection!! I loved Delilah and Claire together. Their chemistry is smoking hot, from the minute they appear on page.
✔Best friend’s sister
✔Queer friend group
✔A romance to die for
Oh the way Delilah broke my heart because I could relate so much to her. The lonely girl who used to be on the sidelines, looking in? That’s me. Delilah is also someone I aspire to be. (Yes, I want to be WITH Delilah too, sue me lol) And have you seen those tattoos??!!
I also love how each character has their distinct quirks and traits that make them stand out. I loved every single character, except for two, which if you know, YOU KNOW. The friendship between Claire, Astrid and Iris is so heartwarming.
Ruby, Claire’s daughter was another great character. I just love Astrid so so much and words cannot express how excited I’m for her book!!!!! Highly recommend this if you’re looking for a fun and sexy sapphic romance!
