Delilah Green Doesn't Care | Ashley Herring Blake
A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting lovewith all its complicationsby debut author Ashley Herring Blake. Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Fallsnothing 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, its a different woman every night, but thats just fine with her. When Delilahs 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 Astrids stuck-up besties, and decides that maybe theres 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 surpriseat first. Though theyve known each other for years, they dont really know each otherso Claire is unsettled when Delilah figures out exactly what buttons to push. When theyre forced together during a gauntlet of wedding preparationsincluding a plot to save Astrid from her horrible fiancClaire isnt sure she has the strength to resist Delilahs charms.

This was so good! Delilah reluctantly visits her hometown to photograph her stepsister's wedding, but they have never gotten along and she is determined to annoy the bride as much as possible. Enter Claire, one of her sister's best friends, who is flirty and cute and super off limits for unattached Delilah. There is so much emotion behind these characters and family dynamics to unpack. Such a captivating story if you love all the feels 💕

4.5/5

Delilah Green's family situation is complicated, but she can't refuse the money she'll get for photographing her stepsister's wedding. But once she returns home she starts to see a different side of the people and place she escaped from.

Most of the characters in this Sapphic romance behave badly. Humor and photography kept me reading. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#delilah-green-doesnt-care

Can't believe I waited so long to read this book! It's a grumpy / sunshine romance for the win with a side of sibling feels. Delilah returns to her childhood home to photograph her estranged stepsister wedding, expecting to hate every second of it. Then she meets single mom , Claire, and suddenly this trip home gets a lot more fun. I think the best indication of how much I loved this book is that I immediately requested the sequel on Netgalley.

Loving Delilah Green Doesn‘t Care! The synopsis doesn‘t give it enough credit; it‘s funny, heartfelt, and the plot is more complex than I thought it was going to be. There‘s so many little things in motion, I can‘t read fast enough😅📖 #junetbr #currentlyreading

Hmm, I really liked aspects of this book, others not so much. Most if that characters were difficult to root for, a couple weee downright awful. The writing was solid and I loved the queer rep and photography/art bits. It was a so-so for me but I would read another of her books. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #pride

I found Delilah immature, petty, and mean and the other characters alternately flat or also mean. I don't feel any chemistry between Claire and Delilah and the dialogue and exposition are boring and repetitive. Blake's books for kids that I've read are thoughtful, nuanced, and emotional and this book is just not that. I don't see what other people see!! Ashley Herring Blake can do a lot better than this, what happened??

Friends I need help. I am 120 pages into this book and I am seriously considering DNFing. No one is more surprised or disappointed than me. I loved a couple of Blake's queer middle grade books and this book is so popular. But so far I find Delilah immature, petty, and mean and the other characters alternately flat or also mean? I don't have a good feel for the characters' chemistry and I find the dialogue and exposition boring and repetitive. ??

TracyReadsBooks Hate being disappointed by a book—especially when I‘ve liked the author‘s other books. DNFing is totally legit. You can always give the book a second chance another time. 6mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @TracyReadsBooks yeah I could always give it another try, good idea! 6mo
Prairiegirl_reading Yes to DNF. Might just be wrong time. 6mo

I'm always a bit hesitant to review romances. It's just not a genre I read much of generally. This one had its tropes but was fun to read, and there were some nice, steamy scenes. I wish more time was allotted to unpack the Astrid/Delilah story with its complexities.

I confess this book starts with one of my least favorite opening types (character is in bed with someone they can't remember the name of and pondering their life) so that may have contributed to it feeling like it took a while to get going, but these two folks who have been so burned by life just unable to not fall in love with each other was good stuff.

Delilah Green Doesn‘t Care and neither do I (for this book). This was a book club read otherwise I would have abandoned it. LGBTQ+ romance book. It gets less unbearable in the last few chapters. Main reason why I dislike the book: Every character in the book: the girl orphaned at 10 and raised by her aloof stepmother is so weird and awkward! Also every character in the book: She couldn‘t possibly have changed by age 30!

Some good steamy scenes, but the story was a bit lackluster for me.

Delilah agrees to photograph her estranged step sister‘s wedding and wedding week festivities, only to find out her sister is about to marry a man who sucks, their relationship may be more complicated than she knew oh and also, her sisters best friend is hot and single. more serious and emotional in some parts than anticipated when discussing her childhood and her love interest‘s hardships as a single parent but still loved it, 10/10

kera_11 and a sequel for the sister coming out this fall!! yay!!!! 9mo

This might be one of my favorite books this year. The humor was spot on, the douche canoe fiancé was someone you could love to hate, each character was flawed, but amazing. It was so good! And the romance was steamy, fun and awkwardly sweet.

When you pick up a romance novel you know there will be an evitable misunderstanding that leads to a temporary break up before the characters come back together. I just read that part. The break up scene. I don‘t remember ever being affected this much by one. I mean… I know the characters will get back together, but both of them are in a psychologically vulnerable place and my heart is breaking for them both.

This is a fun, smart and sexy gay romance novel, but it is more than that. It also is a story of young stepsisters who in a world of hurt distance themselves from each other. It is a story of deep friendships. single parenting and learning to say no. It is also going to have a sequel, one that I am looking forward to. Sometimes you want pure entertainment and distraction and this book accomplished that. I gave it 4/5 stars.

This was a delightful, fun, and steamy queer romance! All the characters felt like fleshed out three dimensional people and I appreciated the balance between Delilah and Claire's romance and their other interpersonal relationships/issues.

I didn't think the timeline of events was super realistic for everything that takes place but I loved everything else about the story! Including this cover, isn't it great? 😍
