Description

Iris thinks Delilah is weird and has since childhood, when in fact Iris is a bully and it's weird we are supposed to like her, when she tortured Delilah as an adolescent and still talks to her in the exact same way and generally does not appear to have changed very much. 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. 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. So more than Delilah and Claire, it was the story of Delilah and Astrid that I found the most compelling and well crafted, and how we sometimes need somebody to help us bridge our differences to make not only our love life but our family life happier. Anyway, this is a book I would absolutely recommend to any romance fans and I’m hopeful that people will enjoy it as much as I did.

Also, although I understand that there is going to be backstory to Claire's divorce and co-parenting, the drama with Josh was just so irritating. Everyone was just on pointe and you feel completely transported into this small town among this interesting group of characters. Or there’s a throwaway line that I personally found so well-observed, which is when Delilah (who is not attracted to men) is at a bar, and the (male) bartender keeps hitting on her, and she’s irate that she’s probably going to have to come out to this random stranger to make him leave her alone - that sense of coming out as a permanent state imposed upon you resonated with me so hard.Delilah Green is pulled from her life as an up-and-coming photographer in New York City to the small town where she grew up to work as the photographer for her step-sister Astrid's wedding. I loved the small-town feel, and especially the way in which Blake wrote it so that there was no homophobia. i almost DNFed this at page 250 but decided to stick it through, and i'm really sad this didn't live up to the hype for me.

This is a cute rom-com type story for the LGBTQ set, with two heroines that will entertain and readers will want to see end up happily ever after.

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. And, now I come to think of it, there’s the fact an entire subplot concerns Astrid (Delilah’s sister and Claire’s best friend) and her impending marriage to a dreadful cishet guy. anger, mainly, frustration and sadness, maybe a little happiness too but that was really buried under.

While it may seem like this is too much conflict, it created dynamic and well developed main characters and side characters. The plot brings us second chances, self development, new beginnings, healing, chemistry, steam and dreamy romance, told between dual perspectives from Delilah and Claire, both of whom I adored.This review is rambling and makes absolutely no sense but please just take my word for it that this was an absolute delight and you neeeeeed! I found that it actually gave me butterflies in my stomach and it’s been a long time since a book did that. She'd rubbed elbows with a few agents at the Fitz show and sold one whole piece-granted the patron was currently sleeping in the next room, but Loretta one hundred percent forked over her money before even batting a single lash Delilah's way.

One of the friends is named Iris and this is so dumb but they shorten her name to Ris and that bothered me. Both grew up in some sense of isolation and with a mother/step mother that is frankly an insane stepford wife wannabe. That’s A LOT of trauma and emotion, none of which is explored with any sense of meaning and purpose.I found this novel to have an excellent balance of romance and other plot elements, both of which I was really invested in. 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.
