A swoon-worthy, laugh-out-loud romp of a romance, this rom-com deserves to be amongst romantic titans like You've Got Mail, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Sleepless in Seattle. Friday the first was definitely a date that had been cemented in her mind for months as she prepped for the Fitz show. 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.

Both grew up in some sense of isolation and with a mother/step mother that is frankly an insane stepford wife wannabe.but i'll still definitely be reading the second book (bc i'm so intrigued about Astrid Parker and her prickly exterior and bi awakening lol and i wanna know if at least her development is done properly, cause if not that's just gonna piss me off even more). She preferred women her own age, always had, and was happy to leave behind all the fumbling and fluttering lashes she remembered from her early twenties.

The actual plot here concerns Delilah Green, a thirty-ish photographer, currently trying to make it in NYC having fled the small town where she grew up. Snarky, steamy, and swoony in equal measure, I never wanted this book to end, but there’s an easy momentum to Blake’s writing that made it impossible to put down.claire, too, had her little flaws, but i saw a lot of myself in her, especially on things concerning her bisexuality and motherhood. It hit a very personal note since I have two sisters and we were estranged, but found a way to each other regardless of how badly the adults which should have guided us emotionally failed us.

At least, Delilah was pretty sure that's how it happened, as she was too busy freaking the fuck out that someone traded actual money for something she'd created. And I think part of what’s extraordinary about Delilah Green Doesn’t Care is that the book delivers everything you’d want in a romance (it’s sexy, it’s funny, it’s heart-wrenching, it’s tender) alongside a sensibility that feels, to me, effortlessly and unabashedly queer. 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. 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.

When she's not writing or reading, she's wrangling her two young sons, falling into Pinterest holes, drinking coffee, taking walks, or trying to figure out which Orphan Black clone she likes best. 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, after all. having read middle grade books by this author, it gave off the same energy where she was over-explaining everything to the reader. I can’t remember whose review I saw but I’ve wanted to read this ever since and it was everything I love in a romance - loveable, raw characters, strong ass friendships, lots of well-written steam, and a SUPER CUTE couple. She squeezed her eyes closed tight, then opened them and stared up at the ceiling, which was covered with those glow-in-the-dark star stickers.

All of which is to say that I personally (and I am speaking purely personally here) can often find reading queer romance quite an alienating experience. The main characters were multidimensional and complex - they have plenty of flaws and sometimes you want to scream at them, but overall they felt relatable and real. I think that’s mostly due to the fact that it’s not easy to pull off a female romantic relationship. While the romance is lovely, I also appreciated the way Delilah and Astrid's relationship was given room to grow, forcing Delilah to learn that Astrid might not be the villain she's so often thought of her as.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. 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). A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love - with all its complications. Her dynamic with him felt too high school, which makes it worse knowing they have a pre-teen daughter they’re raising together and are adults now - they’re 30! It hadn't, but it had given Delilah an idea for a photo series that had changed her ambition from struggling freelance photographer who barely made rent to successful queer artist with an amazing apartment in Williamsburg.
