Delilah Green Doesn't Care: A swoon-worthy, laugh-out-loud queer romcom
About this deal
She very nearly answered the phone like that, but then grabbed a silk robe-definitely not a college-level kind of robe-that hung over a gray upholstered chair in the corner.
Claire saw through Astrid’s hard exterior to her best friend from childhood while Delilah, who never got to know her step sister that well and had some bad experiences with her as a child, only saw that hard exterior.On the other hand-the hand that tried to keep Delilah fed and clothed-Isabel Parker-Green had offered her a ridiculous sum of money to photograph Astrid's wedding and two weeks' worth of pre-wedding events. Isabel, Astrid's mom and Delilah's wicked stepmother, had armed both girls with enough cash to keep them out of her hair for two weeks. It ruins my enjoyment of perfectly fine things, like citrus fruit or two and a half hour torture sessions superhero movies. 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. The sex scenes were well written and enjoyable, and the way the two characters described each other and thought about each other was so good.
she also was taken advantage of too many times for my liking by people like Josh (like why the fuck did he not have any retribution at all? Other than this I ADORED this book, it was super engaging and I was hooked from the first page to the last - I’m SO excited to have just been granted the second book on Netgalley which I can’t WAIT to read! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.While it may seem like this is too much conflict, it created dynamic and well developed main characters and side characters. The part where we explore Delilah’s childhood, including her relationship with her family, was what I was genuinely interested in.
Blake's well-crafted adult debut Delilah Green Doesn't Care combines everything you could want in a sapphic romance--snark, steam and sweetness--with an intricate exploration of what it means to love someone and how we choose to show it, all spearheaded by its unforgettable protagonist Delilah who you'll simultaneously want to be and be with forever. Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls - nothing is there for her except memories of a lonely childhood.One of the friends is named Iris and this is so dumb but they shorten her name to Ris and that bothered me.
A great book to pick up when you just need to take your mind off of the real world and just enjoy seeing a connection bloom. I will admit that I felt a lot of empathy for her unresolved traumas and I loved watching her bond with Ruby and play pranks on Astrid's disgusting groom-to-be, but I spent most of the book wishing I could tell her to grow up. Contemporary romances are what I reach for most when I'm in a major reading slump or I'm feeling a bit down and I want to read something that's guaranteed to have a happy ending. It meant that both narrators would experience a scene entirely differently so it was really fun switching between POV’s. 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.She pulled the phone from her ear and hit the speakerphone button, then checked the date on her calendar app-Saturday, June 2.
