Wow, where do I even start talking about Ashley Herring Blake’s Delilah Green Doesn’t Care.
I absolutely loved this one.
From its portrayal of the MCs’ long-held family & relationship pain to its sexiness to the litany of tropes flashing through its pages—childhood hate to love, single parent, opposites attract, best friend’s sibling, “no feelings” sex—this book had me engrossed, enchanted in every way.
Artist Delilah Green is confident & talented with so much swagger & it was a real joy watching her slowly reveal her feelings, memories, & hurts to Claire Sutherland, BFF to the stepsister Delilah loves to hate & according to Delilah, one of the people who made her feel so alone as a child.
Blake explores her vulnerabilities with grace & rawness—just like she does with Claire, who has her own family & relationship baggage.
Despite the heaviness of some of those feelings there’s also balance. The emotionality of the book is softened by blips of humor & Blake’s powerful portrayal of friendship (it’s so good!).
This romance is about second chances & taking risks with your heart. It’s also about how things aren’t always so simple—about how there are two sides to every story (maybe more)—& how being imperfect & being lovable aren’t mutually exclusive. Because I really really loved these characters.
5 ⭐️. Release date: 02/22.
