OMG this book! 😭😭
A sapphic Cinderella story..
Delilah is forced (asked) to come back to her hometown to be the photographer for her stepsisters wedding. Just as she gets home one of her stepsisters bff’s tries to hit on her at the bar which she’s very interested in until said friend realizes she’s awkward little loaner sister.
Astrid the bride and step sister is just perfect with her perfect itinerary and perfect (on paper) groom. But she’s having her own feelings about this perfect person she’s supposed to be.
Delilah is holding onto her old feelings of abandonment and invisibility even though she’s a pretty big deal in photography or about to get a big break.
The relationships in this book were so complex and heartbreaking and just had me rooting for all sides. There were no bad guys only little girls that got used to ignoring and teasing and never knew any other way. Or old relationships that needed to evolve with communication and they were finally ready to listen.
Claire is a single mom who got pregnant at 19 and who’s daughter is now 11. She’s the most delightful sweet character. Hope this isn’t a spoiler but I adored the instant chemistry and bonding over art Delilah had with Claire’s daughter. Two misunderstood artists feeling seen is a beautiful thing.
Then there’s Iris – whew love her.
And wow the steam in this book!! 🔥🔥🔥

A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—by debut author Ashley Herring Blake.
Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls—nothing 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, it’s a different woman every night, but that’s just fine with her.
When Delilah’s 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 Astrid’s stuck-up besties, and decides that maybe there’s 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 surprise…at first. 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. When they’re forced together during a gauntlet of wedding preparations—including a plot to save Astrid from her horrible fiancé—Claire isn’t sure she has the strength to resist Delilah’s charms. Even worse, she’s starting to think she doesn’t want to…
