Publisher's Summary

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 11-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....

Critic Reviews

"Blake captures all the complications of family, friendship, and romance with humor and heart."—Kirkus

"There's family drama, trauma, childhood memories, love, romance, diverse relationships between not just the main couple, but everyone in the book, that'll have you on the edge of your seat. The novel also does a great job of inputting a queer love story in the middle of an enticing read."—USA Today

"Delilah Green Doesn’t Care is a hot, frothy romcom with a relatable heart beating at its centre. I loved every hilarious character, every outrageous shenanigan - and most of all, I loved Delilah Green. I can’t wait for the rest of the series!"Talia Hibbert, New York Times bestselling author of Act Your Age, Eve Brown

THEE. BEST.

Finally! A novel with well developed characters that doesn't rely on stupid decisions, simple misunderstandings, or a basic lack of communication to drive the plot. One of the best I've found on this site.

Better than I thought

This was exactly the kind of book I was looking for. A little corny in some areas but overall a great story! It was funny, sad, sexy and heartwarming all at the same time. Although I do wish the ending could have been better, I was somewhat satisfied with how everything turned out at the end.

Well this was just wonderful☺️

Very well written book; great characters, fluid interactions, nice chemistry. Had me really rooting for our 2 love birds to make it. I do always hate how most romance novels have to go for the final argument that splits them up only to come back together afterwards. By this point its just trite and played out. It doesnt have to be like that, itd be fine without that extra bit of "drama". I could see this one coming from a mile away 🙄. I dont feel like it detracted from the book very much, i still really enjoyed it, its just annoying how every romance author feels like they have to follow this cannon of what has to happen in order to make a good romance novel. Wish theyd color outside the lines a lil sometimes. Very good book though, jus sayin.....

One of my favorites!

I read “Delilah Green Doesn’t Care” by Ashley Herring Blake on ebook back when it was initially released and I loved it so much that I also picked up the audio version. Kristen DiMercurio’s narration was excellent. She did such a good job conveying all of the emotion in this book and her character voices were very distinct.

This story is marketed as a romcom, but it’s so much more than that.

It explores the messiness, complications, and complexities of family, friends, and relationships. The book is a very well written and emotional read - it’s sad, sweet, heartfelt, but also at times very funny.

“Delilah Green Doesn’t Care” gave me ALL of the feels. It’s now one of my favorites.

I already pre-ordered and am looking forward to the sequel, “Astrid Parker Doesn’t Fail” by Ashley Herring Blake.

Ignore the bad reviews 🤦‍♀️ they lack the ability to see things from 2 sides

First and foremost- the bad reviews are lacking perspective and the ability to put themself in the position of both sisters- more about this in the spoilers section on the last paragraph

I HATE THIS BOOK……..BUT ONLY BECAUSE THERE ISN’T A 2nd..3rd…4th…. 😂 definitely could HAPPILY read an entire Series about these characters and their world- and honestly a Pretty Little Liars Type/style Tv show would be incredible :)








Dahlia’s and Astrid’s relationship reminds me allot of Elsa and Anna from frozen. they were both desperately struggling- wanting the same thing, their sister. For those of you who haven’t lost a close family member- let me tell you- it is truly the worst thing I can think of- and that grief TEARS you into a new person, we all grieve differently- some retreat and create stories of no one wanting them due to the overwhelming sense of being alone, losing the one person closes to you- and so you shut down. I did it. You go dark. And basically become an anti social locked in your room, pushing anyone who could lead to potential hurt away aka Dahlia/Elsa. Then you have the opposite side- still grieving, fearful of losing the only family you actually have, desperately wanting to be with your with them, grieve together, find light and joy together, “do you want to build a snow man!?” But getting turned away over and over for years- truly feeling like you did something wrong, are hated, unloveable, unwanted by the person you feel you need the most- after the years you start to accept you will never be enough for that person and have to stop trying if only for your own heart- this is not me- I side more of the life experience of Dahlia , but I can see the raw emotional building of Astrid and the intense pressure cooker that was her mother drilling her into a robot. I love how the author shows how there are two completely different sides to our stories. That we each see things and live things in such a different light- even if you lived through the years side by side. How our own personal dialogues and stories we tell ourselves about our past stories, may not be experienced that way we had though for the others involved. Through out the book you get a sense of longing and just “ please- I just want my sister” from Astrid- and Towards the end you really get it the inside of that- leaving me flabbergasted at the negative reviews about everyone other then Dahlia. Gain perspective people.

Good overall story

The romance was written well but lacked that extra pizzazz. It was funny and heartfelt at times. Didn’t keep my attention at times as it got slower in pace and story.

Funny and Heart felt

this was a sweet and amazing story, more going in than just the romance and I was here for it. I love a good story when there are 2 sides or different perspectives to an event or time.

Delilah Green - Loved it!

I thoroughly enjoyed Delilah Green Doesn’t Care. The characters felt relatable and I loved the vulnerability and honesty between Delilah and Claire. Friendships are so important and I appreciate how Blake highlights these friendships and I love that these women have each other to lean on and stand with!
