Product Description

DISCOVERING DELILAH is an New Adult Lesbian Romance (#LGBT)

After the death of her parents on the day of her college graduation, Delilah Armstrong thought she could finally follow her heart and come out to her closest friends, but the guilt of going against her parents’ beliefs haunts her. The feelings she has for her best friend, Ashley, are stronger than anything she’s felt before, but Delilah has never even kissed a girl, and fear stops her at every turn.

Ashley Carver promised herself that she would never again date another girl who wasn’t out, but that was before she met intoxicatingly sweet and sexy Delilah.

When another girl offers to teach Delilah the ropes, it changes Delilah’s whole world and gives her the courage to go after the only girl she really wants. But coming out isn’t as easy as Delilah imagined, and moving past her parents’ death and the feelings of guilt she is left with is even harder. The intense passion between Ashley and Delilah is too strong to deny, but coming together means risking everything.

Discovering Delilah is an edgy, evocative, romantic story of friendship, family, and the courage to love.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a good story of two young adults coming together. Delilah is in the closest and getting over the death of her parents while Ashley is out and is getting over a bad relationship. While they want to be together they both have baggage that causes problems.

The story explores her parents apparent disapproval of the fact that she is a lesbian and why they might have thought that way. I thought this was well done and I like the way the story dealt with Delilah's guilt over her parents death and her sexualality.

Discovering Delilah is a lovely f/f romance. I really felt the connection between Ash and Dee as both friends and lovers. The scenes where they come together physically melted more than my heart. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

I love this series and am so happy it just keeps going. This story deals a lot with guilt and grief and how when losing your parents when you are young can alter your perception of yourself and make you question who your parents were and why they thought the way they did. Personally having lost a parent at a young age I found I needed the tissues handy near the end. Also can't wait for the day the everybody believes that loving someone of the same sex is not wrong.

HASH(0xaef24210) out of 5 stars society is starting to accept that love comes in different varieties 2 June 2015
By mengel2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Over the years, the definition of ‘relationship’ has evolved. With more interracial, same-sex and mixed faith relationships, society is starting to accept that love comes in different varieties. But, for Delilah, growing up in an extremely conservative home with parents who weren’t shy about expressing their distaste over same sex relationships, she was forced to conceal her sexuality. In the past, she had even dated guys to rule out her attraction to them and keep her family and friends from finding out her secret.

Months after her parents’ untimely death, Delilah is still haunted by the beliefs her parents tried instilling on her and her brother, Wyatt. But living in Harborside, where there is a high gay population, makes her wonder why her parents chose there of all places to live and start a business.

As Delilah continues to conceal her sexuality, her feelings for her friend, Ashley, grows. She’s never had a ‘girlfriend’ nor has she had any intimate contact with a girl. Unsure of how to proceed, and even more unsure if Ashley is even into girls, Delilah is more confused than even. But one night, after her feelings for Ashley become so strong that she feels as if she might explode, she gets the courage to tell Ashley how she feels. She was surprised to learn that Ashley reciprocates her feelings.

Being in a first time relationship with a girl, Delilah is still not willing to fully disclose her sexuality. This not only takes a toll on her, but also puts a strain on her new relationship. But will Delilah be able to break the ties that her parents had on her before she loses the love of her life? Or will her insecurities and past be too much for her to release?

It still surprises me that, in this day and age, so many people still have prejudices over nonconventional relationships. It’s hard enough to find love, but who are we to judge in what form it comes in? In Discovering Delilah, Melissa Foster does a great job addressing the (still) sensitive subject of same sex relationships and the stereotypes, prejudices and sometimes even consequences of being in one. But this book doesn’t only focus on that one topic. You will also see the beauty of friendship, the love of family and one’s metamorphosis from confusion and pain to self-discovery and acceptance.

No matter if you are heterosexual, homosexual or asexual, this is a must read for everybody!

HASH(0xaef24714) out of 5 stars Amazing Journey of Acceptance and Love! 7 June 2015
By vintage heart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In Book One of the Harborside Nights series, we met Wyatt Armstrong and his twin sister, Delilah. Newly graduated from college, the two are dealing with much more than your average college graduate. After their parents die unexpectedly, they’re both struggling with loss, grief and their own personal issues.

In this novel, Book Two, we get to know Delilah. Growing up, Delilah always knew that she wasn’t cut from the same mold as her conservative parents, and struggled for understanding and clarity as she got older. Keeping her own sexuality a secret all these years has taken its toll on her emotionally. Finally ready to reveal the truth, she continues to struggle with the same old feelings of guilt and disappointing her parents.

Coming back to Harborside, and her family’s beach house for the summer, Delilah meets a special friend in Ashley. Their friendship is fun and easy, but as Delilah’s attraction for her grows, she struggles with how to let Ashley know her feelings, besides finding out if those feelings would be reciprocated.

I found myself not wanting to put this book down! I love how Melissa captures Delilah’s rocky and rewarding journey to love, navigating her way through the mind field of ingrained social mores, and discovering her new sexual identity through experimentation and emotional trials.

Excellently written, this story of love breaks through old barriers of society leading to true acceptance of oneself, respecting individual choices without judgment.

I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xaef24b58) out of 5 stars OMG! I love this book!! 3 June 2015
By Ali Davies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was so excited to read Delilah's story, I fell in love with her in Catching Cassidy.
It's hard enough for people to come out and admit they are gay, thanks to society... But when your parents drill it into you that it is wrong, how can you tell them the truth??
I wanted to hug Delilah and tell her everything will be ok..
How do you carry on living with this secret and pretend to be someone that you're not??
After a tragic accident that took her parents lives... Delilah can't get the look of disgust on her parents faces out of her head, after telling them she's gay...
This is her journey to find herself, after so long keeping the real her hidden.. Delilah's twin brother and close friends are there to support her.. But this is one thing she needs to work out for herself..
Melissa has written this beautifully, as I knew she would... My heart broke for Delilah....I felt everything she went through, this is such an emotional journey...
I will warn you to stock up on tissues, this is a definite ugly cry... But it's worth every tear..
Melissa has written this beautifully, as I knew she would...
I was given this ARC by the author for an honest review!!!

HASH(0xaef24a20) out of 5 stars Delilah's beautiful journey!! 3 June 2015
By Ann J. (love to read) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Loved this book!!!! I was so excited to read Delilah's story. I fell in love with her in Catching Cassidy and couldn’t wait to see what was in store for her. In today’s society it isn’t as hard to “come out” and say you are gay but in this book when your parents drill it into your head that it is wrong, how would it be possible to tell others that you’re a lesbian/gay? Her family and close friends accept her. But how do you continue to live with this secret and then fall in love but are too scared to let the world know. You are too scared or don’t want to see the reaction of the people around you. After her parents accident/death Delilah tries hard to come to grips before it destroys her and her new relationship with Ashley. This is her journey to find herself, after so long keeping the real her hidden. My heart broke for Delilah. This is such an emotional rollercoaster ride but I enjoyed every minute of it!! I was given this ARC by the author for an honest review!!! LOVED IT!!!!
Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!!
Happy reading!!

HASH(0xaef24438) out of 5 stars Amazing read and so much heart into it 5 June 2015
By Mary Forster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
ARC given in exchange for an honest review

I really enjoyed reading this book. This is book 2 in the series - I would say if you haven't read book one then you may want to read that first just so you can understand more of what happened and where the characters come from. This book has many emotions in it and if you are not a fan of FF reads then this book isn't for you. Overall the book is great and so worth the read.

Delilah has a long way to go, after receiving tragic news she must find her way. She has support from her brother, Ashley and other friends. She has a big secret and she hasn't told anyone. She must learn how to let go and live. She also wants someone but doesn't know if the person feels the same way. Such a heartfelt story and you watch a love form between two people.

Great job to the author, I really liked this book and looking forward to more in the series.
