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.

My Review:

Intro:   Melissa Foster is a favorite author of mine. Her books are consistently excellent and Discovering Delilah is no different. I loved it to bits and pieces.


Heroine: Delilah- I really loved Delilah. I really identified with her and found her so likable. I loved her journey towards acceptance of herself. She really grew throughout the book and I found that really amazing to watch.

Heroine: Ashley-I loved Ashley as well. She was just such a strong and confident character. In many ways, I identified more with Ashley than I did with Delilah. She just had such a strong personality and I absolutely loved her.

Chemistry: Delilah and Ashley were so perfect together. I mean, all of Melissa Foster’s characters tend to be pretty amazing but Ashley and Delilah had something so special. Delilah was just coming to terms with her sexuality and Ashley was burned by a previous relationship where her partner was not out yet and treated her pretty terribly.  

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: Melissa Foster can never let me down. I am waiting for her to write something that I don’t like. I have a feeling I am going to be waiting a long time. I loved this one. Delilah and Ashley were amazing heroines and I loved them both. They had amazing chemistry and I really loved their story.
