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.

Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this tour. As I’m sure you know I really enjoy Melissa’s books and I was extremely excited about her new series Harborside. I adored Catching Cassidy but I was nervous about reading Discovering Delilah.

I had never read a romance book that was not based on a hetrosexual relationship. Not because I have an issue with same sex relationships but because being hetrosexual I like the girl meets guy falls in love it goes wrong and they live happily ever after scenario it always gave me hope that somewhere out there I would find my forever man. So like I said I was nervous and I didn’t know what to expect from this book.

I however, loved it. I loved the alternating POV as Melissa changed from Delilah to Ashley. They are both at different stages with their sexuality and both have had very different life experiences. It was interesting to see how this has affected them and their view of the world.

Being heterosexual there are so many things that you take for granted. You don’t think about having to tell your parents your sexual preferences. Having to worry about if people will look at you differently or treat you differently because of it. I really appreciated all the hardships that Delilah had to overcome to just feel comfortable being herself around other people. Melissa really captures this in her writing.

I love the fresh, edgy vibe of the Harborside series and I can’t wait to read the rest of them.
