A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—from the author of Astrid Parker Doesn't Fail. 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...

"Fans of Red White and Royal Blue, this is for you. Witty, romantic, and heartwarming, this novel is so charming and down-to-earth. The characters are all so realistically written and the plot has so much emotion and depth. Such a wonderful, wonderful read. For such a simple concept for a story, this book had me hooked until the very end. Very engaging writing style! I always love books with LGBTQ+ representation, and this. Is. IT. The perfect quick read for travel, school, or wherever. 10/10! ❤️✨"
"THEY ARE AO HOT TOGETHER "
"A rather fun, enjoyable story. I found Delilah wildly entertaining and interesting and really liked Claire and Ruby. It's definitely got a Sapphic Hallmark movie vibe, but that's not a bad thing. Though I will say I became more invested in the family drama than I did the romance. I came for the queer rep and was not disappointed."
"It was okay but not good. Def I rely not great. Wouldn't reread it and I don't even remember if I actually finished it. "
