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.
As with all of Melissa’s books this story focuses on friendship, family and love, I loved Delilah in Catching Cassidy another one of Melissa’s books. This story shows how hard it is to come out that you are gay to your family and friends, but when your parents are drilling it in to you that it is wrong how would you or can you tell the the truth? I honestly don’t know how Delilah would be feeling but I wanted to give her a big hug, I feel like she had this big secret and that she was basically living a lie. I feel like this was an emotional story but so well written.
