About this deal

Although I know many like romance books to have a 'plot', I didn't really enjoy all the wedding shenanigans and something about photography is really boring to me 🤷‍♀️. Contemporary romances are what I reach for most when I'm in a major reading slump or I'm feeling a bit down and I want to read something that's guaranteed to have a happy ending. I'm all for creative hobbies but, I can't lie, I don't really care about characters whose true passion is that 🙊. They'd only spoken on the phone a dozen or so times since Delilah left Bright Falls the day after high school graduation, hopping a bus to Seattle with her Bright Falls High duffel bag on her shoulder, while Astrid took off for a postgrad trip to France with all of her horrible BFFs.

Because ultimately this is a story that is far more interested in how we show love to each other, than taking revenge on those who have hurt us, and I absolutely adore it for that. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Delilah was such a quirky, bold and outgoing character, but she had a vulnerable side for sure and my heart utterly broke for her upbringing and the effect it had on her. Her family is back in Oregon but she doesn’t go often because she doesn’t have a great relationship with them. I was also happy to see that Berkley keeps putting out new sapphic books and I hope they continue since they have all been enjoyable.Honestly, if you haven't given this one a try and you enjoy small town romances and/or sapphic romances then you definitely need to give this a try. I would understand if the main character was a POC and trying to point out how she can’t relate to these people in the same way because of some sort of struggle they would never understand but she’s also white and cis so I just don’t know why she keeps bringing it up so much.

That’s A LOT of trauma and emotion, none of which is explored with any sense of meaning and purpose.Ruby herself wasn't my favourite character ever, but that then just supports my decision to not want to pop some lmaoo. Blake's impressive talent is on display on every page, especially when it comes to tracking the evolution of her central couple's relationship.

I imagine that's how Claire felt as well, but just generally, though it's part of them, I wasn't really interested in the fleshing out of the difficulties of being a co-parents to a man who is horrible, yet your child's favourite. And Claire’s irresponsible but well-meaning ex-husband gets his own little maturation arc that feels genuinely earned. Even when it's a universally beloved new release you really wanted to enjoy and instead just felt kind of meh about, like now. She was left out of many friend groups when she was younger, so she packed and moved out as soon as she could, following her passion for photography.Her life now is in New York, with her photography career finally gaining steam and her bed never empty.
