Review & Giveaway: Discovering Delilah by Melissa Foster

Discovering Delilah
Harborside Nights # 2
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing July 9th, 2015
World Literary Press



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

It 's a contemporary novel very sweet, intense, with great characters and a good plot.
Delilah has always lived by lying: she couldn't admit her diversity with her parents so closed-minded and traditionalist. On her graduation day she decided to confess to her family the truth: they react badly as her daughter had expected.Unfortunately, after a few hours they die in a road accident. Delilah is plagued with guilt, she feels as if she had killed them. Living in Harborside, a community with a very open-minded and with several homosexual persons, allowing Delilah to live more serenely her homosexuality. Also her great friendship with Ashley helps her overcome the pain. Both want their friendship evolved into a deeper relationship but do not have the courage to confess their feelings, they fear of ruining their strong and valuable friendship.  One evening Delilah finally finds the courage and confesses Ashley to love her. To her amazement and delight she discovers that her feelings are reciprocated and  begins a beautiful love story, even if there are many tests and difficulty to overcome.
I heard a lot about Melissa Foster but this is her first book I read and I really plan on reading some more. The book is written very well, the author was so good at telling the discomfort and the inner struggle of Delilah. She must learn to accept hersef, only thus can she live peacefully her love story.
It's the second book in this series set in Harborside: every books is of a different genre, the protagonist of first one is the brother of Delilah and is a M / F story. All books can be read as a stand alone but read the series in sequence allow us to integrate better in this nice community.

If you do not like the stories F / F is not the book for you but it is a story really intense and engaging.
