Delilah grew up in a conservative household. One that she felt would never be accepting of her acceptance of being gay. She’s known for a while that she liked girls more than boys and so she put up the front, with a fake boyfriend and never dating much less kissing any girls. The only people that know that she is gay is her twin brother and his girlfriend Cassidy.
Finally ready to tell her parents, she lets them know on graduation night, leaving her parent speechless and leaving Delilah angry that her parents are so unacceptable to her life. Then the unthinkable happens – her parents dying in a car accident on their way home from graduation and Delilah never getting to talk to them or confront them about how their silence made her feel.
Even with her parents gone, Delilah has a hard time coming out of the closet. The only thing is she has feelings for her friend Ashley and she has no way of knowing how to even approach the relationship and asking for more.
Delilah’s story is an amazing journey of self discovery, forgiveness and learning to live for the first time.
I loved Delilah and Ashley and we get to see the whole gang in the Harborside series too. Love is love and finding that love can send you over the moon, but first and foremost you need to learn to love yourself and be happy with who you are. And this journey takes you through a rollercoaster of twists and turns. I can’t wait for more from Harborside Nights!
