HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real New Adult Romance series that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.
DISCOVERING DELILAH is an #LGBT New Adult Romance
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.
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**
“Melissa Foster does a great job addressing the (still) sensitive subject of same sex relationships and the stereotypes, prejudices and sometimes even consequences of being in one. But this book doesn’t only focus on that one topic. You will also see the beauty of friendship, the love of family and one’s metamorphosis from confusion and pain to self-discovery and acceptance.
No matter if you are heterosexual, homosexual or asexual, this is a must read for everybody!”

Relationships are not the same anymore. There are all sorts whether they be of the same sex, mixed views or even mixed races. I am so proud that I got to read this novel right after the passing of same-sex marriage. Delilah comes from a VERY conservative home and her parents have no problem in putting down same-sex relationships. So, of course, Delilah has always dated the opposite sex, but it’s just not who she loves or is attracted to at all. I’m going to be a bit honest here and say I think that the majority of women have had a same-sex encounter in one way or another growing up. Testing out the waters and kissing your best friend, for instance. Doesn’t have to mean anything, but for Delilah it does.
Delilah’s parents pass and she still wonders about the belief that same-sex relationships just are not right. Harborside is not shy of having a gay community. She starts to really dig into herself and wonders why her family even chose there is a place to live when that belief was so out in the open for her and her brother, Wyatt, to see. She continues to not let her true feelings out but becomes attracted more and more to Ashley. She was so shocked after coming out to Ashley that she felt the same exact way. It’s hard to know what to do with her feelings and how to come out with them when there are so many people there to judge her if she does. This book touches on a very serious subject in the world today and does it with grace. This is a must-read no matter what you may believe,
