Dear Delilah by Tamsyn Bester

35701298It has been said that boys and girls can never be ‘just’ friends, and until Nathan Penn barged into my life, I thought it was complete and utter nonsense. But one night changed everything, and what I thought was the defining moment in our friendship turned out to be more than either of us were ready for.

When my boss tasks me with writing the University’s new sex advice column, Dear Delilah, I make it quite clear that I’m the least qualified person for the job – my experience is limited to one sexual encounter that taught me about love and loss all at once.

So what makes me say ‘yes’?


A distraction.

Something to take my mind off Nathan.

But once I start, I find myself wanting to be the voice of the girl who’s too afraid to ask for advice, the girl who wants to own her sexuality but doesn’t know how. Sounds easy enough.cept it isn’t.’s complicated, and messy and awkward, and when Nathan offers to help, I’m caught between a rock and his hard place. Literally.’s only when my identity is threatened that I realize I might be in over my head. With all of it.

I received copy via NetGalley for honest review

I really didn’t like this as much as I wanted to. I really thought I would love it from the blurb, but I just couldn’t like it. I have read books by this author and loved them but I just couldn’t like this one.

I feel like this book was basically just a lesson in feminism wrapped in a bow called a book.

The beginning captured me, but towards the middle it fell flat. Nothing felt like it got resolved and the main characters felt as if they were just friends with benefits, not like actual two people who loved each other. I couldn’t connect to a single character. Nathan was your typical love interest who wants what he didn’t want before when it was right in front of his face. I don’t even know what to say about Savanah. She’s so forgetful. I don’t like or dislike her.

I just couldn’t get myself to like this.
