I Am Delilah Review



Although Delilah works in New York, she’s a small-town girl and eager to finish her job as a nanny and return to Big Fork Montana where she’ll marry her high-school sweetheart. When she ends up the focus of a Hollywood stunt centered around her being the Oscar date of Hollywood heartthrob Sam Hendricks, life as she knows it becomes a thing of the past. Delilah promptly refuses him, only to find that it isn’t so easy to step out of the limelight once you’ve ended up in the middle of the public eye. 

Sam Hendricks is not used to taking no for an answer, and when his rejection become a leading story, he determines to do whatever it takes to turn the tide of public opinion back in his favor. Again and again Delilah refuses him until she proposes an offer—if he’ll spend two weeks on her family’s dairy farm, she’ll be his date to the Oscars. In no way is this a fair trade, but Sam feels he has no choice and therefore agrees to her proposal—they both agree no one will ever know. 

Unfortunately for them both, there are plans other than their own at play, and when everything goes wrong they are faced with another fallout, bigger than the first. 

(I AM DELILAH was originally published as STAR STRUCK in 2004)


I really enjoyed this book, the concept was great and the ending was fantastic.  I feel like I can't tell you why I loved it as much as I did without ruining it for you though.  Let's just say it's pleasantly surprising where Kilpack takes the story and Delilah is a fantastic strong character that teaches a wonderful lesson in the book.   

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I started reading this book by chance and the truth is that I really loved it. From the first chapter it hooked me. Although I’m not an English speaker I like to read in English and I found it easy to read and, what’s more, funny. It’s one of those books that makes you keep reading it without being able to stop because you want to know what’s going to happen.
    About the characters, Sam is my favourite. I have to be sincere, I liked him from the very beginning, even though it was described as a moron self-centered 23-old guy. Sam is an enjoyable and at the same tame complex character that evolves within the plot, without loosing his Hollywood Star essence.
