Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamorous family’s mansion. The next items?
• Enjoy a drunken night out.
• Ride a motorcycle.
• Go camping.
• Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex.
• Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage.
• And... do something bad.
But it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job.
Redford ‘Red’ Morgan is a handyman with tattoos, a motorcycle, and more sex appeal than ten-thousand Hollywood heartthrobs. He’s also an artist who paints at night and hides his work in the light of day, which Chloe knows because she spies on him occasionally. Just the teeniest, tiniest bit.
But when she enlists Red in her mission to rebel, she learns things about him that no spy session could teach her. Like why he clearly resents Chloe’s wealthy background. And why he never shows his art to anyone. And what really lies beneath his rough exterior… - via GoodReads
I have a well documented phobia of approaching books that receive a lot of hype while they are actively receiving the hype. It’s probably why I waited so long to read Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert. I’d been struggling to read due to (good) recent life changes and I knew that I needed a well loved book to pull me out of my funk. I was not disappointed.
One of the first things that I noticed about Get a Life, Chloe Brown is that it is funny. I love a good contemporary romance that can make me laugh. The very first page made me laugh as Chloe introduces her suspicions about Tuesdays which I have frequently referred to as the work week’s bitch. Nothing is special about Tuesdays. Ever.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. What I got was a great book with humor, some spicy romance, and scenes that made me tear up. I was never bored which recently has been a feat. I wasn’t even finished reading Chloe’s story when I was looking up the next book in the series to see what it was about.
Red and Chloe’s story was sweet and they both have some things to work through. It was great to watch them work through them and embrace the life that they want. I loved Chloe and I’m really hoping we get to see glimpses of both Red and Chloe in her sisters’ books.
There is a high probability that there will be another Talia Hibbert review that pops up during Summer of Love!
