Special thanks to NetGalley, Talia Hibbert, and Avon Romance for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
As a first time reader of Talia Hibbert, I went into this romance with no expectations and came out a TOTAL FAN. Get A Life, Chloe Brown provides so much joy. I could not stop laughing or smiling throughout the entire story. The plot put a huge smile on my face for days.
After a near death experience, Chloe Brown who is chronically ill with Fibromyalgia, contemplates what her obituary would say. This promptly inspires her to write a bucket list that will force her to start living. I never laughed so hard during an epilogue. I know it sounds a bit weird laughing at a near death experience, but Talia Hibbert’s writing is pure comedic genius.
Chloe (it is really hard for me to refer to her as just Chloe / I want to call her Chloe Brown all the time) is my kind of heroine. She’s sarcastic and funny. She’s kind of a little rude but doesn’t really mean to be. She has been dealt some tough cards in her life which has forced her to build walls with everyone except her family. Chloe Brown is a strong, determined female. She is awe-inspiring.
The first chapter begins with Chloe living in her own flat where she begins to have awkward moments with the building supervisor, Redford.
Red is a total gingerish hottie who is also a bit down on life. He is a little stuck and is unsure how to get out of his rut. He almost seems OK with being stuck. Whereas Chloe is very self aware of her issues, Red is not.
Initially, Chloe and Red cannot stand each other and I am all about it. Their personal prejudices hold them back from becoming friends. To make matters “worse”, they are both equally appalled to find themselves secretly attracted to each other, leading right into a perfect enemies to lovers, slow burn set up.
I swooned hard when Chloe and Red became more. Their story is so beautiful. They both overcome so much. But the most stunning aspect is that although Chloe may have been the one trying to get a life, she gives new life to Red, too.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown is a must read. Hysterically funny. Delightful. Extremely clever. Inspiring. If Chloe Brown can get a life, so can you!
Side note: Talia Hibbert, your novel dedication is beautiful.
