I had high expectations diving into GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN, and I happy to report, I absolutely LOVED the book! I grinned, laughed, and felt all the feels while reading. Chloe and Red felt fresh and new and achingly familiar at the same time. Both characters were so wholly unique and well rounded; I felt like I was best friends with both of them.
The book follows Chloe Brown, a woman living with fibromyalgia who is looking to turn her life around. When she moves out of her parents’ house, she collides with the sexy, and friendly landlord Redford… who she is wary of on sight.
Chloe! What a grump. I freaking loved it. Chloe’s gruff sense of humor and unapologetic attitude was one of my favorite parts of the whole book. A startling contrast to Chloe was one of the sweetest and most sensitive heroes I’ve read in a while. Red is the cutest. Who doesn’t love a giant, artistic ginger? I adore the sunshine and the grump trope.
So many interesting and deep topics were explored: chronic illness, abuse, class, race, and so many others. Talia Hibbert deftly wrapped these all in a delightful and light rom com package. I am in awe of the masterful writing in this expertly paced novel.
Overall, I totally get the hype surrounding this book. In fact, consider me a new GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN pusher. I know I am one of the last people to read this book, but if you haven’t, it’s a must read!
