This was my first-ever romance read and it did not disappoint. In fact, it converted me into a romance reader for life. Talia Hibbert writes characters who are real and flawed, and you just can't help rooting for them to succeed not just in the romance, but in every facet of their lives. Get a Life, Chloe Brown is funny and charming, with hilarious banter and very steamy! I loved seeing Chloe and Red's relationship grow and can't wait to catch up with the other Brown sisters as the series continues. Recommended By Bethany O., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
"Absolutely charming... a flawless balance of humor, heat, sweetness, and depth, and I loved every page." Helen Hoang, USA Today bestselling author of The Bride Test
A witty, hilarious romantic comedy about a woman who's tired of being "boring" and recruits her mysterious, sexy neighbor to help her experience new things — perfect for fans of Sally Thorne, Jasmine Guillory, and Helen Hoang
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...
