Get a Life, Chloe Brown
Get a Life, Chloe Brown: A Novel | Talia Hibbert
Talia Hibbert, one of contemporary romances brightest new stars, delivers a witty, hilarious romantic comedy about a woman whos tired of being boring and recruits her mysterious, sexy neighbor to help her get a lifeperfect 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 almostbut not quitedying, shes determined to spice up her life and finally fit in with her glamorous family. Her Get a Life list has six directives, and shes already completed the first: finally moving out of her familys 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 its not easy being bad, even when youve 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. Hes 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 Chloes wealthy background. And why he never shows his art to anyone. And what really lies beneath his rough exterior

As a person who tends to read 'just about everything except for romance' I would recommend this to others looking to keep an open mind and give the genre a try. Sure, some of the romance tropes were present but despite some cliches I found this overall very entertaining! Good representation, character development, steamy scenes, as well as scenes that made me laugh and some I even found surprisingly relatable. Looking forward to the next 2! 🤗

Chloe Brown has a “Get a Life” list that she thinks her landlord Redford “Red” Morgan can help her with. The more time they spend together, the more their feelings for each other continue to grow. Will Chloe take a chance on Red?

This book was so cute. The characters were well-written and so was the plot. It was also humorous. I would definitely recommend this book.

A delightful story of discovery of self and the romantic other. Chloe and Red are two very different and emotional bag handlers who are both sweet and innocent at the same time. The insight into self reflection is tasteful and on point while revealing their honest vulnerabilities which keeps the reader cheering on this unlikely pair as they navigate self image, family issues, and personal failures. Lovely read.

I loved that the main character has fibromyalgia. I have fibro myself and it was a realistic look at the illness. (Though it can present differently for everyone.) This was sweet. I loved the characters journey in self awareness. It was definitely more spicy than I expected given the cover, but it didn't overwhelm the story for me. I loved this and will read more by the author.

I liked how main characters had troublesome pasts and one of them was living in pain. There were also interesting secondary characters - several scenes with them would have kept things more hilarious.

I really enjoyed the beginning of the book but the story started to loose it's magic at some point - drama at the end felt unnecessary.

This was overall cute & entertaining story.

#UnpopularOpinion I wasn‘t a fan of this rom-com romance. First it wasn‘t really funny, second it didn‘t feel like a romance. It was definitely STEAMY but not in a sweet romantic way. Chloe suffers from chronic pain ( and I appreciated the author highlighting the mental & physical limitations this causes the person) & in a way to take ownership of her life she creates a bucketlist of sorts. Enter Red, her hunky building maintenance man 👇🏼

Cinfhen who agrees to help Chloe. Of course they instantly fall heavily in lust with each other and sexual shenanigans ensue. Props for Smudge the cat 😻and the best kickass granny 👵🏽 Audio was fun and the author sets up the rest of the family to entice readers to read more of the Brown sisters adventures. 12mo

TheAromaofBooks @RaeLovesToRead - If you find a book with Catan in the title, let me know 😂 It's a favorite of mine. Dominion would probably be an easier one to locate!! 12mo

RaeLovesToRead Ooh! I have a book called Dominion @TheAromaofBooks !! By CJ Sansom... it may be in storage though is the only trouble! 🤔 12mo
Cinfhen Yup @Laughterhp I‘m going for LIFE 😉 my kids LOVE to “settle” @RaeLovesToRead @TheAromaofBooks my son has become a HUGE game board enthusiast since Covid and he too has some really unique and interesting board games. He would be disappointed by my lame choice😂😂 12mo
TheAromaofBooks I went through a kick a couple of years ago where I backed way too many games on Kickstarter. It was SO fun and I still have a few that I back every time they come out with a new one. Board games are my other addiction after books, and there are piles of them around. Some lesser-known ones that are just really pretty and fun to play that your son might like - Parks (Keymaster Games), Calico (Flatout Games) & Mantis Falls (Distant Rabbit Games) 12mo
TheAromaofBooks Mantis Falls is especially unique - it's a cooperative game, except each person gets a (secret) card at the beginning telling their roles, and it's possible - but not guaranteed - that one person playing is actually an assassin. It's a really fun way to play, trying to figure out if someone is trying to kill everyone else 😂 12mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @TheAromaofBooks for sharing your favorite board games!! Im going to pass along the list 💜 12mo
TheAromaofBooks I get almost as enthusiastic about recommending games as I do books, so it's a dangerous topic to broach around me 😂 12mo

I didn‘t read this series in the correct order. This was the first and my last. There are only 3 Brown sisters so the series is done. I really love them and their love matches. They have real life problems, living their lives and finding love. It‘s delightful, incredibly steamy at times but you‘re just so happy for the characters. I really enjoyed this series and am a little sad there isn‘t another book to read. So glad I stumble upon this series.

3⭐️ Cute story but not anything great. Listened to the audiobook and wasn‘t feeling the narrator‘s voice so had a hard time staying focused. Thought the fibromyalgia storyline was handled well.

RedxoHearts I will have to recheck this one out. It's refreshing when they actually do a good job handling the topic of Fibro or other chronic illness. 1y

I‘d heard so much about this series but was slightly disappointed. Chloe is chronically ill but makes a list of things to do to help her ‘Get a life‘. Introducing Red-the opposite of Chloe who becomes the man to help her tick off her list.
A cute, sweet story which was interesting to see how Red was attentive/tender to Chloe‘s condition. A predictable ending but an enjoyable journey along the way.

This was very cute and heartwarming. I loved the way chronic illness is honestly depicted, as well as the trauma from previous abusive relationships. The story felt very real and yet the characters were so loving. They made mistakes but figured out how to work through it. I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the Brown sisters' stories.

I really enjoyed this book. Seeing Chloe and Red dance around each other at the beginning, and then hit it off hard and then fall apart and come back.
I as a bit nervous when in the beginning there was a warning about abusive relations, but it was just in Red's past.
I was glad to see that Chloe was able to make her “bucket“ list, and as life changed she was able to adapt and chance. I can't wait to read book #2.

This is a fun book to get lost in if you don't want to think too hard and don't get mad at colorful love metaphors. It's very over the top, somewhat predictable and very descriptive. I love that the main character has a chronic pain condition that we see her struggle and live with. For anyone who has struggled with chronic pain, the representation matters. If you're looking for an easy romance read, I'd recommend this.

tokorowilliamwallace My previous roommate struggled with chronic pain and could never really get any medical answers or quality help for it, no matter how many things, programs, and different prescriptions he tried. He constantly, monthly had issues of communication and cooperation between the doctors, insurance, and pharmacies; and it was even very evident to me that the medical system was failing him and not really being very helpful. So maybe I should pick it up. 14mo

A sweet, romantic story of finding love. Chloe Brown suffers from fibromyalgia. She decides to make a list of things she wants to do to help her feel brave and strong. Along comes Red, the superintendent/artist to the rescue! I chuckled throughout my read, and that made me happy. #blameitonlitsy

I liked this steamy romance (don't let the cutesy cover fool you) because both of the leading characters were realistically, endearingly messed up. It was original because Chloe's chronic pain was portrayed so well that I could relate. The charactes seemed like real people and I liked Red.
