“Get a Life, Chloe Brown” by Talia Hibbert

About the book, from HarperCollins:

“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…”

About the Author, Talia Hibbert:

“Talia Hibbert is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author who lives in a bedroom full of books. Supposedly, there is a world beyond that room, but she has yet to drum up enough interest to investigate.

She writes spicy, diverse romance because she believes that people of marginalized identities need honest and positive representation. Her interests include makeup, junk food, and unnecessary sarcasm. Talia and her many books reside in the English Midlands.”

Why I selected Get a Life, Chloe Brown for the February 2023 Giveaway:

  • This is a wonderful and heartwarming romance that tackles tough problems (like insecurity and chronic pain) while still delivering MANY laugh-out-loud moments.
  • Hilariously, this romance makes a strong case against love, and isn’t shy about leaning into the fact that love is not a cure-all for pain and trouble (but it IS a delightful thing to welcome into your life if and when you can) ❤
  • This gnome loved that this was a lighthearted, emotionally satisfying read, even when the main characters are broken (but loveable), the stakes are high, and the endgame has the potential to be devastating (but this is a romance, so you know that a “happily ever after” is coming) – you get invested in these characters!
  • The beautiful part of this story is that it is focused on growth, and the two main characters place value in working on themselves throughout this entire story – and helping each other along the way.
  • Finally, it’s the Hallmark month of LOVE! And we haven’t shared/hidden a romance before, which is hard to believe… so what better month to hide a romance than in February? ALSO, this gnome wants our happily ever after!!!
