I know this is still a long way off, but I am just so unspeakably proud of my fave for getting signed on with Avon for this trilogy and I cannot wait to buy 18 copies of it and shove them in everyone's faces until she's just as popular and widely adored as she deserves to be. 😭💕

4 stars for Chloe Brown!
I enjoyed myself a lot reading my first Talia Hibbert book!

So many tropes I loved combined into one book.

Heroine making a life altering list

Chloe was such an adorable character, sarcasm and eccentricity her coping mechanisms for a chronic illness she’s been dealing with for years.
I don’t recall any romance book depicting in such depth what it’s like to live daily with invisible disabilities. Round of applause for the author for making Chloe’s

A pure exuberant delight. I loved this book.

It's just terrific. A romcom where the hero is really suffering the aftereffects of emotional abuse--not suffering in that Romance Hero "I will be emotionally cold and an alpha dick" way, but actually really hurt, emotionally vulnerable, can be triggered, and is nevertheless not in the slightest inclined to take it out on other people or to blame All Women for one abusive relationship. How rare. The heroine is fat (15 stone! Actually fat!) and disable

I received an ARC of GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN, and I expected great things from it because, 1) It's written by Talia Hibbert; 2) A chronically ill heroine--a first for me--who is also a computer geek; 3) a tatted, artist hero, and; 4)It's written by Talia Hibbert. So yes, I went into this book with very high expectations... And this book exceeded all of them.

Chloe Brown suffers a "my life just flashed before my eyes and I'm boring as hell" moment as a car just misses crashing into her on one of

The irony of the name of this book is that it gave ME life. Let me explain.

First, the plot. Chloe, the heroine, experiences a near-death experience and decides to make a list to help her "get a life" because she doesn't want to die "boring" (there's more to this, but I'll leave it simple for now). A couple of months later, she's living in an apartment complex with a sexy super, Red, who happens to be the hero and the only man who can help her tick things off her list.

Okay. Here's the juicy stuf

Holy moly I LOVE this book. Not only does Talia NAIL IT with Chloe's fibromyalgia, but also, the relationship between Chloe and Red. OMG it was SO wonderful. the development, their flaws, their strengths. I was rooting for them 100% from the beginning. Please read this book. It's so rare to have a heroine with an "invisible disability" especially one handled so well.

I recommend this to everyone.

*Spoiler free*

This is such a special book to me. Thank you so much to Avon for giving me the e-ARC, I'm so happy to have read it! I knew I wanted to read this book. I share a name with the main character, which is cool in of itself, but the Chloe is also plus sized, has chronic pain, and she gets cat. I've dealt with chronic pain, I'm plus sized, and I adore cats. It was so cool to see a main character that was like me in so many ways. Trigger warnings: aftermath of an abusive relationship, ment

I wanted to love this so much, but it didn't hit all of my buttons (haha inside joke if you've read the book). I will say that the banter between the two main characters was delightful and funny. And, as always, it's refreshing to read a book with a diverse cast, including a main character who is fighting an invisible illness.

Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss.

Perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory. I enjoyed this romance featuring an African British woman with fibromyalgia who decides to make a bucket list to take her life back from her illness and then enlists her adorable apartment super to help her with life experiences she missed while being sick. I loved the chapter where the two correspond via email and kinda wished there was more of their banter, but otherwise it was a fun read.

I can see how this would be lots of people's thing--there's the start of a lot of good stuff going on here!--and this was a solid 3-star review before the ending. But making a character grovel for getting triggered by their PTSD *one time* was unbelievably upsetting to read and I can't believe it's in a rom-com. I would not recommend anyone with PTSD (or any chronic mental illness, really) read this.

Such a sweet book. Chloe is just feisty enough, and Red is lovely and slightly prickly. The “get a life” list Chloe makes reminded me a lot of Tawna Fenske’s excellent book The List. I didn’t realize heroines making lists of exciting things to do was a romance trope, but I can think of some other examples from historicals, too.

Get a Life, Chloe Brown is the romance people with invisible disabilities and hidden scars have been waiting for--and a banter-filled story brimming with heart for everyone else. From the author's note at the beginning of the book, the reader knows that they are in capable, considerate hands as they begin their journey of falling in love and healing alongside Chloe and Red. I can't wait to shove this book into all my friends' hands (and politely hand sell the bejeezus out of).

An adorable, fast-paced read with romance AND representation? Sign me up! Get a Life, Chloe Brown doesn't skim on the sexy time, but also has one of the most realistic portrayals of chronic illness I've ever read. This is the kind of romance everyone should read.

5 stars. I love Chloe Brown with my entire heart, and I would fight the world for Redford Morgan.

I am going to recommend it to everyone this year. It is a nice romance with wonderful character development. Read it and enjoy.
*warning, there are some awesome explicit scenes in the book, if that isn't your thing, you can skim or read something else.

Talia, I loved the Ravenswood series so freaking much and you're giving us a chronically ill heroine? Thank you forever and I love you, also I wanna read this right now.

Talia Hibbert is an award-winning, Black British 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 sexy, diverse romance because she believes that people of marginalised identities need honest and positive representation. Her interests include beauty, junk food, and unnecessary sarcasm. S
