    'He thought of Dani as the elegant one, with her shaved head and her floaty, black outfits.' - Get a Life, Chloe Brown

    I mean, who wouldn't want to read Dani's book after that description. Also, she's bisexual and the love interest is British Pakistani 👀

    If it was worth it, and you wanted to, you could make room for a relationship, too. What you get out of being loved, its supposed to be worth the compromise. When its good, it makes you want to compromise.

    The second book in the Brown Sisters series, "Take a Hint, Dani Brown" (TAHDB) explores the deep vulnerability of love while portraying the pressures of academia, recovery from acute grief, and the odd yet significant role social media can play in our lives. This story delves into heavy topics:

    Ohh everyone is in for an AMAZING read coming up. If romance is your gig, then this book is for you.

    I loved everything about this book. The smart, witty, witchy, Dani. The serious, romantic, protective Zaf who READS ROMANCE NOVELS. The fake relationship. The love. The whole story was just amazing. I am a sucker for romance so I was totally encapsulated in this story. I love how Talia always touches on really important topics - in Chloe Brown, she had a medical condition. In this book, Zaf has

    I absolutely devoured this book. I couldnt stop reading. When I tell you Talia is one of my fave romance authors its no lie. Her books are always so poignant and humorous. Her characters to multifaceted and relatable.

    I loved Zaf and Dani from the first page. Zaf is like this big grouchy teddy bear, seriously. Most people are intimidated by him but not Dani. She knows hes this sweet guy who she brings tea for and who gives her a

    Thank you Avon Books for gifting me a copy of Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert.

    For those of you who have been following me a while on my reading journey, you may remember that I loved Talia Hibberts last book Get a Life, Chloe Brown. So, since finishing Chloe Browns story, I have been anxiously awaiting for Hibbert to release her book about the second Brown Sister, Dani. I started reading about Dani Brown as soon as the book arrived on my front porch and promptly devoured it in 48
    Felicia Grossman
    This book is fabulous. I adore both Dani and Zaf individually and together. It's a fake dating trope, where, after a mishap, everyone believes they are dating, and thanks to a little social media magic (despite Zaf's reluctance due to a bunch of significant concerns regarding his privacy AND his own mental health), they have a chance to use some publicity for the charity that Zaf started.

    The chemistry between them is both lovely and hot. They have a wonderful "opposites attract" vibe with Zaf

    Fake relationship catnip. Dani is a driven PhD candidate with ever-changing hair colors and no time for a relationship. When her friend Zafir, the (hot) building security guard, rescues her from an elevator and the two of them go viral, he asks for her help. Hes trying to get his youth rugby charity off the ground, and the unexpected publicity of their relationship might be just the ticket. So the two friends agree to pretend to date for a month. As long as there are no feelings involved, its a ...more

    Expectations were high, high, high with this one, and Hibbert delivers another book perfect for fans of Get a Life, Chloe Brown or her Ravenswood books.

    Dani's wonderful, sharp, sarcastic, flirty, and full of confidence on the surface with a buried vein of deep insecurity that makes her deeply terrified of commitment. It's no secret that I love a commitment-phobic heroine and a romantic hero, and this book sooooo deliveres, but more on Zaf in a moment. I really love how Hibbert shows the complex

    The author's last book, Get a Life, Chloe Brown, was a hit with me and I've really looked forward to read this book about Chloe's little sister Danika.

    Danika is a PhD student who loves her job and definitely don't want a relationship. She doesn't believe in them. Zafir is the security guard in Danika office building and one day saves her during a fire drill. He definitely wants a relationship with a woman, he wants to find his true love.

    After Zaf saves Dani, the video of the saving goes viral

    I absolutely adored this book. I don't think my words will do it justice. Talia Hibbert did it again! This was the epitome of *chef's kiss*.

    Zafir is a dream. Zafir and Dani together are just wonderful and real. And the sex-- yo! YO!
    I knew before 50% that I was in love with this book. They hadn't even done the deed yet. When they finally did-- WOW. Just wow.

    I need to re-group and come back with more words, words that are better. Just know that I highly recommend this novel. If you get the

    Talia Hibbert is magic, and I will officially read everything with her name on it. I thought I adored GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN, but that was before I devoured TAKE A HINT, DANI BROWN. I loved this book even more than the first (and I really, really, loved the first one). As someone who has dealt with anxiety and panic attacks since high school, this resonated on so many personal levels.

    Witchy, witty, brilliant, confident yet insecure Dani was imminently relatable to me. Her journey to self-love

    Oh my goodness! There are so many things that I love about this book. I absolutely adored Get a Life, Chloe Brown. Reading this one, I was so nervous. That's some pretty big shoes to fill, right? Luckily, Talia did not disappoint.

    Not only was TAHCB extremely cute, adorable, and funny, but it was also SEXY. Zafir is one of the hottest heroes that I have ever read and I am so in love with him. He's a freaking big bulky fit security guard and what does he do in his spare time? Reads

    Take a Hint, Dani Brown it's the perfect blend of sweet and steamy!!!
    I loved Dani. She was straight forward, blunt at times, fascinating, and adorable and the way she melted into Zaf was just the BEST.Now Zafir, he reads and defends romance books plus the way he treated Dani, he was just so swoony.
    Amazing family dynamics and friendship dynamics with fake- dating, this book is a definite recommendation.

    Hibbert does a really good job with turning traditional romance tropes upside in extremely smart ways. I was very much here for this.

    4.5. I took off half a star because there's a line where the hero can "feel" the raised lines of the heroine's tattoo and...that's not how tattoos work and it bothered me the rest of the time. I'm sorry. Otherwise this book is AMAZING.

    It's cute! I still don't love the language of the sexy times but the story was fluffy with just a smidge of angst and that's what I'm looking for in a RomCom.

    Talia Hibbert is a USA Today bestselliing 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. She also
