Oh my disappearing buttons, I just finished my first book from Talia Hibbert. Get A Life, Chloe Brown is an interracial love story filled with great characters, witty dialogue and the purrfect cool cat Smudge. The cover is the cute animated ‘it’ du jour in publishing. Its cute but very misleading. I was expecting another cute contemporary romcom with a heat factor of sensual instead I bumped my head on a nice and naughty steamy romance. The story went from 0 to 60 in a heartbeat. Totally wasn’t expecting it and I enjoyed every moment of it.
In the new Brown Sisters series, Chloe tries to shatter her boring lifestyle and enlist the aide of sexy neighbor, Red, to help her knock out her “not boring anymore bucket list” The more time Chloe and Red spend together, they become more addicted and break down each other’s walls. Both have been hiding from the world. And its very refreshing to read how the hero, Red Morgan, is living with insecurities too.
Words can change lives. After reading Chloe Brown, I dare say mine has changed too. Both Chloe and Red’s story teaches us to live our damn lives. You’ll get heartbroken, you might even experience loneliness, but the world is out there to grab. It’s a sweet, seductive and romantic story, perfect for wrapping yourself in a blanket for a warm and cozy read.

Enjoy a drunken night out.
Ride a motorcycle.
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…
