Review—Get a Life, Chloe Brown (The Brown Sisters #1) by Talia Hibbert

Publisher: Avon Romance
Published: November 5, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Source: Finished copy
Rating: 4 stars

Talia Hibbert, one of contemporary romance’s brightest new stars, delivers a witty, hilarious romantic comedy about a woman who’s tired of being “boring” and recruits her mysterious, sexy neighbor to help her experience new things—perfect 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 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 glamourous 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…


Life is good when you have a wonderful book to keep it interesting. Especially with Chloe was a hoot! I immediately loved her personality—seeing as how she‘s charming AND quirky. Then there’s Redford...the relationship he has with Chloe is complicated. As in there’s no love lost there. But oh, the chemistry is clearly palpable. 

 While I personally don’t have any experience with chronic pain, I do know people that have. I thought this was a very realistic look at what many go through every single day. I liked the fact that as a reader, we get a character that’s so real yet so down to earth, that you can help but fall in love with her. 

The best part of it all? The follow up novel will feature Chloe’s sister, Dani! Hibbert’a style follows similarly to Helen author I adore! If this is something that you’re a fan of, don’t waste your time in picking this one up!!

About the author:
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. She also rambles intermittently about the romance genre online.

Talia self-publishes via Nixon House and is represented by Courtney Miller-Callihan at Handspun Literary.
