ONLINE: Romance Book Club - Get a Life, Chloe Brown
Our Romance Book Club is a monthly book club focused on contemporary, historical, and LGBTQ+ adult romances. Romance is a genre that gets a bad rep, and we want to help change that. There's so much fun writing happening in Romance today, and we think everyone deserves to see themselves in a steamy romcom novel.
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 ... 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.
"I love getting lost in a story that I cannot put down--and even better if it involves a lot of laughter and swooning. Talia Hibbert always delivers and her books are the perfect material for a beach trip or a pick-me-up. She's unputdownable, every time." -- Taylor Jenkins Reid
"Get a Life, Chloe Brown is a tour-de-force romance that tackles tough problems like insecurity and chronic pain while still delivering a laugh-out-loud love story full of poignant revelations about human nature... But what gives this story its depth is Hibbert's voice -- you live each character's pain, joy, laughter, love, longing. And when Red Morgan and Chloe Brown get into your head -- good grief -- there's nothing like it." -- NPR.org
