‘Get a Life, Chloe Brown’ follows a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost – but not quite – dying, Chloe Brown’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.
This book was a spur of the moment decision for me to read, being in the mood for an enjoyable contemporary romance at the moment. Needless to say, I’ve never loved a romance story quite like this one.
Chloe Brown is a sheer delight, falling in love with her more and more throughout the pages. She’s matter-of-fact, sarcastic and methodical, but those are also some of her flaws. Once something is in her head, she’s very difficult to change and I loved her development of learning to let loose and enjoy her life with Red. Also, the representation of Fibromyalgia was incredible to witness, it being incredibly underrepresented in media.
Redford Morgan is another brilliant character, and another one I fell in love with alongside Chloe. He’s perfect for the protagonist, and I absolutely adored his quirks and history, proving that life can get better for absolutely everyone.
The writing style is simplistic but addictive, making this book an incredibly easy read. Although, I personally don’t enjoy reading smut, it’s simply personal preference, I admired the steaminess of the story and still found it an incredibly enjoyable read.
Overall, I deeply enjoyed this novel. The sexual content within was a little much for my liking, however, the characters more than made up for it.
