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. 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…
Do you ever feel like reading something outside of your comfort zone? I have been in those moods lately and I am happy to say that Get A Life Chloe Brown Did exactly what I needed it to do. I am a mood reader and anyone that is a mood reader knows it is not easy to find something you can love and stick with. Get A Life Chloe Brown was such a sweet book with wonderful, quirky characters. It has drama, love and a lot of steam. I quite honestly did not expect how much steaminess it really had.
The characters are what really bring this book to life. We follow Chloe who recently had a near death experience and suddenly feels that she needs to get a life because you never know what’s going to happen. She moves out of her parents house and gets her own apartment where she meets Red (we can talk about Red later). Chloe is not your average girl, she suffers from a series of chronic illnesses that often make her unable to function. She often blames her illness for the things she cant experience and for the people who have faded out of her life. The only people she can count on are her sisters, who often keep tabs on her. Chloe has this wall built around her because she is afraid of getting hurt. She comes off as being snotty and mean but deep down, she is a sweet person who cares for the people she invests her life with. There is a lot of growth in Chloe’s character and that is one of the many things I enjoyed about this book. Redford is Chloe’s love interest. It doesn’t necessarily start off with flowers and sunshine but it definitely builds up over time. He is such a caring, loving person. I genuinely felt so much love for him. Red has gone through a lot of mental abuse by his former lover and has a hard time moving forward. He tends to think very little about himself and his work and serious trust issues. Chloe changes all that for him when they start spending time together. Both of these characters compliment each other so well. I can feel their emotions in the authors writing. I found the constant bickering hilarious. I enjoyed the chemistry they shared and all the steamy moments that came a long. Be prepared for some of the dirtiest sexy scenes I have ever encountered in a book. Did I like it? Yes! Will I read the next book in the series? Yes!! It was just too good to pass in my opinion.
Overall, I really enjoyed all my time reading this book. I had the most fun with it and I even read a few lines to my Fiancé because I just couldn’t help myself. I think this will be a good fit for those that like rom/com or easy books to read when you’re going through a reading slump. If you catch yourself picking this one up, you might want to pick up book two while you’re at it because I think this author will not disappoint.
Get A Life Chloe Brown definitely mentions topics a long the lines of mental illness and mental and physical abuse. I don’t recommend it if these topics are triggers for potential readers.
