Description

“Absolutely charming...a flawless balance of humor, heat, sweetness, and depth, and I loved every page.” (Helen Hoang, USA Today best-selling author of The Bride Test)

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 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 10,000 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....

Wonderful!!!!!!

I like all this author's work, but I absolutely loved this one. As a woman with a chronic illness I was thrilled to discover that the heroine had one also. It's so rare to find a character that I can relate to so completely. This is now one of my favorite books.

ugh.

I'll apologize, up front, for the annoyed tone of this review and for any "spoilers." It's just that my irritation at wasting several hours of time is fresh. :) I was listening to this for a book club, or I'd have turned it off a LONG time ago. The "book" is hours and hours of describing, in ridiculous detail, every tingle and thought... we get it already... attracted to each other... blahblahblah It's the most predictable story line ever... he thinks she's a prissy bitch... she thinks he's rude... they can't "figure out" this nagging attraction... they get to know each other... fall in love... tingle n squirm... sex... break up... can't live without you... back together... sappy happily ever after... the END (finally). See... I can write that in one badly-punctuated paragraph. The author could have done so much more to develop the characters. Instead, we got shallow puddles of neurotic need. I can't help but wonder how this got out of the publisher's garbage can. who are these people giving this 5 stars??? There is so much more out there to read. I'm off to find something that doesn't make my brain feel gross.

OMG!

This is the first novel I have listened to or read by Talia Hibbert. Prior to this novel I knew nothing about her. This Texas girl figured this was a USA contemporary romance. When the narrator began with a non-American voice, I thought "Okay." I went with the flow of the novel and I am so in love with this author! She did a wonderful job of writing this novel and the narrator did a great job of reading. I did think Chloe's voice sounded like Dame Judi Dench on occasion, but it did not distract me from this super funny and romantic story.

Fantastic reader but so wrong for this book

I gave the performance one star because the voice was way too old for this part. Listen to the sample and decide for yourself. It kind of drove me nuts. The voice sounded old enough to be the protagonist’s grandmother.

THANK YOU TALIA HIBBERT!!!

I have never before felt so represented or understood; never have I been able to relate so deeply with a character in a book! And I never knew how wonderful it would feel to have this! As someone with, among other things, fibromyalgia and chronic pain, just like Chloe Brown, her story resonated with me like no other. I can’t begin to explain how this book, and the character of Chloe, can help people like me to feel seen, validated, and worthy—even deserving—of love. That, to me, is precious. And to have this story so well done, with such care, and a hilarious sense of humor, profound feeling, and sensuality—is just amazing!! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who suffers with chronic illness themselves, or loves someone who does, or for anyone else who enjoys a great steamy rom-com.

The narrator, Adjoa Andoh, did a great job as well. She was great with giving each character very distinct voices, and I enjoyed how she gave Red a more northern English accent. (But I love ALL British accents, so that may not count.) I also appreciated how her voice for Chloe subtly changed over the course of the book, as her character developed. Through her narration of Chloe, she showed us how she was growing and changing, bit by bit. Well done!

**Warning** Contains graphic sexual scenes. If you don’t like, or are offended by, some scenes of light-erotica, this will probably not be the book for you.

Chloe and Red Got My Life Together

Although the narrator's voice seemed too old for the characters, I was still able to enjoy this love story. Their chemistry and banter was the highlight of the book. I loved that Chloe was not deemed some perfect, size zero heroine; it made her quite relatable. Also, it's nice to have ginger beau for a change. Ready for the second book

just divine

This was one of the best narrations I have listened to. Excellent timing and acting.
I don't know how Talia Hibbert manages to be so funny all the time. It's just zinger after zinger. Such fun, clear character writing, and the tension between the leads is just delicious.

Freaking Adorable

It took a couple chapters for me to get into the story but then I fell in love. The main characters seem like real people with real problems. Their differences are funny and endearing. I am going to be rereading this regularly. I thought the narrator seemed too old to voice Chloe but that faded away. She was even perfect at voicing Red. Cute, Hot, Emotional. 10/10
