such a hard review for me to write, not because I m upset about what to say, but the opposite because it was so damn good that I just want to screech incoherently until you ALL go buy it immediately and shove your faces into this incredible, hilarious, swoon worthy, steamy, gorgeous, complex little rom com It s genuinely everything good in the world of romance books rolled into one adorable little package and I justdeep breathI don t know how to possibly describe to you how much I love this book She was Chloe fucking Brown, and she was starting to wonder if she d been brave from the beginning If she d just needed to love herself enough to realize it All this time, I thought nothing could ever trump Talia s A Girl Like Her, that no romance heroine could ever mean as much to me, but no, I was wrong Chloe Brown is the romance heroine of my heart, and I couldn t love her any if I tried Talia s blessed me before with characters I could relate to for their size, or their mental illness struggles, or their painful pasts, or even just their quirks and humor but until reading this book, I didn t know how monumentally desperate I was to find a character I could see my chronic illness and pain represented in Chloe was used to seeing her life and her illness as normal, but she wasn t used to other people acting the same way I m not exaggerating when I tell you that I sobbed over Chloe s struggles and victories, that Icried my eyes outover how genuinely and purely Red loves her and wants to take care of her, that this book literally changed me for the better because somehow, through some miraculous turn of phrases, Talia Hibbert was finally the angel who could get it through my thick skull that I am worthy of being loved, even on my worst days, I m choking up just typing this because it meant that much to meChloe meant that damn much to meYou, sir, are a menace A menace to good and decent society, and to noble, chaste women such as myself She might have been insulted at how hard he laughed if she wasn t giggling herself I m sorry, lovelies, I really didn t mean for this review to turn into such a rambling mess, but I just whew On a lighter note because at its core, Get a Life, Chloe Brown is a rom com and a damn successful one to boot this book is adorable, and sexy, and so hilarious I laughed so hard, and if you all could see my highlights on my kindle, it s unreal I must ve highlighted a solid 30% of the book just for sweet, swoony, and laugh out loud moments Red is a stunning hero and I think he s just about impossible to avoid loving And then there s Chloe s family If you ve read anything by Talia, you know her side characters are always absolutely BRILLIANT, and these are no exception I m bursting at the seams to get my hands on Chloe s sisters stories because these women are fantastic and I need to get to know them as soon as humanly possible For you, he said, as though it was obvious It s always for you I feel like I say this in every review I ve written for this magnificent woman s stories, but I m having to force myself to shut up because this review s gone on long enough already and at this point, I just want to resume incoherent screeching at you This is easily one of the best books I ve read all year and most likely my singular 1 favorite read of 2019, and you need it in your life All quotes come from an advance copy and may not match the final release Thank you so much to Avon for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review Buddy read with Bex This story is literal happiness 99 pennies on kindle, lads This turned my guarded mushy heart into a puddle This book attacked me defences, destroyed my emotions and left me with a stupid, lopsided grin on my face and tears casually strolling down my cheeks.I don t even know who I am any I knew half way through reading this book that I would re visit this story again and it would be infinitely better the second time round, and the third, etc What I love about Talia Hib This story is literal happiness 99 pennies on kindle, lads This turned my guarded mushy heart into a puddle This book attacked me defences, destroyed my emotions and left me with a stupid, lopsided grin on my face and tears casually strolling down my cheeks.I don t even know who I am any I knew half way through reading this book that I would re visit this story again and it would be infinitely better the second time round, and the third, etc What I love about Talia Hibbert s stories are how respectable, consensual, clean, honest, vulnerable they are On the flip side, she writes some of the most filthiest scenes The parallels are a damn treat and make for such a great romance and a whirlwind of a story I absolutely adored it THIS WAS TRULY EVERYTHING AHHHH This was one of my most anticipated books of the year and I am SO happy to report that I loved it just as much as I was hoping I would Chloe was so strong and smart and hilarious and Red was so swooney and kind and loving and MY HEART IS SO FULL If you want to read a romance that is equal parts sexy and swooney, look no further PLUS THERE IS A CAT WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT This is the book equivalent of a Double Stuf Oreo This is not a typo for reasons unknowable, the frosting like contents of an Oreo are branded as stuf With one F Which somehow makes the already gross idea of ingesting something as vaguely and euphemistically named as stuff even grosser Anyway, it takes an already good thing an Oreo, or a romance novel and takes the thing that makes it good the aforementioned Stuf, or the romance novel stuff I will discuss later , and gives youThis is the book equivalent of a Double Stuf Oreo This is not a typo for reasons unknowable, the frosting like contents of an Oreo are branded as stuf With one F Which somehow makes the already gross idea of ingesting something as vaguely and euphemistically named as stuff even grosser Anyway, it takes an already good thing an Oreo, or a romance novel and takes the thing that makes it good the aforementioned Stuf, or the romance novel stuff I will discuss later , and gives youof it.I can t believe it exists, I can t believe we re lucky enough to exist in a world in which it exists, and yet I am delighted that these things are true.There is a lot of good stuff between these pages, just as there is a lot of good Stuf between Double Stuf Oreo cookies.I mean, the REPRESENTATION here The EFFORTLESSNESS of that representation The depiction of chronic pain, which is not happily ever after d away, nor is it ignored when it s not convenient to the plot Our protagonist, who is fat and black and both of these things are part of the fact that she is beautiful Our hero, who is recovering from an abusive relationship and not magically free of side effects from it This is just so representative of so many marginalized identities and so effortlessly good at it It makes you wonder whybooks can t be like this.That being saidIt took me a REALLY long time to get into this story By a really long time, I mean at legitimately the 75% mark I didn t feel invested until there were less than a hundred pages to go, but I eventually felt semi invested and that s what counts Yes, maybe I didn t start rooting for this couple to get together until Drama Drove Them Apart but still Who s to say if that isn t just because of what s wrong with me as a person The best parts of every romance are the Suffering Will They Won t They parts Give me season 2 Jim and Pam flirtation over season 4 Jim and Pam relationship any day.Another good thing about this romance and a bad thing about me when it comes to romance I am incredibly awkward and tend to cringe at any smut scene, but this was well done so thank you to the author for rescuing me from myself on this one.I just want every book to have the cream to cookie ratio that this book had Did I lose the metaphor Bottom line This book is so miraculous it made me talk too much about Oreos and in doing so apparently lose my mind i am satisfied.review to come 3.5 or 4 stars I DON T KNOW not asking for much from this book, just that it be the cutest thing in existence and make me happy and fill the void within me you know casual reading stuff Get a Life, Chloe Brown
