"Absolutely charming... a flawless balance of humor, heat, sweetness, and depth, and I loved every page." - Helen Hoang, USA Today bestselling 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 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...… (lisätietoja)

Although the prologue looked promising, I didn't read past the first page of chapter one. I don't like swear words in my books. ( )

Very fun rom-com, and it was very empowering to see a main character with a disability, but it was a little steamier than I expected. ( )

I do not like contemporary romance stories. Mostly because they are so formulaic. I read far to many Mills & Boons and Harlequin romances back during high school and in my 20s, and eventually they all began sounding the same. The all used the same formula. They all had to have a conflict that causes some angst and which split the 2 lovebirds up for a time before they finally get back together. so I stopped reading them and now I dont read them at all.

The only reason I purchased Get a Life Chloe Brown was because it was going cheap at the time, and because it has been really really hyped on booktube!!

Please note that this review is explicit (dont blame me - the book is rather explicit as well!!) so I will be stating things in an explicit manner. R-Rated review -in other words. You have been warned.

It's been sitting on my TBR for months now and I finally decided that since I was not going to read it for the September read-a-thons (Bookoplathon and Magical Read-a-thon) then I would just read it now to get it over with!!

I got up to chapter 12 and there was still no angst. I know there has to be some angst and I did not want to read it so I put the book down and did not read it for a week. I picked it back up today to get this done. Sept is now just 3 days away!!!!

So basically Red is the superintendent of Chloe's apartment building and when they meet, the sparks fly and they both get electrical shocks. He falls first. Both of them have been hurt by previous relationships so they are both wary. But they are both also falling for each other.

Chloe has made a list of things she needs to do to "get a life" instead of staying at home because of her chronic pain and illness. One of the items on the list was to find herself a new Home, which means she moved out of her parents home and into an apartment where Red is the superintendent. Another item was to have "meaningless sex". A third was to go camping. A fourth item was to ride a motorcycle. And a fifth was to go dancing at a bar.

One day, Chloe finds herself stuck up a tree after trying to rescue a cat, when Red comes across her unable to get down. So he climbs up and helps her to get down. She spots his motorcycle and asks if he can take her for a ride. He agrees and the next day she goes for her first motorcycle ride around the city!! Chloe explains why she wanted a ride on a motorcycle - so Red asks how he can help her to get through her list.

Over the next few days Red takes Chloe out on the night to a bar. She does not like that experience very much. After the bar experience they both sat down in a square where he fingers her to an orgasm. Then he makes plans to take Chloe camping.

When they go camping, roast marshmallows over a small fire, ask each other 20 questions and end up having full-on sex - all very explicitly described.

The next day they pack and return home. They are about to have sex again in chloe's bedroom when Chloes (Brainless stupid) Sisters both invade her apartment and demand some answers. Then it all goes to hell when one of the sisters mentions "meaningless sex" as an item from Chloes list. An item she had not mentioned.

Red panicks and thinks Chloe is just using him, so he gets dressed and leaves. Chloe begs him not to leave, but the last words she says are quite frankly cruel -If you can leave this so easily then don't F***ing come back.

Red just gets outside her door but cannot bring himself to walk away because his heart is breaking. So is hers. He immediately apologizes, but when he asks if he can come back to talk, she says NO. How do I know you wont do this again? You dont trust me. And now I cant trust you.

It takes a week for Chloe to not break down and speak to red again. During that week, he send her small gifts and a note which she has so far refused to read. She also goes to see her grandmother Gigi and asks her why does Love have to hurt so much. How can I be guaranteed that it will never hurt. Gigi says there is No guarantee. Love is hard work, but yes people can do or say horrible things that do hurt. But Love is definitely worth it!!!

So one week after the split, Chloe finally reads Red's apology note. She then goes downstairs to his room, they both apologise again, they both say ILY and they both fall into his bed.

I was in tears when they were having their argument. I cannot believe that Chloe could be so cruel.

And on the grounds of the stupid sisters brainless interruption and mentioning the "meaningless sex" item, and thus being the DIRECT CAUSE of Chloe and Reds Breakup, I hereby swear that I will NOT be reading their stories. I like SMART women. Chloe is smart.

The 2 sisters ACT like dumb blondes and I detest reading about dumb blondes.
I know they are not dumb blondes because they are of colour!!
One of them supposedly is doing a PhD, but she sure does not ACT like she is!!

Such an excellent read! It’s sucks you in and keeps you hooked the whole way through. It was funny, romantic and wholesome. I found myself constantly smiling while reading. Definitely one of the best books I’ve read. ( )
