“A thrilling, life-altering adventure that will keep readers riveted... Hibbert's rom-com stands out for its high stakes, distinctive heroine, and scorching hot romance. Their off-the-charts chemistry elevates this from cute romance to un-put-downable page-turner." - Publishers Weekly (starred review and Best Books of 2019)
“[An] incredibly funny, romantic, and uplifting book. Red is as charming, sexy, and vulnerable as can be, but Chloe steals the show with her sarcasm, wit, and eccentric coping mechanisms. Even better, Chloe is surrounded by a family of remarkable, glamorous women, including two sisters who will be featured in later installments... A revelation. Hilarious, heartfelt, and hot. Hibbert is a major talent.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Will readers giggle at the cuteness of the banter and weep at the emotional truths that are thrown down as Chloe realizes it’s not her list that matters, and Red realizes Chloe is helping him get a life, too? Absolutely. Is this book what the word “charming” was invented for? Probably. This interracial romance with a disabled heroine is an #OwnVoices treat that will satisfy readers who love a cinnamon-roll hero and love scenes that scorch the dang pages. “ - Booklist (starred review)

From the Inside Flap
Talia Hibbert delivers a witty, hilarious romantic comedy about a woman who's tired of being "boring" and recruits her mysterious, sexy neighbor to help her get a life--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 glamourous 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...--Marie Claire (16 Best Fall Book Releases)

I am obsessed with the heroine, Chloe. I love how she isn’t a cookie cutter heroine. I think she is more relatable. She is plus size. She is a woman of color. She has chronic pain. She’s someone who I’d want to be my friend. I love her bravery. She decided to make some changes in her life to live it to the fullest.
I want a Red in my life. I love how he wasn’t the perfect hero. He had issues of his own to work out. He gave me warm fuzzies.
I just loved this book so much. I heard that we will get another books set in this world next summer (2020). I cannot wait.
I felt everything with this book, literally. I cannot stress it enough and for me it was kinda painful since I've been forcing myself to not feel as of late. But it was skillfully done and it felt necessary. I felt understood, somehow validated, filled with hope.... all the while swooning and drooling over the love story. A great way to start my 2020. Love the author's note at the beginning, sort of like a trigger warning that i very much appreciate. The writing felt like smooth butter, even with terms that my "spanish is my native-tongue" brain couldn't understand. Made the tough parts of this easier to get through, and the sexy scenes that much more enjoyable. Healthy discussion about toxic relationships, chronic illness, mental health. Made me feel empowered and sexy as a disabled, fat woman myself. Keep in mind though, that i am new to reading the romance genre i guess. As i used to hate it, but this is one of the few books that so far have managed to change my mind.
Will keep an eye out on this author. Interested to see what she puts out next, for sure.
1. Our heroine Chloe, trying to "get a life" and have new experiences
2. Our hero Red, who is a very sexy, very thoughtful ginger
3. The cat who graces the cover and deserves that starring role
4. The adorable cover and all the emotions I get from seeing the love shine through
5. That banter!!!! Especially the one chapter that is mostly emails back and forth. Yessss.
6. Thoughtful representation and discussion of how marginalization, chronic pain, and emotional abuse affect your life
7. Pro-therapy messaging, the world always needs more
8. It's so swoony and romantic
9. But also really, really hot at times
10. The next book is already available for pre-order - *click*
Anyway I live this book and if you’re wondering if you should buy it the answer is a resounding YES after this you’ll be binge reading all of Talia’s books (which you should because they are all amazing).
Chloe is a terrific heroine who suffers from fibromyalgia and tries her best to not let that define her. Her past has left scars on her but after a near death she wants to seize the day and it’s here Red comes in. He’s Chloe’s superintendent and they are so much fun. The bickering and the simmering heat is top notch. Red is just the sweetest guy who has his own scars which I didn’t see coming. I enjoyed following their beautiful courtship that slowly evolved into a glorious love.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown is my first book from Talia Hibbert and I’m hooked. Her humor, romance and flawless writing is right up my alley. I’m so excited to read Dani Brown’s book. These sisters are fantastic.

I loved it.
That being said I love all the characters, especially Chloe and Red. Their connect and strength together and separately is beautiful. Cant wait to read and Dani next year.
Loved Chloe and Red so much as individuals and as a romantic pairing. Both were nicely fleshed out and it was such a delight watching their relationship unfold after their initial prickly start.
The book was also filled with delightful side characters like Chloe’s sisters Eve and Dina (hope to get their stories too in the future), Gigi, Vik and Smudge the lovely cat.
As always Talia Hibbert knocks it out of the park. Can’t wait for the next one!!
The writing is brilliant. It's clever, effortlessly laugh out loud funny, completely engaging and hot hot HOT!
I've been trying to find an author who writes sweary, sexy books with depth and complexity that are set in the here and now. Too often the books I have read are either misogynistic BS, dreadfully written, or so twee I want to hurl. Get A Life, Chloe Brown is none of these things. It hit my sweet spot and kept on getting sweeter.
If you like your heroines to get off in a graphic and erotic way then this book is for you. If you like well written books, with swearing and fabulous characters and comedy, then buy this one. NOW!
Admittedly I have a thing for people with issues of any kind as the protagonists in anything but especially in romance. This really delivered. Looking forward to the next in series.
Chloe was a fabulous heroine, cranky and vulnerable, sarcastic and whimsical, and overall infinitely lovable. But Red Morgan is the fluffiest heartthrob hero I've read in forever. He's just soooo... lovely. Sweet and loving, filthy-mouthed and sexy, hurt, and perfect.
Talia Hibbert is an expert on internal conflict and I like an action-driven plot but the list and Chloe's mission to complete it drove the story forward enough that I didn't get fidgety, waiting for something to HAPPEN, already. Furthermore, it's just plain funny and I cackled maniacally more than once, enthusiastically reading passages to my patiently amused worse half. Also, if you ever wanted to read the Big Mis, an infamous, mostly terrible plot device in romance stories, executed to perfection, in a way that doesn't make you give up on those characters in utter disgust, this is the book for you. Actually, if you like reading about nice people finding the love they deserve at all, this is the book for you, period. Just go and read it already!
