Editorial Reviews


"If you love rom-coms, this incredibly charming novel will sweep you off your feet."  -- Popsugar (15 New Books Worth Obsessing Over in November)

"Get a Life, Chloe Brown is a rom-com with depth, one that explores living with illness, the benefits of therapy, and how two people can better communicate when they slough off their own rough exteriors." -- Shondaland

“Talia Hibbert is a rock star! Her writing is smart, funny, and sexy..."  -- Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Little Bridge Island and Princess Diaries series 

"a hot, hilarious rom-com sure to sweep readers off their feet." -- Publishers Weekly (Best Books of 2020)

"sublime... divinely funny... Hibbert blends insightful literary and cultural commentary with a love story that’s exuberant, hilarious, and restorative... Take a Hint, Dani Brown is a burst of sunshine, as happy and bright as the daffodil yellow of its cover, and we’d gladly bask in its light endlessly." -- Entertainment Weekly

"With Danika, Hibbert playfully subverts expectations, elevating the “too busy for romance” trope by giving her challenging personality traits that won’t disappear with a good shag and a few “I love you”s. She also wisely gives Zafir more to do than love Dani unconditionally, as deliciously swoonworthy as that is: He has to embrace his tragic past, as it's part of the man he is today. Funny, deep, and romantic as hell. Will leave you smiling for days." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"I loved this story! Chloe is a kick-butt female character who speaks her mind and doesn’t rely on anyone – even though she suffers from a chronic illness. Her strength and humor shine throughout the novel, making her extremely likable. Her chemistry with Red, her apartment superintendent, is off the charts – this enemies-to-lovers romance is full of steam... what starts as a silly adventure turns into a very sweet, tender love story. I devoured this one in just one day – would definitely recommend." -- (Best Romance Novels of 2019)

"a warm, laugh-filled, life-affirming tribute to the hard work and rewards of healing, honoring the courage it requires to love oneself." -- Entertainment Weekly (Best Romances of 2019)

"This is one of the best romance novels you'll read all year, and a perfect pick if you prefer your bi romance without anyone taking issue with multi-gender attraction." -- Buzzfeed (15 Novels to Read that Celebrate Bisexuality)

"A balm for whatever ails you." -- Washington Post (Best Romances of 2020)

About the Author

Talia Hibbert is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling Black British author who lives in a bedroom full of books. Supposedly, there is a world beyond that room, but she has yet to drum up enough interest to investigate. She writes sexy, diverse romance because she believes that people of marginalised identities need honest and positive representation. Her interests include beauty, junk food, and unnecessary sarcasm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book so, so much!!
By Laura In Literary Land on June 23, 2020
Talia Hibbert has done it again with the second book in her series about the Brown sisters. I loved this book so flippin' much!

Take A Hint, Dani Brown is everything I love about contemporary romance. First of all, the steam. THE STEAM! I think my kindle was smoking at times during this book and my cheeks were definitely flushed! Dani and Zaf have some smokin' hot chemistry and I loved every page of it.

The characters in this book are multi-faceted, complex, and truly unique within the romance genre, maybe even across all book genres. Dani is a black, bisexual, curvaceous woman and proud of it. She is fiery, gutsy, focused, ambitious, and passionate about life. In contrast to her bold exterior, she has a vulnerable core and struggles with self doubt and her measure of self worth. She's been hurt by love and relationships in the past and has set up a system of rules to protect herself for being hurt again. I related to Dani on so many levels and really adored her story. And then there's Zaf. I've never read a hero like Zaf. He's a big, brooding former Rugby player who's now working as a university security guard. He's the strong silent type. He's also Pakistani-British, sexy, a beast between the sheets, sweet, supportive, and emotionally intelligent. Are you swooning yet? Because you should be!

After accidentally starring in a viral video and earning their own ship name, Dani and Zaf decide to fake a relationship while they each benefit from this moment of stardom. And did I mention that these two are quite opposite each other on the personality spectrum? So we've got opposites attract and fake relationship -- two of my all time favorite tropes! This book was destined to be a winner for me!

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Get A Life, Chloe Brown, but I really, REALLY enjoyed the second book. This was a brilliant 5 star read for me. I feel like I can't stop talking about this one and I just might not!

🔥🔥🔥🔥/5 steam rating

Thank you @avonbooks @this_is_edelweiss for an ARC of this title!

4.0 out of 5 stars A lively, intelligent and passionate love story with diverse characters!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 12, 2020
Take a Hint, Dani Brown is the hilariously romantic tale of Danika Brown, a PhD student, and Zafir Ansari a rugby-player-turned-security-guard. Dani is an ambitious realist, and an all-round badass. Zafir is the brooding, sensitive, hopeless romantic. A video of them quickly goes viral, and as the internet dubs them #DrRugbae, they take advantage of the publicity to help Zaf’s start-up charity.

Both the protagonists are bursting with personality in this book. Their sharp back-and-forth highlights Hibbert’s talent for playful conversation. Their dynamic was so entertaining! There’s something about insults with flirty undertones that will always be funny to me. And I found the dialogue to be one of the most captivating elements of this novel.
I also love the diversity between the Danika and Zafir. Their race, body type, sexuality, and personality differ but they fit together perfectly. The secondary characters are delightful too. Dani’s sisters are amusingly quick-witted as always, while Zaf’s family are adorably charming.

Dani is a cynic when it comes to romance. Despite her fiery and blunt personality, she still comes across as very loveable human. Nevertheless, Zaf is easily my favourite character in the book (and funnily, Red was my favourite in Chloe’s book). I love that Zaf’s a romance-reading titan. All he wants is a happy ending. He also suffers from grief and anxiety, which is openly discussed throughout the book, and expertly covered. I found his way of thinking to very relatable and realistic, and his vulnerability is refreshing to read. He comes across as a big, aloof, grouch, but in reality he’s a bit of a gentle giant. His goal is to combat toxic masculinity through sports and therapy – he’s too pure!

I’ll forever be a fan of Talia Hibbert’s writing. The way she portrays thought, emotion and awareness always makes her books so compelling! It’s difficult not to become wrapped in the lives of these characters because they’re so well-layered and refined. The drama, which occurs in almost every contemporary romance, is very believable. And I think the main reason is because the nature and traits of the characters are so well-developed, there’s little for the reader to question. As I saw the events unfold I thought, “Yep, that’s exactly how Dani would react.” Components like this make even the conflict a gratifying reading experience.

In comparison to Chloe’s story, I felt this book didn’t have the same addictive flow. I struggled with the pacing in the middle, as the characters and the storyline fell into a bit of a limbo. Fortunately, Hibbert’s moving and expressive writing made up for this, and the story picks up again as it rounds to a close. Although this book didn’t beat Get a Life, Chloe Brown for me, it was still an enjoyable (and swoon-worthy) read. I can’t wait to read Eve’s book next year!

Overall, Take a Hint, Dani Brown is an awesome addition to The Brown Sisters series. If you’re a fan of the friends-to-lovers and fake relationship tropes, as well as diverse romance that sits on the steamier side, this is the book for you.

PS: Talia Hibbert included a trigger warning at the beginning of this book. Why don’t all authors do this?!

4.0 out of 5 stars A relatable romance
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 9, 2020
I read Take a Hint, Dani Brown out of order with the other book. I made a rookie and didn't realise Get a Life, Chloe Brown technically should have been read first. However, this book doesn't give any spoilers relating to the first book. And thanks to one of my loveliest friends I was gifted Get a Life, Chloe Brown for my Birthday.

Anyway, back to Take a Hint, Dani Brown. I read this quite quickly over three days, and it was just what I needed. I knew it was what I needed because books like this kinda come with a sort of guarantee on what to expect at the end of the plotline. The only thing that can disappoint a reader is the actual plot, character portrayal or the writing itself, but the ending is the guarantee.

I love a romance, especially one where one of the characters fights it and boy does Dani Brown not get a hint when it hits her in the face (not literally). I found Dani to be quite endearing and really related to her. Some of her experiences match my own so, I understand where her reservations relating to letting people in. For the most part, I enjoyed Dani's development but near the end, things started to feel rushed for my taste but, it still worked for her character. Zaf sounds like a dreamboat and you can't help but root for him. His background is shockingly sad but, I love how Talia has intertwined it with promoting the importance of men's mental health which is usually shunned from this type of story but a particular stereotype of men. So bonus points for deviating from the norm. I also loved that neither of the main characters is white, again going against stereotype for this genre which I LOVE.

I enjoyed the tone of the writing, I found it charismatic and it pulled me into the story. The characters are all well described and aren't two dimensional. I found the read both funny and at times heartstring-pulling. We have all experienced loss and most of us have had a relationship with someone who wasn't right for us and been emotionally scarred. With that in mind, I feel like it's easy for many readers to associate with parts of this story. It's hard not to want to root for Zaf as you learn about him.

I'm interested in where this book is set and couldn't figure it out, why am I interested in the location you ask? Well, there were hints that it may be my home town, so I'm going to look out for more hints in Get a Life, Chloe Brown and the third book that comes out in 2021.

I really enjoyed this book, it was an easy read with endearing characters you wanted to route for. There is diversity in ethnicity of characters and sexualities, as well as decent coverage of the importance of men's mental health which is something we need more of in romance novels. I recommend this book for anyone looking for that easy read, particularly during a tough time as I found it uplifting and a very good distraction from real-life.
