Book review: Get a Life, Chloe Brown


I'm super late to the Brown Sisters party but now that I'm here, I'm never leaving!

Get a Life, Chloe Brown is the story of a young woman with a debilitating chronic illness who's more than a little tired of how blah her life has become. If something were to happen to her, she suddenly realizes, she'll die never having ridden a motorcycle! Or gone camping! Or enjoyed a drunken night out!

She meets Red, an artist who's broken emotionally with issues that he's still having difficulty overcoming. BUT he rides a motorcycle, and he's a camping pro. And he can hold his liquor.

Red agrees to help Chloe complete her seven-item list and, as they check off the items, they begin to set right what is wrong in each other. The story of their healing journey is sassy and steamy and a lot of fun, and I can't wait to read the next in the series. Take a Hint, Dani Brown is out in June so you still have time to read this one first.

It's always kind of awesome to love a book and then find out the author who has written with such confidence and mastery of her craft was only 23 at the time. I'm looking forward to many more years of great stories from Talia Hibbert.

Book review: The Flatshare

Book review: The Flatshare


What if you had a roommate whom you'd never met, but could discern the kind of day he was having by the notes he left or the supper he cooked, or whether he had washed his coffee cup?

Because Tiffy has an insane ex and Leon is temporarily broke, the two strangers agree to share a single bed flat, which they can do because they work opposite shifts. Implausible, yes, but I totally bought into it.

The Flatshare is told from the two characters' POVs and even though quirky Leon speaks/writes without pronouns or articles for most of the book, the story is engaging and lots of fun. Tiffy is bold and vivid, Leon is a kind and gentle person that one falls in love with almost immediately, and the secondary characters are fantastic. I think we need a next book, about Richie and Rachel!

One of my favourites this year.
