"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

USA TODAY BESTSELLER

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…

"This is an extraordinary book, full of love, generosity, kindness and sharp humor." - The New York Times Book Review

*Featured on the TODAY Show! Named a Best Romance of 2019 by Entertainment Weekly, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Apple, and Amazon, and Best of November from Essence, Woman's Day, Marie Claire, Buzzfeed, Popsugar, Bustle, Bookish, Bookpage, Entertainment Weekly, and Washington Post*

Review Quote*"I love getting lost in a story that I cannot put down-and even better if it involves a lot of laughter and swooning. Talia Hibbert always delivers and her books are the perfect material for a beach trip or a pick-me-up. She's unputdownable, every time."
Review Quote*"A fizzy, intoxicating sense of humor that bubbles off the page. Her characters are vital in both their pain and their pleasure, their vibrancy an infusion of life and laughter that is an infectious delight... Hibbert's novel is a life-affirming, soul-searching, beautiful gem of a book that should be required reading for anyone in search of their own happily-ever-after. It's a resounding, triumphant testament to the power of healing, the beauty of love, and the essential nature of compassion. May we all get a life, and a love, like Chloe Brown."
Review Quote*"Get a Life, Chloe Brown is a tour-de-force romance that tackles tough problems like insecurity and chronic pain while still delivering a laugh-out-loud love story full of poignant revelations about human nature... But what gives this story its depth is Hibbert's voice - you live each character's pain, joy, laughter, love, longing. And when Red Morgan and Chloe Brown get into your head - good grief - there's nothing like it."
Review Quote*"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."
Review Quote*"[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."
Review Quote*"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. "
Review Quote*"This stunning romance tackles important topics, such as living with disability and surviving emotional abuse, without ever getting bogged down in despair. Hibbert's prose sparkles, and the heat is high..."
Review Quote*"Absolutely charming. GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN is a flawless balance of humor, heat, sweetness, and depth, and I loved every page."
Review Quote*"Talia Hibbert is a rockstar! Her writing is smart, funny, and sexy, but most importantly, she'll make you fall in love with her sweetly imperfect characters, who are so real you'll wish you could give them all a hug."
