Get a Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

Talia Hibbert writes steamy, witty books with diverse casts. ‘Get a Life Chloe Brown’ is no exception. Chloe has moved out of her family home, the first task on her “get a life” list. She has suffered with fibromyalgia for the last few years. After her diagnosis, she lost the person she was. Somewhere between camping and travelling the world with nothing but hand luggage, she is determined to find herself again. Redford is the tattoo'd caretaker of Chloe's new apartment building. He's also an artist who has discovered a new style, but what if all his past success was down to his ex-girlfriend? This is a modern romance: sexy, sweet, and real. Hibbert’s portrayal of chronic illness shows the frustration and strength involved when your body refuses to cooperate. She emphasises that bravery comes in all forms: being open about your fears and feelings, challenging yourself, and admitting that you might not need anyone else but you might just want them. KM
