Publication Date: 

Today's #OMPReads comes from Lelia and Anna - GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN by @taliahibbert! "when chloe is nearly hit by a car, she decides she's not living boldly enough and decides to 'get a life' with a list. and she enlists her hot new neighbor, red, to help her.
we love this book for so many reasons. chloe is such a tough broad. she's sweet and organized but also, tough--and we learn that the list isn't the first step in her journey, and this isn't the first challenge she's set herself.

red is also a FANTASTIC CHARACTER. he grows and changes and the relationship DOES help him toward health and healing-- but chloe doesn't "fix" him. HE makes the changes in himself, and learns from the two of them what a relationship can feel like (i.e., NOT like emotional manipulation and putdowns). relationship health is never sacrificed in the name of either sweetness or steam. we give it ALL THE THUMBS UP!"


“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


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 thingsperfect 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
