Summary

Talia Hibbert delivers a witty, hilarious romantic comedy about a woman who's tired of being 'boring' and recruits her mysterious, sexy neighbour to help her get a life - 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 a list of directives to help her 'Get a Life':

  • Enjoy a drunken night out
  • Ride a motorbike
  • 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 out step-by-step guidelines. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job: Redford 'Red' Morgan.

With tattoos and a motorbike, Red is the perfect helper in her mission to rebel, but as they spend more time together, Chloe realises there's much more to him than his tough exterior implies. Soon she's left wanting more from him than she ever expected...maybe there's more to life than her list ever imagined?

Nice to read about diversity

Wasn't all that keen on the narrator. Didn't stop e from wanting to know what happened next. Enjoyed that it had diverse content.

Genuine romance

Red and Chloe have a genuine relationship with relatable hardships , nothing feels forced during this story. There are genuine moments of hilarity and awareness and care . This book prevents you from seeing Chloe as sob story due to her disability and gets you to see how amazing she is regardless of it , it was wonderful to hear how Red and Chloe bring the best out of each other regardless of their own fears, in addition to how they work with each other and on their own in order to build their resilience their damaging past experience.

I honestly wish there would be more story like this highlighting that you can be in a perfect healthy relationship if you have a disability or have come from a past of abuse.


Also the love scene Read tantalising Well.
I recommend , this as a read. I will be listening again.

What the hell were they thinking with this narration

The narrator doesn’t suit this book at all. Her voice is too mature for the characters in this book and it makes the sex scenes feel really awkward, like your mom is talking to you about ‘cum’.

What a delightful and refreshing romance!

I absolutely adored the story of Chloe and Red. Far from the usual romantic tropes of beautiful and timid girl and brooding and rich hero, this is an endearing story about a girl living with her physical disability and dealing with chronic pain and fatigue and a boy who has been in a toxic relationship and how they find their way back into having a meaningful relationship. Amazing narration and superb story writing🙂

Some laugh out loud moments

On the whole this was an enjoyable read - great narration from Adjoa Andoh. I really enjoyed the banter between the main characters (especially their hilarious email exchanges). The author has gone to great pains to represent the underrepresented, which is commendable but it all felt a bit tick boxy and superficial. As a light read and to while away the time, then you can't go wrong with this novel.
