    An absolutely charming read!

    Chloe Brown is a woman on a mission. After suffering losses in her life following the diagnosis of a chronic illness, Chloe has become a bit of shut-in. With the encouragement of her sisters, she develops a list on how to get her life back on track. With the help of her sexy building superintendent, she slowly begins crossing items off her list and begins to get her life back. The book is charming and kept my interest throughout. I appreciate the fact that the author has developed a character with a chronic illness which gives some insight into living a life with constant pain/discomfort and how life goes on. Chloe is a woman you just want to take care of - a similar experience I found while reading Elenor Oliphant is Completely Fine. However, a few lusty scenes will completely disassociate any similarities with the aforementioned book. Thank you to Edelweiss + and HarperCollins for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here. I rate this book a solid 4.5/5 stars.

    wonderful and true

    Loved it. just loved it. Red is a true hero. Chloe is also brave and wonderful. Both characters' personal challenges felt well presented and there was no wallowing in the pain. Talia Hibbert is a treasure and you all should read all of her books.

    “Bravery wasn't an identity, so much as a choice.”

    This book was delightful. Simply delightful! It might've taken me uncharacteristically long to finish it, but it was all due to the reading slump, not the story itself. I loved Chloe and continued to cheer her on through her quest to shake her life up. Red was a great male character as well. First of all, this book is effortlessly diverse and that's something we need. And I'm not only talking about physical appearance but it is a part of it for sure. Not all men are tall raven-haired strangers with six packs and not all women are blonde and ivory-skinned, with waistlines so tiny someone can wrap their hands around them and have their fingers meet. It also comes down to characteristics. Call me picky, but I do so enjoy characters that are not carbon copies of people I've read about previously, cut out of a bunch of tropes and stereotypes and nothing else. I like...substance. It doesn't need to be much but just a bit of it. And this story had lots of substance. Chloe is sarcastic, often times prickly and unapologetic about it (love it, love it, LOVE it). Partially, it might be due to her having fibromyalgia, which main symptom is chronic pain. What I appreciated about this aspect of the story was that it was present, but not really part of the plot? Judging from the writing, I'm sure the author has done lots of research on this illness because of the way Chloe's experience has been described - how it affected her relationships, how it affected her life, how it affected HER. As well as people's reactions and how it all contributed to her reluctance to form new relationships and trust people. With Red, we also have a male hero who is not a standard alpha-jerk and really, I've had just about enough of those, at least in contemporary romance, so bless Talia Hibbert for this. Red is kind, sensitive and considerate. He takes care of his mother, has soft spot for elderly ladies and knows how to manifest his attraction to women in a non-threatening non-creepy way (which is common decency, which should not really be celebrated as it's bare minimum, but I still like to acknowledge an author who writes their characters like this due to the sad fact it's not a standard YET). Red also has history and part of it is having been in an abusive relationship. I thought this was also done with a lot of care and respect for the topic. What I absolutely loved about Chloe and Red's relationship was how they respected each other, their feelings and past. Despite the rocky start, they opened themselves to the possibility of something new, something exciting - at the cost of being vulnerable to the other person. What they did was not perfect because both of them were not perfect. There were misunderstandings and mistakes. But what really moved me in their story was the way they never invalidated each other's hurt and feelings. This, to me, underlined a simple truth - in life, and in relationships, you have a right to feel your hurt and your feelings are your own. How you choose to heal and move on is yours. But you do not have a right to hurt other people because of it. Sometimes you will, because we're all just humans, but then it's important to recognize it and work on yourself and fix it. Being brave is a choice. Being kind is a choice. And reading this book was a beautiful adventure - and an excellent choice.

    An absolutely delightful read!

    From Hibbert's strong voice and style to her sensitive handling of Chloe's character, this book was an absolute delight to read. By turns sweet, funny, and poignant, it kept me glued to the (virtual) page to see what came next. I loved it and will be looking for more from this author. Highly recommended!
