An easy read, just not for me. I'm not someone that enjoys steamy scenes, but if you are after a cute romance, with some steamyness and chronic illness representation this could be one for you. I loved the story but not the sex scenes

Delightful, had me smiling throughout!

The representation of chronic illness was very well done and refreshing.

However, while I found the relationship very cute, I didn't find it to be entirely believable. It kind of just sprang out of the ground. As a reader, I want more context and build-up! Also found the writing a tad repetitive at times.

Also a bit too cheesy and spicy (lol) for my personal taste, but that's definitely just my opinion!

It was definitely a lovely story and I'll try the other Brown Sisters books at some point!

Omg I ADORED this. Definitely the best romance I've read in a while. I loved Chloe and Red so much, together and individually. I really appreciate how the author treated both of the characters' main issues. I thought it was handled really well and the insights she gave into each were so realistic and believable. <Spoiler> Red's reaction bc of his trauma broke my heart because it was so accurate. Same with Chloe's following response. I've been there and felt both of those things. I also really loved that the big issue/disagreement wasn't just a miscommunication thing but was them needing to work through their personal demons. </Spoiler> This is gonna have a special place in my heart for a long time.

I loved this book. Talia Hibbert does an amazing job depicting chronic pain and illness, and as someone who suffers from chronic pain, it felt so beautiful to read a romance I could relate to. I think Talia Hibbert absolutely treated the issue, the characters, and the readers gently. 

I adored Chloe and Red. The banter was amazing, I died for the emails. I loved the way Chloe was a plus size MC without talking heavily about her weight or insecurities surrounding it. Very excited to continue the series.

I'm obsessed with this author. The three books she wrote in the series (the Brown Sisters) are all amazing and have such a range of diverse, three dimension characters. This book both acknowledges and talks about chronic illness / disability, as well as abusive relationships, in such a wonderful way. The dialogue between characters is hilarious, the intimacy scenes are hot as hell, and the emotions conveyed are astounding. I cannot wait for what this author rights next!

Really loved the representation, the conflict was predictable but I liked the ending.
