I've been hearing so MUCH about this book across Bookstagram. I love romance, though I don't always pick it up. I usually gravitate towards it when my mental health starts to slip and I need something fun and easy to read. This checked all my boxes, plus I need to meet Dani Brown!

In the first installment of The Brown Sisters we meet Chloe Brown. She's a web designer who suffers from chronic pain due to fibromyalgia. After an almost near death experience, Chloe is determined to "get a life". She's missed out on a lot of "normal" life experiences due to her disability and she's determined to cross some things off her list. What she doesn't expect is Redford Morgan to be the one to help her cross things over her list or to completely change the list.

Chloe has such an amazing support system in her sisters. I wish we saw more of her sisters in this book honestly, but I'm just as excited for their individual books. Dani is already a disaster bi, she can't sit in chairs properly. I'm sold, here is my heart Dani. Eve was adorable! She is ever energetic and her effervescent personality never failed to light up a scene.

The romance between Chloe and Red was freaking adorable. I couldn't but root for these two. Also they have a meet cute over Chloe trying to save a cat stuck in a tree and ASFkjahPB. Also I fucking loved that cat. I loved the representation in this book. Chloe is fat, Black and suffers from chronic pain. This is so far from "typical" romance novel rep and I AM HERE for it. Redford suffers from PTSD due to a past relationship that was both emotionally and physically abusive, this manifests in anxiety, panic attacks and general distrust. I ached for these two so much and I loved them together. Also this fucking quote:

“You think this is a big deal because, no offense, you've had a lot of people in your life who claimed to care about you but didn't act like it. That's not me. I can cook, and right now, you can't. So I'm doing it for you because that's how people should behave; they should fill in each other's gaps. "

My romantic heart just about died with this. Red and Chloe both said some many things that gave me instant feels, because I wish a romantic partner had shown even 1/4 of the kindness and forethought that these two do throughout the novel.

Lastly, I loved this book so much because Red is an artist who is finding his passion for art again. It was so beautiful and made me miss my more artsy days. Overall, this book was wonderful, an instant mood booster and I can't wait to meet the other Brown sisters.
