"Super cute romcomish romance with disability representation! I enjoyed this book. At times I felt like there was more telling than showing. Some really funny one liners throughout which I loved. Not a super eventful storyline but lots of character development especially for Chloe. She really felt like a fully formed character. There was spice sprinkled through out 1.5-2/5 🌶 level. "
"So heartfelt, hilarious, and steamy! I will be picking up the next book."
"I absolutely LIVED for this entire story, Chloe and Red are the perfect balance of romance, spice, plot and emotional baggage you could want in a book. Ugh the end had me crying in the best way. Talia does a wonderful job with her writing. I absolutely felt and understood Chloe’s fears with love, and when you’re not like everyone else. It’s a beautiful story of self discovery, love and acceptance. Can’t wait to read about the other Brown sisters!"
