From NYT Bestseller Alessandra Torre...
The sexy serial that exploded on Cosmopolitan.com is now a full-length, standalone novel.
Chloe Madison. That’s me. A former NYU princess who just fell from grace, right off my pampered Manhattan throne and onto the unforgiving steps of Nicole Brantley, socialite and queen bitch. Now, I walk her dog and mix her smoothies. Try to navigate my own problems while fixing all of hers.
I want what every New York girl wants. A career, an apartment, and true love, preferably in a smoking hot package.
It turns out I’ll have to fight for all of it.
I always loved to write diaries. It was a habit I started when I was like 10 years old or something. Yeah, I know, what exciting things could possibly happen in that age? It was never about that, it’s about the concept. Diaries are fun, diaries are one way of saving memories and recording moments along the way.
A diary could show the journey of someone in his/her life, it captures when he/she is at his/her best, the downfall moments, exciting moments, embarrassing situations and the routine.
Alessandra Torre succeeded in portraying a regular diary, with it’s ups and downs. She took me on a journey that I didn’t want to end. It wasn’t perfect, it was beautiful and that what made me love it even more.
“Life might be a bitch, but love? She kicked that bitch’s ass.”
I hated Chloe at first! I did the famous mistake and judged her!! She was awesome , but she was still holding on to her old life and comparing, it was exhausting sometimes.
I hated how she treated Carter at first, and I wanted to hit her on the head.
But after this, she slowly changed. She found her true self. I loved her inner thoughts, they were so damn funny!! Of course she had her weak moments. And they were a lot!!
Chloe was never a shallow , fake and stupid person. I felt like she was hiding and sheltered in her old life. She needed to be set free and in one way or another , her new life uncovered the amazing Chloe no one knew about.
“Love was what got me into trouble in the first place. Love should be less stubborn. It should listen to red flags and reason. It should learn from past mistakes and guard itself from future ones.”
I think I drooled 98% of the book over Carter. This man defined the term : Sexiness and beauty!! He was such a romantic and softie, but still all male.
I loved how he admitted that he judged Chloe at first -like everybody else- , but he took a chance and believed in her eventually. I didn’t understand his emotions though. It seemed that he was blank, I couldn’t get inside his head while reading.
“Closure. Such an odd concept. Did relationships really need it? Or was it just an excuse for one last glimpse at what could have been?”
At first, I didn’t catch on the chemistry between Chloe and Carter. I thought that it would never evolve into something more, but oh boy, I was so wrong!
I ADORED Chloe’s friends!!!! They turned out to be awesome and they didn’t abandon her. Talk about true friendship!
Vic was an asshole, but I didn’t doubt for one moment that he didn’t love her.
I just felt that Chloe was hanging on him , because he was her last thread connecting her to her old life. She eventually let it go. And this was the moment when Chloe accepted her new life!
“When I was little, my mom told me you should find a man who loved you more than you loved him. That way, she explained, you would never get hurt. In theory, it made sense. But now, I believed half of the beauty of love was in the loving. I didn’t want to be the aloof woman who had a boyfriend wrapped around her finger. I wanted to be terrified of how madly-in-love I was, ready to give up everything for him, for us.”
What can I say more? I was blown away by the simplicity of this book!
Alessandra Torre never disappoints.
And all the love to Chloe.
