From New York Times bestseller Alessandra Torre....
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.

"Funny, empowering, and sexy"
This book shows the struggle of a rich to poor to amazing women all while being funny, empowering and sexy! I listened to it via audible and it was just such a good book, so easy to follow along. Started slow, but totally worth it!! Absolutely love Chloe!!

"Entertaining.. But racy"
I liked the story. It was interesting enough to want to listen to, but I could have done without all the sex scenes. I found myself skipping past every time one came up, like enough already, we get it, they like each other. The love story between the two main characters was a bit forced and a little unbelievable. Chloe is this high end girl that came from all this money and when she lost it, not once did they mention her wanting to go shopping or struggling with only wearing what she already owned because she had no money. But the author talks about her wearing the expensive stuff. It just wasn't realistic. Overall, it is an easy beach read and worth it if you have time to kill and want something light.
I was a little disappointed by this book. It moved slow for me and seemed to drag along.
"Favorite for years to come!"
I loved this story after reading it so much I had to get it on audio. I love it even more now having listened to it. Carter & Chloe's story is swoon worthy!! This will be a book/audio that I will indulge in over & over every year. I hope A. Torre gives us more ...I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Vic spin off!!!! Makes me giddy thinking about that possibility 😁😍😋
This story would make the perfect movie. This seems to be the way that Alessandra Torre writes and I love it. Loved Hollywood Dirt also.
"A good summer listen"
I liked the story, and the characters were very interesting. It didn't grapple my attention as other books have, but it's a great lite read. I also wasn't expecting this to be as graphic was it was, but I found myself not really minding.
Her voice was a little drabby sometimes, but she was good about differentiating the characters voices.
"Not my favorite novel from this author."
It all seemed to be a little bit disjointed. I was confused about who the hero was supposed to be until well past the midway point. This is normally fine in a book if it is part of the angst, but it wasn't. I couldn't connect to any of the male characters, because I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and figure out what the twist, plot, or even story line was for these characters, but nothing ever happened. By the time I was sure who the love interest was we were supposed to be rooting for, nothing really happened and it was kind of...."an ohhhh....that's it?" moment for me towards the end of the book. Also, the heroine was one of the weakest people I've read in any story, supposedly not being able to resist her ex if he was within 2 feet. It got old in a hurry. He was supposed to be this awful cheater of a person, but we never saw any negative of him other than her ramblings of his past mistakes and I just ended up feeling bad for him in the end and just not liking the heroine at all.
The upsides were that Alessandra's writing is always well done even though this book just wasn't for me, and the narration was decent. The volume levels of the narrators voice was an issue though, so the audio production definitely could've been better.
I love Alessandra's books, so I'm hoping this book was just a blip and it just wasn't for me, but I'll absolutely be one-clicking her next one.
"LOVE LOVE LOVE"
- No money
- No place to live
- Her Bachelors degree being held hostage until she pays her past due tuition
- Actually have to find a job - ends up with a bitch of a boss
- Trying with every fiber of her being to not take back her cheating ex-boyfriend
Chloe grew up in a life of luxury, spoiled socialite, rich and without a care in the world. It isn't until she's evicted from her cushy apartment by the FBI after her parents are arrested for insider trading.
I loved this book. It's well-written, addictive, and extremely steamy at times. It follows Chloe as she tries to live on her own two feet in NYC, juggling a new job, friends, and men. I felt like I was curled up with my popcorn watching an engaging drama one minute and then fanning myself during the delicious romps she describes, past and present.
Alessandra Torre yet again delights the reader with her words and her way of weaving a story, this time with a lighter spin on romance. Sprinkled with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, Chloe's story of finding a new side to her lovable Manhattan and of herself easily becomes an unforgettable reading experience.
Total pool read
I really enjoyed this book, it was funny, witty and so sweet :)
Chloe has a very rude awakening when her pampered life comes to a dead end street with a brick wall. Her parent's funds are frozen and she has to figure out how to make it on her own.
I enjoyed this story. Very touching.
