You know girls like me. You hate girls like me. The privileged blonde who skips her Ivy League classes when she’s had too many Soho martinis. The one draped on the asshole’s arm because he drives a Bugati and screws like a champ.
I was that girl. I loved being that girl.
Then, my door was broken in. Literally.
And in that moment? Everything changed.
If there is one word I would use to describe my experience while reading this novel it would be: FUN. Love, Chloe was fun to read (especially as I worked out on the elliptical), fun to think about, and just an overall fun experience! I say “experience” because not only could you read Chloe’s story, but you could keep up with her story via some incredible Instagram posts in every chapter! Do you know how much I loved this?! The Instagram lover in me practically screamed with excitement at the gym when I saw that first Instagram post inside of a novel that I was already loving.
Love, Chloe is a story about a wealthy girl who has to figure out a whole new way of living (in NYC, of all places) after the financial downfall of her parents. With wit, humor, and a quirky personality, Chloe handles every situation in ways that are incredibly entertaining, making for one hell of a book. This novel was definitely like a romantic-comedy TV series transferred into a novel. Which all made sense when I later discovered that Love, Chloe started off as Cosmopolitan online serial (I will definitely be reading that serial ASAP)!
In every chapter it felt like Chloe was dealing with something new, whether it be a broken vase or the mysterious and sexy building superintendent. I couldn’t take my eyes off of this book because it really felt like I was reading the diary of someone who lives a very juicy life (in my favorite city).
Even though I’ve labeled Love, Chloe as a sort of rom-com, it isn’t as heavy on the “rom”, which was an unexpected – but pleasant – surprise! I loved that Torre focused more on the turmoils of Chloe’s life (which definitely included romance) and how she handled the new life thrown at her, while also trying to discover who she was in the mix of it all. I am all about books centered around main characters dealing with self-discovery and growing up. Chloe was definitely dealing with lots of that.
All in all, Love, Chloe was a light-hearted, fun, and entertaining novel, that I would read over and over again! I seriously loved this novel if that was not evident in my review. I loved every aspect of it and I honestly could not name one thing I did not like about it. Fingers crossed we’ll get more Chloe in the future! <3
