Title – Love, Chloe
Author – Alessandra Torre
Release Date – March 14, 2016
Chloe Madison. That’s me. A former NYU princess who fell from grace, right off my pampered Manhattan throne and onto the unforgiving steps of Nicole Brantley, socialite and queen bitch. Now, I walked her dog and mixed her smoothies. Tried to navigate my own problems while fixing all of hers.
I wanted what every New York girl did. A career, an apartment, and true love, preferably in a smoking hot package.
It turned out … I’d have to fight for all of it.
I have seen Alessandra Torre write sweet, romance, suspense, twisted, dark, etc. Basically, you name it and she’s tackled it. She has a propensity for delivering incredible stories no matter what genre you place her in. I had followed the Love, Chloe serial every week on Cosmopolitan; it was just too addictive not to. Needless to say, when she announced that she’d be turning it into a full-length novel, I did a little jump for joy!
“…there’s a part of her that’s broken. But that doesn’t mean that she isn’t worthy of being loved. Everyone is worthy of that.”
Love, Chloe chronicles the fall from grace of a New York socialite, but in such a fun way. She is left to navigate what is essentially a whole new world for her, having to earn her way and everything she wants. She is faced with choices that end up testing her character, leading her to discover who it is she wants to become. Torre has essentially written a new adult romance, but with a fresh twist on it. There’s no anxious drama pulling you up and down on a roller coaster; just an entertaining piece that will leave readers giggling and dying to see where Chloe ends up.
“Better to risk my safety on a dim New York street than my heart to a blue-collar stranger.”
I normally don’t touch on the formatting in my reviews, but I just had to mention it for this one! Torre has provided such a cute surprise that had me anticipating the next delicious morsel. It was the perfect example of how the author likes to keep her readers on their toes, giving them something to delight in – other than the story at face value. Not only did it feel appropriate to the characters, but it is also so pertinent for the times we live in.
“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.”
Love, Chloe is a sweet, sometimes hot, novel that I found myself stealing moments to get lost in. The chapters were short which allowed them to roll into one another and before long, the rest of the world just faded away. I appreciated the cleansing read where I wasn’t waiting for the other shoe to drop, or some big twist that would gut me. It had elements of a romance, but I think my favorite part was seeing the transformation of the heroine. Sometimes, we all need to put ourselves first and it was refreshing to see Chloe find that. I have no doubt that readers will fall in love with Chloe Madison’s journey, and I’m certainly looking forward to the next characters Alessandra Torre introduces us to!
