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 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.
LOVE, CHLOE is the story of Chloe Madison, a NYC society girl who falls from grace when the FBI seizes her family’s assets for insider trading. Left with only the clothes on her back, she’s forced to *gasp* work to pay for basic necessities such as food and rent. While she’s navigating the singles scene and trying to fix the disaster that is her life, she also has to deal with a very demanding psycho-bitch of a boss, a secret that’s tearing her up inside and parents that seem to have forgotten she exists. Each challenge and setback she faces turns her from a spoilt and shallow princess to a woman who, well, who acts like a grown-up.
LOVE, CHLOE is a stand-alone that is told in Chloe’s POV, except for the epilogue which is told in the POV of the man she chooses. I had a love/hate relationship with the “Who is Chloe going to pick?” guessing game. Will it be Vic, her wealthy but cheating ex-boyfriend who clearly still loves her and is willing to do anything to get her back? Will it be Carter, the really nice Super in her building who will never earn enough to provide her with the life to which she was accustomed? Or will it be Joey, the hot but egotistical actor working alongside her boss? I’m not going to tell you, so you’ll just have to read it for yourself. LOVE, CHLOE was my first book from Alessandra Torre and I quite enjoyed it. The only issue I had was with the number of characters throughout the story and I found myself wondering more than once “Who’s this again?”, especially when most of those characters faded in and out. But other than that, it’s a cute read.
