I read the first book in this series “Get A Life, Chloe Brown” and really enjoyed the read so I immediately knew I was going to read this one and hoped that I would be as entertained as I was with the first one.
This is a friends to lovers romance story which follows the second Brown sister Danika Brown. Danika Brown is a serious PhD student and career driven woman who doesn’t believe in romance or long term relationships. Her friendship with security guard, Zafir Ansari takes a turn when he rescues her from a workplace fire drill gone wrong which is caught on camera and goes viral on social media. This video triggers the attention Zafir’s charity for young boys needs and Danika agrees to a pretend relationship (which includes sex) with Zafir as a way to help the charity receive more exposure. As they spend more and more time together, they realize that they want more than what they had planned. This is a story about loss, grief, second chances and love.
I enjoyed this one although not as much as the first book . I loved how the author used this story to show how hard grief can, how it affects our lives and how we can try to cope with it. However, I didn’t connect with Danika’s character as much as I did Chloe but I liked Zafir’s character because he was more relatable and I found his back story and family quite interesting. Of course, their diverse backgrounds made everything better, not to mention the humor that holds the story together.
This was an easy quick read and I particularly enjoyed listening to the audio book which I believe made my experience better. If you are looking for a nice feel good romance, I recommend this book.
