Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre ~ Review & Swoon Thursday (@ReadAlessandra)

Love, Chloe was a freebie that I picked up from an author's newsletter (for the life of me I can't remember which one!). I've read a few of Alessandra's books and was excited to get into this sweet read!

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.

Love, Chloe was such a fun cute read! Chloe, a privileged rich girl, had her world turned upside down after everything she had was ripped from her. Seeing her struggle through life, trying to find her feet for herself was an eye opener, but it made her such a stronger and better person.

I liked seeing Chloe grow throughout the story, she wanted her diploma and took on a job that was well beneath her. She pushed through, sleeping on a friends couch before she scraped together enough cash to get her own space once again. I was sad for her too though, because I could see that she wanted the support of her parents, but they seemed to have pushed her aside for their own selfish needs. I did love how she had such strong friends that stood by her despite her fall from her socialite status.

Chloe developed a few new friendships while in her new job, ones that she will keep forever. She also fell for someone that she wouldn't look twice at if she still had money. She was vulnerable and opened her heart to him, and I think this change in her was what I enjoyed the most.

I love the way that Alessandra Torre told Chloe's story, with short chapters spread out over about 14 months and tweets from Chloe. I was able to get Chloe's full picture and understood her struggles. I've read a few of Alessandra's books now, and whether it be a light or darker read, she sure does suck me into her world! I'll be keeping an eye out for her next project, I assure you! 

*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

Hehe... the tension was building between these two, it was only a matter of time!

“Are you sure you lost your keys,” he grumbled, “or did you wake me up for something else?”
I put my hands where I’d wanted to for the last ten minutes, sliding them down the bumps of his abs and over the line of his hips, hooking my fingers underneath the waist of his pajama pants. “Both?” I whispered.
There was a moment of silence, his eyes on mine. They were wary, as if he didn’t trust me. And hungry, as if he was fighting just to keep away. I stared up at him, my breath catching in my throat, and begged him for more with my gaze. He sighed, his eyes falling to my mouth, and I felt the moment he gave in, his head lowering, his lips pressing to mine.
