Review: Love Chloe by Alessandra Torre

From NYT Bestseller Alessandra Torre...

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.

WARNING: This sexy standalone has jaw-dropping moments, crazy sexual chemistry, and will make your cheeks hurt from smiling. Read at your own risk.

Review by Jen Hagen

One word can describe Chloe – entitled.  Chloe’s family exuded wealth and she was raised amongst the finest things until BOOM one day it all vanished.  Now Chloe is a college graduate without her diploma because she can’t pay off the debt she owes the university and she’s sleeping on her friend’s couch.   She is desperate for a job and that is how she comes to be a dog nanny/personal assistant.  It’s a far cry from the glamorous job that Chloe envisioned having, but at this point beggars can’t be choosers.  During one of her personal assistant activities she meets sexy Carter, but he doesn’t fit her qualifications as to somebody she’d like to get to know further.

A maintenance worker.  Great material for porn.  Not so much for Chloe Madison’s Life Plan

Carter shows up in Chloe’s life again and this time she sees him differently – both metaphorically and physically.

I could get a freaking foot massage by running my soles over the hard ripple of those abs.

Carter is a good guy.  He’s easy going, has a lot of common sense, is trustworthy, and sexy…very very sex.  He’s a little bit of a sex god if you want to know the truth.   The only bad thing is he learned his sexual ways from Mrs. Robinson…eww.    Carter and Chloe have a comfortable relationship with each other.  It was very refreshing to read.  There were no power struggles between them.  They are each other’s best friend and it was very sweet.  Lots of humor amongst their conversations.   Chloe had a boyfriend in the past cheat on her.  He still wants her and will stop at nothing to win her back.  
He has the money and the power to do so.  Carter has her heart.  What does Chloe want? versus love.

Could I do this?  Could I be the girl who ran toward right instead of wrong?  

Chloe has done surprisingly well adjusting to her life without money.  She is not a vindictive person.  She is truly genuine and a great friend.  She gets herself into some pickles, but deep down she has a great sense of morals (well except for that ONE bad decision she makes involving her ex boyfriend).  Things eat at her and it’s very difficult for her to hold in secrets that will hurt another person.  Carter is THE MAN.  Seriously.  He’s just so darn cute and adorable.  He is lovable inside and out.  His parents on the other hand…not likable at all.  He also will have a choice to make…money versus love.  It’s the name of the game.  Let’s hope love wins.  

Whether I’d told him so or not, I loved him.  He made me realize how empty my old life had been.  And in his eyes, I saw a future that I wanted more of, a future where I was a better person.  Wow.  I might have just become a grown-up.
