From NYT Bestseller Alessandra Torre...
The sexy serial that exploded on Cosmopolitan.com is now a full-length, standalone novel.
Chloe Madison. That’s me. A former NYU princess who just fell from grace, right off my pampered Manhattan throne and onto the unforgiving steps of Nicole Brantley, socialite and queen bitch. Now, I walk her dog and mix her smoothies. Try to navigate my own problems while fixing all of hers.
I want what every New York girl wants. A career, an apartment, and true love, preferably in a smoking hot package.
It turns out I’ll have to fight for all of it.

Plot/Storyline – 5 stars.
I felt like I was watching a TV series unfold…each chapter was like a new week with new depths to the plot, but yet a perfect continuation of the story. Throughout the book, there were so many different things going on in Chloe’s life that I was constantly intrigued with where her life was going to go next and what curveballs were going to be thrown her way.
The story was about a girl, Chloe Madison, who has “fallen” from the top of the society “food chain” and she has to essentially “pick herself up” and learn on her own how to survive. She goes from having everything at her fingertips and everyone at her beck and call: wealthy fiancé, expensive clothes, beautiful apartment, maids, etc, etc, to NOTHING, a life of bills and living paycheck to paycheck. Now, she’s struggling with not only the financial aspects of her life, but also personal life. Throughout LOVE, CHLOE, Chloe’s morals and self-actualization are put to the test. She has to figure out if the girl she was was truly who she is or if it was only circumstantial. She realizes “hitting rock bottom” isn’t necessarily the end of the world and maybe it was a good thing bc it made her a stronger person and helped her figure out what true love looks like. After some bumps in the roadand wrong turns, Chloe discovers her worth and realizes that materialistic things are not as important as having the love and respect of others and yourself. “Life is too short, morals were too important…” –Chloe.
Characters: 5 stars.
There was definite growth happening within Chloe’s character throughout LOVE, CHLOE. For me that was the best thing about this book…the character development. Chloe was a fallen society girl who tossed away her materialism in exchange for a better her. She goes from this spoiled, self-centered, rich girl to this humble, appreciative woman who knows who she is and also likes who she sees in the mirror. “When I looked back at that woman, I barely recognized myself. Cammie was right. I had changed. Everything in my life had changed.” –Chloe.
Book Boyfriend Material- 5 stars.
Carter…he was this hesitant and somewhat mysterious character and I loved how he fit into the storyline! Unbeknownst to him, he was a key component in helping guide Chloe in her self-discovery and because of that, he was the perfect match for her <3 “He wasn’t pure gentleman, not the silver spoon a**holes of my past. He had the fine edges, but was something more, stronger.–Chloe.
Writing Style/Steam Factor- 5 stars.
The buildup in the storyline was slow to unfold, but Alessandra Torre did a beautiful job of delivering a progressive masterpiece that kept the reader craving more of Chloe’s ever changing world.
Overall- 5 stars.
I’ve only had the pleasure of reading two of Alessandra Torre’s novels (HOLLYWOOD DIRT and LOVE, CHLOE), but I am rapidly discovering that I love her writing and her stories. Each book is completely unique and nothing like the last. Each character and plot development is written perfectly and leaves the reader wanting more! I would recommend LOVE, CHLOE to anyone that wants realism and something believable. LOVE, CHLOE was all those things and more. It was truly a heartfelt, soul-searching journey that leaves you totally in love with Chloe and her story.
OMG. OMG. OMG. Alessandra Torre did it again!! Love, Chloe is funny, charming, fabulous, sexy and heartwarming. There are so many things to love about this book i feel like I can’t name them all! Alessandra Torre’s writing is captivating and real. Another absolute fave this year.
First of, i didn’t get the chance to read Alessandra’s bedroom blog at cosmopolitan.com even tho I knew about it. Who knew about it and follow it up already met Chloe and knew it was gonna be turned into a standalone novel. So I don’t know what was actually better but all I know is that fans of Alessandra’s bedroom blog are going to fall in love with this story all over again and new readers will be captivated from page one. I couldn’t get enough of this book. In all it’s fabulousness there was so much beauty, so much love, so much reality, add amusement to all that and it was perfection. Every time I read something like this written by Alessandra is like a brand new breath of fresh air. This woman can write absolutely everything.
Rich girl gone poor, turned assistant of a devil, meets prince charming, and… meets her real self. That’s what I love most about the book. The wake up call life gave Chloe and she took it, one day at the time, learning from everything surrounding her, from everything she lost. This story is endearing and perfect. Is not at all typical, there are twist and turns the story takes, so is not boring, you won’t guess what happens right away you need keep reading to find out.
Swooning, laughter and sex. Sit down with a glass of wine and this book and enjoy the ride!
