Have you ever started a book, and just known from the beginning that this was going to be a new favorite? Because that’s what happened with me and this book. I read Get a Life, Chloe Brown in the beginning of the year, and immediately added Take a Hint, Dani Brown to my TBR without even reading the synopsis. I loved Chloe Brown enough that just by seeing the cover of Dani Brown I was sure I was going to love it. And I was right! Many Americans—maybe the majority of us—think of England as looking more like the Queen than like Danika and Chloe Brown and their relatives: people like you, who are English via the Caribbean, via South Asia, via Africa, other places. And we know that the UK is more than 85% white. But especially in big cities, there is a lot more diversity. Are you hoping to correct our view of a monochromatic England? Idris Elba aside, isn't this something we should have caught up with a long time ago?

Many thanks to Jessica Lyons @ HarperCollins and Edelweiss for my digital ARC, in exchange for an honest review! So much thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins Publishers/Avon for sharing my most anticipated romance book’s ARC with me in exchange my honest review.

I hope the hint Dani Brown is taking is to stay far away from this review, because I do not, unfortunately, have many nice things to say. Theres also this wonderful conversation about the difference between changing yourself for someone else and someone encouraging you to grow and become a better version of yourself. This is such an important distinction and I was so glad to see it discussed in a romance book, where many times the characters feel the need to change themselves to be with their love interest, which should not be the case! She detected a faint note of wonder in his voice that made her want to squish his cheeks and kiss his forehead. Fortunately, he wasn't in the room, so she was saved from the horror of actually following that impulse.

Reread and I can’t even tell you how happy this book, this series makes me. All thanks to Talia Hibbert and her wonderfully engaging characters that shine through her writing. Danika Brown, a clever, witty workaholic doesn't do romance, she's too focussed on her academic career, and has been burnt in the past. She just wants a friends with benefits type situation. When her sexy friend Zafir Ansari, a sensitive, brooding, romantic former rugby player rescues her from a disastrous fire drill, it goes viral, and they embark on a fake relationship to boost Zafir's rugby charity. Will their plan work? Or will it lead to more?! Dani Brown is an extremely intelligent, goal focused and hard working what Dani is no good at is relationships. During a fire drill Dani gets trapped in a lift and is rescued by Zafir (Zaf) her work colleague and good friend. She sees his rescue as a sign from the universe that they should be friends with benefits and then a video of Zaf rescuing Dani becomes viral they strike up a deal.Talia Hibbert did it again and wrote another fantastic Brown Sisters’ book. But this is also tormenting experience because we need to wait for one year to read the third one! Zaf’s palms slid up over her rounded belly, and then his thumbs caressed the sensitive undersides of her breasts. I think especially in British literature, it's quite a humorous convention to have this very posh, very well-off family that's disconnected from the world in a humorous way. Overall, Take a Hint, Dani Brown is an awesome addition to The Brown Sisters series. If youre a fan of the friends-to-lovers and fake relationship tropes, as well as diverse romance that sits on the steamier side, this is the book for you.

As an academician she is really workaholic and she doesn’t do relationships because she tells everyone it is a distraction to prevent her keep eye on the ball and work for her career oriented aims. But of course she keeps lying to herself because her first serious relationship broke her heart into smithereens and she thinks she’s emotionally cold and awkward so she doesn’t have anything to give anyone and she cannot change her emotionally disabled situation. For someone who’s very familiar w those words in her romances, this one actually got me blushing and shoOk yallll😳 i guess i just didn’t expect such carnal words to be used in here lol. Especially from our soft boi, Zaf. This book was a cute read. There was something missing for me but ultimately did enjoy it. The author is talented, I'm just not sure I'm a fan of the situationship turned relationship because rarely do situationships ever end in monogamous relationships. As well as being super hot of course, Take a Hint, Dani Brown was also hilarious. Talia Hibbert has this impeccable talent of writing romance that goes from super steamy to laugh out loud in the same paragraph. Eighteen-year-old Mallory Greenleaf is no longer interested in chess, not since her hypercompetitive dad left—the game calls up painful memories. But she grudgingly agrees to play in a charity tournament as a favor to best friend Easton Peña. After she unexpectedly beats current world champion Nolan Sawyer, she’s offered a fellowship that will prepare her to play professionally. Even though Mallory doesn’t want to play anymore, she needs the money that winning would provide; she’s delayed college to support her family, since her mother is chronically ill with rheumatoid arthritis and is unable to work regularly. The more time she spends with Nolan, the more Mallory comes to like and respect him—and the more time she spends playing chess, the more she remembers how much she loved it. But when she learns that Nolan has been keeping a big secret from her, she isn’t sure if she’ll be able to move past it to build a relationship with him. Filled with the author’s signature humor, well-developed characters, and realistic conflicts, plus the fully realized setting of competitive chess, this captivating romance will delight teen readers as well as Hazelwood’s adult fans. Mallory and Nolan are both cued white; there is some racial diversity among the supporting cast. Mallory and Easton are queer.

This is me attempting to start out this review in a Fun Way, in the hopes that so much as one moment of my experience with this book can be Fun, because reading it was...not.

And what's with all the men reading romance in books at the moment?! Its like some trend, I've seen three books with it in now 😂 Is it not enough that Zaf is the perfect man, helping at risks kids deal with their emotions and with toxic masculinity?! *Swoons* Can a bearded, romance-reading, retired rugby pro convince a Type A grad student to make room for love? Except for that thing when you take a big bite of what you think is an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie (one of the best kinds) and instead you are dealt the killing blow of an unexpected raisin. Dani is interested in Zaf. Interested in sleeping with him. But with time, she sees he makes her happy, makes her life easier, and never makes her feel bad for being busy with work and school. Zaf is super supportive and the sweetest hero ever. I couldn't have loved him more. I also liked Dani's character a lot. She knew what she wanted and I can always appreciate that.Major or minor, if something keeps you human when pressure makes you feel like a volcano, hold on to that thing by whatever means necessary." I honestly don’t know how to comment on this bc i know not all muslims share the same opinion on certain subjects and we don’t necessarily practice the same thing bc of diff cultures and all, buuut i’m sure we can all unanimously agree on what’s ‘haram’ and what’s not. (at least the basics, right?¿) Ill forever be a fan of Talia Hibberts writing. The way she portrays thought, emotion and awareness always makes her books so compelling! Its difficult not to become wrapped in the lives of these characters because theyre so well-layered and refined. The drama, which occurs in almost every contemporary romance, is very believable. And I think the main reason is because the nature and traits of the characters are so well-developed, theres little for the reader to question. As I saw the events unfold I thought, Yep, thats exactly how Dani would react. Components like this make even the conflict a gratifying reading experience.
