I’m so thrilled to have the author of Technically, You Started It, Lana Wood Johnson, here on my blog for an interview. Her book sounds absolutely incredible. It’s a texting love story, it has a demisexual MC, and it’s case of enemies-to-lovers and mistaken identity! I can’t wait to read it and it was awesome to get a chance to talk with the author!

I recently saw a post that was about when they start thinking about what rating to give a book. It got me thinking about when I decide and how I review and how I might read books differently now that I review them. I don’t know if it’s changed drastically, but I thought it would be cool to talk about.
Oh, this is such an interesting prompt. It really depends on my mood how I feel about people touching certain books. And when I say people, I’m really talking about my mom because she’s the only one who would want to touch them haha. But, I do let some of my friends borrow some books sometimes! I’m not sure if I have any that are completely off limits to everybody, but who knows.
Would you look at that, I’m doing a tag where I was actually tagged. I was tagged by the wonderful Tiffany @ ReadByTiffany (she is amazing, highly recommend checking out everything she does). I love breakfast foods in general, but pancakes are always awesome, so this seems like a great tag to do! This tag was orginally created by BlogsOfABookaholic! They also created the graphics for this tag!
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamourous family’s mansion. The next items? Enjoy a drunken night out. Ride a motorcycle. Go camping. Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex. Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage. And… do something bad. But it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job. Redford ‘Red’ Morgan is a handyman with tattoos, a motorcycle, and more sex appeal than ten-thousand Hollywood heartthrobs. He’s also an artist who paints at night and hides his work in the light of day, which Chloe knows because she spies on him occasionally. Just the teeniest, tiniest bit. But when she enlists Red in her mission to rebel, she learns things about him that no spy session could teach her. Like why he clearly resents Chloe’s wealthy background. And why he never shows his art to anyone. And what really lies beneath his rough exterior…
This is such a special book to me. Thank you so much to Avon for giving me the e-ARC, I’m so happy to have read it! I knew I wanted to read this book. I share a name with the main character, which is cool in of itself, but the Chloe is also plus sized, has chronic pain, and she gets cat. I’ve dealt with chronic pain, I’m plus sized, and I adore cats. It was so cool to see a main character that was like me in so many ways. Trigger warnings: aftermath of an abusive relationship, mentions of an abusive relationship (there is a warning in the beginning of the ARC I read and I assume it’s going to be in the final copy as well, which I appreciate so much)
