Act Your Age, Eve Brown
I’ve officially read about all of the Brown Sisters!
“Eve Brown is a certified hot mess. No matter how hard she strives to do right, her life always goes horribly wrong—so she’s given up trying. But when her personal brand of chaos ruins an expensive wedding (someone had to liberate those poor doves), her parents draw the line. It’s time for Eve to grow up and prove herself—even though she’s not entirely sure how…
Jacob Wayne is in control. Always. The bed and breakfast owner’s on a mission to dominate the hospitality industry—and he expects nothing less than perfection. So when a purple-haired tornado of a woman turns up out of the blue to interview for his open chef position, he tells her the brutal truth: not a chance in hell. Then she hits him with her car—supposedly by accident. Yeah, right.
Now his arm is broken, his B&B is understaffed, and the dangerously unpredictable Eve is fluttering around, trying to help. Before long, she’s infiltrated his work, his kitchen—and his spare bedroom. Jacob hates everything about it. Or rather, he should. Sunny, chaotic Eve is his natural-born nemesis, but the longer these two enemies spend in close quarters, the more their animosity turns into something else. Like Eve, the heat between them is impossible to ignore—and it’s melting Jacob’s frosty exterior.”

Act your Age, Eve Brown — LOVED.
Out of all three of the Brown Sisters, I found that Eve was the one who reminded me of me. At her age, I remember not knowing what direction I was going but just that my current situation wasn’t working for me. I tried and failed numerous times to find my footing. I, also, may have struggled to act my age on more occasions than I care to admit.
There was just something so refreshing about Eve. She was the main character that I needed to read about. I connected with her in multiple ways but I love how much she enjoyed cooking. Baking is my jam. Cooking is meh on some occasions so I admired how she could just go into the kitchen and whip things up without giving it much thought.
Then when you add in Jacob. He was such a unique character that I found to be completely alluring – he had his issues but I loved the way his interactions were described with Eve. It was fun, as a reader, to watch them fall for one another because it started with their first encounter.
If you haven’t had a chance to read about the Brown Sisters, you don’t have to read them in order but I think you get more of a backstory if you do it that way.
I can’t wait to see what Talia Hibbert writes next. Thank you, Avon Books, for my gifted copy. Act Your Age, Eve Brown is out today and can be ordered, following this link.
