Publisher: Harper Collins
In Act Your Age, Eve Brown the flightiest Brown sister crashes into the life of an uptight B&B owner and has him falling hard—literally.
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 is a hilarious contemporary romance featuring a grumpy hero and a hot mess of a heroine. Their personalities are so different and like oil and water but as the story goes on we see how opposites really do attract. I love reading Talia Hibbert and this is my favorite so far in ‘The Brown Sisters series’.
Eve Brown is a hot mess. She hasn’t found her true passion and her parents want to see her stick to something. Eve doesn’t want to let anyone down so she applies to be the chef at a bed and breakfast. I love that she is so upfront and says what’s on her mind. Her interview doesn’t go well especially after she runs over the man who could be her boss, Jacob Wayne. Jacob is always in charge. He likes to be prepared for anything. When Eve walks into his office for an interview, he knows he does not want her to be his chef. But things change when he ends up with broken bones and a cast. So, looks like Eve did in fact get the job!!
I like that these two characters are so opposite. That just adds to their chemistry and attraction. Together they provide the most hilarious scenes that you can’t help but laugh at. You would never expect these two to be attracted to one another, but as time goes on readers won’t be able to deny the sparks.
I give Act Your Age, Eve Brown 5 stars. I always love that Talia Hibbert represents people of color because it is so amazing to read a story that you can picture the character looking like you or someone close to you. This is a must-read for those who love opposites attract books. The chemistry will be unexpected, the humor will have you rolling on the floor laughing, and the growth of the characters will give you hope that you too can and will find your passion in life.
