Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert
Brown Sisters #3
Romantic Comedy, Enemies to Lovers
Steam Level: Turning the Heat Up
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 the third and final installment in the Brown Sisters series by Talia Hibbert. I loved to Get a Life, Chloe Brown and Take a Hint, Dani Brown. And I am happy to report Act Your Age, Eve Brown is just as wonderful as the first two.
I have to admit, at the beginning of the book, Eve annoyed me a little. She was a little too flighty for me. But Eve quickly proved herself as a wonderful character, especially when interacting with Jacob. I admired how Eve seemed so unflappable, even though we know internally she was dealing with a lot of fears. I appreciate that both Eve and Jacob were both on the autism spectrum. Not just for the added diversity, but they were also very honest with each other. Something that does not often happen in romance.
To me, Eve’s story was the most engaging of the Brown sisters. Not only was this about opening up to the romance, but about Eve finding herself. I loved seeing her interactions with Jacob; the way they spoke to each other was very entertaining. This was a wonderful read, and I have to admit I am sad to see the Brown Sisters’ stories come to an end.
