Act Your Age, Eve Brown (The Brown Sisters #3) by Talia Hibbert

Blurb: 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.

Review: Just like Talia Hibbert to save the best for last. If you thought the first two books in this series were amazing then you are seriously going to lose it for this one. You can read my reviews for Get a Life, Chloe Brown and Take a Hint, Dani Brown by clicking their respective titles.

Moving on... Act Your Age, Eve Brown has absolutely everything.

It has: the grumpy/sunshine trope (oh my fucking God, yes, pour it straight down my mouth), a hero with autism who isn't just discovering said autism, it has a heroine discovering her own differently abled-ness, it has body-positivity, it has the blissful use of sex toys and not just alone but as a couple, it has quirky side characters, it has a charming bed and breakfast setting, and it has so much banter your head will literally spin with pure bliss.

Not sold yet? Give me a moment.

I almost never highlight quotes in my Kindle because by the time I've realized I liked the sound of something I've already moved on and I simply cannot move backwards. But I highlighted the ever-loving shit out of my Kindle. And then I texted those quotes to people who don't have an ARC because I'm a monster who loves teasing people endlessly. And I giggled madly to myself on my bed and even thought about reading some of it aloud to my husband (I only thought about doing this, but I decided against it because my husband doesn't understand romance novels and his lackluster response would have harshed my vibe).

Act Your Age, Eve Brown was sweet and beautiful and touching and sexy beyond belief. Jacob, our adorably difficult hero, and Eve, our scatter-brained heroine, were a perfectly matched pair who balanced one another's idiosyncrasies in the best ways! Two powerful personalities clashing for control--chaos and control--as they work toward the same goal: make Castell Cottage the best damn Bed and Breakfast the world has ever seen.

Act Your Age, Eve Brown literally cannot disappoint.
