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.
I *might* have liked Eve’s story the best? Maybe? Or maybe it’s just that I read it last and so she has the greater share of my sympathy…but really, GAH! this book just killed me with its cuteness and love. Though I do have to say that after two books of her sister correcting all of her mis-used words (which, okay, were pretty funny at the time) it was lovely that Jacob just took them in stride. Just like Jacob (eventually, once her existence, purple hair, and loud t-shirts stopped freaking him out) too her in stride. As Eve took all of Jacob’s so-called “differences” in stride. Obviously, these two were made for each other…and it didn’t take them too long to figure it out, either.
Just the perfect amount of reading-a-Talia Hibbert-book time 😉
I am so, so sad that this is the last of the Brown sisters–but am 100% looking forward to whatever Ms Tibbert has in store for us next! I cannot wait <3
I listened to the audiobook version, and the narrator did a lovely job of reading this one. If you’re an audiobook reader, I definitely recommend–the authentic British accent really adds to the reading experience 🙂
