Act YourAge, Eve Brown| Talia Hibbert | Avon Books | Pub: 3/9/21

“I will always be grateful for the things you’ve done for me. For the privileges and safety nets you’ve afforded me, for the ways you’ve supported me when I didn’t know who I was, even for pushing me to get a grip and make a change. I’m trying my best to make you proud, and I always will. But I’m not like the rest of this family, as much as I love you all. I’m a different person and I need different things and I work in a different way, and that’s okay.”

Act Your Age, Eve Brown is the third Brown book. In it, Eve is ambushed by her parents to grow up. She’s never kept a job for a long period of time, she still lives at home and just lives off the money in the trust. Eve flees her parents’ home and stumbles upon a job opportunity where she meets Jacob, and they have a ROCKY start.

Will this job finally be the job Eve loves and keeps? Or will she be scared of failing and run?

This book is tied for my favorite in the series with Chloe. With Chloe, I related in that I have fibromyalgia and anxiety, and everyone always left when things got to difficult for me. I relate to Eve in that I don’t know what I want to do with my life and that I don’t actually feel like some of my friends want me in their lives, it’s more of a they feel obligated thing. I just didn’t relate to Dani at all so her book just wasn’t for me but, I highly recommend this series.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

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.
