I think I may be a little bit dead. This book quite literally suffocated me with a pillow of happiness and love. In my deceased state, I am thoroughly incapable of doing the words for good sentences, so have a list of reasons why Act Your Age, Eve Brown was delightful, lovely, and all-around wonderful instead:

-it's cute as fuck

In Act Your Age Eve Brown, we follow the titular Eve Brown, a spoiled and perhaps maladjusted 26 year old seeking to prove how grown up she can be by getting and keeping a job without her family's help. Everything's going great until she accidently mows her would-be employer -Jacob- down with her car and things progress from there. To atone for the accident Eve has agreed to help Jacob run his B&B while he recovers from

I went into this one knowing that I was going to love it, but I truly did not expect to fall for Eve and Jacob as hard as I did. There were multiple times that I found myself smiling and giggling while reading their banter and honestly their chemistry leapt off of every single page. I'm so sad that this book marks the end of the Brown Sisters trilogy but I am SO GLAD that it ended on such a high note and I honestly think that Jacob might even be my favorite of all three of the heroes.

OKAY THIS WAS TOO CUTE AND NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW THAT THIS IS OVER. I flew through this book in two days and could not get enough of Eve and Jacob.

While reading this book, I could not get over how messy, endearing, and adorable both Eve and Jacob were. Eve is kicked out by her parents and she is cut off until she supports herself and holds down a job for a year. Eve stumbles upon a job listing for a chef position at a B&B and Jacob is instantly put off by Eve. They definitely

This series is such a delight. I have greatly enjoyed every book in The Brown Sisters, and this one is no different. One of the things I love about the series (besides the awesome variety of representation in each book) is how conflict is resolved fairly quickly but also realistically. In this book, we also have two characters who are both on the autism spectrum. It was so interesting to see how these two neurodivergent people related to one another on a diffe
This is a Contemporary Romance, and this is the third book in the Brown Sisters. I have to say this is my favorite one, and the other two was so good.

Of course, I loved this. There’s no other way this could’ve gone. A 4-star rating would’ve been a disaster but disaster has been averted because my gut is always right (when my anxiety isn’t having a field day with it, that is). And Talia Hibbert can fuckin’ write!

Here we meet Eve Brown. She makes terrible choices and it’s said terrible choices that lead her to not have access to her trust fund till she starts acting her age and shows responsibility. So she sets off to go just do that.

This series has been such a fun time! I just love that all those sisters are so relatable and so freakin charming. Like seriously how is it possible that the three sisters are just so relatable??

Eve and Jacob have one of the best grumpy/sunshine dynamics! I loved how Eve was getting on his nerves and how he was fighting his attraction (or trying to). I loved the fact that Eve hit Jacob by her car! I loved their banter, their hilarious dialogues, their over-sweet moments, and their serious conve

Absolutely joyful. Eve is a force of chaos and a bit of a mess with a habit of running away; Jacob is all order and control with a lifetime of people running away from him. They're obviously perfect. Deep kindness (especially about human flaws and quirks) without sentimentality, terrific snark, great one-liners, swoony and hot romance, assured writing and a cast that's diverse because humans are diverse. A terrific conclusion to an excellent series; I enjoyed this overwhelmingly.

Talia Hibbert writes her best book yet with the third book in The Brown Sisters series, Act Your Age, Eve Brown. Moving, interesting, and incredibly sexy, Talia Hibbert nailed every aspect of this story.

I'm a big fan of Talia Hibbert's work, and I've enjoyed all of the books in The Brown Sisters series, but seriously, none of them hold a candle to Act Your Age, Eve Brown.

I was extremely excited to read this story because I love books with neurodiverse main characters. I'm really drawn to them,

4.5 stars: I was between 4 and 4.5 stars, but frankly, the degree to which this lightened my spirits on a high pain/anxiety day tipped me towards the extra half star. This book was just SO CHARMING and SO JOYFUL. I absolutely loved the main characters and the banter between them, but more than anything, this is one of the only successful screwball comedies I've encountered in book form. This book is (IMO- humor is so subjective) genuinely funny, and even more than the romance going on, I just en ...more

The Brown Sisters series has been such a bright light in an overall bad (reading) year and I'm so happy that I've discovered it. While Take a Hint, Dani Brown is still my favorite, Act Your Age, Eve Brown is a very cute conclusion to this series. If you loved the other books in this series, this book won't disappoint you.

I mean, is anyone surprised that this was a delight? Nope. Because I don't think Hibbert can do any wrong. And The Brown Sisters series has been truly wonderful and I'm pretty sad it's over. But.. might there be hope of a spinoff? With the Montroses? Pretty please?

The bad news: Act Your Age, Eve Brown marks the end of the Brown Sisters trilogy.

The good news: Talia Hibbert ended things on a HIGH AF note because she continues to bless us every single damn day.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown, the second book in this series, was always going to be a tough act to follow, but I think Eve Brown's story somehow did it. Hibbert is truly a queen, legend, and icon when it comes to snappy dialogue and crisp banter, and the agitation and long-simmering tension between Eve and

I'm kicking myself for not jumping into this series sooner as I really enjoyed this third book. Great humor, interesting characters, and steamy chemistry between the two leads. I will definitely go back and read the first two novels featuring Eve's sisters. For those of you who have read the other books, I'm sure you will be glad to know Eve's family does pop up here and there in this one.

This book was an absolute gem! The Brown Sisters is such a fun and quirky series, but I think that Talia Hibbert saved the best for last with Eve Brown, and that's saying a whole lot.

Eve Brown can't commit. She goes from one failed job to the next and her only safety net is her chunky trust fund. That is until her parents cut her off until she can find and keep a stable job for one entire year.

Talia Hibbert is one of those authors that I know I will love. The recent books of hers that I’ve read have been so consistently amazing, I’m not sure I could imagine a scenario in which I didn’t love one of her books. Act Your Age, Eve Brown fully follows in that trend.

The book follows the youngest, and flightiest — according to her family, Brown sister, Eve. When Eve gets into an argument with
