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
-like, I was a smiling mess the whole time

Talia Hibbert remains consistent with writing cute and funny stories that have endearing lead characters. Out of the three books in this series, this was definitely the most amusing thanks to all the banter and the sunshine/grumpy dynamic. She also continues to take care in expanding the leads’ vulnerabilities and internal struggles so that they're unique individually. I liked that both leads here are autistic, and we see how that plays into their interactions with each other. Despite their seem ...more

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.

SUCH a cute cover, excited for this one
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.

Honestly, Talia Hibbert is one of my favorite authors writing today. Her books are so much fun and so good and so cute and SO steamy and just . . . I love them. Act Your Age, Eve Brown is the third in the Brown Sisters series. Get a Life, Chloe Brown and Take a Hint, Dani Brown are both hits. You don’t have to read one to read the others but reading them all is such a treasure.
This series is adorable. Take a Hint Dani Brown was one of my top favorite romances of last year, and I was so excited to follow along in this series with another Brown sister!

I will say, I don't think I enjoyed this one quite as much as the other two. I think this might be because I decided to listen to this one on audio as opposed to reading it physically, and I really despise listening to sex scenes on audio, so this is probably a 'me' thing, but this book had soooo much smut in it, I can't

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 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

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. This one was funny and the characters found the person they needed at that time. I love the Autism in this book, and I love this book shows that autism is very different from girls and boys. I have an Autistic daughter and son. I think Eve is my favorite Brown sister. I am sad to see that this is the last Brown sisters book. Of course the characte ...more
A very cute, steamy and uplifting end to 'The Brown Sisters' series

Eve Brown, the baby of the family bounces from job to job, living at home and relying on her family trust fund until her parents finally have enough! They give her an ultimatum, stick at a job for a year and find your own place, or no money. After stumbling across a cute B&B with a vacancy, where the boss is both hot and annoyingly grumpy, hilarious antics ensue, but will Eve sort her life out?!

The heat is on!

Eve has watched her sisters Dani and Chloe become successful in their professional lives as well as in love. But Eve can’t seem to get herself going. Failing at most everything she tries. Nothing seems to fit for her.

Her parents finally give her an ultimatum. She needs to venture out and find a job and live on her own or they will cut her off financially.

Ok! It’s time for Eve to start living! While taking a drive she comes across a B&B in need of a new chef. Well, Eve loves

I think Talia Hibbert might be my new favorite contemporary romance author. I don't read a whole lot of this specific genre, but I probably would if they were all more like hers! They are funny, emotional, relatable, her characters have diverse representations that are presented as just one small part of the person (just like a real person would be!) without feeling like it's a checkmark representation, and most importantly the romance is steamy. I'm just kidding about that being the most import ...more

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 concludes her Brown Sisters rom-com trilogy, after Chloe and Dani, with the sunny chaotic Eve, so different from her sisters, this is my belated Valentine's read, and I know the author will give us plenty of humour, fun, diverse steamy relationships, not to mention a serious focus on issues, here it is autism.

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,

“I told you before, that there are different ways to fail. Imperfection is inevitable. That’s life. But it doesn’t sound to me like you failed at all, Eve. It sounds like your dream broke, and you’ve been picking up shattered pieces, and blaming yourself when your hands bleed.”

Talia Hibbert owns my heart and soul. She crafts such authentic, heartwarming characters that feel like friends to me.

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.

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
