Act Your Age, Eve Brown follows Eve and Jacob. Eve wants to prove herself to her family, and show that she isn’t spoiled and that she can hold down a job and not give up. Enter Jacob, and his bed and breakfast. He’s desperate for a new cook, and when Eve just so happens to show up (and hit him with her car), he’s stuck hiring her.
Talia Hibberts writing style is fun and easy to get into. While it may not have been exactly my sense of humor, it was still lighthearted and entertaining. Also, the spice level in this book? Amazing.
The plot is simple and straightforward: two complete opposites are forced to work together, shenanigans ensue. But it shines in the additional layers it brings. Those layers being the characters themselves. Most of these layers are added by our two main characters. I love them so much.
Speaking of the characters: I love them so much. They’re realistic and grounded while still being entertaining to read about, and they have the best banter. One thing I especially loved about them, and this book as a whole, was the autism rep. It inspired me to finally start the process of getting my own diagnosis. Honestly, Talia Hibbert is the queen of including good representation in her books. I seriously have never been disappointed.
Pros- Great representation, adorable romance, addictive
Cons- This series was my one constant source of serotonin and now that it’s over I don’t know what to do
Overall- 5/5 stars.
If you’re looking for a captivating romance that you won’t be able to put down, you need to pick up Act Your Age, Eve Brown.
