Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, so you know that book that you’ve built up in your head and have super high expectations for and then when you finally get to read it, it falls flat? Yeah, this was not that book! Happy squeeeeeeeaaaals!

Act Your Age, Eve Brown was clever, funny, sexy, and downright adorable. Eve and Jacob were so perfectly opposite, the yin to each other’s yang, the ultimate grumpy one loves the sunshiny one. Even if at first Eve can’t stand her uptight disapproving new boss (who she may have, possibly, maybe, hit with her car) and Jacob thinks Eve is flighty, immature, and bound to fail. But as they spend more time together, Eve and Jacob discover that people are not always what they seem at first and sometimes passion lies in the most unexpected of places.

I literally cannot explain how much I loved this book and how fucking perfect Eve and Jacob are. Also, yay for autistic romance, forced proximity, enemies-to-lovers (I have to work with this person I can stand but who seems to get me better than anyone else – what is THAT about??), slow thaws, pining, and so much reassurance porn (because they both see the best in each and will hear absolutely NONE of it omgggg)! Plus the true nature of ducks and geese are exposed as the evil interlopers that they are.

And do you think that just because Jacob is grumpy fuck that he’s not the biggest cinnamon roll? NOPE. That man is soft, soft, gooey soft. And the way he loves Eve so intensely and is afraid that he’s going to be too much for her (in more ways than one 😏). UGH. No. Not fair. It’s too good.

This was THE best ending to the Brown sister series and I am SO excited that we’re going to get to return to Skybriar in Talia’s next (Austen-inspired!) series with Avon!!

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
