Rating: FOUR STARS
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.
I love The Brown Sister series and I love all the characters. The Brown Sister series is really a beautiful and funny series and I’m glad that I decided to read all three books. You can read my review of Take a Hint, Dani Brown.
“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.”
Act Your Age, Eve Brown is the last book in the series and it’s about Eve Brown, a young woman who is trying to find what to do with her professional life and with her life. She had many bad experiences in her professional life and now she gave up trying to find the perfect career. Until her parents forced her to keep a job at least a year, so Eve brown to prove to her parents that she is capable to keep a job a year, she left her home and she arrived at the bed and breakfast, at Jacob Wayne where she did an interview for his open position of the chef.
Jacob Wayne wants to succeed in the hospitality industry and for that he needs perfection and he tells Eve no because she seems chaotic. She hits Jacob with her car by accident and now he needs
her help and he hire her.
“What if I’d killed somebody?”
“I wouldn’t be surprised, and I would visit you in prison if necessary.”
She gasped, all feigned outrage. “You wouldn’t offer to help me hide the body?”
Jacob’s lips quirked without permission. “You’ve been here quite a while Sunshine, and there’s no police sniffing around, so I imagine you hid it just fine yourself.”
Jacob Wayne hates chaos and supposedly a Eve because she seems chaotic. But after he spent time with Eve, he realized that she is funny, sarcastic, always trying to take care of the people around her and she is the perfect mess for him.
“You’re not just my sunshine; you’re the sun.”
I loved the banter between Jacob and Eve, I loved the sweet moments between them and their relationship. I loved to sees Eve grow and to see her find her perfect job and to see her grow as a person. I loved The Sisters Brown and I recommend to everyone this beautiful series. I will miss this beautiful family.
