Talia Hibbert’s work pulls me out of my funk. This is the lighthearted and sexy read that I needed with what all that’s going on. Eve’s story of not feeling good enough and fearing failure resonated with me. Not everyone experience their coming of age once in their late teens. Some go thru it again and again, so I’m glad that Eve learned so much of herself, found a career and her person that she loves. 

Btw my first Talia Hibbert book was Dani Brown, which makes this the second Brown sister book that I’ve read. Can’t wait to read Chloe Brown! And lastly, I wonder if Talia would write about Gigi and Shivani’s elderly lesbian/pansexual palace - I’d definitely love to read that!

I knew I would love this book when I read the first couple chapters at the end of Dani Brown, and it did not disappoint. This book was excellently written and wonderfully affirming. I highly recommend it.

Thank you to Hear Our Voices Tours and Avon Books for the arc of this book!

Eve Brown feels like she is constantly a disappointment to those around her--not as smart or driven as her sisters, she can't choose a career, and she still lives at home.  When her parents have a fight with her about committing to a job, Eve drives away to clear her head--and falls into a perfect opportunity to prove she can be mature on her own. 

Meanwhile, Jacob is in desperate need of a new chef at his B & B, but he's very particular about who can do it, when Eve crashes (literally) into his life.

This book! This. Book! I don't think it could have been more adorable. I really don't think it would be possible. Talia Hibbert has truly blown me away with all three books in the Brown Sisters romance trilogy!

This book shows that no matter how many times the world tries to shove you down for being "not normal," you can get back up and find your person, your place, your time. You don't have to have everything figured out when you're young (a reminder that I seem to be needing more and more as I start to admit that I'm actually an adult now) and you don't have to be society's version of perfect to be the perfect you.

This book gives me heart eyes.

The writing is phenomenal, sexy, funny, relatable. The characters are so well-developed and easy to love. The plot is cute and meaningful. It was everything I needed.

This book comes out on March 9, 2021.
