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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We love how all of the heroines of Talia Hibbert’s romantic comedies starring the Brown sisters are so different. Take Eve Brown, who can’t commit to a career any more than she can to a relationship. After a disastrous job interview for the chef position at a posh B&B, she runs into uptight innkeeper Jacob Wayne again. With her car. It’s a pretty silly opposites-attract setup, but it works because Hibbert always respects her characters and audience. Freewheeling Eve and perfectionist Jacob are both on the autism spectrum, a story element that Hibbert handles sensitively while simultaneously providing us with zany comedy and scorching, body-positive romance. Narrator Ione Butler’s voice provides the perfect blend of cheeky and sensual for each step of these quirky characters’ journey together. Eve is the youngest of the three Brown sisters, but we’re hoping Hibbert decides to extend this entertaining series beyond their immediate family—we’d love to hear what their aunties are up to.
