Publisher's Summary

In USA Today best-selling author Talia Hibbert’s newest rom-com, the flightiest Brown sister crashes into the life of an uptight B&B owner and has him falling hard - literally.

One of PopSugar's 42 Books Everyone Will Be Talking About in 2021 and Oprah Mag's Most Anticipated Romances of 2021!

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.

In search of self and finding more! 🙌🏿😍

Another brilliant story about the Brown's sisters by Talia! I was not ready for all that these two offered! Jacob and Eve were hilarious, swoony, emotional and all the steam of attraction!

Ione Butler was amazing with the narration! She brought this story to life.

Their banter was everything but so were their ability to wear their love and affection out loud. I loved these too.

I respect Hibbert's work, but it's not for me

This is the third book I downloaded and heard on Audible by this author. I found the bantering between the couple humorous and I enjoyed the character, Eve, out of the other two heroines Id read in Hibbert's other books I read. But I still find my mind wandering with the ramblings and recollections that went on in this book. There wasn't enough action and sequence of events going on in this to keep me fully entertained. I wish that I liked this more than I do, but this style of storytelling doesn't grab my attention for the majority of the time. What's funny is that I felt the opposite about Hibbert's other book, "Wanna Bet"; while I didn't really care for the characters in that book, the writing went along to where I was able to stay engaged with the story.

Didn’t anticipate the obsession with blunt sex references

I picked this up after all the reviews and Oprah’s recommendation, but this is apparently my first rom-com. I wasn’t anticipating a harlequin novel, but I’d compare it to that.

I really liked every single character Hanberg creates, and I loved the first third when Eve and Jacob first interact.

I lost interest when the book became a constant narrated-character-thought plot of “does she/he want me / I want to jump her/him”.

It’s a lovely book for its genre, and Hibbert is creative, sensitive, and a lovely writer. It just isn’t the genre for me.

Narration: superb!

A Happy, Quirky Accident

Normally I hate romance, but this one hit all the right notes. Engaging, detailed narration. 10/10

How can this be even better!

Is it possible this book could be even better than the first two!? I’m going to have to re listen to all three books back to back now. This book was an absolute joy.

Talía never disappoints!

I adore these characters so much it hurts! Eve is a lovable, well-meaning, bit of a mess (at times), who is struggling to figure out how to adult successfully. Jacob is a thundercloud of a misunderstood man with a gigantic unicorn heart that has been bruised in the past. Their story is one of unexpected friendship after immediate disdain that ultimately develops into mutual respect and love. I am always a fan of Talia’s neurodiverse characters and, as usual, she has done an amazing job expressing differences in people who are similar in so many other ways. I appreciated the cameos from the rest of the Brown family (and extended family) and I’m sad to think this is the last book we will get from this world. Hopefully we get a spin-off series with Mont and his sisters (fingers crossed) 😊.

Loved every single thing in this book !

There is nothing I didn't love about this book. Talia does it again. Ione Butler also does an amazing job narrating. She is interesting and emoting through the words, not like some narrators who are merely, unenthusiastically reading the words.

Take all my money

Talia Hubert has moved into the “buy instantly, no questions asked” territory for me. No matter how many romance or rom-com books I read or listen to, I always get a swoop feeling when I read Hibbert.

Eve and Jacob are adorable and really worked for me as a couple. I am also a sucker for really balanced conflict and resolution and healthy communication. The banter was cute, realistic, and helped connect them.

I only wish Eve had told off that one “friend” as well at the end.

Kinda boring?

I’ve loved the rest of this series, but this one doesn’t have the same heart to it.
