Take a hint, Dani Brown

Danika does not want a relationship, she just likes to have casual sex with someone. Zaf is an ex-rugby player and loves to read romance novels and wants to have a relationship. He wants to have a relationship with Dani. Then one moment he ‘rescued’ Dani after a fire alarm drill and since that moment they went viral. Everyone on the internet is shipping them. And Zaf is getting more donations for his own charity ‘Tackle it’. So they decide to pretend they are in a relationship.


The other day, I read the first book of the Brown sister’s book series. The first one is called ‘Get a life, Chloe Brown’. If you have read my review, you will probably know that I was a little bit disappointed because everyone seemed to love that book and I liked it a little, but not as much as others seemed to like that book.

But I have to say that I did like this book a lot more than the first one. And I just started reading the last book ‘Act your age, Eve Brown’ and I can’t wait to find out if I will like that book too and to see which one will be my favourite book in this series.

I am not sure why I like this one more than the others. I didn’t have a lot of things in common with Chloe except we both want to start living again. Dani is a completely different person, very career-driven. Maybe that’s why I liked the book more. But then again, I don’t like one-night stands and Dani does. Maybe I liked this one more because it is a fake dating kind of book and maybe that is something I like to read about?

Although I really liked this book, I am still not sure if it gave me those happy feelings. I was just not feeling it. I just don’t feel the chemistry between the two characters. I am not sure if other readers will think the same way as I do, maybe they are feeling the chemistry between Zaf and Dani but I didn’t unfortunately. 

So far, I think this Brown sisters book series is a little bit overhyped for me. I’ve read better romance books. I like the idea though of having three different sisters and three books. In the first book you got to know Dani and Eve a little bit, then in the second Dani is looking for help from her sisters. I think that is pretty cool. So overall, I have mixed feelings about these books so far. But I have one more book (Act your age, Eve Brown) to go and maybe I will even like that book even more.




  1. That’s an interesting concept for a trilogy, writing about three different sisters – it’s a shame you weren’t a huge fan of the first two, perhaps the last one will be better!

  2. Love your honest review. It looks like you’re enjoying the books the more you read, so perhaps the third one will be the best out of the three!

  3. It’s a shame this didn’t work for you! I really enjoyed the trilogy as a whole, especially as they’re so diverse, Hibbert is great at representation and it’s rare to find in contemporary romance fiction like this. I hope the third is better for you.
