✪ Working For It (Cook Brothers #5) ✪ BJ Harvey ✪

It started one night in Vegas over a naughty cocktail and dirty banter. Eight months of bedded bliss later, Gilly Nelson says the two words Ezra Baker never saw coming:

“I’m pregnant.”

Twice-divorced Ezra has always acted first, thought it through later. Except in Gilly he finds an equal; a strong-willed, independent woman who doesn’t need his money or kind heart to get ahead. She just wants him.

Career-focused Gilly never imagined she’d be thirty-five, single and pregnant. Except when Ezra suggests they date rather than just mate, she finds herself wondering whether the man she’s been looking for has been in her bed all along.

If they can survive raging hormones, house renovations, and the realities of childbirth, surely creating a family will be a walk in the park...right?

Working For It is a full-length house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is the fifth and final book in the Cook Brothers series. Working For It is Ezra Baker's story.

ARC received from author for an honest revew

Ezra is the man I have been waiting for.  And his and Gilly's story is all I could have hoped for.

This is the final book in the series, and even though it could be read as a standalone, you will miss a lot of the nuances of relationships of you don't read the previous books.

Ezra and Gilly's book begins with a bang and definitely does not go out with a whimper!

I knew that they would be amazing together, it was just a case of how their story would unfold.

Ez is definitely made of boyfriend material. I love the way he is all in, all the time.  He has his woman's back, would do anything for his family. He had me cheering big time.

One thing though - and I am sure this is just a me thing and won't bother anyone else - I got annoyed with Ezra calling Gilly "baby mama" all the time.  I could understand sometimes, but it was nearly every time he talked to her.  It made me grind me teeth by the end of things - but again. this is just a me thing.

I think this was the perfect ending to this series - though I wouldn't say not to some novellas down the track.

Thank you Ms Harvey for giving us the Cooks.
