Review: Work in Progress by BJ Harvey

Author: BJ Harvey

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Publication Date: May 22, 2019

Jamie Cook is a work-in-progress. He’s always wanted what his parents have: a good marriage, lots of kids, and financial security. He thought he’d have the first two with his ex-girlfriend while the third would come once he got his house-flipping business off the ground. When his ex doesn’t subscribe to his five-year plan, he makes Cook Brothers Construction his sole focus.

Then he moves next door to April Williams, a sassy single mom he can’t stop riling up. Throw in her matchmaking mother-in-law, who’s set her sights on Jamie being April’s knight in a leather tool belt, and a house threatening Jamie’s sanity, and it should be a recipe for disaster, but Jamie wants this three-month project to last forever. That’s if he can stop being the neighbor from hell and prove to April he’s not just flipping a house—he wants to flip her heart. *** Work In Progress is a full-length, neighbors to lovers house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is book 1 in the Cook Brothers series.



Katie's Review - Rating ★★★★

"Work in Progree is a cute, funny and lighthearted read. It was so easy for me to get caught up with this story and with these characters.

Jaime is a broody man. Trying to prove that he can be who he wants to be, while doing what he wants to do. Flipping houses has always been his dream, and when he embarks on his first flip, he never imagined it would lead him to his, smart, sassy and fierce neighbor. April, a single mother, is a holds no bar, takes no crap kinda girl. She effortlessly digs her way into Jaimes life. Their path is a fun and adorable one, with one spunky little boy in the midst. I love all three of them and couldnt stop reading their story.

For me this is a story that came out of nowhere and just made my heart swoon! "

Sarah's Review - Rating ★★★★

"From start to finish this book was great. April is full of spunk and a great heroine. As for Jamie, he was smitten right from the start. As for Axel, such a cutie.

Definitely a must read for something special and easy to read."

Laura's Review - Rating ★★★★★

"I loved everything about this little beauty, including the sexy ass god on the cover! Jamie is such an amazingly sweet guy. He falls for Sassy April and her adorable little boy from the first moment he meets them. April’s no nonsense attitude and sarcasm had me laughing out loud throughout. What I liked most was that it was actually a realistic novel. The characters were normal! No millionaires, no sexy boss types..... my kinda book!"
