Having watched his brothers meet their match, Cohen Cook is feeling something he never anticipated—envy.
With a demanding job, and helping his brothers with their biggest flip project yet, he doesn’t have time to sleep with, let alone date, anyone.
Skye Rossi is a free spirit. She’s a take-her-as-you-see-her woman who works hard and plays hard, but the person she wants to

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

This is my favourite book from this series. I was so keen to get Cohen and Skye's story after meeting them properly in the previous book. I was definitely not let down.

These two have a fabulous working relationship and friendship, however everyone can see how they would likely work well in a romantic relationship as well. Their banter and they way they just fit together is perfect.

Once things ramp up a bit more, it becomes even more

5 star Review Hard Work (Cook County #4) by B.J. Harvey
What happens when you suddenly see the woman you work with in a different light? For over a year Cohen Cook has managed to keep Skye Rossi firmly in the friend zone until suddenly she isn’t.
I loved Cohen from the first time he was introduced in the beginning of the series and all this book has done has made me fall even more in love with him. From the first to the last chapter I was totally invested and all in with Cohen and Skye.
It is

4.5 stars!

Hilarious, heartfelt and a real feel good read. This has been a fantastic series. BJ Harvey has developed some amazing characters and the more they get picked off one by one the more this family grows. The segue into the final book of this series has me salivating and I cannot wait to see what comes next.

Well BJ Harvey has given us another funny, sexy and a feel good story between two friends who decide to cross that line without complications….or will there be??

I know I have said this before, but I believe BJ Harvey is the Queen of romantic comedies. She knows how to give us light hearted storylines and characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Hard Work was no different!! I truly enjoyed reading this friends to

Hard Work is just a wonderful installment in the Cook Brothers series.

We learned a bit about Cohen and Skye in the previous book, and now it is time for them to shine.

This book is sweet, funny - at times downright hilarious - and full of so much UST it leaps out of the book.

You know right from the start that the little arrangement Cohen and Skye make is never going to work. I love that they naively thought that the could just be FWB, but the reader is

This is Cohen and Skye’s story.

I definitely enjoyed Cohen and Skye’s relationship especially as it changed. I would say it was a slow burn but it was more like a medium burn because these 2 were hot for each other right from the beginning of this book. This book was very steamy and it had some very swoon-worthy moments; that moment with the peanut allergy was so heartbreaking.

Again I love seeing everyone from the

I totally fell in love with this book. For me this series just keeps getting better and better, giving so much depth into the Cook family. It makes you feel like you are at home and a part of the family.

This books starts with an arrangement that you know will never work. It's impossible. Because you can see the chemistry between Cohen and Skye from the first second they lay eyes on each other. The friendship that develops is special and bring another dimension to the relationship that you know

Fan-flipping-tastic that’s what this book is, holy mother of god do I love these Cook men. I didn’t think it could get any better after Jax and Bryant’s stories but I was wrong, Cohen and Skye are a wonderful pairing. This story is a classic best friends to lovers journey with a few bumps, a few tears, some soul searching and a whole lot of laughs.

It is basically the perfect romance and has everything you could want or need. This book is every-flipping-thing it made me laugh so hard I almost

HARD WORK is the fourth book in the "Cook Brothers" series. Cohen (Co/Cass) is the baby of the Cook Family and Skye (Brat) is the youngest in the Rossi clan so they are kindred spirits.

This is a classic friends to lovers to more story. It is well executed, there is s little bit of mystery that unravels at the right spot and a couple of families who like to eat, spend time and cOck block each other.

The story has a sense of humor about it and the timing is wonderful. We even get to revisit the

I just to say that this entire series is some of BJ Harvey's best work to date. Her writing is on a whole other level and with Hard Work, the balance between sharp wit and swoony chemistry goodness is off the charts incredible!

Cohen and Skye are romance gold together.
