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.

What a perfect way to start a new series with a 5 star review and Work in Progress has certainly left me with lots of anticipation for the rest of the Cook County Series. This author knows how to give her fans romantic comedy and this book is rom com at its best. April hasn’t had it easy as a single mum she has had many challenges in her life and after her ex husband left her she is bringing up her adorable son Axel with the help of her mother in law. Life is crazy busy with shifts as a nurse at the local hospital and any spare time is spent with Axel so there is never any alone time for this loving mum and the last thing she needs is a new neighbour disturbing her sleep after a long shift...... Jamie has just started renovating the house he is trying to flip and even though he feels remorse for disturbing his feisty neighbours sleep he can’t help riling her up. Who would have thought he would end up with such a gorgeous neighbour..... An instant attraction and lots of witty banter all help make this a great read, it’s a book that will captivate you it will make you laugh and it will leave you smiling like a Cheshire Cat and once you add in the adorable Axel you get perfection. I fell in love with every character in this book and I’m excited for the rest of the series. This is romantic comedy at its best.

This story had me smiling, giggling, tearing up a couple times, and interested in the characters. April and Jamie made a great couple. Loved Jamie's instant attraction to April and her son. April was protective, fun, and patient. The Cook brothers and family were wonderful as well. I look forward to reading more in this series. I highly recommend this book. I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

This was a cute story with no drama. While I liked Jamie and April, I never really felt their chemistry. If you’re looking for a quick read with likable characters, a little steam, and no drama, this is the book for you. I am looking forward to reading about the rest of the Cook brothers.

Work in Progress is the first book in the Cook County series that will have you laughing out loud with each encounter between Jamie, the hot houseflipping neighbor and April, the sassy single nurse. This book seduced me with the witty banter, sassy comebacks, fiesty attitude and explosive sexual chemistry that had we wondering when my pages would catch fire. Add in a rambunctious little boy who had my heart from the moment he snuck in. If you love a great family rom com then you definitely need to read this story because it's the first in a long line of Cook brother's that will leave you begging for more!

ll this was a really good read. I have to say this was a lovely easy read and I was able to throughly lose myself in this book for an enjoyable few hours. The story was engrossing and flowed well and it's the sort of book that's a perfect pool side read. The characters are super likeable and easy to relate to and I thought Jamie and April had great chemistry. This is a single mum read so it goes without saying that Axel, the cutest kid ever steels the show. If you're looking for a fun rom-com with little drama and angst, you can't go far wrong with this book and I look forward to the next book in this series. I was provided with a copy of this book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation and I opted to leave a review.
