Working For It

Working For It by BJ Harvey Book Summary

Sometimes a surprise baby can lead to unexpected happy endings.


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 surprise baby standalone novel that is also the fifth and final book in the bestselling Cook Brothers house flipping rom com series.

Boring and overkill with the conversations.

Cute and heart warming story. It was hard to follow the storyline with so many characters since I had not read any of the other books in the series. Biggest negative was the language.

- Loved5 star

Unexpected bundle of joy causes both Gilly and Ezra to re-evaluate their life’s journey. I had a great and fun time reading their story. The chemistry is undeniable between the characters and the storyline flowed smoothly. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was such a cute read. I really enjoyed it. I love the chemistry between Ezra and Gilly. There were parts that made me laugh out loud and look crazy but I totally enjoyed it.

- Perfect ending to an awesome series!!!5 star

This is the last book in the Cook Brothers series (sadness!), and we get Ezra, who is best friend and honorary Cook. Also a hot and lovable guy. Who just so happens to quietly be seeing Gilly, Ronnie’s sister (Bryant’s sister-in-law) in a friends with benefits, no strings attached, sexy fun times relationship. And then Gilly ends up pregnant. And now they both have a monumental life change, and have to figure out how to tread these new waters. First off, I have to say I love Ezra 😍. He, to me, was just so perfect throughout (once he had his initial little freak out...and even that wasn’t truly bad lol). If ever there was a way you wanted a man to act/talk/be like/personify, Ezra was it. I fell hard for him ❤️ And Gilly was just perfect for him. They were a perfect match ❤️. I’m sad this series is over. But I can’t wait to reread the series again from start to finish with no waiting!!

Have you ever been excited to start a book, but dreaded it at the same time? This was the position I found myself in with Working For It. I have come to love the men and women of Cook County and knowing that Ezra Baker and Gilly Nelson’s story was to be the last in the series, well frankly I didn’t want to start it because I knew there wouldn’t be anymore in this series. I have been intrigued with Ezra since he was first introduced in the series and have been looking forward to seeing what Ms. Harvey had in store for him and I was not disappointed. There was nothing I didn’t love about this story and I loved that we got an “ending” to all the couples. Work For It is a laugh out loud romantic comedy with lots of heart and family who love and support one another and those they love. This is one of my favourite feel good series over the past 12 months and I am sad to know that this is the last book. Congratulations Ms. Harvey on an exceptional series which I have loved.

Belinda17 - A wonderful book5 star

This book is so good. This book is Ez and Gilly’s story and the last book in this series. Ez who is so swoon worthy and Gilly have one night stand in Vegas which turns into eights months of secret hook ups until fate has other ideas and ooops there is a baby. Add in the crazy funny Cook family this is a funny romantic story. A five star read with all the feels.

Marina Skinner - Truly a masterpiece of love and family!5 star

Ezra Baker be still my beating heart! This man sure knows how to make you swoon and sigh and make all your fictional boyfriend dreams come true! That man has the biggest heart and soul! Gilly is one incredibly lucky woman! She also gives as good as she gets but then the overwhelming emotions with everything, Ezra has her back bug time and its truly amazing to see! Gah this story had me smiling so big and the witty banter and steamy innuendos were off the charts entertaining! I wholeheartedly loved everything about Working for It! The sense of family and their unwavering support and friendships just made me want to be a part of it all or adopt me in some way! And the ending just made my heart feel so happy! This book is truly a masterpiece of love and family! Highly recommend it!
