Ronnie Nelson likes to be chased.
Jaxon Cook loves a challenge.
Ronnie wants a man who pulls out all the stops.
Jax doesn't stop until he gets what he wants.
Seems like a match made in heaven. Until an unexpected development—of the 'call me Professor Cook' variety—makes their attraction a lot more forbidden.
Now, committing a work violation has become a forgone conclusion and the chase just became a lot more complicated.
Lucky for Ronnie, Jax loves breaking the rules.
Lucky for Jax, Ronnie does too.
Work Violation is a full-length, family friends to lovers, professor/adult student, house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is book 2 in the Cook County series.
Fun, sweet and sexy!
I absolutely love this story and Jaxon & Ronnie!! They are both such amazing characters and Ms. Harvey made it so easy to fall in love with them! Their chemistry is perfect! Jax is totally swoonworthy and Ronnie never stood a chance at winning “the chase” as they called it, not they she wanted to. After one night of passion, they agree to take things slow because of other circumstances that soon come to light. Ronnie is finally doing what she wants to do with her career and life m, including seeing Jax. I love that she doesn’t let her family drag her down and I love how Jax stands up to them. Jaxon’s family is great and so supportive while also providing tons of comic relief! I can’t wait for more of their stories! Ronnie and Jax know at the end of this there is only one acceptable outcome. I love how their relationship develops with it’s slow burn because their ability to fall in love relied more on getting to know each other and spending time together. But once they finally do take that final step together, there are fireworks!! This is such a fun, sweet, funny, sexy and steamy story that will definitely keep you wanting more from Cook County especially after the teaser chapter for Bryant’s book!
Light and humorous
We first meet Jax and Ronnie in Work in Progress. They’ve known each other for a year, but we don’t get to see any of that in this book, so there’s no build up. This made it difficult for me to connect. There should be sexual tension and I’m not feeling it. I did enjoy the banter between Jax and Ronnie. There is potential for drama, but it ends up being anticlimactic. Although I never connected, I did like all the characters. This was a light, humorous story.
Whelp, it’s obvious these Cook brothers are all going to just grab your heart and run with it. And Jax, well he has proven to be quite swoon worthy 😍. He’s the whole package, sexy, charming, funny, and just filled with so much heart. He’s had his eye on Ronnie, April’s best friend, for a year, but didn’t do anything because he didn’t want to potentially “rock the boat”. Turns out, Ronnie, a vivacious, strong willed, intelligent woman who just decided to change her career & life, has her eye on Jax too. Needless to say, this leads to quite an interesting back and forth if you will, game on so to speak. But boy was it an awesome ride. I loved Jamie. I really loved Jaxon ❤️. Can’t wait to see what the next brother has in store for us!!!
