Review: Underneath It All by Kate Canterbary
The Walshes, Book 1
Expected publication: October 21st 2014
If I had known I’d have a hot architect balls deep inside of me before the end of the weekend, I’d have made time for a pedicure.
It’s all the little things—the action plans, the long-kept promises—that started falling apart when my life slipped into controlled chaos.
After I met Matthew Walsh.
I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to run screaming or rip his pants off, and most days I wanted a little of both. If I was being honest with myself, it was rip his pants off, ride him like a workhorse, and then run screaming.
A rebellious streak ran through Lauren Halsted. It was fierce and unrelentingly beautiful, and woven through too many good girl layers to count, and she wasn’t letting anyone tell her what to do.
Unless, of course, she was naked.
She wasn’t looking for me and I sure as shit wasn’t looking for her, but we found each other anyway and now we were locked in a battle of wills, waiting for the other to blink.
Sometimes the universe conspires to bring people together. Other times, it throws people down a flight of stairs and leaves them in a bruised and bloodied heap
Smart, sassy and bossy teacher Lauren has her sights set on one goal. To get her school off the ground. Being the daughter and sister to navy seals, it has been instilled in her to never give up. She’s strong, independent and focused. Even a bit of a klutz. A lover of shoes and pretty underwear, Lauren is a girly girl underneath. Her sassiness who make you laugh. A hardheaded woman only seeing straight in front of her.
Matthew is an architect whose job is his passion. His way with number is cute in a that geeky way. Beyond smart and sexy to boot. Matthew has some rather caveman like tendencies that it times are annoying and others are sexy beyond belief. When a client stumbles into his arms, Matthew wants a little more than his work obsessed life.
Underneath It All was a surprise of a book for me. It’s so much more than just a naughty teacher story. A story with emotions that are overwhelming and family. Being so ingrossed in something that the fear of doing anything else will put you off track. A story about making one’s own family. A story about setting and achieving goals. With lots of passionate, wild and steamy romance to keep you turning the pages of this heartfelt story.
