Review: The Space Between by Kate Canterbary
The Walsh Series, Book 2
Some lines are meant to be crossed.
That hair. That fucking hair. It was everywhere, always, and I wanted to tangle my fingers in those dark curls and pull. And that would be fine if she wasn’t my apprentice.
Andy Asani was nothing like I expected. She was exotic and scary-brilliant, and the slightest murmur from those lips sent hot, hungry lust swirling through my veins. Outside my siblings, she was the only person I could name who shared my obsession with preserving Boston’s crumbling buildings.
My wants were few: good eats, tall boots, hot yoga, interesting work. One incredibly hot architect with the most expressive hazel eyes I ever encountered and entirely too much talent in and out of the bedroom wasn’t part of the original plan. Apparently he was part of the package.
Wine was my rabbi and vodka was my therapist, and I needed plenty of both to survive my apprenticeship. Especially with Patrick Walsh leaving love notes in the form of bite marks all over my body.
Kate Canterbary continues steam up the kindle with the Walshs in The Space Between.
Andy is not your average girl. She’s a bit of a Geek. Beyond smart and willing to step up to the plate to get what she wants. She has a dry humor and her me it took a bit for me to really get her personality. Independent, somewhat mysterious and maybe a bit hard headed, Andy is a bit hard to figure out but once you do your realize there is a depth to her. Having a Harry Potter related tattoos does give her points in my book.
Patrick caught my eye when we first meet him in Underneath It All. Patrick is a take no crap and get the job done kind of guy. He’s the eldest of the Walsh family, a workaholic and damn good at what he does. A man who’s in control until a geeky intern cracks his foundation. Shedding some of the tough outer layers we realize the Patrick is really a funny guy with a great heart. The comical drunk texting and that dirty talking mouth on him show a side of Patrick that I would’ve never guessed was there. I liked him before I knew his story. I like him even more now.
Intense and funny. We dive deeper into the Walsh family, while seeing two head strong people fall bat shit crazy for each other. Attraction and chemistry are in abundance for Patrick and Andy, there personalities work for each other even if the stubbornness get in the way at times. They are overwhelmingly sexy together. Just read. We get more insight into the Walsh family history and learn more the dynamics behind the personalities of this intense family. Kate Canterbary is winner my heart with the Walsh family.

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.
