Patrick
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.

Andy
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.

Author Bio

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

Sure Thing Sunday – Kate Canterbary

Sure Thing Sunday

 

Every week I am going to post about a book or book series that is a sure thing. This week’s post is for The Walsh Series by Kate Canterbary. There are 4 books out in the series currently with more on the way. Each of these books is about a different sibling, and all are fantastic reads.

Underneath It All

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.

Lauren
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.

Matthew
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.

They liked to call me names. Manwhore. Slut. Player. But I make wrong look so right…

He’s a flawed perfectionist…
I can read women better than any blueprint. I understand their thoughts and feelings, their secret desires and insecurities, and I know how to get rid of them once I get off.

But all bets are off when Tiel Desai slams into my life. She redefines what it means to be friends, and she makes it sound like the filthiest thing I’ve ever heard.

I can’t read the gorgeous conservatory-trained violinist, but she’s the only one keeping me from shattering by small degrees, and I can’t let her go.

She’s wildly independent…
My past—and New Jersey—are far behind me, and now my life is blissfully full of music: playing, teaching, and lecturing, and scouring Boston’s underground scene with an annoyingly beautiful, troubled, tattooed architect.

I’m defenseless against his rooftop kisses, our nearly naked dance parties, the snuggletimes that turn into sexytimes, and his deep, demanding voice.

I have Sam Walsh stuck in my head like a song on repeat, and I’m happy pretending history won’t catch up with me.

The one thing they have in common is a rock-solid disregard for the rules.
They find more in each other than they ever realized they were missing, but they might have to fall apart before they can come together.

It’s the wrongs that make the rights come to life.

25237597A tough-as-nails businesswoman. An arrogant Navy SEAL. A power struggle with no end in sight.

Some people hook-up at weddings. Others break a hotel room bed (and a table, and a desk, and some complimentary bathrobe belts) and discover they’ve been surviving on bargain basement orgasms their entire lives.
The last one? Yeah. That’s all me.

She’s driven and demanding…
I wasn’t always a bitch. There’s a dirty little trick to succeeding in business: the sweet and innocent rarely survive. I fought my way up from nothing, and I don’t bend for anyone.

Until Will Halsted ties me to a headboard and makes me his…for now.

One wild, filthy night turns into another, and then…we can’t stop. Each time we’re together is more addictive than the last, but it’s nothing more than a sexy escape from reality.

Or is it?

He’s never walked away from a challenge…
I wasn’t always a warrior but now it’s in my bones and blood. That’s what years spent in the Special Forces does to a man. My entire life is classified: where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, what I’ve done, and there’s no mission too dangerous.

Until I realize that falling for Shannon Walsh is like trying to swim against a riptide. She’s going to tear me up and toss me to the shore, and I’ll love every minute of it.

Every time I’m down range, I want her counting the hours until I’m back. Waiting for me. She’s done it before; she’ll do it again.

Or will she?

They’re wrong for each other in every possible way…
Or are they?

The Space Between by Kate Canterbary – REVIEW and Giveaway

The Space Between by Kate Canterbary

Synopsis

Some lines are meant to be crossed.

Patrick
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.

Andy
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.

My Review

5 Stars

I just finished and I’m ready to start it over again right now. I loved this book.

This book was refreshing. It was a brilliant take on the boss employee scenario that kept me glued to the page to find out what happened next.. The story had just the right amount of everything I look for in my next favorite and I look forward to seeing what the author comes up with next. She will be an automatic one click for me.

My Thoughts

I was drawn to this story, because both characters were architects. In the first book we met Patrick and he came off as this serious architect that didn’t mess around. I couldn’t wait to get in his head, and man was the wait worth it. I was in love with Patrick from the start, but Andi, oh man, Andi I loved her even more. I felt so in tune with her it was almost scary.

Andi with her love of food trucks and brilliant architecture, was not your normal romance book heroine, and that is what made me love her even more. She had an attitude, she had trust and control issues, but mainly she was herself and that to me is the best part of the book.

Patrick, poor Patrick, was so completely sunk over Andi he didn’t know what to do with himself when she didn’t act or respond how he thought she would. He had trouble with the age difference in that he knew what he wanted and was ready to settle and she was just out of school and not quite there.

Overall I loved the two together. They balanced each other out in the most perfect ways and neither were without their quirks and flaws and this made the story for me. As much as I loved each separately I loved them together more.

Notable Quotes

“I noticed the boots. I noticed them and the long legs encased in them about four seconds after I ripped my eyes away from her hair. They went all the way up to her knees. All I could think about was wrapping those legs around my neck and feeling those ridiculous heels digging into my back while she writhed against my face.
Yep. That was a normal thought for the start of an interview.”


“Inside five days, she became my left hand, and she loved it. It was a good thing she had no idea what I was doing with my left hand when she wasn’t around.”


“Sometimes, talking to people wasn’t easy for me, especially idiots,”


“The quiet, rough tone did awful things to me. If he asked me to caulk his tub with that voice, I’d eagerly do it.”


“Touching her, kissing her — it changed things. It changed everything. At least for me.”


Her brain was her sexiest feature, and working with her felt like the most bizarre, wonderful form of foreplay ever invented.


He turned my body into a needy, achy ball of want, and with each passing hour, I wanted him twice as much as I did the previous. And he was my boss – the man I idolized from afar for years, the man in control of my future as an architect.


“I want…I want to stop pretending this is ‘just sex’. This isn’t ‘just sex’ for me, Andy, and I don’t think it is for you either.”

Men as Types of Architecture by Kate Canterbary – Guest Post

The following is a guest post by Kate Canterbary in honor of the 1 year publication anniversary of Underneath It All, pertaining to the main male characters in her Walsh Associates series:

Men as Types of Architecture

I spend a lot of time thinking about men. Probably more than necessary, but it’s all in the name of research, right?

In this time, I’ve determined a few things: Men are special creatures. While no two are identical (don’t get me started on twins), certain patterns—trends, themes, organizing principals—emerge upon close study.

And when I’m not thinking about men, I’m thinking about architecture. Naturally, I see men as types of architecture, and some of my favorite men are the Walsh brothers—Matthew (Underneath It All), Patrick (The Space Between), Sam (Necessary Restorations), and Riley (untitled 6th book). They’re as different as brothers could be, but if there’s one thing they can agree on, it’s loving architecture.

Modern

Modern-Architecture-Harborview-Hills-by-Laidlaw-Schultz-Architects-32445

 

Most Modern architecture centers on the principal of paring down designs and prioritizing minimalism. This style favors sharp lines, asymmetry, geometric forms, and natural light, and is free from most elements of ornamentation.

“The hallway floor creaked beneath my feet, and I leaned against the door frame, gazing at Matthew’s bare backside. I didn’t think they actually made men like this—strong and defined without being muscle-bound, dark without being excessively hairy, and gorgeous without being too pretty. And most importantly, he was naked in my bed at three in the morning.”

The Modern Man comes across as serious, even harsh or emotionless, but don’t misinterpret him. He’s a linear thinker, and he assumes the roles of problem solver and mediator in most situations. He craves openness and freedom to shake off his thoughts. Not unlike Bungalow Men, Modern Men prefer simplicity. They know their pleasures, and they seek them without apology. While he prefers order and structure to decorative embellishments of any kind—you won’t find the Modern Man coordinating his watch with his cuff links or tie clip—he knows how to lavish special treatment on the right partner.

Colonial

Monticello

 Nearly four hundred years of architectural history encompasses the Colonial style, stretching all the way back to the original colonist. The style has evolved in that time, but many elements hold true over the years: strong, symmetrical façades, gabled roofs, and evenly spaced windows. These homes stand the test of time, and as trends come and go, the Colonials remain rock-solid.

“Patrick’s short reddish-brown hair shone in the afternoon sunlight and his hard hazel eyes flashed with interest as he sat. His shirtsleeves were rolled up to his elbows, exposing a long stretch of freckled skin over rippling forearms. He came in around Matthew’s height but his presence seemed larger, definitely unapproachable and certainly intimidating, and I figured he preferred it that way.”

The Colonial Man is reliable, he comes through in every crisis, and his tough, serious exterior never reveals his soft spots. The Colonial Man is direct and honest, and he hates reading between lines and playing games. Though he doesn’t usually know it, he’s devastatingly sexy. He prefers to watch events as they unfold and determine a clear strategy before jumping in, but when he see something—or someone—he wants, he’s not afraid to go for it. Colonial Men know their history, and that makes them mesmerizing storytellers (and dirty talkers).

Victorian

2578664

 The Victorian style encompasses several eras and substyles, though the most defining characteristic is its overarching eclecticism. Influences from range from British to French to Asian to Middle Eastern, and in North American, Victorian architecture is decidedly decorative, ornamental, and picturesque. Advancements in technology allowed this style to emerge, and precision and time required to build Victorian homes was enormous.

“Sam oozed trend and charm. His auburn hair was strategically sculpted into the perfect tousled look, and I was positive I saw his entire outfit—light gray glen plaid trousers and matching vest, crisp white shirt with funky cufflinks, and hot pink tie—in a boutique window on Newbury Street. Sam’s frame was shorter and slimmer, a contrast to his brothers’ broad, sculpted bodies, and though he most resembled Patrick, his look was all his own.”

The Victorian Man is particularly concerned with appearances, but they aren’t shallow. They believe in looking their best, and on most occasions, that involves statement socks, three-piece suits, and Windsor knots. While the Victorian pays extra attention to his façade, the interior is equally impressive. While they may appear overly complicated, every element of the Victorian Man serves a purpose, and it’s his partner’s job to uncover those purposes. It isn’t easy getting past the layers, but it’s always worth it. To know a real Victorian Man, to explore his niches and secrets, is to love every complex part of him.

Bungalow

craftsman3

The Bungalow is a distinctly West Coast approach to architecture, a contrast to the lavish Victorians, Tudors, and Greek Revivals that dominated during first half of the last century, and Bungalow Men embody the same contrasts.

“His technical vocabulary wasn’t precise and even his most detailed ideas sounded vague…Riley worked unbelievably hard at giving everyone the impression he didn’t care, but I knew he did…”

They’re all for the easy, straightforward lifestyle, and they’re intentional in their desire to be simplistic but that doesn’t mean they skimp on the fun. If anything, Bungalow Men take fun to the next level—they can mix any drink, they know how to keep the good times rolling, and they always want to go streaking. Bungalow Men aren’t just frat boys; with the right partner, they’re patient and affectionate, and they hold little back. They seek good friends, good times, and above all else, the love of a good woman.
