Book 2, The Walshes Series
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A brilliant, alpha architect. A smart, sultry apprentice. What could possibly go wrong?
Some lines are meant to be crossed.
That f*****g 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, sweaty 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.
Stong H&h for perfect romance
Andy and Patrick...where do I start. I fall desperately in love with any female lead that is driven, not a doormat in a male dominated field. When writers can bring to the page the reality without losing it to dramatics - win for me. And then Patrick. He is just one of those infuriating heroes you want to either kick in the balls or kiss his lips off. Between the angst of 'will they both give in', you've got humor and sexiness that just steams off the page. The dynamic of the push/pull that Ms. Canterbary delivers is in perfect tempo. Not too much push you off to give up and not too much pull to leave you drained. In addition we begin to get more and more dynamic of the other siblings that is going to lead to a perfect family saga series.
Foot down: You will read book one and you will read in order. Huge, HUGE mistake if you jump on books. Although others will say it can be read as a standalone, you aren't going to walk away from the series. Kate Cantenbary is giving us more depth and insight so I stand firm on recommending as a whole read.
If you aren't familiar with Kate Cantenbary's writing, she has become one of my top five storytellers that I connect with. I insist on book one, but if you ignore me, you'll fall in love with her writing and just go back anyhow. So just trust me. If you've read book one, book two now builds on that Walsh Family world with more emotions for an engrossing and entertaining read. 5 out of 5 stars.
I love this series because this messy, screwed up and emotionally scarred Walsh family touches every single part of my empathetic heart. They're irreverent bickering and baiting of each other is just a cover for their fierce loyalty to each other that takes my breath away throughout every chapter and Patrick and Andy are complex characters that totally deserve to struggle toward their eventual happily ever after. These books must be read in order because of spoilers and I promise you will love this character driven family saga as much as I do.
I don't have words for how much I love this series! It's a must read!!
