The Walsh family is back in this second installment in the series about a close knit group of siblings tainted by the pain their father heaped on them from the moment their mother died in front of them until the day he died. It's left each of them doubtful of their abilities to love and be loved and it's a struggle of extreme emotions for them to reach their HEA in this nicely paced story with lots of steamy encounters. Patrick is an intense man who doesn't tolerate those who can't keep up with him. He likes to control all facets of work and home life but is thrown for a loop by the first woman to truly challenge him. The only trouble is is that she's the new intern and having a relationship with the boss might jeopardize her career. Patrick tries to fight his attraction but through lunches and thought-provoking conversation he becomes more obsessed with her. Friendship slowly morphs into flirty texts and when one drunken night turns sensual there's no going back for either of them. Patrick never saw himself as the marrying kind but each touch and glance has him longing for more until gossip and misunderstandings ruins the deep connection they've created. Will Patrick finally become his own man or will the ghost of his father keep him forever alone? Andy is a strong-willed woman who's kept herself closed off since the murder of her father. She's not close with her family and has very few friends. She's a woman of mystery and it will take a determined man to get her to open up. Career is everything to her though and as she's always admired Patrick's intelligence she longs to work for him and learn all she can from him. She's drawn to him from the moment she sees him, enjoying their witty banter and increasingly steamy encounters. Though she wants to keep things relegated to just sex their relationship grows deeper and soon they're inseparable until his harsh words drive her away. Their need for each other is incredibly strong but it will take a lot of groveling on Patrick's part to get Andy back in a richly rewarding and heartfelt conclusion. This was an enjoyable story from start to finish with immensely likable and larger than life characters. The dialogue between Patrick and Andy, as well as Patrick and his siblings, was rapid fire and playful and often put a smile on my face. The sexual tension between Patrick and Andy was obvious from the moment they met and got increasingly hotter to make for a crackling and deep-seated connection between them. At story's end the highlight is on family and their playful and argumentative interactions that were endearing and have me excited for future installments as each of the remaining siblings has issues to deal with. Ms. Canterbary has crafted an entertaining series with realistic familial interactions and I highly recommend it to readers who like stories full of colorful characters and steamy 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.

The Space Between (The Walsh Series #2) Kate Canterbary This is a sequel book but can be read a standalone. Kate is such a fantastic author, she pulls you in and holds on to you until the very end. This book is chock full of humor, sexy times, and angst. Patrick and Andy are perfect for each other. Andy with all her little “hm’s” and Patrick with all his growling intimidation, it’s such an entertaining read with all the fun interaction between the Walsh siblings. This series a great go to if you need a humorous entertaining read to lose yourself in.

4.5 Stars This was my first Kate Canterbary book and I loved it, so much so that I had to get Underneath it All, the first Walsh book in the Series. You will love Andi and Patrick! Their communication with just staring at each other is priceless. Her adorable socks, their foodie ways. Just loved them.

4 stars The second book in 'The Walshes' series is just as amazingly written as the first was. The eldest Walsh brother, Patrick, meets his match in the young but brilliant Andy Asani. The characterization is done extremely well and I will never get enough of these people. They are intelligent, funny and have everyday troubles and it was very refreshing to read, in between all the rockstar with stalkers/ kidnapped by the maid/ my husband is the easter bunny things I read every day. This book should be read after 'Underneath It All' and you will not regret it if you pick it up today!

Starting out your dream apprenticeship lusting after your boss is now way to go! Unfortunately for Andy Asani that's exactly what is happening. When that lust is reciprocated, one long year is surely ahead!! Hopefully lots of wine, vodka, and yoga will get Andy through it. Patrick Walsh doesn't make it easy though. Always the serious, grumpy Walsh brother he seems to change around Andy making him hotter than he already is. When things get heated will they be able to keep everyone else in the dark or will their secret affair flare out of control?? I love this Walsh family. All a little bruised and a lot battered, what they have is each other and the loyalty they have is fantastic. This is a great series and this book is definitely one I recommend.

The Space Between, Kate Canterbary Genre: Romance Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Book two in the series and I was so pleased to see it. It reminds me a bit of the Kat and Stone Bastion book series No Weddings. Not in the content, but in the style its written, much of it first person, pathos and humour, a story that makes the reader see both sides, and a supportive, though at times bickering, family who run a business together utilising each persons strengths. Where NW gave us fabulous descriptive parties that I could envisage, and delicious inventive cakes, this family's story gives us incredible buildings, insights into sustainable mechanics, and just what can be done to old and new buildings. Sustainable future is something I’m passionate about too - and of course we’ve a story that mixes humour with tears, passion, romance and smouldering sex, with deep, dark drops that made me really sad. I loved the first book, though I floundered a bit on working out the back story and how everyone related. I’m still a little in the dark, but as the story grows more becomes clear. The stories centre around the Walsh siblings, and what a terrific group they are. Four brothers, two sisters, ( I’m desperate to know what brought on the breach between Erin and Shannon – 5 years is a long time to hold a grudge) and all apart from Erin work together in their own firm. They each have specialised talents and different characters, very, very different. Patrick as the oldest is known for being abrupt to the point of rudeness, but passionate about his work and a born leader. They’ve all got nicknames and his is Optimus. ( My boys were Transformers fans as kids, so I recognise the irony of it. I love Matt’s wife-to-be, Lauren’s name – Miss Honey, she’s a schoolteacher/owner and they’ve taken the name from Roald Dahl's book Matilda) Finally the firm is taking on its first intern, and Andy appears. From the first sight of her Patrick is struck – and he hates losing control. He doesn’t want to take her even though she’s undoubtedly perfect for the job, tries to say “no” at the interview but Andy's having none of it. He’s her hero, his dissertation has been her inspiration and bedtime reading for years, this is the job she’s aimed for since her teens, and she’s getting it. As he interrupts her and starts to say No, she stops him and tells him she hasn’t finished speaking..... Needless to say she gets the position, and its Patrick she’ll be working with. The first few weeks are a nightmare for him, he can’t concentrate, her nearness affects his thoughts, his speech and his actions. He’s so abrupt in the office about her the others think he hates her but nothing could be further from the truth. When they’re out on site he manages to wrangle her lunching with him, and thinks up every excuse he can for them to spend more time together. Somehow this self contained, ever composed, always in control man is soon in the throes of a passionate affair with Andy. She’s afraid for her reputation, doesn’t want people gossiping, saying she only get the job because she’s sleeping with him. Patrick is just mentally displaced and can’t work out what’s happened, just knows he can’t get enough of her. I love the way they are together, and it’s like they are just so perfect. Still, the secret romance gradually gets to be more widely known in the family, but just as it seems as if they are finally going to go public, tell everyone they’re in love all goes wrong. Terribly wrong, and the old prejudices on both sides that have made them both hold parts of themselves back so far, snake out and they say things they regret. Poor Patrick, and poor Andy. He regrets what happened and what he said, she can see where she’s maybe jumped to conclusions and yet she can’t go back, or maybe that’s won’t. She’s afraid that everything she’s spent years working for will be lost...and won’t respond to his apologies. Its a really sad time – and I love those, and for me its extended perfectly, to the point where I wondered whether this would continue to another book...( it doesn’t, no cliff hangers) I just couldn’t see how they’d come back, how Andy could put things behind her. Along with the Patrick and Andy story, there’s the overall smaller plots regarding the family, changes within the firm, the aftermath of the death and reading of their fathers Will, Matt and Lauren’s wedding, and the mystery surrounding Erin. Its a family full of secrets, a family so hurt by their fathers actions. He loved them dearly, they were a wonderful, close and happy family for years, until when Patrick was eleven their mother died in really tragic and bloody circumstances, dying in front of her young children. Their dad seemed to blame them, has been a drunken and angry father since, and his rages against each of them were vitriolic, so cruel and destructive, picking at what he knew were weak spots and creating as much hurt as he could. Really its a wonder they survived so well, and it’s made them a very tight knit family. The earlier part where in book one I said it felt like I didn’t know the backstory is gradually coming out, and I feel I know so much more about the family this way. Its so massive the background that this show way of letting me see the past is best, had it been just “told” then I think I’d not have got the full impact of the horror that was their childhood after their mothers death. I hate being told a plot anyway, I find I just switch off, and don’t remember essential info, so this way has proved great for me, even though I had initial misgivings. I certainly want to read more from the family but who next? Erin? with whatever’s between her and Shannon, or Shannon with her full on aggressive man-eater kind of outlook that’s probably covering a vulnerable and hurt inside. Or Sam, the gentle soul on the surface, but with deep emotional issues simmering beneath, the man who their father mocked and called gay even though he’s always out with the ladies...or Riley the baby? He’s Andy’s age and yet there seems years between them. He seems like one of life’s innocents as far as malice goes, always joking, friendly, outgoing but he gets teased for his ability to mess up his clothes ( the coffee!) and often seems to get the bum jobs dumped on him. I wonder what’s going on behind that make everyone smile image he shows. Stars: Five, a wonderful gripping sexy continuation of the Walsh family. ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers

THE SPACE BETWEEN by Kate Canterbary *was generously given a copy in exchange for an honest review……Thank You THE SPACE BETWEEN is the second book in THE WALSHES’ series but a complete standalone. Each individual book is centered on one of the five Walsh siblings. THE SPACE BETWEEN follows the oldest son, Patrick and his very beautiful, black haired intern, Andy. As Andy and Patrick desires build towards each other, watch out because steamy scenes and lots of chemistry ensue. These two characters are hotter than hot together. And even though Andy is hesitant about getting involved, Patrick is her boss after all; the hesitation does not last long. However, they both want to keep everything on the low down until Andy is no longer an intern.  Patrick and Andy are great together and it is fun to watch these two.  Patrick is everything you want in a book boyfriend: Broody, grumpy, sexy, domineering, damaged and BEAUTIFUL.  Andy is tough as nails and does not take any attitude, driven, dedicated, and all around fun. THE SPACE BETWEEN is fun and light hearted with just enough to keep all entertained. The writing is flawless and always a great read. I would strongly recommend for anyone just needing a great story. THE SPACE BETWEEN by Kate Canterbary receives 4 out of 5 Platypires. TEXAS HUGS AND HAPPY READING!!!
