About the Book
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.

Order the Book!

Whelp. First off I didn’t know this was a series and just to be clear IMO you don’t have to have read book one to enjoy this. Secondly, this is a new author to me, so I am going in blind to her writing style.

My thoughts you ask? Pretty good :) I LOVE the dynamic of the Walsh siblings all working together and the slow reveal of their past/childhood. It made for heartfelt moments and made me feel a stronger connection with this family.

When Patrick and Andi finally get together especially in the later 50% of the book it’s a sweet, hot, and a perfect match. Honestly though, in the first 50% I found myself annoyed and didn’t like Andi very much. She came off as pretentious, self absorbed, and somewhat condescending. Patrick, however, stays a growling beast that I think many will fall in love with.

All in all, The Space Between is a good read. Will I be sticking with the series? Yes, I think so. It’s been 24 hours since I finished reading, and for whatever reason I just can’t get these Walsh siblings out of my mind. I think I will be going back to grab book one and earmark further books to come!

"This is the best taco truck in Boston," Patrick said, gesturing to the van parked between Harrison and Concord in the South End. "The best. No pickled beets or arugula. Real tacos. You like tacos, right? If you don't, this isn't going to work out."

"Haven't met a taco I don't like," I replied from the passenger seat of Patrick's Range Rover.
"If you tell anyone about this, or put it on Twitter, and then everyone and their uncle shows up and I can't get a taco? You'll be pulling permits at City Hall for the next six years."
"I can handle that."
With a nod, we headed toward the van. We ordered the day's special, barbacoa de costilla, and he inclined his head toward the park across the street. It was cold but the late afternoon sun seeped through my skin, and I turned my face toward it when we settled on a stone bench. The tacos were delicious, and when I told Patrick as much, he grunted in agreement. It was a raw, beautiful sound that annihilated Operation Don't Think About Patrick Walsh Naked.
I wanted to hear that sound again. I wanted to cause that sound. I ate my tacos, staring at a bronze statue of a rider on horseback, reminding myself to stop thinking about sex.

Book One on The Walshes Series 
Underneath It All (The Walshes, #1)

Brewing up trouble one pint at a time.

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.

About the Author

Kate 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 Rhode Island 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.
