Tour Blitz for PRESERVATION by Kate Canterbary

Riley Walsh has spent a lifetime flying under the radar. 
One woman -- and a wild weekend -- is about to change everything.

The Walshes #7
Kate Canterbary
Released June 13, 2017
Vesper Press

Two lonely hearts.

Just once, she'd like to be someone's first choice.
She's strong-willed and spunky, but she's left picking up the pieces from her ex's lies and manipulations, and daydreaming about taking a scalpel to his scrotum.

Flying under the radar is what he does best.
He's laid-back and loyal, but he wants the most off-limits woman in his world, and nothing will ever make that a reality.

An arrangement of mutual benefit.

Two months, four dates.
Five, if things go well.
Five at the most.
But possibly six.
Definitely no more than six dates.
Only the appearance of a romantic relationship is required, and they expect nothing more from their time together. There will be none of those benefits involved.

One wild weekend.

After waking up in bed together—very naked and even more hungover—the terms and conditions of their arrangement no longer apply. Now they're faced with something riskier than exposing their fake relationship:  letting go of the past and zipping up the future.

Some things have to fall apart before they can be put back together.

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.

***********MY REVIEW**********

'Preservation' by Kate Canterbary is book 7 in "The Walshes" Series.
This is Riley’s emotional story and what a story it is. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but what I can tell you this story will have you reaching for tissues and it will take your breath away.
Riley is always walking in at the most inopportune moments like when our favorite couples in the Walshes series are having some sexual time and he interrupts (awkward!), or his getting injured but he is just being Riley. In this book, we come to see there is more to him than the lighthearted persona he projects and there is a deeper pain and some secrets he has been hiding from his family. Ones he is so afraid of getting out. This took my breath away and had me just in shock but he is still the same Riley, still the same heart of gold Riley.
Now HIS someone Special enters his life and boy is she a bit sarcastic and is a sassy lady. She is also brilliant, beautiful and quirky. She had me sit up and take notice and so did Riley. He doesn’t realize she is His Someone Special but I knew it and when you read this story , you see she is the one for him immediately. Its unexpected but needed for him. The dual POV is shown for Riley and his lady so you see how they feel and what they are thinking in this story. Also, The Walsh family members are in this story and are definitely in this story so be prepared for the family. As always with the Walshes, there are the good times and the bad, the highs and the lows.
Riley –what can I say? He is so complex that I even now do not know what to say and am speechless. But in a good way. This story is breathtaking and complex, full of passion and angst, love and forgiveness. As always, Kate Canterbury has written a delectable tale that is romantic, sexy, passionate, and spellbinding. Kate has a way with her words and expressing emotions that come across to her readers and really gets you to feel her characters’ feelings whether they are full of love or anger or pain and yet still say invested until the very end. I am so glad she writes because I love every written word. This has been the book I have been waiting for and what a wait!! I cannot wait to see what she releases next!

My Rating: 4.9 stars *****
