The Walshes #7
By: Kate Canterbary
Releasing June 13, 2017
BlurbTwo 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.

Author InfoKate 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.

I have been over the moon excited to read Riley's story. Now I can't wait for the audible to release in the near future...Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers are so perfect for this series. Ok, sorry to get sidetracked from my review of this amazing book.
I think that saving the best for last truly applies in this case. I have been falling in love with Riley from the very first book. He has often been one of the reasons that I've laughed in previous books, so getting to read his book now at this very moment was oh so perfect.
It has been clear that Riley has been sweet on Lauren from the very beginning and when I read the first chapter...well, you will just have to read it to understand. And Kate has the uncanny ability to pull a reaction out of her readers and make us laugh, cry and scream at our kindles...she starts out this book with a bang...so to speak.
So, Riley finally gets to find his happily-ever-after in this book and just when you think you know who and how and even what it will be, Kate throws in a curveball that you never expected. I loved the way he meets his special someone and how all the details of their relationship on fold. It is like a slow burn to the most amazing climax (pun totally intended) These two decided to give the fake relationship a try and fool everyone until they can't fool themselves anymore...because let's be real here, it never works out. However, I find myself so pulled into their "fake relationship" and all the hotness that ensues along the way that when thing heat up for these two I couldn't seem to stop turning the pages. Then when things fall apart I found myself talking to Riley and his special someone as to what they need to do to fix it, but Kate always knows better than me...this book had the perfect balance of angst, hotness and twists that makes this an amazing story.
Check out this Riley's story and you just might find yourself downloading the rest of the series if you haven't already.
