Synopsis Some lines are meant to be crossed. Patrick 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. Andy 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.
Five +++ Boundless Stars
I loved the first one in this series. But I absolutely loved loved The Space Between. Patrick, is very grumpy, demanding, and head strong. But on the inside he’s actually really cute. The things he worries about with Andy and the thoughts he has of her are earth shattering. Andy, is reserved and wants to really think about this “thing” with her boss. But you can’t deny the heat.
“Her brain was her sexiest feature, and working with her felt like the most bizarre, wonderful form of foreplay ever invented.”
The fire, the sexual tension between them is crushing. They have this connection. This may sound silly, but this story made me emotional. It had been awhile since a story, really tugged at my emotional strings. Where I’m sitting there, wondering why am I tearing up right now? The first time they lay in bed together, they both worry subconsciously that this may just be about sex. But in the grand scheme of it. It was never “just about” sex.
“I used to think hearts only skipped beats in near-death experiences, but often enough, Andy’s words had that effect on me.”
I loved being inside their heads, really getting who these two are. That’s what I love about dual POV, you get everything. Every lustful thought, every worry. Kate does this so amazingly. I didn’t want to stop reading but I didn’t want it to be over. It’s that dilemma readers face all the time. The sexual connection that these two have, flows so easily and the writing just really blows me away. I’m kind of bummed, that I didn’t know of Kate till now.
This is story is not without any kind of drama. But I loved it. The Walsh's are some amazing characters and I’m glad to be apart of their lives in some way. I can’t wait to read the other Walsh's stories.
