Release Day & Review: Fresh Catch by Kate Canterbary
No strings, no promises, no problems.
Title: Fresh Catch Author: Kate Canterbary Cover Design: Anna Crosswell, Cover Couture Release Date: February 20, 2018
Take a vacation, they said. Get away from Silicon Valley's back-stabbing and power-grabbing. Recharge the innovative batteries.
Unwind, then come back stronger than ever. Instead, I got lost at sea and fell in love with an anti-social lobsterman. There's one small issue: Owen Bartlett doesn't know who I am. Who I really am. ~~ I don't like people. I avoid small talk and socializing, and I kick my companions out of bed before the sun rises. No strings, no promises, no problems. Until Cole McClish's boat drifts into Talbott's Cove, and I bend all my rules for the sexy sailor. I don't know Cole's story or what he's running from, but one thing is certain: I'm not letting him run away from me.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Fresh Catch is one of those stories that is unexpected. This is the first MM book I’ve ever read. I knew that I had to read it. Anything Kate writes attaches itself to my heart. Owen and Cole’s relationship happens by chance. Almost like their love story was destined to happen. It isn’t easy at first, as the two try to figure each other out. But neither of them can deny that connection that they have. They have that passion and that yearning for something more. Cole may have run from something, but he landed into the arms of the man that was meant for him. Even though I didn’t emotionally connect with the characters. I felt that the story was strong on its own. Owen’s growly character matches Cole’s over talkative nature. It tugged at my heartstrings, and I was happy for them. I think I’ve said this before, but I believe Kate has a fantastic talent. I’ve loved every story that she’s created. Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars.
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.
