Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"This story is full of angst, scorching HOT chemistry, humor, and love. It is MESMERIZING! The push and pull, and back and forth between these two is OFF THE CHARTS. I absolutely loved this book!" -- BradTL3

"Kate Canterbary has such a
beautiful, poetic, descriptive, style of writing. Every paragraph feels like a quote worthy moment. The prose draws you in and gives you ALL the feels. I don't form clear or distinct pictures as I read, but with this author - and this book - I am captured by the intensity of the emotions that are portrayed. You can't read a Kate Canterbary and not feel something."  -- Reviewer Louise 

A scorching hot page-turner." -- Reviewer KDRBCK

"I adore that both characters have a
fluid sexuality and have had varied relationships. I love that they are in their mid-thirties and are mature in how they communicate. I love that they find so, so much with each other." -- Book Lover JudyLynn

This was my very first book from Kate Canterbary...This romance was a the perfect combination of steamy and swoony with just the right amount of feels. BATB left me with a smile on my face and what more could you ask for then that?" -- The Hatters

Steam rating through the roof." -- Reviewer Samantha
My first read from Kate Canterbary and my instant obsession with her writing is here! I cannot express in words just how much this story warmed my heart and made me swoon like crazy. Pure romance perfection every way. Swoony. Steamy. Emotional. I will be forever in love with Linden and Jasper." -- PP's Bookshelf

"Let yourself
fall in love with Jasper and Linden like you fell in love that first time. Feel the love of nature and your surrounding. Fall in love with changing the world and doing something worth while. I don't know what else to say, but I will be listening to this as well. Also eat all the toast." -- HEA Book Nurse

"Take a heroine that is strong and independent and a growly and unapproachable hero and I promise nothing is at it seems.
There is so much more to these characters than meets the eyes and I loved it!" -- Wine, Chocolate, and Romance

"Add in a meddling, well-meaning mother, inedible baked goods, a swarm of bats and a cat who comes and goes as he pleases and we get
a story so mesmerizingly beautiful that's it's difficult to say goodbye to the characters long after the last page was turned. These characters are classic Kate. They're quirky and outspoken, pensive and introspective." -- Vera, All Booked Up

"A fun and sexy new read from Kate Canterbary, this is an opposites-attract romance with
a fun set-up, fantastic banter and chemistry, lots of laughs and a sexy and heartfelt love story." -- Reviewer AJ

"Jasper and Linden's story
grabs your attention from the start. They're constantly pushing each other's buttons." -- Reviewer Kristi

"Add this to your reading list... stat! For me this is
THE book for the summer of 2021! I couldn't put down this book once I started. There was a vulnerability to these characters that added to the story showed how much heart they have and solidified it as a MUST READ!" -- Devilishly Dirty Book Blog

"This book is
funny and oh so steamy. Canterbary did a great job highlighting the push and pull in their relationship, the underlying sexual tension which is ever present, their verbal sparring as foreplay."  -- Fi's Views in Reviews

If you do not fall in love with Linden, then we are not reading the same book." -- Audio Wildflower

"Every book Kate writes is so unique and has its own voice. And here she's created what will
undoubtedly be one of my top reads of 2021." -- Beautiful Chaos Reviews

"This is a well written flawless story which is emotionally charged, and with engaging and relatable characters, great secondary characters, and has a tad angst, intrigue, family, witty banter, love, and is a humorous and entertaining page turner. I look forward to reading more from this talented author whose work I
highly recommend." -- Reviewer Wendy

"This book was everything I needed and more!
I couldn't put it down!!" -- The Book Lover

"The banter between Jasper and Linden is delightful. This is a steamy book in the sense that although the steam happens halfway through the book,
there is so much sexual tension between them for most of the book. It's so lovely the way Jasper's insecurities and Linden's past are handled so thoughtfully."  -- AQ Loves to Read
