Editorial Reviews


"This book is an emotional mess, but in a good way." - Alpha Book Club
"Kate Canterbary has created a series that I can't wait to read more of, each book is standalone, but when read together there is magic. I love the writing style, the banter, the quirks of each character and the heat that she brings to each book."- The Blushing Reader
"I am seriously getting addicted to The Walshes series. The giggles, the tears, the perplexing emotional rollercoaster, of "Necessary Restorations" in particular, make this series one that keeps me invested in this tight-knit slightly dysfunctional family. Kate Canterbary created such a rich array of core characters with great depth and nuances and pairs them off with equally complex and multi-layered mates." - Lightning City Book Reviews

"What is especially wonderful about Necessary Restorations is that our hero, Sam, is not the typical swoon-worthy, gorgeous, dark, billionaire who is ripping panties off within seconds."- Tyme4aBookBlog

I love Kate Canterbary’s writing. After book one and two I fell in love with the Walsh siblings. Sam’s book is one of the ones I was most excited to read. Something about him intrigued me from the start. I love a story about a man-whore who finds that one girl who has him change his ways. And that’s exactly what Sam is. A man-whore. He has his reasons, and he embraces his lifestyle.

Sam and Tiel meet in an unusual way. Tiel is such a fun and outspoken heroine, she is hard not to love. She gets Sam to go out of his comfort zone. She takes this man who wears three piece suits and works full time as an architect, only to go to swanky bars to hook up, and she gets him to explore the city. Go to festivals, share her passion of music by seeing all types of live shows. She gets him to embrace life.

Sam and Tiel become fast friends. Friends? With a woman? This is all very new to Sam. But Tiel has this pull that he can’t stay away from. She makes him feel normal. They do all the things normal friends do. They see each other constantly, text constantly, she pretty much becomes the biggest part of his life. But all they are is friends. Friends who kiss, but just friends. At least thats what they keep telling one another.

When friendship isn’t enough for either of them anymore, what happens next? Sam, the self proclaimed man-whore, Tiel the free spirit with no family ties. They are an unlikely pair. I wish I could tell you it was an easy love story for these two, but I’d be lying. Their love story was a bit messy at times. It wasn’t perfect. They don’t want to hurt each other because besides being in a relationship, they are one another’s best friend. But sometimes hurting those you love is inevitable. 

Sam and Tiel.

Necessary Restorations, Kate Canterbary
Genre:  Romance,
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Well, Kate is fast becoming one of my favourite romance authors. I love this sort of romance read, not light and fluffy, impractical and unlikely, but stories that are full of real people with genuine problems. No dippy bimbos or very young billionaires, but characters that are in their twenties/thirties and work – very hard – at what they do. This is the third book I’ve read and whereas in book one I was a bit confused by the back story, how everyone connects and what went on before, each book reveals a little more and its so complex, that I can see now that it’s best revealed a bit at a time, drip by drip, so the reader has time to understand what happened and exactly how it affected each of the siblings, but in very different ways.
Sam – oh Sam...we met him in earlier books as a secondary character, but now he’s number one. I’ve always though he’d be fun, he’s a rep as a manwhore, and yet was constantly berated by his father for being gay – and yet we really don’t know exactly what’s true, or his reasons. Well, finally we learn more about him and he’s an incredibly complex character. He’s a number of genuine health issues, serious problems that connect to what sometimes seems his odd behaviour. Add in that he saw his mother bleed to death giving birth while he was very young, along with his siblings, and that from then on his father hated them all and went from loving to awful, vituperative, cruel mentally and physically, and its easy to see how they became such a tight knit unit, although each have their own oddities.

In the third Walshes book, Sam Walsh is traveling through life being a gigantic manslut in an attempt to protect his know, as you do. Then Tiel comes crashing into this life via runaway elevator. Tiel’s doing the same thing but in different ways (mostly not being free with her favors) and well, romance happens.

The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between

-Love the Walshes: This is only the third book in the series, and the second one I’ve read, but I love this family. Each member has their hidden depths, and each book has revealed a little more of what they went through with their POS father, though even he has his secrets that show why he was such a POS. Ms. Canterbary's writing is even stronger in this entry and I loved that these are fully formed characters, even the supporting players. The work is a believable part of their story, the heroine's multi-cultural and it's all seamlessly integrated into the narrative. Their romance feel as if it's truly unfolding in realistic way, as opposed to alot of romances that can feel as if the leads exist in a vacuum.

-Tiel and Sam are great together: They are funky, damaged, complicated, funny, sexy, quirky and just the best mess. I’m having difficulty using my words here because honestly, I just loved them both.

Tiel’s not just a sunshiny heroine: Tiel is hippy dippy trippy, caustic yet fun, and so scared of being hurt that when her jagged edges are exposed, it actually made me like her more. She would have been too perfect otherwise. She’s easy to fall for and you can completely buy why Sam’s so drawn to her.

-And Sam’s not just a manslut: Sam’s a tougher nut to love, no doubt. When it begins, I’ll admit all I could think of was how big of a dick he could be.
