The Space Between Blog Tour (Review+Excerpt+Giveaway)



REVIEW 
I'm a big fan of office relationships! It's one of my many guilty pleasures! I wasn't sure what to expect with this one because I had never read of a book by Kate Canterbary but I was pleasantly surprised! I truly enjoyed reading this one.  

Andy is starting a new apprenticeship under the man who has influenced her work throughout the years. She's instantly attracted to him when she sees him but knows it's horrible idea to act on that attraction. Andy was hard to like, in my opinion. She's was a little obnoxious. She would go out with her "friends" but she would be thinking how she was wasting her time talking to them. RUDE, I know. You either like her or not. I didn't, but that didn't keep me from liking the story. 

Patrick doesn't want to want Andy, but he does. And badly. He tries to be mean to her but that doesn't work out. Patrick likes Andy because she challenges him in every way possible. He has his own issues with his father and siblings, but Andy completes him. They make a really great couple! I thought it was cute how he couldn't say no to her. I need a man like that! ;)

Overall, this was a very relaxing read. I recommend this for anyone who wants to read a good, uncomplicated (for the most part) novel. It was flawless written, with a strong plot! I need to read more Kate Canterbary novels! 


EXCERPT 
"You've been staring at me for two hours." Andy crossed her arms over her chest as she leaned against the sink. It was an observation delivered with the same tenor she used to order an iced green tea. Lemon, no sweeteners.

God, I wanted her. I wanted all of her, and I knew at that moment I'd give up most anything to get out of my Bermuda Triangle and have her.

"Yeah, I was wondering…did you decide if you have room in your weekend for fried clams?"

"I don't know yet."

"When will you know?" I asked.

"When you tell me why you have me under surveillance."

I glanced at the expanse of bare skin from the plunging neckline of her sweater up to her jaw, and I remembered the way her body reacted to my teeth on her ear. Setting my beer bottle down, I pushed away from the wall and approached Andy until we were a breath apart.

I shrugged. "I stare because you don't give me much else." My knuckles grazed her upper arm and I waited for her to push me away or tell me to stop.

"You walked away from me," she said hotly, her head cocked.

That's how she saw it? Fantastic.

I lifted my hands to her face and kissed her, pouring all of my frustration and misery and desire into the tangle of our lips. I tasted the tart cherriness of Andy. My hands went to her hair, angling her head to take more, taste more, tell more. I needed her to know everything I wasn't able to put into words, all the things I couldn't explain or understand myself.

It wasn't enough to weave my fingers through her hair and consume her mouth. I wanted her skin in my hands. Her waist was slim and silken where my fingers kneaded her beneath her sweater. She must have craved the same contact because her fingers slipped between my sweater and shirt. As she pried open the buttons of my shirt, her touch was a searing reminder of what I missed this past week.
Breaking our connection, I gazed into Andy's heated eyes and smiled when I saw her beautiful and flustered. She was different, at once dark and light, and a warm flush hinted at her cheeks.

"There you are," I whispered, my hands framing her face, my thumbs stroking her delicate cheekbones.
