It's all the little things—the action plans, the long-kept promises—that started falling apart when my life slipped into controlled chaos.
After I met Matthew Walsh.
I couldn't decide whether I wanted to run screaming or rip his pants off, and most days I wanted a little of both. If I was being honest with myself, it was rip his pants off, ride him like a workhorse, and then run screaming.
A rebellious streak ran through Lauren Halsted. It was fierce and unrelentingly beautiful, and woven through too many good girl layers to count, and she wasn't letting anyone tell her what to do.
Unless, of course, she was naked.
She wasn't looking for me and I sure as shit wasn't looking for her, but we found each other anyway and now we were locked in a battle of wills, waiting for the other to blink.
Sometimes the universe conspires to bring people together. Other times, it throws people down a flight of stairs and leaves them in a bruised and bloodied heap.

UNDERNEATH IT ALL by Kate Canterbary is the first book in her series THE WALSHES. I was really surprised how in the first sentence of the book, I was all in. I mean it took my breath away for a second. Written in duel point of view, UNDERNEATH IT ALL was beautifully executed and a great read.
Lauren is a hard working and driven school teacher and will do anything to achieve her dreams of opening a school. She has spent the last year of her life pursuing it and is not about to throw it away over a boy. Matt is an architect and a workaholic. Neither of these two has time nor are looking for any kind of relationship at all, this being all true until they meet each other. Matt goes about showing her how he being a distraction is a good thing.
Lauren and Matt are totally relatable characters and I found it refreshing that Lauren was as driven and passionate about her work. Matt was a total babe, hot and sexy. I really enjoyed how Matt perused Lauren. He had to work hard for her and she was not an easy catch. As much as I loved the pursuit, I thought it went on for a little too long. I mean how much more does a man have to show you before you melt. I enjoyed it though and I loved how they were both funny and witty.
The sex scenes were hot and steamy and defiantly worth the read. Also, the families on both sides are really interesting to interact with. I loved their involvement.
All in all, I really enjoyed UNDERNEATH IT ALL and I would recommend as a fun, sweet read.
