Caught – hook, line and sinker

Fresh Catch by Kate Canterbary


Like so many readers out there, I have an incredibly long TBR and a whole heap of one-click authors … and I tell myself that I won’t add any more … and I yet again I broke that promise … but OMG I am so glad I did. Kate Canterbary is an author so many of my book buddies – and other authors I love – have raved about and I kept saying I would get around to reading her books. An opportunity came up to read her most recent release, Fresh Catch, and so I thought why not?!? And I’m so very very glad I did.

When I discovered this was an mm romance I was thrilled – since this is one of my all time favourite tropes. And the story of Silicon Valley billionaire Cole and lobster farmer Owen is nothing short of fabulous. Despite their differences, at the heart of this story is two guys who are desperate for love and yet neither feel deserving. Kate weaves a story that not only highlights some important social issues …

“Eventually, there’d be a time when we led with curiosity rather than assumptions about sexual identity, race, faith, ability…all of it.”

but also brings to life to absolutely gorgeous characters in Cole and Owen – two men who you feel like good friends by the time you are done with the story. Their quirks are loveable, their personalities authentic and the the love that blossoms is one that is such a joy to watch. Add to this a small town with characters you won’t to know more about (and thankfully we will get to know more about Annette and Jackson at the end of the month!!) and Fresh Catch is one story that I’m sure to read again. I also have to mention the chapter titles and definitions because these totally helped to make the story … plus who knew so many boating terms could have such great innuendo.

Well it’s safe to say I’ve found myself another one click author – and I’m off to binge read ALL the books because I just cannot get enough of Kate Canterbary!!!
