Rough-Sketch-ebook cover

TITLE: Rough Sketch

AUTHOR: Kate Canterbary

SERIES: Talbott’s Cove — interconnected standalones

RELEASE DATE: Tuesday, October 29

GENRE: Erotic Romance

TROPES: Enemies-to-lovers, workplace romance



Smart, successful, and sitting pretty at the top of her game, Neera Malik has it all figured out.

Save for the small issue of Gustavo Guillmand.

The artist with a cult—and Instagram—following has a problem and it’s not his preference for shirtless selfies. 

No, he has an attitude problem, a minding his own business problem, an infuriatingly sexy problem. 

They can’t stand each other and they can’t stay away from each other. 


Kate Canterbary is an author that you will want to read anything and everything she writes. This book was first featured on the Read Me Romance podcast. If you listened to the podcast, in this book you get MORE of Neera and Gus. This book is a novella. Even though it is shorter than her typical books it packs A LOT into fewer pages. You still feel like you get a full story, and oh what a story it is!

If you have read any of the Talbott’s Cove series, Neera was introduced to us in Fresh Catch. She is the no-nonsense, take-charge assistant of Cole. As corporate and put-together that is Neera, Gus is the complete opposite as a free spirited, talented artist. On paper they couldn’t be more different, but they are exactly what each of them need. There are so many layers to each of these characters. You want to get to know them. As with all of this author’s books, you just feel smarter after you read them. She has a way of telling us stories about places, foods, history, industries, etc that you just want to know more about. She weaves this knowledge and captivating characters into a story that you just want to be immersed in.

On top of this enthralling story, the steaminess and chemistry is off the chart. In her other books she’s written some hot and sexy scenes, but in this book she has one of the hottest and dirtiest scenes I’ve ever read. It’s worth reading just for that.

If you’ve read the Talbott’s Cove series, we get to check in with everyone. If you haven’t, don’t worry, this is a complete standalone, but you do a glimpse of the couples in the rest of the series. I cannot recommend this book, this series, or this author enough. She is top on my list of automatically-one-click-will-read-anything-she-writes authors.
