Publisher's Summary

Two lonely hearts.

Just once, she'd like to be someone's first choice. She is strong-willed and spunky, but she is left picking up the pieces from her ex's lies and manipulations and daydreaming about taking a scalpel to his scrotum.

Flying under the radar is what he does best. He is laid back and loyal, but he wants the most off-limits woman in his world, and nothing will ever make that a reality.

An arrangement of mutual benefit.

Two months, four dates. Five, if things go well. Five at the most. But possibly six. Definitely no more than six dates.

Only the appearance of a romantic relationship is required, and they expect nothing more from their time together. There will be none of those benefits involved.

One wild weekend.

After waking up in bed together - very naked and even more hungover - the terms and conditions of their arrangement no longer apply. Now they're faced with something riskier than exposing their fake relationship: letting go of the past and zipping up the future. Some things have to fall apart before they can be put back together.

    "Team Shambles!"

    Oh, how I adored this book! I am a fan of this series, but don't be afraid to jump in here if you have just discovered Kate Canterbary.

    Meeting Riley way back in Underneath it All and following him along throughout the book series, I thought I knew him, and maybe even how his story might play out. We have known him as the loveable younger brother, the not-quite professional architect, and sports enthusiast to name a few. But in Preservation, he has matured and grown in many ways, and we really get to know the real Riley: hot, dominant, sexy, funny, growly, and even a little wonky. I love that his Someone Special is a little of each of those qualities too. The build-up of the romantic relationship between the two is a slow-burn in all the best ways. Once they turned up the heat, and we really got to see the chemistry between the two, I was completely sold. Riley was the perfect man for this woman. I loved that he complimented her quirks, knew her needs, and fought hard for her. Riley is definitely a special one, just like ALL of the characters in the series.

    As with ALL the Walsh series, Christian Fox & Lucy Rivers do an OUTSTANDING job in narrating the book. They both excel in giving each character their own voice, that stands out apart from the others. Highly recommend!

    "Finally RISD!"

    I absolutely adore this series and there was a lot of expectation for RISD's story and Kate Canterbary did not disappointed

    Riley Walsh got the story he deserved and the Special Someone he deserved. This audio had everything I have come to expect as a given with Kate's writing: awesome dialogue, lots of laugh, great banter, some angst and plenty of super sexy times.

    The amazing duo of Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox were outstanding. I love how they find new "voices" for each new character they narrate

    This is one of the best audiobook series EVER!

    "Riley grows up!!!"

    I love this series. I've read and listened to each book and they just keep getting better. Mr. Fox really does up his game in this narration as does Ms. Rivers!!!

    "Can't get enough of the Walshes!"

    Can't express how much I loved this! I read the book with my eyeballs twice before the audio came out and I wasn't sure that I could love it anymore but performances of Lucy and Christian never cease to amaze!

    "6 Stars!!"



    This Walsh family just does something to me!! They tie my heart up in knots. I fall in love more and more with each book.

    "It never escaped my notice that Riley was dealing with some sh*!. He wanted the world to believe he was all easy smiles and goofy commentary, but those were the layers he used to gain distance."

    Riley is not the youngest sibling, but he is the one who is 'babied' the most. He has survived quite a bit and is still finding his way out.

    "I liked her, even if we couldn't decide whether we were running toward each other or away."

    This author is a complete master of sexual tension, dirty talk and such fun banter! I don't ever want this series to end.

    "A gasp slipped from my lips when I caught sight of his c**k. It was magnificent. I would know. It wasn't something I listed on my résumé, but I was a c**k connoisseur."

    I waited for this book to be released on audiobook because the entire series are just amazing to listen to and I was definitely not disappointed!!!
    -6 Stars!!

    "Riley and Honeybee"

    I read this book back in May and could not wait for the audio Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox are my favorite narrators. Hearing the audio for Preservation made me laugh and cry just like the book. These two narrators are perfect together. They never disappoint and always bring there all in their performances.

    Story
    "Riley & his honeybee! "
    Where does Preservation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top! The entire Walsh Series is at the very top of my audiobooks. I love them so much that I have re-listened to them each countless times!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is such a hard question! I love each character for who they are and for what they bring to the storylines. Throughout all the books, I have always said my favorite character was whoever's book I was currently reading/listening. Buy after reading Preservation, I think Riley has taken that top spot. He has finally grown up and found his spot in the Walsh tribe and found his match, and she is the perfect match for him! Kate did an outstanding job with their story!


    What does Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the way they bring the characters to life. They both do an amazing job giving each character in the Walsh Series their own voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, cried and wanted to throw my phone across the room at times. But I knew to press on and let Riley and his honeybee tell their story, even if I did want to reach in and smack them a few times. ;)

    "Simply the best"

    It's no secret I love the Walsh series of books by Kate Canterbary but adding the audio version takes it to another level. I felt all of the love and struggle Riley and Alex endured throughout this story.
    As ever Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox make for a dream team of narrators. They are always excellent.
    Fantastic all around.
