Description

Hiding in plain sight just got complicated…
Lauren Taylor and her young son have fled back to her hometown to escape fame’s cruel spotlight, and all she wants to do is start over. No press, no pictures, no problem. Until Nate Fraser, a sexy photojournalist, moves in next door. Resisting his kisses and keeping her secrets soon become the hardest thing she’s ever done.
Nate’s got one foot out the door and one last assignment before he resumes his nomadic lifestyle, camera in hand. His every instinct screams that his beautiful but unwelcoming neighbour is hiding something. He couldn’t care less when it’s difficult enough to keep his eyes—and lips—off of her. No matter how much Nate attempts to keep his heart out of reach, he’s drawn into her life. But a guy like him can never have what he wants most. Can he?

    I love reading about small town romance. The back drop of this story is amazing. And I want to book my next trip to New Zealand. If your looking for a sweet read with a bit of spice, then look no further, this is it. This is a wonderful romance. Definitely want to continue with the series. This author knows what she is doing. Great storytelling that captures your attention with the very first paragraph. She is now one of my favorites. Looking forward to reading more.

    I loved this book. The author took a damaged heart and a closed heart to see if these characters could find love. The book was intriguing.

    Loved the Book! Can't believe I sat and sobbed when Nate was saying " Good Bye" to Drew! But, don't get me wrong this story wasn't sad but, just very touching! Some authors story's I just want to get to the end but, this one had me cherish each word and made me love every word! Tracey makes me feel the place she is at and also feel how they are thinking and feeling! I would definitely recommend reading this book!
  • Great start to a new series

    Tracey Alvarez has a new fan. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own. Tracey sets her book in New Zealand and incorporates some words in Maori, one of the countries official languages. She does provide a glossary in the back, which I love. The story of Lauren and Nate is endearing. Lauren must learn to trust her heart and hear safety to a man embroiled in scandal. Nate, who never had a stable home life, must discover the meaning of home and family. This is a heartwarming romance novel. It made me laugh. It made me cry. I will definitely be adding her books to my library.
  • A definite addition to my library - 41/2 STARS

    I actually read the first of Ms Alvarez’s books from Love Down Under Boxset from the Due South Series and I got caught in her ability to pull you in and I instantly went looking for her other books, I love a book that is full and yup I’m a romance gyal… can’t get enough of them and this book surely delivers although you feel sometimes to knock the guy in his head for being silly. The characters are well rounded and you fall in love with little Drew as he as any innocent child does, wraps his little hands around you. The classic man is an island unto himself and for himself … until he finds the right woman is well done as Nate had no chance. He is one of the good guys who is all protective and alpha but didn’t stand a chance against a troubled but sweet lady her precocious 4yr old son and a rottweiler who is all bark and no bite. The only reason I held back a half star is because it was a bit too short and I would have liked a bit more description of Bounty Bay scenics allowing me to be there too. A little more on the Maori lifestyle in the Christmas scene as their tradition would have been welcome also. That said I have Ms Alvarez on my FAVs list as she lends such a nice style to her books and you can relax and enjoy a good read with an effortless style. Love me some Tracey Alvarez!!

    Hide Your Heart is another great book by Tracey Alvarez. She transports the reader to the picturesque New Zealand countryside and tells a beautiful story of finding unlikely love. Tracey does a great job of developing not only the main characters but also the supporting characters which helps draw the reader in. This story was even more compelling because it was a love story involving three people. The sweet way Drew and Nate became friends and "fell in love" was as integral to the story as Lauren and Nate's love story. I would very much enjoy reading more about what happens to Lauren, Nate and Drew.
