About the book
Big, sexy men who don’t relate well to kids need not apply…
Kezia Murphy plays her widow card well. When you don’t trust people not to let you down, it’s easier to not get involved—and getting involved with a man who makes her skin sizzle just by looking at him would be una pazzia—crazy! Four years ago while Kezia’s daughter, Zoe, battled leukemia, a tragic accident stole her husband’s life. Starting over in the little town of Oban where she’s adopted into the close-knit community on Stewart Island, Kezia and her daughter are all the family the other needs. Except Zoe yearns for more.
New Zealand’s worst candidate for instant fatherhood…
Ben doesn’t do gooey emotional stuff. He doesn’t do cozy home and family. And he sure isn’t the big teddy-bear Kezia Murphy, the woman he secretly fantasizes about thinks he is. So when Jade, his surprise eight-year-old daughter arrives on his doorstep, he’s a D-minus student struggling to pass a crash course in parenting.
They’ll either melt or raze their lives to the ground…
When the sparks of attraction between Kezia and Ben fan into an inferno, Ben doesn’t know how much longer the layers of resistance around his heart can resist melting into the gooey mess he fears. The more he fights it the harder it is to make the choice that will destroy the family he now longs to claim.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is well written and the tension, hook, inciting incident, build-up, and plot point in act one was very well written. It had me lost in the storyline. I also enjoyed the other two acts as much but I was hooked by act one already.
I was moaning at the characters for choices and face planting my hand due to some of the decisions made by Ben and Kezia and wanted to smack them upside the head with a book.
I also loved the way that Tracey detailed certain actions, objects, and moments. Very well done. A solid romance. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a mouth-watering romance.
It left me with a happy feeling of love and awww.
I gave this book a 5/5 star rating.
