They’ll either melt or raze their lives to the ground…
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 leukaemia, 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 cosy home and family. And he sure isn’t the big teddy-bear Kezia Murphy, the woman he secretly fantasises 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. 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.

"Just as the must-read series of Donna Kauffman (The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove), Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor), Terri Osburn (Anchor Island), Marie Force (The McCarthys of Gansett Island), Sherryl Woods (Chesapeake Shores) have entranced me with their seaside settings and caring communities - so has Tracey Alvarez - and I'm adding her series to my must-read shelf too."~ Fab Fantasy Fiction

Melting into you
Out of this world book.Good story line not to cheesy very gripping.Couldnot put my book down.Finished it so up to the next title.Thank you
Very enjoyable story
Very enjoyable story with believable characters and a happy ending. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
Heart strings will be tugged in this single parents romance!
I received a free copy of this book and I’m so glad I’ve finally gotten around to reading it. Having first met Ben, Kezia and Zoe in In Too Deep, they were intriguing characters who I’m glad got a story of their own.
Melting into You will tug at your heart strings almost from the get go and throughout, with different characters getting you at one point or another. This to me was a clear indicator of Tracey Alvarez’s ability to develop believable characters with real emotions. The challenges that are faced by all aren’t easy to deal with but the way they are handled is with sensitivity, delicacy and fittingly at times, humour.
I also liked how the author didn’t have them ’falling in love’ instantly, making the story more believable to the reader, especially with Kezia’s history of previously being married and everything she has been through. The reluctance didn’t feel like it was just the author’s way of dragging out something, which can often feel like the case with some stories.
If you are looking for a HEA, standalone, single parents romance, with a great writing style that will draw you in, I strongly recommend giving Melting into You a read as it is definitely a different take on single parent romances. While this can be read as part of a series, if you are a reader is not into reading a whole series, I can assure all is tied up between Ben and Kezia in this book alone. Personally, I look forward to reading the rest of this series.
