5 stars. Ms. Alvarez has done it again, with incredible, if not one-of-a-kind storytelling!
~ InD'tale Magazine.
From the Inside Flap
He moved like a much smaller, lighter man. A runner or a gymnast--all coiled power that could switch from casual swagger to lightning-fast action in a heartbeat.
She licked dry lips as he stalked closer, a witty response swallowed by the slow burn kindling low in her body. Both English and Italian deserted her, and she simply drank him in. Too good-looking, too confident--too much of everything that eroded her determination to resist him.
Bracing her spine as he stood alongside her, she waited for the punch line or another double entendre.
But he said nothing.
Just gazed down with a small half smile. Which was another word for a smirk--a "baby, you know you're impressed" smirk.
She fanned herself with the edge of the board. Did she need a reminder of why she hated Alpha males? After growing up in a home full of five bull-headed Alpha brothers, no, she did not.
Ben's arm brushed hers as he moved to let Noah past. Beneath her summery dress, her nipples puckered against her lacy bra cup.
Oh, no! Not again.
Kezia hugged the clipboard to her chest and closed her eyes. Please St. Paula, let the clipboard base be wide enough to cover my boobs.
A soft, rumbling sound next to her--Ben chuckling.
Sweet Mother! Had she spoken aloud? A quick glance confirmed her worst fears unfounded. Ben stared blandly into the crowd, as if he had no idea how much his closeness affected her.
Honestly, she should ask the Patron Saint of Widows for more than boob coverage. She needed strength--brute strength--to resist either the urge to murder the man, or the almost-as-terrifying urge to jump his bones until he begged for mercy.

The hero is a confirmed bachelor. One day an old one-night stand drops off a daughter he never knew he had. The mother is a total flake and she leaves the kid because she has something better to do. He hasn't a clue what to do or how to do it regarding kids. he does try though. He wants to do well for this child. His next door neighbor is the heroine. She is a single mother and she knows it all. She puts him down at every turn because he is not the perfect dad and should know what to do regarding the child. She just pissed me off.
I could not stand her or her attitude. The story has a good plot line, I loved the hero. The children in the story were even good characters. it was just he heroine I couldn't handle. I would recommend that you read the book and see how it all plays out for you.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
Ben is the epitome of the clueless male, but I couldn't help but fall in love with him. He went from zero to hero in Jade's eyes in such a short time, and in mine, also. Kezia and her adorable 9 year old daughter, Zoe has seen more than their share of trouble and sorrow in their lives lately. Moving was supposed to be a way of starting over on a new outlook on life for them, but they didn't bargain for the hunky guy next door or his adorable daughter becoming part of their new lives.
It was so much fun to watch he way Jade and Zoe become the best of friends and they play matchmaker to their parents. They were both very cute! I loved Ben's sisters; I thought they were a real hoot. I even loved his stern mother, but Marci....not so much.
I did have some trouble with the way Ben was in the beginning; I understand where his head was at, I really do.... but the way he talked about Jade and to her even... if a kid is yours, even if you have no experience with children; you do not make them feel unwanted... her mother done that enough as it was... and Jade's mother Marci.... omg, could there be a more immature, selfish woman?
I loathed her from the very bottom of my heart; she was a terrible mother and just an overall terrible person all around....
Kezia was incredibly sweet and such a good mother; I couldn't imagine the kind of life she had and the things she went through as a young mother with a sick child, but then to be brushed off by her husband and then have him die that very night? That sucks..... I liked her and I loved the relationship she and Zoe had as well as the relationship between them and Jade... it was very sweet and I'm glad Jade had someone to be there for her when her parents were so clearly not...
It took me a while to warm up to Ben and I guess I did eventually, I'm glad Jade "grew on him" .... THat's better than nothing I guess but it's still just a few notches up above the terrible mother was..
And the ending I didn't like because for him to even entertain the idea of marrying that woman just so he could have a relationship with his daughter....it was the stupidest thing he could have ever even thought of and of course Kezia wouldn't wanna be second runner up... that whole part was just ridiculous and insane.... I hated it and was glad when it was over....
I'm rethinking the next one but we shall see.
Ben had to grow up too fast and put aside his own dreams when his father died. He took care of his mom and sister the best he could, never realizing that while actions can speak louder than words; words are important as well. It took an unexpected little girl entering his life to open up the world for him. Joining him as he learned to live and love was an unexpected pleasure. Obligation turned into the most important honor allowed and led to the perfect match.
Kez is a young widow who has already faced a parent's worst nightmare of a sick child by herself. She has rebuilt their lives in Oban and is surrounded by close girlfriends. She is happy with her life and prepared to remain alone with her daughter providing all of the love she thinks she needs.
Ben and Kez, Jade and Zoe. It's not every book that can focus on 2 single parents and 2 little girls and be as entertaining as this one. There's humor and heartbreak, misunderstandings and passion. Tracey Alvarez takes 4 people/ 2 pairs and fits them together to take make a family that's so much more than just the pieces. Tracey takes the everyday and makes it extraordinary.
Every parent can relate to this story. Every woman wants a man to prove himself like Ben does, every mother wants a dad that can be trusted with her baby's heart. When you find a man that can do both, you know that you have found forever. Ben and Kez can have forever if they can be brave enough. Wonderful read!
