    • Hide Your Heart is book one in the Far North series by Tracey Alvarez. This is my first book by Tracey and I absolutely am in love with it. I was drawn in from the very first page when I first met Lauren and her sweet adorable little boy, Drew. And of course the oh so sexy Nate.Lauren Taylor is now living in a small, rural New Zealand town with her four year old son, Drew. But this wasn’t always where she lived. Lauren had a very different life in New York, first as a famous model and then as [...]


    • When I read the blurb, I was super excited to read this because…well, I’m a photographer and I’m a sucker for anything having to do with it. I clearly need to start showing some restraint because it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. It wasn’t bad, just didn’t live up to my personal expectations, so I’m not holding it against the author. While hiding out in New Zealand from a past she’d like to forget about, Lauren literally finds herself in a jam, needing the help of a compl [...]


    • For me this was just an ok read. Hide Your Heart is a sweet contemporary romance; however it has no suspense, adventure, extreme angst, or mystery in it--just a sweet contemp romance. The adrenaline junkie in me needs something more than that. If you really like sweet contemp romance, you may enjoy this book more than I did.Lauren Knight is an ex New York runway model who divorced her abusive husband and returned home to New Zealand with her 4-year-old son to live in hiding from the tabloid pres [...]


    • 3.7 starsWonderful characters, likable, nice people you can't help but enjoying spending time with. The setting was more inland country than here other series which was all about the water. This story had a more mature story of a woman hiding from an abusive husband and public life, a little boy who wakes from nightmares of past horrors, and a good man who hasn't found any reason to put down roots.This was the second book in the New Zealand romance starter set by the same author. I enjoyed it al [...]


    • This is book one in Tracey's new Far North series and as a massive fan of her Due South series I was really looking forward to getting stuck into this book.Hide Your Heart tells the story of Lauren and Nate.

She will do everything to protect her young son Drew, including ignoring her growing attraction to hot newcomer Nate.Nate is a photojournalist who has purchased the nearby house as an investment.

    • Okay. SO we have this physically and emotionally scarred woman - with her four year old son in tow - who is fleeing from her abusive ex-husband. She meets her new neighbour, Nate, who looks similar to her ex. How would you really expect her to act? *I* would go for the quiet, I don't want to be noticed, forget you ever saw me approach, wouldn't you?Instead, she steps up as 'alpha-female' determined to show him just who is boss. (rolls eyes here. I LIKE strong women, but not ones who think its a [...]


    • Escape into My Reads Book BlogThis book was such a joy to read that I easily fell in love with it.

    • Hide Your Heart is the first in a new series by Tracey Alvarez, Far North. It is a contemporary romance set in the beautiful New Zealand Northland. I loved the first chapter, it drew me in and I was soon anticipating a good read.Lauren has escaped from a tough situation with her little boy Drew, all of four years old. She may have been a top model, but she is no simpering female. She knows her way around the inside of a car, is a great mother and can use a chain saw with the best of them. While [...]


    • Reading a book by Tracey Alvarez is like taking a mini vacation to my imagined little happy place in New Zealand. I've never been to New Zealand but thanks to her, I feel like I go there every time I read one of her books and once I finish it, my mind will still keep wandering off to that awesome place in my head. Just like a vacation though, it's never long enough! My favorite thing about this book was the heroine. I loved Lauren so much, which is different because I usually tend to like the gu [...]


    • Thanks to the author for an ARC to read and review. I have been a long time fan of this author since her first book! I received it as an ARC and it blew me away.

Once Lauren was model walking the cat walks of New York, London, and Paris but after a horrible marriage she prefers living near her brother in the backwoods away from the limelight. There she meets her neighbo [...]

    • Such a sweet read! I loved the characters--Lauren and Nate, naturally, but also Lauren's brother Todd and sister-in-law Kathy and Drew, of course--he is absolutely adorable, with his monkey-roni and the Superman picture--too cute! :)Lauren's fighting some pretty big demons--she and her son escaped an abusive relationship and a life she'd never asked for in New York City, seeking refuge in rural New Zealand.

    • I read several books a week and often can't remember them the next day. However, there are some authors whose books, and the books themselves, that stick in my head for a longtime after. Tracey Alvarez is one of those authors and "Hide Your Heart" is one of those books. My only problem with it was that it was too short. As tightly wound as Lauren is when she first encounters Nate, I expected her to take longer to let him get close. But as I read on, I realized that she didn't have a chance. She' [...]


    • Lauren and her 4 year old son, Drew, ran from Drew's abusive father two years ago. Now she's living in Bounty Bay, New Zealand.

    • "Easy" 5 stars!!! Amazing booook! I really enjoyed it.All of the characters were so perfect and NOT annoying or a push-over, and it was just great. You had your heroine, Lauren, who was crazy strong and determined. Your hero, Nate, hot, loving, and determined. And then Dreeeeewwwww Perfect little sweet, awesome, and fun Drew.I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would've considered thinking higher of it if the ending didn't feel so rushed to me. Their HEA didn't seem to flow, but I can look past it. [...]

    • I loved Ms. Alvarez'sDue South series, so I knew I'd love this one too and I did. Lauren Taylor was a beautiful model who lived in New York with her rich husband until she wasn't. Domestic violence ripped her from her unhappy home and sent in hiding to her home in New Zealand with her four year old son, Drew. Lauren is living "behind the scenes" so to speak so that she isn't captured by the paparazzi and splashed all over the news again when Nate Fraser rescues her from the ditch she finds herse [...]


    • ForgetfulOn March 1st I bought the Down Under Starter set which included Hide Your Heart. Forgetful me on Sept 4th purchased it again. When I finished the starter set I decided to go with the Stewart Island 1st and fell in love with the writer's love of New Zealand.
