by Tracey Alvarez

Summary from Goodreads:

DRAWING ME IN is the seventh story in Tracey Alvarez’s best-selling Due South books set against the stunning backdrop of Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you like Jill Shalvis, Marie Force, or Bella Andre, then you’ll enjoy diving into these heart-warming, sexy & seductive small-town romances with authentic men and women struggling to find their special someone.

Meet Harley and Bree…

She’s drawn by his wild spirit…
Bree Findlow’s ordered world slides into chaos when the man who broke her heart arrives back in their small New Zealand home-town. But with years of avoidance tactics under her belt, she figures ignoring the sexy-as-sin artist whose touch colors her red hot, is a practical solution. Until her mother arrives with an announcement jeopardizing Bree’s livelihood, and her sister also shows up…along with the nine-year-old secret Bree has kept hidden from everyone. Especially the father of that secret.

He’s drawn by her quiet strength…
Harley Komeke is back in Oban to rest, regroup and hopefully re-find his missing muse. He also isn’t against rediscovering every inch of the icy-cool treat, Bree Findlow—after falling under her spell in what felt like a lifetime ago at Art College. His pursuit takes an unexpected turn when, hello, insta-fatherhood. Reeling from shock, Harley knows he should despise the woman who allowed her sister to informally adopt their son, but he can’t. Because Bree, more than anyone, understands that with his past, he never, ever wanted to risk having a wife and family.

They’re drawn to each other over and over…
Like the formidable tides that surge around Stewart Island, Bree and Harley can’t resist the heat generated between them. Push and pull, kiss and retreat, touch after breathless touch—until a moment’s recklessness has consequences neither can brush aside.

Passion won’t hold them together when past fears threaten to tear them apart.

TSR My Review

It’s that time of the year again! Time for my imaginary New Zealand vacation, courtesy of Tracey Alvarez. Drawing Me In features Harley and Bree, a couple that I wasn’t very familiar with (I’m not sure if I just don’t remember them being mentioned in the previous books or if they weren’t a big part of the community at that time).  Anyway, throughout the course of this series,I have really enjoyed seeing all the couples’ relationships progress.  However, I must admit that I liked the fact that I didn’t know much about Harley and Bree. It felt like a fresh start but with the comfort of being surrounded by all the other characters I know and love.

When I started reading, I wasn’t too sure I would like Harley and Bree.  Harley on the one hand has issues with commitment and makes it very clear that all he wants from Bree or any other woman is no strings attached sex.  He does not want a relationship and is not willing to settle down.  Bree initially struck me as a little stuck up so I was a bit hesitant about her.  It wasn’t long though before they both won me over and I became totally invested in their relationship.  Tracey Alvarez really knows how to write these love stories because if we’re being completely honest here, I can’t believe this is book #7 and I still haven’t gotten tired of the Due South series.

Another amazing 5 star book for this collection.
