About the Author

Tracey Alvarez lives in the Coolest Little Capital in the World (a.k.a Wellington, New Zealand). Married to a wonderfully supportive IT guy, she has two teens who would love to be surgically linked to their electronic devices. Fuelled by copious amounts of coffee, she's the author of contemporary romantic fiction set predominantly in New Zealand. Small-towns, close communities, and families are a big part of the heart-warming stories she writes. Oh, and hot, down-to-earth heroes--Kiwi men, in other words. When she's not writing, thinking about writing, or procrastinating about writing, Tracey can be found with her nose in her e-reader, nibbling on smuggled chocolate bars, or bribing her kids to take over the housework.

Wow! What a mind-blowing book! Easily my favorite of all the books I've read in this series so far.

Ready to Burn has everything I adore in a book: Sublime writing, witty dialog, brilliant character development, stunning world building, strong emotions & relationships, lots of hot, steamy romance, and a fast-paced plot. There is nothing I would fault in the slightest.

Del Westlake has burned his bridges in LA so when an opportunity presents itself to go home, he can't turn it down. Especially because it may well allow him restart his chef career in Chicago. Del is hiding behind his fair share of demons and it takes a very special lady to crack his nut. (Ahem!)

Shaye has been one of my fav characters in this series to date so I was really looking forward to reading this book. She is warm but sassy, strong yet vulnerable; particularly to Del's charms.

They spark off each other at the start, and Shaye's nose is understandably out of joint when she finds out Del has been hired temporarily as Head Chef, a position she believes she can easily fill. However, she quickly falls for Del's Hollywood bad-boy charm and is soon in deep over her head.

I loved Del and Shaye as a couple and really enjoyed how Del transformed his whole attitude on life by the end of the book, even opening up to his family about the demons that have been torturing him. He was a great leading man.

I also adored the reality-TV theme, it added an interesting dimension to the story.

There was some really funny, laugh out loud moments in this book, like this bit: "Her revenge was squeezing your bum and letting you put a tongue in her ear? Sounds like cruel and unnecessary punishment."

All in all, a truly amazing read. I'm only sorry I read it so quickly. I wish I could wipe my brain and start over, to relish the enjoyment all over again.

This is an excellent series and I highly recommend it.

I love this book, the third in a series that gets better and better with each book released.

Shaye and Del are fun, fiesty, fiery, damaged, passionate, loyal, in denial and completely perfect for each other. Both are terrified of love and letting go......not that that means there can't be plenty of hot dirty sex....on the counter.... in the kitchen.....in the store cupboard..... in the shower....with frosting and without! But they both shy away from commitment, looking for faults and believing themselves unlovable long term.
As with all the books in the Due South series this one is laugh out loud funny, steam your kindle up sexy, heartwrenchingly sad and beautifully sweet. It is not only the interactions between Shaye and Del that keep the pages turning, but also the support characters both old and new who are witty, interfering and completely outrageous. Once you start you cannot put this book down, you have to keep going to see just how bumpy and full of fireworks their road to a HEA is.

I had already read several of the Due South books, and got very attached to all the family. This is the story of Shaye, the sous chef in the Due South restaurant. The owners brother Del Westlake unwillingly comes back to New Zealand when his budding career as a celebrity chef in Los Angeles is destroyed. I certainly did not warm to him at the start of the story, I understood his problems, but he was taking his distress out on the wrong targets! His character is really well written, I think you are supposed to dislike him at first. And having two hot-tempered chefs in a hot kitchen ... wow, the sparks fly! The happy ever after is very satisfying.
Tracey writes good, honest, well rounded characters, and you can understand the character development as the book progresses. This is why I think I enjoy her books so much.

Having met Shaye in the first two books, and liking her feisty character, I was really looking forward to meeting her love. I was a little concerned that the three threaded storyline was detracting from the build up of passion between the central characters, though I understood the necessity of placing Shaye in a situation where she may be tempted away from the island. I was unsure as to how satisfactorily the resolution would be to the thread around Dels drinking, whether it would be portrayed well or fudged. All in all I was happy with how it was dealt with.
As ever with Traceys books, this is character led, with a cast of three dimensional folk, with shortcomings, humour and buckets of love. It is wonderful to see the developing relationships of characters who found love in earlier books, along with the walk characters we know and have come to love ( the ever present Mrs Taylor, not so much cougar as sabre tooth tiger gets a regular mention if not lines this time around - hey at her age, she wouldn't remember a script!). I was also pleased to find I approved of Shayes happy ever after, Mr Perfect would so not have done for her!
As ever, I was a little sad to read the last page, but not too sad, as I have already downloaded the next in line. I would happily recommend the Due South series to anyone seeking the equivalent of a pint of ice cream in a book. Comfort reading in the extreme, just make sure you have another 'pint' in the 'freezer' for when you finish, because as with ice cream, you can never have too much of Tracey.
