REVIEW – WILD AT HEART (Wild, #2) by K.A. Tucker

SYNOPSIS

From the internationally best-selling author of The Simple Wild comes the continuation of a woman’s journey to Alaska and a life she never imagined for herself.

Calla Fletcher returns to Toronto a different person, struggling to find direction and still very much in love with the rugged bush pilot she left behind. When Jonah arrives on her doorstep with a proposition she can’t dismiss, she takes the leap and rushes back to Alaska to begin their exciting future together.

But Calla soon learns that even the best intentions can lead to broken promises, and that compromise comes with a hefty price—a log cabin in interior rural Alaska that feels as isolating as the western tundra.

With Jonah gone more than he’s home, one neighbor who insists on transforming her into a true Alaskan, and another who seems more likely to shoot her than come to her aid, Calla grapples with forging her own path. In a world with roaming wildlife that has her constantly watching over her shoulder and harsh conditions that stretch far beyond the cold, dark, winter months, just stepping outside her front door can be daunting.

This is not the future Calla had in mind, leaving her to fear that perhaps she is doomed to follow in her mother’s fleeing footsteps after all.

I rush toward him, but hesitate when I get there—part of me wants to throw myself at him, the other part is terrified that he’ll hold me at arm’s length, that’ it’s too late, that the slope we fell down yesterday was too steep, the climb up too slippery.

 

 

 

“Wild” is by far my favorite K.A. Tucker series! ”WILD AT HEART” reunites us with Calla and Jonah. They are about to embark on their new life together as a couple in the rural town of “Trapper’s Crossing” in Alaska. Calla has left her family, friends and the life of a city girl behind to follow the rugged pilot who captured her heart when she spent a few months in Alaska getting to know her estranged father who was dying from cancer. The first book was magical. I went into book two with high expectations and the author did not let me down one bit. She takes us on another journey with the sheltered city girl who somehow finds herself in the same cold and isolating locale that ended up destroying her parents’ marriage.

Calla and Jonah buy a home that sits on 100 acres of land. Jonah’s trying to get his new business going and Calla is putting all of her energy into making their new house a home. Promises made are soon broken and Calla is starting to experience many lonely nights while Jonah takes on jobs that keep him away from home for days on end. She makes friends with some of the eccentric townsfolk who end up helping her in ways she never could have imagined. It is the bonds that she makes with these people which tugs on the heartstrings and gives this story so much depth and increased my enjoyment one hundred times over!! My hope is that our journey is not over with these amazing group of characters!

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5++++
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
