The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker _ Book Review


Amazon | Goodreads

Calla Fletcher wasn’t even two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when Calla learns that Wren’s days may be numbered, she knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this rugged environment, Jonah—the unkempt, obnoxious, and proud Alaskan pilot who helps keep her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. Soon, she finds herself forming an unexpected bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago. It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.


[I recieved an ARC from netgalley for an honest review]


 I am not sure how I have gone through life and not read a single K.A. Tucker novel. The Simple Wild wrecked me and I loved every minute of it. I honestly can’t come up with one thing I didn’t like about this story.

I have so many thoughts and feeling about this book but I feel like I can’t say most of it without spoilers. Therefore, I will be short and sweet. The characters, all of them, from Calla and Jonah to Wren and Agnes were so complete and well-rounded. You felt all their frustrations, sadness, anger and happiness. K.A. Tucker brought these characters to life in a beautiful and real way.

Calla and Jonah are angsty, steamy and adorable together when they finally let their walls down. Jonah is one of my favorite types of man, a blue eyed bearded viking and just thinking of him has me fanning myself hehe The chemistry between them is hard for them to ignore and it’s hard to watch their bond grow knowing the future for them is so unknown.

This book is going to stick with me for a while and I will be definitely recommending it everyone !! I can’t wait to read more of K.A. Tuckers books because she is such a talented writer and The Simple Wild was perfect !
