“I also sensed the tectonic shift somewhere deep inside – my time in Alaska had changed me in ways I couldn’t pinpoint but also couldn’t ignore. Who I was and who I am now seem like two different people.”
Thank you Social Butterfly PR for gifting me a copy of one of my most anticipated reads of 2020!
“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.”
First, let me begin by saying that if you haven’t had an opportunity to read The Simple Wild then please don’t read Wild at Heart…yet. These books are meant to be read in order if you don’t read them in order then you will be confused and also a bit disappointed because you missed out on a phenomenal first book with some superb character development.
Now, let me get into my thoughts on Wild at Heart. I didn’t think it would be possible for me to fall anymore in love with Calla and Jonah— but, I was proven wrong. I devoured this book in no time; I actually could’ve finished it in 24 hours but I forced myself to savor every beautifully written page. Jonah is my favorite book boyfriend and I truly don’t expect anyone to replace him, ever.
K.A. Tucker had me wanting to pack my bags and head for the Alaskan Wild. Every page was written in such exquisite detail that the entire book came to life before me.
I will admit that Wild at Heart had a different feel to it but that’s because this book wasn’t written about Calla and Jonah falling in love – it was written to show the evolution of their love. The Simple Wild was full of palpable chemistry between the two characters; we read along as they grew from despising one another to reading along as they fell in love. Wild at Heart shows the reader what happens to Calla and Jonah once they have fallen in love and their lives begin to transform and grow together. It was perfect.
I highly recommend Wild at Heart! I am counting down the minutes until I get to read about where Calla and Jonah go next.
Thank you, K.A. Tucker and Social Butterfly PR for the opportunity to read this fantastic story. Wild at Heart was released on February 18th and is available to order now! But, don’t forget, you must read The Simple Wild first.
