The Simple Wild Series by K.A Tucker

It's not often that a sequel will be better than the first in a series but my goodness, Wild at Heart was incredible. I haven't talked much about these books on here so I thought I would do a spoiler-free post today and tell you why you should read them. I highly recommend these books and I hope we get more in the future of Jonah and Calla. 
The Simple Wild Series by K.A Tucker
Blurb of The Simple Wild

City girl Calla Fletcher attempts to reconnect with her estranged father, and unwittingly finds herself torn between her desire to return to the bustle of Toronto and a budding relationship with a rugged Alaskan pilot in this masterful new romance from acclaimed author K.A. Tucker.
Calla Fletcher was 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 her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla 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 new subarctic environment, Jonah--the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps 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. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a 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 read The Simple Wild last summer and was obsessed with it, I still am so when the sequal was annouced I was so excited. I am going to keep this spoiler free because I don't want to ruin a single thing. But the first book made me so emotional that I sobbed and I never cry at books. K.A Tucker's writing is phenomenal and that really shows in Wild at Heart too. I felt everything the characters left and now I want to move to Alaska. The Simple Wild has a enemies to lovers vibe which I am all about and in Wild at Heart it's great to read a book that is a realistic take on a relationship and seeing them actually work at it. 

Both of these books end without cliffhangers which I really appreciate but they definitely leave you wanting more. Wild at Heart was the perfect continuation and picks up right where The Simple Wild left off and I couldn't get enough of it. I read it in two sittings because I forced myself to take it slow to really enjoy it and I'm so glad I did. I adore the relationship between Calla and Jonah, Calla's growth in the second book was a dream to read and Jonah had me swooning.

Both books have some really funny moments in them too that had me laughing out loud. I was completely absorbed into these books throughout reading them. The setting that is built in both books is so vivid.
