The Simple Wild (Wild #1) - K.A. Tucker
This book. *sigh* It's that kind of book that you can't put down and end up reading all night without realizing it's morning already. It's a beautiful book. It's been a really long time since I read something like this. It's very different form the usual NA. The story had so much character and buildup and honest to god feels! It's not your regular lust turned love romances. Its so much more. Calla, the female protagonist is a city girl. She lives with her mom and step dad. When she was two years old her dad and mom parted ways in Alaska where she was born. Her mom couldnt stand the cold isolated place anymore. Now her dad's sick and she's going to Alaska to spend time with him. They haven't really spoken much with each other for the past 24 years. There she meets this guy Jonah who's a pilot. Sparks fly. So do witty comebacks! Their chemistry is legit off the charts! I loved their banter ! This book is more than romance, it's got a wholesome feel about it. It touches almost every aspect of life: friends, family, love and career. The writing flows with ease and in such a well written manner. It was also heartbreaking and emotional. The only reason it's not a five star is because it's not my usual kind of books I love where the center of the attention is the love story of the couple. Sure this book revolves around the couple but it's also got so much more content (which I loved and was amazing!) Looking forward to reading more from this author!
Pick this up if you're looking for something real, with feels (you totally feel connected to the female character) and such good chemistry and plot overall!
About the book:
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.
