The Simple Wild: A Novel
I LOVED IT!!! But I knew I would. K.A. Tucker has become one of my most favorite authors ever. I connect deeply with each one of her books (and heroines), and I feel like I’m actually living them. I love her “voice”, and her brand of storytelling that is so unique to her, and yet so relatable to me.

This one was exactly what I was hoping for. Funny, heartwarming, and bittersweet. I read it with an almost permanent smile on my face. I was delighted. They had me chuckling so hard…

He reaches up to drag his fingers through his beard. “What’s wrong with this?”

“Nothing, if you’re planning on living alone in the mountains and foraging for food. And now walking quite upright.”

“So you’re saying you don’t like it.” There’s no mistaking the amusement in his voice.

“Definitely not.”

He shrugs. “A lot of women like it.”

“No they don’t.”

“It’s my style.”

“No. Hipster is a style. Rockabilly is a style. Yeti is not a style.”

Tee hee!!! Oh the two of them and their banter… I LOVED it!! And then… the laugh-out-loud snorting too (but I’ll let you experience that chapter for yourself). ;) Oh yes, and there was swooning… and even ugly-crying through quite a few pages.

That is how connected I was with these characters. EVERY SINGLE ONE. I especially loved her amazing step-father. What a fortunate woman to have such secure love surrounding her so deeply.

Kathy P: Just finished The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker. I stayed up late to finish it. Definitely one of my best reads of the year! Visiting Alaska is now at the top of my bucket list!!

Jean: Just about finished The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker and really loved it. For those of you who like the slow burn, and that initial dislike of each other slowly growing into something more, you will love this. And I loved all the aspects of Alaska and the types of people who live there and their way of life!

Maryse: I just wanna say… The Simple Wild <— I am still loving it, and it’s one of those books that you read with a sweet smile on your face. How I love this author, and her way with dialogue and introspection. It’s all so… real. Maybe she’s my new favorite. Okay… back to my book.

Kathy P: Get out the manny and your tissues on this book read. Someone posted on this site that you will feel and the emotions and that is true!! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Nay: …The story was powerful, just not at all what I was expecting. Hit a little close to home for me, another thing I wasn’t expecting, but I still enjoyed it 4 stars worth, I especially loved the last few chapters as far as the feelings they stirred in me.

Ash: I really enjoyed The Simple Wild – offbeat and even though I hate the cold, Alaska worked for me!

Kim: The simple Wild! K.A tucker does it again and better!

And while there’s nothing particularly … dramatic or uber-angsty, or jaw-dropping about this book, that doesn’t mean it won’t grip you. It hooks you right from the start, and it makes you feel (and feel everything…) every single step of the way.

So what’s it about?

Born in Alaska, but raised in a big city in an upper-class household by her mother and stepfather, Calla has pretty much only known the good things in life. Her mother, posh and prim, and her stepfather (a successful and sensible therapist) have made sure that she wants for nothing, and encourage and support her (and love each other, too). Sure, she’s been disappointed by the lack of her biological father (he’s in Alaska), but all in all, she’s a city girl at heart, operating a “Lifestyle blog” with her very best friend and living the good life.

But it’s when she receives a call from her dad’s neighbor in Alaska that her world really opens up. Her father is sick, and it would be time to get to know him, now, before it’s too late.

Arriving in Alaska with all of her luggage and trendy shoes, and meeting a surly Jonah (one of her father’s best pilots) is when her perception of reality comes to a screeching halt.

“Hell. Six other pilots available and I have to be the one to get you,” Jonah mutters to himself.

I close my eyes and lean my face against the window. The ice cold glass helps a bit even with the jarring bumps. “‘Don’t worry Calla.’ ‘It’s no big deal Calla.’ That’s what a decent person would say,” I mumble feebly.

“I’m here to get your high maintenance little ass to Bangor, not soothe your ego.”

He’s not impressed with her princessy fanfare…

I peer at his face – still masked by all the mangy hair and sunglasses and baseball cap, pulled low despite the lack of sun. How long has he been growing that bush for, anyway? Years? There are long, wiry hairs sticking out in every direction. I guarantee it’s never seen a pair of scissors or a comb. Ever.

My disgusted expression stares back at me from the reflection of his lenses and my mother’s words about falling in love with a pilot suddenly hit me.

I burst out laughing. Is Jonah what she would call a “sky cowboy”?

As if I’d ever fall for this guy.

…and she soon realizes life in Alaska is worlds away from what she’s used to.

All this open space around me and I’m trapped.

Priorities change significantly.

Along the way, she learns much about love of all kinds. The true love of family, friends and of course… true love ;) And, she learns about herself.

It’s just fantastic!!! Truly vivid writing, believable characters that come to life and a subtle intensity that will take you by surprise BIG time. I sobbed. But I could not put it down, and the smile on my face from pretty much start-to-finish was well worth that bout of heartache.

4 stars!!!

P.S. So far, every single book I’ve read by this author, I would HIGHLY recommend. Next on my “K.A. Tucker list” is her latest psych-thriller. I’m SO excited about that one!!

P.P.S. Thank you to the publisher for sending me this review copy!!!


Happy Monday everyone!!!! I’ve got a review coming up in just a little bit (today), but in the meantime:

Let’s play “Three Things”

T.M. FRAZIER’S LATEST ANTI-HERO ALERT!!!!! This is her latest series, book #1 will be live at midnight, and ALL three books are already up for preorder and waiting for us. ;) Gritty and raw, I just KNOW it!! You know she goes… there.

About book #1:

Love is supposed to be a fairy tale.
Ours is a death wish.

I’m the executioner for the Bedlam Brotherhood.
She’s a con artist working for my greatest enemy.

I use her.
She manipulates me.

We find ourselves on opposite sides of a bloody war.

My heart and head tell me I have to stay away.
My lust for her doesn’t give a sh*t.

Nothing’s fair in love and gang war.

  1. Perversion (Perversion Trilogy Book 1)
  2. Possession (Perversion Trilogy Book 2) - November 6th 2018
  3. Permission (The Perversion Trilogy Book 3)- December 11th 2018



KARINA HALLE ALERT!!! Okay again… I’m inventing things, again. :P This series (made up of standalones) apparently doesn’t have an official name yet, but since each book is about a royal hero, I figured I’d name it the obvious, until further notice. ;)

AND!! Book #3 was just released and it’s forbidden love too! YAY US!!! OH AND AND!!! Just received this fun note from the author herself :

Karina Halle: I hate linking as a series since people think you have to read in order (and the new book doesn’t feature ANY characters from the others) BUT if I were to name them I’d say Nordic Royals (since they’re all hunky Scandinavian men)

Barbara: I’ve read all 3 of them and they are so good. I loved each one! I didn’t want them to end.

Jenn: I’m currently reading A Nordic King and loving it!

About book #1:

I never believed in fairy-tales. Never held out for Prince Charming.

Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep. At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich. But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.

Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill. He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden. Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with him. I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.

When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle? Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?

Vanessa is looking for this one! She gives us some AMAZING detail and it sounds like an incredibly heartwarming read (and quite a little shock of a spoiler that makes me want to read it) but I will spoiler-alert for you so you don’t see it if you don’t want to. ;)

She asks:

Hey Maryse!

I’m trying to find the name of a book for a friend. I know I have it amongst my thousands of books but I haven’t had any luck. Maybe you could help.

The girl was in the hospital because she had heart problems. Her Dr was her uncle, I believe that her mom was in love with but refused to date because he was her Dr.

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

The Guy was basically stuck in the hospital because he lost his girlfriend/wife there and couldn’t figure out how to move on. One of the Dr’s there put a chair outside of the room because he was always there.

He eventually became like an orderly or something in the hospital. Which is how he came across HER eating chocolate pudding in her hospital bed with her finger. He ended up giving her an extra one or something one night and that’s how they started becoming close…

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

But they end up finding out that she got the heart of the person he lost.

Any idea what the name of this book was??

Anyone know it?

Lisa: Is it Within These Walls (The Walls Duet Book 1) by JL Berg? Lailah Buchanan has a congenital heart disease, her heart is too large for her body. Lailah has spent a lifetime in hospitals and longs for a more normal life outside the constricting medical walls. Jude is a CNA, he took the job at the hospital after a tragic accident three years ago in which his fiance was killed. Jude is a shadow of his formal self and lives day to day. Upon being switched to the cardiac wing, Jude meets Lailah and the two become fast friends. Over time, the two begin to develop stronger feelings.

Chris: Yep, I also think it’s Within These Walls.

Vanessa: Yes this is it! Thank you

Maryse: YAY!!!! Another one solved. Thank you so much everyone!! :D

Julie: There is also a second book. Beyond These Walls (The Walls Series Book 2)

Maryse: AND a book 3! Behind Closed Doors (The Walls Series Book 3)


Aubree needs our Rock Star romance book help! Oooooooh boy is this one loaded in drama (and for sure, some seriously infuriating moments). Yeah, Aubree goes all out describing it, and this one goes there!!!!! Unrequited love (she’s JUST his best friend), cheating, falling in love and getting REALLY serious REALLY fast… the works!! HOLY. MOLY.

She asks:

Hi. A couple of ladies have been looking for a rockstar romance for a while now and the girl who posted about it can’t remember the name of the book… I was wondering if you may have any insight:

It starts with the guy getting home from tour and going straight to his best friends house but the problem is his best friend is a girl he can’t stop sleeping with and he’s engaged with someone else. The best friend calls it off as she’s in love with him and doesn’t wanna be second best (she’s also best man at the wedding).

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

Things go off on his stag night I think they went to a fight or something, turns out his fiancé’s a bit of a psycho and on the wedding day he doesn’t get married to the fiancé and realises he’s been in love with the best friend for years!

That’s all I can remember!

Okay so I remembered a bit more! Also I’ve had a lot of suggestions saying it could be love letter to whisky, it’s not that :)

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

After the wedding where he decides to ditch the fiancé and get with the best friend he gets like really obsessed and possessive and wants to move like 100000 mph, she goes on tour with him she remains on the pill he’s not too happy about it but doesn’t tell her as he’s trying to respect. But that doesn’t stop him from hoping and rubbing her belly every time time they sleep together.

In the end she gets pregnant on the pill worried about telling him she does and he’s ecstatic.

Also I remembered something else.

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

Before the wedding the fiancé doesn’t like the friendship and is horrible to the best friend. I think at one point when the best friend goes to the house and he’s not not the fiancé trashes the room in a fit of jealousy that’s, and also I think his band mates start having a go at him at how he’s treating the best friend as no one likes the fiancé as it’s obvs they’re both using each other.

He’s marrying the fiancé because he thinks he needs to settle down and doesn’t want to it with the best friend as he knows how she feels and don’t want to lead her on as he thinks he doesn’t feel the same and even though he doesn’t mind using anyone else like that he can’t do it to her.

Also the night before the wedding he begs her for one last night with him and she agrees and they spend the night together”.

OH. MY!!!!!! Does anyone have a guess?

This sounds like everything we love to devour (and fume with) in our angsty-book love!!

Alyssa: Holy cow! Sound amazingly awful or awfully amazing…. either way, it sounds like something I want to read. What’s the name???

Maryse: RIGHT??!?!! I’m dying to know this one!!!

Kim: Me too!!! This one doesn’t ring a bell and I’m addicted to Rock Star reads

Maryse:  I know Kim!!! You were one of my original rock star romance lovers!!!

Karen: Following! I want to know what book this is!

Ashley: Omg I’ve read this book and now I can’t remember either.

JulieO: I want to read this rock star book! If anybody finds out please post Maryse.

Christine: Sounds soooo good!

Heather: Following! Curious what book this is!!

Lola: Is it The Rocker Who Holds Me (The Rocker Series Book 1) by Terri Anne Browning? That sounds very similar!

Putri: Hi Maryse! I’ve read Lola’s suggestion – the rocker who holds me, but i think it is not what we are looking for. The h in the rocker who holds me

#spoiler alert…
