The Simple Wild was the first romance book I read. I was blown away by the chemistry between Calla and Jonah. After I finished the book, I walked around for three days feeling as though I had just fallen in love. Over the last year, I have been making my way through K.A. Tucker’s backlist.
I was so excited for Wild at Heart. Instantly upon starting this book, I was swept up in the chemistry between Calla and Jonah – there is just something about these two characters! Wild at Heart picks up where The Simple Wild left off (you really do need to read that one first), Calla and Jonah move in together, in Alaska and they start a business together that keeps Jonah away from home a lot and challenges Calla in ways that make her grow and make me like her more and more and more (I almost put The Simple Wild down because Calla annoyed me so much, but she continues to grow as a character and I now want to be her friend!).
Wild at Heart is the story of what happens AFTER Happily Ever After… Wild at Heart is the real heat and raw energy of a relationship. It’s the frustrations of working together and giving so much of yourself and trying to make something work with someone else. It’s about compromise and real life. It’s about facing challenges with your partner and sacrificing for your partner’s happiness and drawing the line at where you sacrifice and where you tell your partner what you need. Relationships are SO MUCH MORE than physical attraction and snarky banter, Wild at Heart tells the story of Calla and Jonah’s relationship beyond getting together and giving in to the heat. Wild at Heart tells the story of a real couple facing life and challenges together, making sacrifices for each other and learning to ask for what they need.
There is something really special about the chemistry between Calla and Jonah and I felt like I was leaving two friends when I finished the book. I hope K.A. Tucker more books and tells more and more of their story.
