Book: The Simple Wild (Wild #1)
Author: K. A. Tucker
Release Date: 7th August 2018
My Rating: 5 stars
I don’t know what it was that initially pushed me to purchase this book but I wasn’t super excited about it. When it arrived it got put straight onto my TBR shelf and forgotten about. It had been there for such a long time before I even considered picking it up.
Yesterday, I was struggling to find something new to read. Usually, if I am in a good reading place I know what I’ll be picking up as soon as I finish the book I’m reading. However, I had no plans and The Simple Wild jumped out at me. I’m so glad it did.
It’s been a while since I picked up a 5 star read. I definitely haven’t had many of them this year.
This is the first book by K A Tucker that I have read and her writing style had me hooked from the first page. Boy can she write a gripping and emotional story.
I feel that a lot of contemporary authors either focus solely on character development or they go in the complete other direction and focus entirely too much on the setting. When there is too much of one or the other it can really impact a story, and not in a positive way. K A Tucker has the perfect mix of everything which pulls you into the most beautiful story.
I am a fast reader but I devoured this book in less than four hours. I couldn’t put it down. I easily fell in love with the characters and the Alaskan setting.
Did I cry? Of course I did…repeatedly. It made me ugly cry. If you don’t at least tear up you must be as hard as nails.
It’s a story of full of love, forgiveness and finding yourself. I highly recommend it. It’s the perfect time of year to cuddle up on your couch with a cuppa, a blanket and this book.
