Review: Running Wild by KA Tucker


Running Wild (Wild, #3)Running Wild by K.A. Tucker

Christy's Review


It feels so good to be back in K.A. Tucker’s ‘Wild’ world and back in Alaska. The third book in this series is about Marie Lehr, a veterinarian and Jonah’s best friend.

Marie is a small town vet in Alaska and she cares deeply about all animals. The way she meets our hero Tyler, well, let's just say they don’t start out on the right foot. Tyler is new to Alaska and is there for a purpose. He’s there for the sled racing. His dogs are impeccable and he doesn’t like Marie thinking otherwise. I loved the banter between these two at the start. I could feel the tension boiling between them.

When I read these books, I truly feel like I’m there in Alaska. Tucker does an incredible job describing the scenery and making you feel like you’re right there with the characters. I also found the Iditarod sled dog racing captivating. I’ve never read a book with something like that in it.

I was a bit surprised with how much I loved Marie. I had some ideas about her from the other books, but I feel like I understand her better now and she’s relatable to a lot of us in a lot of ways. And Tyler… gah! He was wonderful. I also loved getting to see so many of the characters from previous books I love so much!

This book started out a bit like enemies to lovers, then turned into more of a friends to lovers. It was a heartwarming slow burn romance that can be read as a stand-alone, but I can’t recommend the other books in this series enough! They’re all wonderful!

5 stars to Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey


Hook, Line, and Sinker (Bellinger Sisters, #2)Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey
Christy's Rating: 5 of 5 stars 

“You make me feel like I’m in the exact right place,”

I’ve read quite a few of Tessa Bailey’s books, and although I’ve enjoyed every one I’ve read, none of them have had that five star favorite quality for me… until now. Hook, Line, and Sinker was the perfect romance for me. I loved everything about Hannah and Fox’s story!

Hannah is Piper’s sister and doesn’t feel like the leading lady in her own life. She’s back in Westport helping with a film and it feels right to be there. Back with her sister, back with Fox. Fox and Hannah became fast friends while she was in town before and have stayed in touch. Fox has a bit of a reputation, but he’s so much more than what he seems.

While in town, Hannah stays in Fox’s spare room. It’s fine… they’re just friends. While Hannah has a little crush on a coworker, Fox decides to help her out by being flirty with her to give a little more attention to her. When that flintiness turns real and real feelings get involved, they both have some big choices to make.
“I didn’t know what right felt like until you,” he choked out. “I’m holding on to the good you give me. I’m holding on to you.”

Though I had so much fun reading this one, one of my favorite things about it was seeing the characters so exposed, vulnerable, and unguarded. They really got to know the raw and real heart of each other and though they had mad chemistry, it was that honest heart connection that really did it for me. They both saw a side of each other that others don’t see and the way Hannah stood up for/protected Fox was absolutely everything!

If you enjoy friends to lovers, want a good rom-com with the perfect amount of emotion, and are looking for a sweet and steamy read that’s a lot of fun, pick up Hook, Line, and Sinker. This one completely stole my heart and I can’t recommend it enough!

“I loved you then,
I love you now,
and I’ve loved you every single day in between.”

Jameson Taylor is a nomad. A drifter. A memory collector.
Or, at least, that’s what’s become of her life ever since she was forced to leave pieces of her fractured heart behind.

“This is the fault in our fate, our one undoing:
All he’s ever wanted is my happiness,
even when it costs him his own.”

Holden Eastwood is resentful. Angry. But most of all, hurt.
Torn to pieces by the girl who left him, he struggles to find forgiveness in the organ she once broke.

When a tragedy forces them to face the aftermath, Jamie seeks acceptance, while Holden searches for answers.
What they find, instead, are remnants of their love.
Fragments of forever.
And parts of a puzzle that will lead them to the truth…
A truth that might shatter them to pieces.
