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…

Happy new year! It isn’t too late, is it??

The simple wild: First k.A tucker book to read and boy was this book smooth! not in a bad way I wasn’t ready for an emotional roller coaster. why I picked it up; cause the genre is New adult.

                                                                       About the book

First things first, the set up being in Alaska had me fall in love with the book.

Calla, a 26-year-old, has grown to resent her father for being absent in her life. Having grown in Toronto she has to go to Alaska to see her father. At first, the shift from Toronto to Alaska seems heavy on her. From the rugged environment, to the rude, annoying proud Alaskan pilot Jonah. But coping is the only option she has since what matters is her bond with her father.

                                                                    Why I loved the book

The storyline was perfect thus the 5 stars it wasn’t as intense, of course, Calla gets to know the truth behind the father not being around while she grew up but there are no major bombs dropped just the managable ones.

The pace of the story is strong. It’s the last half that bears the weight of the emotions of each character. There are no loose ends and the ending exceeds the expectation of the reader.

Character development is a thumbs up! They weren’t flooding the book plus they were believable.

Why you need to read this book

The kind of book you read then go to bed smiling or the book that gets you bright all week I loved its a relaxing read.

For anyone who has trepidation about romance novels, but who still loves fantastic relationships between characters. The jacket suggests that this is something of a steamer, which is unfortunate because I think the family history here is much more impressive than any of the potential romances
