    Definitely - 100% - do not miss this book!

    This book was everything I didn't even know I wanted. Seriously. It was everything. I was sucked in immediately by Ms. Tucker's engaging brand of storytelling and ultimately found that this was one of the rare books that I never wanted to end. I didn't count down my percentage to the ending. I didn't start anticipating the next book I was going to lose myself in, I was rooted deeply in Bangor, Alaska, with this authentic and heart-stealing cast of misfits and I never wanted to leave. The Simple Wild is so much more than a romance. It's a love story, through and through, but that love extended far beyond Calla and Jonah. There are many layers here and all of them are emotional. I mean, make no mistake, this book is heartbreaking. I had some sniffily, hiccuppy, sobby tears over the course of the story. However, despite that admission, I do not think I would call it an ugly cry book. I did not feel like it preyed upon my emotions. In fact, I think it was balanced with a lot of playfulness, humor, and sweet emotion. The heat level is low here, but the chemistry still snapped and sparked and held my heart captive for nearly the entire book. This is a slow burn - my impulse is to call it a "sweet slow burn", but that would not be entirely accurate. There's an enemies-to-lovers component here that takes a while to warm up, but I enjoyed every minute of their journey toward each other. I loved them together. If I have a complaint, it's that I wanted more. I've already said I wasn't ready for it to end. I would have liked an epilogue. I would have liked a glimpse into the future. I would have liked just a little more time with Calla and Jonah because my heart wasn't ready to let them go, and because my brain just plain wanted to know what happened next. That said, I will still shout from the rooftops that you need to read this book! I know that this story will stay with me for a long time. I was touched by it, and I fell completely and hopelessly in love with it. Definitely - 100% - do not miss it! ~ 4.5 Stars

    My favourite KA Tucker book to date

    I just finished this book no less than 5 minutes ago. I love each and every book Kathleen writes, but I’m honestly saying that The Simple Wild is quite simply my most favourite of hers now. And that’s saying a lot since my favourite book has been Five Ways to Fall. As with all her books, I’ve always had strong feelings about the storyline and her characters. With The Simple Wild, I think she has hit every emotion that a human can feel. Kudos with making me tear up too Kathleen - it takes a special book to get the tears to flow down my face. This story is so much more than just Calla and Wren or even Calla and Jonah. Each character in this book plays a special part. Even the location was its own character. Reading about all the locations that Jonah and the other pilots would fly to were breathtaking. A trip to Alaska is definitely now on my bucket list.

    A must read!

    I am so happy that I went into the book completely blind. I think this is my new favourite book by KA Tucker. She was able to balance romance, humour and sadness perfectly. It felt like it was a true story. I learned so much about the lifestyle of Alaskan people as well. As much as it was about Alaska, I loved seeing my home town Toronto in it as well. I enjoyed all of the characters especially Calla. I loved seeing her growth as the book progressed. There was definitely some humour in this book. Just ask my next door neighbours as I startled them with my laughing! I highly recommend this book for everyone and I can’t wait for everybody to get their hands on this book.

    Great story, good writing style

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was funny at times, sad at times, but overall an enjoyable read.
