    ⭐ FIVE BEAUTIFUL STARS ⭐

    This book draws you in right from the beginning. There is this beautiful quote at the start: "There is always this kind of nostalgia for a place, a place where you can reckon with yourself." -Sam Shepard These words spoke to me. I wanted to find out how they would relate to Rachel and Shane so bad! North Ridge sounds like a beautiful place. It's described so vividly; I could see myself there. I could almost feel the rain and see the rolling hills and open plains. The whole book really keep you interested. Not only do you meet very interesting side characters but Shane and Rachel's shared past is something that's hinted to be both painful yet beautiful. What happened to them? What tore them apart and will they be able to put it together again? The author makes you want to keep reading. The words are emotional, yearning and oh so relatable. This books was un-put-downable from start to finish and Rachel and Shane's story is one emotional and highly addictive read! Can't wait to read the next book in this series!

    Another amazing read

    I love Karina Halle - everything single book she has written I have read and none of them have been disappointing. She makes her characters so rich and entertaining the pages literally turn themselves. Just another reason to be fiercely proud of to be Canadian.

    Beautiful second chance romance

    "I wasn't drowning in the memories-I was dying in them. And every single thing I felt for her? It came rushing back, a flash flood of desire and pain that nearly blindsided me." I can always depend on Karina Halle to come up with a great romance story. It doesn't matter if it's a dark, suspenseful, funny or contemporary romance. Wild Card was a very beautiful second-chance contemporary romance. I have read a lot of those and was looking forward to see how the author would differentiate this story from all the rest. I think the main way she did it was with the personalities and actions of the characters. They didn't make the obvious decisions in certain situations. "Love isn't a chain, Rachel. It's not a shackle. Love is what sets you free, love doesn't confine. What I feel for you...it's wild and it's raw an it's as real as that sun above us." I either hate or love flashbacks in books. And I was really happy that they were included in this book, because it enforced my believe in their love. Without the flashbacks the story would be missing a lot and it would be harder for me to connect to the characters. Thankfully, they weren't too long and actually added to the story. It was obvious that the love between Shane and Rachel was still alive, maybe a bit broken but not unfixable. However, it wasn't easy for them to overcome their obstacles and I could really feel the pain of both characters. What I also enjoyed reading was the interaction of the main characters with the secondary characters, such as Shane's brothers Maverick and Fox. Especially Shane and Fox have a very complicated relationship, and I am looking forward to learning more about that in the next books. "Rachel, I love you. I loved you then, I love you now, and I loved you in all the light and darkness in-between. I love you with a wildness I can't tame." I really loved Shane and Rachel's personalities and they made such a great couple. Wild Card in my opinion was a great first book in the North Ridge series, and I can't wait for Fox and Maverick's stories. This book helped me get out of my month long book slump. There was no unnecessary drama thrown into the story to add angst, so I really appreciate that. All the decisions made by the characters made sense for them, and that is how it suppose to be. Wild Card was another solid contemporary romance by one of my favorite authors Karina Halle!
