The following is an honest review of Running Wild by K.A. Tucker and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of Running Wild
Still dealing with the fact that the love of her life and best friend married someone else, Marie is wondering if it’s her destiny to be alone. As a veterinarian in rural Alaska, it is normal to care for sled dogs and their drivers (mushers). After a not-so-successful first impression with one of its competitors, she runs into Tyler again at the Iditarod Race. She realizes he isn’t the kind of man she thought. His love for the sport is only second to his love for his dogs and she can’t deny her growing attraction to him. Although it seems his attraction to her is reciprocated, she learns that he is still grieving loss and can only offer friendship. Despite how hard she tries to convince herself that she is fine with friendship, she’s not….and most of the time it seems as though he isn’t either. Marie doesn’t want to end up pining for someone just to be heartbroken again, so why can’t she shake her feelings for Tyler?
Review of Running Wild
OK, let me just say that I’ve kind of put off reading this book because I just didn’t want this series to finally be over. The characters and setting K.A. Tucker has created are just…..well, perfect. I absolutely love that she has this series set in Alaska. Not only is it interesting but I also enjoy learning about their way of life in such a different climate than mine. I didn’t think I would enjoy this book AS MUCH as the others because Jonah and Calla aren’t the main characters, but I was wrong. This is in large part due to K.A. Tucker’s perfect character development. The family dynamics she incorporates in her stories and so endearing and relatable. Her characters’ struggles are real-world issues we too deal with on a daily basis. I can’t gush enough about how much I love this series. My only complaints are that 1.) there aren’t more books in the series, and 2.) the sex scenes are open-door.
This book COULD be read as a stand-alone but I highly recommend reading the others in the series.
