City girl Calla Fletcher attempts to reconnect with her estranged father, and unwittingly finds herself torn between her desire to return to the bustle of Toronto and a budding relationship with a rugged Alaskan pilot in this masterful new romance from acclaimed author K.A. Tucker. Calla Fletcher was 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 her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla knows that it's time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born. She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional--dear God--outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can't help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonah--the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her father's charter plane company operational--can't imagine calling anywhere else home. And he's clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she's too pampered to handle the wild. Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it's replaced by friendship--or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried--and failed at--years ago. It's a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.… (més)

You guys, I'm a mess. This wonderful, heart-wrenching, beautiful book got me. It's a good thing I'm at work because I would be sobbing my eyes out right now. It's been a long time since a book made me feel ALL THE FEELS. I finished it about 15 minutes ago and had to come write about it right away. I started this book on my commute this morning and finished it up at lunch. All 400 pages of it.

When the book starts, it's a little jarring because it's years ago and the person narrating is actually the female main character's mother. So it switches from Susan to Calla for the rest of the book. I know I had to go back to double check so just be forewarned. Anyway, fast forward to modern times. Calla lives with her mom, Susan and her step-dad, Simon. I want Simon for my dad but I digress. Calla gets a phone call from Alaska that she tries to ignore but the calls are persistent. Her biological father, who she hadn't seen since she was 2, has lung cancer. And so, being laid off from her job at a bank, Calla goes to Alaska to see her father.

Here we meet Jonah also known as the Yeti. Jonah works with Calla's dad and is an all around pain in the ass. And of course, where we have hot guy who is a pain in the ass, we have romance. Once Calla arrives in Alaska, everything goes wrong. Her luggage hasn't arrived, none of the grocery stores have her soy milk, there are bugs everywhere and her dad doesn't seem to be to keen on the idea of having her there.

Over time as the relationships begin to progress and layers begin to peel away, Calla begins to adjust to Alaska and take time to get to know her father, Jonah and the rest of the cast of characters. Of course Calla and Jonah strike up a relationship and of course there is trouble and unrevealed secrets and other roadblocks but in the end, the book is so much more than a romance. Every relationship in this book changed and every character in this book grew as a person. I don't remember the last time I could say that about a book and really mean it as much as I do for this story.

Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. It's out today. Bravo Ms. Tucker, Bravo. My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this one. ( )

This book started off a bit slow for me, but really picked up speed (and heat) towards the end. Now I need to get my hands on the other books in the series! ( )

This was great! At first I thought it was just going to be a light, fluffy romance, but it turned out to be much more. Filled with happiness and sadness, hope and regrets, "The Simple Wild" made me laugh and cry. I loved the detailed descriptions of Alaska and the the characters were fabulous - Calla, Jonah, Wren, Agnes, Mabel and even the three racoons, Bandit, Sid and Tim. They had so much heart and I was emotionally invested in them all. Despite the hardships they faced they were always there for each other, demonstrating the true meaning of family.

From the start I loved Calla and Jonah's relationship. They were two complete opposites, but they were perfect for each other. Their dialogue was a highlight! Overall, a delightful read. ( )

Good, simple, cute romance novel, set in Alaska, with some deep undertones. Just the kind I needed in this hot summer weather ( )
