Summary (from the publisher):Veterinarian Marie Lehr knows unrequited love all too well after pining for her best friend, only to watch him marry another woman. It’s a mistake she will never make again, especially not when she can practically hear the clock ticking on her childbearing years.
The trouble is, she can’t seem to find anyone who appeals to her even a fraction as much as that burly bush pilot did. Competitive musher Tyler Brady certainly doesn’t, especially not after the heated altercation with the handsome but arrogant, spiteful man.
Or so she thinks.
While volunteering at the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, Marie discovers that first impressions may have been false, and her attraction to Tyler is very real. But his heart belongs to someone else, leaving him with nothing to offer but friendship. Marie’s been down this road before and knows how that ends. Yet, no matter how hard she works to keep from falling for Tyler, it seems she’s doomed to follow her own trail once again.
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
If there’s one book series that I love to binge-read, it’s K.A. Tucker’s Wild series. There is something just so addicting about this romance series set in rural Alaska. While the first two books & novella series follow Calla and Jonah, Running Wild follows Jonah’s best friend, Marie. Marie appeared in the first books, as a veterinarian, and yes, Jonah’s best friend who has always had unrequited feelings for him and makes Calla jealous. While I know some readers aren’t big Marie fans, I personally never really hated her and was so excited to learn that Running Wild would be Marie’s love story!
Sidenote that I definitely do recommend picking up the first two Wild books & novella before picking up Running Wild, since there are spoilers for the first two books & nearly all of the characters from those books appear in Running Wild.Read More »
