Wild at Heart is the second book in The Simple Wild series, and it cannot be read as a stand alone. The story picks up right where the prior book stopped, and the readers are in for a real treat.
Jonah and Calla have decided to try to make a real go for their relationship - and that means a lot of changes for both of them. Calla is adamant she won't make the same mistakes her mom made. Jonah loves Calla so much he just wants her to be happy.
After moving to a very small town, they both need to adjust to their new life, and little by little, things they both thought they wouldn't have to deal with come to light.
Will their love for each other be enough?
Wild at Heart is one of those sequels when you are amazed from start to finish – because it’s even better than the first book, and your heart is full.
The character development in Wild at Heart is astounding. Both Calla and Jonah grow so much, and while I already loved them before, the way they grew made me love them even more! Moving is never easy, and they both ended up moving to make their own home in a new place. In some ways, I felt that the move was easier on Jonah, because he was still a pilot. Calla had no idea what she wanted to do, and so she did what she could to make sure Jonah was happy.
The new characters Tucker brought into the mix in Wild at Heart were awesome, and they all brought something specific and important to the overall story and plot. From grumpy Roy to meddling Muriel. The characters that were important to the story in the first book showed up here as well, and it just felt like such a complete and fulfilling story.
Wild at Heart is really about not settling for anything, but still taking care of the people we love. Striving to be better, and trying to fit in without changing who we are at the core of ourselves. Tucker wrote this story beautifully, and my emotions were all over. I felt joy and love, I felt sadness and anger, and sometimes despair. Wild at Heart is the first book to hit my favorite 2020 shelf, because it touched my heart in all the right ways.
