Grab your thermals and flannels—we’re heading back to Trapper’s Crossing, Alaska! K.A. Tucker announcing that we would get one more book about Jonah and Calla was the best news for the fans of the series. Even though we readers would have been happy with the series ending with Wild at Heart, the fact that we got Forever Wild is just the icing on the cake.
Jonah and Calla have been through so much from their early days as “Barbie and the Yeti.” From her father’s death to moving clear across the country, Calla has dealt with a lot of change in her life, but it has been so rewarding to have a front-row seat to her transformation from a spoiled city girl to a (semi-)rugged Alaskan frontier dweller. She has been able to take her modern sensibilities, adapt them to life in the wild, and cultivate a rich and rewarding life with Jonah.
While this novella focuses mainly on the Christmas holiday with both of their families trekking to their cabin in Trapper’s Crossing, there are plenty of other facets to this story. Calla and Jonah are engaged, but their wedding date is in limbo due to familial expectations, their neighbors are as trying as always, and winter in Alaska brings its own set of challenges.
What I love the most about this series is that it focuses not only on the romance between Jonah and Calla but the fact that every other character has become an extended family to them. Through every trial and hardship, their bonds have only gotten stronger, and to see everyone in a good place by the end leaves you with a smile on your face.
After a year like this one, reading is even more of an escape than usual for some. Heartfelt stories like this one are the perfect way to spend an afternoon and provide a brief respite from reality. If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it. Throughout three books, it evolves from an enemies-to-lovers slow burn to an established couple’s hard-fought happily ever after and has become one of my favorite series from a must-read author.
Thank you for the advanced copy of FOREVER WILD by KA Tucker All opinions are my own.

The holiday season is upon Calla and Jonah, and with the mistletoe and gingerbread comes plenty of family drama. Jonah is bracing himself for two weeks with a stepfather he loathes, and while Calla is looking forward to her mother and Simon’s arrival, she dreads the continued pressure to set a date for their wedding … in Toronto. Add in one bullheaded neighbor’s unintentional meddling and another cantankerous neighbor’s own family strife, and Christmas in Trapper’s Crossing will be anything but simple.
