There’s no doubt that K.A. Tucker has always been an amazing writer. But I feel like, truly, after each new book I read it just gets better and better. There’s something special about the way she crafts a story, how she unveils it, her characters and the way they can connect with you. Even if they are completely different than anything you know.
I was very excited about picking this book up because it’s mostly set in Alaska and I have an unhealthy fascination with life up there. I watch plenty of home shows about it and try to figure out how people live in those conditions. So having a book with that setting was already a big sell for me. And then I started reading it and I fell in love. I fell in love with the story, with the heartbreak of a broken home and the pieces that are left of it that the heroine has to try to put together.
Calla Fletcher lives the life of any young woman in a big city, thanks to her mother moving away from her hometown of small rural Alaska when she was just a small child. Her father was never really in her life and she doesn’t know much about him or the why. And then she gets a phone call that he’s very sick and would be a good time for her to at least know him before he passes away. What follows is not just a story about a romance with a grumpy hero, although there is that. It’s also a story about our main heroine and how she deals with all those years of hurt, how she can get to know her father. Maybe even forgive him. Understand him. And Ms. Tucker was able to take us on that journey while subtly making us fall in love with the hero.
Because, lets face it. Jonah is guaranteed to be your next book boyfriend. He’s a surly, grumpy, recluse, bearded Alaskan pilot. He has a bad attitude from the very beginning and their relationship is quite close to an enemies to lovers. There wasn’t a thing about him that I didn’t love. Same for their relationship. They are such polar opposites and they definitely attract. I couldn’t get enough of them.
In the end, this is a beautiful story of a journey that goes a little deeper than a simple romance. And it was addictive to read. I literally couldn’t put this one down. If you are looking for a unique read, look no further.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
