Running Wild (Wild #3) by KA Tucker


From the internationally bestselling author of The Simple Wild comes the story of a woman at a crossroads in her life, struggling between the safe route and the one that will only lead to more heartbreak.

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.

4 Stars

I've been waiting for Marie's happily ever after story. We knew she wasn't the one for Jonah - he was always meant to be with Calla. But I always love Marie's character, she is passionate of saving animals and just wants to find her true love. 

After Marie has accepted that her best friend, Jonah, found his soulmate, Marie realized she had to move on. She couldn't be more happier for him. Marie took over her father's veterinarian clinic. She loves helping animals so much, she tends to let her clients skip on payment and it's caught up with financially.

Competitive musher Tyler Brandy is new town. Marie and Tyler start off on the wrong foot. Their banter and chemistry is too cute, but they both are surprised how attracted they are to each other, but there's something stopping both of them on moving forward. 

What I love about this book is that I learn so much about the world of competitive mushing in Alaska. I honestly had no what all goes into this sport. 

Overall, Running Wild is a great edition to this series and rounds the Wild series. But can we get Reed's book next?
