Review: The Path of Flames by Phil Tucker
The Path of Flames - Phil Tucker

The Path of Flames by by Phil Tucker is the first installment in The Chronicles of the Black Gate Series. Sorcery is forbidden in the Ascendant Empire, but sorcery is used against the empire to close the ancient portals. Asho is a slave made squire by King Kyferin. Can Asho become more than a squire, or is he doomed to die on the field of battle?

Plot 5/5: Excellent plot with action and suspense.

Characters 5/5: Well fleshed out characters to love and some to hate.

World building 5/5: Great world building.

Pacing 5/5: Lots of action with a steady pace.

Writing 4/5: The writing was good, but at one point the main character's name was spelled wrong.

Overall 4.8

This book is a great start to an intriguing story. 

Purchased on Amazon.

K.A. Tucker gives new meaning to the word yeti.
The Simple Wild - K.A. Tucker

After Calla receives a call about her father, whom she hasn’t seen since she was two, she makes her way to the Alaskan wilderness to get to know him. What she doesn’t expect to find is an angry yeti bush pilot to butt heads with. Will the simple wild be to much for the city girl to handle?


The Simple Wild has got to be up there in my list of favorite romance novels and one of my favorite K.A. Tucker books. She managed to take two totally different characters and perfectly form it into a realistic romance. I love how the simple wild sticks out from the same repetitive themes. I rarely see romance novels about bush pilots and its great to see a different theme that stuck out. This novel really has everything. Humor, heartache and romance all put together in a hard to put down and irresistible story. It makes you question what is out there and what you could be missing.

Complimentary copy provided by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

5 Out Of 5 "simply wild" STARS
The Simple Wild - K.A. Tucker

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

The Simple Wild

KA Tucker

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

City girl Calla Fletcher attempts to reconnect with her estranged father, and unwittingly finds herself torn between her desire to return to the bustle of Toronto and a budding relationship with a rugged Alaskan pilot in this masterful new romance from acclaimed author K.A. Tucker.

 

Calla Fletcher was two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

 

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonah—the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

 

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago.

 

It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Once Calla arrives in Alaska, I was hooked on this story.  The sexual tension, the scenery, the desolation of Alaska, the lies, the misunderstandings, and the tears, just all of it.  I really came to love these characters and their stories.  All of them, especially, Simon, who is only a secondary character, but he is the best Step-Dad ever…if you have to have a step-dad than Simon can't be beaten.  Even Calla says "everyone needs a Simon in their lives". 

 

Nobody does angst quite as well as this Author, and this story has its fair share of it.  Even with the sad-as-hell cancer storyline, this felt refreshing and current.  It's also not weighed down with unnecessary drama.  The Simple Wild is exactly that…simply wild and now it's one of my favorite KA Tucker books.  I highly recommend to everyone.

Slow start but had me racing to the end.
False Start (McKay-Tucker Men Book 1) - Marianne Rice

This is the first book I have read by this author. It took a bit to get into the story, but once there, I did not want to put it down. Meg had been through a lot, and I understood her hesitancy to let someone into her life. She had an hard shell covering her broken center. I loved her interactions with her daughter and Connor. Connor was a sweetheart, although he was not very communicative. He was full of reaction before thought. They made a great couple and had me laughing, crying, and sighing throughout the story.

This is my unsolicited review.

After the Fall (Tucker Springs, #6) by L.A. Witt Review
After The Fall - L.A. Witt

After years of saving every penny, Nathan has finally managed to buy the horse of his dreams. He’s looking forward to a summer of exploring the Colorado mountain trails above Tucker Springs with Tsarina. But on their very first ride, a motorcyclist makes a wrong turn, scaring Tsarina into bolting and leaving Nathan with a broken leg, a broken hand, and a ruined summer.

Ryan is a loner and a nomad, content with working odd jobs before moving on to the next town. Feeling guilty for causing the accident that leaves Nathan in two casts, Ryan offers to keep Tsarina exercised until Nathan heals.

Despite their bad start, Nathan and Ryan soon become friends . . . and then much more. But with a couple of nasty breakups in his past, Nathan doesn’t want feelings getting involved—especially knowing that Ryan will never settle down. But since when do feelings ever listen to reason?

 

Review

 

LA Witt is a fine writer and this is a well written book in a very good series. Witt does an especially good job with how Nathan fools himself and protects himself.

However, I am disappointed in this book overall as I was so looking forward to Nathan's book from reading the other books in the series. He seems really diminished somehow here and less himself than in other books. So, the love story loses its shine as well for me though it is enjoyable
