I’ve been a bit MIA but I just had to come back and blog about my favorite small town series! If you don’t already know, I had a soft spot for an Alaskan Yeti named Jonah (my main book boyfriend, ha!). So did Marie, his best friend. But she had to watch him fall in love with someone else over the span of 2.5 books. Well now our loyal friend Marie is getting her own well-deserved story. AND, I fear the Yeti may have lost his top spot as my book boyfriend to Tyler Brady (whom I pictured as Sam Hunt).
To rewind, if you haven’t read The Simple Wild series…you MUST! Besides the building love story of the main characters – you cannot help but fall in love with the quaint town and its supporting characters. Which is why I screamed in excitement when I was able to get access to an advanced copy of veterinarian Marie’s story, Running Wild. OH MAN WAS IT GOOD!It was so nice to be back in Alaska…even in the middle of winter here in the Northeast I didn’t mind the fictional cold.

<— This is how I feel about this book. I have been holding this review in, waiting for pub day and I am EXPLODING with excitement that its finally out in the world!
5 STAR HERO:
It was the perfect rom-com that snapped me out of my reading rut. I DNF’d the 3 books I picked up before this…my rut was on a serious downward spiral, but I digress.I read it in ONE DAY by alternating between audio and book; both of which I loved.

’Tis the season for an office romance!
Working beyond nine to five and barely getting by, Melanie Thomas is eager to celebrate the impending holiday season and to toast the start of her dream marketing job over drinks with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, he has different plans – like seeing other women.
Indulging in a pity party with tequila, Melanie confides in a sexy stranger at the bar. It’s almost Christmas. One night of letting go won’t hurt anything, right? Turns out, it just might, when the stranger is her new boss. Determined to succeed at her job, Melanie won’t be scared away. This is her chance, even if her hot boss has her feeling all merry and bright and wishing for a less-than-professional relationship.
Matthew Ryans is burned out and on thin ice at the company he helped build, unless he gets his head back in the game. Yet, his head, both upper and lower, are quickly becoming obsessed with his new assistant. Still, he can’t seem to fully begrudge Melanie’s distracting presence and the Christmas joy she brings with it. Especially considering that her enthusiasm has him re-energized.
For once, he is longing for Mondays, but with his heart and job on the line, he can’t risk blurring the lines no matter how strong the lure of holiday mistletoe is.
Will their holiday passion be able to fuel mutual career success, or will it only get in their way in the New Year?
