Goodreads description--From the international bestselling author of The Simple Wild comes Forever Wild, a novella that continues the story of Calla’s journey to the Alaskan wild and a life she never imagined for herself.

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.

I don't know that I have much to say about Forever Wild. Most of this book revolved around Jonah and Calla planning their wedding while hosting their parents for Christmas. Alaska during Christmas sounds magical. Truth be told, I hate the cold. I would like to look at the snow, but I wouldn't want to live in and amongst it.

The conflict revolved around Calla's mom's vision for Calla's wedding versus her own vision, Jonah's mother's health problems, Jonah's stepfather being a lazy bum, and Roy's dilemma with whether to contact his daughter that he hasn't seen in many years or not. Plus thirteen-year-old Mable is acting out.

In some ways, I didn't feel like this part of the story was necessary. In other ways, I'm so glad that it was released to us fans to enjoy Jonah and Calla finally getting to tie the knot. And getting to see how far Roy's come.

I wasn't a fan of Marie when it came to her involvement in the story between Calla and Jonah throughout the series, but I am intrigued to read her story in book 3.

Forever Wild was mostly fan service. But at the same time, there were some essential pieces to the puzzle that I'm glad we got to experience. Forever Wild gets 4 Stars because I was hooked, and every now and then, you just need some good fan service. Have you read Forever Wild? What did you think? Let me know!
