★★★★★ Amazon Customer @ Amazon.com “The second book in what’s turning out to be a well-written and very hot series” on February 11, 2018
This is the second in the Alaskan Wild series. I liked the first book a great deal and so was very much looking to see where they’d go.
The first thing I should say is that, bless their souls, these two authors *don’t* do the thing I’ve seen in erotica series where each book is incomplete. I despise that—it feels like I’m being tricked into buying more and more. Jaye Elise and Jack Crosby have written two books where each stands completely on its own, and there are only hints at what might be to come. That’s the way it should be. Other authors of erotica should pay attention. Respect your readers!
I’d say if you liked the first book in the series, Rules of the Wild, you’re definitely going to like Running Wild—but they’re very different books. Rules of the Wild had more of a darker tone to it, more of a looming threat in the background. Running Wild has a bit of that, to be sure, but it’s a lighter story. I’d say the erotic aspects of the two stories are different (because the protagonists are different), but equally hot!
If you haven’t read Rules of the Wild, while I recommend it, you don’t need to. The two books share a familial thread, but at no point does Running Wild rely on its earlier work—it just seamlessly refers to it. You can start here and, if you like it, go back and read Book One.
There’s a moment I love in this book. I don’t think I’m giving away anything that’s not in the description above to say that our two protagonists face some serious challenges. At one point, Jordyn gives a speech to her dogs, and I guess I’d say that besides being inspiring, it just felt… real. Sometimes I talk to my dog like that when we’re facing a challenge like a big hill—though not nearly as eloquently. I really appreciate moments in books like that, when moments are captured so wonderfully.
As with Book One, the erotic aspects are solid—definitely a turn-on throughout. Also as with the first book, there’s one scene in a sleeping bag that… let’s say it gives the people what they want.
This is another solid work from these two wonderful authors. I hope there’s another book in the series to come!
★★★★★ Stats23 @ Amazon.com “The Wyatt’s, Part 2” on February 17, 2018
A second great book in what is becoming an exciting series featuring strong male and female leads set in action packed adventures in the state of Alaska. The first book featured Toby and Emy while this second story revolves around Toby’s younger brother Rudolf and his dogsled racing compatriot Jordyn. The plot has us in Alaska for the ultimate dogsled race called The Chimney Run 600, with lots of action, many good guys and more than a few bad guys. While competing against each other in this race, Rudolf and Jordyn find reasons to differ from each other while at the same time coming together to conquer both the harshness of the elements and the dangerous doings of the bad guys. Their relationship struggles at first but turns into a loving romance with more than a few firm spankings and erotic sexual encounters throughout. But, will it be enough to see them through to the end? I loved this story just as much as I did the first book, and with the references to Toby and Rudy’s younger sister Lucy I am hoping that we will see a future book featuring this third Wyatt sibling. Another unqualified 5 Star read.
I received this book as an advance review copy from the publisher.
★★★★★ Desi @ Amazon.com “Reads like a movie” on February 13, 2018
The second book in the Alaskan Wild series, but it can be read as a standalone without any problems. This a whole new story with different characters.
I really enjoyed the first book and this book didn’t disappoint. Jordyn and Rudolf were great characters. I loved how their relationship evolved and how strong Jordyn was. Something that Rudolf loved about her and encouraged. Rudolf wasn’t as grouchy as his brother, but they did have a lot of the same ideas. And not to mention fireworks went off everything they got together.
I was laughing so hard I almost choked on my wine while reading about their antics and the Dog Sled Racing read like a movie. I was cheering them on.
This is a great read, you won’t regret reading it.
I received this book from Stormy Night Publications as an advance review copy.
