#2: Now and Forever
By Mary Connealy / Bethany House211799

Shannon Wilde is the middle sister–and the one who loves animals. She’s established her own homestead and is raising sheep for their wool. Things are going fine…until Shannon gets swept over a cliff by Matthew Tucker!

Tucker seizes every opportunity to get away from civilization, but one particular walk in the woods ends with him sprinting away from an angry grizzly and plunging into a raging river, accidentally taking Shannon Wilde with him. Their adventure in the wilderness results in the solitary mountain man finding himself hitched to a young woman with a passel of relatives, a homestead, and a flock of sheep to care for.

As Tucker and Shannon learn to live with each other, strange things begin to happen on Shannon’s land. Someone clearly wants to drive her off, but whoever it is apparently didn’t count on Tucker. Trying to scare Matthew Tucker just makes him mad–and trying to hurt the woman he’s falling in love with sets off something even he never expected.

My review:

I’m a fan of light hearted romantic comedies when it comes to TV and movies. Mary Connealy gives me that in book form. Now and Forever is book 2 in the Wild at Heart series and it continues exactly where the first book leaves off.

Seeing two opposites find love and healing in each other can be a fun and humorous adventure. This book is a light hearted read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It would make a great beach or poolside read as its not too deep. It’s a perfect mix of romance, adventure and comedy.  I definitely recommend this if you want something lighthearted and easy to read.

I love the chemistry between Shannon and Tucker and in the background you can see the makings of the next book in the series, which will be coming out in October.

Check out my review of the first book here.
