I think with the latter guy, had he been more personable than not much more than a personwhore, I'd have liked him more and would have felt for him more, but he kind of came across like he wanted to have his cake and eat it; there was an immaturity about him that wasn't attractive, but the other guy was all seriousness and I think that towards the end, they both rubbed off on each other - pardon the pun.
The tale ends in the start of the guys' HEA, but I'm not sure that I could believe in the Cali-boy suddenly believing that the wilds of Alaska were for him and that he'd be able to settle there. Perhaps if there had been an epilogue showing their lives months/years down the line, I'd have believed in them more, but as it was, there wasn't even a mention of little Flower, one's cat companion - heresy to a cat lover!

I live and experience my adventures through my books. I adore to read about people who spend most of their lives in the wilderness, because it is sooo far and different from the life I live!..The characters who know how to deal with unpredictable weather, wild animals, who can enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the landscape and their own solitude in peace and quiet are my favorite.
It is why books with Alaska in titles or blurbs have all my attention. Alaska in combination with The Witness Protection Program and FBI? Even better. I’m a passionate mystery reader as many of you maybe already know. Besides, the blurb sounded kind like Did You Hear About the Morgans?, the movie I like. What could be better?! I was excited.
It started well. Well…at least it started promising.
Bush pilot Jake Wylder, Alaskan born and bred, an owner of a small transport company of two small planes in Alaska, that delivers medical supplies, is sexy as hell and slut to the core. In spite of his reputation men and women, old and young can’t resist his charms and he always lands in someone’s bed if he wants. JD Smith, a California native, who is used to sun and surf, and doesn’t actually know how snow look likes, a doctor, who accidentally occurred to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and for this reason has to spend some months, up to the trail, under The Witness Protection Program in Alaska, to play nurse at the local hospital.
I have to warn all mystery fans: the mystery part isn’t present in this novel. Except some short communications with the agent in charge of the JD’s case, and a short explanation of why JD is where he is at the beginning, there is no mention of it at all later, nothing dangerous or thrilling happens here.
That actually not a bad thing. It means that the plot is focused utterly on the romance part.
A sexy slutty bi pilot vs. sexy and good-mannered city doctor.
A small town citizen vs. a big city resident.
Jack’s glacier blue eyes vs. JD’s brightest green eyes.
Their first meeting was predestined.
Of course they were immediately struck by the beauty of the opposite side.
What follows after, shortly:
~ Jack falls in love, stops to sleep around and tries everything to win the attention of JD. Though deep in his heart he knows that a city gay guy won’t probably be happy to spend the rest of his life in the wild.
~ JD knows the reputation of Jack and tries to fight his feelings, because he is not a one-nigh-stand type and prefers serious relationships and he doesn’t think he can spend the rest of his life far away from a big city.
~Well...Taming the Wyld is a contemporary MM romance. And a romance book HAS to follow the rules. That means, they will find a solution and they will stay together.
After I mentioned that there is no mystery present here, I have unfortunately to add that there is no romance present here either. A not convincing enough or not presented at all romance in a romance novel is not a good sign.
The author TRIED hard to create a romance relationship, but that would include, in particular
1. a relationship’s build up
2. sexual tension
3. well written sex scenes
4. intense dialogues
Without these components there is no romance for me. Sorry.
And the last and the most important fact:
the plot HAS to deliver something special about the story.
Lucie Archer failed on all fronts.
Not to mention, that the author failed also to create impressive setting surroundings -the story could be placed anywhere else, I didn’t feel the spirit of Alaska at all. Very pity.
This is a short story that is sexy and full of heat. Who can’t love a little quicky? Jake Wylder is exactly that wild. His last “long term” relationship lasted 7 months but he’s more of the love ‘em and leave ‘em type and because he is pansexual the choices are vast. Of course, this has gotten him into trouble a time or two. He loves his job and business of flying even after suffering a lose that almost kept him grounded the call was too strong. As soon as Jake meets sexy nurse JD he wants him in his bed but JD isn’t having it. Soon enough Jake realizes maybe having JD in his bed isn’t all he wants.
JD has his reason s for turning down Jake mainly all the baggage he carries with him to Alaska in the Witness Protection Program. Doing anything but keeping his head down could mean danger for him and those around him. And he is sure someone like Jake isn’t used to being turned down. But he loves to help people
I loved the heat and the Witness Protection Program angle piqued my curiosity from the get go! Not to mention a bit of suspense. The author wrote these two guys in a way that had to rooting for them from the sidelines and feeling connected to their story all at once. Her character are well written and completely likeable.
If you are looking for a novella with romance, intrigue, suspense, and a bad boy that falls head over heals than this is your story!
