Wild life is about to take on a whole new meaning . . .
Dax Cannon never says no to a challenge. But when he discovers a sexy stowaway in the back of his truck, he realizes Annelise Ansel might be more than he bargained for. 
An artist, Lissa claims she’s leaving New Orleans for a fresh start in Michigan–which just happens to be where he’s headed with the pack of rescue dogs he’s delivering to the sanctuary he works for. But when three thugs threaten to take lovely Lissa off his hands, he realizes she’s in need of a sanctuary, too.
Once Lissa is riding shotgun with her long, lean protector, she’s wondering if fate might have something better in store for her than living her life in hiding. But when her hijinks threaten to take down the best man she’s ever had the pleasure to run away with, Lissa realizes it’s time to face her demons. Now it’s up to the two of them to fight through the danger to discover the life—and love—waiting on the other side.

My Rating:  4 stars

I will say upfront that I did not get the chance (time) to read the first two books in this series before diving into FOREVER WILD.  I wish I had, although you can easily read this one on its own I would have liked to know more background about Dax and the other characters from the earlier stories.  That is all me, not the book.  I felt what I really needed to know was provided in the narrative and in the dialogue, but I’m a reader who would rather experience a complete series – so I will go back to the beginning at some point soon.

Dax and Lissa make a quirky, unusual couple.  They both have issues, each has things from their pasts that still affect them today.  Of the two, Dax was the more mature, the ready to get on with life on the right track.  I found myself liking Dax far more than Lissa, even when she did the right thing later in the story.

There is a kind of instant-love between this couple who fall in love rather quickly but I got it so it wasn’t an issue to me.  The danger that Lissa is in is very real and follows her relentlessly.  At some point, she’ll have to face her past in order to plan a future with Dax – getting to that point is the journey this couple is on.  I enjoyed their romance, yet for me, I need to go back to the beginning and perhaps do a re-read to get the whole picture.  In any event. FOREVER WILD is an enjoyable romance with a touch of danger, and adorable puppies that steal scenes and hearts.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story.  It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
