Now & Forever is the second book in Mary Connealy's Wild at Heart series. It brings Shannon Wilde and Matthew Tucker together when Shannon sees "Tucker" getting attacked by a grizzly bear and attempts to rescue him by throwing him and herself over a cliff into the Slaughter River. This river is one that no one has ever made it out alive, but Shannon and Tucker do, which is the beginning of a new relationship between the two of them. There are some strange things that start to happen on Shannon's homestead as they get to know each other, and Shannon is lucky to have Tucker by her side to get to find out who is behind those things and to protect her as well as her homestead.
I enjoyed the relationship between Shannon and Tucker. They get married with not really knowing each other well, and as you get further into the book it is clear that they have truly fallen for each other. I'm always leery when I choose to review a book that is the second in a series. I found parts of this book to be confusing because I had not read the 1st book in this Wild at Heart series. With that said, I did enjoy this book.
