Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.
Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.
For a time.
But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.
Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?
WOW! Just WOW! Slow burn romances aren’t my favorite, but there was just something about KA Tucker’s UNTIL IT FADES that was SO WORTH the wait! Just brilliant! A fairy tale romance that will fill your heart with so much hope, joy, and love. I wholeheartedly ADORED Cath and Brett’s story! It brought tears to my eyes and a bright light to my soul. THIS was K.A. Tucker PERFECTION!
I’m embarrassed to say that even though I received an advanced copy of UNTIL IT FADES, I didn’t pick it up and start it right away. There is just something about Tucker’s writing that completely incapacitates me. I get these book hangovers like crazy, and I think about the book, the characters, the plot for days after I finish. There was also the fact that I wanted to savor Catherine and Brett’s story. I heard early on from some blogger friends that they love love loved this book and that I NEED to read it now, so I relented, thought I’d bite the bullet and dive right in.
After I finished, I was kicking myself for worries early on. I craved every word like it was the last. I immersed myself in this book and I never wanted to come back to reality. This book right here, and all of the incredible emotion it dragged out of me, is what makes K.A. Tucker one of my all time FAVORITE authors. No matter the genre, this author KILLS it every single freaking time, leaving me in a pile of feels and no way out.
If the book cover or synopsis doesn’t reel you in, then the author’s name at the bottom of the book should do it! I have so much trust in this author, that the book cover or book synopsis is irrelevant. Ms. Tucker writes it. I read it. It’s as simple as that. UNTIL IT FADES might be a slow-burner romance, but it certainly packs enough punch in the FEELS department to keep me engaged the whole way through. This story was UNFORGETTABLE! This story was BEAUTIFUL! This story was EVERYTHING!
