Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker (EPUB)
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.
Until It Fades
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?
Until it Fades is my first K.A. Tucker read. I have heard great things about her books. Until it Fades is a swoony, sweet, slow building Cinderella-type romance. The book is well written and the story was easy to follow. I found Catherine and Brett romance interesting and enjoyed how they interacted with each other and other characters. So while it did take some time to get going and it was a bit predictable, it really was a sweet story with some surprises that made me glad I stuck with it. I loved both Catherine and Brett, the supporting characters, and all the interactions with Catherine’s adorable daughter.
K.A. Tucker’s stories always draw me in. This one was much lighter in feeling than many of her previous books and I really enjoyed it!
