Thank you for joining us today for the UNTIL IT FADES K.A. Tucker Blog Tour. It is a huge honor to be a part of this tour because I have been fan of Kathleen’s for a few years. It all began with Ten Tiny Breath’s and I was an instant admirer. K.A. Tucker has a. certain writing style that is multi-layered and completely fascinating, you cannot help but get drawn into the world that she creates and you only want to keep reading more. Especially with her newest release UNTIL IT FADES. I don’t know when I enjoyed a book so much that I was dreading finishing it. So, please check out our review of this fantastic book and don’t forget to check out the other blogs on this tour and to enter the giveaway at the end of the post. Good Luck!
As I have mentioned before I am a big fan of K. A. Tucker. I have been for many years. Her novels have always had the power to pull every emotion from me and leave me happily spent. It’s like I cannot get enough of the exquisite emotional roller coaster ride that I am set for every time I get her book in my hands. And UNTIL IT FADES is no exception. I don’t think anyone could have prepared me for how much I would adore this book and it’s characters. This Cinderella-like story has my heart and I wish that everyone would read it because of the hope it brings for every one.
What I enjoyed most about this story is it’s main character Catherine Wright and when you get introduced to her you realize that she is in the middle of a bad situation that is only going to get worse, and unfortunately for her it does. The scandal that she becomes embroiled in effects her and her family for the rest of their lives….even years later on a dark and foggy night when Catherine saves a man from burning to death in a crash. She wants her heroic act to remain a secret, doesn’t want her past coming up to haunt her or her loved ones again, but those wishes are mute when the man she saves wants to thank her for saving him.
What ensues is a relationship that neither one expected but oh my is it the stuff that made my heart beat a step faster and made me sigh in breathless anticipation. I could not get enough of Catherine and Brett. They held my complete attention and I did not want to stop seeing their story unfold before my eyes and it made me the happiest human after many tears.
It is this special talent that K.A. Tucker has in spades. She was able to create these characters that I wanted to know, wanted to root for and wanted to see happy. Catherine was a perfect example of a decent person trying to make the best of what her life was. Then this wonderful man comes into her life and everything slowly changes. It’s not the Insta-love that can annoy but the deep-resounding love that comes from a true connection. The slow burning pull between her and Brett is the stuff dreams are made of and the supporting cast was the icing on the cake.
I could go on and on but I really cannot do the book justice. Anyone that is looking for a perfect summer read need look no further because UNTIL IT FADES is the book, the only book you will need. A book that gives us all a little more hope in our lives.

ABOUT UNTIL IT FADES:
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 three thousand outside of tourist season).
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: 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. There’s an immediate connection, and it’s more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It’s something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something she 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?
K.A. Tucker is the author of He Will Be My Ruin and the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series. She currently resides outside of Toronto with her husband, two beautiful girls, and a Chug.
