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?

First and foremost, K.A. Tucker NEVER disappoints. The word, or any other word anywhere close to that, does not belong anywhere near her or her titles. Her books, to me anyways, have always deserved far more than a simple 5/5 rating (whether it be 5/5 stars, or 5/5 delicious cupcakes). Either or, she's an absolute wonder that I've been glad to read right from the beginning. I've loved her adult thriller titles, her new adult titles, and now with the release of UNTIL IT FADES, I've found a brand new sexy favorite to re-read over and over.

"No wonder people want the happily ever after between us. I want the happily ever after. Even if I'm having a hard time allowing myself to believe it can exist."

UNTIL IT FADES is perfect for fans who enjoyed HE WILL BE MY RUIN. It's protagonist, 24 year old waitress and single mother Catherine has only one goal in mind - to provide a wonderful life for her 5 year old daughter. However, one fateful encounter with a hockey icon ends up throwing her simple and excitement-free life upside down. After saving his life, she certainly doesn't expect to find him on her door step not long after, and certainly doesn't expect his fierce attraction for her.

I absolutely adored Catherine and Brett. They were a very seductive pair that certainly knew how to bring some pulse-pounding excitement to each of their encounters. They were a stunning duo, and in addition I also loved Catherine's dialogue with her daughter, Jack and Lou. Additionally, I absolutely loved learning more about Catherine and enjoyed the brief flashes of her past. It gave me a better insight on the kind of person she was, and I ultimately felt more sympathetic with her.

All in all, readers will absolutely love UNTIL IT FADES. It was a passionate, heartfelt, and incredibly well written title about love and trust.
