Blog Tour: Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker

I am so excited to be a part of this blog tour with the U.S. and Canada. K.A Tucker is one of my favourite authors, so when I was asked to participate in this tour, it was a no brainer! Be sure to check out the rest of the stops along the way, and check out the giveaway at the end of this post!

Goodreads Synopsis:

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?

My Review:

I am a huge fan of K.A Tucker, with One Tiny Breath series my all time fave. And I know you're going to hate me for saying this, but I was disappointed with He Will Be My Ruin, and I was hoping for Until It Fades to be my redemption read . And let me tell you this... it was!! I am back to raving about Mrs Tucker and her incredible talent as a writer and story weaver and picture painter. 
Heres my reasons:
Writer - creates such a unique novel which flows flawlessly and seamlessly. 
Story weaver - knocks the ball out of the park with these fantastic characters that are realistic and genuine. And a plot that can keep the reader engaged from beginning to end. 
And picture painter - detail in everything to help reader along and feeling as though you are there and part of the book.
Just incredible! 

Catherine is a small town girl with a history that is known to many (for all the wrong reasons ) and she wants something different. She wants to forget about her past, but her young daughter,and her paycheck to paycheck job make that almost impossible. Then Brett comes along and things start to change and maybe he is what she needed to move on all along.

I really liked how likeable both these main characters are. Catherine is a hard working young single mom just trying to do her best and the love she has for her daughter is clear. Brett is a down to earth guy with a connection to Canada (and being a Canadian too, I loved the Canadian thrown in here and there!) And the relationship they build is a great one. It's fun, flirty and playful.  I read a lot of their interactions with a smile on my face.
It didn't stop there with great characters though. Keith, Catherine's friend is a great guy too. He's been there since the beginning and Catherine could not imagine a life in which he wasn't a part of. Another memorable character is Lou.  She stood up and helped Catherine when she needed it most and she's a smart, kind helping hand. And her no BS attitude is awesome. These characters plus more make for such a dynamic novel.

There's something romantic and sexy about Until it Fades. You'll get that giddy feeling when reading the book and when an author can make you feel, honest to goodness feel, during a novel, you know it's a good one.  KA tucker has done it again, and I can't thank her enough for writing some of the best books I've had the pleasure of reading.


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.
