Until It Fades – K.A. Tucker



After reading The Simple Wild last year I knew I would be checking out some of the author’s other work.

Until It Fades wasn’t the same as The Simple Wild, it wasn’t as emotional or heart wrecking, instead it was a heartwarming and easy novel that left me wanting to read even more by this author.

A single mom falling in love with a hockey player checked already two of my all time favorite boxes. A wonderful cast and a story that was enchanting, especially in the second half of the book didn’t hurt either.

Both main characters were incredibly likable. Catherine did some questionable things during her teenage years, but the way she was portrayed as an adult made up for everything that happened in the past. Hard working, dedicated to her daughter, and doing her best leaving the past behind, she changes the status quo by rescuing Brett one foggy nigh. And nothing would be the same again.

Brett was pretty dreamy if I may say so! He had almost no flaws, and was just an all around great guy. And in a way exactly what Catherine needed in her life – a fairy tale ending. Him falling head over heels in love was pretty adorable, and totally matched his personality.

The novel was one of these feel good books that leave me happy and smiling. Because of the slower beginning it didn’t quite reach AWESOMENESS status but all in all it was a wonderful romance that should be on people’s reading list especially if the single parent, and sports romance trope is of interest.

I wouldn’t say it was an overly unique story, but the overall feels is why I would recommend it. Until It Fades is a light-hearted and touching love-story. Perfect for between darker and more emotional reads.


Until It Fades – K.A. Tucker


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?
