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?


Until It Fades is another brilliant story by K.A. Tucker. She continues to amaze me time after time with her eloquent writing style that completely sucks the reader into the story. After reading the first chapter, I knew Tucker was going to get a solid 5 stars out of me again. How is that even possible after one chapter? I'm not really sure, but you'd better read this novel to find out! 

Even though the story has a bit of the cliche love story behind it, the characters are interesting, entertaining, and complex. I do have a bit of a soft spot for romance stories, so this one was definitely right up my alley. I loved the family drama mixed with the traumatic accident that brings the two main characters together. There were a few slow spots in the middle, but nothing too noticeable. 

Until It Fades is a well written novel about a fairy tale romance with swoon-worthy characters. I loved this novel from start to finish and would highly recommend it to readers who love romance novels and readers who have enjoyed other novels from K.A. Tucker. Thank you to Atria Books and NetGalley for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 5/5
