Review – Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker 

Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I’m about to meet a new or new-to-me author’s writing for the first time, it’s a HUGE HIGH. The anticipation … the wonder … the unknown … it’s all such a RUSH!!! I finally met KA Tucker’s words in Until It Fades, and was WOWED by the depth and dominance of her writing. I REVELED in this story’s POWER. ALL-CONSUMING and AWE-INSPIRING, Until It Fades is a Cinderella story that casts a spell on the heart and soul.

I DEVOURED Until It Fades in a day. Hours was all it took to breathe in this book, inhaling the words like air, my feels the fumes that floated around me. This romance is a SLOW BURN and oh did I burn for this book!!! I was CAUGHT as the words pulled me in, CLAIMED by both a brave hero and heroine who I loved right away, and CAPTIVATED by this story that struck my soul and held my heart in its hands.

“Consider this your second chance. A way to redeem yourself, if you feel like you need it.”

If you had a second chance at love and life, would you take it? If you made mistakes, would you want redemption? A second chance is a gift to be spent on building a better life, and that’s what the fierce heroine in Until It Fades set out to do.

I ADORED and ADMIRED one of the strongest heroines I’ve ever read in Catherine. Like her Greek name, she is a warrior, a goddess of strength. Catherine puts the ‘hero’ in heroine, a young woman who made mistakes in her past and lives with them daily, but unexpectedly finds redemption one night when a stranger’s life collides with hers. Catherine goes from ‘Scarlett letter-stamped’ to savior in one night to a strange man who, perhaps, was not her accidental meeting but her fate.

Does he feel what I’m feeling, too? Is his heart racing right now? Or is it just me?

Brett, hot and humble hockey captain, is PURE PERFECTION. I LOVED this alpha with a huge heart!!! This man is a knight in shining armor but his hero is no damsel in distress.

With each encounter between Brett and Catherine meet, it’s a collision of chemistry.


I’m having a hard time breathing.

“Tell me you believe me.”

“I believe —”

He steals my last word with his mouth.

I could FEEL their MAGIC, this blend of smolder and sweetness, and it was one POTENT MIX. I morphed into lava, the beauty in these words made me FEEL them too. This prince and princess who have battled the odds need to ride off into the sunset together.


“I’ve never wanted anyone as much as I want you.”


Until It Fades is a fierce FAIRY TALE of FEELS that you can’t help but LOVE, a story that steals the heart from the start! KA Tucker instantly moved to my list of TOP AUTHORS. This author is a new top writer of mine, and I’m a fan for life. I can’t wait for more by KA Tucker!!!

This Cinderella tale with a twist was my happy, my heart, and my hope. Until It Fades is MAGIC in WORDS, words that MELTED ME. I fell in love over and over again while reading this STARS-IN-YOUR-EYES STORY of strength, survival, and second chances at life and love. I can’t stop smiling from this slow burn of a book that rendered me HOPELESSLY SPELLBOUND. I’m still FLOATING ON CLOUD NINE!!!

“It’s good to have dreams. Without dreams, we wouldn’t have goals. And without goals … what’s the point of living?”

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?
