Praise for Until It Fades:
“Touching and complex…Tucker unerringly hits all the high notes of romance—the spark, the emotional depth, the mental and physical struggles—while creating a couple who seem perfectly attuned even when they are in conflict.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
“A fantastic contemporary romance featuring dysfunction, lies, regrets and illicit transgressions. Set in a small, gossipy Pennsylvania town, with intense and intriguing plot twists and formidably engaging characters, she keeps readers on their toes. But it’s definitely her knight in shining armor and flawed heroine with trust issues, plus an impressive pint-sized costar, who rule every page of this unforgettable story.” (RT Book Reviews)
“Lovely, sexy, and well-written, with a great cast of finely-drawn characters. This is a modern-day Cinderella story that will make you hope again. I enjoyed every page.” (Amy Harmon, New York Times bestselling author )
Praise for Surviving Ice:
“Surviving Ice has it all: suspense, romance, forgiveness, and second chances all rolled into one.” (San Diego Book Review)
“Entertaining and enthralling, lovers of suspense titles will be captivated by the suspenseful plot of this story. At the same time, the romance between this--somewhat unlikely and yet equally explosive--pair is sure to keep your romance lust sated.” (The Romance Reviews, TOP PICK)
Praise for Chasing River:
"A gripping addition to the Burying Water series…Tucker’s fans will tear through this passionate, fast-paced tale and be ready for more." (Booklist)

"A smart and sexy thrill ride...Tucker's best writing yet." (Karina Halle New York Times bestselling author on Becoming Rain)
Praise for Burying Water:
"Another addictive triumph for the impressively prosaic Tucker." (Globe and Mail)
“Tucker deftly steers the damsel-in-(serious, nearly fatal, possibly mob-related)-distress-rescued-by-a-knight-in-shining armor storyline, making these star-crossed lovers compelling. A sexy romantic, gangster-tinged page-turner.” (Kirkus Reviews on Burying Water)
"Unique, engrossing, and heartbreaking. Burying Water is a mesmerizing read that will keep you captivated until the very last page." (Rachel Van Dyken #1 New York Times bestselling author)

Until It Fades was a sweet burn type of love story that moved along at just the right pace to keep me intrigued and engaged. I found myself reading it over the course of an afternoon because I just didn't want to put it down.
I was captured from the very beginning and I found that it was perfectly balanced with the flashbacks of the past that revealed Cath's past bit by bit. And being honest I was a fan of Brett from the very first time he shows up at Cath's door - a really big fan. He was every bit the book boyfriend I was hoping he'd be, never letting my love for him waver... not even for a sentence.
And in true Tucker fashion Cath and Brett were surrounded by a well developed cast of secondary characters.
Well written and well developed, Until It Fades reminded me of all the reasons I was drawn to K.A. Tucker's writing style many books ago.
I cannot wait to add this one to my shelf with all the other five star gems she has written.
Until It Fades does an amazing job of showing people in tough situations but still coming off as incredibly uplifting. You feel so much for these characters and their struggles that you're just that much more connected to their happiness. I found myself smiling and internally cheering for these characters when things went right in their lives.
I loved Catherine and how strong and self sufficient she was. I also loved the amazing support system she's built herself, from Lou to Keith to her brother and her dad, to even Misty (at times). Her mom had her moments when I really wanted to dislike her, but in the end, she's just a parent, trying to do what she believes is best and you can't hate her too much for that.
Brett is the ultimate perfect guy. Everywhere you look, he's all kinds of perfect and dreamy. The best part is, he feels that way about Catherine. He sees her for everything she is and loves the whole package.
Brett and Catherine's love story is not without obstacles, but I loved the way they dealt with everything that came their way. Honesty and communication drive this relationship (except that one big secret) and it was so refreshing to see that. Often we see so much miscommunication in books, where problems could have been easily fixed with just a simple conversation and I loved that Catherine and Brett actually talked to each other.
This book made me so happy, it's a perfect beach read!!!
Until It Fades is about a young single mother who’s been through a lot named Catherine Wright who one foggy night helps save the life of a famous hockey player Brett Madden.
Of course when Catherine first saves Brett she has no idea who he is until officers arrive.
<b><I>“Something good will come from the bad. It always does. That’s how life balances itself out. That’s how people keep going.”</I></b>
Catherine try’s to keep her identity a secret but eventually it comes out, and when it does everything sure dose change. All the characters were perfect for this story. Catherine’s friends and boss were the best, especially being there after everything she had been through, and Brett, he wouldn’t be where he is today if it wasn’t for the love and support from his parents.
<b><I>“If this is being smart, then you need to be stupid. Be an absolute idiotic moron. Be like me.”</I></b>
one thing I really loved was the slow connection that formed between Brett and Catherine it was just right and not rushed at all. Then Brenna, Catherine’s daughter she was so sweet, cute and really funny at times. I just loved her sweetness.
<b><I>“You’re perfect. You know that, right?” When I don’t answer, he pulls back, just far enough to meet my eyes, his nose nuzzling against mine affectionately. “I wouldn’t want to change one single thing about you. Ever.”</I></b>
I’m really glad that I read this book, it is a good read. Brett and Catherine’s story really is a sweet one and sure shows how anything can be possible if you work hard enough, and miracles do come true.
<b><I>“It’s good to have dreams. Without dreams, we wouldn’t have goals. And without goals . . . what’s the point of living?”</I></b>

This is a nicely written romance, with good pacing and poignant emotions. Catherine’s character is well developed and her experiences are slowly revealed throughout the book and some of those experiences are a little surprising. Brett is kind, gentle and understanding. For a man raised in the limelight he has a down to earth attitude. His situation is difficult but all he wants to do is protect Catherine to the best of his ability.
I love the relationship Catherine has with her family, it’s fraught and difficult and at the same time supportive and loving, though it took a long time to get there. For those of us with difficult teenaged years we can understand how easy it is to fall out with our parents, but then slowly find your way back to them, even if it’s not smooth sailing.
Though this is about an improbably story, it still manages to feel real and believable.
A very enjoyable read.
The story explores the connection that has been forged between Brett and Cath. They are from vastly different backgrounds but in many ways their characters are similar. I loved the secondary characters who all contributed hugely tote warmth and substance of the story.
So, why not 5 stars? Ok, so it's no secret that I like dual pov books best but that is my personal preference so I happily accept that some prefer single pov BUT in this book I honestly felt at least some of it should have been from Brett's viewpoint. I needed more of him and his headspace. This is a slow burn romance, which is great, but I felt like I didn't know him very well even at the end.
Having said all that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would love to see other characters get their stories (I'm looking at Jack, Keith or Misty here!)
HEA? Yes, but I would have loved to have seen further into their future.
Catherine unexpectedly ends up in the media spotlight, and finds herself attracted to Brett. I loved their instant connection, and how Brett goes about trying to win her trust. Other favourite characters are definitely Jack and Brenna, Catherine's brother and daughter. I also enjoyed the little plot twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Great read.
