Until It Fades

About the Book:
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?
This book gave me so much life!!! I loved everything about it!
Catherine has had a rough go of it in the past and is just trying to keep her head above water for her daughter and herself. Once Brett comes into her life, she’s afraid her whole world will be turned upside down again.
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!!!
