Until I Fall by Claudia Y. Burgoa (Release Blitz with Review and Giveaway)

Title: Until I Fall
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Adult Contemporary
Release Date: April 3, 2017


ER doctor, Aspen Zimmerman is no stranger to pain and loss. The tragic death of her fiancΓ© catapults her life into a promise of healing—of being the best damn ER doctor her hospital has ever encountered. After all, it makes her feel like she's making a difference when she couldn't so long ago. And when her most beloved patient suffers horrifically, all Aspen cares about is healing her—even though her son has a special way of igniting a fire she thought fizzled out long ago.

As a private security officer, Anderson Hawkins puts everyone's life before his own. With his mother fighting for her life, Anderson is hellbent on finding a way to save her. On the plus side, he gets to spend his time with a sexy and fiery ER doctor who would do anything for his mother. Though Aspen seems to be pulling back—away from any feelings she may have for him. Now, it's up to Anderson to prove that they can build a future together if they both let go of the past. Can Aspen trust her heart with someone when she already feels "dead on arrival?"

This was a decent read, I have to say that the beginning of the book was predictable because of the blurb but nonetheless it was an emotional start to the book. I love the young love of Aspen and Michael and yes I cried when he was killed off, but like I said the blurb alluded to it so it wasn't a shocker nor is my mentioning it a spoiler. What did shock me was that it was eleven years from Michael's death to the present time.

Anderson...yum! Anderson is the son of Sophia, Aspen's neighbor, who is sick with pancreatic cancer and only has a short time left to live. The relationship between Sophia an Anderson was a wonderful mother/son relationship their love and respect for one another was evident in everything that was said and done. Anderson and Aspen met when he was visiting his mother, there was an instant connection between the two but Aspen was having no part of it. Aspen felt that she had her one true love and that she would never love's to painful once they leave.

While I liked this book there were a few things that didn't make me love the book and I guess the most important one would be the chemistry between Anderson an Aspen, or lack there of. It was mentioned a few times that there was a spark or connection between the two of them but I didn't feel it, I felt it at the beginning between Aspen and Michael and it made me understand why she kept herself closed off but I didn't feel it when Aspen and Anderson were together. One thing that I really enjoyed was characters from other books were included in this one, it's always nice to see someone pop up in future books so you can see what is happening with them now, but if this is your first read by Claudia Burgoa do not worry this can be read as a standalone without any fact I believe that it is listed as a standalone and you would only notice others if you have read about them before.
