Us After You by Claudia Y. Burgoa ~ Book Review

We have to raise my niece together. What could go wrong?

Us After You by Claudia Burgoa is now live!

Emotional, endearing, and full of romance, don't miss this brand new standalone heart-wrenching story by USA Today Bestselling author Claudia Burgoa!

Tucker Decker is an infamous billionaire.
He’s ruthless, impulsive, cold-hearted, and hot as sin.
He likes his relationships casual and his commitments without strings.
But when it comes to his former bandmates, he’d do anything for them.
Tragedy demands sacrifice.
I’m an independent woman.
I’ve learned never to ask for help.
And I certainly didn't want it from Tucker.
When my sister left us both to care for my niece,
we realize co-parenting may be harder than we thought.
Especially when we're fighting a desire for each other.
When the ghosts of our past come back to haunt us, will we find that there's still an us after all?

I have been waiting for Tucker's story for a while, I loved his parent's story in UNCUT, which was the first book by Claudia I had read and instantly fell in love with her writing.

Tucker Decker and Sage Hayward's lives are very different. Tucker had a picture perfect childhood with loving parents until that reality came to a bitter end and truths and lies were revealed. As a teenager Tucker and his friends played in a band called the Sinners of Seattle, they turned into their own little family and have always been there for one another no matter what.

Sage's childhood was vastly different, she grew up in a very wealthy family being raised by nannies and never truly loved or shown affection by her parents. She is currently taking care of her grandparents in Baker’s Creek, Oregon after her grandfather had a stroke and she is helping with the running of their bookstore.

This story takes place over several years, at the beginning of the book the author does a really great job of setting everything up for us. Over a three year period we get to see what is happening in each of their lives, the good and the not so good, and we get to witness each of the encounters Tucker and Sage have and how the chemistry between them crackles.

It's not a spoiler when I say that Sage and Tucker are tasked with raising a baby together because it's right there in the book synopsis, I will not tell you whose baby or why they are the one's raising her, just know that everything they do is with the baby's best interest first and foremost and it's so wonderful to see how everyone gathers together to do what is best for her.

I thought going into this book it was going to be a little on the lighter side but I will admit that there were quite a few times I needed tissues. If you are thinking this is going to be light and fluffy you are wrong, this story is deeply emotional, yes I did laugh out loud a few times but the overall feel of the story is much more heavier then a rom-com.

I always recommend Claudia Burgoa's books because they are books that make you laugh, cry, cheer, and just outright feel and for me that is the best part of a book. I hope grab a copy of this book for yourself.

Happy Reading!!!
