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
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?
In my head, there is an island somewhere on the Oregon coast that houses the entire Decker clan and they are real, living people. I adore this family and every member in it.
That being said, if you haven’t read all the other books, this book is easily a standalone, although the beginning of it overlaps with Almost Perfect. The characters are family so there is overlap, even though the stories are independent of each other.
Anyway, Tucker Decker. Tucker is the son of Thea, that she had given up for adoption as a teen but came to live with her when he was a teen and the family found out he had been abused. He is the grandson of Chris and Gabe, patriarchs of this family and subjects of the first book in the Unexpected series which also includes Tucker’s parents.
Grown up Tucker was part of the Sinners of Seattle band, and while they are no longer a band the members are still close. They are family to each other. When tragedy strikes twice in a short time, Tucker is left as guardian for a precious baby girl. Sage is the baby’s aunt, and named by her sister as another guardian. To keep the baby safe from Sage and Sienna’s estranged parents, Sage and Tucker must live together and coparent her while under the scrutiny of the court system.
Ms Burgoa is a master at emotional storytelling. This book will break your heart and put it back together again. These characters are so real and raw, yet there is so much love surrounding this baby girl and the people raising her. Despite whatever conflicts arise between them, the Decker family is all about love and acceptance, and that is just what Tucker, Sage, and the baby all need, and it’s beautiful.
