Carol [Goodreads Addict]

Us After You is by Claudia Y. Burgoa. I want to say that I rate the books I read by my feelings, my emotions. For me to connect to a book, I have to feel, and this book made me feel so much. You know when you put your book down to try to be productive but you can’t because your mind is constantly on the characters of the book you are reading, that the author has done her job well. And with this book, Ms. Burgoa has most definitely done her job well!

Oh my heart! This story moved me to tears and then to laughter and to heartwarming feels! You are going to run the gamut of emotions with this new story from Ms. Burgoa!

This is Tucker and Sage's story.  But it is so much more!  It's the definition of love and choosing your own family.  You don't have to be related by blood to feel that connection, that belonging.

Tucker was the lead singer of the Sinners of Seattle.  His history is scarred with not feeling like enough. From being shuffled from fa

It feels like I've been waiting a long time for Tucker Decker's story and the author really delivered!

"Special is too simple of a word to describe her. She's mesmerizing."

Tucker Decker and Sage Heywood are thrust together as co-parents to a baby that isn't theirs. The chemistry is there between them from the first moment they meet. However, Sage has already been married to a man, who on the surface, is very much like Tucker, so she's just not interested in getting involved with him. Nonetheless

Us After You by Claudia Burgoa was an overwhelmingly emotional journey for me. This story is about relationships and love at so many level. Loving yourself. Loving friends and families of all kinds. Loving someone enough to change your life. The author has broken me and healed me with her heartaching and inspiring writing.

Tucker Decker is man of many talents. Celebrity band member of Sinners of Seattle. Philanthropist. Successful businessman. But he is an incomplete, unsatisfied and broken man i

This is one of those books I wish would never end. I fell so totally and completely for these characters that they, without a doubt, will always live in my heart. I knew from the first, short, four-page chapter that this story was going to devastate me, and I cherished every second of this journey. From heart wrenching and devastating to inspiring and euphoric, I feasted on every word of this emotional journey and was torn between reading quickly to find out how things resolved and slowly savori ...more

Us after you is an emotionally charged novel that will have you laughing and crying with each chapter! The angst, the hurt and the love laced in each page grips you and doesn’t let you go even after the last word is read! This book will undo you completely!

This book is a beautiful mesh of Claudia’s writing style! No one can write such beautiful emotional books like Burgoa can! Her writing touches on topics that we face in every day life! She brings the nitty gritty ugliness of the world and sho

Freaking Claudia! She made me cry again. The feels is Us After You are enough to make a person seek medical advice. I've read two versions of this book (perks of being a pain in the butt to the author) and I am still in love. I still felt every letter. Let me back track!

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.

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 sto

I am on an incredible high, I went through a rollercoaster of emotions and I have all the feels after devouring Us After You. Us After You is a beautiful, emotionally charged book that made my heart ache and smile. The storyline is brilliantly crafted and unique, sweet, sexy, heartbreaking, charming and oh so swoon worthy. This is a story of love, healing, making sacrifices for the ones you love and forgiveness.

I could not put this book down, I read it in one sitting! This was a definite slow burn, but the journey was EVERYTHING!!! Tucker and Sage are thrown into an unconventional relationship due to circumstances beyond their control. Although they are attracted to each other, they choose not to do anything about it as to not make waves and make their situation worse than it is; until they decide they can't fight their attraction anymore.

This was such a touching story and I highly r

Wow! Just wow! This one has all the feels you could want in a story! Love is all consuming, when you find it you realize you can’t live without it. Tucker has never loved anyone in life enough to really let go of his past. Sage is too afraid to ever love again because of her past. But when fate throws them together, can they both learn to live in the present? This is the story of a family that love built. It’s emotional. It’s sad. It’s the reality of life. It is full of heartache and unimaginabl ...more

Oh, my heart!

I don't know why I am so surprised every time one of Claudia's books grabs hold of my heart! It happens with every book I read of hers, and Us After You was no different. It was emotional and angsty filled with pain and hurt woven in with a breathtaking, yet heartbreakingly beautiful love story!

Sage and Tucker's book wasn't what I expected if I'm honest but that's not a bad thing. It was so much more than I expected. I got so lost within these pages, I managed to devour the book i

A rocky start with a confusing and cluttered beginning made this a tough book to get into. I found myself circling around to go back and re-read parcels too many times. First of all, it was pitched as a standalone and, in my opinion, it most certainly was not. It's more a spin-off of a group of previous books where relevant characters play a part.

The real draw doesn't take hold until almost halfway in and by then I was totally unbalanced and struggling to continue. I held strongly determined to

Claudia Burgoa did the very thing I was hoping for when I saw that a character from one of her past books, Tucker Decker, was going to be the leading man in Us After You...Yay..lots to look forward to with him in the mix!

Tucker Decker is all grown up now and what a swoony man he smart, in control, multifaceted in his businesses and life in general. One of the former band member of the now defunct Seattle Sinners, he is tall, dark and handsome, privileged, cocky and trying to keep out of

Received in exchange for a honest review.

This book starts with a heartbreaking moment and ends so tenderly and beautifully. Claudia Burgoa has a way of bringing books to life and having you live and experience the emotions and moments of her characters.

Here we have the gang of Sinners of Seattle back and now we get Tucker’s story. We see how he ended up in Colorado as other past books alluded to and why he is there. We get to truly see who Tucker is and just melt into a pile of goo because of th

I don’t really know where to begin with the review for Us After You by Claudia Burgoa.  This book is a little hard to follow during the first half and is going in the beginning.  It jumps back and forth in time and it is hard to keep track of who is talking during the dialogue.  The second half of the book is amazing, and I couldn’t put it down.  There was heartbreaking drama and a slow burning romance that was swoon worthy.  The main female character was a little cold and uncaring towards the p ...more

I received a complimentary ARC - early release copy of this book in Kindle format from the author for review purposes.
So this book is hard to review because its part of a series and honestly while it starts in the beginning of the middle of the last book, at times if I had not read that book I would have still been lost. So while its supposed to stand alone, truly you should read the previous book about Alex and Hannah. Hannah was in a band, and this story is about the band and one of her best f

This book! I’m pretty sure my heart is in shreds but in the end in a good way. But oh wow!! Be prepared for tissues. And maybe have a good box of chocolates around too. But also, be prepared to fall in love. Madly in love. Even more so with the group of friends we already know and love. And you’ll fall for Tucker even more then you already have.

I was so excited to finally have Tucker's story and I absolutely loved it! We first met him as the young man who had been adopted as a baby, but after a tragic turn of events when he was a teen, was rescued and brought back into the Colthurst-Decker-Bradley family fold. He has never gotten over the feeling of being abandon and feels closer and more in common with his bandmates from the Sinners Of Seattle. They have made poor choices in the past but are all working toward a better life. When one ...more

This is not your normal romance!!!!

Now that is out of the way let me tell you what this is. This story is life. It is unconventional, it is emotional, it is learning to love yourself, learning to love a child, learning to love with your whole being. It is learning to trust after you have been hurt by the ones you should be able to trust. It is everything difficult, emotional, joyous, and sorrowful in life beautifully written in this story.

Where to begin.. Like others have stated the book started off a little hard to follow, but having read Ms. Burgoa before I knew there had to be a reason it was written as it was. Yep, by half way through it was all clicking together and I ended up reading another amazing story from this author. You can read the synopsis and get a really good grasp of what the storyline is about, but what it doesn’t say is how emotional and heartfelt the book is.

I love all of the characters but Tucker and Sage will hold a special place in my heart. I loved their slow-burn romance. They have both been through so much and deserve a HEA. I didn't want this book to end!!

4 Star Review of Us After You by Claudia Y Burgoa
This was Tucker Decker and Sage Hayward’s story and what a story it is, ticking quite a few boxes for me.

This book got to me on numerous levels; it was funny, sad, emotional and the chemistry between Tucker and Sage was intense as it built. Can they deny what is staring them both in the face? Or will they give in to the desire that is burning between them?

This is a story of self discovery, of facing ones past and moving forward into the future, i

I voluntarily reviewed an advance complimentary copy of this book.

US AFTER YOU is an emotional rollercoaster as we ride every high and hit the withdrawal symptoms that the character endures. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page-turning story. I was hooked—sometimes laughing, sometimes tearing up, and sometimes telling them to stop it! This book was heart-wrenching in its emotional highs and lows of the two main characters’ struggles as they help each other try to get what they

Phew... where do I even start with this? I didn't like it. I didn't like it at all. HOWEVER, I can appreciate the quality of the writing, the depth of emotion, and the little breadcrumbs the author left along the way. For me, the start is tedious, confusing, and completely void of romance. These two characters don’t even meet until more than 25% of the way in - and it is NOT a short book. It improves as it goes on, but I had already disconnected by the time it got there. I saw moments of greatne ...more

Oh my gosh are you guys in for an emotional ride with Us After You. Tucker, Nana and the rest of the Sinners are back in this emotionally gripping and heart wrenching story of loss, love, sacrifice and family. It’s the story of Tucker, Sage and one sweet baby that brings everyone together.

Tucker was all kinds of swoony and Sage was a sassy, and strong independent woman. Although she hadn’t had the easiest life, the potential her sister and even Tucker and the rest of the Sinners saw in her to r

Us After You was a very intense story! I didn’t read the book that Tucker came from, so it took me a while to figure out who everyone was. It was distracting for me because I’m a little crazy with stuff like that, but I think normal people will be fine. Lol. I really enjoyed this heartbreaking love story. It wasn’t just a story of two people falling in love with each other. We saw a lot of familial love. We saw a new couple come together, a family that has enough love that they bring others into ...more

I was immediately amazed by Tucker in Almost Perfect and here I fell in love with him. We have the opportunity of really dive into his life and we can understand a lot about him.

I have shamefully been neglecting a favorite Author from a few years back, Claudia Burgoa. Her Unexpected Series was one of my favorite reads as her ability to pull raw emotions from the unconventional romances of her characters hooked me from the first book. Now to Us After You.
This book has everything, funny, sad (heartbreakingly so) and most importantly love. Tucker Decker is swoon-worthy as a man that truly steps up to the plate for his "family", especially baby Mae. With the help - or inter
