Publication date: April 1st 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
I gave my heart to a Navy SEAL.
He took it with him to his grave.
Eleven years later, ignoring the yawning void is as automatic as breathing. Working brutal hours, dating a comfortably commitment-phobic guy, hanging with my best friends. Anything until exhaustion—or an extra glass of wine—claims my consciousness.
My neighbor’s handsome, enigmatic son invades my comfort zone.
He says he’s a tattoo artist. But Anderson Hawkins’ piercing green eyes, mastery of the short answer, weird schedule, and military ink tell a different story.
His touch ignites a long-dead flame inside me. A flame I’m afraid to examine too closely, even as I’m drawn to its heat.
I retired from Delta Force
Now I work at a high-intelligence security agency
But working undercover isn’t the adrenaline rush it used to be.
For one thing, my Mom’s illness shifted my priorities to finding a way to save her. For another, her neighbor next door, whose prickly defenses belie the unflinchingly caring heart underneath, has slipped under my skin. Now my mission is to convince her it’s safe to unlock her heart. Because I’m ready to give her mine.
Note: This contemporary romance contains a wary, overworked doctor who’s a military widow in every way but name, an ex-military hero accustomed to treading dangerous ground, brought together by a few unexpected twists and turns—and maybe the machinations of a cute dog.

Claudia Burgoa is back with another heart wrenching emotional book that every reader can relate to in some way. Until I Fall is one of those books that explores all types of relationships, whether it be romantic, friendship, or family. All these relationships are what molds our lives and defines our individuality.
Aspen Zimmerman had it all. She was just beginning her journey to becoming a doctor. She was madly in love and soon to be married when tragedy struck. Losing her fiancé altered her life and changed her. For the next eleven years, she floundered through life emotionally numb. When she meets her neighbor Anderson Hawkins, her heart begins to wake up. Can she handle the emotions that go along with what her heart is feeling. Is she capable of treading through the dangerous waters that come with being in a relationship? She wants to but knows she’s broken. Only she has the power to fix what is broken.
Anderson Hawkins has come home to take care of his mother. He’s fighting to keep her alive and make her final days joyful. His former career as a ranger and present career as a security specialist has kept him from family and committed relationships. When he meets Aspen, he falls head over heels in love. He will do anything to make their relationship work. He has learned the hard way that life is precious and each moment counts. Can he convince Aspen that their love for one another is worth the risk?
Until I Fall is much more than a romantic love story. It’s about family relationships and how important they are in our lives. It is also about the importance of friendship and understanding. I thoroughly loved every aspect of this book. Claudia Burgoa once again touched my heart in many ways.
