Say You Still Love Me by K.A. Tucker
Expected Publication: August 6, 2019
Goodreads Summary: Life is a mixed bag for Piper Calloway.
On the one hand, she’s a twenty-nine-year-old VP at her dad’s multibillion-dollar real estate development firm, and living the high single life with her two best friends in a swanky downtown penthouse. On the other hand, she’s considered a pair of sexy legs in a male-dominated world and constantly has to prove her worth. Plus, she’s stuck seeing her narcissistic ex-fiancé—a fellow VP—on the other side of her glass office wall every day.
Things get exponentially more complicated for Piper when she runs into Kyle Miller—the handsome new security guard at Calloway Group Industries, and coincidentally the first love of her life.
The guy she hasn’t seen or heard from since they were summer camp counsellors together. The guy from the wrong side of the tracks. The guy who apparently doesn’t even remember her name.
Piper may be a high-powered businesswoman now, but she soon realizes that her schoolgirl crush is not only alive but stronger than ever, and crippling her concentration. What’s more, despite Kyle’s distant attitude, she’s convinced their reunion isn’t at all coincidental, and that his feelings for her still run deep. And she’s determined to make him admit to them, no matter the consequences.
Review: I’ve heard great things about K.A. Tucker’s books so I was really excited to get a chance to review an early copy of her newest book. The premise of this romance sounded so cute. I love the whole high school romance being reignited years later. Piper was a really strong female character in a business world typically dominated by men which of course meant that she had to deal with a few assholes who didn’t take her seriously. I wanted to punch Tripp square in the jaw for the way he acted around her. I loved Pipers friends from camp, Ashley and Christa. It’s so great that they were able to stay such good friends over the years. And Kyle was the perfect first true love. The book is written in alternating chapters between the past when Piper was 16 working as a camp counselor and the present when she is 29 and in the process of taking over her dad’s multibillion-dollar real estate development firm. I’m usually not that into that kind of story layout with the back and forth but I think it really worked well with this book. If you’re looking for a swoony romance, I suggest checking this book out when it releases on August 6th. I will definitely be reading more of K.A. Tucker’s books in the future.
I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
