REVIEW – SAY YOU STILL LOVE ME by K.A. Tucker

SYNOPSIS

The bestselling author of The Simple Wild and Keep Her Safe and “master of steamy romance” (Kirkus Reviews) delivers a sizzling novel about an ambitious and high-powered executive who reconnects with her first love: the boy who broke her heart. 

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, and coincidentally the first love of her life.

The guy she hasn’t seen or heard from since they were summer camp counselors 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 still alive and strong, 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.

 

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Publisher}

Because, even after all these years, with college and boyfriends, and my career and my engagement to David, Kyle Miller has always been a sliver in my heart, a shadow in my thoughts. A lingering “what if” that I have never been able to truly shake.

 

”SAY YOU STILL LOVE ME” is a sweet and steamy second chance romance that is both young adult and adult contemporary. It started off a bit too slow for me but luckily towards the second half of the story the plot started to rev up and I couldn’t wait to find out how it all would end. There were surprises I didn’t see coming.

 

 

Piper Calloway and Kyle Miller met and fell instantly in love during their shared summer as counselors at camp Wawa. It’s hard to believe that you can find your true soulmate at sixteen, but as the story unfolds it becomes clear that what they shared was more than a summer fling.

 

 

The story goes back and forth between present and past. We see how adult Piper and Kyle are living their lives and it’s obvious that thirteen years of separation has done absolutely nothing to erase the feelings they had for each other. I did feel that there may have been a little too much emphasis played on the back story which created the slowness for me. Maybe I am getting a bit tired of the switch from past to present in most of the books I have been reading lately.

 

 

Luckily plot twists take place towards the end, which explains Kyle’s actions in the past and why he suddenly reappears in Piper’s life. Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable read. It’s definitely worth adding to your summer reads list!

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
