Say You Still Love Me
By K.A. Tucker
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.
I have been a fan of K.A. Tucker for many years. I have devoured everyone of her books and walked away astonished by the depth of her storytelling and sense of romance. Say Your Still Mine is another fantastic addition to her title collections.
Say Your Still Mine is a second chance contemporary romance with a seasoning of mature YA romance and New Adult romance. The story follows a duel timeline of the past and present blended perfectly to keep the reader intrigued with the present but intensely connected to the past.
Piper Calloway was sent to Camp Wawa to be a camp counselor when she was sixteen. Rather than going to a camp for privileged children, she is going to the camp her mother went to as a child. Her parents want her to experience how the normal world spins. Although her parents have worldly wisdom, they are far from the perfect family. Her father is a workaholic, her older brother is estranged from the family and living across the world teaching English. Her parents are struggling with marital problems and the best solution for all them is to take a summer break.
Going to Camp Wawa changes Piper’s life. She learned valuable life lessons and found the true meaning of friendship. She met her soulmate, Kyle Miller, a boy from the other side of the tracks. She fell deeply in love and experienced passion for the first time. It all ended once summer was over. She has always wondered why Kyle dropped off the face of the earth and never tried to contact her. She kept in contact with her two of her closest friends from camp but lost touch with others. What happened that summer changed all of their lives in one way or another.
Thirteen years later her career is on the fast track. She’s destined to take over her father’s company but first she must prove herself to her father and other co-workers. While her career is challenging it is also stalled because of one person. Dealing with the frustrations in the office is one thing but when she spots Kyle Miller in her building working as a security guard it takes a new direction. At first he denies he ever knew her until he couldn’t.
Life has changed a lot in thirteen years but Piper and Kyle’s love for another is stronger than ever. They just have to find a new mutual ground. They also have to go back to the past and unbury the secrets they left behind at camp in order to move forward.
K.A. Tucker not only gave the readers a heart warming romance that outlasted youthful desires. She added a sense of mystery and intrigue that kept the readers guessing why everything fell apart. When the final revelations appear, it’s heart wrenching. Lastly she ends with her usual optimistic high note that goes beyond romance. She leaves the reader with a sense of fulfillment and hope.
