Goodreads description--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.
Ugh I did it again guys! I waited a week and a half after finishing this book to even sit down to type this review. I hate doing this to myself because it makes reviewing the book so much more difficult. Thankfully, I've only read one other book in between Say You Still Love Me and writing this review so I don't have too much muddling my brain.
KA Tucker said in the acknowledgments that she only wishes that someone reading her books might be entertained. I was certainly entertained reading Say You Still Love Me. I'm not surprised because I always seem to devour her books, and Say You Still Love Me was no different.
I typically don't love "then" and "now" books where we jump around in chronological order, but KA Tucker seems to do this frequently. Yet she does it in a way that I don't hate like normal. In this case, I was invested in both the "then" and the "now" which helps.
My curiosity needed to find out what happened to cause Kyle to leave and not contact Piper in the past and also what was causing him to keep his distance in the present. This is where KA Tucker really excels in her writing. I had questions. I needed answers. She kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation. Unfortunately, the answers to the questions were actually a bit predictable and slightly anti-climatic.
Despite this, I still found myself enraptured with getting the answers to the questions. This was the best part of Say You Still Love Me. I feel like I should have more to say about the story, but the distance between reading and reviewing strikes again. Oh, I will say that the PC statements abound and I just really wish they'd been left out altogether. KA Tucker succeeded in entertaining me for sure. Yet I don't think I'll look back on Say You Still Love Me as a particular favorite. Say You Still Love Me gets 3.5 Stars. Have you read Say You Still Love Me? What did you think? Let me know!
