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, 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.

I have always loved T.A. Tucker’s books, because she writes deeply, like I can connect with every emotion she pours into her words. This book is no different, and it’s close to my heart. If you ever experienced you first real love or the one that got away, then you’ll be in for a treat!
As opposed to all the billionaire hot guys out there, now we have Piper Calloway, an heir to an empire and a ruthless father who stood between her and her first love.
Kyle Miller is your old school, bad boy at camp, where he has every girl’s attention, but he only seeks Piper. It doesn’t help that half his family is in prison, and the world expects him to follow suit.
Say You Still Love Me has chapters between then and now, which I’m not so fond of, but I guess, this is the way the author builds the suspense. Plus, I truly feel that Kyle’s POV would be great to read!
Between Camp Wawa and 13 years later, when they meet again, their love is still strong, and their chemistry is still there. I love how her mother brings 13-year-old Piper and tells her this is how friends for life meet. She just forgot to mention that this is how you also meet the love of your life.
All in all, I loved the book, but I would have liked to have a full “then” and full “now” + Kyle’s POV.
PS: the ending is HEA, but without an epilogue into the future.
