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.
Alternating past and present, Say You Still Love Me tells the story of Kyle and Piper. They come from vastly different backgrounds and meet as camp counselors in their teens and again as adults. I felt joy and sadness in the parts at Camp Wawa. It was in these chapters that I felt the author soar and stretch. I was fully engrossed in new love and the exploration of pushing boundaries. I found myself longing to relive my youth and head to summer camp.
In the present I truly enjoyed the reconnection and that initial pull of second chances. While the dynamic of their relationship could have been cliched I found honesty and authenticity in the fact that either Kyle or Piper tried to change the other. Piper’s strength was a huge plus for me. I loved her fierce nature. Kyle was a kinds of sweet and dreamy.
While the present storyline was a little thin and at times didn’t hold my complete attention. In those moments it wasn’t that anything was missing, more that I found myself longing for the sweet spot of discovery found in the past. Say You Still Love Me is a great read for those who love second chances and sweet romance.
