INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed this!! It could be because my hormones are driving me crazy from pregnancy, but this book made me super nostalgic and emotional. Remembering all those summer camp nights living care free, with friends, thinking we knew everything about the world. Those were the good old days. This is my first read by K.A. Tucker and I must say that I really enjoyed her writing style. Her characters were completely relatable... I mean who wasn't an over hormonal teenager wanting to experience EVERYTHING their first nights away from home? Thinking you know everything about the world and that you're invincible? I think that's how we all felt at some point in our lives. Overall I really enjoyed the story. There were definitely some events that I was NOT expecting to happen and there were quite a few surprises which kept me interested. If I had the time to sit and read it properly I would have flown through it. It kept me hooked and turning the pages... and yes, as cliche as it is, I was rooting for EVERYONE in this book. If you want a fast paced romantic read that brings back nostalgic feeling twofold then I suggest you pick this up. ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the feels! What a wonderful way to spend a summer night reading, KA delivers the perfect summer romance. Who doesn't have the one guy in their past that they wonder what ever happened to him! And what we do if he showed up out of nowhere after more then a decade apart? A perfect blend of looking back and moving forward. It made me feel very nostalgic and wish I had gone to summer camp! As always KA gives us a well rounded novel, where no stone is left unturned. We gain access to a wonderful world so vividly described and developed. Not only do we learn about Piper and Kyle's relationship but also her relationship with her parents and what she thought she knew about them! Can't wait for a re read!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gripping story A great novel full of romance, fond memories, heartache, and the rekindling of old love. Piper is a successful business woman. She comes from a hardworking family, works at a high pressured job, and is a strong, independent woman. She is faced with many pressures such as working closely alongside her ex-fiance, working for her father’s company, and the pressures and stressors of everyday life. One day she runs into someone she thinks she recognizes from her past. A man who looks very similar to the young boy she fell in love with at summer camp many years ago….the boy she fell in love with, who left her broken hearted. Is this the same boy she loved all those years ago? I enjoyed Piper’s character. She was powerful, strong, and knew what she wanted in life and wasn’t afraid to fight for it. She was an interesting character and was kind, funny and smart. I enjoyed reading glimpses of the past when Piper was a young girl and attended the summer camp where she met many people including the love of her life, Kyle. I enjoyed reading about their adventures as teens together and their love story unfold. A great novel that you will enjoy from beginning to end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sincere, intoxicating, and heartwrenching! Say You Still Love Me is an alluring, emotional tale that takes you on a journey into the life of the hardworking, intelligent Piper as she juggles a high-pressure career, a sexist coworker, an overbearing family with good intentions, the memories of one summer that changed her life forever, and the sudden reappearance of the boy who first stole her heart and then left her brokenhearted. The writing is fluid and intense. The characters are secretive, scarred, ambitious, and intriguing. And the plot is a wonderful, contemporary mix of life, love, coming-of-age, family dynamics, humour, heartbreak, privilege, conflict, and surprises that starts in the present, takes you back 13-years in the past, and ultimately finishes when the past and the present collide. Overall, Say You Still Love Me is another memorable, heartwarming, compelling tale by Tucker that once again has the perfect amount of mystery and romance to keep you engaged, enthralled, and invested from start to finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Say You Still Love Me is the perfect summer romance to curl up with at the cottage! Say You Still Love Me is a cute second chance romance told from the past and present. Readers follows Piper Calloway as she’s forced to attend a summer camp as a counsellor while her friends are off enjoying Europe. When Piper arrives, she realizes the summer might not be so bad after all once she’s introduced to Kyle Miller. What I loved most about Say You Still Love Me were the chapters set in the past. Those chapters are rife with palpable chemistry between the main characters and fun secondary characters all set within a setting that’s easy to visualize. Tucker takes the star-crossed lovers trope and gives it a fresh spin with the setting and time jump. I cannot express how much I loved the camp setting. It’s fun, fresh, and exciting. It also lends itself perfectly to the star-crossed lovers trope as it levels the playing field between the characters. Tucker’s writing ability when it comes to setting and atmosphere is second to none in the romance genre. She proved her skills in The Simple Wild and, now, with Say You Still Love Me cements her mastery. What ultimately led me to rate Say You Still Love Me four stars instead of five was the chapters that took place in the present. Those chapters don’t have as much presence since they’re trying to juggle Piper’s career with her personal life. As much as I enjoyed watching Piper in her element, it doesn’t hold a candle to Piper and Kyle at camp. Overall, Say You Still Love Me is the perfect summer romance to curl up with at the cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great end of summer read Say you still love me is the perfect end of summer read. The story weaves back and forth between a summer when Piper is 16 and again 13 years later. I thought the story was well mixed between the two time lines. It also has the summer romance feel and suprises throughout. This novel was a a bit different from past novels written by K.A. Tucker but in a good way. Her books are diverse from each other in a way that keeps her writing from becoming boring or repetitive. I loved it as much as her past series and standalones. I didn't see any of the surprises or twists coming. I love when a book can suprise me like this. I also loved the fast pace of the story and I found it hard to put down. It has a great story line and has a relatable nostalgic feel about first loves and ghosts of past loves. This is a great starter book if your new to K.A. Tucker's books or already a fan. I highly recommend end it for light romance lovers. Complimentary copy provided by publisher and netgalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable new KA Tucker book! Say You Still Love Me is a contemporary romance. I am a big KA Tucker fan. So I was thrilled to be able to read her newest book. The narrator is 29 year old Piper Calloway (1st person POV). This book is divided into THEN and NOW. In the present she is the new senior vice president at her dad's multi-billion-dollar real estate development firm, Calloway Group. In the past she is a 16 year old first time counselor at Camp Wawa in upstate New York. In this story the past and the present could not have been more different. In the past she is a girl working at a camp. In the present she is a high powered executive from a wealthy family. This contrast was fascinating and really demonstrated Piper's growth. I am super picky when it comes to then and now storylines. They are not my favorite. Mostly because the past is never as interesting as the present. And every time something interesting happens at the end of a chapter... we are immediately taken out of that moment. In this story I really liked the present. But I would have preferred much less of the past. Those chapters were too long. While I was curious to find out what happened at the camp I definitely found myself much more interested in what was happening in the present. I was hoping that the ratio of past to present would switch to much more in the present. What I did like: Piper met some friends at camp. And the friendships lasted. I loved seeing the evolution of the friendship of the three women: Christa, Ashley and Piper. I also really liked Piper's assistant Mark and I enjoyed the dynamic with her ex fiancee David. I also really enjoyed present day Kyle. I was fascinated by his job choice and I really enjoyed learning more about him as the story progressed. And I liked the romance. This was a couple that I could definitely root for. What I liked less: It felt weird to me to have a romance where in the present the two people have so little interaction until later in the story. I wanted more in the present. I don't feel like there was enough time to develop their romance in the present. Also considering some of the things that happened in the past it bothered me that she was only 16. I would have preferred it if she had been a bit older. The last part of the book was definitely the strongest. And there were a few great reveals that I enjoyed very much. Overall, in a way this book is a bit hard to rate. The end was so strong. I usually go by how I feel when I finish a book. And I enjoyed the last part of the book so much. It definitely left me with a very good feeling about the book. However, I really thought that there was too much of the THEN storyline. And it honestly did not get really good for me until the end. I just feel like there should have been a lot more of the storyline set in the present as that is the story that spoke to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Novel for Summer I didn't have any expectations when I went into reading this novel but if I did, my reading experience and enjoyment for this novel would have surpassed them all. When it comes to the summer, I find that there's always this feeling of nostalgia that surrounds the season. That's half of the reason why I love to read books set in summer because there's something that is just so enchanting and charming about stories set in that season. It's a reminder of youth and all of the adventures that happened then but at the same time, reminds me to reflect and appreciate small (and big) moments in summer now. This novel captured all of those feelings and all of that nostalgia fully but again, at the same time brought the reader forward to how things can change over time. Without a doubt, this may be my favourite read for the summer. If not a sole favourite, definitely a contender. I know I will be recommending this book all around. There's something about a romance and summer that just fits. Add on the trope of a 'first love' and I am set! Some may possibly argue about the logistics or the reality of this story but I definitely was not one to nitpick through the details. It was a story about young love and whether it be realistic or not, I loved it. After reading this, I want to go out and do a binge shop of K.A. Tucker's other novels. This was my first read of hers and I know it will leave a lasting impression. I'm looking forward to reading more from her and am restraining myself so I can make her novels last. ***Thank you to the publisher for supplying me with a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***
