Synopsis: 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.

Say You Still Love Me is KA Tucker’s newest new adult novel that tells a love story spanning over a decade! Told in parallel with past and present alternating chapters, Piper and Kyle’s story evolves to reveal their first love as teenagers and developing to show how they reconnect in the future.
KA Tucker is a master of the new adult genre and this book is no different. The connection between Kyle and Piper can be felt from the first page and the characters feel so real. They are highly relatable which I feel helps to invest the reader in their story and their love story. Piper is the spoiled rich kid who falls for the boy from the wrong side of the tracks – these stories always lead to drama. And, this is a story that is somewhat over told, therefore I did find some parts of the novel were slightly predictable. BUT this did not take way from my overall enjoy-ability of the books.
While this is not my favourite KA Tucker novel, it was still highly enjoyable and definitely a recommended read for fans for the new adult genre.
