Say You Still Love Me by K.A. Tucker

say you still love me

Say You Still Love Me is a dual-timeline second-chance love story between a high-powered real estate developer named Piper and Kyle, a man from the wrong side of the tracks. They first met and fell in love at 16 at summer camp, and 13 years later, they’re working in the same building…and Kyle doesn’t remember Piper’s name. And naturally Piper is very offended. DID THAT SUMMER OVER A DECADE AGO MEAN NOTHING TO HIM? DOES IT NOT STILL HAUNT HIS DREAMS?!

Sigh. Sarcasm aside, I hesitate to write this review because I already know I am in the minority, and because I actually loved The Simple Wild (also by K.A. Tucker) and don’t want to be mean — but I am just feeling so MEH about this book.

There wasn’t really anything remarkable about it. It read like a 16 year old’s dream come true, but not in a good way. Piper’s job and life situation were unbelievable and Kyle was just such a stereotypical “bad boy.”

Because Romance isn’t my genre of choice, I think I have less patience for a book that is, in my opinion, just a bunch of fluff. I would have appreciated a much more developed story line and believable character development.

That being said, I would recommend The Simple Wild if you’re looking for a good K.A. Tucker. If you’re a fan of Romance or are nostalgic for your teen years, you’d probably like this one just fine, though.
Thank you to NetGalley and Atria Books for the ARC.
