    If I've said it once then I've said it one thousand times: K.A. Tucker knows how to write a romance that is equal parts steamy chemistry and female empowerment. It's not fair to try and compare different romance novels to an end of stating which types of stories are more worthy than others, and you'll never find me shaming readers for whatever form of storytelling they choose to enjoy, but within the sliver of sub-genre that this author chooses to write, she is in the top of her class.

    If I've said it once then I've said it one thousand times: K.A. Tucker knows how to write a romance that is equal parts steamy chemistry and female empowerment. It's not fair to try and compare different romance novels to an end of stating which types of stories are more worthy than others, and you'll never find me shaming readers for whatever form of storytelling they choose to enjoy, but within the sliver of sub-genre that this author chooses to write, she is in the top of her class. Upon closing out the final pages of one of her novels, I always feel like I've bettered myself by experiencing life from a POV that is different than my own. The amount of empathy Kathleen can evoke in this reader is quite extraordinary, and I'd like to invite you to check out her latest novel,

    , if you enjoy NA romance and are searching for one that's well done.

    It's a tale as old as time; girl who comes from a well off family falls for a boy who her parents do not approve of. Summer love as camp counselors ends in heartache for girl, yet 13 years later life presents a second chance for these lovebirds. I'm sure you read this, promptly rolled your eyes, and thought "I've read this story a hundred times!", and you'd be right. SYSLM is based on an age old cliche, and whether or not it was due to the comfort and familiarity of the trope, or the author's talent at adding her unique flair, it was the perfect formula for a 5 star romance. Timing is everything, and I'm a sucker for second chance love stories, but the depth of the characters' connection is felt throughout, and I adored how Tucker convinced me to adore Piper as an individual first, and then built on my respect of her character before adding in the romance element.

    If you enjoy the nostalgia of summer camp, tender young love, and a renewed hope that there is some good left in the world, do yourself a favor and add

    to your late summer TBR. I don't know how I'll wait patiently for the author's next novel, but I do know one thing: it will be worth every painful moment of delayed gratification. 💖

    for those needing a new go-to NA romance author who writes stories with great authenticity and female empowerment, then look no further! k a tucker is your girl!

    this is not my first 5 star rating for one of her books, but its definitely my favourite one. by far. if you know me, you know im an absolute sucker for both the ‘second chance at love’ and ‘childhood sweethearts’ tropes. so imagine how much my heart melted when i found out this story combined both them!

    the romance is the reason i pick

    the romance is the reason i picked this up and definitely why i finished it, but i also quite enjoyed the side story of piper in the workplace. as someone who has once worked in an environment predominately ran by men, i could totally empathise with piper and was really inspired by how strongly she handled herself against the stuffy old men.

    something i might have changed to make this tad bit better would be the narrative style. with second chance at love plots, i think telling the story in chronological order is more effective as it allows the reader to understand why the characters fell for each other in the first place. i didnt really mind the alternating flashback chapters, but if tucker really wanted to keep them, then maybe have them from kyles POV instead? dunno. i just think this could have been arranged in a much more impactful way.

    anyway, i really loved this and i will recommend it to literally anyone who will listen. lol.

    IT'S LIVE!!!!

    She did it again. I honestly didn’t think it would happen again – but I cried. I got to the point when I couldn’t keep on reading, and had to put the book down. Because I couldn’t see through my tears – lol.

    What I love about this author’s writing is that she doesn’t overdo the emotional. She doesn’t rip out my heart and stomp all over it. There is nothing manipulated about the way she goes about. It just sneaks up on me, when I least expect it and – pow!!!

    What I love about this author’s writing is that she doesn’t overdo the emotional. She doesn’t rip out my heart and stomp all over it. There is nothing manipulated about the way she goes about. It just sneaks up on me, when I least expect it and – pow!!!

    So, this book is for everyone who loves summer camp. Who loves the idea of a summer of falling in love. A first love that endures hardships and years of separation. Say You Still Love Me is the perfect romance novel about second chances.

    Besides a fantastic story arc, I really enjoyed the cast. The characters are down to earth, kind, and relatable. The friendships, and emotional connections are palpable and real. And I love how very different most of the personalities are. None was boring, two dimensional or just plain superficial.

    The only thing that always takes some of the joy out of these kind of novels are the flashbacks. A reason why I’m not the biggest fan of the popular second chance trope. If the author does the flashbacks too well, I always wish that it would have been a YA novel instead. I’m a huge sucker for first love. It’s passionate, and emotionally charged. The newness of first love is uniquely exciting and the feelings just jump off the pages. So, going back between past and present is jarring and messes with my mind.

    But in the end, I got used to the alternating chapters, and in retrospect, the way the author had this novel set up only shows how well she knows her craft.

    The novel was everything I wanted it to be.

    The story spoke to me, lured me in, and even made me cry. Perfect ingredients for a romance novel that touches hearts and allows the reader to reminisce about their own summer camp days. Or for someone like me who never went to a summer camp, to imagine how it could have been and also to contemplate all the things I missed out on.

    Say You Still Love Me wasn’t as poignant as Be the Girl or as engrossing as The Simple Wild but it was in its entirety a wonderful addition to my KA TUCKER collection. Especially her latest books are MUST READ novels for me. Her words, writing and characters speak to me, and are by far some of the best romance novels available.

    Her books have become a new obsession of mine, and Say You Still Love Me did not disappoint.

    {ARC Generously Provided by Publisher}

    is a sweet and steamy second chance romance that is both young adult and adult contemporary. It started off a bit too slow for me but luckily towards the second half of the story the plot started to rev up and I couldn’t wait to find out how it all would end. There were surprises I didn’t see coming.

    Piper Calloway and Kyle Miller met and fell instantly in love during their shared summer as counselors at camp Wawa. It's hard to believe that you can find your true soulmate at sixteen, but as the story unfolds it becomes clear that what they shared was more than a summer fling.

    The story goes back and forth between present and past. We see how adult Piper and Kyle are living their lives and it’s obvious that thirteen years of separation has done absolutely nothing to erase the feelings they had for each other. I did feel that there may have been a little too much emphasis played on the back story which created the slowness for me. Maybe I am getting a bit tired of the switch from past to present in most of the books I have been reading lately.

    Luckily plot twists take place towards the end, which explains Kyle’s actions in the past and why he suddenly reappears in Piper’s life. Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable read. It’s definitely worth adding to your summer reads list!

    This story was adorable. It kept me up way past my bedtime because I just had to read through to the happy ending - I was in that kind of mood.

    Piper Calloway is 29, smart, beautiful, rich and being groomed to take over her father's multibillion-dollar real estate development firm. Sounds like she has it all right? Well, looks can be deceiving because she is also single, having recently broken off her engagement to a man she has to continue to work with every day

    This story was adorable. It kept me up way past my bedtime because I just had to read through to the happy ending - I was in that kind of mood.

    Piper Calloway is 29, smart, beautiful, rich and being groomed to take over her father's multibillion-dollar real estate development firm. Sounds like she has it all right? Well, looks can be deceiving because she is also single, having recently broken off her engagement to a man she has to continue to work with every day and battling a male-dominated business daily in order to earn the respect she deserves and works hard for.

    Enter Kyle, the new security guard at her building and the boy who broke her heart thirteen years ago. She has never forgotten Kyle. Not the magical summer they spent together or the disappearing act he pulled after an accident involving another camper left them both fired and unable to ever return to camp. Can fate be bringing him back into Piper's life?

    We see how Piper and Kyle fell in love and slowly connect the dots to what led them apart in the present.

    was a quick, easy read that I enjoyed. Thank you K.A. Tucker, Atria Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an arc of this second chance romance.

    How many of us would jump at a second chance with a lost love, or wish we had that opportunity at some point in our lives? What would we be willing to risk to see that second chance through?

    Piper Calloway is being groomed to take over her father's multibillion-dollar real estate development firm, if he's ever willing to retire. She definitely knows her stuff and can go toe-to-toe with any man in the business, but many believe she's only risen through the ranks of the company because

    How many of us would jump at a second chance with a lost love, or wish we had that opportunity at some point in our lives? What would we be willing to risk to see that second chance through?

    Piper Calloway is being groomed to take over her father's multibillion-dollar real estate development firm, if he's ever willing to retire. She definitely knows her stuff and can go toe-to-toe with any man in the business, but many believe she's only risen through the ranks of the company because she's the boss's daughter. Since she's beautiful and 29, and a woman, many aren't willing to take her seriously—at their own peril.

    As if battling for respect from one of her father's right-hand men isn't hard enough to deal with on a daily basis, she also needs to work closely with David, her fiancé, who is a fellow VP at the firm. He's handsome and intelligent—and he knows it—but Piper's father still hasn't gotten over their ending their engagement, since David is both surrogate son and sidekick. David is just biding his time until Piper realizes the error of her ways.

    One day, in the midst of all her daily chaos, she sees a face she hasn't seen since the summer she was 16 years old. Kyle Miller, the handsome, cocky boy who stole her heart when they were summer camp counselors 13 years ago—and then broke her heart when the summer ended and they went their separate ways—has grown into an immensely handsome man. She's never been able to find him on social media, never heard from him again—what is he doing in her building?

    "Because, even after all these years, with college and boyfriends, and my career and my engagement to David, Kyle Miller has always been a sliver in my heart, a shadow in my thoughts. A lingering 'what if' that I have never been able to truly shake."

    It turns out Kyle is now a security guard in her building, and at first, he didn't seem to even know her name. But when he admits that was an act, he also admits he'd like to keep their relationship formal. Too many years have passed, she's nearly the CEO of the company that owns the building in which he works, and he's just a security guard. Once again, they're on either side of the financial divide, and Kyle would like to keep it that way.

    Piper can't seem to shake the feelings that Kyle has reignited. Was this just a summer relationship between two high school kids, not destined to go anywhere, or did it have the potential to be so much more? Why did Kyle cut her off completely, change his name, and disappear, leaving her wondering whether the feelings he told her he had were genuine or just a way to get what he wanted that summer? Can a relationship succeed between two people who are so different that forces will try to keep them apart?

    K.A. Tucker's new book,

    , explores the idea of a second chance years later, when so much has changed, but the people are still the same at their core. Can a teenage relationship from summer camp blossom into something serious, all these years later? Can a relationship in which the participants are so far apart financially ever work? Are there secrets which can keep them apart even now?

    The narration shifts between when Piper and Kyle first meet at camp 13 years ago and present day. It also shifts between Piper's attempts to understand Kyle's disappearance and his distance since then and her struggles to succeed outside her father's shadow. It's an exploration of friendship, first love, family, and the secrets that threaten to destroy it all, or which incite us to want to throw it all away.

    I read Tucker's last book,

    , earlier this year and fell completely in love with it. I was really excited to get the opportunity to read

    before it was published. I really enjoy the way Tucker writes, and her combination of emotion, humor, and sex is really appealing.

    I definitely enjoyed this book, and loved the concept (especially having gone to summer camp for 10 seasons and seen many couples from that time married now), but I honestly could have done without the narration from camp. I felt that part of the story dragged and took far too long to tell. I understood Tucker was setting the scene but it seemed to just be the same things over and over again.

    More and more, I'm becoming a fan of rom-coms, and Tucker is definitely an author I'll turn to again and again.

    was an enjoyable, emotional read that brought a tear to my eye.

    Ugh, too darn cute.

    I got a good dose of character development, enjoyable plot, an adorable second chance romance story with a summer camp as the backdrop.

    I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like this book since I wasn’t the biggest fan of

    , but this story had me head over heels.

    Now I need more of K.A. Tucker in my life.

    List started to get longer: first Jewel E. An did it with “Naked Love” and “Jersey Six”( some GR friends unfriended me after I gave two stars to that book, but I still stick with my review ), then Renee Carlino’s `Last Post” made me disappointed. Even Karina Halle released some good but not so good books lately.

    Now one of my favorite and brilliant writers (Ten Tiny Breaths, Burying Water, Simple Wild are quiet great and remarkable reads), K. A. Tucker made me feel like my favorite brand of Chardonnay is no longer available at the markets!(Somebody burned the family’s vineyard, OH NOOOO!)

    When I check the ARC COPY lists from NetGalley and saw this amazing writer’s book, I requested without thinking a second and as soon as the copy arrived, I danced, clapped, screamed, did all immature, awkward things( my neighbors still push me to see my shrink more randomly, I couldn’t say them I didn’t have one)!

    But as soon as I start this one, I felt that something is not right, actually many, many, many things were not right.

    Here is the list of the wrong things:

    -Instead of too many flashback scenes, we may have stayed in the past and read a young adult camp story!

    -I tried to turn the pages but I felt like I stuck in the mud and couldn’t move to anywhere.

    -You may think this is slow burn romance. You are right. It’s so slow, too slow, never ever ending story, but it doesn’t burn, it is just SLOW and it’s hard to be considered as a romance. Where is romance? I was craving romance and when I didn’t get it, I feel like a frustrated person who watched the last episode of GOT over and over again!

    -I didn’t find a moving plot maybe I lost it when I was yawning and taking a quick nap on my couch. At least this book helped me having lovely dreams.

    -I didn’t like the character development. I didn’t like Piper and Kyle. I found them too immature and the lack of chemistry and their awkward behaviors made me detest them too many times.

    So unfortunately, heart-breakingly this book didn’t work for me! I know what I’m looking for! A heart-wrenching, emotional, smartly written romance and I know deep in my heart, K.A. Tucker is one of the most gifted writers so in near future I hope she will give us better stories.

    Special thanks to Atria Books and NetGalley to send me one ARC COPY is written by one of my favorite writers in exchange for my honest review.

  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)

    I adored

    , so

    had some pretty big shoes to fill and wow did it just..... not. This book was SO bland. I can't even believe this was written by the same person who wrote one of my favorite romances of all time. I never ever felt like there were any stakes, and I honestly could not have cared less about ANY of the characters. Also, did 95% of the sexy scenes in this book need to happen while the characters were underage???? This was just messy, y'all. I'm SAD.
