"Tucker skillfully builds both romantic tension and suspense, and delivers an immensely satisfying conclusion in this stellar page-turner."
– Publishers Weekly

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.

K.A. Tucker writes captivating stories with an edge. She is the bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series and the novels He Will Be My RuinUntil It FadesKeep Her Safe, and The Simple Wild. She currently resides in a quaint town outside Toronto with her husband and two beautiful girls.

I'm never disappointed by this author and this read is no exception.  This second chance romance packs so much more than a great story.  The characters are living, breathing friends.  The story is an elegant weaving of the past and the present.  And the ending packs an emotional punch.  It's classic K.A. Tucker at her finest.

I adore both Piper and Kyle.  They are so different and yet so perfect together.  Each have had struggles but in very different way.  They are real and I just want to meet up with them to have a drink and talk about old times.  My heart hurts for them and I cheer for them.  I just love them.

The chapters in this story switch back and forth between the past and the present.  Sixteen year old Piper at the summer camp where she was a counselor in one chapter and the next the very successful Ms. Calloway running a billion dollar business.  The silly Kyle betting Piper he could guess her lie in two truths and a lie in one chapter and the stoic Kyle at the security desk in the next.  I was amazed how things from the past just fit perfectly with what was happening in the present.  They were masterfully woven together to tell the story of two people who fell in love with each other at first sight.  And while they didn't see each other again after that long ago summer, they never forgot.  And they couldn't really be kept apart forever.  Such an amazing story.

As for the end, all I can say is that this author is really good at making me ugly cry.  She stitches me back together but I always seem to fall apart when reading her books.  She writes more than a romance book, it's an emotional slice of life with a sexy guy and lots of real.  And, of course, a happy at the end.

Don't wait.  This one is so good.  Pick it up and read it now.
