Goodreads: 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 Industries, and coincidentally the first love of her life.
The guy she hasn’t seen or heard from since they were summer camp counsellors 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 not only alive but stronger than ever, 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.
Ope’s Opinion: K.A. Tucker knows how to develop wonderful women characters! I love the story too, although I could live without the steamy parts of this book. I knew when I started reading, since it is a new adult book, that there would be some steamy scenes – I just wish there was less steamy and more left to my imagination.
The chapters flip from the young Piper and Kyle to the adult Piper and Kyle. It was a great way to feel that first love, then see the grown up love. When the misunderstandings and secrets come out they explained what happened between camp ( past ) and present day. Present day was my favorite part of the story, but it would not be complete without the background of their story which began at camp.
The twists keep coming right up to the end. It kept me reading. I did enjoy the ending.
