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.
“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.”
Piper is a successful businesswoman – taking the corporate world by storm but when a former flame shows up unexpectedly, her personal life is shaken. It has been thirteen years since she has seen Kyle, the boy who stole her heart and then disappeared. Thirteen years since an accident that she can’t get out of her mind.
Kyle was the boy from the other side of the tracks – the complete opposite of what Piper had known and what her family would approve of. From the moment they saw eachother, Piper and Kyle were in deep.
Their story is told through (somewhat steamy) flashbacks that are weaved into the current day. You feel the teenage angst and nostalgia throughout this whole story – but in the best way. It brings you back to those youthful feelings where another person can be your whole world.
This is a new adult/adult contemporary novel that is appropriate for ages 18 plus.
