The Delight

I’m beyond delighted when K.A. Tucker releases a new book. This time around it’s a second chance romance and we get to see the past and the present almost equally. It’s kinda like a book within a book and I think it worked really well and was absolutely necessary to the story.If you went to summer camp as a teenager or just wanted to after watching, The Parent Trap(Me), I think you would love this. On the other hand, if you love an amazing romance, you will also love this. A Win Win situation.

Review

Piper is sixteen and beyond rich. Her mother was not rich while growing up, but she did go to camp every year and loved it. She decides to send Piper to the same camp she went to, but as camp counselor, one that is nowhere near the beautiful spa vacation in Europe all her friends are going to that summer. So it’s a disgruntled Piper that comes to camp and promptly falls head over heels for Kyle, a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. It’s a summer full of new friends, small children, romance, first sexual experience, and a love that only grew as time went on, only to have it all taken away after a night of really bad decisions. Cut to now, and Piper is a director at her father’s mega billion dollar company. She’s being trained to take over the whole thing in the not so distant future. Her whole life revolves around her job, her two best friends, and the occasional outing with a family member. Her father is super strict with her even though she’s twenty nine and is only just learning to trust her at her job. And then she runs into Kyle, now an entry level employee in the building where she works.

The characters were nothing short of amazing. Kyle might have been a bad boy as a teenager, but he has grown into a good guy, although one that still comes from a bad family and situation. He’s fit and muscular and is the object of many women’s staring eyes. Piper, now well educated at the best university to fit her love of business, is overworked and has no life. She’s kept two of her fellow counselors from that long ago summer as friends, and they all live together in one of her father’s luxury apartment buildings. She’s just broken off an engagement 6 months ago with David, a man that her father really wants her to marry. So she has to navigate working with David, her father, and a man that wants her job and is trying to sabotage her. She’s strong willed, beautiful, intelligent, good at her job, and wants to make her father proud. Kyle, the boy she got into so much trouble with years ago, is about to upset her whole life and perceptions about people that are close to her.

This was a beautiful and sensual romance. Not erotica sensual, but sensual nevertheless. Nothing horribly explicit, but not necessarily closed door either. I loved the whole thing and didn’t want it to be over. K.A. Tucker has been a favorite author of mine for years and she tells a heartfelt story, one with a bit of teen angst and also one with a wonderful adult romance. I am reminded once again why she has been a favorite since pretty much her earliest books. She is just a flat out wonderful storyteller and now I am already wishing for her next release, whenever that might be. Highly recommended to adult contemporary romance readers. A must read!

The following two tabs change content below.
I’m a lifetime book addict and currently own nine Kindles, with only six still working. I do tend to wear them out! They pretty much are my favorite technology-well that and my cell phone. Okay, yes and my laptop. I spent most of my life in Kentucky, but moved to Maryland in my attempt to get closer to the the ocean a few years ago. Being retired helps. I have a B.S. degree in law enforcement with a minor in sociology, but never really worked in my major. Instead, I spent my entire adult life working in the medical field in some capacity. After retiring(early), I found my passion in reviewing books for a couple of blogs and I love it. My author favorites include, Dannika Dark, Amber Lynn Natusch, J.T. Geissinger, Colleen Hoover, Samantha Towle, K.A. Tucker, Karina Halle, Sarina Bowen, J.R. Ward, Mariana Zapata, Dianne Duvall, and I could go on and on. I read many different genre’s, but still like a romantic element in most, if not all of them.

Sometimes I do like my romances to have nothing explicit especially if it fits the tone of the book.

She’s so worth trying. I’ve been reading her since 2012 and she’s a automatic buy for me.

Thank you! They really were good characters.

This sounds like a great read with how you see both the past and the present as it sounds like both shape their romance. And it sounds interesting to see how they both changed and how they are still the same across those two times. I’ll be adding this one to my wishlist 🙂
