Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Story of Us and Fisher’s Light comes a new, standalone novel—a heart-wrenching story about first loves and second chances that will make you fall in love all over again….

Five years. I would’ve stayed away longer if I hadn’t received the letter. Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought about her, haven’t missed her smile, haven’t wished that things were different.

The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn’t be a part of their lives. Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn’t stay and watch them together. Cameron deserved better than me. She deserved him.

But now that I am back, things are different. I’m not going to stand by and watch the woman I’ve always loved slip away again. I’m done living my life with regrets and I’m ready to tell her the truth. And I’ll do whatever it takes to show her that I always wished she was mine.

4.5 Stars

Wish You Were Mine is a read that will completely consume you. I was hooked from page one. Ms. Sivec is a fantastic storyteller. She will bring you into these character's lives and make you feel all the emotions.

So don't freak out--this book is not a love triangle! It's the first thing I thought when I read the synopsis, and trust me, I'm not a big fan. It's about childhood best friends who love each other as friends, but afraid for more. And miscommunication is a big part of the distance.

Without spoiling this book right from the start, I can say that Cameron and Everett were a perfect match. They were friends forever and then something tears them apart. Years later, Everett is back and determined to mend his relationship with Cameron. But a lot of hurt and broken promises happened while they were apart--so forgiving and forgetting isn't easy. 

This book is heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once. It's a great read about childhood friendships, first loves and second chances.
