Five years. I would have 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.
I forget at times that Tara Sivec can write some of the most emotional driven books that I have read. I want to keep her in that hilarious column in my mind and I need to break that habit. Wish You Were Mine was emotional, it was angsty, and had my heart cracking. Wish You Were Mine is a second chance romance, a best friends to lovers, romance.
I think the way that Ms. Sivec went about the story line between Cameron and Everett and also Aiden was a beautiful and heartbreaking thing. I loved getting the glimpses of their past I think that is what made it such an emotional book. And don’t let me get started on that prologue, that right there had my emotions starting and had me knowing instantly that I needed to keep the tissues and wine close at hand because I was going to need it and I did. Mistakes, misunderstandings, stubbornness and time can all cause pain but it is how you work to move past that is what matters. Cameron and Everett’s story will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride, and it is one that I would willingly ride again because I am sure in between my crying fits I missed something.
My words are not doing this book the justice it deserves so I am going to end this review with this final thought. Make wishes upon the stars, sometimes those wishes will come true.
