WISH YOU WERE MINE by Tara Sivec (November 14, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99)
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.

Rating : 3.5 out of 5 Stars
“Wish You Were Mine” is a beautiful story of friendship and love, with a prologue that had me in tears! For years, Aidan, Everett and Cameron were the Three Musketeers, living by the motto “all for one, one for all”. But things haven’t been the same since Everett accomplished what he had set out to do and became a doctor in poverty stricken countries with Doctors Without Borders. He hasn’t been home for more than four years and has lost touch with Cameron. But he has finally come home after Aidan’s death.
Cameron is angry and heartbroken, Everett left and never looked back. Despite his feelings of guilt, Everett knows the time has come to restore their friendship. His dreams took him away from Cameron, but she is very dear to him.
Everett first struck me as incredibly complicated and insecure, but he was also sweet, hot and honorable. Cameron was independent and stood up for herself. Despite Aiden’s efforts, she hasn’t figured out how to be happy since Everett left. She hates that she missed Everett so much and she is convinced he will eventually push her away again.
Emotional scars and life choices work against them but some things are just worth fighting for. Their bond hasn’t died in all those years, but now they’re adults and mature enough to be in a relationship built on mutual trust and respect.
Flawed, complex characters make this book an interesting and poignant read. It dragged in a few places but, for the most part, progressed to a satisfying conclusion. Even though it was not my favorite book by Tara Sivec, it was definitely worth the read.
Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
