Wish You Were Mine: A heart-wrenching story about first loves and second chances by Tara Sivec

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Story of Us and Fisher's Light comes a new, standalone novel---a heartwrenching 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.

Move over The Notebook! I think this book would be a perfect chick flick movie! Tara’s writing is so heartfelt and emotional in this book. A true switch from some of her other book series. Some of the best elements in this book are suspense (keeps you guessing until the end), love, romance, and a very pivotal turn of events. I did not tear up at all through this book as some people have mentioned. I love the relationship that Everett,Cameron, & Aiden build when they were kids. And I love how this relationship continues throughout their lives. It’s very endearing. Out of this life long friendship develops a very complicated romance. “That old saying about two ships passing in the night…nothing could describe Everett and me better. One of us is always passing the other by.” -Cameron I liked that the author doesn’t reveal all the characters secrets at once. There were many times when I thought I had the book figured out, only to be surprised when it didn’t go as I expected. Which is awesome, because if the book is too predictable I find myself becoming bored. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did.

Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec Book starts out with a letter from Aiden to Everett... he needs Everett to go to Cameron and help her out. This is a story of a camp that was once a cotton plantation in the Civil War, 40 acres of land near Charleston, SC. The camp is now a safe haven for kids who are going through problems due to their parents who are/have served in the military and some ddn't return home or came back damaged. The three kids: Cameron, Aiden and Everett all attended the camp during the summer months as her relatives ran the camp back then. It's now her project but after Aiden has left it's on her shoulders and this year the person in charge of doling out money has new requirements. Everett has his own past that led him overseas to help others in need to return after the letter and drank himself til his brother stepped in and got him in rehab. She needs help and hopes he will come to her aide. It's all for a good cause... Story is told with alternating chapters between them and at times it goes back in time and other times it's the present. Took me a while to get the hang of that although I've read many books in this same format. What I like about this book is the location, the planned activities for the kids, help the counselors can give the children and parents alike and how those involved all come together to make it happen, hopefully for more years down the road. The stories are hard to hear about, struggles they endure, heartaches and death. Some truths you just don't even hear about til it comes out at the end. Adult sexual scenes. Wow surprise ending, didn't see it coming. Received this review copy from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via Net Galley and this is my honest review.
