Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec

Wish You Were Mine

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 st...

    3.5 stars Tara Sivec is a versatile author. She can write books that make you laugh so hard you want to pee yourself, she does an amazing job with romantic suspense, and she can also write emotional reads. I love authors that can write in more than one genre and do it well, and she is definitely one of those. Wish You Were Mine falls more on the emotional side. It’s a beautiful friends to lovers/second chance romance. Cameron and Everett (along...

    3 STARS I hate that I’ve missed Everett so much, that a part of me wants to forgive him for everything. I hate that seeing him again gave me butterflies and made me remember all of the feelings I used to have for him. I hate that he’ll never understand how much his disappearance from my life broke my heart, because I can never tell him. I can never tell him that he always had my heart, and he took it with him when he left, because it will ju...

    Oh man, this one was disappointing, and it totally sucks because this is Tara Sivec and I’m a big fan. I love both her funny and her angsty books (Fisher's Light is an all-time favorite!) but this one definitely fell short. It had a great premise, and the beginning and ending were fantastic, but the execution, especially in the middle, I don’t know what happened there.So, here’s the deal, Cameron, Everett and Aiden have been best friend’s...

    Everett, Cameron and Aiden have been best friends since they were young. They do everything together but most importantly every year they each write a wish on their birthday and put it in their secret hiding place in the tree house. In their own way they are creating time capsules that they will one day be opened and they would remininsce about the hopes they had and if any of it came to fruition.Cameron knew very early on that she was in love wi...

    Emotional friends-to-more romance that has plenty of touching moments, lots of introspection, and a little suspenseful intrigue. Enjoyable and certainly teary at times!

    4 stars!An emotional, angsty and heartfelt friends-to-lovers story as childhood best friends finally get their chance at first love. Cameron, Everett and Aiden met as children and became instant best friends when they met at the summer camp run by Cameron’s parents. (In a gorgeous twist, Cameron is the daughter of Shelby and Eli from The Story of Us. You don’t need to have read that book first, but it is a great little tie in for fans of that...

She can write books with the type of humor that will make you giggle snort and pee as well as books with so much heart that your chest swells.

    “I refuse to let thoughts of Everett Sutherland mess with my head and my heart when I have something much more important to worry about. He’s a part of my past that I need to let go of, no matter how much it hurts. No matter how much my heart breaks that I didn’t just lose one of my best friends, I lost them both. And I’ll never get either one of them back. ““I learned my lesson a long time ago that loving Everett did nothing but caus...

    The pretty cover of Wish You Were Mine immediately reeled me in. Unfortunately, this just wasn't the book for me. I found the story to be incredibly cheesy, but what was worse was the amount of slut-shaming in the story that completely ruined the book for me.Wish You Were Mine opened up with an emotional letter written by Aiden to his friend, Everett, after his passing. It was devastating, and broke my heart, but it also built up my hopes that th...

    Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec ~ 4.5 StarsOh man! Tara makes me cry buckets again. Wish You Were Mine is another emotional, angsty and heartfelt friends-to-lovers romance. The story is about three childhood best friends Cameron, Aiden and Everett growing up and sharing every moment together. They were inseparable until Everett left town to pursue his dreams, not realizing he left a shattered heart behind. Five years has past and their lives hav...

    3 “Back” StarsThis is a sort of second chance romance. Two best friends estranged for years all the while keeping secrets that could have changed the course of their lives. Both a little broken and afraid of opening up, miscommunication and sexual tension is the name of the game. This was a bit of a frustrating read at times but it was still enjoyable. ARC provided to A is for Alpha B is for Books for honest review.

    3.5 Stars Wish You Were Mine is a 'sweetsy' second-chance type romance. The story of the 'Three Musketeers'- Aiden, Everett, and Cameron- turned into two. The book flip flops from the past years (childhood, teens) to present and what transpired to break up the three close friends. Always vowing to be there for each other, life happened, actions misconstrued, years pass without communication. Until they're reunited. Can they bury the past and clea...

    Three best friends until a misunderstanding had one making the decision to follow his dreams.I loved that is it was a second chance love story with your first love but I really wanted to smack some sense into Everett!! He felt something for Cameron the first time he saw her and yes even though Aiden had a crush on her Everett never acted on it. Fast forward a couple of years and seeing how everyone tells Everett that Cameron and Aiden are perfect...

    Try as I might, I find it difficult to go into each book by a favorite author without expectations. With Tara Sivec, whose book Fisher’s Light is one of my all time favorites (and her Playing With Fire series is a favorite series), the bar is high. Really high. But it happens, so when I don’t connect well with a favorite author’s book, the disappointment is also high. Really high…Before I begin what will probably look like me ripping this...

    4.5 stars When I saw a new release from Tara Sivec, I jumped all over it. I was all set for a hilarious romp complete with sex toys, inappropriate t-shirts and ridiculous situations. I got none of these, but I’m far from disappointed. Instead of the utter absurdity of her Chocoholic series, I saw the more tender and serious side to Tara Sivec’s writing. I saw characters that broke my heart, frustrated the crap out of me, and ultimately made m...

    Believe it or not, I have never read a Tara Sivec novel until now. I have seen so many good things about her books, so when I had the chance to review her newest release, I knew it was my time to finally pick one up! Everett has been gone for five years. And for five years, he hasn't spoken one word to Cameron James, the girl who stole his heart when they first met as kids, but also the girl he knows he can never be good enough for. Cameron is an...

    "You can't change the past...you can only move forward and make different choices." For many readers, this author's name is associated with her very popular romantic comedy series. I wasn't expecting to have my mind blown by this very emotional, beautiful story. It took me to a place that I hadn't gone before and broke my heart, opening my eyes to a situation that I hadn't experienced or been aware of previously. It gave me all the 'feels' and ...

    Friends to lovers diyince bodoslama atladım ama bir türlü birbirine açılamadıkları için yaklaşık 15 YILI kaybeden iki kişinin hikayesi beni inanılmaz darladı. Daha rahat okunan, draması az bir şey beklemiştim.

    I think Cam and Everett are now on my top list of favorite book couples! Holy moly, these two. The love is strong. The angst is thick. The attraction is heavy. I fell right into this book from the first page. I definitely did not expect all of the angst and sexual frustration. And let me tell you, it had me in knots. I found myself right in the book with these characters. I wanted for them what they were afraid to achieve.If you are a Tara Sivec ...

    A beautiful, emotional friends to lovers romance that will make you cry... in a good way! I love Tara's writing style. She'll tug at your heart strings, draw you in, make you laugh, then stab you in the chest... LOL! just kidding. no, seriously. WYWM is so good. It's about three best friends who grew up together... one guy was a player, one guy was a broody loner, and the one girl had an enormous crush on broody loner (Of course she does! He's am...

    I thought the Story of Us by Tara Sivec slayed me and pulled me in from the beginning and kept me a beautiful emotional mess but the story of Everett and Cameron took the crown there. From the prologue letter from Aiden that will have you in tears. Like balling beautiful messy fat tears to the first thoughts of Everett and how he is struggling you are captured heart and soul by the characters and their story and the writing of Tara SivecEverett a...

    5 Wish Came True Stars! Wish you were Mine is one of the best books I've read in 2017. I found myself reading this book extremely slow because I just didn't want this story to end. Wish you were mine had me laughing, wanting to slap Cameron and Everett, and crying right along with them. Cameron and Everett were best friends growing up until Everett went way to work with Doctors Without Borders. During the 5 long years Everett was gone he had not ...
