From the USA Today bestselling author of The Story of Us and Fisher’s Light comes a new, stand-alone 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.
This is the 3rd book in a row that I’ve read by Tara Sivec. Tara is such a talented author! Most authors tend to stay with one genre, but Tara can write multiple genres & she does it flawlessly. In my opinion, they are all amazing!
The cover of the book is beautiful.😍 The cover alone makes me want to read it. You can tell it’s going to be a good tear jerker & sometimes a woman just needs a love story & a good cry! 😉
Wish You Were Mine can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend you read The Story of Us first if you want to get the full experience.
You will say wtf throughout the book…just giving you a warning. I wanted to reach into the book & smack Everett so many times. He’s definitely a clueless man lol! He drove me crazy, but he broke my heart at the same time.
PTSD is a big part of The Story of Us & Wish You Were Mine. I never thought about doctors getting PTSD until I read Wish You Were Mine. Everett had to make decisions that no human should ever have to make. His struggle will break you!
As much as I loved Everett’s character, I think I loved Shelby’s a little more. I admire Shelby’s strength & her attitude. She will let you know if you have done something wrong. She has so much strength & spirit. She is fierce!
I can’t even talk about Aiden. If I do, I’ll be sad all night. Tara makes you feel so connected to her characters that you feel like you are right there with them. Your heart breaks right along with theirs.
The only reason I took off points off the rating is that there are some noticeable misspellings in the book. Other than that, it was amazing! I hate putting anything negative, but if I were an author, I would probably want to know there’s mistakes so it can possibly be fixed.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the mood for a sappy love story!
