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.

***** 5 STAR REVIEW *****
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 fan, please know this isn't one of her funny books. Although, I giggled a few times. This story is heavy. This story is raw and real. Tara was able to tap into not just these characters' minds as adults, but she hit the nail on the head when delving into their teenage selves. She couldn't have written their love, jealousy and angst any better.
Overall, this is book is emotional and steamy. It is definitely one of my top reads of the year. Kudos Tara!
