Story Overview:
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.

My Review:
Aww, I loved this book so much. Cameron, Everett, and friends from childhood...the three musketeers... Until Cameron hit puberty and suddenly Everett was seeing his best friend as something very different, someone he couldn't have. She's his best friend. He won't risk that especially since there seems to be something developing between her and Aiden. So Everett runs away and doesn't come back for almost five years. 

But when he comes back it's to devastation because Aiden has died...and Cameron isn't willing to forgive him for abandoning her. She's loved him since she was twelve. Everett just never realized. 

This is a story about true connections...and it was heartbreaking. Because both of these characters loved and lost Aiden, who knew they belonged together, but also because they've wasted so much time by simply not communicating and being afraid of risking what they have. Which has truly caused them to endanger their connection even more.

This is a highly emotional story about second chances and it takes place in the most beautiful camp setting that I loved. I really enjoyed the side story of Cameron having to find a new funding source for their non-profit...a camp that I loved just for the pure reason behind having it...such a good thing. 

The way the entire story played out had some twists and turns that I truly didn't expect, but I enjoyed every minute of reading it. I highly recommend this book. I'm a sucker for a friends to lovers story and this is a really good one!
