    2 StarsOverall Opinion Hmmmthis is a tough one I slept on it so I can think about how I should rate it, and I m still not sure I think, overall, I was disappointed There were just too many things that bothered me Here are some BIG SPOILERS to break down my issues, so please click at your own risk view spoiler The characters weren t all that relatable I understand that the h was going through some big life changes, but she was a complete doormat to her husband and kind of a B to the H at times I also felt like she was kind of leading on the H, because she always had the mentality that it was temporary It was like all he was good for was his dick I felt bad for him tbh, and I m not sure if the author wanted me to but I think she might ve, because she would write that the H stops the h from turning things sexual on than a couple occasions The H was also odd I felt like he was immature for being 27 years old I think that was his age He would answer to both his Dad and grandmother as if he was a teenager This didn t help me think they were a good match, especially with their age difference He also had some inner dialogue and behavior that felt too feminine to me see below H section I like my men manly, and he just didn t feel that way The h was selfish, and inconsiderate The h had gone through infertility issues with her husband, and believes she is infertile So, she flat out lies to the H and says she is on the pill even though she isn t And gasp she ends up miraculously pregnant Go figure The H gets really upset about it when he suspects that she lied to him the day after being intimate multiple times without a condom and this causes their separation I completely understood his anger, but he also said some really nasty things that I didn t like I honestly found the h to be unforgivable for such a stupid thing And frankly I couldn t root for her after that behavior, especially after her being built up as this uber smart woman The separation and ending They are separated for 2 months During this time, the H s dad is in his ear bad mouthing his decisions and the h, and the H just takes it When reunited, the H s dad says some things to the h and makes her leave The H goes after her, and she tells him she s pregnant He is oddly ecstatic about it even though he didn t like the idea of it before , they say their I love yours for the first and only time, and it s over That s it We don t get any details regarding the pregnancy, how the H s dad reacts, the next step in their relationship, the results of the h s nasty divorce and job change, or anything hide spoiler

    Wow This came with heaps of drama Shamelessly, I loved it gotta love it when a book makes you both laugh and cry within the same page Dr Harlow James is a successful pediatric transplant surgeon but her personal life hit the skids 6 months ago She did the only thing she thought she could she ran, well drove, far away from New York Approaching 40 in the midst of a messy divorce, dealing with the traumatic still birth of son, and the pending termination of her employment she takes off in car ala Thelma Louise across the country and ends up in Taos, NM off the grid and in a very bad place emotionally.Dax Drexel is a successful artisan of custom woodworking and as God or Fate or whoever would have it builder of the self sustaining green home that Harlow lands in at the end of her cross country journey Sparks fly as they collide in their first official meeting Dax can t seem to get her out of his mind and or stay away Harlow begins to laugh and smile again and struggles with her attraction to a young man The tension and draw between these two is undeniable and sparks and sheets flying is inevitable.Can they survive the drama that Harlow is running from and the reactions of his friends and family Well, now why would I tell you when you can read it for yourself Absolutely adored this journey I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader of this book

    I ve really enjoyed this nice,hot and touching book.Liz Durano delivered a good story but at times it was too fast and it seems to me that something was missing.I m so glad that the author is working on an Epilogue,I can t wait to read about these characters.I really appreciated that Harlow and Dax perfectly show the strengths and weaknesses of their different age,but they feel safe and truly respected in each other company But I know now that I don t have to fit in anywhere to feel whole.I m heading home,even though I don t exactly know where home is any,not after finding it here at the Pearland in Dax s arms The story takes place in New Mexico,I have to admit I knew nothing about this state but when I finished this book I was so curious I added Taos to my Dreaming Places to visit

    I read an early version of Liz Durano s Everything She Ever Wanted on Wattpad and later volunteered to be a beta reader for the updated version Durano s novel takes the reader on a journey to Taos, New Mexico and later, to New York, as it follows the adventures of its main character, Harlow James Harlow is a highly skilled and successful pediatric transplant surgeon living in New York who is in the midst of a shattering divorce from her equally successful surgeon husband, Jeff Jeff has not only cheated on Harlow but is newly engaged to the woman with whom he has cheated Despondent from the rough demise of her relationship, recent miscarriage, and false rumors that have begun to plague her at work and chip away at her character, Harlow is at the end of her rope When she discovers that the hospital where she is employed is being pressured by Jeff to let her go, it is the final straw that drives Harlow, literally, out of the state and into the remote desert Haunted by memories of her stillborn child, her marriage and professional reputation in ruins, Harlow purchases a gun on her way to Taos with the intention of ending her life.After arriving in an off grid area of Taos and paying cash to rent a quirky, hand built, cleverly self sustaining home known as the Pearl, Harlow takes a moment to reflect on her situation and indulge in some chocolate, wine and tears before stepping outside into the darkness with the gun After drunkenly deciding that it s not quite the right moment, Harlow returns to the Pearl and passes out.Dax Drexel, the 27 year old owner and creator of the Pearl, stops by later and is surprised to find the premises occupied earlier than he had previously expected He stumbles across Harlow in her unconscious state and although he finds himself attracted to the strange, beautiful woman in his bed, he s confused and troubled by what appears to be a suicide note nearby Dax keeps what he has seen to himself and returns the following day with a revised rental agreement What ensues is a less than agreeable encounter but the fragile, defensive, and yes, older 40 years to be exact woman turns out to be intriguing and Dax is undeniably drawn to her Undeterred by Harlow s unfriendly attitude, Dax begins reaching out to her and Harlow soon finds herself softening toward him Harlow begins spending her days with Dax as he shares the hidden treasures of Taos with her desert hikes hot springs wine tasting As they get to know each other, Dax s appreciation and understanding of who Harlow truly is beneath her hard exterior allows her to let go and discover the many ways in which she had mistakenly learned to believe deeply ingrained assumptions about herself Like Harlow, there s to Dax than meets the eye Although he is kind and patient, Dax struggles with anger issues Despite his striking looks and the fact the he happens to be an extremely talented carpenter and successful businessman, Dax remains humble A maker of highly sought after, custom built furniture, Dax has a long list of clients who are willing to pay and wait for his Japanese influenced works of art Harlow is touched by the craftsmanship of Dax s pieces and feels a kinship with his dedication and work ethic When Harlow meets Dax s extended family and friends, she realizes that their lively and caring interactions are what have been missing from her life Dax s youthful outlook, playfulness and attentiveness are a welcome respite from the emotional beatings Harlow has endured As Dax gently breaks down her barriers, Harlow finds herself falling in love with him despite her reservations about their age difference and the fact that she is still technically married to Jeff As the two grow closer, Dax s friends and family become concerned for Dax and begin questioning the validity of the relationship as the marked difference between their ages inevitably presents itself as the central issue that leads to unavoidable conflict.Everything She Ever Wanted is a moving, beautifully written story of a woman discovering aspects of herself that had never been given a chance to flourish while confronting the lies that had eroded her confidence over time and kept her from being honest with the one person most deserving of the truth Those familiar with the state of New Mexico will no doubt enjoy how the passionate connection between Harlow and Dax plays out fittingly against the wild, natural beauty of the Taos desert For readers who have never visited Taos or New Mexico for that matter, Durano s accurate and lovingly detailed descriptions of the state s sweeping landscapes, fragrant flora, delicious food and vibrant culture provide an inviting introduction to Land of Enchantment Like the chocolate that Harlow enjoys so much, the emotional journey of Durano s unique story is both rich and satisfying.

    The inability to become a mother, the awareness you ve been lied to and cheated, an imminent messy divorce and the pressure of being a brilliant professional in a world dominated by men are definitely too much to bear Harlow, a successful surgeon fast nearing her forties, is hurt and lost Drowning in grief, she decides to get off the grid for a while, to collect the broken pieces of her life.It will be in the middle of the desert in Taos, she will meet Dax, the owner of the Pearl, the property she has leased for two weeks Problem is, he s hot and sexy And nice A kind hearted man, actually So what s the problem He is 27 and their age gap is under everyone s scrutiny Not that he cares, though I see men walking around with women half their age, and I don t see anyone complaining But turn the tables around, and suddenly, everyone s got their panties in a twist, he says And he s right.But the pressure is really high, even if Harlow acknowledges that by his side she might have found her home away from home Everything She Ever Wanted is another wonderful story by Liz Durano Liz is an exceptionally gifted writer, so the fact that this story is extremely well written and that the characters very are well developed is not surprising The innovative, surprising element is the risk she took in portraying a heroine who s in her forties, facing the fears and insecurities and rediscovering the thrills of falling in love So rare these days Unfortunately.Very highly recommended read.
