Publisher's Summary

She's smart, independent, and heartbroken. He's gorgeous, a bit rough around the edges, and too young....

But when a scheduling mistake lands them in the same place at the same time, can their fling turn into the real thing?

When her husband leaves her for a younger woman, transplant surgeon Harlow James finds herself alone, without family, and barely a career. So she trades the bright lights of Manhattan for the open road and ends up at the Pearl, a sustainable home outside of Taos, New Mexico where she hopes to find out where she went wrong.

Instead, she finds the perfect man.

Too bad he's too young for her....

Set amidst the enchanting landscape of Taos, New Mexico, Everything She Ever Wanted explores one woman's search for the things that really matter, like love and family, and where losing her way is the best prescription to finding herself - and falling in love - again.

Beautiful story

Loved listening to this! A beautiful story of love, loss, and acceptance. I enjoyed following Harlow and Dax’s relationship through its ups and downs, the dual view points were fantastic. Both narrators were amazing and made the listening experience very enjoyable, both have very pleasant voices to listen to. Highly recommend giving this book a listen! I received a review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Great Performance!

Harlow is an accomplished transplant surgeon however she and her husband are having trouble conceiving a child. When their last attempt results in the stillborn death of her son her husband starts divorce proceedings and ensures that she is fired from her position. At her breaking point she ends up on a road trip and ends up at The Pearl where her life is forever changed.

Dax is the much younger sexy successful craftsman who is renting The Pearl to her. Although his first encounter with her makes him privy to information that she doesn’t know they do become friends and then much more. He infiltrates the barriers she has built around her heart but when she must return to face the nightmare her life has become she knows that their relationship could damage the business he has worked so hard for she ends things. Will they be able to find their way back to each other?

I really enjoyed the narration by Melissa Moran and Joe Hempel. The nuances of their voices made you feel like you were there with them.

A different kind of love story

This was a great romantic story about a woman who believes she has nothing left to live for and the man who shows her that she can have everything she ever wanted. Harlow James is a world renowned transplant surgeon from New York. She finds herself in an organic desolate airship in the outskirts of New Mexico after losing her job and her husband. She meets Dax the much younger owner of the Pearl, the place she has rented out and he offers to show her around his hometown.

They form a close bond over the week, however they are both keeping secrets from one another and when the truth is revealed, the fallout may just be too much for them to handle. I loved this older woman, younger man dynamic, the dual POV gave a great transission into the feelings of both Dax and Harlow and there was a lot of emotional heartache faced that gave the story so much depth. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Great new series

I really enjoyed "Everything She Ever Wanted" by Liz Durano. I've become a fan of this author over the past year, having read several of her books. Each one is well written, but also unique in their own way. The characters and story lines leave you wanted more at the end. This book was no exception. I loved the introduction to a couple new characters, Harlow and Dax and I look forward to seeing how this series builds and develops from this first book. Experiencing this as an audio book really made the story come to life!
If you are a fan of contemporary romance, you should add this book to your collection.
Happy Reading...enjoy!

Too good to miss

Everything She Ever Wanted is an older woman/younger man romance—but so much more. It has a well thought out plot and fully developed characters, especially Harlow and Dax. It touches on the truth that powerful men are believed and trusted over women, regardless of their stature. I enjoyed hearing both points of view brought to life by Melissa Moran and Joe Hempel. (so great that Liz hired both a male and female rather than trying to have one person do both). This is one you won’t want to miss.

So Good!!!

I loved this older woman - younger man romance. The story was so well written and the narration perfection. This book has so many emotions in it. The story is realistic and original. The path to love was unconventional, the characters were strong and endearing. This is a standalone listen and part of a series. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written my review. I will definitely be listening to more books by both the author and narrators. The point of views of the characters was very enlightening. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. The imagery in the story was also very good. Having visited Taos previously, I could envision the Pearl.

Everything She Ever Wanted was so engaging.

I loved hearing about Dax & Harlow's storyline, I can't believe it only took me 2 days which is a record for me,I wanted to find out what happened between these characters, I listened pretty much non-stop.I urge you to buy this audible you won't regret .I also followed along with the book.

Moving story! Love the narrators

Everything She Ever Wanted was amazingly emotional! I couldn’t even imagine what Harlow was going through. She is a super skilled pediatric transplant surgeon who is having one heck of a time everywhere else in her life… her lovely (said with sarcasm) husband was a cheating unfaithful shell of a man. He angered me when he turned up engaged to his mistress. Ugh… so I can see why Harlow wanted to run off and take off. She’s so troubled with the death of a stillborn baby, her marriage crumpling… she wants to end her life. So she takes off and enjoys a drunken night but decides the time isn’t right to dies so puts it off.

Dax stumbles upon her and her suicide note. While he’s attracted to her, he’s troubled by the letter. I loved how grouchy Harlow was and how Dax pursued her relentlessly. Watching her grow and flourish with Dax is a beautiful… it’s a beautiful story about finding yourself and learning who you really are. Liz Durano wrote a moving story. She was able to describe the feelings and thoughts of a person who has lived it. Then there’s the descriptions of the plot… you get this view of a wild beauty that is colorful and hopeful.

I listened to the audio. Joe Hempel and Melissa Moran work beautifully together. I can’t even tell you the emotions that Moran oozes into this with her gorgeous voice. Jow Hempel is quickly becoming a favorite narrator for me. His voice is so charming and so fierce, when it needs to be. There’s some amazing sex appeal in this one!!

Older woman, younger man...

This audiobook story was about a female transplant surgeon whose husband (also a transplant surgeon) walked out on her after their baby was stillborn, while he was also having an affair with his office manager. She goes on the road from NYC, only to end up in New Mexico staying in a sustainable living house she rents. It’s there she meets the hero, a master carpenter who also happened to build the house. Though he’s 13 years younger, he starts to teach her that her self worth is a lot more than she had imagined. Narration was well performed.

Mah...

Troppo dramma. Avrei preferito qualcosa di diverso; specialmente l'inizio mi ha parecchio disturbato in senso negativo.

Sweet and heartfelt.

A lovely story beautifully performed by Melissa Moran and Joe Hempel. Everything She Ever Wanted may be the title but, for Harlow, what she really wants has been elusive. The story is so well rendered by the two voice actors that the narration held my attention totally as the story unfolded. The images painted in my head of the earthships and Taos were so vivid, that I had to go and do some research. I now have gorgeous pictures of the setting to accompany my listening. Lovely x
