Summary

It was a mouthwatering kiss that changed everything....

One thing that held constant in Shelby Donovan’s life was her career. As a world-renowned artist, Shelby’s paintings traveled the globe, landing in museums and homes across the nation. But what she couldn’t seem to get under control was her love life. Her mother insisted it was because of her best friend, Sebastian Cartwright. They’ve known each other for years. Sebastian and Shelby shared everything; embarrassing moments, secrets, dating tips, affection, and even an explosive kiss during one tipsy night on Shelby’s birthday.

But, when Shelby’s current boyfriend asks for her hand in marriage, she should be excited, dancing, ready...but she isn’t. In fact, Shelby can’t stop thinking about the kiss she shared with Sebastian. It had to be a fluke, right? A simple, delicious, fiery kiss that pulled at her loins and caused her heartbeat to slam against her ribcage. Honestly, it rocked her world and thoughts of what could be played like piano keys in her head. But their friendship was too important to mix with the uncertainty of a relationship. Even worse, what if Sebastian didn’t feel the same way? It could ruin everything. 

Should Shelby accept the marriage proposal or shed her fears and open up to her best friend? Find out in Everything I Always Wanted.

Grown people acting like teenagers, playing with other people's emotions. Heard/read it all before blah blah 😒 Can we get some new material

Pretty Good Storyline

⭐⭐⭐3.5 stars for story
⭐⭐⭐⭐4.5 stars for the narration/performance

I always enjoy a good friends to lover storyline.....There was some unnecessary back and forth...but Sebastian and Shelby really did care deeply for one another even as best friends....I think the story really would have been a lot better if this author did more research....there was some contradictions within the story for instance, about the length of time the two had been in each other's lives as well as about what an artist can earn working at a university and several other things I noticed....I understand the the idea of a romance novel, but I love realism within the story...it makes the story more relatable and more believable. Ms. Wesleigh did a fantastic job narrating, but I have to say, this time I wasn't so taken with Benjamin Charles' performance, he tried a little to hard this time....and for me it didn't go over well.

I’m So Confused by this story!

I have read several of this author’s books and have really come to appreciate her story telling. However, nothing about this story makes sense. How do two adults fall in love but know they are in love? How do you finally profess your love but not be sure if you’re in a relationship. When Shelby accepted a date in front of him from another man, I wanted to stop listening to the book. What is the point of making the characters sound like immature teenagers? The only highlight was the narrators. They were awesome.

Really?

This was a great storyline; however, some of the stuff the main female character pulled was a bit suspect/naive. The narrators did a great job with characters.
