    2. Everything I’ve never had is not what I expected it would be. I anticipated amazing love story about burning feeling that eats you alife, but I got something entirely else and now I’m not really sure what to think about it. This novel can easily mesmerize and is definitely beautiful, but I felt the need for something more. I loved and admired most of the book, but something was poking me in the head, telling me there needs to be something more and fortunately last 100 pages had this „it” [...]


    3. Perfect!I absolutely adored this book! It was so moving. I went into it quite blind, as I just skimmed over the blurb and I'd agreed to review it for the author, as I already knew I enjoyed her writing style. So I wasn't too fussed about finding out what I was getting myself into. I kind of like it that way sometimes.And boy, was Everything I've Never Had a nice surprise! 5 stars for Celeste & Adrian!"You and this family are the best thing that's ever happened to me. Every day when I wake up [...]


    4. 4.5 starsI’ve never been to New Orleans, but thanks to the descriptive beauty in the prose of Lynetta Halat, I feel as if I’ve just spent a couple of days right there, wrapped up in the lives of the Hebert Clan, their friends and loved ones and it was as if I lived this story…as if I became part of this story. I fell deeply in love with Celeste, Adrian, Archer, Paris and Finn. They completely and utterly stole my heart.I’m mindful not to give anything away about this story because I real [...]


    5. 4--Adrian Loving--Stars!!!This was a really good read. It didn't feel like the typical NA storyline. Celeste comes from a powerful, protective and domineering family. Told how to act, how to feel, how to liverrying Tripp, at the choice of her family, Celeste never experienced true love. The love of friendship and companionship and love of their children but never the all encompassing, butterflies in your stomach, gives you tingles kind of love. Until Adrian. Adrian is Celeste's cousin by marriag [...]


    6. 3.5Things I liked about this book1. Cafe DuMonde and beignets2. Book is set in New Orleans3. New Orleans Saints4. The heroine isn't a young dumb girl. She's 37 and is widowed5. Adrian is 29.A little cougar action6. Adrian is a rockerThings I didn't like.1. The back and forth I'm not worthy blah blah blah.2. It made me sad when Adrian (view spoiler)[ had to deploy! The military spouse in me wanted to boohoo for Celeste (hide spoiler)]3. I did not like that she stated she never loves Tripp.That ma [...]


    7. Author Lynetta Halat’s second book, Everything I’ve Never Had, was a gorgeous, sexy, emotional, atmospheric masterpiece of contemporary romance!! If you can’t tell from that opening statement, I love, love, love this story! Celeste and Adrian drew me to them from their first scene, and I was swept up into their love story and carried along for the ride, almost becoming a part of it myself. Celeste, a mother to three uniquely interesting boys, lost her husband to cancer. Their relationship [...]


    8. This one was really good in an unexpected way. I guess I'm so used to variations on the same story that I can usually sketch out the plot from the blurb. Not this timeAdrian was an awesome hero - strong, sexy, and totally devoted the Celeste and her children. It took me a while to understand the extended families dynamics - and it wasn't what I had anticipated. It took me a while to wrap my brain around the "Mafi" like situation. I adored Adrian and Celeste together. They really are a fantastic [...]


    9. DNF. I can't do it, I keep trying to read this book but I just can't do it anymore. Before I read this I saw all the 4 and 5 star reviews and thought I was about to have my mind blown. Instead all I got from it was blah blah blah. The characters were not all that likable and to be honest were rather forgettable. I may have only read 50% of this book but that 50% was just the same things over and over again. I had to remind myself a few times that this wasn't a college book, they were meant to be [...]


    10. *ARC Given to Blog for Honest Review*4.5‘mimi’ ‘Give Me My Blues’KissesOMG I loved this book. Loved it. Straight up, lots of reasons why I loved it but that doesn’t even begin to really justify my love for it…I just freaking did. The characters were amazing, the angst was off the charts, the love…omg their love…yeah. I just freaking couldn’t put this book down. Like finished it in 24 hours kind of thing. Celeste Marie Dubois Hebert…at 37 she is a widow and a single mother to [...]


    11. 5 Amazing Stars !!!!!! My FULL Review is now posted!!!!Wait till you all meet Adrian. he is 100% swoon worthy and is going on my Book Boyfriend list :) Once again Lynetta has blown me away with her writing style. She truly knows how to write a story that grips you right from the start and leaves you wondering where your day went because you were so consumed by the story you are reading. After reading Every Rose I was kind of scared to see where this book was going to go. I remember asking Lynett [...]


    12. I was lucky enough to be a beta reader for Lynetta. I'm always amazed at the picture she can write into her words. She has a way of making you get lost in the words she writes.She gained my attention with Every Rose and captured my heart with Everything I've Never Had!CelesteAdrianCeleste is the daughter in a powerful family. She is a widow raising three boys and navigating life while trying to balance the world she lives in with the way she wants her boys to grow up. Adrian, her husband's sexy [...]


    13. Beginning: angsty, kinda forbidden romance, I wanted to bash my head a couple of timesMiddle: OK!!! Really digging this book! Hero and heroine finally admit their feelings to one another. Gets kinda sappy but whatever, I see an HEA coming!!Between the middle and end: MAJOR why moment?!?! Can't they just be together? I swear Lynetta added that part just for the shock value. End: Nice, sweet epilogue; letters were touching but Adrian's coping mechanisms nearly drove me insane. (view spoiler)[ I fr [...]


    14. 3.5 StarsI really enjoyed reading Everything I've Never Had! It was a somewhat dark or maybe sad read. Halat is a good writer. I guess I just expected more from the story than what I got. There was a huge build up, with little hints about something that could go terribly wrong, in regards to her family finding out, and it didn't. The climax of the story, was a bit anticlimactic to me. It definitely pulled at your heartstrings, but I was hoping for some action. I kinda like the hint of forbidden [...]


    15. A new-to-me-author that proved to be a winning choice in this well-written story that presents a taste of refreshing uniqueness. This one is packed with dramatic gut-wrenching subjects with a little hint of infiltration by the mafia starring a powerful cast of characters. It's the kind of book that is irresistibly satisfying and one that tugs at your heart, as well. It also includes some very addictive sexy romance at its best. And if that wasn't enough, the treasure trove of unusual and unique [...]


    16. Enter the giveaway (September 2014) at Ana's Attic Book BlogWith all of the books nowadays featuring 17-23 year olds, it is a true pleasure when one comes along that sweeps you away and features an older heroine.

Part of a very powerful and dangerous family, Celeste's marriage was arranged. She loved her late husband and the father [...]


    17. 4.5 Stars Everything I Wanted to ReadI’ve read second chance romances, where the widow wife attempts to love again; but this story is a kind of its own. Celeste Hebert, 38 yr. old widow has her plate full, balancing life as a single mom of three gentlemen in the making sons, expectations of her family, sorting out her feelings for her deceased husband’s cousin as well as her best friend, Adrian. While Celeste has so much to cope with, her number one priority is to her sons. I was completely [...]


    18. I was given the amazing honor of receiving an ACR of Ms. Halat's second novel, and what an incredible honor it was.Have you ever read a story and known instantly, you have become smarter or more educated, because of it? When you read Author Halat’s work that is exactly what you get. Goodness, does this talented author have a way of broadening her reader’s vocabulary and making them fall in love with the English language, all while emerging them in the wonders of literary genius? Nevertheless [...]


    19. Did I read the same book as everyone else who gave it 4 or 5 stars? First of all, the book DRAGGED! Majorly! The first half of it was basically: (view spoiler)[Her "I want you, but I'm sorry I kissed you"Him "I want you, but I'm no good for you"Her "I want you, but they won't let us be together"Him "I want you, but I don't deserve you" (hide spoiler)]There! Now you don't have to read it. HALF OF THE BOOK? honestly?The conversations they were having, were not dialogues, they were speeches directe [...]


    20. I thought long and hard about how I was going to start my review of Everything I Never Had by Lynetta Halat. I know that seems silly to most as I usually just sit down after reading a book and give you my thoughts on it. But there was something special about this book. Something more and I wasn’t sure how I was going to convey all of the emotions I felt while reading this book. So here it is…Everything I’ve Never Had is Everything I Love in a book.I will be the first to admit I was a littl [...]


    21. 5 Well earned Emotional and Amazing Stars**ARC provided by Author for Honest Review** Everything I’ve Never Hadwas a truly remarkable novel and another hit for author Lynetta Halat. I was engrossed and impressed from page one. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this book but I it surpassed even my wildest imaginings. The blurb warns of twists and turns and boy it doesn’t lie. There may not be car chases and deranged killers running all over but my heart was pumping just as hard. Besi [...]


    22. That kiss…that kiss was exceptional, and I’ll never forget it. As I stand here and as long as I live, it was the best I’ve ever had, the best I could ever have.…and this is where the story begins in Everything I’ve Never Had by Lynetta Halat. We meet Celeste, a widowed mother of three. A strong, independent woman, she is still somewhat trapped under the thumb of her prominent (and pretty shady) family. A night out with the girls turns into something decidedly different when, fueled by [...]


    23. ****4 You Are My Heart Stars****Everything I've Never Had is the second novel I've read by this author, and I'm always amazed by her writing but also her ability to create stories that are so original; like in this book the heroine is a thirty seven year old widow with three kids. This story was beautiful, sexy and truly captivating.Celeste was married to her best friend for fifteen years before he died of cancer and they had three beautiful boys. Her life has always been dominated by her family [...]


    24. I'm going to round up from a 3.5 star-rating because I'm feeling generous. This was a good story, characterizations were great, the dialog didn't feel stilted or anything. The boys maybe were smarter and more wise than they should have been for their years, but I'll buy it. And even though this was from the heroine's POV, I really did feel like the hero was in love with her. I wasn't left feeling like I didn't get him. But--there's a lot going on in this book. In the beginning of the story it se [...]

    26. First off I want to thank this author for the privilege of reading this because girl you do have a gift with words and I have been reading for 50 years and there are some really good books out there but it has been a long time that one has blown me away that thank goodness my couch was there to catch me. Once you start this make sure you have the time because you will not want to put it down it grips you that hard and doesn't let go until you reach the credits. That the characters here-Celeste a [...]


    27. 4.5 stars! “You’re my life, my love, my heaven,” I pause for a second before I give her words back. Her words that rocked my world. “My everything I’d never had,” I whisper ".“Being with you, Adrian, it’s everything I’ve ever needed. with you, I feel like you love me for me. Not for what I have to offer you or what you can acquire or who you can make happy by being with me. And the things you make me feel—I thought I’d never be free to feel, so I don’t regret us. I’ll n [...]


    28. “Sometimes we forget to appreciate the things that truly matter because our vision is so clouded by all of the mundanes. The here and now become our obsession , and we forget the concept of our finite state because with all the little things vying for our attention it feels like we'll go on forever.”I was so happy when I reached the book the end of the book and no one had died! After every rose I was reluctant to read this because I didn't want to start crying again. I am not saying though t [...]


    29. I had the honor of receiving an arc copy if this book. I started it and was immediately in love with Adrian and Celeste. Lynetta really knows how to draw you in. She creates the most amazing characters that you can't help but fall in love with. I only had one character that I didn't like but isn't that what is supposed to happen in all books I loved how Adrian loved Celeste and how he just loved the boys. "I love you, Celeste. Like crazy love, like I can't sit across from you without wanting to [...]


    30. I found this book on Facebook and all it had was a preview of it. So I came to and read the synopsis for the book and I was hooked I could not wait for it to come out. I got a chance to read the book for an honest review and I must say it exceeded my expectations. This story is about Celeste who has lost her husband to cancer and her best friend Adrian. Both of them have felt this magnetic pull toward one another for years but during most of that time Celeste was still married. This story is an [...]
