Book Description

Suppose the solution to all your problems is the one thing you never wanted…

It figures the one time Sabrina Cassidy is determined to do the responsible thing, karma kicks in. After four years on the road chasing her musical dream, she’s stranded six hours from home with no money, a ruined credit history—and morning sickness.

Out of options, she swallows her legendary independent streak and calls the only person who won’t hang up on her. Luke, the man she left behind.

Marc Sterling’s first instinct is to protect his business partner and best friend from another broken heart. That means letting her think she’s talking to Luke, then finding a way to send her in the opposite direction.

When he shows up at her hotel room, there’s something in the air beside their customary insults. Sure, her rebellious attitude, smart mouth—and purple panties—still drive him crazy, but now it’s a different kind of crazy. The kind that has him driving her home instead of to the nearest airport.

And when Luke offers to solve all her problems if she’ll only say “I do”, Marc realizes he’s just crazy enough—about her—to forget whose heart he wanted to protect.

Warning: Contains two people who don’t like each other very much, a Toyota that can’t quite handle the road trip home, and a spontaneous proposal. Or two. Or three. And foreplay with—what else—pie filling.

    Format:Kindle Edition
    Since I discovered Erin Nicholas' novels I gobbled all 4 up and couldn't wait for the release of Anything You Want. Finally this day has come and I have to tell you I wasn't disappointed! When someone starts an Erin Nicholas novel they expect a sweet&steamy, heartwarming and laugh out loud funny story with girl/guy next door characters and Anything You Want certainly delivered.

    I loved that the hero and heroine were introduced very early on, and I didn't have to wait long for them to meet. (Though the hero starts off as Mr. Perfect Guy's best friend, you soon discover that there is much more between the heroine and Mr. Best Friend than what a secondary character status would warrant.)

    Marc (the best friend) is an amazing guy: he is loyal, warm-hearted, generous and honest. His deep understanding of Sabrina and her dreams and character is wonderful and astonishing, especially since they claim they only ever had a superficial friendship through Luke. And yet Marc proves that all this time he was observing and seeing Sabrina for who she is and everything she did throughout the years, like no one else did. I found this even more moving since all through their youth Sabrina and Luke were best friends: in college "they talked 4 times a day, eating at least one meal together" and yet it seems that Luke doesn't know her at all. During these talks she never did tell him of her dreams and aspirations?

    I have to confess I was conflicted with Sabrina's character. For the first part of the novel she appeared quite spoilt, rebellious and selfish, but then seeing her warped logic behind why she believes she owes Luke his happiness I thought she was selfless and finally mature. Unfortunately with the last stunt she pulled she left me baffled and not a bit confused.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Anything You Want 24 Jun. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Erin Nicholas is one a my top 5 favourite authors. After reading 'The Bradford' series and her latest book 'She's the One' I decided to try one of her other books. Well I was not disappointed.

    Sabrina Cassidy's car has broken down and she has no money. She rings a couple of friends to try and help her out but no one can. So her last resort is to call her best friend Luke Hamilton. Luke and Sabrina have history, Luke want to settle down four years ago but Sabrina left Justice (her hometown) and Luke. Unfortunately Marc Sterling answers the phone. Marc does not like Sabrina because if she says jump to Luke he says how high. Luke will do anything for Sabrina. Marc does not want Sabrina to have any contact with Luke so he leads her to believe she is taking to Luke.

    When Marc shows up to help Sabrina out she is shocked as she really thought she was talking to Luke on the phone. Marc plans on her not going back home to Justice and tries anything to stop her going - even trying to put her on a plane. Sabraina is determined to go back home as she is pregnant and she knows that Luke will look after her. Sabrina does however find that she attracted to Marc even though they could never really stand one another. Marc also realises that he also attracted to Sabrina.

    When she does finally get home and Luke finds out she is back her proposes to her. Sabrina has to decide does she want dependable, loyal Luke or does she want Marc who she is falling in love and does not like.

    I really liked the characters in this book. Sabrina at times did make me angry but I loved her when she is flirting with Marc and the back chat they give one another. Marc is lovely from start to finish.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Witty dialogue and definite chemistry 24 July 2011
    By Caitkin
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Bought this after reading the sample. Previous reviewer sets out the detail. In brief Sabrina left town 4 years previously to try and make a career in music and because she was looking for more than small town Justice could offer. Also her closest friend Luke with whom she had in an impulsive moment slept with and now found herself in a relationship with had proposed and deep down Sabrina knew she didn't feel the same way Luke did. 4 years later she is penniless and pregnant and stranded in the middle of nowhere. She calls on reliable Luke but gets his best friend instead. Marc and Sabrina have always had a prickly relationship. He thinks she did a number on Luke and to protect Luke he drives out to pick Sabrina up. However the reality is that he has always been attracted to her too. Cue road trip home, sexual tension and funny dialogue.

    I preferred the road trip part of the book personally. Once in Justice the story became a little farcical with Luke desperate to claim Sabrina and her unborn baby and Sabrina taking advantage of Luke in a way which wasn't appealing characterwise. But the scenes with Marc were good and I did enjoy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect sweet&steamy and chuckle out loud romantic read! 16 Mar. 2011
    By Stella (Ex Libris) - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Since I discovered Erin Nicholas' novels I gobbled all 4 up and couldn't wait for the release of Anything You Want. Finally this day has come and I have to tell you I wasn't disappointed! When someone starts an Erin Nicholas novel they expect a sweet&steamy, heartwarming and laugh out loud funny story with girl/guy next door characters and Anything You Want certainly delivered.

    I loved that the hero and heroine were introduced very early on, and I didn't have to wait long for them to meet. (Though the hero starts off as Mr. Perfect Guy's best friend, you soon discover that there is much more between the heroine and Mr. Best Friend than what a secondary character status would warrant.)

    Marc (the best friend) is an amazing guy: he is loyal, warm-hearted, generous and honest. His deep understanding of Sabrina and her dreams and character is wonderful and astonishing, especially since they claim they only ever had a superficial friendship through Luke. And yet Marc proves that all this time he was observing and seeing Sabrina for who she is and everything she did throughout the years, like no one else did. I found this even more moving since all through their youth Sabrina and Luke were best friends: in college "they talked 4 times a day, eating at least one meal together" and yet it seems that Luke doesn't know her at all. During these talks she never did tell him of her dreams and aspirations?

    I have to confess I was conflicted with Sabrina's character. For the first part of the novel she appeared quite spoilt, rebellious and selfish, but then seeing her warped logic behind why she believes she owes Luke his happiness I thought she was selfless and finally mature. Unfortunately with the last stunt she pulled she left me baffled and not a bit confused. At that last twist when she pulled on Luke's strings and the way she used her influence over Luke to have him at her beck and call disappointed me as she went back once again to the needy, self-centered, egoistic teenager phase I thought she has already passed and outgrown.

    When Erin writes about Sabrina's relationship with music, her passion, drive and life force can be felt through the pages. It is enthralling, passionate and overwhelming in the best possible way!

    The highlight of this novel was the nonstop banter between Sabrina and Marc, filled with sexual innuendos and double entendres. Their witty verbal duels were at times laugh out loud funny:

    Marc giving a job description to Sabrina on what her position at the bar would entail:

    "Get me coffee for instance."
    Her eyes narrowed. "Uh, huh. I hear arsenic dissolves nicely in hot liquid."
    He would not smile. But it was tough. "Wash my apron."
    Her eyes narrowed. "You should know that I have a condition that manifests by spontaneously sewing pink ruffles on things."
    "Alphabetize my recipes."
    "The only letters I know are F and U."
    He moved around the end of the bar, smiling in spite of himself. "How about inventory? I need someone to count my mushrooms."
    "Yeah, once you run out of fingers it gets tough, doesn't it?"

    then at other times left me breathless with the palpable attraction and sizzle between them:

    "He doesn't get it."
    "Get what?"
    "What he should be doing to win you over."
    "What should he be doing?" She was very interested in Marc's opinion on this.
    He moved in a little closer. "He should be telling you that you are the sexiest thing he's ever seen. That he passes by as close to you as possible whenever he can just to smell your hair. That when you laugh it makes him want to French kiss you up against the wall. He should buy you something you'd really appreciate--like cinnamon massage lotion. That he could lick off, slowly and thoroughly, after rubbing it all over your body."
    She swallowed hard. "I don't think you're supposed to eat lotion."
    "Edible massage lotion is made to be eaten."

    The chemistry between Marc and Sabrina was so tangible; the metaphorical spark ignited the fire every time these two were together!

    As usual, the trademark humour of Erin Nicholas' novels (and one of the aspects which in my opinion sets Erin Nicholas' novels apart from the other contemporary romance novels) was there and very present.

    "He wanted her to leave Luke alone. He didn't necessarily want her tortured or dead or anything. Miserable was okay. Unhappy, friendless, broken-hearted were all acceptable. But in danger or hurt probably not. Dammit."

    "The thing that really put Sabrina on Marc's do-not-go-there list was the fact that he found her to be the most frustrating person in the entire world. If he said the sky was blue, she would argue it was purple, just to annoy him. He'd once complimented her outfit. She'd asked if his mother knew he was gay."

    This just made me roar of laughter! Imagining Marc's face at that comment!!! :-D

    An added bonus I wasn't expecting and thus came as a wonderful surprise was Marc's moving tenderness and sweet moments. Marc's developing feelings towards another man's baby choked me up quite a few times and made me tear up:

    "He wanted to watch her tummy grow, wanted to be able to compare day to day how her body changed. He wanted to watch her change too, as motherhood would surely add to her personality. He was curious how she would react when her child started walking, or when he or she first learned to read. He wanted to tease her and laugh with her and support her and tell her she was amazing. But all he said was, "I'm starving.""

    There was an absolutely unforgettable scene in the hospital maternity ward: Sabrina was at the doctor's for a check up, and both men turned up to be with her. The men's hospital room who-knows-more-about-pregnancies battle was wonderful, funny, entertaining and sweet. To see that Marc a man who has nothing to do with the baby, the pregnancy still takes all the time and effort to do research and read on the subject to be ready and in the loop for Sabrina was very moving.

    For full disclosure I only had two minor complaints: the first being my above detailed problem with Sabrina's last stunt (though I see why it was necessary for the sake of the plot it still leaves me undecided regarding Sabrina's character), the other was that when it was revealed Kat (Sabrina's best (and seemingly only) friend) has had feelings for Luke (for more than a decade!). I had some problems believing that she could be a loyal and selfless friend to Sabrina, when Sabrina is the reason she can't be together with the man she loves...

    Verdict: Anything You Want was a delightful read I would definitely recommend to any romance lovers! I love that reading an Erin Nicholas novel always makes me feel as if I just got another bunch of great friends. The palpable and irresistible chemistry, and the chuckle out loud banter between the hero and heroine as well as the general humour makes Anything You Want an outstanding romance.

    I give Anything You Want 4.5 stars!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Satisfying Read from Erin Nicholas 18 Mar. 2011
    By Davie - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I have a handful of favorite authors. Erin Nicholas is definitely on that list. Her "Bradfords" series was incredibly entertaining, addictive, and affecting. "Anything You Want" is yet another work from Erin Nicholas that fits those descriptors.

    Sabrina is an emotionally immature singer-songwriter with a history of narcissistic behavior. Marc is a devoted brother and friend who tries to protect his brother, Luke, from Sabrina's dubious decision making. While running interference, Marc falls madly in love with Sabrina. But Luke, the quintessential "good guy", continues to try to rescue Sabrina from herself.

    This is a funny, romantic, sexy, wrenching book that examines growing up, childhood impressions, and "doing the right thing". It is another lightning fast read. My only hope is that Ms. Nicholas turns this set of characters into another series (Kat and Luke, anyone?) and we get to see how the residents of Justice, Nebraska evolve.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Great Chemistry 28 May 2012
    By Ramblings From This Chick Blog - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback
    I have very mixed feelings about this book. On one hand I loved the hero. He was great. Witty, passionate and caring. On then on the other hand I couldn't stand the heroine. I mean it. I seriously loathed her. So when it comes to writing a review for this book I'm torn. While I was able to finish the book quite quickly, I did have a few moments where I had to put it down and walk away just out of sheer frustration.

    Let me explain. Sabrina left home four years ago and hasn't looked back. She went off in pursuit of making it big in the music scene. Now broke and pregnant she wants to return home to raise her child but on the way her car breaks down and not having any other options decides to call Luke, her oldest friend and former fiance' to the rescue.

    Marc and Luke have been best friends ever since Marc moved into town when they were twelve. After a terrible car accident kills all of Marc's family, Luke's family takes Marc in and raises him as Luke's brother. Marc will do anything for Luke and his family. So when he finds out Sabrina is calling for Luke he decides to intercept the call. No way is he going to let Luke fall back into the trap that is Sabrina. All she has ever done is hurt Luke by stringing him along. So you can imagine Sabrina's surprise when Marc shows up at the hotel instead of Luke.

    Marc and Sabrina have a volatile relationship to say the least. Neither have really ever gotten along and when they are together they are constantly bickering. Though this time when they both see each other, the bickering somehow turns into something a bit more. Their heated words become filled with sexy innuendo's and double entendre's. Both can't deny this attraction they are feeling towards the other. But how can they act upon it when they know it will do nothing but hurts the one's they are closest with?

    Once they are both home, the attraction hits them both in full force. Little touches here and there suddenly turns into sex against the wall. The chemistry between these two is electric and they both find it hard to stay away from the other. I loved their interactions with each other and I found when other parties weren't around I loved Sabrina and Marc together. I loved the witty banter back and forth. Things get heated between them quickly and I love that neither are able to deny their attraction.

    What bothered me about this story was the way Sabrina was when Marc isn't around. As soon as she gets back into town the confident and independent Sabrina disappears. She once again starts stringing Luke around and I HATED that. I hated the fact that she doesn't love Luke and she knows that she doesn't and probably never will but she decides it's okay to marry him. Um what the hell. How is that even kosher? Really? Not only does she have feelings for Marc that could be turning into love but it's okay to marry someone that you don't love just because he can give your kid a home. I thought this made Sabrina seem like a total bitch and beyond selfish. And don't even get me started on Luke or her dad.

    Really the only reason I found myself turning the pages is to see what Marc was up to. I instantly found a connection with him and he was just so adorable. He is battling his feelings for Sabrina because he knows how much Luke cares about her and he doesn't want to do anything that will jeopardize his and Luke's relationship. I felt so bad for Marc at times. He just wants to be happy but the one thing making him happy could potentially be the thing that ruins his whole life. Oh Marc.

    All in all this book was an okay read for me. I was able to finish and I really liked Marc. The story itself was cute and sweet at times but it's still a little hard for me to get past Sabrina and the way she acted with everyone besides Marc.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Wanted! 16 Mar. 2011
    By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I just recently became a fan of Erin Nicholas when I downloaded her book Just Right: The Bradford's book 1. I was barely finished with Just Right and I was downloading the rest of her books. Anything You Want is the first book in a long time that I have really been excited about before it was released. I read many excerpts from Anything You Want on a few different sites and they only made me want more. I love books with strong heroines, equally strong hero's, interesting situations, comedy, drama and the intense feelings they bring to a story. I look for authors whose writing can pull me in to their story and make me feel like I am part of it. Authors that make it impossible to put the books down until the last page has been turned and for the most part we find Happily Ever After. I have found that with Anything You Want.

    I enjoyed the flow of this book. The sexual tension that built between Marc & Sabrina gave me a chuckle. I liked how it built slowly and they did not just hop right into bed and go from there. This book contained the perfect amount of funny, (hubby thinks I am nuts while I am laughing out loud at times) perfect amount of "Steamy", and the right balance of interfering friends made for a great read.

    So, to sum this one up... 5 stars from me and I am off now to bake an Apple Pie!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a delight to read!!! 29 May 2012
    By Molly - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Oh. My. God. Can I tell you how awesome this book is?! Erin Nicholas is by far one of the most talented authors I've read this year, and this book, easily the best of 2012 so far. I absolutely loved every minute of reading this amazing book, and I can't wait to get my hands on more of Ms. Nicholas' work. The characters and the plot line are instantly captivating and keep the reader hooked until the last page.

    Sabrina. I loved her character, but wanted to strangle her on occasion! She is witty, smart, funny,beautiful.....and pregnant. When her car breaks down in Muddy Gap Wyoming, she picks up the phone and calls the one person she knows she can depend on in any problem, even if it has been four years since she's seen him and broke his heart. She's used to Luke always being there for her when she calls, no matter the problem. She loves the feeling she gets knowing that even if he isn't everything to her, she's everything to him. When she calls her best friend, she doesn't realize she has the wrong guy, until he shows up in her motel room. While she's naked. And she's attracted to her best friend's brother. In a major way. That's where the real fun begins!

    Marc is super sexy, and full of just as much spunk. But, he dislikes Sabrina. In a big way. They've always had issues with each other and were never really friends, but four years ago, she broke his best friend and brother's heart. Now, he'll do anything to keep her from coming back home, including forcing her on a plane to anywhere but home. What he wasn't counting on, was enjoying the banter between them, feeling the hot, sizzling attraction that comes in the form of a pregnant, sassy, sexy woman. And, he wasn't counting on Luke marrying Sabrina. Or losing his heart.

    I absolutely loved watching these two characters fight the sizzling attraction, then flirt, then fight it, then flirt some more. With their witty attitudes, the banter between them became absolutely laughable. I laughed many times through this book and was not ready to close the pages. I loved cheering for Marc, and wanted to trade places with Sabrina on more than one occasion, especially when up against a wall ;).

    This is most definitely worthy of the highest 5 Book rating I could possibly give. I wish I could give it so much more! But, sadly, I can't so 5 Books will have to suffice. It's definitely my favorite book of 2012 so far! Let me tell you this, go grab a copy of this book right now. You'll laugh, you'll smile and you'll want a Marc Sterling of your own! Book 2, Everything You've Got, is at the TOP of my Wishlist and I can't wait to get it sitting pretty on my Kindle. Book 1 is there to stay, and I'm sure book 2 will be too! Amazingly fantastic job, Ms. Nicholas! I can't wait for more :).
