Anything for You (It's All About Attitude #6)
Since when was his best friend this hot?
The world according to Sam Kirk has just turned upside down. His best friend and business partner, Delaney Michaels, has returned from vacation a new woman...a gorgeous, hot new woman. Suddenly Sam is thinking entirely inappropriate thoughts about his buddy. Worse, with Delaney's changed look, she's abandoning their friendship in pur...more
This is a friends-to-lovers story, and that's all I need to say to summarize the plot. :) I like this kind of story, it's one of my comfort reads. I usually know what I'm getting and it's up to the author to deliver engaging characters, a pleasant pace to the story, some nice banter between the H/h and, why not, sexy love scenes.
This book was a hit in almost everything - Sam and Delaney were likable, their chemistry was great and their interactions (in and outside of the bedroom) were ...more
After harboring unrequited love for her best friend Sam for the past sixteen years, Delaney realizes that enough is enough and decides that she needs to cut him loose from her life if she’s to ever stand a chance of moving on and having the family she so desperately wants. But Delaney’s more than just his business partner and best friend, she’s the best thing in his life. Will Sam finally recognize what’s been staring him right in the face for the last sixteen years ...more
They grow up together, start a business together, rent apartments in the same building, hang out together and keep quiet as they watch men and women come and go from each other’s l ...more
I've decided that after reading a few "friends-to-lovers" themed books, I am NOT a fan of these type of stories. They drive me nuts! Most of these stories center on friendships that span years and the sheer lack self-awareness, in regards to romantic feelings, for one or both characters, irks me to no end. I'd sure feel special if it took someone I was in love with (usually one friend is already in love with the other) years to figure out they were in love with me. What a keeper. Not.

Sam Kirk and Delaney Michaels are in love. He just doesn’t know it yet. She’s known it since she was fourteen but has managed to convince herself that he won’t ever return her feelings, so why bother telling him. No, instead of talking to him, she’s going to run away.
That’s the conflict of this story.
I guess in certain circles it could be viewed as romantic to wait for the other person come to the right conclusion by himself, but ...more
I'll start with the premise: Delaney and Sam have been best friends for 16 years, since they were 14 years old. They do everything together, the live in the same building and they even set up a company together. The ...more
I never expect much from Blaze (or other Harelquin) titles, but this was a great great book!
In particular, I loved the heroine! It was all or nothing, no second best for her! Unlike so many heroines, she doesn't give in to the Hero at the frop of a hat... No, she sticks to her guns, all the way through.
The Hero, though quite a bit dense, was fun to read about as well... Watching him try to figure out why things were changing, but really having no clue was very entertaining, in n ...more
The characters started out looking very promising. Delaney especially managed to be slightly tomboy, but never so much so that she could be mistaken for a belching he-man watching football drinking beer. I liked the way she decided to take over control over her life so as to achieve her long time goal and really understood her dilemna regarding her partner Sam. Sam as the clueless womanizing easy-going surfer also had potential.
Sarah Mayberry is an excellent writer and Anything for You is another success. Unfortunately, the plotting suffers because of the emphasis on sex scenes in the Harlequin Blaze line. Mayberry makes plot decisions based on getting the couple in bed multiple times instead of using the space to explore the changing relationship between Sam and Delaney more fully. This makes for a good story with a fairly high ...more
I love Sarah Mayberry!And although this is not a perfect book (in SM standards)it's good enough with very interesting plot, super hot and very entertaining. I'm not a huge fan of the harlequin Blaze collection for several reasons, but how can you say no to a SM book?
Anything For You is the story of two best friends who eventually figure out that they love each other beyond friendship. This is one of my favorite romance plot lines. What makes this book stand out for me is that Sam and Delaney have been friends for years - the book opens with them still in contact and daily living as best friends. Usually books based on this premise have the best fr ...more
Written in Polish, sorry.
Na początek, tradycyjnie, skrót fabuły, choć właściwie wprowadzenie.
Sam i Delaney są przyjaciółmi od szesnastu lat. Dla ścisłości, Sam jest mężczyzną, Delaney kobietą (Bo imiona nie są zbyt jednoznaczne ;)). Oprócz przyjaźni łączy ich także praca, ponieważ są współwłaścicielami magazynu o sportach ekstremalnych X - Pro. O ile życie zawodowe jes ...more
This was definitely a short, fun and flirty read. Although it isn't going to be all that memorable, this was entertaining for the period that I was reading it. One thing that surprised me was that all this happened in Austrailia. I usually read romances staged in American states so reading about some Austrailian sights really had me interested.
Basically, this is the story of two best friends; Sam and Delaney. Delaney has long loved Sam, ...more
Sorry guys, but that's called sexual harassment. To go ahead and touch a woman like that -a person who trusts you utterly and completely- when you believe she's NOT interested, is creepy as hell. And no, saying "tell me to stop and I will" AFTER the fact is not cutting it.
It doesn't matter that both hero and heroine h ...more
A very light but still entertaining romance about two best friends. Definitely one of the lightest Mayberry books I've read but the characters are just as well created as I've come to expect from her.
Sam and Delaney have been best friends for 14 years. They co-own a business together, they live in the same building in matching apartments and they both each others default in whatever they do. But Delaney is tired of it. She's been in love with Sam for 14 years an ...more
This author is very very good at fleshing out her characters, and of writing scenes and diaogues that stick with you.
It's not perfect but I did enjoy it very very much.

He stopped when he was standing mere inches away. Reaching out, he captured her face in his hands and smoothed his thumbs across her cheekbones to clear her tears.
“You have no idea how relieved I am to hear you say that,” he said.”
Delaney stared at him for a beat. In a way, he was right. She was breaking up with Sam. He just didn't know it.”
