I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Jerica MacMillan created a book that hit the reading jackpot in my eyes with Anything You Need. She gives her readers not only a hot as hell rock star but also a best friend romance that is sure to have your heart beating overtime and leave you with stars in your eyes! I couldn't wait to open up Jerica's newest fictional world and get to know this couple who have been in bouts of lust and love with each other for years

I love a good rockstar romance and this is one of my favorites by Jerica MacMillan. This friends-to-lovers tale had no shortage of chemistry and hot sexy-times between our hero and heroine. As far as writing sexy-time scenes, Jerica is one of my very favorites. I can’t even put my finger on why, but I have to guess it is just choreographed just right to my liking, lol. Anyway, I loved this storyline and the promise of upcoming books. I have a feeling we have some interesting relationships going ...more

Anything You Need by Jerica MacMillan is the start of what I found to be a promising new series. It features the band Cataclysm and even had mention of other characters I've grown fond of in previous books by this author. This particular story centered around front man of the band Marcus and his best friend Kendra. The two have known each other since childhood and that friendship has held strong over the years. Strong enough that when Kendra needs a date for her parents anniversary party Marcus

Wow Jerica MacMillan has done it again. This series is fabulous. I have fallen in love with Marcus and Kendra and all the characters that are in this book. Marcus was so sexy but he was also such a sweet and nice person. He has loved Kendra for a very long time and he always told her that he would do "Anything You Need." Kendra was beautiful and the friendship she had with Marcus was one of the most important things in her life. No matter what he was doing or where he was Marcus was always there ...more

This was well on track to be a five star read for me. I'm actually in the middle of another book of "friends to lovers" that is just dragging so much with the will they, won't they, that I needed a break.

This was almost perfect.

I loved both Kendra and Marcus individually. Both were good humans, really relatable. However, Kendra was set up to be too much of a people pleaser to stand up against her parents overbearing? expectations. As the book unfolded and we, as readers, saw more interactions w

Who doesn’t love a good friends to lovers story?! Anything You Need was great, it had the right amount of angst and you fell in love with Marcus and Kendra the minute you started reading his book.

When Kendra needs a date for her parents anniversary party she knows straightaway who to ask, her best friend Marcus. Marcus has been in love with Kendra since the day they first met but has never told her how he feels because he would rather have her as a best friend than not at all and Kendra feels ex

Marcus and Kendra have been pals since high school, admiring, supportive, close - actually best - friends for years. They've both dated others, but nothing seemed to stick.

Marcus and Kendra have been brat friends since that were young children, but secretly, they both have wanted to be more. When Kendra asks him to be her fake boyfriend at a family function, to help keep her ex away, he agrees. As they both start realizing what exactly this will entail, their feelings start to grow.
Their relationship grew and their connection became stronger, but are two best friends really meant to be more? Marcus is all in, after all, he has always wanted Kendra and it liked him

Marcus and Kendra have been friends most of their lives, best friends. So when Kendra needs him to be her "fake" boyfriend to make her ex Mitchell leave her alone he will do anything for the woman he has been in love with for years. But when the lines blur between fake and reality things get complicated for the Rockstar and his best friend. When Kendra has to make a choice to save someone she loves it may destroy everything.

3.5-4 stars.

Lots of fun here.

We have Marcus and Kendra, they’ve been friends for a long time, so they take of each other. And when Kendra needs a fake date to present to her parents, why not Marcus?

Things are all fun and stuff, until real feelings start showing up between these two. A kiss is not just a kiss and the more they pretend they are a couple, the more difficult is to keep those friendship walls.

This was an overall fun read, I really liked these two. Coming from two VERY different world

Jerica’s new series is amazing. I never wanted Marcus and Kendra’s story to end! Having read all her books all I can say is I can’t get enough. Marcus and Kendra have been friends since high school and even though they each have feelings for the other they never wanted to lose their best friend by crossing a line. These two have always had each others backs and will do anything for one another. She attends his events to keep the crazies away, but now she needs him to keep her crazy away. What th ...more

A fun new rockstar series for me!

Marcus has been in love with his best friend Kendra since they were kids in middle school band. They watched each other date and never said a thing. But Marcus was always there if Kendra needed him. Even when his alt-rock band Catclysm got famous, they stayed in touch. Cataclysm went on a 2 year your that nearly had the guys killing each other. But Marcus was willing to get away from LA for a weekend to play Kendra's fake boyfriend to keep her parents from pushin

This book was such a great read!

What happens when two people who have been friends their whole lives decide to pretend to date each other? Well, a lot...when both parties have harbored feelings for each other for years. Add in a crazy, would-be stalker ex boyfriend, who really only wants you for your inheritance, and drama abounds.

Both Kendra and Marcus have been in love with each other for years, and it takes faking a relationship to prevent others from pursuing them to come to terms with it. T

This was a good read. The writing flowed well, and I liked the characters mostly. Marcus and Kendra were good together, and I thought they had great chemistry. My complaint was with Kendra. She really needed to learn to stand up for herself. She let her parents and her ex (I mean really?!) push her around. I'll try not to spoil anything, but I couldn't contain my eyerolls at the drama towards the end of the story. Kendra acts like she did what she had to do, and Marcus shouldn't be mad at her.

4.5 stars...

Ken & Marcus have to pretend to be bf & gf for the weekend so Kendra’s parents won’t try to force her onto her ex. What they each don’t know, however, is that each one is hot for the other.

This story is very well written. The author makes it very clear why they each kept their feelings for each other secret, & when they finally get together you just want to celebrate with them...

Her ex, Mitchy, Martin, Matthew... whatever... is such a conceited jerk.

Kendra aka Ken and Marcus have been friends for years and in love with each other almost as long. Ken doesn't want to take it further because she's afraid it will ruin their friendship. She was going out with this scumbag and asked Marcus to pretend to be her boyfriend so she could get away from him. They go to her parent's anniversary party as a couple and things work out so that they finally act on their feelings for each other. They have a fine relationship going until the scumb

Marcus and Kendra have been best friends since high school ... when Marcus was a band geek, but now he's a hot rock star. Kendra asks Marcus to be his fake boyfriend so that her ex-boyfriend will leave her alone. But it doesn't take long for the fake to become real because they have always loved each other, but didn't realize that they were "in love" with each other.

This is a quick, fun and steamy read! I liked the fact that it didn't take them long to ditch the fake relationship. They just seem

I know better than to start a Jerica MacMillan novel before bedtime. I devoured Anything You Need into the night. I loved Marcus and Kendra as best friends and couldn’t wait until they gave in to their attraction. I loved the words they shared and the way they cherished each other. The realization in their story of their love had me weeping, it was so special. I really enjoy how the well the author writes about musicians and the challenges they face. The title is perfect for this pair. The writi ...more

When Kendra needs a date to her parents anniversary party she asks Marcus if he would pretend to be in a relationship with her. Oh the sparks!!

OMG. I just finished reading this book, I am stunned by how well the Jerica portrays the story, characters, and the way I felt like I was in the story.
Kendra, Marcus, and Mitchell were well thought out. The story just rolled along with some normal and some not so normal problems. I felt for Kendra when she and Marcus try to pull off a fake relationship.
This is an excellent story about friends, to lovers, to not talking at all, and sharing.

Received an ARC for an honest review.

Kendra and Marcus are high school friends and have been in love with each other since that first day.

I really, really, really loved Marcus but I didn’t feel the same about Kendra. I thought she was immature, cared way to much about what her parents or anyone for that matter thought (about her) and she was so wrapped up in her
own world to care about anyone else but herself.

The story line was good and it was a cute short read. I’m interested to know what ha

They are best friends, but have been secretly in love with each other for years.
Marcus agrees to be Kendra's fake boyfriend, but over the course of the story, their relationship is not fake, as the feelings surface and the chemistry between them is perfect.
But with Kendra's ex-boyfriend threats, will they be able to stay together?

Overall good read

I liked Marcus and Kendra for most of the book; they have a great relationship dynamic. I also liked the storyline for the most part. Kendra's actions toward the end made me so mad, though! I don't agree with her decision at all and don't see how everyone was like "oh it was hee only option; I'd have done the same thing." She needed to grow a backbone and stop acting so childish. Other than that, Marcus was a doll and I enjoyed the storyline. That stupid decision of hers

Jerica MacMillan has produced another winning book that I absolutely enjoyed reading. Marcus and Kendra have been best friends forever and secretly in love with each other for just as long. When Kendra needs a date to her parents anniversary party she asks Marcus. Its not sparks... more like fireworks with a bit of drama for good reading. I absolutely recommend this book. I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book.

Friends to to lovers.

It is always difficult to make the decision to change a relationship from friends to lovers because there is always the fear losing the friendship if the romance doesn't work out. I can't believe they took so long to talk about their feelings. They could have talked about it and they would have known what they wanted without all the assumptions and doubts. I enjoyed reading the story and I love the ending.
