About the Book

Before you get down on bended knee… 

…you should be pretty darn sure the answer will be yes. For ten years, Connor O'Rourke has been waiting for Jessica Dunn to take their on-again, off-again relationship public, and he thinks the time has come. His restaurant is thriving, she's got her dream job at Blue Heron Vineyard—it's the perfect time to get married. 

When he pops the question, however, her answer is a fond but firm no. If it ain't broke, why fix it? Jess has her hands full with her younger brother, who's now living with her full-time, and a great career after years of waitressing. What she and Connor have is perfect: friends with an excellent benefits package. Besides, with her difficult past (and reputation), she's positive married life isn't for her. 

But this time, Connor says it's all or nothing. If she doesn't want to marry him, he'll find someone who does. Easier said than done, given that he's never loved anyone but her. And maybe Jessica isn't quite as sure as she thinks…

Kristan Higgins has the recipe to whip up the perfect romance every time!  With sparkling dialogue and heartfelt emotion, ANYTHING FOR YOU is a winner all around.

Higgins takes on Connor O'Rourke and Jess Dunn this time, and she is giving no mercy.  On again-Off again is all Connor and Jess will ever be, well, if Jess has her way. Connor has never pushed the issue because pushing might mean losing her forever, and he isn't ready for that to happen.  Until she says "No", and Connor realizes it might be time to push or move on.  

As a fan of Higgins for a long time, and a huge fan of the Blue Heron series, it was so much fun getting into the heads to two of the series most beloved secondary characters, Connor and Jess.  Jess, had a rough go, but has made the best of what she was given, worked hard and maybe, just maybe, thought she could have something special that was all her own (Connor).  And Connor, my favorite O'Rourke brother, always great for some comedic relief (The Perfect Match) and to play the loving big brother (Waiting on You).  

I think it was Connor that stole my heart from the first page of ANYTHING FOR YOU.  Not that I didn't relate and feel for Jess, but Connor, yes he could be a dolt sometimes, but he just loved her so much, and I literally was crying at the end of this book.  Higgins couldn't have written a better ending.  ANYTHING FOR YOU has humor, so much heart and a fantastic couple that you find yourself cheering for out loud!  I never want the Blue Heron series to end!

If you have never ever read a Kristan Higgins romance...where the heck have you been?...then don't just pick up ANYTHING FOR YOU, you need to pick up this one, and the first four in the Blue Heron series (cause I have seriously done a re-read like twice in the last two months), and then go back and purchase ALL the rest of her backlist (starting with JUST ONE OF THE GUYS....oh the tears), and then you can join the millions of Higgins-a-holics who wait in hope for the next release to arrive!
