Lucas Thatcher has always been my enemy.
It’s been a decade since I’ve seen him, but our years on opposite coasts were less of a lasting peace and more of a temporary cease-fire. Now that we’re both back in our small town, I know Lucas expects the same old war, but I’ve changed since high school—and from the looks of it, so has he.
The arrogant boy who was my teenage rival is now a chiseled doctor armed with intimidating good looks. He is Lucas Thatcher 2.0, the new and improved version I’ll be competing with in the workplace instead of the schoolyard.
I’m not worried; I’m a doctor now too, board-certified and sexy in a white coat. It almost feels like winning will be too easy—until Lucas unveils a tactic neither of us has ever used before: sexual warfare.
The day he pushes me up against the wall and presses his lips to mine, I can’t help but wonder if he’s filling me with passion or poison. Every fleeting touch is perfect torture. With every stolen kiss, my walls crumble a little more. After all this time, Lucas knows exactly how to strip me of my defenses, but I’m in no hurry to surrender.
Knowing thy enemy has never felt so good.
Okay- so R.S. Grey might just be the queen of romantic comedies! Not only do her books always make me smile, swoon, and laugh- but she writes sexual tension like no other! Plus she never fails to weave in just the right amount of wit, humor, and creativity to her stories.
Anything You Can Do is an enemies-to-lovers story, but to the extreme. Daisy and Lucas have been competing with each other, basically since they were babies. Now as adults, they are both back in their home town to “compete” to take over a family medical practice- ready to stop at nothing to win. The scenes with these two were so well written and then add in snarky one-liners and playful banter and I couldn’t stop laughing. Plus there are some steamy sex scenes– hot, hot, hot!
“I love you, which seems crazy because up until about four days ago, I really thought I hated you. But when you think about it, love and hate aren’t so very different, right? To love someone is to strive to be a better person for them, and isn’t that what our hateful little competition has been about the whole time?”
As much as I liked this book, I will say that Daisy got on my nerves at times. She seemed SO focused on this war with Lucas, that she didn’t see what was right in front of her the whole time. Thankfully Lucas is a patient guy that was willing to wait (a long time) for her. As a reader, it was easy to fall in love with Lucas. I mean hello sexy doctor, but also he was smart and funny! Anything You Can Do, was a quick, light read that will have you laughing and swooning throughout.
