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.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Anything You Can Do is a hot, hilarious, and addictive enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy about childhood rivals, Daisy Bell and Lucas Thatcher. After years in college, med school, and residency, Daisy is back in Hamilton, Texas, to take over the only family practice in town. She’s worked hard to be where she is, and now that she’ll soon take over Dr. McCormick’s family practice, nothing will get in the way of that. Right before she starts her practice, her best friend and Lucas’ sister, Madeleine, drops the bomb and tells her that not only is Lucas back in town, he’s going to work at the same practice as Daisy.
Daisy always thought she’s the only one taking over the family practice, and she still plans to go that way. Now the two are back at it again, but this time, instead of grades and sports, they’re fighting over the sole ownership of the practice.
The days go on where the two try to one up each other. Like when they were kids, sparks fly when they’re sparring, but this time there’s an almost suffocating sexual tension hovering above them. It only takes 24 hours in a room together to make them give in.
This book left me grinning and laughing like a total whacko! Anything You Can Do had R.S. Grey’s effortless humor and engaging narrative that had me hooked. I loved the long foreplay between the two, and the tension was sizzling!
It reminded me of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, another story I’ve absolutely loved! The couple’s antics are hilariously absurd, but it was entertaining to see them go head-to-head.
Both MCs were likable, but Lucas Thatcher now has a special place in my heart. He’s confident, smart, and he’s a freaking doctor who wears Clark Kent glasses! Plus he’s sweet, charming, and hot as f*k. This man just made me swoon!
Daisy pretty much goads Lucas into their fights because it’s what she’s known to do her whole life. It was a relief to see her go to her senses about why she’s been fighting Lucas so much.
“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?”
I was laughing and giggling throughout the story, but the epilogue pretty much killed me with its sweetness! It was so right.
The story was mostly told in Daisy’s POV, but we get a glimpse of Lucas’ thoughts through his unsent e-mails. If you’re looking for a light, fun, and sexy hate-to-love romance with witty banter and amazing sex, you’ll definitely enjoy Anything You Can Do!
