Anything You Can Do Book Review *R.S. Grey*
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.
Anything You Can Do is a lovable romance you want to hug close and never let go. Fans of author Julie James must pick up this latest by R.S. Grey because the main couple will remind you of the heroine and heroine in a James’ novel. This is a reunion of sorts for the heroine and heroine, who act like they despise one another. Their “hate” is manufactured because as it’s revealed, one half has always loved the other half, so much so they came back home to prove their worth in order to claim the heart of the one they have adored since they were children.
Daisy is a doctor who returns to her hometown to work at a practice with the long time town doctor in the hopes she’ll take over the practice when he retires. What she doesn’t know is that her mortal enemy Lucas, who is also a doctor has been given a job at the same practice. Daisy HATES Lucas because as children he always annoyed her and tried to one up her every chance he could get. They snipe and snark at one another, trading insults. Daisy is going to take him down once and for all. What she doesn’t know is that Lucas has been in love with her forever. He loves to dig at her and tease her to the point she’s ready to explode, but to him it’s like tugging on her pigtails or chasing after her in the schoolyard. He enjoys the banter to a point but he’s waited too long to make his move. He even went to a different college in order to give her space. But now he’s done playing games, and he’s out to win the heart of fair Daisy.
Everyone in town knows Daisy and Lucas are enemies, but now as adults things have changed. Daisy still can’t stand Lucas, but slowly she begins to see him differently. And then one night when they are forced into quarantine together because of a contagious patient, her secret attraction for Lucas bubbling below the surface rises up. These two adversaries can’t keep their hands or their mouths off of one another.
Anything You Can Do is a romantic comedy that will have you in stitches because of the main couple and their antics. Lucas is a doll who is willing to sacrifice so much to make Daisy happy. Talk about a gentleman, with the exception of their bedroom fun. Steamy and hot lovemaking for these two! The joy in reading is for Daisy and Lucas’s teasing and bantering, which is wonderfully written. I had a smile the entire time I read, and you will too.
Anything You Can Do hits a homerun in the romantic comedy department. A must read! (Self-Published, $2.99)
