Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey
Publication Date: February 2nd 2017
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.

For those of you who love romantic comedies that are over-the-top and dramatic, Anything You Can Do is perfect for you. It’s ridiculous and hilarious, and if you’re in the mood for a feel-good romance that will have you laughing, this will hit all the right buttons for you. It’s not quite my favorite R.S. Grey novel, but it’s very reminiscent of her previous rom-coms, so fans of her books will definitely enjoy this enemies-to-lovers romance!
In light of the sheer longevity of our rivalry, people always want to know what terrible even had transpired to precipitate it all. The truth is, we’ve always been this way. I am the Annie Oakley to his Frank Butler and I firmly believe that anything he can do, I can do better.
Daisy Bell and Lucas Thatcher have been competitors since the moment they were born (which coincidentally was on the same day). They are rivals, arch-nemeses, enemies, and every synonym in between. Their houses were next to each other, they competed against one another in high school, moved across the country away from each other for college, and now, post-medical school and at twenty-eight, Daisy and Lucas have returned home… to work at the same small-town family practice.
Both Lucas and Daisy hilariously try to sabotage the other and make the other look bad so that their boss, Dr. McCormick, will choose only one of them to take over the practice. They do some crazy, exasperating shenanigans as if they were high schoolers all over again. It’s entertaining to say the least, though it doesn’t exactly move the story forward. A majority of the book is spent fighting between Lucas and Daisy, and what I really wanted was for the romance to develop. It’s a fine line between love and hate, but love finally takes over once they get over their denial of it.
“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?”
There’s nothing crazy deep or emotional in this book – which was exactly what I expected and wanted. It’s pure enjoyable rom-com, the kind of read that will easy take your mind off reality for a short while and give you plenty of laughs and giggles. If you’re a fan of humor and enemies-to-lovers romances, you definitely need to give this book a try.
Quotes are taken from the arc and are subject to change in the final version.

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
