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 was my first R.S. Grey novel, and unfortunately I wasn’t that impressed. I had really high expectations going into this book because of all the positive feedback I was seeing online, but in the end I was disappointed.
The storyline and characters were all right, but I found it difficult to like and relate to Daisy and Lucas. Daisy was immature, flighty, and a bit selfish. I definitely didn’t think she acted like a professional twenty-eight-year-old doctor should. Lucas was a lot better and I actually liked him more than Daisy. I wished more of the story had been told from his POV instead of just a few short chapters here and there. The rivalry and fighting between Daisy and Lucas since they were young children didn’t make a lot of sense either. There was no real purpose for it, and to be honest I found their behavior – namely Daisy’s – quite annoying. I thought the flow of the story was a little choppy and sporadic as well, and I didn’t think the humor in the book was all that funny. I laughed maybe once or twice, and that was it. The last few chapters were better and I didn’t mind how it ended, but it still left me slightly unsatisfied.
I hate writing negative reviews, and I mean absolutely no offense to the author, but I just didn’t enjoy reading Daisy and Lucas’s story very much.

About the Author
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.
