Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey – Jenn’s Review

WHY I READ IT

I love a good enemies to lovers story, and Grey’s books always resonate with me.

WHAT I RATED IT

WHAT IT’S ABOUT

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.

JENN’S REVIEW

When I first read the blurb for Grey’s upcoming release, I knew this was the book for me. I love the enemies to lovers trope, but especially when one of the parties is actually in love with the other.

“Roses are red.
Daisy is you.
I heard you came back,
and I did too.”

Lucas Thatcher and Daisy Bell have spent their entire lives trying to best each other. So, when they both return home from attending medical school on opposite coasts, naturally, they both want to take over the local family practice. Just like old times, Lucas and Daisy are back together, competing to win. But this time, it’s not just a business at stake. Unbeknownst to Daisy, Lucas is making a play for so much more.

Grey is a master of Romantic Comedy. There are very few authors out there that do it as well as she does. I was smiling from page one, and I just like that, knew I was in for a real treat. The story is told primarily from Daisy’s POV, but we do get a bit from Lucas in the most interesting way. It was quite the twist, and I felt it added so much depth to the story. I loved that Grey didn’t spend a ton of time rehashing the Lucas-Daisy war, but instead gave us all the hilarious highlights. Watching these two try to interact daily, in a professional capacity was incredibly amusing. The banter was witty, and I just loved all their comebacks. Every time one of them opened their mouths, I smiled. I enjoyed watching Daisy come to terms with these feelings she was having for Lucas. It was a lot easier to try and best him, than stop herself from falling in love with her mortal enemy. These are two strong, driven, intelligent characters. Their equality was a real positive for me.
A supreme supporting cast rounded out what I think is Grey’s best book yet. Anything You Can Do had it all… exceptional writing, characters you love, and a flawless story you can’t help but read cover to cover in one sitting.

“It was never about the war and it was never about beating you. I just wanted to have you any way I could.”
