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.
Over the years, I have grown to love R.S. Grey’s writing and humor. While I haven’t read all of her published work, it is safe to say that she has become one of my favorite contemporary romance authors and anything she comes out with will automatically be added to my TBR.
Daisy Bell and Lucas Thatcher have been sworn enemies ever since they were born merely 58 minutes apart. They grew up competing against one another, proving to be the better one. Their battle of one-upping the other continued until they both went away to attend med school. Now, 11 years later, they are back home. To work. At the only family hospital at Hamilton, Texas. First, it was about grades, now it’s about sole ownership of the practice.
That shouldn’t be a problem though, right? Because anything he can do, she can do better.
“Roses are red, Daisy is you, I heard you came back, and I did too.”
Daisy has a plan. She’s going to sabotage Lucas’ career by sending him out of the country so that she can finally be at peace. It’s been so long, she doesn’t even remember why they’re
fighting, to begin with. But after that one hot kiss in the hallway, and their chemistry sizzling between them, all she can think about is how to get his lips back on hers.
“Lucas’ lips are like a sleeve of Oreos: you know you shouldn’t have them at all, but you can’t stop with just one taste.”
Lucas Thatcher is one sexy, hot as fuck doctor, who oozes confidence and is too smart for his own good. Although the story is mainly told in Daisy’s POV, we do have a few chapters from Lucas’ that brings out a sweet and vulnerable side to him that I just love! He is just too adorable for me to handle!
“It was never about the war and it was never about beating you. I just wanted to have you any way I could.”
The whole book was one long ass foreplay and I ate it up! The hilarious antics of these childhood rivals had me laughing until my eyes teared up. R.S. Grey’s effortless humor coupled with their witty banter and sexual tension makes this quite an enjoyable read.
“He’s met someone,” she said during one of our Skype calls in my second year of medical school.
“I think he really likes her.”
“Watch out for a lobotomy scar or the mark of the devil. It might be tucked beneath her hair.”
“They’re coming home at Christmas so he can introduce her to our parents.”
“Hold a mirror up to her and see if she has a reflection.”
Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey is a fun enemy to lovers romance that shows how thin the line between love and hate is and it blurs easily. I love both the main characters, I think they balance each other out perfectly, not to mention their amazing chemistry that makes everything better.
“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?”
Until then keep reading and be awesome! xx
