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.
4 out of 5 stars
There is one reason and ONE reason alone this book is getting 4 stars, and that reason is Lucas Thatcher.
Anything You Can Do is the story of Daisy Ryan, who grew up living next door to her archenemy, Lucas Thatcher. There is just one problem – Lucas doesn’t view Daisy as his archenemy – he’s in love with her. Everyone can see it too; everyone except for Daisy!
Daisy moves back home after completing her residency to take over the clinic of the local doctor. It turns out, Lucas has been hired to work at the clinic too. On her first day, Daisy gets into a bike accident and breaks her arm, which causes her and Lucas to have to see patients together.
There was a side story with Daisy’s mother, which was actually very cute, and the whole town tried very hard to get Daisy to realize that she belonged with Lucas.
There was another side story with Lucas that was so sweet and made him so much more lovable. I won’t spoil, because it’s so cute. I will say Daisy grew on me as the book went on, but it took a while, because she was pretty obnoxious.
This was a good read, and I would recommend.
