a Standalone Romantic Comedy
Puchase: Kindle (0.99) #KU
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 is hilariously funny and perfectly sexy. As a reader who doesn’t laugh out loud with RomCom’s all that often, Rachel (R.S. Grey) always manages to be one of the few authors who can consistently get me to do just that. Her blend of character realness and easy-to-digest humor create the perfect novel every time, and I fell in love with this story from the first page.
Her characters’ self-deprecating humor and unabashed honesty are always impossible to ignore and so very easy to relate to. Daisy’s strong competitive edge restricts her from seeing anything outside of it, and I loved her daily battles with Lucas. The two of them were irresistible whether they were pulling pranks, verbally sparring, or pushing each other’s buttons. But what made this novel truly stand out was the forbidden sexiness that popped up when their lifelong hatred of one another opened itself to something more. And I’ll tell you, the sexiness of this novel leaped from the pages. I wasn’t expecting it to grab me as it did, but Grey wrote the sweet, slow burn so well that it lit me on fire.
Grey managed to carry this story perfectly from beginning to end, giving these characters the journey through which they evolved effortlessly. The snarky, witty, and fun banter flowed seamlessly from character to consumption. It was an addictive read that was incredibly well-written and honest in every way. ANYTHING YOU CAN DO is fun and beautiful and everything one looks for in a great read.
♦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 include 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.
