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.
This book!! You can never go wrong if you go to R.S. Grey for romantic comedy. This book had me dying laughing from beginning to end. But it was also incredibly sweet. I mean those Lucas e-mails! I could read a whole book of just Lucas’ e-mails. He’s just perfect! The only problem I had with the e-mails was that they really left me reeling and hoping for chapters in Lucas’ POV. I just wanted to get into his head more and more.
But, I’m getting off track, (which only goes to show how in love I am with those emails). Ok, I’m done, I promise, back to the book!
This is an enemies to lovers story. Lucas and Daisy have known each other since the moment they were born and they have been competing ever since. Daisy has never known anything other than competing with Lucas. When they both come back to their hometown after graduating medical school, it’s easy for Daisy to fall back into the competition.
Daisy’s kind of clueless and tends to come across younger than she is but I love that about her. Well, the clueless part will drive you a bit crazy, but the part where she lives with her mom and drives her bike to work is just kind of adorable. But like, she’s so blind when it comes to Lucas. He’s precious and she’s just blind. She doesn’t even open her eyes until everything is laid out in front of her and it’s kind of like, really? How didn’t you see this?
I did love their fights and mind games though so I’m not really complaining. This book is all kinds of hilarious with all the craziness these two get into.
At first I felt some type of way about how quickly things come together in the end but five minutes later I was just so happy they weren’t wasting time anymore. I loved this book! It’s amazing and all you want from R.S. Grey.
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.
