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.

5 Stars!!

There’s no secret I love this author. Her storytelling, her witty banter, her engaging adorable characters are fantastic in my opinion. She just do it for me! Once again, she delivered an unputdownable story that sucked me in from the very beginning. If you love romantic comedies as much as me, you don’t want to miss this one. Trust me on this! I enjoyed every single romcom I’ve read by this author, but 'Anything You Can Do' was my favorite so far. If you’re a fan of enemies to lovers s

"Can you kill someone with a kiss? I think that’s what he’s doing—slaying me with his mouth."

That was DELECTABLE. Delectable and steamy and full of the sweetest, most delightful feels. Lord, my heart. I can safely say that Anything You Can Do is my most FAVORITE R.S. Grey read to date. It took my breath away. I am still trying to gather words in an attempt to express myself here. It's hard. I was so swept up by these characters. They were funny and charming, and the dialogue was so witty

He tastes like a guilty pleasure, one that will undoubtedly sour once I'm alone again. We are enemies. Foes. And yet when Lucas takes my waist in his large hands and rolls his hips with mine, I feel like we're working together to build something. Mutually assured destruction.

”A rivalry like ours sustains itself by constantly evolving.”

What a cleverly written frenemies story R.S. Grey definitely has a wicked sense of humor. If you’re a fan of enemies to lover’s stories you must meet Daisy Bell and Lucas Thatcher. These two have been battling it out since the first grade. Now these two doctors find themselves back in their hometown hoping to wedge out the other for the local medical practice.

Oh well, there is a reason I love R.S. Grey.

Anything You Can Do was one of her best works! A light-hearted, uplifting, feel-good, enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy to make you believe in love and sunshine and soulmates! Not to mention that Doctor Mc. Dreamy, aka Lucas Thatcher, looks like Henry Cavill.

I'm such a goner.

❝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?❞

Thank you so much to Rachel (R.S. Grey) for sending me an ARC to review! <3

This was a book that I got to read for free while I was trying out the old Amazon Prime for a few months, and it turned out to be a really cute story! I'm so glad I found it before I canceled my membership.
Oh my god. I can't be the only one who thinks their tv selection is a NIGHTMARE to navigate. And if they think I'm paying $1.99 to watch an episode of Season 4 Spongebob or some such nonsense, they are out of their freaking minds!
Ok, ok, ok. back to the book!

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

Anything You Can Do is a hot, hilarious, and addictive enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy about childhood rivals, Daisy Bell and Lucas Thatcher. After years in college, med school, and residency, Daisy is back in Hamilton, Texas, to take over the only family practice in town. She’s worked hard to be where she is, and now that she’ll soon take over Dr. McCormick’s family practice, nothing will get in the way of that. Right before she starts her practice, her bes

If you are in the mood for a cute and cheesy romance. Put on your jammies, grab some chocolate and your snuggie, and settle in for this one. You will definitely smile as you read.

Who the hell watches television when there are books to be read?

It's the enemies-to-lovers trope, and it's a whole lot of fun.

We have the narration of Daisy, who has been in competition with the boy next door, Lucas, all of their lives. They are a nightmare for everyone around them. They made a school counselor quit her

I'm disappointed. The only reason I read this was because I've read so many reviews saying it's like The Hating Game and I adore this book. But no, it's really not like the The Hating Game, at least for me. The only similarity is that it's an enemies-to-lovers book.

One word that perfectly describes the book for me: Meh.

The book was easy and fast to read. This is my first R.S. Grey book and I quite enjoyed her writing. I expected to laugh out loud while reading this book, but I literally laughed

I absolutely love a book that is easy to read, full of laughs, sweet, and flows so smoothly. This story is beautiful. A love that was hidden under all the competition and all the chaos of growing up together from the day you were born. Lucas & Daisy have a unique competitive relationship that turns into a lifetime love.

“I know your brother—probably much better than you do. We will never get along. 11 years apart is nothing. It has changed nothing. If anything, it’s given our animosity time to mature like a fine wine—or better yet, a stinky cheese.”

Oh Daisy. Sweet, clueless Daisy.

This was a solid hate-to-love romance with a likable, often times hilarious female MC, and a non-douchey male lead who was made even more endearing via the small snippets of his perspective.

Definitely a good rec for fans of The Hating Game.
A delightful enemies-to-lovers gem. Anything You Can Do is sure to yield continuous smiles with R.S. Grey’s cleverness, a heroine with a zany shrewdness and a very worthy adversary you’ll swoon over.

Lucas Thatcher and Daisy Bell have been competing since day one. That’s right, they were adversaries in anything and everything since the day they were born until they left to college on opposite sides of the country. But now they’re back in their home town and the stakes are higher as they’r

I am usually not a big fan of enemies to lovers stories, so I was surprised how much I really liked this one. As long as you go into this book knowing it’s a RomCom and not to expect any angst, you should be good to go.

The story is told mostly in Daisy’s POV. I laughed at her OTT inner dialogue and her diabolical plot to take down her enemy for life, Lucas Thatcher. Their banter was funny and you do get a few (not enough for me) chapters from Lucas’s POV which helps you figure out how he truly f

Daisy Bell grew up in the small town of Hamilton, Texas. After many years away she moves back home to follow her dream of having her own private practice. Daisy has worked hard to become the best doctor she can be, and now that the local Dr. McCormick is planning to retire soon, she hopes to take over his practice. He owns the only family practice in town.

I picked this up because it was compared to The Hating Game, and after my reread of that book, I was desperate for more. Unfortunately, this just missed the mark for me (although I understand why it gets that comparison).

They follow along similar lines, in both books the main characters intensely dislike the other and often battle it out with petty little games and private competition. The difference is, in the Hating Game, every little snipe and banter was hilarious
