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.

 

Once again, I am going to be in the minority with this book.  I wanted to love this book so much.  I really did.

Let me preface this first by saying I am huge R.S. Grey fan.  I love her books and I really enjoy her writing.  This is my first (and hopefully only) book that I just couldn’t get into.  I am huge enemies to lovers, when the story is told well.

Daisy and Lucas have grown up together and have always been competitive with another one.  Trying to outdo the other.  They both go off to college and med school and Daisy is able to avoid him during all that time, even with return trips home.  Now Daisy is moving back home with the hopes of taking over the local family practice.  Then she learns that Lucas is also going to be working there too.  And so beings that competition as adults – well at least for Daisy it’s a competition.

I think Lucas was the only one of the two who actually grew up.  Daisy just irked me with her high school antics.  I truly wanted to slap her upside head quite a lot.  Lucas was beyond amazing and definitely have more patience than anyone I know.

You can sense the tension and friction between them but also the attraction too.  I did love the hate fucking but I had a hard time with HEA for these two.  It just seemed like all of sudden Daisy pulled her head out of her ass and realized she was 28 and not 18.  And that high school dance scene – I won’t even go there. It just proves my point of her not acting her age. 

Overall, it was just an ok book for me.  I most likely won’t remember this story in a few months and I hate that.  I love R.S. and will continue to read her books.  This book just wasn’t for me.

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.
