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.
Lucas and Daisy have known each other their entire lives. Literally. They were born on the same day, grew up in the houses next to each other, and have had a feud ongoing ever since. The entire town knows of their competitive hatred for each other, and are shocked to find out that Daisy and Lucas, unbeknownst to them, will be working together at the same family doctor’s office in their small town.
After not seeing each other since high school, having gone to different colleges and avoided each other at all costs, you would think these two would be okay working together as adults. Right? Wrong!! The tension is still there! These two immediately start off pranking each other and trying to one-up the other. It’s hilariously funny to see the lengths these two will go to to “win” in their own eyes.
I adore the enemies-to-lovers trope, and this was definitely one of my faves! I loved seeing the hatred these two shared for each other turn into all kinds of confusing feelings, making them do the silliest things. And when it starts to heat up, it really does HEAT UP! Holy sparks!
“Can you kill someone with a kiss? I think that’s what he’s doing — slaying me with his mouth.”
If you haven’t heard me rave about R.S. Grey yet, you probably don’t know me. She’s one of my newest favorite authors! I read everything this talented woman puts out, and I love it all!! This is definitely one of my faves of hers, right up there with the Summer Games series. A sexy, tension-filled, fun and funny, addicting read that you won’t want to miss!
