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.

4 stars

Daisy and Lucas have known each other for their entire lives. No one really knows what happened to turn them into nemeses but their lifelong war is well known. When they both return home, after eleven years apart, to take over the town medical practice, they're in for the battle of their lives. One that just might lead to love, that is, if they can stop trying to drive the each other crazy first.
I have read just about everything Grey has written and I've loved them all. I was so excited to get my hands on this book. I have to admit, I struggled with this one at the beginning. I had a difficult time connecting with Daisy. She was extremely hard to like at times. While I did enjoy the banter between the two and the tension it created, her desire to be the best, to win at all cost, was infuriating at times, especially when I could see that there was so much more going on. Eventually, we are shown a different side to Daisy and we see the internal conflict that she struggles with. This created a new dynamic between her and Lucas, one that was both entertaining and super sexy. Lucas could definitely give just as good as he got, but there was always something a little different about him and Daisy. I was intrigued to see how everything would play out.
Grey knows how to write romantic comedy. Her witty dialogue, laugh out loud antics, and beyond steamy scenes completely drew me in. While I didn't love some aspects of this story as much as usually do with her books, once I started reading, I was unable to put it down. For me, Lucas completely stole the show in this one. His emails had me teary and his rawness and vulnerability was refreshing. I couldn't get enough of him.


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.
