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. (Goodreads)
The book gets better as you read
So remember how Dating You Hating You was supposed to be the next Hating Game, and I said it wasn’t really the same. Well, this book is the same. Like VERY similar. Which means I should have loved it, but well…
So let me start out with the characters. Daisy really annoyed me, like a lot. She was so immature. I wondered at the beginning of the book how anyone liked her quite honestly. I almost stopped reading because of her. Lucas, on the other hand, seemed great. You get a very small taste from his perspective and I really wish there had been more. Of the two he seemed much more reasonable.
About halfway maybe a little further Daisy stops being a vindictive child and at that point, I really started to like the book more. It was a cute romance that was an extremely quick read. It was by no means the best book I’ve ever read, but far from the worst as well.
