Blurb: Claire Kennedy is NiceGirl, the anonymous author of steamy online blog 'Scenes of a Sexual Nature'. An internet sensation, she attracts the attention of Mark Bell, a hot London publisher. But when it becomes clear that Mark is interested in more than just a book deal, Claire has to act fast. Because little does Mark know that NiceGirl is a lot more experienced in the bedroom than real-life Claire Kennedy.


Mark is offering Claire the life she's always dreamed of - a steady relationship, the literary world of London and a posh Highgate apartment.


But when Claire hires the services of struggling artist and commitment-phobe Luca to brush up on her sex skills, things get more complicated...Great sex, friendship AND love ... can't a girl have it all?

Review: So i'd heard a lot about this book most saying, basically it was bursting with amazing sex scenes and was far to hot to handle. One definitely not to be read in public. So like you would be I was very intrigued.

Well, I wouldn't say I was disappointed with it, far from in fact, but I did think the book has a hell of a lot more depth than being basically labeled as an eye popping bonk buster. Yes there is plenty of sex in it and yes for some it may be a bit 'ooeer' but in my opinion it was a lot more.


Some Girls Do is an endearing tale full of love on every level. The plot is thick and full of little twists that have you glued to the pages and you feeling every emotion available under the sun. I giggled, I gasped, I shook my head in disgust, I nearly cried and you all know how much of a hard hearted cow I am. The characters are a mixture of everything, but are all totally fabulous in their own right. It really is a very very good read.


Being the first book I have read by Clodagh Murphy and the warmth and dignity in her writing won me over. This is a book that I'll be enjoying time and time again. I will also be keeping my eye out for her next release and will be investing in more of her work. 


Full with Phone Sex that brings tears to your eyes with laughter, a friendship blossoming, a sex fiend blogger, what more could you possibly want?

An all round wonderful book.
