READ AND REVIEW
SOME GIRLS DO (OUTBACK HEAT #1) BY AMY ANDREWS
Release Date: September 22, 2015
Fashion student Lacey Weston is desperate to leave the city and go home to Jumbuck Springs. Her three older brothers are adamant she’s not. They made a death bed promise to their mother that Lacey would stay the distance at design school and Ethan, the oldest, takes this responsibility very seriously. But Lacey is deeply homesick and determined not to be dissuaded again. She’s also impulsive enough to try anything - even faking a pregnancy.
Ex-cop turned mechanic, Cooper Grainger - one of Ethan’s oldest friends - agrees to watch out for Lacey in the city even though he has a history with her he’d rather forget. How hard could it be, right? But a couple of years later, Coop is over pulling Lacey out of scrapes and cleaning up her messes as she tries to outrun her grief and sense of dislocation. He takes her back to Jumbuck Springs so she can persuade her brothers to let her come home. But things don’t go according to plan. Before Coop knows it Lacey’s pregnant and he’s putting his hand up as the fake baby daddy, filling in for the town mechanic and moving in with her at the local pub.
Lacey is thrilled to have won a reprieve but nothing about the situation sits well with Coop. Least of all having sweet little Lacey Weston as his new roomie…

Some Girls Do by Amy Andrews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
For Lacey the last couple years of her life has been full of upheaval. The loss of her mother when she needs her most has left her spiraling out of control. Her emotions are all over the place, her decisions are proving risking and the people she is supposed to be apple to count on have turned that back on her. In her mind she is on her own. Coop sees a kindred spirit in the tortured young woman with the bad attitude. He has been dealing with a number of crisis in his own life. Lacey brings out his protective instincts. Among other things. A lost of control, a surprise revelation and the differences in their ages are obstacles he can't ignore. Facing fears, coping with loss and growing up are all explored within this novel. I received an ARC of Some Girls Do by Amy Andrews in exchange for an honest review. What I took from this story is change whether good or bad is an inevitable learning experience.
