Review: Some Girls Do by Amy Andrews (Outback Heat #1)


Note: This ARC was provided by Tule Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When thirty-two-year-old Cooper Grainger agrees to watch over his best friend's nineteen-year-old sister Lacey Weston while she's in Brisbane studying fashion design, it doesn't take long for him to realize that Lacey is the very same girl he slept with a week ago while giving him the name Tracey and claiming she was twenty-four. Two and a half years later, Lacey's homesickness gets the better of her and Coop drives her back to Jumbuck Springs, but in order to get her overprotective brothers to agree to let her stay and defer her studies, Lacey announces she's pregnant. Bucking to his need to protect Lacey, Coop tells everyone that he's the father. Now, they're stuck living together before Lacey clarifies things with her family, but being in such close proximity to each other forces them to deal with the attraction that never went away.

Some Girls Do is the first book in the Outback Heat series about four siblings from Jumbuck Springs, Australia from bestselling author Amy Andrews. This series starter has the youngest and only girl in the Weston brood, Lacey, falling for her oldest brother's best friend, Cooper Grainger. This was an entertaining take on the falling-for-your-best-friend's-sibling trope, especially with the age difference being the widest gap I've come across in recent memory. There were moments that I couldn't but think that Lacey was being rather selfish and reckless, not taking into consideration the consequences of her actions, especially since poor Coop ended up swooping in and saving her on more than one occasion. Of course, the fact that she's only twenty-one plays a part in her lack of maturity, but she does grow on you.

Aside from Coop and Lacey's love story, the book introduces readers to the rest of the Weston family: Ethan, Marcus, and Jarrod. I know that Ethan's the oldest and Lacey's the youngest, but I'm not sure whose older between Marcus and Jarrod. Among the three brothers, Ethan was easily the most memorable one because of his connection to Coop. It's pretty clear that there's something simmering between him and his close friend Jemima Jane "JJ" Ericson, so I'm definitely looking forward to reading their story, which is slated to be the fourth and final release in the series. This is shaping up to be a fun series, especially with the siblings having seemingly very different personalities, and thankfully, we don't have long to wait for the next three releases! Thank you, Tule Publishing! Some Girls Do gets four stars. ♥
