Some Girls Do is a rollicking good read - and at various parts of the story that's 'rollicking' with a decidedly erotic twist. It is also incredibly funny - one episode early in the book had me laughing so hard I must have frightened the neigbours. There are sombre poignant passages as well - but it is never morose or gratuitous in the grief/angst experienced by the two main characters. The heroine, Claire, is a 'nice girl' - but her blog alter-ego 'NiceGirl' is a very different proposition - and in trying to live up to her blog persona, Claire embarks on an adventure that will change her life - and the life of another person as well. Luca is a magnetic hero - and his back story is one with great resonance in Ireland where the plight of Romanian orphans touched many hearts. There are various strands to this book - and a wonderful array of characters both major and minor; all to be delighted in and enjoyed. I read the book in about 3 nights (and it kept me up late on every one!) - and was reluctant to put it down even while realising I'd read the same sentence three times (at 1 a.m. !) and I needed to get some sleep. Thoroughly recommended .

What a great fun read this book was, it had me laughing out loud for the most part, even to the point of waking up my hubby while reading it in bed. A quite down to earth read with great characters, such as Claire’s friend that runs a Mum's advice blog even though she has no children, that are well developed, set in Dublin which is a great favourite for a book setting for me.
Claire has got herself into quite a predicament through her online blog bragging of her sexual exploits with men that are pure fantasy and indulging in an online public Twitter flirt fest under her pseudonym of NiceGirl with Mark a London-based publisher. Each chapter opens with a delivery from her blog which are all hilarious far fetched stories. When Mark tells her he is coming to Dublin to meet her with a book offer and makes it clear he also wants to take the online flirting further Claire goes into a panic as she actually has almost no sexual experience.
She turns to Luca, a struggling artist she has only recently met to help teach her to live up to Mark’s expectations of NiceGirl. Luca is an emotionally cut off figure that Claire has misconceived opinions of as him being a bit of a manwhore. And the story the author chose for Luca is heartbreaking and original, I honestly cannot recall reading of anything similar.
What ensues is a mix of funny situations between the two as we along with Claire discover the complexity of Luca and his life that bring some of the balance to this story. I loved Luca and at times I just wanted to hug him as his story came to light. Both Claire and Luca are determined they can keep to the arrangement between them without emotions getting in the way because Claire is only doing this all for Mark anyway right. But things are never that simple, can they really embark on a sexual relationship and remain detached?
A brilliant read and my first by this author that I will definitely be reading more from.

“He smiled at her. ‘There, that wasn’t so hard, was it?’ He kissed her forehead. ‘And the best thing about vocalizing is that it’s so rewarding.’ A warm hand slid up under her top to cup her breast as he leant in to kiss her again. ‘Ask and you shall receive.’”

4 stars, this book was a super cute fun read. The story seemed to flow really well and the characters were fun to get to know.

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?

Claire is a quiet girl, working in a bookstore and while working she runs an internet blog called Nicegirl. Her online persona is the complete opposite of her personality. While writing on her blog she talks about all her sexual exploits, that are in fact untrue, she speaks with Mark a London based publisher. After talking things lead to her being offered a book deal. With this information Claire now realizes the needs to start doing serious research to back up her online personality. In comes Luca, who has absolutely no problem helping Claire out with her problem.

I loved reading this novel. This was the first time I have read a book from Ms. Murphy, and she will be on my list to read. Throughout this novel you will meet a woman,Claire, who is shy when it comes to men and sex. She is currently working in a bookstore, working on writing a novel, writing an anonymous blog that she makes up, and living with her mother who needs a lot of help when it comes to her health. Shortly after the novel starts and we learn about the Main character, we are introduced to the two male characters that are throughout the book. The first one, Luca, is just a friend through Clair's friend who likes to sex around. The second is MArk, a man who is already a 'friend' of hers that she knows through her blog. They frequently flirt and then meet when he offers her a book deal based on her 'Nice Girl' sex (that she makes up) blog. Claire needs to act like her 'NiceGirl' character, so she goes to Luca and asks him to teach her the sexiness and knowhow that she writes about. Luca's main 'rule' is to not expect to be his girlfriend (she has no desire for it since she likes Mark), since he isn't into relationships.
As the novel progresses, you like both men and wonder, 'which one will Claire be with at the end'. I am tired of reading about how people fall in love the minute they see each other, I was happy to see Love actually coming around and developing.
The only thing that I find is lacking in the book is what happens at the very end. Is her life going to stay the same with her brothers and their Wives (especially the one that always insults her and is also trying to gain a book deal), how will her family react to finding out about her NiceGirl character, and so many others questions for her and the men. I think i am looking for a 'sequel' maybe one that is based on her best friend and gets to squish in Claire's present life :)
