Prim, responsible Katie Collins has just taken on a whopper of an assignment for her rich, controlling, egomaniacal boss--get his plump and plain eccentric daughter down the aisle with a suitable man from Philadelphia's snooty upper crust.
Too bad for Katie that "Cinderella" vamoosed before her would-be fairy godmother and hunky bodyguard knew what was happening. Now Katie has to return to her Texas roots, which she's avoided for a decade, to try and convince the skittish Wilhelmina to come home away from the hog farmer she's fallen in love with! And to top it all off, she has to travel with the security firm owner cum temporary bodyguard, Michael Wingate, a man she is trying desperately hard not to be attracted to. A man who is running just as hard from his history as she is from hers.
What worked for me:
I liked the characters and the storyline. But I particularly liked the fact that Wilhelmina's story was given so much attention. (I just wish I'd gotten to know her lover Doug better.)
I suspect Ms. Banks is a fan of Jennifer Crusie, but instead of her romantic comedy featuring a weird looking dog, this time we get an ugly cat.
Size-wise Katie was slender, but trying to hide her prettiness under plain clothes and a severe hairdo. Wilhelmina was plump and a bit plain, but in the eyes of her love she was nothing short of a goddess.
What didn't work for me:
At times the plotline felt a bit far-fetched, but for the most part it was a lot of fun.
There were a few paragraphs that didn't feel as polished as the rest of the story. There were also some mid-scene point of view switches that left me a bit confused.
"Some Girls Do" was a fun, fast read. A good choice for the bubble bath.
Warning: This book has some steamy moments and coarse words within its pages.
