Publisher's Summary

A high-powered attorney dives into the politics of sex, the perils of desire, and why men and women treat each other the way they do.

Raney Moore has it all figured out. An ambitious young partner at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, she's got a dream job, a loving (and famous) husband, and amazing twin daughters. Her world is full, busy, perfectly scripted. Or so she thinks.

One sunny fall day, a bombshell phone call throws Raney's well-ordered existence into chaos, and in a fit of rage, she diabolically, hilariously burns everything down. Once the flames subside, she finds herself asking some difficult questions: Who am I? What just happened? Am I ever going to find my way back to normal? Assisted by enterprising paralegals, flirtatious clientele, one dear friend and an unforgettable therapist, Raney thinks the answers are close at hand, only to find life spiraling utterly out of control.

Uproarious, incisive, and poignant, Do This For Me introduces a brilliant, off-kilter heroine on a quest to understand sex, fight workplace inequality, and solve the mystery of herself.

Critic Reviews

"[A] deliciously over-the-top divorce tale." (EW.com)

"Kennedy tackles gender relations at home and in the workplace in this frank, compulsively readable examination of how one woman balances her exploration of her sexual identity with her career and motherhood." (Booklist)

 "An uproarious, sometimes salacious, and always entertaining quick summer read." (Library Journal)

Good premise but fell flat

this book was off to a good start but then took a very awkward turn in the middle. I'm sorry but I did not like this story at all. The characters became very annoying as the book progressed.

Definitely a book for those in their 30s

It’s okay. The plot is all over the place and the main character claims that she’s on a journey to “find herself” multiple times in the book but it’s not clear what exactly that is or why she’s doing what she’s doing. She makes some pretty dumb decisions and gets angry at others when they call her out on it. The main character, Rainy, is easy to fall in love with at the start of the book but by the ending I couldn’t stand her.
Overall, the book is all over the place and I wasn’t a fan. That being said, I’m only 22 and this book is clearly written for women in their late 30s/ early 40s, so it may be that I just can’t relate to it.

Understanding oneself at 37yo

Good narration. Main character was very unlikable, unless you can dig down and get passed her cut throat personality, mainly at work.
Held my interest, but was not into so much self analysis and finding oneself at 37yo.
