In England, these kind of sex-and-glamour-soaked door-stoppers are dubbed ”bonkbusters,” and indeed, there is much bonking in Daddy’s Girls‘ 470 pages. The girls of the title, four gorgeous blue-blooded sisters ranging from their mid-20s to late 30s, pursue men and careers with voracious, often exhausting energy, and tangle with their father, a baron who’s so vindictive and awful he nearly defies personhood. There’s plenty of juice in the romantic crossings and familial double-dealings, but Tasmina Perry doesn’t know when to quit squeezing the fruit. The story lines eventually devolve into a pulpy mess.
