Finished this in one sitting - I only intended to read the first couple of chapters before bed! A very honest account of what makes a wife and mum turn to escorting to earn a living. It must have been a difficult to write so honestly about the sex trade, but empathy is displayed throughout. A fantastic page-turner.

 Refreshingly honest

I really enjoyed this book and, like the others who have reviewed, couldn't put it down. That said however, I found one of the early chapters particularly disturbing and found it difficult to sleep - that'll teach me for reading in bed!

I thought this book was really honest and frank. I agree with the other reviews that it's not seedy or sordid and I think Ms Annandale is really brave for using putting her experiences down in black & white for others to share.

I really enjoyed this book - I couldn't put it down - just shows that some people will do what ever it takes to keep their head above water & look after there family, not a seedy or sordid story just honest, all though a couple of her clients had some strange ideas!!

 Gripping - Just can't put it down.

This book is definately a good read. It goes deeply into the life of a woman who is an incredibly good mother and just wants to make ends meet in a family that she never had while growing up. It goes into intense detail about her double life as an exscort and as a mother, and how she manages to juggle the two demanding jobs. There are also factors in her life that could quite simply drive her over the edge, but she manages to keep stable and together, for the sake of her family.

Definately worth buying, it is a very good read.
