Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This book is quite provocative, but it is with reason and purpose.
Thru the eyes of the main character (a prostitute for celebrities) the reader is exposed to the darkest thoughts of those with money, power, fame and greed. What does it really mean to "sell yourself"?
The writing flows very smoothly and makes you second guess how you view those who strive for 15 minutes of fame and reality tv superstardom.
It's scandalous, entertaining, and thought provoking."
- Kate (Amazon)

- "A book with interesting characters, and a story that keeps you wanting more.[...]" - Miguel P. Aguilera

- "This story was fluid and easy to follow. It forces us into the point of view of a unique and dynamic character. It is interesting, thought provoking, and definitely worth the read!" - Joe Schaefer
