I couldn't get past the first few pages. The language of the main character drove me nuts... too many exclamation points and sentences ending as questions.

the story seemed interesting, I just couldn't get past the language.

This book is okay. Interesting enough that I could continue to read if I have time but easily able to put it down. Fun little insights into the industry and definitely more chicklit than erotic. If you miss this one, you're not missing much. I probably won't read Diary of a Married Call Girl.

I had trouble staying interested with this book. I wanted to like it but it just seemed to ramble on and on and I never really got a feel for the characters. It was like reading a diary that you found on the street and you have no idea who anyone is. Nor really care.

I have always been intrigued by the world of high price call girls. Especially in the light of the recent Spitzer scandal, this was a perfect read. Tracy Quan keeps the reader engaged the whole time, laughing, anxious and more. Love it and would recommend it to everyone.

Really not what I was expecting. I was hoping for better. It's not a bad book, it's just really not that great either. I have always been fascinated by prostitution and I thought this book would be a great, titillating read. It fell flat in my opinion. Nancy doesn't impress me and her friends leave a lot to be desired.

I just could not get into this book. Two of the characters' names sounded very similar, which was confusing, and the protagonist didn't seem very likeable. I wanted to like this book but can't get into it.

This book is as brainless as "Sex and the City." I certainly wish that I didn't get the book from paperbackswap, I could have checked it out from the library. The novel is written by a former call girl. The main character, Nancy, has a finace that knows nothing of her being a call girl. I find that repulsive. She sleeps with loads of men for money while at the same time pretends to be true to her fiance. I am not speaking against the occupation of a call girl so much as to her keeping it a secret from her fiance.

Very fun, easy, beach read.
