Sugarbabe is an intriguing story about a professional woman who goes broke and makes a concious decision to be a high end prostitute. Listening was something like watching a train wreck-I winced the whole way through but couldn't stop listening. The author accidentally discovers that she makes a great mistress and decides she may as well capitalize on her talents. The only thing that makes the book worthwhile is the the fascinating and diverse cast of characters that she takes on as her "customers". Listening felt like indulging a guilty pleasure and ultimately left me unsatisfied-junk food in a book. This book will not make you a better person for reading it. I did appreciate that the narrator was American even though the author was Australian, as those narrations can be more difficult to listen to (unless you are Australian). I wasn't so thrilled with her pornographic descriptions of her sexual adventures which were gratuitous in some cases and robbed the story of any integrity it could have had. I also found the narration to be too syrupy-which fits well with the name of the book, but does not make it easy to listen to.
Overall, I would say this is a good listen if you happen to be interested in the idea of being a high paid prostitute or if you have absolutely nothing else to do. Otherwise, it is just extra, empty calories.

deciding to listen to such a book. started off with a raspy smokers voice which was kinda hard to follow. but I'm glad it wasn't exactly the person that wrote the book. so I listen and some how it became much easier to listen too.... very entertaining I enjoy the insiders version
