Couldn't put it down!

I'm a big historical fiction fan and rarely read biographies, but this book was quite fascinating. Jillina Lauren spins a story that draws in the reader from the beginning. It seems as if she is sitting beside you, casually recounting her life story. Who wouldn't love ...
I'm a big historical fiction fan and rarely read biographies, but this book was quite fascinating. Jillina Lauren spins a story that draws in the reader from the beginning. It seems as if she is sitting beside you, casually recounting her life story. Who wouldn't love to know what goes on in a modern-day harem! We get a glimpse of what happens when male Muslims are fantastically wealthy, and how their lifestyles affect the young women they so thoughtlessly, casually discard.

What a story!

It makes no sense

Why is the nook version higher than the paperback version. This makes no sense at all! The cost of publishing ebooks is so much less than for publishing traditional hardback and paperback books. Ridiculous, Barnes and Noble, just ridiculous!

    The book was good because I love bio's, but if i bought the book

    The book was good because I love bio's, but if i bought the book purely for the name of it (my life in a harem) i would be disappointed. Literally half the book isnt even about her life in a harem, i think she should have written this book 15 years before she did when she still remembered what went on in Brunei.

    I was disappointed in this book. It was suggested for a book club read and it was all I could do to finish it.

    The writing was not the best or the story was not written well, I'm not sure what the problem was but I was glad to be done with it.

    An OK Read, But Nothing Wonderful

    I read this book after seeing an MSN article about the author. The book was interesting, certaintly the world of strippers, escorts, and harems was not one I was familiar with, but it wasn't all that engaging. For the most part I found the narrator to be whiny and annoying and I didn't especially care what happened to her.
