Overview


“Attractive, professional, well-spoken, well-dressed 35-year-old woman seeks sugar daddy. I live in Darlinghurst on a 17th floor unit with fantastic skyline views to the harbor. The unit also features very discreet and secure undercover guest parking. I am looking for exclusivity so will (theoretically) be available to you 24 x 7. I am single and don't have any children. I am also a fabulous cook and can provide gourmet meals should you require them. I am a qualified psychologist so I make an excellent listener, and I have a great love of conversation. I have also worked for many years in public relations so am a clever, charming companion in just about any situation. I love sex. I will require a generous weekly allowance in return for all of the above.”

Holly Hill (pseudonym) gave up her job at the behest of her wealthy boyfriend—and then found herself dumped and penniless. After spending six weeks in bed pining for her lost love, she was encouraged by a friend to be "open-minded" about her career choices—and ended up placing an online ad for a sugar daddy. She received an almost overwhelming response from all sorts of men, but most of them were married men whose wives had lost interest in sex. As Holly interviewed the men and settled on a candidate, she decided to record what happened next. Those almost-daily observations became a journal documenting Holly's extraordinary experiences—not just the men she meets, but the things she finds out about marriages, in particular, and what men need from them. Sugarbabe is her real-life account of the emails, meetings, employment of and interactions with the applicants for the role, and the five men she eventually chooses (not all at the same time!). It is by turns funny, enlightening, challenging and thought-provoking.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Pseudonym of a psychologist living in Sydney, Australia, Hill recounts her picaresque adventures trying to snag a "dick" to support her champagne lifestyle and high mortgage. Attractive, lusty, nearing 40, although advertising her age as 35, Hill hoped to duplicate a winning six-month relationship with John, a married "zillionaire" genius with two children, who had urged her to quit her job as in order to be available full-time for him while he paid lavishly for her living expenses, before unceremoniously dumping her. Developing a "Mistress Plan," she sends out a cleverly worded Internet ad asking for ,000 per week in return for exclusive entertaining in her own apartment (cooking, conversation, sex); the responses roll in, mostly from middle-aged, hardworking types in lonely marriages, and she selects three men: American Dick, French-Algerian Jacques, and Chinese Tom. Although Hill exalts in her feminist sense of empowerment, the insecurity proves too punishing, and she decides that finding true love is the answer. In workmanlike prose, she dishes the necessary nuts and bolts and the requisite sex scenes, concluding with a bit of banal wisdom on marital fidelity. (July)

    Really enjoyed this book

    I really enjoyed this book. This is an enlightening book and it really makes you think of sex differently. I am not saying you have to agree with her, but you will find yourself thinking about things a little differently. You can not take this book seriously and get mad or frusterated about things. You need to remember that this is an insightful book, looking at her life from HER point of view. Your opinion will probably differ. If you don't want her opinion and your not open minded don't read the book, you probably won't enjoy it.

    It's a great light read, with some intresting insights. I would recommend this, and have to friends.

    Failed to Live Up to Expectations

    Unfortunately, the author is not nearly as interesting or perceptive as she thinks she is. Mediocre writing and banal insights presented as keen perspicuity. Jillian Lauren's "Some Girls" is a much better-written and enjoyable read.
