And thats a shame because she seems like a genuinely nice and interesting person after reading this. Writing quality drags the story down.

I had trouble finishing this book. You would expect a book titled secret confessions of a porn star would have some really juicy parts but I didn't find that true at all. Most od the beginning of the book is Monica complaining about how hard her childhood and early life was and the fact that it was always someone else to blame for her troubles. The entire book she has to try to justify being a porn star and making it seem legitimate. All the while she had the same drug problems and crappy relationships that typically plague porn stars. To make this worse she spends several chapters discussing her role in witchcraft and as a practicing witch. I could go on and on but it seems this book was more of therapy for Monica rather than an interesting read. I would not recommend this book.

Wow! This is one blunt, graphic, tell-it-like-it-is memoir. Monica is one smart, confident woman. She was born in Australia in 1978 to an abusive, pill-popping, alcohol addicted mother and absentee father. She grew up feeling unloved and unwanted. She has found success in a tough business and has achieved so much at a young age. She's brutally honest with everything she talks about, including her continued drug use. She seems to have a really positive attitude and one helluva sense of humor. This book was a true A-read. If, like me, complete honesty and openness is what you want in a memoir, this is a book you should read. I truly wish Monica the best and hope she continues to have a positive attitude.
