“A moralizing journey of self discovery…David sets up interesting parallels between selling your soul and selling your body.”
–Publishers Weekly

“David presents a glitzy, glamorous, gossipy novel.”
–Booklist

“On the heels of Spitzer-gate comes Anna David’s new novel about the lives of the prostitutes and kept women of rich and powerful men. David proves she’s not only good but lucky, as her tomes are proving timely.”
L.A. Confidential

“Trying to pick sides is all part of the fun, as is asking yourself: What would you do to get what you want?…I practically devoured this…”
Nerve

Anna David turns her reporter’s eye for detail toward Tinseltown’s seedy underbelly yet again, pulling off what The New York Post calls her ability to “eloquently and humorously unveil what could be a new subgenre: Chick Lit With a Message.”

Tired of gathering banal quotes from the B-list on the sidelines of the red carpet, Emma Swanson publicly yearns for a more substantial career but privately dreams of a hotshot boyfriend to transport her into the beating heart of the Hollywood scene. Instead, she meets Jessica — beautiful, cavalier, manipulative — who shamelessly trades sex for the gifts it can bring. Convinced that writing a story about Jessica and her ilk would seriously boost her journalistic cred, Emma soon finds herself sucked into a world where the temptations of prettied-up prostitution may outweigh the costs.
