Publisher's Summary

A sexy, fun memoir of a woman in search of love - and money!

"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.

If you could read junk food, this would be it.

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.

I never write negative reviews but don’t waste your time

The main character is obviously Australian. The narrator is not, and does not even attempt to understand the slang. Also, this is the only time I’ve listened to an audiobook where they didn’t edit out burps.
The story is uninteresting and attempts to aggrandize the author as saving marriages by stating that monogamy is impossible due to biology. This is better explained by Esther Perel or Sex at Dawn.
However it’s really just the story of a failed unenthusiastic prostitute justifying her actions.
I have no issue with sex workers I just dislike listening to hours of justifications of why people are bad at their jobs. Also the sex in this sounds like it was written by a guy who has it had much sex.

Author should Google Sugarbabe

Complete yawnfest of amateur (at best) 40 year old fledging sex worker in denial. So bad even narrator sounds bored!

Such a Waste of Time

This book and author tries soooo hard to be sexy and funny and smart. I really had hoped this book would be scandalous and fun. instead it was almost 11 hrs of the same stories and word for word text conversations and long drawn out descriptions of sex with the so called "sugar daddies". It was like a really bad and super long episode of Sex and the City (if the 20 somethings were in their 40's). To make matters worse, the author is 100% convinced that she is a master at intellectual sparring. Meanwhile the conversation sounds like every college kid, late night coked out of their minds thinking that everything they say is super important and meaningful. I would give this book less starts if I could. It probably could have been 1/3 of the length and you would still get the same story.

AWFUL

This is the first book review I've decided to leave. The book is awful...full of repetition. Entire BORING email conversations are read back and forth...raunchy REPETITIVE sex encounters and so on...Desperate boring woman- nothing juicy or exciting.

Painful Narcissistic Junk

This is by far one of the worst books that I have ever attempted to listen to; I do mean attempted because I couldn’t make it beyond the first few minutes. It’s just a painfully awkward narcissistic work of trite
