I do not what I expected when I purchased this book. It ended up being completely different and so much better. It was an amazing story to read. Unlike most books on the market. I really enjoyed this book. I burned through the pages quickly and finished it in record time.
The title and the press for this book leads one to believe that it's all about life in a modern day harem. While this aspect is a portion of the book, it's really the biography of a NJ girl. This book was very disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it.
Absoutely LOVED this book. Got me from the start and never let me go. She starts out talking about her upbringing and how she became an 'escort'. From there it takes her to Prince 'Robin's lair and what all she encounters there. She was told she would originally be there for 2 weeks, and ended up becoming his 2nd favorite and staying for 3 years. Wonderful book and hoping Jillian Lauren writes another one soon.
