Book Description

The Last Harem is the true-life experience of Aphrodite Antonia Dorian as a harem-girl to the Sultanate of Brunei. Sexual intrigue and romance highlight her adventures, torn between a love for a boyfriend back at home, and a handsome prince in a foreign country, arguably one of the wealthiest men in the world. Rife with conflict, The Last Harem pulls no punches -- Aphrodite literally fights to survive within the harem inner-circle, as the other women plot and conspire against her when she becomes one of the prince's 'favorites.' Her intense desire to love and be loved saves her from many harrowing tragedies and at the end of the day, she returns home more wise than many, and more gifted than most women in many lifetimes.

This book was terrible, I didn't even bother finishing it.. the writing was fine, it was proof read, but I couldn't form any sort of attachment to the characters!! George the BF (who I assume wrote this garbage) comes across as a total leach, His GF leaves for 6 months and shags another woman then the Prince, then he helps her spend the money she earned on her back. He claims that he has morality issues about spending her money, but goes into a long discourse on how he ordered his meals and booze on her tab during the flight ?!?! WTF?? sorry dude, where I live that's called living off of your woman or in your case, your hooker.. not much better than a pimp!!
And this woman!! she whines the entire time about being raped in japan after going there to work in a strip club, but I kind of get the impression she's just pissed because she didn't get paid for it.. She is a hooker!! period.. at least be honest about that! she is a B list actress who couldn't act, but had a pretty face and body, so she sold it to the highest bidder.. lets just tell it as it is, I am not a prude, I enjoy a good steamy story.. this was grimy and made me feel a bit ashamed of even getting it for my kindle!! Obviously these people have burned through her earnings and now are trying to make some more money.. I'm glad I ordered it while it was free.. there is no substance to the story or either one of the main characters... if your wanting a interesting read.. this is not it...

1.0 out of 5 stars Never read anything worse than this!! July 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! Thankfully I'm a Prime Member and did not have to pay to read this book. The whole book was just horrible and I've not even finished reading it! The grammar, spelling, the sentence structure, the DETAIL were all horrible! I can't help but pick on some details that really bothered me. I
mean, if you can't even get facts like these right, how can we truly believe what you wrote?? For example:

1. The author went back and forth about the duration of the whole Brunei trip in the beginning of the book. At first, it was 6 weeks, then it became a couple of months, and then it became 3 months and then it became back to 6 weeks.

2. A Singapore Airlines trip from
LA to Tokyo is about 18 hours, NOT 9 hours. And Singapore is not 12 hours away! It was stated 12 hours and then a couple of lines after that, it became 2 hours (which was the real duration). The author initially said the whole trip to Brunei would take about 20 hours (which is true), but her stated hours in the book did not tally up to 20 hours at all- not even close!

3. And she got some of her images from Getty Images?!? I guess she just googled the picture and put it on there with the watermark and all.

4. Really?!?? She was THAT innocent and didnt know the whole Brunei deal involved sex?

5. So many repetition of the same info over and over and over again! I was so bored of reading the same damn thing!

I've always loved memoirs and biographies but this one is just terrible. I'll give one star for the effort. Now contemplating if I should continue reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Delusional and pointless... June 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are so many things I hated about this book, I don't even know where to start. First I have to point out that I am very much a libritarian and being one I am of the belief that consenting adults have the right to do what they wish as long as others are not harmed, so her being a high paid prostitute is not a big deal to me.
However, I very much believe in calling a spade a spade. The author is delusional about what her role and all the girls roles are/were in going to Brunei. You are not a friend of the prince, you are not entertainment for simple karaoke jams, you are not there for your good conversation skills. You are there to meet the sexual needs of the men paying the very high price for you be there. You are a prostitute. The authors complete lack of honesty with herself makes the majority of the book nothing more than a rose colored picture of what she wishes was the truth.
Second, the writing itself is awful and so redundant, superfluous, unnecessary... ( get it, its REDUNDANT!!) that I will be seeing "$22,500 a week" in my nightmares.
Thirdly, and this is just a personal prejudice that I own, I hate stereo-typical Hollywood/Burbank, non native Californians. I was born and raised in Southern California and these plastic, fake, vapid, self-serving, brain dead, money hungry, image is everything, wanna-be actor, waste of space type people is one of the reasons I moved out of there at 21. This book was co authored by two of those very people, so it was just another reason to hate this sad little book.
In conclusion, this book sucked on many levels and is nothing more than a desperate aging wanna-be star to try and suck a little more money out of her time as a prostitute, and maybe get a little attention that she so deeply wanted and never really got from Hollywood.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Legal" Prostitution November 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finished the book, but I began to scan most of the latter parts because I felt it was degrading towards the millions of women who work hard to earn a living and support their families.

This story was very entertaining & actually had me chuckling out loud. I enjoyed the peek into a modern day harem but I was pleased that Aphrodite got out of it when she did
