McLennan, purportedly the highest paid Manhattan call girl of her time, has an interesting story no doubt: topping out at $2,000 an hour, she made headlines in 2005 when she landed on the cover of New York magazine. In this memoir, however, the 28-year-old Montreal resident is unfortunately reticent regarding the emotional and psychological details of her sex- and drug-fueled former life. Drawn by fast money and drugs, would-be actress McLennan hooked up with Jason Itzler, owner of the New York Confidential escort service and self-proclaimed "King of All Pimps." She writes with detachment and nonchalance about both the idea and the experience of selling her body for cash (she brought along an imprint machine for clients who preferred to pay by credit card), keeping any part of the business from becoming very interesting. Published in part to capitalize on McLennan's associations with Ashley Dupre, the escort whose liaisons with former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer led to his resignation, this memoir adds little insight.

I'm ashamed to admit that I read this whole book. At times, it was a fun trashy romp through New York's rich, self-absorbed and pointless people. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Jennifer Jeter
