Unlike the previous two books by this author this has been marketed as fiction however, the story is about how things may have turned out for Belle and her friends so it will be up to you to decide if you believe this is fiction or what has actually happened. Full of amusing anecdotes and antics as we have come to expect from this author, with honest, straight-forward talking. it may not contain quite the ‘shock’ value of the first book but still makes for an interesting and funny read.

Game over? Belle is starting to wonder if she should call time on the call girl business: get a day job, a life free from secrets and have a 'normal' relationship with the Boy. But will Belle cope with the nine-to-five, a staggering decline in her underwear budget and no more paid sex?
As Belle explores life and love after the game, her story is frank, smart and refreshingly honest. Punctuated with advice, anecdotes and reflections in her inimitable voice, this is a novel of secrets and lies, scabrous wit and more than a little lust.
'An extraordinary number of call-girl memoirs have surfaced recently ... Belle differs from these sexcapades in the most fundamental way, however, in that she can actually write. ... she is brilliant - frank,witty and observant ... Whoever you are, Belle, you can give up the day job and keep writing.' Francesca Segal, THE OBSERVER
