"Just between us girls, Washington is an easy place to get laid. It's a simple matter of economics: supply and demand. Washington lacks those industries that attract the Beautiful People, such as entertainment and fashion. Instea
I, unlike many reviewers here, liked this book. It was a quick read, I picked it up after dinner and finished it before going to bed. For all the people that 'hated this smut' why'd you pick up the book? Did you think you were getting a conservative political account of what living in DC is like? The authors boobs are on the cover! And she was involved in a sex scandal! If you aren't interested in that 'garbage' maybe you shoul ...more

I am fine with an occasional sex scene or obscenity cast around - but this book was over the top and a little too much. Filled with sex, drugs and some work life, this book was not the "Washington Sex and the City" it was advertised to be.

"Ssh," he warned. "you dont want this incident to end up on the front page of roll call, do you?"
I STOPPED STRUGGLI ...more

The main character is vapid, shallow, unfaithful, manipulative, and those are some of her better qualities. After cheating on her fiance in New York, she moves to DC to live with a friend and try and get a better job. She ends up sleeping around at work, and then writing about it.
Now, to be clear, I think people ...more

1.) If Jessica Cutler wanted to be a writer, she should have spent more time learning to write well - it read like a Live Journal! No descriptive adjectives, not settings, nothing that invited me into the book to sit at the table with these women and watch their lives unfold (which, by the way, Sex and the City happens to do well - the book that th ...more
I'm reading it here and there when I get a minute. It's a quick read and doesn't take much intelligence to digest, since it's essentially soft porn and a lot of curse words ...more
It's worth it as a time-passing read, as it won't occupy your mind
