I like to live vicariously through my reading, and Jillian Lauren's memoir about working in a harem provides an excellent opportunity. Jillian struggled through adolescence, battling emotional abuse from her father and facing her own turbulent mental state. She dropped out of New York University, and explored stripping and worked briefly as an escort to exclusive clientele. When approached with an offer to "entertain" a prominent businessman in Brunei (a small, independently country on the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia), Jillian accepted, without even knowing where Brunei is. It turns out that the businessman is actually Prince Jefri, a member of the elite royal family. Jillian is flown around the world, to find herself a member of an exclusive club of women, all reserved specifically for the prince's pleasure.

As Jillian navigates her newfound luxurious lifestyle, her learning curve is humorous. She is escorted in private jets, bought dazzling jewels and designer clothes, and has a full-time wait staff available to her every need. The relationships between the girls appear sincere and friendly, but in actuality, they are competing not only for the prince's attention and affection, but also for the possibility of marriage. And while the prince is busy or with other women, most time is spent waiting...A unique, potential fairy tale based on the oldest profession of all-time, prostitution.
