Well now, that certainly interesting? Talk about uninhibited!

I wasn't exactly sure what I was expecting with IN THE SERVICE OF WOMEN, but it was entertaining and very erotic. Sarah is very young, 18ish when she is recruited by an escort service that caters to the needs of women, which sometimes includes men, but THIS book is all about the "power of the pussy"! As Sarah's story ramped up, I couldn't help but picture an older woman (when I say older I mean older than her actual age -

I don't normally write reviews for books, even for the books I am totally in love with, like this one. Why? I am scared of sounding like a total idiot!! With that said, where it goes...

DO NOT be afraid to take a chance on this book, while one needs to have an open mind while reading, it truly is a fantastic story & I am so glad that I read it.

I loved this book for more than one reason...

Holy shit this was one hot freaking book! As soon as Sarah met Declan I knew I wanted them to be together and I knew they would be so hot together. This story was absolutely delicious. I did however feel as if the ending was rushed but it was still exceptional!

WOW, just WOW what an amazing story. So far out of my wheelhouse I wasn't sure I'd be able to get thru the first chapter. In reality I couldn't put it down after the first two pages.

It reads a bit like a memoir, but for this story it works. I have to wonder if this isn't the authors memoirs???

At any rate there is some really hot f/f action in this book, but don't let that deter you. If you think it's not your thing, please reconsider and give this story a try. It wasn't really my thing, but da

What a freaking brilliant surprise. This book was an unexpected treat. Freebie for me on Amazon! My inner lesbian loved it and my acutal heterosexual self also loved it!

I immediately took a liking to Sarah and felt like I was on her sexual journey. McClendon writes as if you are inside Sarah's head and I loved her writing style. This tale is fast paced, hot and not at all a lesbian tale. Sarah's clients show her a bit of everything. f/m f/f f/f/f and m/f/f/f/f/m!

I'm giving it an extra star just for the significant amount of F/F sex, which is so rare. Plus, I've always wanted to run a brothel.

This is a story of a confident young lady who gets recruited to a high-end escort service which specializes in providing female sex partners to female clients who want a day without testosterone. Nothing against men, and there are several F/F/M and F/M scenes, but the core premise is these ladies want a day of shopping and lesbian sex.

Hot lesbian sex, with toys and

Recommends it for: Fans of multiple partners, anal sex and dirty talk.
Well that was quite the ride.....

The title had me thinking this book was about a high end female escort being paid to service 'females'. That was true to a point, as each scene begins by Sarah being hired by a female. However from there we are exposed to a number of different senarios from F/F, F/F/M (view spoiler) and group sex.

All in all a very well written entertaining story. (view spoiler)

I loved this book.
This Book is very Sensual and the scenes between the women are very intimate and touching.
Yes the book is about a Female Escort exclusively for other females.
I enjoyed the depth of all the characters and how the Author was able to spring from the pages into your lap.
I highly recommend this book for as well as all others written by this Wonderful Author.

what a devlishly good book!!

Someone tweeted about it and said it was good. So I glanced at the blurb, free for Prime members, no risk! I'm glad I read it!

I was hooked from the beginning.

Sarah is an ordinary girl with ordinary problems. But she also has some amazing skills in the bedroom. Soon she is working for a female escort service and let me tell you some of the scenes are raunchy, amazing, and hot. Jack Jones - we need more of those guys @ as well as Decklan's. :-)

I read this book out of curiosity but wasn't so aware it was some kind of f/f but really the scenes didn't matter to me. and as Sarah said in the beginning you like it or not (something like that)
this book was so well written and wise. Sarah was grounded and courageous and mature a lot more .she was already but she learnt to love. and she made other happy because she take everyone from her heart.
Another character made me wanted to skip a lot of chapters made my day.I liked that character from th

A really enjoyable read - Sarah is an interesting character to say the least. Many of the chapters are hot and most of her clients are also very intriguing. Overall I would have liked a little bit more story and a little bit more about Sarah and Decklan - the last couple of pages seemed a little bit like a rushed ending to a story about a woman who is a free spirit through and through (which is always refreshing) that I would have liked to have gotten to know a little more.

Source: Purchase
Rating: 5/5 stars

NOTE: This story contains explicit sexual scenes and language and is intended for mature audiences only. Do not read this novel if intense sexual situations offend you.

Yep, that warning pretty much covers it!! In the Service of Women is one of the most erotic and intense reads I have encountered in quite some time and it was an excellent read!! The book opens with Sarah, an eighteen year old student with well-above-avera

I found this book rather boring and repetative. I found it difficult to reconcile the actions, attitude, experience, knowledge and wisdom of the main character with the 18 year old she was supposed to be. She may have had to grow up early, but it did not ring true to me at all. Each chapter is essentially another tale of lust with little character development. Towards the back end of the book the author does try to add some, but it came a little too late in the story. I suppose there are only so ...more

I need to preface this review by admitting that I am a compete and utter square and would not have read this book if not for the urging of one of my gr groups. That said, I felt like my brain needed a shower after I read this. It's not a book about sexuality, it's a book about sex as a commodity, which just doesn't sit well with me. Don't misunderstand, I respect people's right to be confident in and comfortable with whatever damn well strikes their fancy so long as nobody directly involved gets ...more

As a fan of m/m, I decided to give this f/f book a shot. The writing was fine and the pages sizzled with the erotic tales of a bisexual woman earning money toward a better life by working as a high-priced call girl. There was certainly enough story to keep me interested until the end, but I must admit to taking breaks and reading other things along the way. It just wasn't my type of story. That said, its purely personal preference. It was interesting to read about Sarah's exploits, why she did i ...more

Another great read from Shayne! With shades similar to her fantastic book The Barter System, In the Service of Women tells the story of Sarah, a woman who gets into the female escort business and begins working her 'fix it' magic on her clients. Sarah's desire to help her fellow women makes her an endearing character, especially when she pairs it with her no bullsh*t approach. As the story moves on, you see Sarah herself grow and realize sometimes it's okay to do what's best for you and to allow ...more

Sarah is a young girl working part-time in a law office when she is recruited as a high-end call girl servicing women. She embarks on a journey of passion and self-discovery that will alter her view of herself and her life. Initiated into a world of passion and excess, she accommodates her clients' every carnal desire.

Each chapter of the book details an encounter with a client, all women, with varying requests anywhere from screwing in public, a threesome, a little light BDSM, to an orgy. I enj

After reading the reviews I was ready for an awesome story. Sadly, I was mistaken. This story is the equivelent of "50 Shades" only with women, more sexual detail, and less of a plot. The section where she justs lists characters is very poorly done. I just finished the book and couldn't tell you a single think about any of the lesser characters because they are LITERALLY intruduced in a list. There is no story in lists. I just think that this could have been done better in so many ways.

I waited over a year to read this book and I think I put it on a pedestal that set me up for disappointment
It was a great build up, sometimes it was a bit much. I got bored that there was no true love story. Not for lack of content or sex scenes, but it fell short of a love story. Don't know if that's what it was to be.

This just wasn't the book for me. Not realistic any way. I felt like I was reading a collection of Penthouse Forum letters.
