I found this book to be a really entertaining, informative read. Monica is very honest about her life and the porn industry. She doesn't make it sound glamourous, she just tells it like it is from her point of view as an actress. I can appreciate that. It is at times pretty graphic which doesn't bother me, but be forewarned. I didn't give this book 4 or 5 stars because the writing is very elementary, and the flow of the book is kind of awkward. One minute she talking about creampies and orgies, the next her life as a Wiccan? She also tries to make porn sound like a more important job than it really is and there were many times in the book when I thought it could have ended, but she kept going on with more randomness. She also brags about herself quite a bit, but on the other end, she admits to having low self esteem sometimes so maybe the bragging is some sort of self actualization tool.

Anyway, I would recommend this for anyone interested in reading first hand accounts of people in the sex industry. All others probably wouldn't be that interested.
