    1. The premise had potential, but this was easily one of the most idiotic books I've ever read in my life. I actually feel stupider for having read it. It isn't so much that the plot wasn't satisfying, but the main character's "voice" was so vapid that I found it hard to believe that she was supposed to be a Ph.D. candidate at the Sorbonne. Furthermore, the one thing that drove me absolutely crazy throughout was the fact that the protagonist made all sorts of witticisms in her conversations that wo [...]

    2. Guys, this is one of the top three worst books I've ever read. I did not go into it expecting classy literature (I figured if you can't read a feminist nightmare of a super trashy book filled with sex scenes in July, when can you?), but I also thought the author might have, say, some grasp of how people actually talk or even the most rudimentary concepts of plot. Here is the best part of this book: the ABSOLUTE BURN of a cover blurb from Kirkus Reviews: "This writer knows her setting." LOL. THAT [...]

    3. I loved this racy book.a modern day tale of the a very modern courtesan in Paris. The author has done her homework and understands the subject matter (famous courtesans) well. She depicts the books heroine and her mentor as courtesans, translating all of the old historical value, into a relatively believed contemporary setting. Great, fun read!

    4. 4 STARSUtterly intoxicating, sumptuous and enthrallingI absolutely adored this read. What a magnificent find from a bargain bin at a second hand bookstore! This novel is quite simply lovely, especially in that it is not what I'd usually pick up, but a story I'll carry with me for all of my days. The joys of reading outside of one's comfort zone! While definitely not a heavy read, so many vital and endlessly relevant messages were interwoven with the story that it was just an absolute pleasure to [...]

    5. This book has so much potential and yet it was such a pain to finish. C'est tragique. The idea of becoming a courtesan in France after a sudden break up sounds like a blast to read about. A poor college student thrust in to the world of money and powerful men? Sign me up. I was so excited to read this book but after the first hundred pages it became a chore to read.Initially I had no issue with the main character. Alexandra kind of stumbles in to this new lifestyle and her thoughts on it were fu [...]

    6. This is a terrible written book. The only review given on the front of the book was 'the writer knows her setting', which you would expect seeing as the writer lives in France. It is described as an erotic novel, but lacks sexual description. I want to feel and live in the moment of the book, not to be told 'we made love for 10hours'Spoiler alert!!She spends months trying to get over her fiancé who ran out on her, only to be back with him at the drop of a hat at the end, with his excuse for run [...]

    7. Amusing and girly vacation read. I picked up this book at Half Price Books for $1 and it was worth every penny. Just kidding. But really.On a real note, I was thoroughly impressed by the life tips and dating advice. Some other review(s) complain about this book's lack of a plot, however, I believe that is the point it is supposed to be an educational memoir, in a way. Lobe does an excellent job of integrating the main character's perspective into the reader's mind, ultimately causing you sympath [...]

    8. This is an entertaining but very naughty novel. It is written like a memoir of sorts and so I wonder if Lobe is talking about herself. She documents the lives of the wealthiest men in France and their courtesans. She is courtesan to the most powerful man in France and receives the gifts worthy of her sexual gymnastics. This is the European version of Sex in The City and I wonder if Lobe saw the series here and moved to Paris to write this version. Lobe's main character finds that she must do an [...]

    9. If you can get through all of the pretentious insertions of French words and phrases throughout and the far fetched reality of the whole situation and the many exclamation points then you'll be fine! (see) Otherwise it was a good escape book and it only took 3 days to finish so what do you have to lose? Lots of sex talk too which I liked!

    10. Hmm, his book bordered soft porn. Took me a bit to get used to. I liked the author's raw sense of humor and found myself bursting with laughter a few times. Worth a read but know what you're getting into -- lots of smut!

    11. A story about an American college student that just fell into the world of the courtesan and made - well - no spoilers - but it struck me as implausible. The perspective of the young woman in question is too coarse and shallow for any of the men in the story to take seriously.

    12. This book is great for those moments you want to be someone else. Imagine stepping into the main character's shoes and juggling three lovers without missing a step or hair appointment. Loved it.

    13. A great summer read - sexy, fun, romantic, and hilarious. This is the third summer I've read this book.

    14. read to much as an autobiography and quite alot of parts very unbelievable such as a french courtesan would not befriend an american 'courtesan' so fast or so nicely
