The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl by Belle De Jour meets A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen meets Fifty Shades of Grey.
The girl next door reveals her dark secrets of the path she walked down by selling her soul to the devil to help the needy.
What happens if you need to earn serious money to fund your sister through law school and save the hundreds of feral and stray cats in your area? For Cat English, the answer was to work as a call-girl - and be incredibly good at her job.
Briefly Yours is a real-life erotic memoir about the realities behind being the breadwinner in your family, the 'crazy cat lady,' and getting to the top of your game. Returning to the 'real world' with a job in retail was never going to be easy.
With steamy sex scenes, peculiar punters, feisty farmers and cute cats... Briefly Yours is an explosive behind-the-scenes account of Cat English's life: by day as a sexy call-girl and by night as a cat rescuer!
"You've never walked in my shoes..."
I really loved this book. It brought sex work front and center in a way that wasn't demeaning or problematic and I loved that. It was such an interesting read going between Cat's work life and her real life with the cats and her sister and how important both of them were for her in terms of what she did for a living. It was heartwarming to read about how much she cared about the stray and feral cats and how hard she worked to give them what they needed. She's inspirational and very strong and helps to show that sex work is still work and a way to make a living. Highly recommend this.
