Young, beautiful, and hungry, Esme, Maire, and Niki want what every woman wants: love, work, safe shelter, the bills paid off, a diamond-studded Rolex and a two-bedroom condo with an ocean view. Working as sugar babies seems to be the only way to make this happen. But the sugar life is more dangerous than they thought.
I found this book interesting. Three young women enter the life of being professional girlfriends. Meaning they are paid by older men to be on call 24/7 for sex. The girls are arm candy to rich and powerful older men who want pretty young girls on their arms that enjoy any and all kinds of sex.
Maire, the oldest at 27, takes up with a 73 year-old man who funds her start-up business called Arranged Relations. She's the founder of the professional girlfriends. Little does Maire know that her Sugar Daddy, Ted, falls hard for another sugar baby, as these girls are called, and strategically removes Maire from his life by way of his son. Esme, the sugar baby Ted has on the side. She ultimately becomes the sugar baby for his son. Niki is another sugar baby who Ted hooks up with. All of these players are wound together by so many other side storylines. I wanted to yell at Esme for feeling sorry for herself for getting in this situation and tell her she did this to herself. If she didn't want her boyfriend pimping her out to earn money to buy a bar, then she shouldn't have done it.
I enjoyed reading about how these girls coped with being in the sugar life and apparently it's a lot harder, emotionally and sometimes physically, than one might think.
