Publisher Comments:

“Attractive, professional, well-spoken, well-dressed 35-year-old woman seeks sugar daddy. I live in Darlinghurst on a 17th floor unit with fantastic skyline views to the harbor. The unit also features very discreet and secure undercover guest parking. I am looking for exclusivity so will (theoretically) be available to you 24 x 7. I am single and don't have any children. I am also a fabulous cook and can provide gourmet meals should you require them. I am a qualified psychologist so I make an excellent listener, and I have a great love of conversation. I have also worked for many years in public relations so am a clever, charming companion in just about any situation. I love sex. I will require a generous weekly allowance in return for all of the above.”

Holly Hill (pseudonym) gave up her job at the behest of her wealthy boyfriend—and then found herself dumped and penniless. After spending six weeks in bed pining for her lost love, she was encouraged by a friend to be "open-minded" about her career choices—and ended up placing an online ad for a sugar daddy. She received an almost overwhelming response from all sorts of men, but most of them were married men whose wives had lost interest in sex. As Holly interviewed the men and settled on a candidate, she decided to record what happened next. Those almost-daily observations became a journal documenting Holly's extraordinary experiences—not just the men she meets, but the things she finds out about marriages, in particular, and what men need from them. Sugarbabe is her real-life account of the emails, meetings, employment of and interactions with the applicants for the role, and the five men she eventually chooses (not all at the same time!). It is by turns funny, enlightening, challenging and thought-provoking.

Review:

"Pseudonym of a psychologist living in Sydney, Australia, Hill recounts her picaresque adventures trying to snag a 'dick' to support her champagne lifestyle and high mortgage. Attractive, lusty, nearing 40, although advertising her age as 35, Hill hoped to duplicate a winning six-month relationship with John, a married 'zillionaire' genius with two children, who had urged her to quit her job as in order to be available full-time for him while he paid lavishly for her living expenses, before unceremoniously dumping her. Developing a 'Mistress Plan,' she sends out a cleverly worded Internet ad asking for ,000 per week in return for exclusive entertaining in her own apartment (cooking, conversation, sex); the responses roll in, mostly from middle-aged, hardworking types in lonely marriages, and she selects three men: American Dick, French-Algerian Jacques, and Chinese Tom. Although Hill exalts in her feminist sense of empowerment, the insecurity proves too punishing, and she decides that finding true love is the answer. In workmanlike prose, she dishes the necessary nuts and bolts and the requisite sex scenes, concluding with a bit of banal wisdom on marital fidelity.

Synopsis:

How far would you go? Based on the controversial real story of a woman in search of a sugar daddy, Holly Hill (pseudonym) gave up her job at the behest of her wealthy boyfriend—and then found herself dumped and penniless. After spending six weeks in bed pining for her lost love, she was encouraged by a friend to be “open-minded” about her career choices—and ended up placing an online ad for a sugar daddy: “I LOVE sex and there’s not much I don’t enjoy . . .” She received an overwhelming response from all sorts of men (her ad got eleven thousand hits) but most of them were married men whose wives had lost interest in sex. As Holly interviewed the men and settled on a candidate, she decided to record what happened next. These almost-daily observations became a journal documenting Holly’s extraordinary experiences—not just about the men she met, but the things she found out about marriages, and in particular, what men need from them.
