Product description

Game over? Belle is starting to wonder if she should call time on the call girl business...get a day job, a life free from secrets and have a 'normal' relationship with the Boy. But will Belle cope with the nine-to-five, a staggering decline in her underwear budget and no more paid sex? As Belle explores life and love after the game, her story is frank, smart and refreshingly honest. Punctuated with advice, anecdotes and reflections in her inimitable voice, this is a novel of secrets and lies, scabrous wit and more than a little lust.

Review quote

'Playing the Game keeps the reader entertained and interested, thanks to Belle's quick wit and and straight talking' LONDON LITE 'Belle's first foray into fiction still finds the former call girl on sparkling and outrageous form, as the escapades become even more risky.' THE MIRROR 'impossible to put down.' CITY AM 'Belle does post-coital camaraderie almost better than anything that comes before.' -- Boyd Tonkin THE INDEPENDENT 'An extraordinary number of call-girl memoirs have surfaced recently ... Belle differs from these sexcapades in the most fundamental way, however, in that she can actually write. ... she is brilliant - frank,witty and observant ... Whoever you are, Belle, you can give up the day job and keep writing.' -- Francesca Segal THE OBSERVER
