Our customer reviews

Scotty Bowers.... Well, all the stars he has written about, and has claimed to have given sexual favours to, are now dead and cannot deny the stories he has written about them! He states that he did all these 'favours' just so he could make the stars 'happy'! I got three quarters of the way through the book and some of his claims were so exaggerated that I could no longer believe his stories. Bowers even includes King Edward and Wallis Simpson among his 'clients'! Read this book with 'tongue in cheek' and enjoy it.show more
