In this sexy, darkly funny, and surprisingly poignant memoir, famed New York call girl Natalie "Natalie" McLennan reveals her full story for the first time. A cautionary tale about a bright, confident young woman who sells her future for easy money and glamour, "The Price" takes readers inside the world of the 25 year old girl "New York" magazine labeled "The $2,000-An-Hour Hooker."
McLennan, purportedly the highest paid Manhattan call girl of her time, has an interesting story no doubt: topping out at $2,000 an hour, she made headlines in 2005 when she landed on the cover of New York magazine. In this memoir, however, the 28-year-old Montreal resident is unfortunately reticent regarding the emotional and psychological details of her sex- and drug-fueled former life. Drawn by fast money and drugs, would-be actress McLennan hooked up with Jason Itzler, owner of the New York Confidential escort service and self-proclaimed "King of All Pimps." She writes with detachment and nonchalance about both the idea and the experience of selling her body for cash (she brought along an imprint machine for clients who preferred to pay by credit card), keeping any part of the business from becoming very interesting. Published in part to capitalize on McLennan's associations with Ashley Dupre, the escort whose liaisons with former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer led to his resignation, this memoir adds little insight.

Keeps you interested
Very quick read. The story is told well and keeps you interested the entire time.
Fun & exciting!
Easy to read, fun book that keeps interest with all things sinful.
I feel like at the end of this book all she did was pull the "poor helpless me card" which most escorts do after being caught because they don't want to be judged. Others will never understand escorting because its so taboo and society has said it's not okay. If anyone seen the doc Client 9: Eliot Spitzer, I think she acted way different on there. She took the stance of "Yes men pay us thousands of dollars and escorting is a great" idk just my thoughts but still is a very good read. But the ending was rushed!
