My name is Cat and I am one sexy, stylin’ lady who just so happens to be a phone sex operator, or as I like to say, conversation specialist. LOL! Now don’t go dissing me until you hear my story, because it’s a good one. I have been an operator for years, and feel it’s my job to make my clients comfortable when talking to me about their fetishes; and trust me, they can get weird. Most clients have your typical fascination with role-play and bondage, but some are really out there. Regardless of the scenario I have to maintain my professionalism. Don’t worry, I won’t get into all the nitty gritty, but I gotta do my job to make ends meet. Especially after my sister Landa, the ho, disappears and dumps her four multicolored kids on me, indefinitely. Ronny is the oldest and he is afraid of his own shadow half the time. Michelle, or as I like to call her, Miss Thang, is a sassy, chubby, pre-teen who is always in the pantry. Zoe, falls somewhere in between and half the time you wouldn’t know she was there. Then there is the baby, Jesse, who is sort of caramel colored. He is a cutie pie but he has a dairy problem and it is rank. I didn’t sign up for this, but I admit the kids are growing on me.

In the meantime, I admit, I get lonely without a man. One of my clients, Dale, has been with me for four years. He is your basic nerdy type who has probably never been laid, but there is something about him I like. Most of the time we just talk during our conversations, but he is ready to meet in person and take things to the next level. I am confident in who I am, given my larger than average size, but I am still not sure I am up for a face to face with Dale. Then there is Ed, now he is HOT. Alright so he is married and has kids, big whoop, he stirs something in me and we have crossed the line from associates to lovers. Suddenly I have gone from being a lonely operator to a woman with two men knocking at my door, literally.

Surprisingly a good book. I wasn’t sure what to expect since Cat is a phone sex operator, but the story has several storylines to keep you engaged in the book. Of course there is Cat’s career, her sister and her 4 kids, Dale – one of Cat’s first customers, some action, some reality tv, love and new life.

There are a few things that I was disappointed with, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story too much. First Cat’s way of speaking, it is very ghetto and just didn’t seem like it should be the way she spoke in life. I don’t know a lot about her upbringing or where she lived, but it is not a way of speaking I expected for a white woman. Secondly, yes the character is overweight and according to the book about 5’1 and 240 lbs. BUT the author makes it seem like she is more like 300 lbs with how certain situations are described – the doctor saying he needs the nurse to hold her legs open for a gyn exam. NO clue why she would write it that way. There are other scenarios and while agree she was overweight, it wasn’t as bad as how it was portrayed.  I did have the opportunity to chat with Julie about these items and she provided her insight into Cat and how she pictured the character.  Made sense and I was glad that Julie was so open to explaining her writing thoughts to me.

Despite those the story was good and checked off several boxes – love, a little mystery/intrigue and real life situations.

We give it 4 paws and really enjoyed the book.
