Bought (CLOSED)

Anna David, relationship, sex and addiction expert writer of the best-selling book Party Girl and the upcoming novel Bought, brings you a tale of high-class prostitution in Hollywood.

An LA-reared aspiring journalist, Emma Swanson gathers banal quotations from celebrities on press lines, publicly yearning for a more substantial job and privately hoping for a hot-shot boyfriend to transport her into the Hollywood social scene she's always gazing in on from the outside. Actually, she'd settle for the thriving occupation: after all, she speculates that joining the ranks of successful journalism will allow her the acceptance she desires, anyway.

Then she meets Jessica, a cavalier and manipulative beauty who shamelessly trades sex for the gifts it can bring. Convinced that writing a story on Jessica and her ilk will give her the career she wants -- and positive that the Jessica's of the world have inestimable power -- Emma gets sucked into the orbit of Jessica's brand of prettied-up prostitution. But she soon realizes that her problem isn't the lack of a boyfriend or impressive job. It's who and what she's become -- and whether or not she'll be able to find her way back.
