Whilst this may be only aspects of the authors life I found it very much an exercise in self involved promotion with massive gaps, and not necessarily helpful chronology/ structure.

It is a light and breezy read and will definitely pass the time on a long haul flight or a day at the beach. It is easy enough to put down and pick up; so great as a commute book if on public transport.

However, you do wonder if this is someone who feels the need to try and justify their behavior /actions by documenting their so called men defining moments.
Does the reader need to be reminded ad-nausea she finds confidence in her looks and “absolutely smokin’ hot hot ass etc etc just so you don’t forget how awesome her body is. Funnily enough no pictures of her “fat” years.

As I mentioned gaps and highly selective anecdotes. There is some honesty, not a great amount but a grain here and there. But I keep wondering: Why now? Why release this book? Does she need to bankroll her next Italy trip!
