Reviews

“Gigolo is a well-written memoir, exposing Ben’s feelings such as how being desired by beautiful women boosted his lacking self-esteem. What I particularly liked is how it provides insight into London’s class structure, like old money versus the Nouveau riche. I think both male and female readers will enjoy this wild ride.”
Underrated Reads

“A stunning and surreal look at class and power, this book is a revelation.”
Whippet Reads

“Wow! This book holds nothing back as Ben writes about his life as a masseur that ends up being paid to do more than give massages to rich women. The author was honest in how he felt about what he was doing to make money and in how it impacted his marriage. Great hot and steamy read!”
Cristie Underwood (Reviewer)

“This is a story about a massage therapist who gets in over his head with some very rich society women… You have to read this story of sex, coercion, unfaithfulness and loose morals… Great plot and writing.”
Marie Angel (Reviewer)

“I read this book in one sitting and I might never look at a physiotherapist the same way… thoroughly entertaining and sexy.”
Kristell Talbot (Reviewer)

“An unputdownable read.”
Roman Clodia (Reviewer)

“Gigolo is an entertaining romp.”
Dave Blendell (Reviewer)

    Is Ben single now?

  131. Want to know more please? Where is Ben now?

  132. Wow just wow. More please.

  133. Amazing true story. Readers choice I like what read. This could actually be true. My opinion is a definite yes.

    A man’s life torn between his family and wanting the best for them, the only opportunity he had was to take a big risk.

    And paid the price.

    Be interested to see where he is now in life? Personally I would was torn by the ultimate question.

    Would I have done the same?

    If his goal was simply for the benefit of his family.

    Difficult choices must have been made.

    And yes a film would be extremely welcome.

    Good luck guys.

  134. Very addictive could not put it down, had to read in one day.

    Bloody good book. Our book club all agreed. “Movie”

    Very enjoyable.
    Gets my vote, plus family and friends votes. We can’t wait for the movie.

  135. The subject may appear at first glance to be frivolous, but the book has great depth and subtext. It is in many ways about the British class system, poverty and how it is no longer possible for a family to survive on one wage – the reason why Ben Foster was driven (without much persuasion, it has to be said) into the world of glamour, money and the sexual pursuits of the superrich.

  136. Great book!

  137. A great read!

  138. From down and out to up and about. Well written account of human frailty turning to strength in a world of sex, money and influence.

  139. Don’t judge a book by its cover “literally” better than I expected.

    Not so much of a Gigolo,more of a chancer who took risks for all the right reasons.

    When I first picked up this book I thought I was wasting my time then I read the synopsis and was intrigued.

    Completely hooked after first chapter.

    It definitely covers a lot of current affairs and tells it how it is completely.

    This book definitely ticks a multitude of reasons to read.
    Fantastic read, well written and definitely controversial.

    A real inspiring read. A must read.

  140. This guy has certainly been there and done it!!!

    A gripping read….

    Whatever next….

  141. Love this book.
    Good luck I really hope you win.

    You deserve it with this amazing read.

    I Was totally engrossed from start to finish. I really didn’t want Gigolo to end. A bit sad because I don’t think I will find another like it. Fresh talent for certain. Definitely one to look out for in the future.

  142. After reading I’d like to apply for a private massage please. How can I reach you?
